Avoid posting using all caps. IT LOOKS LIKE AND WILL BE INTERPRETED AS YOU ARE SHOUTING! Also, post using proper English spelling, grammar, and punctuation. It makes posts a lot easier to comprehend, and it represents you to the world. English shortcuts (neways, 2 instead of too, etc.) and slang in every other word may work for instant messaging, but it has no place at ControlBooth.com.
Try not to post comments that don't add anything to the discussion. When you're just cruising through a thread in a leisurely manner, it's not too annoying to read many "I agree" posts. However, if you're actually trying to find information, it's a nuisance. Therefore, save those curt responses for the "General Discussion " forum.
Here at ControlBooth.com, we have an edit feature. You can edit your posts at anytime. Do not post another reply within this period just to say you messed something up or that you wanted to add something. We call this no-no "double-posting." Utilize the edit feature instead. Also, do not reply to your own posts. If you have two or more back-to-back posts in a thread that you posted within a six-hour period, expect someone to shake their finger at you.
Use descriptive and specific subject lines. This helps others decide whether your particular words of wisdom relate to a topic about which they care. If you're just TOO busy to use a descriptive subject, then we're just TOO busy to read or respond to your thread.
