I will agree that the web has made it hard to convey intent sometimes, but tact and decorum can still be used.

WWEPD?

Hey it's fun to be "bustin' balls" on Tiki Central. Isn't that pretty Tiki in spirit ?? If you want "Aloha" move to Hawaii.

Actually I ran into Boris at the Waikiki Womb this last Sat and asked why he was doggin' me lately (banishing me to Bilge even). We were going to duel to the death out on the street, each defending the honor of Tiki-Ti (him) and the Tonga Hut (me). We realized we'd only kill each other and leave Big Tiki Dude as last man standing (and the unchallenged voice of DTBC). This would greatly upset the fragile So Ca Tiki "balance of power" so now I consider Boris a strategic ally (even if he is "unreasonable" )

Seriously, it's best to take into account how "new" the person you're replying to is. I've seen some new members pack up their Tikis and leave (as well as erase all of their old posts) after one dramatic incident. Anyone remember DonnaBeach ?? I hope she wasn't an actual relative.

When in doubt use Mr. Smiley Face. He exists for a reason.

Hey do we have a page that introduces new members to the ways of Tiki Central?
Tips and etiquette etc. lay of the land & how to survive in the TC wilderness?

maybe we can use one to point new members too?
why is everyone looking at me?

So if so many folks agree, I trust next time they will not hesitate to offer constructive suggestions when someone mis-posts, without being overly fearful of "sticking their neck out"?

You know, there's also a certain ratio between posting "real content" and "space-wasting" posts that can can make members look like mis-posters.

I hear you,Sven
I keep up the joking around, I know.....
But the Intro to new members page still might be a good idea, still.

Problem is if it is not up in the first five posts on General Tiki, they won't see it. There is something about the style of content TC is about here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/about.php,

...and the "what to post where" should be self-explanatory (in MOST cases) by the very simple headers of the different forums. Also, most of the times, mis-posts get accepted if they are among the first 10 a newbie ever did, anyway, which shows tolerance. But if none ever get corrected, it shows indifference -which is a sign of devolution of a web forum
