• PASCAL_LESSONS Echo Rules

    From Moderator@1:3634/12 to All on Tue Nov 1 00:00:06 2016
    |Conference rules for the PASCAL_LESSONS echo: rev. 29 May 14 |Posting Frequency: 1st of the month.
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    1. The purpose of this echo is to discuss Pascal, programming, and
    topics related to learning both subjects. Please stay on these
    topics.

    2. Moderating handled by the echo Moderator, who is Mark Lewis
    (1:3634/12).

    3. Polite behavior and language is expected: personal attacks, flaming,
    and off-topic messages are not tolerated. One warning will be
    given for any "violation"; a 2nd occurrence will result in
    dismissal from the echo.

    4. Discussions about "best" compilers, books, techniques, etc. are
    welcomed - while they remain on topic. However, "bashing" of
    related issues (vendors, users, processes, etc.) is not. We are,
    first and foremost, trying to be helpful - things which invade this
    "atmosphere" are undesirable and may result in Moderator action.
    Please maintain your opinions within the context of the echo.

    5. Posted code _should_be_tested_, if possible; untested code should
    be noted as such. Mention of compiler version and level is always
    appreciated: not everyone has or uses the latest version.
    Toleration of mistakes and errors is expected - we are human.

    6. Posted code must be Public Domain - proprietary code or programs
    are not permitted, unless such permissions is specifically granted
    by the software author.

    7. This echo, named PASCAL_LESSONS, is not a substitute for doing
    school/class assignments. The best "answer" is always to ask your
    teacher or read the documentation - most questions can be handled
    in that manner. Participants are not here to do your homework, nor
    do our answers or opinions guarantee correctness. (Note that
    submitting our work, possibly not fully understood, can be _very_
    embarrassing...)

    8. As with all technical echoes, vague or general questions are hard
    to answer - specifics are always best (code snippets, detail errors
    or diagnostic messages, etc.). Chances for getting timely and
    accurate answers are enhanced by complete problem descriptions.

    10. Binary (UUencoded) data and messages cannot be processed - please
    confine traffic to normal lower ASCII data.

    11. Personal comments to the moderator should be taken to NetMail -
    don't ask SysOps to pay for routing personal traffic throughout
    FidoNet.

    12. Some subjects may be of very technical nature, and participants of
    this echo may not be able (or qualified) to answer such questions.
    The Pascal Echo is often better able to deal with them, which should
    be posted there. This will not occur automatically, and don't be
    offended by our (apparent) unwillingness to respond to very
    technical questions.

    13. The PASCAL_LESSONS echo is not a substitute for the Pascal Echo,
    either - the two work together to cover the many needs of Pascal
    programmers. Elementary Pascal questions are posted in Pascal, but
    they should be directed here, if possible.

    14. Appreciation for the answers given is assumed: there is no need to
    post message(s) which only thank someone for for an answer or help.

    15. Note that "RTFM" should not be taken as a flame or insult - it is
    normally only a reminder that the information being sought can be
    found in the manual or documentation, and is an acceptable
    abbreviation for that response.

    16. BBS "handles" and aliases are not permitted - real names only.
