Professional Forum Etiquette <---Please Read
  1 / 2    
Since this seems to have been thrown out the window lately on this forum; I would like to re-introduce this concept. Most new and younger members have never heard of such a concept and in my personal opinion is hurting the over-all reputation of this "Official" forum. Ok so here we go ;) [quote] [color=blue]-1.

Since this seems to have been thrown out the window lately on this forum; I would like to re-introduce this concept. Most new and younger members have never heard of such a concept and in my personal opinion is hurting the over-all reputation of this "Official" forum.

Ok so here we go ;)


-1. Read the forum rules. Even if you're excited to be a member of a new forum and can't wait to join in, take the time to find the group policy page and read it thoroughly. Some forums are fussier than others about Internet etiquette.

-2. Lurk a little before you dive right in. Read a number of posts, or check out the group's archives. Get a feel for the tone of the forum so you can participate accordingly.

-3. Remember your face doesn't show. Words alone can convey sentiment, but without benefit of inflection or facial expression, they can be misconstrued. Use descriptive wording, emoticons or .gifs to ensure your meaning is clear. By the same token, don't jump to conclusions about another person's intent in posting an unclear comment. When in doubt, ask for clarification.

-4. Type in lowercase or standard case not in all caps. By the rules of netiquette, all caps equates to shouting. If you type with all caps, you will annoy and possibly offend other forum members.

-5. Say online exactly what you would say in person. In other words, if you wouldn't say it to the person's face in front of your Grandmother, you shouldn't type it into a forum.

-6. Be respectful. Internet etiquette is similar to standard etiquette in this area. Appreciate that your opinion is one of many. You can disagree with another person without being disrespectful or rude online.

-7. Ignore Trolls. "Netiquette" guidelines are very specific where they're concerned. If you engage in conversation, you'll raise your blood pressure and empower the Troll. You can't win a flame war, and you can't sway a Troll's opinion. Often, they don't even care about the subject; they live for the conflict and nothing more. Trolls are common and not worthy of your time. Ignore their posts-no matter how inflammatory-and eventually they'll get bored and move on. This includes "Spammer's" or any other form of advertisement.

-8. "Complete" system specs should ALWAYS be accompanied with any driver, hardware, or performance question. Do not post DXDiag reports as they contain a TON of useless information and generally shows a poster's "laziness". Posting a DxDiag in place of a System Spec List tends to ward off potential members from helping you.

Please supply the following system details/information:
(Complete System Specs)

-CPU make and model# (clock speed/voltage, type of cooler, and "Core" temperature @ idle and load)
*If using an "Intel" CPU please include a link to your XTU profile. *This information is used to verify your motherboard's BIOS values
-Motherboard make & model# (include Bios version if graphics card is not recognized or you are having stability issues)
-RAM (amount, clock speed, model#/link of kit, configuration)
-Graphics card(s) make and model# (clock speed, voltage if modified, Driver version and GPU temp both @ idle and load)
-Power supply make,model#, "AND" age (note if using 110V or 220V A/C input)
-HDD/SSD configuration (ie: Raid setup/ back up/ OS drive/ect..)
-Case/Chassis make,model# (fan make, model#, and configuration if having thermal issues)
-Operating System (If using Windows note Framework, service pack, and build version)
-Monitor make, model#, and resolution (If model# is unknown list resolution and refresh rate)
-Speccy Report *This will allow us to view your running background applications and installed software. (Link to Speccy *Free*)

*If the unit is a "laptop" or "All-in-one" system you must note the make and model# of the unit. Be sure you are ALWAYS using the OEM/manufacturer's Driver updates/OS for the unit.

*If "Crashing":
-Note the nature of the "crash" in detail, as there are several definitions for the word "crash".
-Make sure there are NO available Windows Updates
-Your motherboard BIOS is up to date (most recent)
-There are NO available driver updates via the OEM website for your NIC, Sound, CPU, SSH/HDD, or motherboard chip-set.


*If "performance" related issue:
-Note the "exact" point in which the performance reduction occurred (ie: After Windows update, After Bios update, After Driver update, After thermal system shutdown, After Hardware change/upgrade ect...)

