Message Board Etiquette

Postby Deb Porter » Sun Jun 04, 2006 8:22 am

We all like to have fun, and it's always a healthy sign when message board members are enjoying themselves and the company of the other members. However, with all message boards, there is a need for balance. There is a place for inane nonsense and fun, and there is a place where that sort of thing is, well, out of place.

So basically, the Water Cooler is where you can go and just have fun. Silly threads are semi-expected, as are games and general chat about our lives outside FaithWriters (yes ... we do all have them). :wink: In other words, the Water Cooler is for just about everything--including nonsense.

That's not to say that you can't have fun in the other forums as well--PROVIDED the originator of the thread started it as such. The same is true for the Water Cooler. Unfortunately, what often happens on message boards (not just these ones) is that an original message gets quite lost in pages and pages of unrelated, just-for-fun, type responses. This can be very annoying for those who are trying to follow the original thread--particularly if the pages of the thread go on, and on, and on, without any connection.

So please, feel free to start fun threads, particularly in the Water Cooler. But if someone has started a thread with a specific point or purpose, please don't hijack it. This way, we make sure that the message boards are always a blessing to everyone.

Love, Deb
