etiquette

Post by buffetslayer » Sun Mar 18, 2012 11:27 pm

I come from a martial arts background and I'm used to quite strict etiquette and code of conduct at training etc. Eg bow on entering the dojo, refer to instructor as sensei, not to step onto the mats until invited by sensei ..... You get the picture. So are there any similar practices I should be aware of as a newbie? Any guidance would be helpful :twothumbsup:

There is one inviolable rule that one must follow on this website: be cool!

Reckon you handle it? :smile:

Oh, and there's a real nasty moderator here called Catmoon. Be sure to stroke him and throw some cat nibbles his way once in a while, otherwise he'll get real nasty and sharpen his claws on your upholstery.

Just a quick bow before every post should be ok.

Welcome to Dharmawheel. Now, to your question:

It's always good practice to bow to your sensei.

the point: so long as you're here to learn and follow the TOS, you're in good shape. don't sweat it.

I love that photo. I have a cat who looks and thinks like that. She is very small (probably the runt of the litter), but bosses the other cats around.

(1 internet etiquette rule)

I wouldn't assume that I knew everything before just getting started.
