First and foremost 10 Tenths is a discussion forum – be aware that not everyone will agree with your viewpoint – that doesn’t make it wrong or right – just different.
No team or driver in F1 is above criticism – there is a line between not agreeing a viewpoint and bashing for the sake of it – please remember where the line is.
We encourage criticism of any parties involved in F1, as long as it is reasoned and isn't posted with malice or an agenda.
Accept other members' viewpoints gracefully and in the spirit they are offered.
Please take time to read other members' posts and appreciate their overall meaning, rather than seizing on a minor point and using that to discredit the rest of the post. On top of this many are attacked over a small point, when the gist of the whole means something else!
For new members, enter the forum as you would enter a room full of people you’ve never met – would you kick the door down and throw out inflammatory remarks within the first few seconds of meeting people, or would you poke your head around the door, get to know people and then chat to people with the some of the same opinions?
As mods it’s our job to keep the conversation flowing, (hopefully) post things of interest ourselves and keep the forum humming along nicely, letting discussion thrive and develop. This is harder to do if two parties form such entrenched positions that there is no room for debate. Please bear this in mind.
Don’t be over sensitive to criticism of your favoured team or driver.
Do treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.
Do remember this is a discussion site for F1 as a whole, not a fan appreciation society for any particular teams or drivers.
If the topic becomes too ‘hot’ for you – don’t inflame it further – walk away and let the mods decide on appropriate action.
Most of all enjoy posting and reading other people’s thoughts.
The F1 Mod Team.
