    General Rules

    Before posting, replying or creating a new discussion topic make sure you follow certain basic rules and keep discipline on the community discussion forums.

    • Keep your posts clean: Many of us participate from work, so keep the language clean.
    • Don’t be a jerk: Treat people with respect and consideration – no regional, racial, gender or other abuse will be tolerated.
    • Be helpful: Be patient with new people and be willing to jump in to answer questions.
    • Stay calm: The written word is always subject to interpretation, so give people the benefit of the doubt and try not to let emotions get out of control.
    • Don’t post chunks: Avoid posting big chunks of text – use pastebin or a similar service to shorten it to a link.
    • Be Patient: People might not be around when you ask a question, so please wait for an answer.
    • Don’t create duplicate new topics: Before posting a new topic in a discussion forum, please check if your question has not been already posted.
