    Simple. Don't spam. Read the rules. Reply to posts if you have something worthwhile to say. Ask if you have sensible questions. Answer questions if you have an answer. I think that probably covers the main elements.

      Totally Agree.. at the end of the day, it boils down to the value you provide on the WF.. regardless of our level of expertise, we will always not just respect but cherish valuable information received from fellow warriors..

      I have always been a strong follower that ADDING VALUE ON TO OTHERS CARRIES ME FURTHER AHEAD THAN JUST ADDING VALUE TO MY SELF..

      cheers

    I'm relatively new here on the warrior forum. But the one thing I've observed so far is that if you do anything wrong/disrespectful, People here wont hesitate to call you out on it.

    So yea, Be good

    Think of it this way.

    The people that spend less time thinking about how to gain a good reputation on the forum, but rather provide insightful threads, posts and comments, find themselves with a good reputation on the forum.

    Think of everyone here as being a really good friend to you and treat them the way you would treat your really close friends.... think of it as building relationships up with your fellow warriors. Some people come on here a try to spam BUT that just wont cut it.

    Just be yourself and get into the conversations and you will be fine.

      hey, I dont completely agree with you.

      yes, you need to be friendly and not to spam.

      but being friendly and treat somebody as a close friend is two different things.

      most of people would not want to be close friends with you, so focus on providing value and being friendly and you're good to go.

    How have you obtained respect in various groups in your offline life? How did you obtain it at your job? At school? With your various social circles?

    Pretty much works the same here. It takes time. You can't "barge" into a group and demand respect... you have to earn it. And as to how you earn, again, look at how you do it in your offline life.

    Cheers,

    Hello satio,

    There are many ways on how to build respect here in the Warrior Forum, most of them, you already know. Dealing with virtual people in this forum is like dealing with people whom you see face to face.

    One thing that we all have to remember: don't respond/say/utter words in a condescending tone. No matter how stupid the question of the OP is, even if he's asking for the answer to the equation "1+1=?," respond kindly.

    You may encounter proud people here sometimes. Don't engage in an argument if it isn't worthwhile staying in that argument. Nobody knows you any better than yourself.

    Contribute. Educate. Ask.

    Don't ever spam the forum. Never include any of your affiliate links in your posts.

    Always try to he helpful and don't comment in any thread unless you got something good to say. Too many people just post things like "I agree" "Yes, you can" types of short posts just to get their signature seen by as many people as possible.

    Show respect to others.

    On top of all of the good advice given thus far, I'd like to add, don't try to be a know it all, and don't try to engage everyone into a debate.

    There's nothing more annoying and respect killing than having a bad attitude and being argumentative.

    There's a couple more don'ts for you.

      Completely disagree, if anything you are 100% wrong and the only way to build a rep is to yell at people, make personal attacks, say why they are wrong even though they might be right and losing face is never an option.

        I have to disagree with you 100 percent! That is actually a perfect way to build a reputation!

        A reputation of being someone I roll my eyes at and avoid doing business with at all costs, that is.

    Hi rtekmould,

    I noticed that as of this writing, all of your posts are irrelevant and are obvious tactics of those who are trying to raise their post count to spam us here. We are here to guide you, fellow Warrior. Just in case you haven't been informed yet that this may lead to you getting banned, we're letting you know now.

    You have posted all these. What helpful stuff can we all get from these?

    DON'T KNOW.........
    YEAH, THAT'S TRUE.........
    THANKS FOR THE INFORMATION.
    Thank You..........
    Thanks guys. But i need more information about that. Will you help me in this????
    Sorry, i don't know about that........
    Thanks for the information everyone.........
    Sorry, i can't say anything about that..........
    Yeah, that's right. Travel is a good to enter in market.......

    If you need help about specific things, feel free to post and let us know. We're happy to help you but don't post in this manner as it won't do you any good.

    Again, we're here to help you out.

      Here's my list:
      1. Read ALL of the rules in the sticky notes.
      2. Practice proper spelling & grammar and proofread all of your posts.
      3. Only post on two occasions: a) There's a question you need answered and you can't find it with the search button or b) You actually know the answer and aren't posting complete BS to make yourself sound better.
      4. Don't post one-liners. Ever.
      5. Try your best never to argue. The words here are etched in stone and people will still see them in 10 years, long after the argument has been forgotten about.

