Default Experience with forums.

I'm young, have a lot of maturing to do, and a long way to go in the realm of photography, and I'm trying to post more professional forum posts. I see the majority of well respected senior members have the links to their RP accounts as "here" and other various features of their postings that are way more professional in appearance than those posted by myself. Basically what I'm asking for is advice in more professional posts, and even things such as more sophisticated discriptions on my photos. On a side note, I'm getting better about the quality I post on RP..but I do have my share of embarrassments hidden in my account and have a tremendous distance to go. Any help on either topic is, as always, greatly appreciated!

One thing I'd suggest is that when you type something up, pause your thoughts, get up and get a snack or something. Come back and slowly read the post again before sending it. Another thing that causes me to roll my eyes are simple grammar errors and spelling. All in all, I think it's probably more important to be civil than it is to be "professional." Empathy goes a long way.
