Best Practices for New Threads on Here?

  • 1.  Best Practices for New Threads on Here?

    Posted 07-28-2020 06:24 PM
    As I have served as an ASCE Topic Moderator for the past year or so, I thought I would compile some best practices I have learned about threads I have personally seen to get more traffic.  These are to be used in conjunction with those shown in ASCE Collaborate's Code of Conduct: https://collaborate.asce.org/codeofconduct 

    Best Practices for ASCE Collaborate Discussions: 

    • Like an email, try to capture the essence of your thread in your subject line. 
    • Try to restrict your initial post to asking only 1-2 questions. Bolding the question(s) also helps for it to stand out. 
    • Questions seeking advice on a particular topic (i.e. How do you manage stress in the workplace?)  seem to do fairly well in engagement 
    • From personal experience, the best times to post are Sunday through Tuesday if possible. 

    What best practices have you found for posting new ASCE Collaborate threads?
