Slack & Social Media Community Guidelines
Identify yourself by your name not a screen name. Be mindful of your personal safety, and avoid including personal information, such as phone numbers or addresses, in discussion forums. All online communications should be transmitted with the intent to inform and inspire, not to offend or breach personal privacy. Never use private information about other individuals and be sensitive to the information you share about yourself.
Write in the first person.
Use humor, joking, or sarcasm with caution. We often rely on non-verbal cues such as facial expressions to communicate joking or sarcasm; but these cues are not always clear in an online environment (or, for some of us, in person either).
Be professional, clear and respectful. Clear and effective writing translates to clear and effective communication. Writing the way you would speak is a good rule of thumb. Use a positive tone and adhere to the same rules you would follow in face-to-face communications.
Read and formulate communications carefully. Take the time to think about the information contained in your online communications. Re-read communications before sending to avoid emotional and/or "all capital letter" statements and keep communications meaningful and succinct.
Be tolerant and cooperative. Keep in mind that people are here for different purposes, and anyone can make a simple mistake in research, knowledge or communication. Address the idea or concept, not the person. Keep an open mind and focus on the goal of interpersonal communication. When adverse communications or conflicts arise, try to help rather than hinder. True cooperation means working together to the same end; everyone wants to be successful.
