Creators Community Guidelines

Creators is built for people who build Ning Networks. These guidelines, in conjunction with our Terms of Service, provide advice that we hope make Creators an interesting, safe, and productive place to have conversations about how to build, grow, and manage Ning Networks.


BE YOURSELF
Use a nickname or real name while here if possible. Be “Jane” and not “ACE DELIVERY SERVICES INC.” We love being on a first-name basis. 

CIVILITY RULES
If we want respect and civility to be the hallmarks of this community, we all have to strive to keep the feedback constructive.

STAY ON TARGET
Off-topic, out-of-context, drive-by, cross-posted comments make it hard to follow a conversation. We sometimes remove them to keep the conversation structured and meaningful.

WE TIDY UP
We move Forum discussions that look like they belong in a different category. We close duplicate discussions and point people to ongoing discussions about the same topic. We don’t intend to censor anyone, but we may remove a discussion or replies in a discussion if they’re causing confusion, are mean-spirited, or are otherwise inappropriate (e.g., language). In general, we do our best to tidy up and make things easier to find.

PROMOTERS GET DEMOTED
You have a great Ning Network! But this isn’t the place to solicit new members. Please refrain from including promotional links, whether in comments or as a signature.

ATTACKERS WILL NOT BE DEFENDED
It doesn’t happen very often, but we will remove people who harass other people. Personal attacks, insults, and unrelenting negativity won’t be tolerated on Creators.

NOBODY LIKES SPAM (EXCEPT SPAMMERS)
What is spam? Spam is a noun: unsolicited ads for products and services. Spam is a verb: posting the same message again and again to as many people as possible. Spam is a bad word. Don’t spam.

AGENDAS ARE ONLY GOOD FOR CONFERENCES
The Members of Creators are here to get & give feedback and seek & provide help to other Network Creators. Relentlessly promoting your own agenda is counter-productive to this spirit of collaboration. 

SOME THINGS ARE BETTER HANDLED PRIVATELY
Having a disagreement with another member? Unhappy with a response to your support ticket? Venting that in the public forums isn't appropriate. PM the Community Manager with any serious concerns.


Making this a safe, constructive place to exchange information is our top priority, and violating any of these guidelines may result in a suspension from Creators. It rarely comes to that, though. The most important thing we ask of you, our fellow Creators: Get involved! Tons of smart people help out here on Creators. Be one of them.
