I personally think the best way to use humor or express emotions/feelings (works on other sites) is to use emoticons to express your feelings.

ie allright Dragonpop. quit hitting on the new girl, this is not Match.com ;)

Now I would add a "finger shaking one after dragonpop" or maybe

All right dragon pop [snickers and waves finger] now, now, quit hitting on the new girl, this is not match.com ;)

So many different ways adding j/k could work, I like using emoticons

I know this site lacks them, and I say make a thread in admin area, I can think of at least 5 that need to be standard

And I have also decided at times to just not make the joke....the above I would of done tho'

That last sentence could be taken as smartazznis adding a grin takes some weight off it though

Funny pictures and memes can do that too... If used carefully.

It always seem clear when someone is joking, but some people always find a way to take it the wrong way. I don't understand that because there don't seem to be any inherently mean people on here. It it's over the line, it's most generally meant as a joke even if it didn't fly that way. Most of us raise the issue immediately if there seems to be mean things being said. Nobody wants any hard feelings here.
With that said, I don't like emoticons. It reminds me of communicating with my children. On the other hand it does signify your intent more clearly.

From a n00b prespective, I've been reading a lot of older threads, and you can almost see an "evolution in behavior".

I've also seen when someone was accused of being "temperamental" by someone else...however, when reading the posts, all looked OK to me.

What i'm trying to say is writing something on a forum, email, IM, sms can be taken out of context and interpreted different ways by different people; that's why i try always to post following at least two rules:
1. KISS - keep it stupid-simple
2. use emojis to convey particular emotions

when i read replies, i always read it multiple times if unclear and before jumping to conclusions.
Now back to *cough* i mean....work...

Well said everyone.

With this large and diverse a group spread all across the continent, and further, there are bound to be disagreements at times. Maybe we do get to comfortable with speaking our minds sometimes. I don't think humor is the problem most of the time, although with this faceless interface of personalities it's easy to take something the wrong way. Most disagreements about builds are clarified and resolved quickly. Disagreements about religion or other subjects don't belong under this subject matter.

You folks on here are great about sharing knowledge. Everyone appreciates the learning opportunity, especially from you experts.

Winlock, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Your advise is sought after again and again. Thank you for sharing and getting most of us back on track. I appreciate that you and other experts take the time to respond to the rest of us wannabees. And yes, some great ideas even from noobs.

There will always be a certain amount of discourse in a group this large and diverse. They haven't overcome that problem in the military after years and years. There does have to be a certain level of respect for what other people are doing regardless of how they choose to do it.

All of you are right.

I came here to see if I wanted to get a "schoolie", I do. I've been quietly looking around reading about some o of the conversions, and I gotta say I feel pretty small when I see what some have done. But, love the progress that some have made. It's a wonder to me that folks can be so annal about detail and still function in this world. If, and when, I can do a bus, I want to be as good as some of you are. ....but it probably won't happen. I do appreciate the information provided by everyone here and I mean everyone. I'll try and mind my own business and not be judgemental of anyone else. I do think this is great forum and you are all great people.
