Site Etiquette Reminder


I regret feeling that this form of rudeness must be addressed at all, since the vast majority of our members are very polite, but there have been several occurences recently, so apparently it is time for a reminder of that lesson that most of us learned from our parents and grandparents:
"If you don't have anything nice to say - don't say anything."

Specifically:
Do NOT take it upon yourself to publicly chastise other members nor to play self-appointed site policeman,
doing so is a reportable offense and may result in administrative action being taken against you.


If you feel that you see something inappropriate about any thread/post at PlantSwap.net, then click on the report button () that corresponds to that post and submit it for moderation.

And when a member places a thread in our Plant and Seed Exchange forum - either offering or requesting trades, it is rude and inappropriate for any other member to seize that opportunity to add their post(s) to that thread for no other purpose than to criticize the original poster and/or their offer/request, or to try to derail their proposed swap with observations about what you may or may not have seen available in your local stores.
In fact, if you do not have interest in participating in the proposed swap, then there is really not much reason for you to add a reply to that thread at all.

Once such an offer/request is posted, the details (plant-for-plant, postage fees, etc.) are best discussed via PMs between the original poster and interested parties, rather than in the open thread (which seems to tempt others to add their 2 worth).
It is absolutely fine to add a post to the thread expressing your interest in participating in the proposed swap, but the actual details should be a private discussion between those members.

Thank you.
