RESPECT on the forums

Post by Gigs on Wed Feb 20, 2013 6:34 pm

Respect is really important, even on the internet. Hopefully this guide shall help

Don't use Sarcasm
It's hard to know if you are being sarcastic or not over the internet. People might take it the wrong way if you do use it.


No offensive language
Don't use any offensive language on this site to ANYONE. Don't say people are "retards" or anything that would hurt their feelings (Making fun of Race and Point of view is so not okay)


Listen to people
Listen to what people have to say. Even if they say your wrong (Mods) they are just trying to help make this site friendly and they are not trying to offend you in any way


Typing
How you type will affect how most members will see you. If you type like "AHHHHH lol my monkey did an OMG BAAACCCCKKKKK FLIIIIPPPP OVER MY HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" nobody will treat you seriously.


Be Nice
This should be obvious. Be nice to every single person on this site.


I hope this will help to make a friendlier site for everyone!

This is the WBO's version
Respect is important, even here when posting. When you respect people, people respect you, and they listen to you more.
This is a little guide on how to respect people, and gain respect.

How to respect others:
1) Don't use too much sarcasm:
Sarcasm is hard to detect over the internet, and some people might take it the wrong way. In order to prevent that from happening, don't use it very often. And when you use it, make sure it's obvious.
2) Don't use offensive language against others:
This includes calling people "retard", "gay" or anything else that can offend someone's race, views, ect. It's even in the rules not to say that, so that's another reason not to.
3) Give people correct information:
Not only is this the right thing to do, but it also raises your credibility. People will believe you more often, and respect you too.
4) Listen to others:
Listen to what others have to say, especially Committee Members, and Advance Members. Most of the time when asking a question, someone will respond with a good answer, so there's no real reason to not listen to it. Also make sure to listen to the Committee Members, as it's their job to keep everyone on topic, and make the WBO a friendly place.
5) Be overall nice:
This is obvious, and goes with everything above, but if you're nice, people will respect you more. Again, this is obvious, but even the most obvious things get overlooked sometimes.
6) Typing matters!:
How you type affects how people view you. People will think of you more highly if you type like a person, and not like a monkey.
7)Don't ask obvious questions, or ones with easily found answers:
Looking around and becoming more independent is always a good way to show initiative, and will make others respect you more. A good way to do this would be through the search bar. However, it's still okay to rely on others when you can't find an answer!


If you follow the steps I listed above, not only will you make the WBO a better place for everyone, but people will respect you too. It's a win win situation!


If anyone has any ideas as to what I can add, feel free to post them.
