Some of the most important rules of all I want to quote here:
“1. Think first, then post
PMIGBOM (Put mind in gear before opening mouth) – on the other end of the data line there is also only a human being. So never write anything you wouldn’t tell the other one in front of others. Express yourself unmistakeably. You better read your message again before you post it, that means: sending it.
If you are writing ironically or if you are not at all serious mark these passages with smileys (like )… Silly sayings are allowed an desirable in some areas only.
Check the tone in the forum in question very well and omit vulgarity and flames. Everyone has got his right for a free opinion.
Never criticize anyone on behalf of ability to express or orthographic mistakes.”
and they enjoy an accordingly negative reputation by most of the readers...“2. Brevity is the soul of wit!
News that extend over several pages not liked that much, so keep it short and express yourself precisely. We like to see the inserting of original text (“quoting”) which makes sense as long as there are only few words ore some lines copied. The authors of so called “Mega Quotes” or “Full Quotes”, ie a completely quoted post with a comment as short as possible at the end of the post are called Full Quotidiot …”
But not only here it sometimes lacks, equally disturbing are contentless postings and remarks to each and every topic.
Furthermore a special advice: The ranking system has not got any rank higher than “Forumane”, so you can’t win another trick here.
The moderators and me are really not keen on spending our limited time by stowing away the “derailments” of a few in order to keep up the positive and friendly atmosphere of all others in our forum.
Since I’m not a native speaker I would appreciate corrections an improve proposals.
