Default OPERATION:IRON FIST is now in effect

As was announced last week, Operation:Iron Fist is in full effect. Read about it here.

With that being said, the following will begin to happen:

1. All non-development threads started in the Development section will be moved to the appropriate section and/or closed and the "responsible" poster (in quotes because the fact they posted in the wrong section clearly brings into question whether or not they are responsible) will be infracted.

2. Any abusive posts directed at any user will be deleted and the abuser will be infracted and/or given a temporary vacation. Multiple instances will result in a longer leave-of-absence, and if it continues you will be removed from XDA. You, and your behavior, are not welcome at XDA.

3. Any off-topic posts in the Development section threads will be deleted. These are non-helpful, and certainly not development posts. This includes the following:
  • "OMG THIS IS SO GREAT!"
  • "WOW! YOU ROCK AND I WANT TO HAVE YOUR BABIES!"
  • "THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!"
  • "THANKS FOR THIS!"
If you want to thank someone for their work, do so by clicking the "THANKS" button on their post.

4. Any post, in any section, that is done to further post count will be deleted and you will face possible infraction.

5. Anything else that goes against the XDA Forum Rules and XDA Mantra will be dealt with firmly, but fairly.

Ahh - perfect example. It's both - and not needed in a Development thread. Use Thanks.
