Tips for posting in Community Discussions

  • Include a signature tag on all messages including your name, organisation/affiliation, and location. 
  • State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject.
  • Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply. Delete any header information and put your response before the original posting. 
  • Only send a message to the entire list when it contains information that everyone can benefit from. 
  • Send messages such as "thanks for the information" or "me, too" to individuals, not to the entire list. Do this by using "Reply to Sender" .
  • Do not send administrative messages, such as “remove me from the list,” to the group. Instead, go to you profile to change your settings or to remove yourself from a list.
