Yes folks, it's time once again for O'nuts tips for making the most of your posting.
Want to start a new thread? First thing you need is a good subject. Got it!
Next, do a little research to see if said thread idea has already been posted. See the "search" button up top? Search is your friend. If it's been posted, please do not start another thread of similar subject matter. Just add to the already created thread. It helps the reading masses, and keeps our mods a little saner from having to merge. I can't tell you how many times I've sent messages to the mods that "there's 2 threads already about this can we merge them please?". They love me that way
Next up, the thread title. Make it interesting. Catchy. Fun. Without being too wordy, or too obscure. Please no titles that say "Look here" or "Frontierland....." Also nothing like "Disneyland is the best place on earth". OK, thanks for that. We know that, that is why we are here!
Thread body. If you want to ask a question of your fellow MCers, do so, but add some anecdotes, or little stories of your own. Make it personal. But again, not too wordy. Too wordy = I am loosing interest and am likely not to continue reading.
Know when to wrap it up. You can go on and on and on and on about things without ever coming to a close. Close it up! You can always come back and add a post to your thread later.
And finally, if your thread is a serious thread where you really want to get a point across, or ask your fellow MCers their opinions on a subject: spell check. I know I take threads with full sentences and proper punctuation and spelling much more serious than if someone runs on a sentence and doesnt use punkutaion and splels incrorectecly/
And there you have part one of O'nut helpful hints. If you all have anything you'd like to add please, feel free to do so. Thank you for reading and have a pleasant tomorrow.
