Forum Etiquette

Some Forum Etiquette:
  • Be civil.
  • Be welcoming to new members.
  • Stay on topic. If you have something relevant but it might need a larger unrelated discussion then start it's own thread and link that in a comment instead.
  • Not everything is a personal attack directed at you. That might even include this list. You can decide.
  • Not everything needs to be defended.
  • Not everything needs a paragraph. Less is more.
  • Don't argue. You won't change any minds.
  • If you need to say something to a specific person consider using private messages.
If requesting help give all relevant information right away including, but not limited to:
  • Include the software product you are using. (Alibre Atom3D, Alibre Workshop, Alibre Design Professional, Alibre Design Expert, or specify something else)
  • Include the version of the software you are using. (V27 build 27039 for example)
  • Include the specific problem you are having or what you want to accomplish.
  • Include what (if anything) you have tried.

Any good ones I missed?

Hi Nat,
I see you are still using Alibre after all these years. It's my first time on here in, ages. It's nice to see a few familiar names still.


Senior Member
Thanks, Miles & Nate. Yes of course you can do that Nate. After all, I am just an observer you are the admin of this.

I saw a comment about this in another thread and I think we need a discussion on forum signature lengths. What is too long? Or too distracting? The previous forum software had a much shorter limit. Maybe this one needs adjusting?

I personally got sick of them and crafted a signature CSS override to shorten and blur using Stylus for Firefox. I can share if anyone wants it. And on smartphone I don't see signatures anyway unless I turn on desktop mode.


Forum signature lengths can indeed become distracting when they're too long. It's important to balance personal expression with readability and forum usability. Adjusting the limits could be beneficial for keeping discussions focused.
