    General Etiquette on the site & Code of Conduct

    Welcome to Moorcock's Miscellany, a website dedicated to expanding knowledge of Michael Moorcock the writer of numerous books featuring epic characters like Elric The White Wolf and Jerry Cornelius. Michael Moorcock's concept of a multiverse made its way into other media such as film, music, magazines and online. Since 1996 has been frequented by Michael and in one form or another has had a public dialog via what we call the Q&A. All people are welcome to join us to pose questions, thoughts, media and information. Be an occasional reader or an active member. If you have rare information, please post an article. Publish a review or start threads in the forums. Your presence, either lurking or posting, is what we desire most. You will find many interesting bits of information. No hate and no porn please. If you have a specific question, please try a search first. This is in consideration of Michael's time for us all. Also consider whether or not you are posting "on topic". If you have an idea that is so different from the start of the thread, perhaps a new topic would better serve your idea. You should also consider if your post belongs outside of the Q&A.

    Those who post here can expect others to chime in and expand upon their ideas and questions. There may come a time when you ask a redundant question and the community will quickly chime in with advice. It is also possible that Michael won't get the chance to answer at all. Since Mr. Moorock visits this site when he has the time, you can expect that there may be a gap between the time of your post and an opportunity for him to respond. Please be patient. Visitors and members are reminded that new posters may be asking Michael their "first ever" question. Please give Michael a little time to respond, especially when the question isn't a repetitive one. Above all, please be considerate and respectful of one another. Feel free to debate as fervently as you like, but let's not resort to name calling and other negativity. There is no way for a single person to enforce these guidelines. Please join us in the truest spirit of community and help keep this place something to enjoy.

    Avoid excessive quoting in your posts. Simply quote the parts of the preceding posts that are relevant to your current reply. Also avoid the insertion of giant images into your post, or images that have excessive animations. Giant signatures should be edited down to their smallest possible form. Please make your posts well formed, concise and relevant. Consider the pleasure of others rather than your own pleasure first. It is fun to post, but reading posts that are malformed and gaudy become a chore to read and are generally overlooked. Consider your audience. Long winded, irrelevant, confusing posts are simply ignored by most readers.

    Thank you so much for visiting.

    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords
