Re: Newbie here :) Just got my S4!
There is a statement in the etiquette section that says:
Search Before Posting - Often time’s questions and/or topics have already been discussed in an existing thread. Before posting a new thread, please try the search feature to research your question.
Which is immediately followed by:
Telling someone to "Search" - Do not reply to a question by telling someone to do a search. Kindly suggest a search link, answer their question, or feel free not to respond.
Most importantly, at the top of that page we find this:
(Be Polite, Understanding, Patient, Professional, Attentive and Helpful)
· Be polite. We ask that you keep your language clean and polite.
· Be understanding and patient. You may be a power user or developer, but the person you’re talking to on the other end may be a complete newbie. Be patient, and provide all details possible if you’re posting about a problem (descriptive thread title always helps).
· Be a pro. Don’t get into arguments over dumb things. If someone responds in a poor or rude fashion, ignore it. If you notice a pattern of rude or poor behavior from a particular member, report them to our moderators. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. In a nutshell, ‘think before you post’.
· Be attentive and helpful. Answer questions in a timely manner when you can, and provide thoughts and suggestions that might lead to the solution of a members’ problem.
Let’s please ensure that we’re being polite to each other and that our comments are productive, civil and meaningful.
