Netiquette Do’s:

Netiquette Do’s Stay on topic. While discussion is encouraged, rambling conversations aren’t conducive to a quality experience. Use appropriate subject lines in your replies. As a conversation evolves, it’s helpful to change the subject line of a threaded message to reflect the changing topic. For example, if the subject line reads “Participation requirements” and the conversation evolves into a discussion on attendance, changing the subject line to “Attendance” in your reply would help others interested in the topic to join the conversation . Carefully choose the format for your messages. Long paragraphs are difficult for other people to follow on-screen. In general, try to limit each paragraph to five to seven lines and avoid using font styles, colors and sizes that are difficult to read.

Netiquette Don’ts:

Netiquette Don’ts Avoid ”I agree” and ”Me, too!” messages. Spending time reading messages without substance can be frustrating for all parties. Avoid posting messages using all caps. (IT’S LIKE SHOUTING!) It’s OK to use all caps occasionally to emphasize a point, but you should only capitalize the individual words you want to highlight, not the entire sentence or paragraph . Avoid writing errors, even when “talking” with one another. Even though messages posted in the Main newsgroup are conversational and often informal; please avoid posting messages with grammatical, spelling and typographical errors . Avoid responding when emotions are running high. If you’re angry about something someone has posted, don’t reply to their message until you’ve had a chance to calm down. Remember, your posted messages can be seen by everyone, even potential employers . Avoid posting messages using all caps. (IT’S LIKE SHOUTING!) It’s OK to use all caps occasionally to emphasize a point, but you should only capitalize the individual words you want to highlight, not the entire sentence or paragraph.
