Default The Ten Commandments of being a forum member - Unofficial

Disclaimer : I am not a mod/owner/admin .. This is merely personal opinion


1- Thou shalt ask nicely, and shalt get thyself the answers. Thou shalt not complain about people not answering in due time.

2- Flooding the forum with the same question in all possible threads will not get you a faster response, actually, it will piss people off

3- Search feature is your best friend. Use it. It could even save you some time and get you an answer faster

4- DIBP is smarter than you and all of us. Do not come asking how you can deceive them

5- Everyone - myself included - are/were panicking over their grant and losing patience while waiting, but it doesn't mean you post a zillion posts about where is my grant/CO/etc. when you only lodged last week. It pisses off those who have been waiting for months or even years .......

6- Google is your second best friend. Along with ACS/EA/DIBP/whatever website, asking very basic questions that you could find out yourself in a minute or two is really irritating. Ask only when you can't find an answer, or not sure it is the right answer

7- "Senior only" or "experts only" should reply ...... This is yet another impropriety ...... You want an expert opinion, feel free to look up one near you in MARA website, but expect to pay them for their services

8- Again, questions like "how can I claim experience that is - in reality - irrelevant" , or "can I sign my own letters of reference with my pen name" ....... will draw nothing but CONTEMPT. No one here advocates fraud ....

9- Research Research Research ...... Can't stress more on it

10- Last but not least. Karma is a real b***h. Beware of it

beautiful...... what irritates me the most is people asking for whole procedures from scratch without even hitting search button in the forum or even in the google.... i love you expatriate for how you have volunteered yourself to help other members...

Great work Expatriate!

What really amuses me, once somebody has tried to answer a question!

They look for constant reassurance by asking
'ARE YOU SURE CO WILL ACCEPT THIS DOCUMENT? ... and I will be granted the visa!'

This is the golden question, in pursuit of the golden email.

Bonus Commandment

11- Use meaningful subject lines for your posts. "Question" or "Urgent" or "Question about Australian Immigration" will not really get you many responses.

One more:

Do not name a new thread as "Urgent" or "Need Help" etc. It should be clear and precise and reflect the actual problem or question.
