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.

Pinned thread about 'KDE4 support' still mentions prefix and KDE3 - so hopelessly outdated and should be unpinned unless getting a complete rewrite.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