Hello Forum users, This thread is not meant to offend anybody and is a simple, polite suggestion (mostly to the more experienced forum users) I have only been a member here for less than a week and I have found it more difficult than anticipated. I personally have not been offended really or attacked by any forum users but I have noticed many new users being berated for; creativity, punctuation and post responses as examples. I understand new users like myself can be irritating or not perfect when it comes to posting threads or comments on a topic, but could the critiquing be a little less harsh? The harsh critiquing makes people feel kind of unwelcome honestly. I guess my suggestion is for people to use constructive criticism against new users as it is far more helpful than just plain bombardment of insults and criticisms, please? Personally I am open to criticism if said in the correct manner, please tell me if my threads or posts are not good but instead of plain insulting, why not suggest how that individual could improve themselves?
