Forum Netiquette Rules

Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Netiquette began as a word in an internet forum. It was a joke. Maybe that is why I have waited so long to add forum Netiquette to the rules of Netiquette. An internet forum is a discussion board or boards with topics and themes where users post content and others respond with threads. I have taken so many online courses recently that I cannot ignore the Netiquette any longer.

Last night I began setting my own standard for forum Netiquette. Forum Netiquette rules facilitate positive discussion and online engagement because they are designed to connect participants. Forum Netiquette rules bring people together.

Forum Netiquette Rules
  • It is proper Netiquette to post your picture with a resolution of at least 160 by 160 in the upper left hand corner of each post.
  • It is proper Netiquette to post an introduction with your name and location.
  • It is proper Netiquette to post content from one to three paragraphs in length.
  • It is proper Netiquette to post content with lists and bullet points.
  • It is proper Netiquette to subscribe to interesting threads.

Please be advised that these are not the Netiquette rules for asking and answering questions. Asking and answering questions has a separate set of Netiquette rules that will be addressed in a later blog. Those forums include online education domains and other special interest forums.

Gumroad Netiquette Rules

Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
This blog is the conclusion to the post Gumroad to the Information Age and e-commerce platforms, Netiquette rules for Informatization. Basically, there are two other components of the Information Age that work with Netiquette that must be developed. Basic Netiquette gets it started, business creates its own.

The Information Age is a time period in world history where the internet is the basis of the economy, but how do you get paid?

Making an online payment is as simple as entering a credit card number into a form or using a point of sale device with an internet connection. Gumroad allows you to accept online payment without a merchant account for processing credit card transactions. They accept payment, pay the credit card processing fee, and charge you a premium on each sale. 

Gumroad Netiquette Rules
  • It is proper Netiquette for Gumroad sellers to have a website and buyers to visit it.
  • It is proper Netiquette to sell or purchase items with complete descriptions.
  • It is proper Netiquette for sellers to have a picture on their website and buyers to view it.
  • It is proper Netiquette for sellers to have a return policy and buyers to read it.
  • It is proper Netiquette for buyers and sellers to share Gumroad product links in social media.
In conclusion, a lot of people want the Information Age, it is trending. Some people resist change. This is my plan. 

I developed my own editorial process to provide the resources to the people and economies when they are ready as a hobby. Ideas start out on this blog. Article outlines are developed on my WordPress blog. Small articles appear in the Newsletter. Then, when I am satisfied with what I have written, I am going to put it on Informatization in the blog App I built myself with Ruby in the MVC design pattern. I hope all the dot coms are impressed and I get a good job working with great people.

Consumer To Consumer Netiquette

Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Business has a style to it. It is a professional style, business Netiquette. Some may argue that consumer to consumer sales has no style. Traditionally, consumer to consumer sales have been considered unprofessional. 

The Information Age is changing the basis of our economy by adding a new layer of Netiquette for informatization because intellectual property, information, becomes the basis. Information becoming the basis of the economy changes the sales process and market distribution of products. It makes consumer to consumer sales a larger portion of the economy. It makes them popular.

The internet is being used for e-commerce by everyone, which makes consumer to consumer sales a new market. This new market is the additional layer of Netiquette for informatization. Craigslist, eBay, PayPal, Square, and Half.com are popular consumer to consumer sales websites. 

eBay, for example, allows consumers to sell brand name products in the same market as corporations. The physical product or service is not the basis of the transaction in the case of eBay. The basis of the transaction is the information provided by the seller. It is the Information Age. Netiquette is how you make sales because it denotes popular information dissemination techniques, rules of Netiquette.

Netiquette Rules for Consumer To Consumer Sales
  • It is proper Netiquette for a consumer seller to have a website with an about section.
  • It is proper Netiquette for a consumer buyer to read the about section of a consumer sellers website.
  • It is proper Netiquette to verify consumer to consumer sales and identities with email authentication.
  • It is proper Netiquette to use a credit card and reader for in person consumer to consumer sales.
  • It is proper Netiquette to refuse personal checks for consumer to consumer sales.

These e-commerce tips come from experience working with merchants. Each rule is based on a situation that I have handled for merchants.

