Thread: Programming Resources
Rule #1 - (Most important) Do your own work:
If you copy and paste code and claim it to be your program expect to get flamed there are no ands ifs or buts about it, nobody is gonna stroke your e-penis just because you have mastered the keyboard.
Rule #2 - Don't post useless things:
This rule is a little tricky because it comes down to whats deemed as useless. IMO posting such things as oh hey I made a webbrowser off a youtube tut would fall into this category. However should you choose to expand on that and say add tabs and a history and even a simple user login system or things of that nature it is no longer useless and becomes something that you can truly call your own
Rule #3 - Flaming:
I am as guilty of this as every one of you. If somebody doesn't do the things I mentioned above sure go ahead and give them a piece of your mind however one or two statements about it is all you need, there is no reason a thread should be dragged out to 6+ pages because you are on your period say what you have to say and than be done with it.
Rule #4 AIO's:
Now this is again really comes down to the community's opinion. Its all well and good that you threw a bunch of tuts together etc but this falls into the category of useless source whoring and as mentioned above expect to be flamed. However should you truly create something that is new and innovative by all means share it, but if you just copy the look of every other AIO out there than please don't post it just use it yourself and be happy with it.
Rule #5 - Useless posts:
When somebody creates a thread inhere asking for help please please don't reply with one or two words or something ****ing dumb like lolwut ? granted there question may make absolutely no sense try to make a somewhat educated response so that the person gets helped sooner rather than later.
Rule #6 - Useless threads:
It's all well and good that you made a new program and want to beta release it, but if you make a beta thread than don't make 6 other beta threads with each change you make, instead just keep updating that thread and informing people of what you have changed until you make the release thread. And if flaming is going on PM a mod about it don't just make a new thread.
Rule #7 - Respect the experienced members:
Look if you just joined you may be trustworthy but in the communities opinion you aren't so if make a thread be open to suggestions and don't get deffensive, the more you listen the more success you will have as well as getting a better reputation around here.
Rule #8 - Virus scans:
Personally I don't believe one needs to be posted if you are a trusted member, however the less trusted/respected members you should include one just because it builds trust. If you would like a virus scan because one is not posted then PM a mod and they will check it out for you but if you don't trust it don't download it, its as simple as that. Don't sit here and ***** about it.
Rule #9 - Download links:
This one really annoys me, if you provide a download link for your program make it a direct link, no share cash or ad.fly because that just makes you look like an ***. No body wants to go through all that trouble to download your program. If you have money generating links your thread will be removed, only use sites such as Megaupload, Rapidshare or your own domain.
Rule #10 - Screen shots:
These should always be included if possible. If you have the time to make a thread and provide a download link than you can upload a screen shot. It's what really helps people understand what they are about to download.
Rule #11 - Saying thanks:
If you like a users program than do not be afraid to say thanks by posting but don't just post the literal word thanks make a informed post. This should include why you liked it etc, you should also click the thanks button in addition if you do this.
Rule #12 - Helping people:
When helping somebody if you tell them to use something than provide a link for it so that they can find it, it does no good by just telling them to use it.
Rule #13 - Teamviewer:
If you choose to help somebody because you know what the problem is than don't just say oh send me your teamviewer id and pass because they may not have it and there is no reason to do all that for the slight knowledge that you posses however should it be something that actually needs to be shown than go ahead but you are just waisting peoples time when you say send me your teamviewer info for very simple lines of code that can be posted.
