    Do you Read the "Please Read Before you Post" Thread in Forums?

    Was just wondeering if people really read these threads that mods take the time to write to help us with our posts.

    Thanks for your participation,

    WSFuser,

    Good point, I have noticed too that a lot of the Threads "read e before posting" are not that visible, maybe there could be something done to bring our attention to them first.

    Thanks,

    snowbound,

    What a shame that you have noticed that on these forums, maybe it would help if the mods made them so they were more visible, or maybe before we could post our first post, it had to come up or something. I have noticed that a lot of people as questions or don't include information that was ask for in the "Please Read Before Posting", threads. I too am guilty sometimes, because I don't see them until I have made the mistake of posting first.

    Thanks,
    HelpFromFrance

    Maybe there should be another poll titled: WSF Members' courtesy standards.
    ;)
    OR How courteous are you?

    nadirah,

    That is a good idea, but I think the voting may not be objective. I am not sure how many people would vote "I am not courteous". ;)

    Why don't you do that poll and figure a way to do the vote. I saw 1 poll that showed the names of those that voted, maybe we would all be more honest if we saw who voted what. ;)

    Have a good day & thanks,
    HelpFromFrance

    Just in case I forgot something I voted: most of the times.
    But I am pretty sure I read them all, though didn't in one session.

    I read a TOS once! Not sure, if I actually finished though--there was no plot and no climax.

    I must say though that TOS is a much better read than EULA. :thumb: EULA is apparently written by legal experts who need to go back and retake Elementary English. Well, either that or it's just made up crud. :D
