Forum Rules and Etiquette

Our mission ...

This forum is part of our mission to promote the preservation of vintage computers through education and outreach. (In real life we also run events and have a museum.) We encourage you to join us, participate, share your knowledge, and enjoy.

This forum has been around in this format for over 15 years. These rules and guidelines help us maintain a healthy and active community, and we moderate the forum to keep things on track. Please familiarize yourself with these rules and guidelines.


Rule 1: Remain civil and respectful

There are several hundred people who actively participate here. People come from all different backgrounds and will have different ways of seeing things. You will not agree with everything you read here. Back-and-forth discussions are fine but do not cross the line into rude or disrespectful behavior.

Conduct yourself as you would at any other place where people come together in person to discuss their hobby. If you wouldn't say something to somebody in person, then you probably should not be writing it here.

This should be obvious but, just in case: profanity, threats, slurs against any group (sexual, racial, gender, etc.) will not be tolerated.


Rule 2: Stay close to the original topic being discussed
  • If you are starting a new thread choose a reasonable sub-forum to start your thread. (If you choose incorrectly don't worry, we can fix that.)
  • If you are responding to a thread, stay on topic - the original poster was trying to achieve something. You can always start a new thread instead of potentially "hijacking" an existing thread.



Rule 3: Contribute something meaningful

To put things in engineering terms, we value a high signal to noise ratio. Coming here should not be a waste of time.
  • This is not a chat room. If you are taking less than 30 seconds to make a post then you are probably doing something wrong. A post should be on topic, clear, and contribute something meaningful to the discussion. If people read your posts and feel that their time as been wasted, they will stop reading your posts. Worse yet, they will stop visiting and we'll lose their experience and contributions.
  • Do not bump threads.
  • Do not "necro-post" unless you are following up to a specific person on a specific thread. And even then, that person may have moved on. Just start a new thread for your related topic.
  • Use the Private Message system for posts that are targeted at a specific person.


Rule 4: "PM Sent!" messages (or, how to use the Private Message system)

This forum has a private message feature that we want people to use for messages that are not of general interest to other members.

In short, if you are going to reply to a thread and that reply is targeted to a specific individual and not of interest to anybody else (either now or in the future) then send a private message instead.

Here are some obvious examples of when you should not reply to a thread and use the PM system instead:
  • "PM Sent!": Do not tell the rest of us that you sent a PM ... the forum software will tell the other person that they have a PM waiting.
  • "How much is shipping to ....": This is a very specific and directed question that is not of interest to anybody else.


Why do we have this policy? Sending a "PM Sent!" type message basically wastes everybody else's time by making them having to scroll past a post in a thread that looks to be updated, when the update is not meaningful. And the person you are sending the PM to will be notified by the forum software that they have a message waiting for them. Look up at the top near the right edge where it says 'Notifications' ... if you have a PM waiting, it will tell you there.

Rule 5: Copyright and other legal issues

We are here to discuss vintage computing, so discussing software, books, and other intellectual property that is on-topic is fine. We don't want people using these forums to discuss or enable copyright violations or other things that are against the law; whether you agree with the law or not is irrelevant. Do not use our resources for something that is legally or morally questionable.

Our discussions here generally fall under "fair use." Telling people how to pirate a software title is an example of something that is not allowable here.


Reporting problematic posts

If you see spam, a wildly off-topic post, or something abusive or illegal please report the thread by clicking on the "Report Post" icon. (It looks like an exclamation point in a triangle and it is available under every post.) This send a notification to all of the moderators, so somebody will see it and deal with it.

If you are unsure you may consider sending a private message to a moderator instead.


New user moderation

New users are directly moderated so that we can weed spammers out early. This means that for your first 10 posts you will have some delay before they are seen. We understand this can be disruptive to the flow of conversation and we try to keep up with our new user moderation duties to avoid undue inconvenience. Please do not make duplicate posts, extra posts to bump your post count, or ask the moderators to expedite this process; 10 moderated posts will go by quickly.

New users also have a smaller personal message inbox limit and are rate limited when sending PMs to other users.


Other suggestions
  • Use Google, books, or other definitive sources. There is a lot of information out there.
  • Don't make people guess at what you are trying to say; we are not mind readers. Be clear and concise.
  • Spelling and grammar are not rated, but they do make a post easier to read.

    Macintosh and Apple II Items for Sale

    I've been sick and had a bunch of personal issues the past couple months, so if you've already contacted me about something give me some more time to go through all of my messages and reply. I know there is at least one member that wants a monitor in my possession and I have an inbox full of other messages about things I've posted in the somewhat recent past that I will get to.

    Shipping is not included in the prices below and will be from St. Louis MO 63109.
    • Macintosh IIfx ROM SIMM (makes a SE/30 32-bit clean) $45
    • Several Macintosh IIci's and a few IIcx's - I still need to clean and test all of them, if they are functional they are $40 each and have A/UX 3.0 (configurations vary and need to be verified)
    • AppleColor High Resolution RGB Monitor (2 of them) $25/each
    • AppleColor RGB Monitor for the IIgs (4 of them some with minimal engraving on the side) $40/each
    • Apple Macintosh 12" RGB Monitor (2 of them) $25/each
    • Apple II SCSI Card (Rev C) with SCSI Expander and SCSI hard drive (internal SCSI hard drive solution, really cool IIgs HD solution) $275
    • Apple IIgs system with keyboard, mouse, 3.5" and 5.25" floppy drives $100
    • Macintosh SE/30 ROM SIMM (not to be confused with the IIfx one above) $10
    • Radius Rocket 33 (basically a Quadra 040 on a card, really neat item) $90
    • Applied Engineering Transwarp 4300 (40Mhz accelerator with FPU and cache options) $90
    • Macintosh 128k/512k/Plus keyboard (older beige color but with numeric pad, cable included) $40
    • Macintosh 128k/512k/Plus keyboard (platinum color with numeric pad, cable included) $40

    • NEC External SCSI CD-ROM Drive (6x I believe) - $30
    • Apple SC40 External SCSI Hard drive (believe the drive is 230MB though) - $60
    • Apple External SCSI Hard Drive (newer Lacie style case with Apple logo) 805MB drive - $60
    • Apple Macintosh Plus in original box with ALL original materials/manuals/disks in nice shape - $200
    • Macintosh Color Classic - working fine but needs CRT adjustment as magenta bleeds through more than other colors - $100
    • Power Macintosh G3 desktop - $50
    • Macintosh II - working condition but does throw bus error sometimes, never had time to diagnose properly - $120
    • Apple IIgs without power supply with 1MB memory expansion card - $30

    • Power Macintosh 7200 (unsure of specs at this time) - $35
    • Macintosh SE/30 with ethernet card (does not power up but can hear a slight hum when the power switch is flipped on) - $25

      What ROM revision are those IIgs units? I’ve got two nearly useless-to-me ROM 00 units, and finding a ROM 03 bare board or CPU-unit-only to replace them with (that I can afford, I mean) has proven awkward. The complete system will tell you its ROM version when you turn it on (or possibly when you go into the boot ROM control panel, I’m not an expert and can’t remember exactly) and the dead one will have a visibly different motherboard if only one of them is a ROM 03.

        I will have to check, I want to say one is a ROM01 and one is a ROM03. I owe some other members photos that I've neglected to provide up until now. This evening I have set some time aside to take and send pictures. I'll photograph the IIgs units and let you know the ROM revisions.

          If anyone is interested in the Macintosh II, I will take less than what I originally stated, make me an offer. I'd like to see that one go to a good home for its collectable value.

            I can come up with the chips to turn your ROM 00 into a ROM 01. PM me if interested.
