Thread: Handling new MyGaming forum members

  1. #1

    Default Handling new MyGaming forum members

    This post is addressed to the long-standing members of MyGaming.

    While there are of course the general MyGaming forum rules governing behaviour, please note that you are essentially the leaders of the forum and its culture, and new users will look up to you guys as long-standing members.

    Your behaviour and actions set the precedent and tone of the forum, and so you shape the environment.

    To this end, I highly advise that long-standing members treat the newcomers with common courtesy and assist them to integrate easily.

    Negative posts that attack new members who make a mistake are not constructive and harm the MyGaming forum in the long run, as doing so chases away these members. Remember, everyone here started from a zero post count at some point.

    If you do not feel like spending your time training a newcomer, you can at least point them toward this guide which I posted: Guide for new MyGaming forum members

    New members can also be directed to PM a mod or admin if they need help with something.

    Thanks!

    TL;DR - be nice to the noobs.

    On a serious note, please T H I N K before you post, I see a lot of people just posting for the sake of a post count or they feel that their opinion of which they share with the other 9000 posts on the thread needs to be heard, also please do not derail a thread. This has happened a lot more lately.

    I can imagine many new members are a lot younger than some of the longer running members, so guy's and gal's please try to be nice to each other.

    James, you added this video to the "MyGaming Forum for Dummies" thread I wrote last year, so thought I'd return the favour

    Everyone has a right to post. If people are consistently posting rubbish, then alert me and I will have a word. If they are posting a lot of constructive, or contributive comments, then they are well within reason to do so.

    Don't be silly. What will we feed Quinton? You know how he gets when he's even slightly hungry... We don't want a repeat of the office fire of 2011.
