We've had a lot of new people join the site recently. Welcome! The more the merrier. The mods were doing some discussion, and we think it would be a good idea to put out of a guideline on how to have a good time on ZooChat. Be nice. This should be self-explanatory but sadly needs to be explained. When possible, use correct spelling and grammar. I know there are a lot of non-native English speaks here. My hat is doffed to you for speaking in a second tongue (or third or whatever ordinal). However, we all communicate best when we speak clearest. Google Chrome and Firefox have built-in spell-checkers. Also, I find the Google add-on Grammarly to be highly useful. We do have several English teachers on the site who are more than happy to do some extra grading (not really, no teacher wants extra grading). Before asking a question, try and find the answer yourself. Sadly, I've noticed this trend in my own teaching. Especially with younger people, they've lost the incentive to search for things on their own. This is a huge site that's been around for years. Please use the search bars at the top right of the screen to look for your answer. Older members do rather get tired of answering the same thing multiple times. Everyone on the internet gets treated exactly as they act. As this is a faceless medium, no one knows who you are, how old you are, or what you look like. We only know you as you present yourself. If you present yourself professionally, then you will be treated professionally in return. We welcome everyone and we want everyone to participate. Participating does not mean randomly sharing links to your blog of youtube channel and not doing anything else. In fact, these activities are considered rude acts of self-promotion and are usually deleted. If you want to share things, make sure you are also contributing to the community. Remember, we are all here to share and learn. Don't be the troll that gets in the way of that.
