We are here to help
If you are new to the community and have any questions, just ask. The moderators and other participants are always happy to help.
Be a valued member of your community
We focus on being helpful to one another and discuss information that is beneficial to other members of the community. Provide insight that warrants good feedback. Before posting, consider whether the material is both appropriate and relevant. Moreover, avoid posting the same question in multiple discussions. Try to identify the best place for your question and post it there. If in doubt, ask. Multiple postings create confusion among fellow members and to the community moderators, who remove them. Additionally, they are difficult for you, the poster, to track.
