Some Helpful Guidelines
for new board users :)
spend some time here on the site, and read through the articles and pages
of information provided. Many times if you have a question, you can
find the answer on the website, instead of having to ask on the board.
So take a look thru the menu and all of the resources I've spent so much
time putting together for you, and if you don't see a button for it, try
using the search feature on the main page.
searched the site and still could not find an answer or the info, then
we encourage you to post on the board and ask fellow candlemakers!
Many times you'll get a reply, or even several replies, and everyone can
read and learn from it together! If you don't get an answer right
away or at all, don't get discouraged! It may just be that no one
that knew the answer had time to read the board that day. Try surfing
thru the links
page and the other resources listed there, and if you don't find the
answers, you can always come back and try posting again.
sure to be clear on the subject of the post so people will know what the
question is right away. More people will respond to your question
if you use a detailed subject line, instead of just posting "I need help"
or something generic like that. People will also respond more when
you post with a friendly attitude and include your name and e-mail address.
Remember these are humans on the other end of the computer, so they appreciate
a nice "hello" and a "thank you"!
people don't behave as we would hope, and unfortunately we have no control
over that. If you ever receive a response or see a post you feel
was rude or inappropriate, please
do not post back to it!
Instead please contact
our moderators privately and I will look into it and take care of it!
Try to remember, there are many different personalities out there, and
what seems funny or acceptable to some, may not be to others. Try
not to jump to conclusions or jump down throats too fast! Sometimes
things aren't meant the way they were taken. We cannot see each other's
facial expressions or hear the tones in each other's voices, so it is difficult
to judge how a comment was meant. But no matter what, don't let an
occasional "bad apple" bother you! Posting back and arguing on the
board just makes the problem worse and puts a damper on the whole group.
Just ignore them, report
the problem to us, and everything will be fine :)
remember.... information and advice given here are the opinions and beliefs
of the various people who post here, and are not always necessarily true
or correct. Many times you may receive some very helpful advice and
information here, but it's always a good idea to double check the facts,
get other opinions and experiment for yourself. The Candle Cauldron™
is not responsible for any misinformation that may be posted, nor for anything
resulting from use of information found here.
have any questions about the board or the rules, do not post about it on
the board, just contact me privately by e-mail.
Please remember the rules are there for good reasons, and all I ask in
return for this free resource is that everyone be considerate and respectful
of my home on the web.
You & Happy Candlemaking!
