    Low Quality Posts

    Every post you make NetBuilders is read by hundreds of people; make them worth reading.

    Posts which don't add value to the conversation will be cheerfully removed from the forums. These posts include:
    • Posts that are content-free.
    • Posts that replicate comments already added to the thread.
    • Posts without sufficient attention to grammar, case, and punctuation.
    • Posts which can be replaced simply by clicking the "Thanks" button.
    • Posts which are off-topic.

    This is not personal, it's just necessary housecleaning in order to keep the forums here useful for the readers.

    Our goal is to create the best webmaster community on the Internet.

    To be the best, we don't have to be the biggest. If we are the best, we will probably eventually become the biggest as a natural result.

    What we do have to do in order to be the best is to focus relentlessly on quality. This is a very important task where I'm asking for help from every single forum member.

    Please don't feel offended if posts which don't add value silently disappear. We don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. We're not issuing infractions or banning people. Sticky threads are cleaned up pretty rigorously. Normal threads are cleaned as necessary. Threads in the General Chat forums are pretty much ignored.

    We want to be careful of your feelings, but we also want to be careful to serve every other community member who takes the time to read those threads. Please help us make this a better community experience for everyone.

    I've just deleted about fifty posts which were either copied from other forums or which were written in English so terrible as to be incomprehensible.

    Many of our forum members (and moderators!) do not write in English as their first language, and yet they take the time and effort to use proper grammar when they do communicate in English.

    If you cannot take the time to write messages that can be read, please don't post.

    Non-native members can better write a smaller post but in correct and comprehensible English.. than writing long, silly-sounding post in funny English.

    That would bring up the point of "what if a non-native English speaker doesn't know if he or she isn't making sense"? With the hesitancy to not come across as "that other forum" many likely do not say anything to a transgressor for fear of insulting them or seeming like the "Internet Police".

    Thanks for the cleanup Will.
    Cheers,
    James

    We don't want to spam this topic by all commenting: We agree, Will.

    That's the major reason this thanks button is there too, it's a sort of agreeing button IMO

    Hi,

    I live in the USA born and raised here. But still don't read, write, and spell worth a hoot.

    So where does that leave me. LOL
