Be friendly and polite to your fellow OCN members !

post #1 of 106
Thread Starter 
This is more of a reminder more than anything for the membership of Overclock.net.

Overclock.net is a forum with professionalism in mind and it is best we do everything we can to keep it that way. Overclock.net in its professional manor allows for our community to really thrive in a positive way and allows us to provide help to our fellow members and allows Overclock.net to be a very friendly and enjoyable environment to be in.

However for Overclock.net to stay a professional and a friendly environment, it is up to YOU the members of this forum to keep it that way. Forum staff can only do so much.

When I say a friendly and professional environment I mean the following.

1. Post positively and constructively
2. Reply in a friendly tone (There’s no need for underhand sarcasm)
3. Be sure to check your spelling/Grammar and punctuation before posting.
4. Do your best to stay on topic ( Outside of the Off Topic section )

As the TOS says also :

Quote:
You positively contribute to the forum and its membership
Quote:
You aid in maintaining a friendly and professional atmosphere
Quote:
You respect the site, its management and its members
http://www.overclock.net/view.php?pg=rulestos

As of recent I have unfortunately seen members being rude and using underhand sarcasm toward other members on this forum. The best thing I can say is this. If you have nothing constructive or nice to say then it’s actually best to keep your thoughts/opinions to yourself. This is not only to keep the forum clean from silly posts but it is also good for you as a member if you wish to reside on the forums and use our facilities. Be friendly to your fellow OCN members.

Once again the TOS does agree

Quote:
You do not troll or attempt to stir up trouble within the community

We are a very large community and we are ALL different in many different ways. Dont be scared of difference and act on it in a negative way. Welcome difference and be positive about it.

Remember theres no need to respond to a bad post and inflame the situation. Just hit the ''Report post'' button and the forum staff will deal with it in the best possible way. This will avoid any un-needed and unfriendly posts. We just dont need them here. Be constructive...not destructive.

To keep Overclock.net clean please make sure that when you post that you keep it clean, concise and to the point along with keeping up good grammar/spelling/punctuation. It’s also not just about keeping OCN a nice looking environment it also about making it easy for other members to read your posts, thus allowing other members to help you more quickly and efficiently.

Be friendly
Be positive
Be constructive
= OCN, A great community.

Let’s keep this great forum an excellent environment to be in guys

The above can also apply to the OCN gameservers, OCN Chat and Ventrillo, have fun and keep it friendly.

Thanks,

ENTERPRISE.

This site is so much better than every other because of the quality of its members. I'd hate to see it go down hill, then where would I go for computer help?

Thanks OCN!

Good reminder! Although you broke rule three in this post by starting rule 3 without a capital and misspelling manor. You spelt it like the type of house, should be manner.

Have seen to some posts ending up in flame-wars. Good thing that someone stands up and tells it like it is. Or at least how it should be.
