Community Etiquette

Community etiquette is not always easy, particularly with so many people from so many different backgrounds and customs.

Remember members give freely of their time and expertise, so be respectful and first search the FAQ section and forum before asking a question. If you have a gruff response from a member it is likely you have not bothered to help yourself.

In general spamming existing posts to earn coins will be unwelcome and may result in a forum ban.

Please do use the like, dislike, agree, disagree, funny, winner, informative and the other options for an existing post as an abbreviation of a compliment or view, not an emoticon by itself in a separate reply.

Generally an emoticon or image only post is only acceptable when it truly captures the moment and in those cases it is usually a custom image that someone has deliberately gone looking for to achieve that end. It is like telling a good joke, it has to be well timed and appropriate to the flow of the thread. Here is an example where the thread is about speed controlled fans: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/speed-controlled-fan-dirt-3.6137/#post-67199

Criticizing without first engaging with the community is likely to be regarded as an insult. You may well have and are entitled to post an opinion, but be mindful that there is a huge repository of combined member experience so be respectful and do a search on the topic beforehand. @SeatTime captured the essence of community expectation thus:

"Ask any of the members here, building a sim is not a straight forward process, what type of sim you build is not only a personal choice, but how you build it will be based on many things, technical background, what you may have access to etc...etc. There is really no best way. Members do have a life away from sims, so any information given and placed on this site is gold and will save you time and money. Be happy that this site exist at all and is manned by a great group of people. So you have to do a bit of reading and pose some questions ... think of it as a right of passage": http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/sim-builds-and-materials-used.6694/#post-74143

Thus members here all should value these points in there reply/posts :
- Positive and compassionate attitudes
- Honest recognition of own strengths and weaknesses
- Patience and diplomacy while debating
- Disciplined to remain on-topic
- Solo and cooperative problem solving
- Proper English posting and correct spelling as possible
- Pictures/videos are highly appreciated as a slandered universal language .
