    10 ways on “How to be a Good Forum Member”

    Post by raskal_86 on 24.05.09 4:31

    1. Don't get mad when a thread you made
    goes unanswered. Did you just post a statement? People like to answer
    questions. Give them something to work with. Start a conversation and
    people will respond.

    2. Remember that it's not always about you. If someone's extremely
    excited, for example, about their new computer, don't come in and say,
    "Well, mine beats yours." Give that person time to shine, to be
    excited. Give up the spotlight once in a while.

    3. When you are angry, cranky, sad, etc., you may come across
    differently than you think. I've posted when I've been cranky, and each
    time it bites me on the butt. If you do feel the need to post when your
    emotions are high, read, and re-read your post to make sure it can't be
    taken in a way you didn't intend.

    4. Ignore spam. When you reply to it, it just brings it back to the top
    of the page. Let it crawl down the page into oblivion. You don't have
    to bump it up for the Mods to see.

    5. Don't create spam. The only person who thinks spam is cool is the
    person who created it. The rest of us look at it and think, "How
    pathetic is he/she?"

    6. Understand that others will have viewpoints completely different,
    and perhaps foreign, than your own. This is one of the things I love
    about the Internet and forum interaction. Here, you get to see opinions
    from those of different religions, backgrounds, and experiences. Learn
    from it. Respect their opinion. It's okay to debate but remember, there
    is another person on the other side.

    7. Want to move up the ranks of well-liked members? Reply to the posts
    of others with a reply that took some thought. If all you have to say
    is "that's cool", try to ask a question of the person as well. There
    are instances where the post is so awe-inspiring that all you can say
    is "that's cool," but don't make
    2-word replies your trademark.

    8. Experience life outside of the virtual world and you will find you
    have much more to talk about when you return. If you're sitting there,
    staring at the monitor, wondering "what kind of thread should I make
    today," then you're thinking too hard.

    9. Understand that others will make mistakes. We're all human. Remember
    when you first started out, what a scary moment it was when you first
    hit that "send" button? Have compassion for your fellow members and
    don't be so quick to point a finger. Offer to help them and you may
    just find a new friend.

    10. Have fun, read the Rules, and participate. If you feel you are
    getting upset about a thread, or you are sitting there bored out of
    your mind, go find something else to do. We'll still be here when you
    come back, and hopefully you'll have something really great to share
    with us when you return.
