Ok, normally, I wouldn't say a thing, but it seems to me your going out of thread.
To contribute a little to majicmeow suggestions, I would like to inform that post etiquette, up to this moment, depends entirely on the criterion of the moderating team. Allow me to add that we have a very open criteria (hi, Carlos!
), we try hard NOT to become "soup nazis".The soup nazi
Besides that, the only explicitely stated rules
are (more or less): post in the appropriate forum, do not spam and do not use slow links.
We do have a warning system in place
: the fact that is not known by the majority is a good sign. We try not to make a fuss out of it; in the few cases it has been used, all communications are private. We normally try to solve things by convincing people: it works very well.
Having entertaining forumers and in-depth, interesting threads is a thing that cannot be moderated
Moreover, reported posts are few: this gives me an idea of how civilized is people here. I frequent some other forums and, compared with them, I think this site is heaven on Earth. Anyway, if you think that a post is frivolous, help us by reporting it. We'd try our best.
I don't know what God wishes, but, as you've heard me say so many times: "Give me numbers instead of opinions". The numbers of the forum are solid. F1Technical has had more visitors year after year and the site has the same level of traffic as the ones created by seasoned professionals. So, some numbers about this winter pause, for your comments:
I'm not a believer, but, after the growth of this site during this winter, I would like to make mine the words of the italian poet Antonio Porchia:
"My God, I have almost never believed in you, but I've always loved you".
If God needs my approval (I don't think so), He has it: this world is good.
