Forums are moderated
whether they be questions or answers, must be approved by moderators before they
are posted publicly. If your submission is declined for some reason, you
will receive an emailed notification. Most submissions are accepted, so we
do not email acceptance notices.
What we are looking for:
In general, we accept audio related discussions that are of interest to
visitors of this site. Here are some qualifications of the types of posts
we will accept:
- Audio, video, or music
related topics only.
- Questions of interest to a
variety of readers.
- Topics that will be relevant
for several months to years..
- Questions that provide
enough information for others to be able to answer.
- Well written, in-depth
answers based upon personal experience.
What we will decline:
We hope to decline
very few submissions, but we refuse to post statements that take away from the
usefulness of these forums. Here are some examples of the types of posts that
will be rejected most of the time:
- Questions that you can answer
for yourself by searching the previous answers, or by following a known web
link, or by reading the manual.
- Questions that only you can
answer, such as "Will that subwoofer have enough bass for me?"
- Questions with no answer, such
as "Is this amp any good?"
- Posts that do not give
sufficient information about your system, your experience, or your tastes.
- Posts that are off-topic or
- Posts that are obviously trying
to sell something.
- Posts that are condescending of
a person or their system.
- Posts about other members (as
opposed to their comments)
- Audiogon related questions or
comments (send via email instead).
- Spam, insults, excessive
profanity, racial/ethnic slurs, and trolls.
What are good questions?
provide enough background about your tastes and equipment, what you are hoping
to accomplish, and why your current system isn't doing it. Questions about
the adoption of a new technology, or the nuances of certain designs.
Questions about technical details that are not readily available or no longer
archived by the manufacturer.
What are good answers?
Answers that directly
benefit the person asking the question, but also benefit future visitors with
similar questions. Answers that describe the specific experiences that you
are using to draw the conclusions you are drawing. Answers that provide
technical details, including the source of these details. Posts that
encourage and educate new comers to this hobby.