        It's not necessarily a newbie thing

        some of the least respectful marketers are those who have been around for an age

        newbies haven't created a whole blackhat industry or hyped IM beyond belief or made the association between IM and spam almost automatic in some of the wider populations minds or given this industry a slightly blemished name

        the truth is however that different people respect different things, they look at success, at the numbers, at cold hard cash

        Personally I respect far more a genuine marketer who is slowly building up authority sites and developing a good relationship with his list, not hyping his products/services to the heavens, not offering multiple upsells and OTOs, not making wild claims, not repackaging existing stuff, not just chasing the buck - this guy might not be earning as much as the guy who is doing all of the above but s/he has far more respect in my eyes

    Respect is relative (obviously). The WORST type of people are those who feel like everyone on the forum should respect them just because a handful of people do. They might tell you how you need to post, while not realizing that most of their own posts are negative pessimistic garbage. I don't care who you are, if you don't first GIVE respect to people, you definitely shouldn't expect it in return.

    Some people belittle posts from newbies or they use sarcastic underhanded ways of insulting other members. They won't come straight out and say what they feel, because they know its ridiculous, but they still try to use sarcasm to cover it up.

    If you're going to say ANYTHING negative to someone just because you don't know them, have some balls and try being direct about it.

    Otherwise you just come off like a coward to me.

    So here are my rules for respect:

    1) You got to give to recieve.
    2) You need to have a certain type of humility to keep your mouth shut even when you think people care about your negative beliefs. Most people don't like negativity. I'd rather see a thread repeated 100 times in one day than see a single negative, overly-opinionated comment from anyone. So if you're going to come into threads just to drop that bs on others, why are you even going into those threads in the first place? Boggles my mind.
    3) Value. If you're not experienced on the technical side of marketing, maybe there are other things you ARE experienced at that can still help marketers.

    Example of this. Say a psychologist of 40 years came onto this forum. Maybe he said he was a newbie at marketing. You would actually see guys trying to degrade him if he made an unexperienced newbie thread about marketing (rather than help). They'd hassle him, try to insult him in a nondirect way, not realizing this person likely has more people experience than most marketers on this forum.

    So definitely avoid the gang mentality. Avoid being negative. Respect people just for the fact that they are people. Definitely don't use sarcasm if you have no idea how its damaging your reputation. There are people like me who may have wanted to buy your service a week ago, then saw you making negative/sarcastic comments all the time and decided they want nothing to do with you.

    HAVE MANNERS & BE POLITE. If you can't do that, then you shouldn't be in marketing.

    Don't be afraid to ask questions, but try to make sure that you post in the relevant thread category, and be respectful, even if you disagree with some people's advice, you don't have to take it, but you don't have to argue about it either. You can show your opinions openly when you are more known and when you have a point, but don't try to cause any hassles on here, act professional, don't spma, don't self-promote even subtly, contact people individually and start conversations if you want to, they won't bite. Some people may not like it, but as long as your only being friendly, what's the worst that can happen? Be yourself, try to think before you write questions or comments and try to expllain clearly what you are asking, so that people can help you better, don't just say 'how do I make money', or something like that. Hope this helps in some way. Stan Fields, The Blind Marketer.

    It's easy.

    Just don't spam and follow the rules.

    Also, don't repeat what everyone else has already said 100 times.

    Damn.


    Seriously, just post in your own voice. Don't pretend you're someone you're not as when you're found out, people will dislike you. If you like cracking jokes, crack jokes. If you're curious, ask questions (but search first ).

    As in life 99% is common sense, so just use your noggin.

    Read the rules and understand what's cool and whats not... Then just get involved on the threads and share thoughts/ideas/advice with your fellow Warriors.

    People appreciate members who are trying to help and you'll soon see your reputation rising (the number of Thanks you receive will increase)

    Just be yourself and get involved - that's the best advice I can give you

    Be polite, and thank people for helping you.

    If you have a question, make it as SPECIFIC as possible, and make the question clear in the title (different experts have different areas of specialisation, so why not make it EASY for them to help you!).

    If you really want to thank someone, join their list and/or buy their products

    if you truly want respect you'll need to go a lot deeper than simply abiding the rules and being polite.

    * you'll need to form constructive posts based on your knowledge and experience
    * help others where you can
    * be supportive of others ideas
    * post often

    i'm sure i've violated a few of these before though, lol
