  • Communication

    Online communication is very different from face to face contact. What you say online can often be interpreted as saying something completely different than your intention.
    Please reread what you write and see if it can be taken the wrong way before you post it.
    What you write is a reflection of your self or your business and so make sure it's presentable.

      LOL, smilies etc can go a long way to make sure people know that what you say is in jest. I agree though that what we say online can so easily be misinterpreted. I have quite a sarcastic sense of humour, online it would come out as being rude and offensive so (believe it or not) I often bite my tongue and say nowt. Whilst I am all for sharing and giving constructive criticism I do feel that we need to do it in a way that can be seen as 'helpful' and not just nit picking.

          Good to see this post. I have been away from the forum for some time and have been taken aback a little by some of the comments I have seen in a couple of threads.

            Great thread! I have also found that is it often the mood of the person reading the post that affects what they 'read'. Some people are ready to jump to conclusions without reading what has actually been written.

                    I agree with what this thread is all about but have also found that you spend time giving advice as a lot of us being in the business for so long do, only for our advice to be squashed or ignored because it is not what they want to hear. This is very annoying when we have taken the time to write a reply, given our knowledge free of charge for it to be thrown back in our faces. My feeling is then why did you ask if you already knew the answer you wanted to hear.

                    So think it is not just those that offer the help it is also those requesting the help. Perhaps if they do not agree they should also keep quiet and just read the comments adding a few more questions if needed. Respect is a two way street a bit like the kids now a days who want respect failing to realise that respect has to be earned and you have to show respect to your elders and those with the knowledge to gain respect back.

                    If you started a new job in a company you cannot go in a say how you would run it until you know what you are doing and have been trained.

                    I think this forum is a fantastic place for information for both newbies and experienced alike but have found so much lately that the newbies ask but often don't want the advice given, that is fine but please respect the advice given ignore but do not critiscise. If something has been misunderstood explain what you really meant.

                        I am not native English speaker, so, might be my sentences sound awkward. My point is, if you find someone is rude, check if he/she comes from different environment or different culture.

                          We are aware that some of our members do not have English as their first language and try very hard to make allowances for this sort of thing.
