Do we modulate our interactions according to the various sections of ISC?Just some random thoughts of mine. Having been in ISC for around 10 months, I see a certain difference among members when they interact at ISC in the various sections.
Ask the Experts: No issues, people contribute at varying time lengths, happy with Rs 1 to Rs 15 for their replies. No harsh words against each other or the editors of AE.
Articles: Standarad contributors scoring 20-140 points, occasional issues we hear is about delay in apporval, a deduction in points if the response is just rhyming the article views.
GD: Having seen GD on PG education before job, coalition politics and football, we are all very courteous to each other, we strive hard to put across our views, no controversies, no arguements. Above all, everyone follows the rules.
E-book, TOW contests, Quizs, Riddles: No issues apart from occasional member not able to participate. The odd issue with cc for non winning entries. But no harsh words, everyone is polite, sticking to the rules.
Forum: The best for the last, we have few days of eternal sunshine, some behind getting points, some happy with drop once in a while, some testing waters on topics which they like. Suddenly, like the weather, the atmosphere of the forum changes, all heaven breaks loose, harsh words, locked threads, personal verbal online duels, challenging authority, minus points.
We all have our right to express ourselves. But why this happens in forum? leaving a bitter taste. Is it just the nature of forum, is it because forum is sort of complaint box? or is it we have been in this for a long time? is forum very personal for us to put across our views?
I welcome views from both sides members and ISC team please.
