Why commenting is not allowed on the rules page.

Post by Pragya Gupta » Mon Jul 25, 2016 2:00 pm

Hi,

I was reading the rules defined on this link rules and wanted to ask a question on the avatar. How can I do such follow up when there is no comment facility allowed on that page?

How do I make sure that my avatar has this - "Avatars should be no larger than 120x120 pixels and should not exceed 20KiB in size."??

replying to the question in the title ...
because the founder/owner of the forum set the rules, and You just have to accept them.

how to find out the <resolution> of a pixel image and its size is a question that should be asked in the PC section of the forum
and is in no way related to the rules logic


cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)

Hi,

The commenting is not allowed to avoid the unnecessary clutter and for that matter that's not a blog post where users would usually want to leave some remark/s. Think about a "Rules Page" having a long discussion underneath, what would you chose as a rule -- the set-rules or the follow-up comments on them? Over the time , unless the comments are regularly monitored and deleted, they can add a lot of misleading discussion.

On the other hand, You can always start a follow up post in the "Suggestions & Feedback : About the Forum" part of the Forum or in other section to follow up on a specific rule, as Enrico has indicated.

Also, if you look carefully on the Rules Page, you'll see that there are anchor points (#) given to highlight a given rule. That brings the attention directly to the rule-in-question. For example, you could mention about your question like this:

Looking at this rule Avatars should be no larger than 120x120 pixels and should not exceed 20KiB in size. # - how do I make sure this is followed?

Said that, please start a topic on this Suggestions & Feedback : About the Forum or in Personal Computers - Mainframe related tools and some one will be around with an answer.


Thanks,
Anuj
