The Lotus Symphony discussion forums give people a place to meet, interact, and share ideas with each other. Our professional community works best when people follow a few standards.
Stay on topic
Each discussion forum has a focus. Be sure your comments fit within the guidelines of that forum. If you do not find an appropriate forum to express your thoughts, use the Feedback Forum to request a new area to meet your needs.
Keep your posts clean
When writing, keep it professional by avoiding vulgar and obscene language.
Avoid personal attacks
You are encouraged to respond to other postings and when appropriate, to take issue with their contents. In these cases, please express your disagreement with the views and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Do not resort to personal attacks, insults, abuse, or harassment.
Don't post commercial advertisements
These forums are not the place to post unsolicited advertisements for products. However, it is acceptable to recommend a third-party product as a solution for a stated problem.
IBM won't pre-announce products or features
On these public forums, you won't get a satisfying answer to questions like "when will feature X be available?" The best route is to discuss your needs with your salesperson. Under a nondisclosure agreement, you should be able to get the info you need.
Our community is most useful when more people get involved. So post your thoughts! Read for a while, and then jump in. Don't ever worry about communicating too much. However, if you prefer to read without joining in, that's OK too; we'd rather have you lurk and listen than not be involved at all.
We welcome your ideas on how to improve our evolving community. Please share your thoughts by posting online in the Feedback forum. Every contribution is valuable and appreciated.
