 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

We really need some sort of guidelines on what is accepted to post on this forum.
A set of rules is in place.

Maybe say something about:
Max banner/footer size and content.
-->[something like]Either use an image that is a link, or a link, in addition to a link to any affiliated companies.
How to search efficiently, and that is expected to do so.
Where to post what.

[size=14]Do:[/size]
Share Knowledge
Accept that this community is an international one, and some will not be able to write English correctly
Be Helpful
Always assume that a post is meant in the best possible way. Interpret it to the better.

[size=14]Do Not:[/size]
Start Threads Only For The Sake Of Starting Them
Crosspost
Bump Threads

[edit]I am/might seem a bit out-of-place on this one but the 'rules' stated are only meant as examples.
The rules would, ofcourse, have to come from higher authority, in order for them to be useful.

/me humbly request some rules that can be referred to when someone (with or without bad intent) post something(s) that are unacceptable or behave in a 'bad' way.

• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

Two things...

1. In order for the rules to have any meaning, there has to be at least some moderation.  Is that possible?  Who "owns" this forum?  Are they willing to concede some power to regular participants?

2. RE: Do Not Bump Threads.  Sometimes this is helpful.  Often I won't have time to respond to all messages I'd like to.  A little bump reminds me, "hey, I meant to help that person."  I suggest something like "Do not bump threads more than once every three days and never more than twice."

Being 11 is not an excuse for bad manners.

There already is moderation, just not enough (in my opinion).

I think there is a difference as to how one bumps. If one says *bump* only, that should be forbidden. At leas I think so.
One can, and should, state something like this:
Quote
Since last post I've tried this:
Code:
//some code with a few tweaks
List some useful comments on the experiences made since last post, and maybe take time to thank those who have helped you.
If one have obtainen any information useful for the helper, write that too.

If the rules are too vague, one will never be able to use them in a... well useful way. (once again, my opinion smiley )

This should be [glow]STRICTLY[/glow] forbidden if you ask me.
It's just not what I want the Arduino community to accept.

We should value information, and give before we take.

God, I feel like we're in Lord of the Flies...

We definitely need rules/moderators. I wasn't really aware that we didn't have any. I've been familiar with how forums work ever since i first joined one (it's common sense really).
