Respecting Fellow Community Members

Bri-Hageman wrote on 1/3/2020, 1:41 PM

Dear Community,

We've noticed a growing number of comments directed from one participant to another that can easily be interpreted as rude, hostile, aggressive, or otherwise undesirable. This community thrives because of the helpful interaction between it's members. We all get frustrated, angry, and short tempered now and then, but please keep in mind Community Rule #1, Respect the opinions and views of other members of the community. The rule does not say you have to agree. It just points out that respect is critical to this forum. Everyone here wants to help. Please keep this in mind as we head into a fresh new year.

Best regards,

It's ok to disagree, without being disagreeable.

Thank you for reminding about this.

Thank you, civility is important to maintain here.

If everyone, including me, would take the time and care to read and comment only on the original topic, instead of side-commenting on other's replies, this problem would be 50% solved.

I am saddened that we have apparently disillusioned a new user, and misrepresented the brand, by jumping into the middle of a narrow discussion with another Off-Topic free-for-all. Being aware of the whole discussion is more important than my, or anyone's views on the price of caviar in Beluga, which is still pretty important ;?)

i know that when i put a post up (being a new video creator) i feel soo humbled by the way some people answer as they know i dont know much so they put it in the most watered down version so i can understand what they are saying

What if you cant afford a therapist and rely on self directed aggressive responses on anonymous forums for anally retentive obsessive compulsive video editors?

Nice. If they get under your skin, they own you.

It's also a reminder that no matter how badly you think you are being treated, the only thing that is in your control is how you respond.

Wait! Is BillyBoy back? (Only the Vegas forum old-timers will get this reference.)

I remember Billy Boy. That WAS long ago (and in a galaxy far, far away, to be sure...)

As a nearly 20-year user and lifetime lover & defender of Vegas, I STILL come here and STILL learn new things. You don't have to be a newbie to need help from time to time. I agree that this forum has always been one of the most friendly and helpful. You go to Adobe, and half the time, the attitude is "what's wrong with you...?"

This is, for the most part, a great group of people. I personally don't believe that Vegas would still be around if it weren't for the general caliber and attitude of its users.

And good to see @John_ClineΒ drop back in!

Things would be so much simpler if folks would just realize that we all have different perspectives and attempt to participate in a discussion rather than to immediately seek to engage in a debate.

A good habit to develop: "Seek to understand, before seeking to be understood."

I'd also like to remind of the original Post's message: "We all get frustrated, angry, and short tempered now and then, but please keep in mind Community Rule #1,Β Respect the opinions and views of other members of the community." That includes refraining from personal attacks.

I'm not always in a good mood, sometimes I just go off, but, I have a special folder for just this reason...

An old boss of mine used to say, "Be careful of the toes you step on today because they might be connected to ass you have to kiss tomorrow." Maybe that's less true on the Internet. But even still, it is best to be polite.
