  • Forum Engagement and Conduct

    Posted by Melissa Robaina on March 24, 2023 at 12:51 pm

    Our forum functions at its best when community members treat each other with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that follow the rules of conduct below. Please note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive and may not address all manners of offensive behavior.

    BE KIND AND COURTEOUS. We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

    NO HATE SPEECH OR BULLYING. Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or identity will not be tolerated. Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited.

    RESPECT EVERYONE’S PRIVACY. Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private; we ask that these discussions remain private and stay within the forum.

    SHARE USEFUL AND FACTUAL INFORMATION. This group supports useful and actionable information and is a place for members to share insights, resources, and experiences. Do not post copyright-infringing material unless it is owned by you.

    ENGAGE AND BE SOCIAL. The more you give to an online community, the more you get back. We invite you to share what you’re working on, ask questions, provide answers, and encourage one another.

    NO PROMOTIONS OR SPAM. To preserve the integrity of this forum’s content, self-promotion, spam, and irrelevant links are not allowed in the general discussion forum. Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users. We created a dedicated promotional thread titled, Purposeful Promotion, to allow members of this community to share links to their offerings and services. Items posted to this thread must be relevant and purposeful to The Center for Appreciative Inquiry’s learning community (i.e., strength-based books, events, products, articles, etc.). Promotional posts shared outside of the Purposeful Promotion thread will be deleted. Members are limited to one post in this thread per week.

    CONTACT THE CENTER FOR APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY. If you see a person breaking any of the guidelines, do not attempt to moderate. Please contact The Center for Appreciative Inquiry (CAI) and let them know as soon as possible so appropriate measures can be taken.

    Please open and read the attached PDF titled, Online Forum Engagement and Conduct Guidelines, before participating in this forum. We look forward to learning and growing together!
