Re: The rules of the road!

Respected Contributor

The rules of the road!

Welcome to the Partner Ready Certification & Learning community. Please take a moment to read our community rules.

  1. Be respectful. Respect your fellow users by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive. Good or bad, your experiences are always welcome as long as you offer them in a courteous manner. Respect people's time and attention by providing complete information about your question or problem, including product name and model number. People like helping those who ask good questions.
  2. Be relevant. Make sure your contributions are relevant to this forum and to the specific category or board where you post. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Solicitations inviting members to join, participate, or buy something are never relevant.
  3. Obey the law and keep your word. Don't post anything that would violate any law, or any contractual agreement that you have made.
  4. Protect privacy - yours and others'. Don't share anything about yourself that you would not want to see on a road-side billboard. Don't post contact or other personal information, your own or anyone else's, or any content that you receive in one-to-one communications without the author's consent. For example, don’t post your computer’s serial # or contact information publicly, and do not allow someone you do not know to take control of your computer remotely.
  5. Remember this is user-generated content. You will find plenty of good advice here, but remember that your situation, configuration, or use may vary from that of the individual sharing a solution. Some advice you find here may even be wrong. Apply the same good judgment here that you would apply to information anywhere on the Internet.
  6. Think before you post: You may not use, or allow others to use, your registration membership to post or transmit the following text or images:
  • "Rants," "slams", or legal threats against HPE, another company or any person.
  • Political statements, images or commentary.
  • Discriminatory statements, images or commentary based on a person’s race/color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical/mental disability, veteran status, genetic information or citizenship.
  • Off-topic comments not related to a technical or usage issue regarding an HPE product.
  • Language or images that promote illegal activity or use of an illegal substance or discusses such activities or substances with the intent to commit or use them.
  • Duplicate posts.
  • Hyperlinks that lead to sites that violate any of the forum guidelines.
  • Advertisements or requests to sell or market products or services provided or rendered by you or any other person or entity with whom you are affiliated, or for personal monetary gain, reward or any other compensation.
  1. Do no harm. You may not interfere in any way with the operations in the forum or with a fellow user's message box, including, but not limited to, mail or "post" bombing, news bombing, other flooding techniques, deliberate attempts to overload a system, broadcast attacks, or attempts to avoid messaging blocking.
  2. Do not artificially inflate forum statistics. There are several statistics in place in the forum that are used to measure performance and overall health of the community. You may not purposely attempt to inflate a particular statistic to promote yourself in the community. For example, creating a duplicate account to acquire more kudos.
  3. Cooperate with site moderators and administrators. You may not evade bans or suspensions or otherwise disregard directions from HPE Support Forum moderators or administrators. If you are banned from one HPE Support Forum, you may not participate in another. For example, if you are banned from the English forum you are also banned from participating in the French or German forum.
  4. If you are an HPE employee, you must identify yourself as one. You must always be clear that you speak for yourself only and not for HPE, and follow HPE policy.

Finally, links or posts about dump sites or dump exams will be deleted, and the user will be warned. Two warnings will result in a ban from the community.

Thank you,
