    Quick guide on How to Properly reply to a Post

    Quick guide on How to properly reply to a post

    I am just giving a quick guide on how to properly reply to a thread or post. Sorry for the inconvenience if this has already been posted in another guide or such thing.


    1. [MOST IMPORTANT] Follow the Forum Rules!
    When you reply to a thread be sure to always follow the Forum Rules (Forum Code). If you follow the code, you have a VERY higher chance of not getting a warning.

    2. Proof
    Make sure you have proof that the post has correct information to back up the post. You don't always need the proof in the post, but just if the need ever arise to where someone asks for proof, or you feel it's necessary to post it or edit it into you're post, you know where to get it. You also know for a fact that the post is not wrong.

    3. Plagiarism / Copying
    Don't copy someone's post and claim it as you're work. It's most of the time to all the time against the law in the real world, and can probably get you in trouble here too.

    4. A good amount of content
    Try to make your post too short, or too long of a post. A really good amount is a paragraph or so, although any amount is fine.

    5. Stay on topic
    Try to stay on topic while posting. If you go too far off-topic a moderator could close the thread, or give a reminder/warning to everyone to stay on topic.

    6. Make sense
    Make sure you make sense in a post, so others can understand your point of view correctly. Try reading over the post before fully publishing it.

    7. Staying nice and positive
    Staying nice and/or positive makes a whole better atmosphere around you, for you and possibly others. Cheering someone up is also a good way to be positive, or nice. Just remember not to go off-topic of the thread!


    8. Questions
    I recommend if there is a thread that has a question in it, and it has been answered multiple times, just leave that thread alone and go to another one. There's not too much of a use re-answering a question that's already been answered.

    Thanks everyone! I hope this helped!


    Thanks,
    Michael

    This is a really good guide!
    I definitely learned a thing or two, and I'm sure many newcomers will find is very helpful!
    These are the guides that are thought out and well written, not just slapped together in 5 minutes. Great work!

    Very sage advice. One of the things I've noticed with P101 Central as opposed to W101 Central is that it seems to be more difficult to multiquote posts. I don't really like double posting just to quote several points I would like to make.

    4. A good amount of content
    Try to make your post too short, or too long of a post. A really good amount is a paragraph or so, although any amount is fine.
    Shouldn't it be try not to?
