Netiquette is the fusing of the words Network and Etiquette. They apply to all aspects of your wheeling and dealing on the Internet, whether it be the content of your website, an email, or chat room banter. Much of it is common sense, but there are some elements of it that are borne out of the medium we’re communicating through (that would be text).
The main rule to stick by is:
- treat people like you would want to be treated.
You have to be polite and considerate to anyone you meet. Always consider whether your comment may be appropriate, and whether it could cause hurt feelings. Be careful about how your words come across (misunderstandings can be common). Without a tone of voice, unless you’re a great writer, a sarcastic or otherwise harmless comment can often come off the wrong way. Use emoticons to show your tone.A nasty comment or critical email can ruin someone’s day.
- take a while to familiarise yourself with the rules that may apply.
When writing for a web site the concept of ‘audience’ becomes even more important. If you’re going for a broad range of visitors then you pretty much have to keep all the swearing, blasphemy and secret hatreds to yourself. If, you decide to aim for a more focused group of people like teenagers, then you can relax on some of this (well, the swearing at any rate) and give people — and yourself — a little more freedom.
- Everybody should be aware of is that writing IN CAPITALS MAKES IT LOOK LIKE YOU’RE SHOUTING.
You’ll often hear people asking others to “lay off the caps”, and for good reason. Shouting makes you look like an idiot. Don’t type more than a few consecutive words in capitals. If you want to emphasise something, use the wealth of HTML options available to you. If those aren’t available, stick some *stars* around your text. There’s always an alternative.
- Typos and grammatical errors are largely unavoidable.
When writing for your website, these should always be eradicated using a spell-checker and, if possible, a manual check to find anything that your spell-checker didn’t. There’s no excuse for sending out a poorly-written page, as it wastes people’s often valuable online time. In the cut-and-thrust world of the chat room where retorts have to be flung out as fast as possible you’re not always able to catch mistakes before they happen
