Forum Etiquette

To make the HWZ forums more inclusive to everyone, certain etiquette has to be adhered to. The forums are comprised of a diverse range of sub-forums; each sub-forum has, over time, developed its own set of unique guidelines to help new users along.

For example, some discussion areas, like the InfoTech Clinics, Current Affairs Lounge and Hobby areas, require a standard of English that will be easily understood by old, new, casual and even non-members alike. Other sub-forums have developed their own particular style of language which might not be easily grasped by new users.

However, sticky threads may be present to introduce new users to the guidelines, culture, and (in some cases) frequently-used lingo and acronyms.

Kindly refer to sticky threads, if any, for helpful posting guidelines.
