-When reading texts
+<P>When reading texts quickly it is often very easy to misunderstand what the
+ author was trying to say.</P>
+<P>To avoid misunderstanding, read texts carefully and try to see the words
+ from the author's point of view. Be empathic.</P>

+<P>It can also help to think of what the author has NOT said - this may

-<P>When writing new posts
+(this is a draft help file, please do not translate yet)
+<P>When writing text for others to read, keep your audience in mind.</P>
+
+<P>Explain your ideas as clearly as you can to help avoid misunderstandings.
+ In the forums you can achieve this by keeping your posts short and on-topic,
+ instead of one long rambling post that makes many points, it is usually
+ better to write several shorter ones (perhaps in separate forums).</P>
+
+<P>Re-edit your text as much as necessary until you get it right.
+ Even in forum posts you have <?PHP echo ($CFG->maxeditingtime/60) ?> minutes
+ after you've posted it to go back and improve it if necessary.</P>
+
+<P>When replying to others, try and think of interesting questions you
+ can ask them. This will help both you and them think about the
+ issue at hand.</P>
