    Default Forum etiquette


    I was asked recently by a new member about site etiquette, manners and what was expected of them in general. To avoid repeating myself I thought it would be better to post a topic here that everyone can read.

    In short - We welcome positive contributions.

    If you follow common sense and don't abuse other members, cause them harm or loss, keep religion and politics to a minimum then you will fit in just fine and we welcome your membership here. If you're not sure, why not lurk a while, read the forums, take your time and get to know how the site works before joining in?

    I also suggest you read the site rules because there are one or two things you can and will be banned for.

    Once you've done this, why not tell us a little about yourself at the 'Introductions' thread? This is not a pre requisite but some members have taken offence at new users steaming in and selling their wares or asking for a job without taking the time in getting to know long time members and building some kind of relationship first.

    Fair point! Why would they give any business or a job to a complete stranger?

    im glad you brought this up cos ive had an issue with this already. harking back to an earlier topic about guest users. some people only come here for wat they could get and for there own gain. I dont mean it to sound nasty but its true. this is 1 good reason why the members area should stay a members only area
    Jesus loves you........ everyone else thinks you're an arsehole.

    I see where you're coming from but that's the very nature of the internet. A lot of people seek information and switch the computer off when they've got it. I don't have a problem with users doing that as we're probably all guilty of this.

    I just want everyone to get along and visit a forum stuffed with tons of information and articles about the taping and drylining trade. We've already had this out and voted, the members area will stay as it is.
