Some Do’s and Don’ts on Forum posting Tips
Use Your Real Name:
Whenever you register for any forum sites always make a habit to use the real name and avoid using of any fancy name such as “XYZ”. Fancy names sometimes create a sense of spam.
Use Easy and Simple English:
Good in English! That’s great but do remember that not everyone in the forum will be. Make a habit of using Simple English whenever you post or in giving replies on any discussion in forum. Simple the words, wider the audience.
Correct the Grammar:
A simple silly mistake in grammar can change the whole meaning of words and hence lesser chance of getting correct replies/response. So, check the sentence grammar twice at-least.
Add yours Social networking profile link (Facebook, Google+) whenever there are options to add such on the Forum Sites.
Post queries on right Categories:
These mistakes are generally done by new users. To get correct opinion and responses, posting the queries on right categories is must, and moreover there’s no logic in posting “About Mobile Reviews” on “About TV Reviews” category and hoping for correct responses. Just take your time, be calm and do correctly.
Watch your Fingers:
Nobody likes to be get Insult, be it on real or virtual world; Do you?! Whenever you post or replies always try to maintain yours gentleness. If you don’t agree with others opinion or suggestion that’s ok, say it, put up yours view and point but then don’t bombard them with all slang words. Be good with others if you expect good in return.
Avoid Posting unnecessarily:
Post/reply only when there is need for, don’t simply post like, That’s Great, I like it; Such replies doesn’t helps or nor it gives benefit to anyone. Keep in mind that forum is meant only for discussion, it’s not a place for casual chat.
Don’t act like Spammer:
There’s no space for spammer and since forum sites are the first choice for spammer, forum admin and moderator are usually more alert and stricter on such activities. Avoid posting repeated questions, copying others post, posting unrelated queries, using slang words, linking on unrelated content. Spammer are banned permanently.
Limit the link on Signature:
Most forums provide an extra space for signature, where webmasters are allowed put its blog/websites link on it (for SEO benefits) but you should be careful while doing that. In general, at most 3 (three) link is more than enough and if you are thinking on bombarding the signature with 10, 20 number’s link, just hold on! Your account might get banned permanently because of spam works (using forums for only SEO benefits is also a spam work).
So, whenever you look to register on any new forum sites always keep those point on your mind to avoid any unnecessary account banned and to get maximum benefits. This forum posting tips is basically for meant for new users (as I already said) but even-though experience users can also use this as for reference.
