General Ethics to be followed while posting in threads of forum

Hello All – someone has drafted some very good tips for smooth , healthy and cordial functioning of a this forum. It definitely adds value to each and every post besides maintaining good relations .

How to function in Civil4m forum thread?

1. Know the purpose / reason for the formation of the group and act accordingly.

2. Confirm the validity of the news you wish to share in your group before circulating it.

3. If the news you circulate is true, you will be respected by the members. It brings honour to you and your group.

4. Discussion- unless necessary, deal individually with a member. Message or chat with the member privately.

5. Post only useful news. This will elevate your status.

6. Since we are in more than one group, there is a tendency to repeat the postings. Delete a video or picture immediately after viewing it once. If you receive the same material, delete it at once.

7. Avoid posting a series of materials at one go. Avoid sharing more than one picture or video at the same time. Your sharing may appear to be a burden to your friends.

8. Before sharing a video or picture with the others, consider carefully if it’s worth sharing or if it has been shared previously ; then, go ahead and share.

9. Don’t share incorrect medical related messages. Don’t support rumours. This may pose a threat to all group members' health.

10. Don’t share violent, gruesome, atrocious pictures/videos/animations/documents e.g .murder , chopping of hands, indecent pictures, pornography.

11. Refrain from sending morning, afternoon evening / night greetings and motivational quotes pictures, text messages, gifs, videos, documents in the chat group. It is assumed that all group members are motivated and energetic.

12. Conduct yourself such that the group admin is not affected or hated by our postings.

13. When posting about needs in the group, specify the day and type your name in the message. The others in the group will come to know your name. Several medical or educational needs are being shared for many years.

14. Don’t remain mute spectator in the group all the time.

15. When forwarding videos / pictures, don’t forget to indicate the content of the material. Many of us fail to do this.

16. Try to post short and simple text only posts

17. Try to limit the number of posts to 1 or 2 per day. This will facilitate that group members are able to read all messages after a long break/pause and useful posts are not missed out.

18. Posting of private pictures viz. family photos, family trips, etc is a strict NO. However you may share your achievements,good news, solutions in the group and also ask for help in case of problem.

19. Posting derogatory, communal messages intentionally or unintentionally may hurt someone's sentiments which may create problem for all group members, admin as these type of messages come under the ambit of law.

This is strictly a no non sense group.

Thank You for reading the guidelines.
