Nice idea for a thread, here are two things that jump to mind:
What not to do
Troll, be generally disrespectful or not at least be willing to listen to another persons point of view. You don't nescessarily have to agree with someone but it is possible to argue in a grown up manner, although I'm no saint myself
Posting new Topics Tip
I'm a little picky on this one and in all honesty it's the quality of posts/threads that count however personally I automatically disregard posts & threads with bad spelling and punctuation. It doesn't have to be the queens, perfect english but simple things like using capital letters correctly in thread titles makes all the difference for me.

How long do I have to edit one of my posts?
If you leave it too long, you will get a message saying that you have exceeded the "4 Hour" window for editing.
But this message is not telling the truth.
If you open the edit window shortly after posting, there is a little window above the edit box telling you that you have "x" minutes left to edit. But the countdown appears to start at 120 minutes. In the rest of the world, this is only two hours.
So don't think you can leave a post for three hours and then try to correct your spelling, because you can't.
Within your profile, click on the "Friends" link at the top.
The list of names down the left-hand side will now be people who have "friended" you, instead of the other way round.

My favorite new "toy," at the bottom ribbon where there is a link for "messages," there is a tab under messages for "replies" and you can see if anyone has replied to any of your posts! It is a great quick link if you only have a few minutes to respond to a conversation.
