Ever wondered what's the best
way to use the internet and send/check email when travelling? How will
you get your mail when you're moving around the country on your next
Article in our Communications
Topic discuss the most effective methods to stay in touch with the
modern world whilst you're off on your big adventure.
This article is not written
for the IT expert, its written in simple language to give you a good
understanding of the various options and how they differ.
The ExplorOz Forum upholds a
fairly standard netiquette. We take this opportunity to explain the most
obvious tips to avoid upsetting others, creating havoc and avoiding post
no self promoting:
got a product you're developing? run a business? Blatant self-promotion
on the ExplorOz Forum is perceived as disrespectful. The Forum is only a part of the total service offered by ExplorOz. We have every
right to delete self-promotion where it doesn't belong.
no trolling: Trolling
is often a term used to identify individuals who solely communicate with
others in an attempt to stir up a riot. You can help to prevent the
efforts of Trolls by simply ignoring them. There is much truth to the
saying "If you don't feed a troll, it will die".
no flaming: flaming
is used to describe heated arguments that develop when people react
emotionally to certain comments/issues. Name calling and rude comments
tend to be the most common initiators of a flame war. Lifestyle and
religion are typical issues that tend to result in flame wars and is
just one reason why we request no "off topic" discussions.
Pointless flaming only creates a hostile environment for everyone.
How do we moderate?
ExplorOz is internally
moderated, which means that we can be consistent. Obviously there is
always a grey area, and sometimes a post will be allowed to continue for
a while until it gets out of hand. If you do happen to overstep the
mark, you'll receive a short generic email advising your post was
inappropriate and deleted. This will be issued without warning or reason
and is not an indication that you are "on watch" for being a
trouble-maker. If it happens a first time, learn from your mistake and
move on. If it happens to you frequently, you will need to re-think what
it is you are doing else you are likely to be sent a personalised
warning that you could be "banned" from the site.
A final word:
Take the time to familiarise
in conjunction with the guidelines for posting listed above the box
where you enter each new post you compose. If you are a frequent Forum
user, then your assistance is much appreciated in the alerting of
problem posts using the Feedback Form - this will speed up the moderation process.
Don't leave it to someone else to do, and don't become a part of the
problem by complaining publicly if its not resolved promptly.
Being able to communicate
with others over the Internet is one of the main attractions of this
medium. We hope that this notice assists you to communicate your
thoughts properly and to conduct yourself appropriately. Lets work
together to keep the Forum a "happy place".
