This will allow an easy method of contacting all moderators at one time.
  • Users:
    • If you spot what you believe to be a duplicate post, please post a link to it here. In addition, include a link to what is being duplicated.
    • If you find a post you think belongs in a different forum, let us know.
    • Avoid multiple reports of spam:
      • If a user's posts are all spam, report the user, not the posts.
      • Review this thread after submitting a report. Please delete your report if someone beat you to the punch.
    • Any other post that you think requires moderation (violations of Guidelines, broken BBcode, etc.).

  • Moderators:
    • Please delete posts after you've addressed them.
Thanks in advance.

PostPosted: Wed Jun 29, 2016 4:34 pm    Post subject: netiquette : bad communication !! Reply with quote

User: lhw828
Topic: all
Reason: lack of propriety. This person should change its communication and respect the good manners.

What would happen if everyone uses this communication? -- best regards, feng

Considering the Chinese in some of their output, it could simply be a case of a language barrier, which often can't be mended that easily via behavioural changes. That said, I wonder if they know of our 中文 (Chinese) section. Either way, they seem to have been able to more or less communicate their needs thus far, and at least I don't quite know what to do to improve the situation (no punishment at least comes to mind that would do so).

Thanks for the report, though!

Topic: Firefox 47 fails to compile
Post: post 7938096
Reason: Needs a LART; frequently goes mass-bumping threads off the Unanswered Posts list, almost always giving plain wrong or completely off topic replies -- this one post's just the worst example of many I've seen today.

User: chaoscommander
Topic: I_KNOW_WHAT_I_AM_DOING=1 does nothing
Post: post 7942942
Reason: Violation of guideline --> 5. Choose a good subject.
--------- I guess he likes to have fun. ------------

[Modified his title a bit. Keeping that variable in the title and describing the problem runs up against the title length limit though. -Hu]

User: tw04l124
Topic: Problems with stability...
Post: post 7943258
Reason: Follow-up to Ant P. - again immune to a strong hint he himself is being offtopic, with a lot of words. I'm sure it's in good faith, but needs to work on reading comprehension.

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-708282.html

Pinned thread about 'KDE4 support' still mentions prefix and KDE3 - so hopelessly outdated and should be unpinned unless getting a complete rewrite.

User: KShots
Topic: kde-plasma/sddm-kcm crashes when activated
Post: post 7948384
Reason: One issue, three threads (https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1048846.html, https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1048848.html)

Thank you. Tidied up and PMed the user. -- NeddySeagoon

User did manage to open another thread while tidying up: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1048850.html

The reported user seems to disagree that these are all duplicates. For now, I merged the extra topic (1048850) into kde-plasma/sddm-kcm crashes when activated. If the user makes a good case that these ought to be separate threads, we can split them back out again. -Hu

In the (very) unlikely event that it is not one single issue, it is still better than having to ask for the same information 4 times.

Agreed. It is a balance between coordinating the same information requests in multiple threads versus coordinating several unrelated problems in a single thread. I combined the threads on the expectation that there will be one solution to address all of the problems, but am open to reversing that if the user reports that some problems have been solved and others remain unsolved.
