Thumbs down Getting Off Topic

One simple point: Don't get off topic.


If you went to a thread asking for help, and you see somebody you know, don't post: Hey (insert name here.)! How are you? Did you get that new Webkinz? Awesome!

Somebody was asking for help, not to ask you to talk with your friends.

You could say, "Hey! How are you?" to the person, (usually the threadmaker,) when you post, but also be sure to stay on topic.




There are 3 places to talk to your friends:
  1. DCT(Daily Chat Thread.) in the open mike. There, you could talk about whatever you want! (As long as its appropriate.)
  2. On their profile. You could talk to your friends by saying, "Hey!" on their profile.
  3. PM. (Private Message.) If you want to say something to a friend, and not around for other people to see, you could say it here.
Enjoy different spots to say "Hey! How are you? What are you up to?"

Any comments appreciated.

Nice post. But if they saying 'Hey how are you?' to their friend who needs help. Then they give information about the topic, i find it ok. But not even mentioning the topic is a no-no.

xD

Nice thread. (:

Thanks! Yes, I had that point in there. Just post a hello, then post your answer to the thread.

Default Re: Getting Off Topic

I most definitely agree. I find that a lot of people are quite good at keeping on track and being helpful, especially when it is the somebody help topic, but it is a big pet peeve when people ask for help and the only responses they get are "i don't know" - if you were wondering the same thing, then by all means mention that, but just responding to say you have no idea is not so helpful. It's disappointing when it is your topic and you see responses, but then they don't do anything to help you lol

Rep! This would be going off topic too: "How do I take a screen shot? Oh yeah,i forgot to ask you! Have you seen the new rainbow waffles movie?"
