Our Community Tips

Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Create your account - If you haven’t yet, create your free account with the blue button at the top-right. Make sure your username is easy to read and type. Forum members can mention each other in posts like on Twitter. For example: ‘Hi @hydn’.

  2. Review our community guidelines, terms of service and privacy policy. - This is a welcoming, inclusive community. The FAQ/Guidelines are very useful for learning how this forum and community work. In particular, if you see a post that you feel breaches the spirit of this community, flag it. Flags will alert moderators to the issue and enough flags will automatically hide the post for further review.

  3. Participate - Initially you’ll have limited powers with your account, but as you read and post to the forum, you’ll gradually be able to do things like:

  • invite colleagues to join, even with specific topic threads,
  • send private messages directly to other forum members,
  • edit wiki posts,
  • include images and unlimited links in posts,
  • flag posts,
  • and even help maintain the forum by re-categorizing and renaming posts.
