Please treat this discussion forum with respect. This is a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.
 

These are not strict rules, merely guidelines to help keep this a clean and transparent place for civilised public discourse.

 

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.
 

The topics discussed here matter to Keysoft Solutions, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
 

One way to improve the discussion is by discovering ones that are already happening. Spend time browsing the topics here before replying or starting your own, and you’ll have a better chance of meeting others who share your interests.
 

Discourse provides tools that enable the community to collectively identify the best (and worst) contributions: bookmarks, likes, flags, replies, edits, and so forth. Use these tools to improve your own experience, and everyone else’s, too.

 

Be Agreeable, Even When You Don’t Agree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That is fine, but remember to criticise ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Personal attack
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction
 

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

 

See a Problem? Flag it!

Our moderators have special authority; they are responsible for this forum. But so are you. With your help, moderators can be community facilitators, not police.
 

When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just flag it. If enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.
 

Moderators reserve the right to remove any content and any user account for any reason at any time. Moderators do not preview new posts; the moderators and site operators take no responsibility for any content posted by the community.

 

Respect Others

Nothing sabotages a healthy conversation like rudeness:

  • Be civil. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech
  • Keep it clean. Don’t post anything obscene or sexually explicit.
  • Respect each other. Do not harass anyone, impersonate people, or expose their private information.
  • Respect our forum. Don’t post spam or otherwise vandalise the forum.
 

This is a public forum, and search engines index these discussions. Keep the language, links, and images safe for all ages.

 

Keep It Tidy

Make the effort to put things in the right place, so that we can spend more time discussing and less cleaning up. So:

  • Don’t start a topic in the wrong category.
  • Don’t cross-post the same thing in multiple topics.
  • Don’t post no-content replies.
  • Don’t divert a topic by changing it midstream.
  • Don’t sign your posts — every post has your profile information attached to it.
 

Rather than posting “+1” or “Agreed”, use the Like button. Rather than taking an existing topic in a radically different direction, use Reply as a Linked Topic.

 

Consider Copyright

You may not post anything digital that belongs to someone else without permission. You may not post descriptions of, links to, or methods for stealing someone’s intellectual property (software, video, audio, images), or for breaking any other law.
