Enough is Enough.

I haven't wrote an article about my perspective on the fingerbording scene in a while. Well, I decided that I will write about gaining respect. Obviously, when someone first enters into a scene, they do not have any respect at all. Also, there are multiple ways to gain, and lose, respect. One way is to show a high amount of skill for the task being performed. Another way is to contribute a large amount to the community. And even another way is to have a likeable personality. I am going to talk about how to gain respect through personality.

How can I get people to treat me with respect? I would say the best way is to treat others with respect, and understand the perspective another person has. I see so many people flame away at a person on a forum for absolutely no reason other than they disagree with the person's opinion. Everytime I see this I think "Great, we now know you are an idiot as well".

I also hear excuses all the time from people about why they act the way they do. Well, all it takes is a few minutes to think a responses through, and not make the attacks personal, and the forums would be a much better place.

Don't make stupid posts. Use some judgement in your posts. If you think people won't like it then don't post at all.

I am not just targeting the new members on the forums, but also the veteran members as well. I see the veterans act as bad or even worse at times. Be an example and guide the new members.
