Would be nice to still have a designated forum (maybe named "Logos Coffee House") for more non technical fellow-shipping...  

It's the community that makes us keep wanting to come back. Don't lose it...

Joan Korte:

I may have trouble with the search before you ask a question.  Even with searches I get too many hits to read every post.  I cannot keep up with forum topics due to the multiplicity of threads and posts.  I do not have an hour a day to spend on the forums.  I will try.

If you spend a minute or two scanning for relevant threads, that's plenty to satisfy the request to search before posting.

If these forum guidelines truly represent the company's policy, why not place them prominently on the the main page

As David pointed out, there is a link on the main page under Shortcuts in the sidebar.

Could these guidelines be added to the Wiki?

Added them. They are, of course, locked for editing. :)

Even though I've been known to violate the theological issues rule

I too must admit my violations of the theological rule. Keep me accountable Hmm

"3. Please treat each other with the love, courtesy, respect, and kindness that you would if you were sitting in your living room together"

IMHO, this is the one that seems most personal and necessary because it may be the one violated the most.

I see them now.  I did not see them before.  Thanks.

The way I read it, George is still fair game.

 

Not fair game exactly, but with that dreadlocked caveman hair, smells a little gamey.

Hi Joan,

I agree and I hope these rules will also prevent the "coarse jesting" that shows up, when it is not even to be named among us.

PS  What does IMHO mean?Confused

 

Hi Phil,

Is it possible to add a reminder to the list to not use bad words or imply them?

You can check out the thread on 'bad words showing up in word search' last week to see what can happen.  I only clicked on it to see what the error was so I could avoid it.  Instead, I found it was a springboard to use "humor" as an excuse to talk inappropriately.  The thread was not humorous, rather it was offensive.  It has not been the only thread of its kind.  I really would like to not have to see this sort of thing when I am simply trying to learn how to use the software.  I'd appreciate it if you would consider adding it to the rules.

I am glad to hear your response to Joan about searching for previous threads before posting.  I always try to find the answer by searching and will continue to do so, but I was a little intimidated thinking I might ask a question that had already been asked.  Smile

And I, too, will abide by all of the rules to the very best of my ability.

Thank you, Sharon

Sharon, to me "3. Please treat each other with the love, courtesy, respect, and kindness that you would if you were sitting in your living room together" covers it. I'm concerned that the term "bad words" is subjective enough that people might use it as a club. There are, of course, a number of words that clearly are crude, insulting, etc. which I think is covered by courtesy and respect. But then again, I am a minimalist when it comes to rules - I find I get greater compliance that way. MJ

I agree to abide. Just my 2 cents but what about a theological discussion category. I know there other forums for this and I frequent a couple. But there is a kinship we Logos users feel and having this and Christ in common seems like it might be fruitful for these kind of discussions. Of course I could see how this might create some issues but I like to think we would show Christlikeness in these matters. Food for thought.

Phil,

I understand totally about not posting links or promoting current products that would compete with your sales, however I stumbled upon 4 copies of a discontinued publishing partner product that I think people might be interested in and I was thinking about suggest something like this, "If you will do a Bing search for Product X you will find 4 copies available for sale." Would something like this be violating the spirit of these rules?

sounds like the same thing to me.

As an aside, this question reminds me of when I was a youth pastor teaching teens about guarding their heart and purity.  Someone always wanted to know, "but what about, xyz?  is that okay to do with my girlfriend?"
