Devilmarkus:
We want to keep a huge CPC forum alive here.
So it's also important to follow some simple rules.
Some I'll post here. Perhaps you also have suggestions for more.
So we could discuss this here and post the complete Forum-rules.

My points: (Suggestions, but I think you all will agree with me here)

- If there is trouble between 2 or more users, they should resolve their problems via PM or e-mail, because others are not interested in their squabble.

- When you post consider that other people may be using a translation service to understand what you write.So, some things may translate bad, especially slang and some kinds of humour, and this could give the reader the wrong idea.

- Also remember that humour may not translate well to other cultures, even if the translation is good.


Cheers,
The "Underlord" ;)

Gryzor:
The two last points are very, um, to the point.

However, the first is a problem (always in public forms of communication) because, if for instance you curse at someone, or insult them in some way, it doesn't make much sense for the insulted party to respond in PM: they'll want to do so in public, where the insult was served.

But that's why the mods are there, to try and calm things down and put an end to insults and whatnot.

I tried to translate it based on Markus's description of the original German post.

Point 1, is more of a continued squabble over many weeks or months or so.
That is how I understand this.

EDIT: Also, it was translated into English too, because Markus's "forum etiquette" post should not single out one particular country or language.

EDIT2: What we all want is a forum where we can go, read about cpc stuff, post about cpc stuff, encourage new people to join in and if they want, contribute their games, demos, utils etc, and help to make forthcomming years, as equally good in terms of releases as this year.

Yes but it's sad that other users already ask me via PM why here are so many postings edited / deleted.
The rules simply should avoid this.
When a user is not the same opinion with another's, he should not be rude in his reply but calm and objective.
When a negative reply is written objectively and without rude comments, there's no reason to edit/delete it.

AMSDOS:
My understanding of that is suggesting that Humor should be cut completely.  ??? 
 
I like the idea that different languages are being applied, since the community incorporates an interest with the Amstrad, makes sense to provide for everyone!  :)
