It is Friday here in Australia 5 Pm and the end of my working week, I'm looking to install a c4 tonight. Have a good weekend, I'll catch up again on Monday, Thanks for all you comments so far , please keep them coming.
Agree on the use of a specific question in the title. There are a lot of people who don't have a lot of time to futz around on fun sites like this, so we skim the topics. I have to admit that the "what's wrong?" or "need help" threads go right by me.
And while it's not been a problem that I can recall on this group, the use of all caps is bad etiquette. I find an all caps message to be distracting and uncomfortable to read, and just plain refuse to read them.
Should be easy peasy. My general rule is 'don't piss off anyone unless they're being an *** or are known to frequently be rude'. Eye for an eye and all that. I will not help out someone who constantly responds in a condescending fashion or refuses to take advice that they've asked for in the first place. People who constantly talk about what they've done but refuse to help others with their similar goals really piss me off and I consider that extraordinarily rude. If you are on a forum that's for helping people, either share your information or don't say anything at all. No need to go 'oh well I solved that problem but I can't tell you how to do it because it's a secret!' I am currently working on a website where all of the writeups for my installations and instructions for whatever I've built custom will be available to the public. Yeah, I could refuse to tell people how to do stuff and charge money for whatever I make... and then I'd be even less useful than before!
I try to make sure that I thank anyone who has offered me advice (usually in one post if there are multiple people to thank, because otherwise the thread gets really crowded). Even if I'm not taking the advice I will thank them because they spent time on their response. Exception is rude / condescending people (see above).
So really, I guess just don't be rude. Like Gypsy said, act as if it's real life. If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't say it on the internet. Others can see this stuff and everything you ever say is saved. Don't mess it up!
