  • O'nuts 2007 guide to a better MiceChat post

    Yes folks, it's time once again for O'nuts tips for making the most of your posting.

    Want to start a new thread? First thing you need is a good subject. Got it!

    Next, do a little research to see if said thread idea has already been posted. See the "search" button up top? Search is your friend. If it's been posted, please do not start another thread of similar subject matter. Just add to the already created thread. It helps the reading masses, and keeps our mods a little saner from having to merge. I can't tell you how many times I've sent messages to the mods that "there's 2 threads already about this can we merge them please?". They love me that way

    Next up, the thread title. Make it interesting. Catchy. Fun. Without being too wordy, or too obscure. Please no titles that say "Look here" or "Frontierland....." Also nothing like "Disneyland is the best place on earth". OK, thanks for that. We know that, that is why we are here!

    Thread body. If you want to ask a question of your fellow MCers, do so, but add some anecdotes, or little stories of your own. Make it personal. But again, not too wordy. Too wordy = I am loosing interest and am likely not to continue reading.

    Know when to wrap it up. You can go on and on and on and on about things without ever coming to a close. Close it up! You can always come back and add a post to your thread later.

    And finally, if your thread is a serious thread where you really want to get a point across, or ask your fellow MCers their opinions on a subject: spell check. I know I take threads with full sentences and proper punctuation and spelling much more serious than if someone runs on a sentence and doesnt use punkutaion and splels incrorectecly/

    And there you have part one of O'nut helpful hints. If you all have anything you'd like to add please, feel free to do so. Thank you for reading and have a pleasant tomorrow.

                  Man, this makes me want to post a post that goes totally against your list! :evil:
                  Good morning, son
                  In twenty years from now
                  Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                  And I can tell you 'bout today
                  And how I picked you up and everything changed
                  It was pain
                  Sunny days and rain
                  I knew you'd feel the same things...

                      O-nut...loved the original...but somehow I like the sequel better! Which is odd because it is exactly the same thing.

                      I know that "Search" is my friend, but a couple of times I've started a duplicate thread even after sifting through four or five pages that the search has given me, because the title of the other thread might be misleading in some way.

                      So if at all possible, make sure the thread title reveals the subject matter of the thread as precisely as possible.

                      About long posts (and I've been known to have them occasionally) remember also that the "paragraph" is your friend.

                      I've seen thread opening posts that fill my computer screen, with one long run-on sentence.

                      Like O-nut, I'm far less likely to try to tackle those.

                      I think I've "said" enough now.

                      God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                            I'm just amazed that every topic on DL hasn't already been covered.

                              Part 2 - Posting into threads someone else started.

                              Pick threads that are interesting to you, or that are in support of someone who might need it (but not to someone that is incessantly needy). Don’t go posting a comment into every single thread you see. Seriously, even -I- don’t have THAT much to comment on. Or, you need to go outside. Get some sun.



                              Please don’t bother with inane threads, you’re just feeding the original posters attempt for attention. No posts means the O.P. will go “well I guess nobody cares, I’ll move on too”. Ignore, it does a message board good!

                              So what have we learned in todays lesson? Short, clear, concise and to the point posts. And go outside!! Vitamin D is good for you