Tutorial Netiquette Rules


Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
The internet is very helpful. There are a lot of things it can teach you. One way we learn new things from the internet is the video tutorial. Video tutorials come in all formats and lengths. MP4 and QuickTime are common video tutorial formats found on the internet. The length varies. Most are in the range of 3 to 10 minutes.

Video tutorials are videos that show you how to do something. They provide valuable lessons for informatization when used with proper Netiquette because they teach us how to use the internet.

Netiquette Books
Netiquette Books
I have utilized video tutorials for creating a Table of Contents for eBooks on Smashwords. There are several WordPress installation videos that were helpful in setting up the plugin for a website. In fact, a tutorial taught me how to sew a button on my jacket. Tutorials have given me good information that has helped me sell my books, build a website, and look good doing it. It's all good Netiquette.

Tutorial Netiquette Rules
  • It is proper Netiquette to watch the whole tutorial before you try and perform the tasks.
  • It is proper Netiquette to follow the actions of the instructor on your machine.
  • It is proper Netiquette to pause the tutorial when performing the action steps.
  • It is proper Netiquette to ask questions in forums if you get stuck on a tutorial.
  • It is proper Netiquette to comment about extreme issues encountered.

These rules will help you learn from others on the internet. Look for tutorials on YouTube and Vimeo among other places. Thanks for reading. Practice proper Netiquette.

October Netiquette News


Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
The Netiquette News is something I have always loved, but have never really found a way to fit it into Netiquette. I have a background in technical support within the customer service field including writing technical letters. So, Netiquette comes naturally based on my family interest, professional experience, educational background, and personal interests. 

I am the descendant of Persian Royalty on my Mothers' side. In the past my professional endeavors led me to author technical letters and provide technical support for electronic commerce. Education has always been something for me to seek out, which I have, earning the equivalent of a computer science degree with a concentration in internet programming. Personally, I am a technology Geek, Netiquette Man. A guy who will help you with your technology and loves to report about it.

Reporting the news is something a little different than Netiquette News. Netiquette News is technology news and Netiquette opinion. The October Netiquette Newsletter is about 'how to': install software and get online discounts. There is a Netiquette update and two Netiquette How To: articles in this issue of the Netiquette Newsletter.

Netiquette News is basic information that everyone needs. It is complimentary to creating your own Netiquette style within the rules of Netiquette. Netiquette How To articles are a component of Netiquette Opinion in the mission statement. The mission of the Netiquette Newsletter is to provide Technology News and Netiquette Opinion. 

The subscribers receive email messages with exclusive content. The Netiquette Newsletter website contains full versions of the articles in the newsletter. The exclusive content provided in the newsletter is based solely on the domains of the subscribers. 

For example, the exclusive content provided this edition of the Netiquette Newsletter is the definition of online community. This definition is a short hand explanation. It comes from the definition provided in the book Internet Etiquette: Netiquette Fundamentals, Rules, & Optimization. 

Netiquette - Internet Etiquette
Netiquette - Internet Etiquette
Many of the technical definitions used come from the book The Principles of Netiquette. The definitions provided in my books and written throughout the website are comprehensive. The definitions contained in the Netiquette Dictionary currently are a quick read style guide. A premium Netiquette Dictionary may be needed.

The Netiquette Newsletter compliments Netiquette for informatization. Informatization is a word and a website. The domain is primarily controlled by China. I own the .net version. Informatization is an overarching concept for Netiquette that fits the news into the concept of Netiquette. 

Basically, Netiquette is required for informatization. Informatization creates more Netiquette. Basic Netiquette is informatization. Advanced Netiquette is style. I have decided that it is going to be a concept that includes freedom and equality. I own the domains.

In any event. The online community is coming together quite nicely in my humble opinion. This edition of the Newsletter represents a lot of professional growth for me on a personal level. The Netiquette Newsletter and subscriber list are the exact skills Zion Partners suggested I display in my portfolio at a recent meeting. 

The Netiquette Newsletter website uses a PHP back-end framework that they were interested in me proving I could work with. The actual email is another skill mentioned in the meeting. They wanted examples of responsive emails. It is a html responsive email using the Mail Chimp platform to organize the campaigns integrated with Wufoo forms for sign up from the Netiquette website. This edition is just the first professional level work I have done. There is a lot more I am going to do. There is a lot more I can do.

