Recently a thread was locked by Richard Doyle, the forum moderator. He was right to do so. The post had severely veered off course, but that wasn’t the reason for locking it. It was locked because there were replies that were getting too political and apparently also too much poor language being used.
I am asking the good folks here to remember what this forum is for. This forum is generously provided for us by SolidWorks. They do not censor it like I have heard other companies do for the forum they provide. We, the SWX users, are free to come here and complain about the software, ask for help, share tips and tricks, request new features, etc. This forum is not intended to be an alternative to Facebook or other social media.
Though my own profile lists my occupation as Party Pooper , I do not want to throw cold water on the fun we have sharing in these topics and having some laughs at the same time. The purpose in writing this post is to provide a gentle reminder of what this forum is for and for us to be mindful of each other and our SWX host.
To that end I ask that anyone that posts a reply to any post keep in mind the following:
I feel like I have made some really good friends here on this forum, though I have yet to meet you in person. Some of you are across the street (for all I know) and some of you are halfway around the world. This forum is a great place to learn from and share with each other. Let's not pollute it with inane or inappropriate posts. Let's keep it lively, fun and helpful.
