Community Guidelines

For the Community to remain a safe, welcoming and fun place, users are must adhere to the following Community Guidelines and best practices. The guidelines below align with Microsoft’s Community Code of Conduct.
 
Do:

  • Be polite and respectful in all posts and replies to other people.
  • Keep conversation threads on track. It's okay to disagree with another user's post, but keep your dialogue relevant to the post subject.
  • Always address comments and responses to the original post owner.
  • Cite the source of any unoriginal content in your posts. Be honest about your sources.
  • Report any kind of abuse you find in the community. "Report abuse" links can be found in every post and in every profile.
  • Search to see if a question you'd like answered has already been posted by somebody else. Posting the same question repeatedly and starting multiple threads on the same subject can be confusing.
  • Encourage others to join the community!

Don’t:

  • Share or post your personal contact information (email, phone number, etc.) in any of the community forums. 
  • Divert or change a thread for your own purposes; just start a new thread with the subject you want to discuss.
  • Post questions/messages that are the same or similar to questions you have already posted. When someone has an answer or a reply, that person will respond to you.
  • Threaten, stalk, insult, victimize or intimidate anyone or any group of people for any reason; including age, gender, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race or religion.
  • Incite other users to threaten, stalk, insult, victimize, or intimidate another person or group of people.
  • Use vulgar, obscene and inappropriate language.
  • Harass, insult, tease, or correct other users about the grammar used in their posts. Good or bad grammar isn't the point-the community is about getting questions answered and technical discussions.
  • Post content depicting nudity of any sort, including full or partial photographic human nudity, or nudity in cartoons, fantasy art or manga.
  • Upload chain letters.
  • Share websites that require payment to access information.
