Forum Rules and Code of Conduct

edited February 2014 in General
Code of Conduct
Electric Imp is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender presentation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any time. Participants violating these rules may be expelled from the group at the discretion of the organizers.

Harassment includes offensive comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual image, deliberate intimidation, sustained disruption, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately.

Posting Guidelines
In addition to the code of conduct, we ask that you take note of the following guidelines to ensure all members have an enjoyable, and useful experience on the Electric Imp Forums:

  • We welcome all of your questions, but encourage you to check the Dev Center and search the forums before posting a new topic.

  • Please keep conversations on topic, and where possible, in the appropriate category (posts in inappropriate categories may be moved).

  • Spam posts, including irrelevant links, will be deleted.

  • As this is a public forum, we remind you to not share personal information you do not want the world to know, e.g. credit card and phone numbers, email addresses, Agent URLs, etc.

Code Sharing Guidelines
We encourage imp users to share thoughts, ideas, creations, and, of course, their code with each other as we all embark on this exploratory impish adventure together. That being said, please follow the below guidelines for posting and/or sharing code:

  • Use others' code at your own risk. Electric Imp will not assume any responsibility for the result of any and all code sharing via this forum. Please be sure that you trust or appropriately vet the source of the code you are using.

  • If you are posting code directly in your post, please wrap it in a code tag (the 'C' button in the post editor will do this for you):
    <code>
    // some code
    function aFunction() {
        // does a thing
    }
    </code>

  • We encourage you to use GitHub and Gists for longer code examples.
