Hi guys, I've been commenting and following along in this thread in which f@rmboy suggested a code of conduct may be a good idea. I agree with this completely (although I think it sad that we can't just use common sense and courtesy like adults can), and as such have created a few. These are just some thoughts which I've placed in the Wiki, available here. They are also posted below for your info: Code of Conduct I will provide a positive contribution to the Photography forum. I will not attack, troll, or slander a person, nor will I be offensive or make derogatory comments about models, or other forum members. I will respect that every member of this forum has the right to share their opinion and I will treat others with respect and courtesy, as I would also like to be treated with the same respect and courtesy. Avoid derailing threads, bumping old threads. I don't have to comment on a photo if I don't like it. If I do, I will not attack the poster, nor make offensive or derogatory comments, but will respectfully state my opinion. I will not attempt to troll, nor actively spam these forums. I will search the forums before posting another 'what tripod to buy', or 'what DSLR is for me' thread, or other similar threads. The moderators decision/s are final. I will respect the copyright of other members and will not reproduce the photo under any circumstances unless I have their express permission. Most importantly, I will have fun!
