Rule 1. Be constructive and not negative
It’s easier to say you don’t like something, and sometimes it can be justified. On the other hand, it is more valuable to say how you could improve it, real value is added when you can specify what is wrong and how to embellish it.
Rule 2. Experience wins
Other readers care much more about your opinion if it comes from relevant experience. If you know the history of a particular vehicle, or a lot about the particular make or model, you’re much more likely to be interesting.
Rule 3. Talk about cars, not others
Everyone has the right to have an opinion, even if you don’t agree with it. Criticisms of the character, taste or general nature of other members have no place.
Rule 4. The market sets the price
Piston Addict is a free market where the seller and buyer determine the price, so saying something is too expensive or too cheap means nothing at all. An item is worth what someone is willing to pay.
Rule 5. If you haven’t read all the rest of the comments, you’re not ready to leave yours.
