Lately, I have noticed an abundance of reviews where the thread starter appears to be an idiot.
With this tutorial, I will guide you on the steps needed to post a review without looking like that complete idiot.
Avoid Non-AlphaNumeric characters In Thread Titles
Some of the most idiotic posts are those where the thread creator will wrap the title in *'s, $'s, #'s, and @'s. This is not to say you may not use a special character in thread titles, but you should avoid using them in an unnecessary fashion.
Use Proper Capitalization
One of the most irritating things a thread poster can do is TYPE THEIR ENTIRE THREAD TITLE IN CAPITAL LETTERS. Use your indoor typing style, and avoid looking like an idiot.
Use a maximum of 3 !'s in your thread. Anything more is just annoying.
Don't go flaming a host because your website went down for 20 minutes one month. If they run such a system, make sure to keep up with your host's scheduled maintenance outage system. If you cannot access your website, the problem may be on your own connection. Contact some friends who are on different internet connections, and ask them if they can access your website. If they are also unable to access your website, contact your host's support team. If they fail to respond after 36 hours, run a whois query
on their domain, and attempt to locate a phone number where they can be reached. If nobody answers when you call, you have a right to bitch.
Keep use of the
smiley to a minimum. Remember the Proper Caplitalization rule, and do not type complete sentences, or even complete words in all caps.
"My Host doesn't know anything!"
If you believe your host is an idiot, save some live chat / helpdesk conversations, and post them with your review. That'll help your review even more.
"My Website is Always Down"
Setup a siteuptime.com account to monitor your website's uptime, with your review, post your statistics in screenshot or plain old statistics.
Prove You are a Customer
Make sure to include the domain you are hosting with the company in your post, or in your profile. If you lie, we will know.
Make sure to read and follow the WHT Rules
wherever you post.
