I kinda guessed that you had been involved with forums for awhile—thanks for sharing your lineage back to the 1990s, @ChrisJenkins .
May I ask a question on the things not to do? Like excessive formatting and such?
Most of the people in this panel have previously been active on forums or blog communities. So they’re less likely to make the newbie mistakes with conversations that can cause annoyance and/or getting your content actively ignored.
Would you mind sharing a tip or three—of mistakes to avoid—for folks who are new to participating in forum conversations?
