Netiquette

Post by Uli » 19 Oct 2019 12:06

By participation in this forum you agree with this Netiquette.
  1. Never forget that there is a human being on the other side. Please assure that the text you write is really worth to be read.
  2. Read your contribution once again before pressing "Send". Pay attention to spelling, grammar and expression. It is much easier for a reader to read the text if it is formatted and written in a reasonable way
  3. Do not use abusive words and please respectfully treat each other.
  4. Gestures and facial expressions do not work on internet. Express yourself clearly or use "emoticons" for example to express e.g. irony in a better way.
  5. Do not use too many abbreviations, because another user may not be familiar with.
  6. In case of a disagreement, please do not try to discuss the topic to the bitter end. Either use the "private message" feature or just let "grass grow over it". The wiser one gives way.
  7. For long threads please use the "quote" function. So the thread is still understandable even after years and is more pleasant to read.
    Before writing about an already solved problem please use the search function.
  8. Once a problem has been resolved with the help of a user a short confirmation (e.g. RESOLVED] would be helpful to subsequent users. This also applies to self-corrected problems. A short description of the solution is sufficient in most cases.
  9. Discrimination, racism and sexism is in no way acceptable and will be deleted without comment.
We reserve the right to block or ban users who fail to comply with these rules and to delete the affected postings.