Evernote Netiquette Rules

Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Evernote is popular App that is very underrated. I used it on my desktop, laptop, and tablet to plan chapters for my books. It was crucial in capturing brainstorming sessions. For me, typing my thoughts into a structured document that I knew was not going to turn into a Word Processing document gave it a new angle. A good Evernote document conveys clear notes with neat graphics and nice formatting.


Netiquette - Internet Etiquette

It is proper Netiquette to take notes with Evernote because the App, desktop, website, and mobile, creates good notes. The software has the capabilities of a word processor with the power of a slide show presentation because of formatting, integration with other Apps, and other features and benefits. There are Netiquette rules, which, can be followed as advice or tips for style to assist in effective communication. These Netiquette rules are common practices. Feel free to add your own to come up with your own style.


Evernote Netiquette Rules
  • It is proper Netiquette to make comprehensive notes that contain relevant resources and references.

In conclusion, Evernote is a great big App. The way in which it is distributed appears to be a clear model for creating and using internet based applications going forward. It is such a good App others will model their businesses after it because we find its simplicity so useful in a crowded market. Take great notes and practice proper Netiquette.

Rules of Netiquette for Ordering Groceries Online

Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
I was thinking about how to get people interested in e-commerce because the current market is so inefficient. It is unreasonable to spend time shopping because time is such a precious commodity. There are a lot better things anyone could be doing than shopping. 

Shopping is a routine activity that is done by most people or households. Buying groceries is the simplest shopping activity to order online because it is so routine. There are several grocery stores that allow online ordering and delivery. Amazon offers the service in large cities. 


Netiquette - Internet Etiquette
Netiquette - Internet Etiquette
I have been having groceries delivered for a while. There is a culture to it. It reminds me of having milk delivered in the old days. We actually had Milk delivered when I grew up. My Grandma Nettie even knows how to do it. She loves the Amazon delivery driver the most.

Each company has their own way of delivering groceries. There are things you can do and ways to get the best deals, Netiquette.


Online Grocery Netiquette Rules
  • It is proper Netiquette to order groceries for next day delivery.
  • It is proper Netiquette to pick up special items yourself.
  • It is proper Netiquette to keep your phone on during the delivery window.
  • It is proper Netiquette to prepare a place for the groceries to be placed.
  • It is proper Netiquette to have a clean home for the delivery person.

Korea is already there, and I am not sure at the state of China's development, but they are using my site more than S. Korea now. Using the Google Books App with proper Netiquette will get us, USA, into the Information Age faster than without because the Netiquette will make learning popular.

Kindle App eReading Rules

Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud

Reading a book on an electronic device is different than reading a book in real life, irl. Website reading does not count as an eBook either. Website reading feels like a chore in some cases because the font is so small and hard to read. eBooks are a lot better, but it depends on the e-Reader as well.

The Kindle App from Amazon is a great e-Reader because it creates a customized experience for reading eBooks.  The App indents the first line of each paragraph for you. It uses large font with greater space in between lines than most websites place in between lines of text. The display is full screen.
Netiquette - Internet Etiquette

The App turns Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS computers, mobile devices, and electronics into e-Readers. There is a Kindle App in the Windows App Store, Windows Phone App Store, Mac App Store, Google Play Store, and iTunes App Store. Below are the rules of Netiquette for using the App.

Kindle App Netiquette Rules
  • It is proper Netiquette to install the Kindle App on all mobile devices.
  • It is proper Netiquette to install the Kindle App on all desktops.
  • It is proper Netiquette to build a library.
  • It is proper Netiquette to read all mobile eBooks with the Kindle App.
  • It is proper Netiquette to shop the Kindle Store.

Bitbucket Netiquette Rules


Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Principles of Netiquette Cloud
Bitbucket is similar to Naptster, but it is for Nerds. Napster was a very popular music file sharing domain. Bitbucket is a legitimate file sharing network. Like Napster it has a cult like following. Unlike Napster the files it shares are software programs. A Bitbucket account is part of a balanced online image for programmers. Nerds, geeks, and others interested in the internet should have profiles as well because it provides access to programs you cannot get anywhere else.

Bitbucket is a file repository and version control system for software applications. It is a free service that allows users to upload, download, and share software at all stages of development. There are various privacy and sharing settings for working on software in groups. A variety of open source software is available on the site from various users.
