Forum Etiquette - Plz Read & Sign TY!

Post by Kathyfrances on Sun Jan 31, 2016 10:54 am

First topic message reminder :

~ FORUM ETIQUETTE ~

From time to time it is a good idea to refresh ourselves on forum etiquette. I guess we get comfortable, take off our shoes, and then realize one day we are out in public in our jammies & barefoot, LOL! Seriously, there are things that everyone can do to make sure that we are at our best, help reduce drama, and just make group-time more enjoyable for everyone.

Here are some suggestions to consider...

1. Read the forum rules. That goes for any group you are in. It gives you an idea of what goes on, and what shouldn't.

2. Reread the forum rules. They do change according to the groups' needs and as new situations arise.

3. Be kind, courteous, & forgiving. Sometimes we find things offensive that were not intended as such.

4. Don't shout - using ALL UPPER CASE LETTERS is considered shouting (and not in a nice way) on the Internet. 

5. Use exclamation points sparingly. Too many is the same as shouting. Unless of course you are celebrating, then go for it!

6. Avoiding slang and texting abbreviations. Not everyone is familiar with them or their meanings, and it is hard enough to get points across the way they are intended without struggling to make sense of slang and text abbreviations.

7It is easy to misinterpret written humor.  Sometimes the inclusion of an emoji can help convey humor, otherwise, use humor sparingly. Sarcasm in written form does not convey the way you think it will.

8. When requesting tags, be courteous. Don't demand - taggers are doing this for fun and as a favor. They do not get a paycheck.

8. When picking up tags, a genuine thank you is appreciated. Tossing out a 'thanks' or 'saved' when a tagger has worked so hard is little off-putting. Let them know you like tag, etc. Nothing fancy, just something heartfelt is appreciated!

10. Do not PM/e-mail/etc. a tagger and ask for a tag you have seen anywhere else and ask them to make you one. This puts the tagger in an untenable situation. Please don't put them on the spot like that!

11. What goes on at a group is just that - group business. Please don't chat about what is going on at one site to another site. This also includes sharing of a group's skins, games, activities, etc. Please be respectful of any group you are a member of.

These ideas are merely refreshers!
  I think EFR is simply awesome and the best on the web. 
But in my travels I have seen some things that made my eyes pop right 
out of my head! So I thought I would post this gentle 
reminder....I know it was a wake-up call for me.

Thanks for reading & your time!
Hugs, Kathyfrances

Read and understand and might I add one: if someone speaks to you in the chat thread, if possible acknowledge it.
