Forum etiquette

Esteemed Contributor
Esteemed Contributor
As a moderator and administrator of other technical forums dedicated to development, I am fighting with members hijacking threads, cross-posting and using non-descriptive subjects on a daily basis.

All members must realize that thread hijacking, cross-posting and using non-descriptive subjects will result in having to ask the same question over and over again, since the search feature of the forum will not be able to collect the right information.

I encourage all members to not use this forum in the way a chat is used, but as if they were writing a presentation or brochure.


Keep the topics on the boards they belong to
Don't post topics on boards that seem to be very active if they don't belong there
Don't add an unrelated request to a different thread just because it is active
Don't cross-post, this will just make is much harder to find the information for you and for future members
Use descriptive subjects, so one can find the solution to his problem by searching only the subjects too
If you are upset be polite, even the SIEMENS employees are volunteers on this forum
Always remember that you will be treated the same way as you treat others


This forum can be a helpful and informative place, but you will have to add your part too.
