How to remain calm and cool on Bitcointalk ? I have seen that sometimes things get heated up between members and then we see a lot of hate. This results in waste of lot of time and energy which could have spent in constructive activities on this forum.

Now this forum also has a lot of experienced members and I thought that it would be beneficial for us to hear about how they keep calm on this forum.

That`s quite simple: do not take things too personally. There are some people here really suffering from some contrarious quotes. This is a huge site with a lot of minds, so do not take anything too personally or too serious. That`s, for me, the magic formula  Cool

And also always listen to JC jajaja

Those mainly happened in merit-crying and spammers, shitposters related topics. Stay away from them.

That's it, @Jet Cash.

Something more:
1) Stay away from non-sense discussions, which mostly started by account farmers, shitty posters. They tend to use one of their accounts to create new topic, then using other accounts to make a pseudo-, non-sense discussions.
2) Don't fall into quick judgements on projects, exchanges, forum users without clearly, strongly evidence.
3) Should be as neutral as possible in any discussions.

I will provide some reasons why there are always a war between members (usually to Mods and members) and you should avoid these reasons.
1. Spamming - This is the first reason why members can't understand each other its because there are members who are cleaning the forum from spammers but these spammers are not stopping what they were doing. Without unity between spammers and good members, as long as these spammers are not quitting spamming the forum, the war will never end.
2. Creating threads repeatedly (mostly about Merit) - I've noticed that once some noob creates a new thread asking what is Merits etc, an argument will start between OP and the member who replied with it. The lesson I'm telling you here is "Do not create thread/topic if it is already discussed/created before. If you're unsure if the topic already exist, try to use the SEARCH function of the forum".
3. Merit beggars - Mods really hates merit beggars, so if you're planning to be one, it's better to stop your plan immediately.
4. Asking "why I can't receive Merits?"  - If you're a spammer or twitbook bounty report spammer with almost all post are links to facebook, twitter etc. Don't expect that you will receive any Merits. Making a thread asking why you can't receive merit will only make Mods activate their "Beast" mode. I'm afraid that also some members who will get annoyed to the thread.
5. Spamming Meta Section - there are several members here who really hates when spammers spammed Meta section (include me and seoincorporation). Meta is one of the remaining section who had good discussions and we won't let spammers just wander around and spam.
6. Asking obvious questions - it's obvious that this should be avoided.
7. Violating forum rules then complaining about the reason they get banned - If you knew that you violated a rule like plagiarism, etc. Then don't ask why you get banned. It's pretty obvious. You will just annoy Moderators.

Also I noticed this..
8. Applying for campaigns without reading the rules.
9. Posting "Good projects, interesting project"  Cheesy
10. Etc....

I forgot to mention the most important thing.

Use the ignore feature. It is quite amazing how much the forum improves once you have got a few hundred spalluters ( spamming polluters of the boards) in your ignore list.

Adding shitty posters into Ignore List is a good solution, but it is only one of solutions for this issue.
Beside that, using the following things might help:
  • Don't show users' avatars.
    Don't show users' signatures.
    Ignore Boards Preferences
These features help to reduce annoying, uncomfortable feelings automatically pop-up with shitty threads, which widely shown off in the forum.

A few signatures are useful.

Ignoring a member means that both his signature and avatar will be ignored as well. It's a fact that bounty managers should consider when they are monitoring their spolluters.

Man, this is the forum and all psychologists will tell you that it is much more easier to represent your opinion and emotions (negative as well) when it is not in person. Who knows what kind of individuals are hiding behind this haters from the forum?! II guess not everyone of them is the same in real life  Roll Eyes

In a nutshell, the OP author raised un-necessary question. Additionally, it is personal problem with each forum member, and we all can certainly not have relevant answers for each case.

Each forum user has different emotional characteristics, and should find the most relevant wait to keep calm and cool (might be a unique approach) in the forum by themselves, for themselves.

I agree with this 100%.  This forum is a pretty harsh place with a lot of criticism, but ultimately it's just an internet forum and it shouldn't provoke strong emotional responses--not that emotionally charged posts can't be made, but that the person behind the keyboard shouldn't get furious or despondent because of something written here.

There was one time a couple years ago when I got really pissed off because I felt like I was getting attacked here.  Can't even remember what it was all about, and at this point I don't care.  I had to take a step back, a breath, and a few days' break from bitcointalk.

Hell, I just got a death threat because of a feedback I left.  You just have to roll with these things.

Are there features in place now, that can enable a user to not see the signature worn by another user or not to see his/her avatar?

Yes.

1. Go to: Profile -> Look and Layout Preferences;
2. Checkmark "Don't show users' avatars" and/or "Don't show users' signatures";

I don't. It's bad for my blood pressure to keep it all bottled up. I feel a lot better after a good virtual yelling.

Don't take things so seriously. How do you remain calm and cool in real life when someone says something you don't like? Either way, it's much easier online. There's no threat of violence and you can compose yourself before every word. You're behind a computer screen that protects you, but obviously this can turn even cowards into thinking they're invincible gobshites, but they're only words at the end of the day. If somebody says something that enrages you then maybe don't comment on it. Ignore it and it can't hurt or annoy you. If you engage and let their words effect you then it's on you and something that could have easily have been avoided. Just don't engage in something if you know it's going to descend into something that is going to negatively effect you and take up a considerable amount of your time. Use the ignore feature if you want to not be able to see certain people's posts that you know are going to annoy you.

If senior members say some hard words to the new members for their poor post quality,then members should take it positively.  Don't take these words on their ego.  All are to improve to share knowledge and make this forum good.
