2014 – A New Neowin
Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a great holiday and hope you have a great New Year. I wanted to take the time for Neowin Members to take a pledge for 2014. Neowin forums have rocked back and fourth pretty bad in the past two years..
Here are some things I would like for Neowin Members to focus on for the new year..
1. Posting negative comments for no good reason
-An example of this would be, when a brand is being discussed and someone replies with unexplained negativity. If someone post about Android or Linux doing well, there isn’t a need for smartass empty comments.
2. Start Menu Debate
- After all the threads and post, we know what other members want and don’t want. There is no sense rehashing this debate over and over. Example. If a start menu thread comes about in the next windows and someone post, “we don’t need a start menu”, just let it go. If someone doesn’t want or does want the start menu, just let them be, no sense insulting them or trying to change someone’s mind..
3. Fanboy Hate
-If someone is team PS4 or Team Xbox, and can’t post a thought out post and it just empty trolling, report it to a mod.. It isn’t just these two brands, but hopefully you get the idea.. People are so emotional about their gaming console..
-Ok, more than likely you posted 100 times that you don’t like Apple, good for you. When a story comes about Apple, there isn’t a need to start a flame war or posting “GOOD” when something bad happens to them.
5. Healthy Debating
-Yes, this a tech forum and we are going to like different products.. If you are going to defend your product or trash another, back it up with facts, don’t just post hate with empty thoughts..
I’m all for healthy trolling, taking stabs, having fun.. But, some people take things to serious and things spin out of control. They get so passionate about their company they support and it just seems ridiculous. I challenge us to all post more thought out and educated post. If there is something else you think Neowin Members should focus on in the new year, lets hear it..
