Forum Etiquette

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.

Do:
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.

Do Not:
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.

:)[/edit]

dont make this like roblox.
i got banned so many times becouse they are soo mean there.
but yeah, some rules would be nice =P

I’ll second the OP’s suggestion. Although I don’t know who you might be refering to.

Seems to be approaching a near spam level. :slight_smile:

Please do not post if it is not directly related to this statement:

I expect the replies below this to be arguments for or agains a guidelines/rules section.

I would love to hear your ideas on this :slight_smile:

yeah, i would agree,

no bumping threads

but lets say sombody knocked out our thread, how would we get them to see that?

good tho

WHAT ?

We’re all doomed, dooomed, dooooooomed !

Wanna bikit !

one more thing…

you’ve just been wormed.

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:

Since last post I’ve tried this:

//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 :slight_smile: )

This should be STRICTLY 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.

^stay on topic >_>

alphabeta, im TRYING not to start a flamewar

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).

Honestly, I thought somebody is testing an artificial intelligence engine.
Was I wrong? Is this true?

If it’s true, they need to go back to the drawing board.

Lord of the Flies. Hmmm. So who’s the pigs and who’s the hunters ?

I think Mr. I-Parakeet a.k.a “Kevin S.”, “kevin duino” just needs some fine tuning. Maybe we should have a “GAGA board” for AI tests.

Honestly, I thought somebody is testing an artificial intelligence engine.

Unfortunantly I think there is nothing artificial nor intelligent? about this engine of yours. ::slight_smile:

Got to check:
@madworm - your banner is a joke right? ;D

Glad to hear I am not the only one who thinks this. :slight_smile:

Most is ‘common sense’, but then again, ‘common sense’ is relative. ::slight_smile:

@madworm I don’t think he’d pass. Really makes me want to avoid kids :stuck_out_tongue:
