What are the general etiquette rules in being part of this community

  1. Respect fellow members.Remember they are sharing their knowledge for free and they don't owe you anything.
  2. Interact normally as you would in real world. Just because you are on the internet doesn't mean you have to change.
  3. Don't start posting topics immediately, read through the older topics to know the kind of discussions.
  4. Always search to see whether someone else has started similar thread before your start your own.
  5. Wait for the member to respond before you go ballistic on a thread, again they owe your nothing and probably has a life outside these community.
  6. Use proper English.
  7. Never type your entire message in CAPS.

  9. Only upload materials that are not obscene.
  10. Never deviate from the topic of discussion. You have personal conversations for a reason use it.
  11. "Thank You" or "I Like This" or any other one liners have no purpose. If you like the content just use the like button to say thank your for the author.
  12. Respect me :) because I love you guys.I am working as hard as ever to keep this as the premier resource for our biotech community and I need your help.
  13. Respect moderators. Breaking up flame wars or cleaning up trash is not easy and all they get in response is a tirade.
  14. If you have read so far, I am sure you will have enough etiquette to be part of any online community.
Here is a quick video of the same.