*If "Artifacting":
-Post pics/links to pics of the artifacts occurring

*For diagnostic purposes please disable the following:
-Any/all Antivirus/ Anti-malware software
-Any/all OSD monitoring software
-ALL over/under clocks outside of factory spec


-9.No advertising please. Do not use this site as a "re-director" or gateway to another site for the purpose of collecting click income or site advertising in any way. Although there are times when a link to another site is necessary for helping or answering a question, NVIDIA and/or Moderation staff reserves the right to determine what is and is not advertising.This is the only section where items may be listed for sale. (Forum "For Sale/Trade" page no longer available)
Retail advertisement is forbidden.

-10."Trolling" is basically defined as any post/thread which is designed for no other purpose but to create conflict. Posts like these should be avoided. You wouldn't do this in person so why do it here? (See #5 and #7)

-11. Andrew's Addition: If you see something that violates any of these guidelines, please report it!


If you guys can think of anything else you'd like to add/mention please post it here.

Since we are currently lacking any obvious forum guidelines, this is a great idea and has been stickied. Appreciate your comments about some of the posts, so please make sure you use the report button or PM someone from the moderator team know about any obvious flaming, trolling or abuse. Same goes for any spam that slips through.

Always nice to remind people of these things. It's easy to forget there are real people (and the occasional dog) on the other side of the screen. My addition: if you see something that violates any of these guidelines, please report it!

These rules could mean anything. How am i supposed to follow them. I might as well lurk forever and say nothing. Please re-write these rules because they cannot be followed. For instance"Say online exactly what you would say in person." I would tell someone to "go die" in person if they annoyed the crap out of me so then that would okay to say? I'm actually nicer online then i am in person simply because i have more time to think things out and respond.

Jake as you and I both know the biggest issue would be failure to read. Examples of this can clearly be seen all over the forum. So as good as a list of rules is, it kind of misses the group of people you are trying to help. We have seen a massive evolution from the SLI and NV forums to the current Geforce forums. And currently what you see is a structure with large amounts of traffic and not enough staff to adequately handle that load. And the fact that so many people are seen acting rudely to others and the loads of spam that I have seen, not to mention all the threads that are located in the wrong areas are proof of just that. If they are going to run the forums with a skeleton staff and rely upon people using the report feature correctly, then I don't see much that's going to change.

Yup, reporting only gets so far... You still need to sort through all the reports. I still try to report things I see as spam or what have you but I fear it's just creating more workload and drawing attention from the real issues...

The comment that took attention away from the OP, as seen all to often through out the forums. I cant tell you how many times I tried to read through a thread only to say screw it because with 3 or 4 side conversations you couldnt make heads or tails of the original issue. I have seen people with legit issues come on here and be belittled and treated poorly. The e-p33n on here has just gotten ungodly. I know for a fact at one time the amount of hardware I was running was just insane. But never did it make me feel superior to the gamer running a 9800 GTX. If you are gaming on the PC, you are top notch in my book. There are a few of us who have been in this for quite awhile and have worked hard to pass our knowledge on so people dont have to learn like we did. Whats funny is all this is soooooo simple compared to pre socket 1366 days. But I swear the plug and play generation is so whiny its not funny, not to mention the clear lack of morals on the interwebs.
-{RaptoR}- said:Yup, reporting only gets so far... You still need to sort through all the reports.

I still try to report things I see as spam or what have you but I fear it's just creating more workload and drawing attention from the real issues...


Whats funny Raptor is there is a perfect example in this thread of poor forum etiquette. The comment that took attention away from the OP, as seen all to often through out the forums. I cant tell you how many times I tried to read through a thread only to say screw it because with 3 or 4 side conversations you couldnt make heads or tails of the original issue.

I have seen people with legit issues come on here and be belittled and treated poorly. The e-p33n on here has just gotten ungodly. I know for a fact at one time the amount of hardware I was running was just insane. But never did it make me feel superior to the gamer running a 9800 GTX. If you are gaming on the PC, you are top notch in my book.

Yeah, I think some people see mods / admins and just think they need to spam their issue in front of them for attention. I think it may as well be added that you should also pay attention to the age of posts before hitting reply. Don't dig up dead threads from 8 years ago for example... (why aren't these dead threads just auto-locked anyways?)

I agree Raptor, a simple feature to lock inactive posts after a certain time would be most helpful in a structure such as this. Also to note the state of the " buy, sell or trade " is deplorable these days. I wouldnt try and sell anything in that mess these days.

Please post a link to the rules and how to report things in the original thread. I have no way to know where the rules are now and the "report" function always says that it has been "disabled". Cheers
