These forums are a place to discuss F# related topics for the entire F# community.
Please treat others with respect, assume good intentions, and if you see something wrong, you can flag it for our attention or email us to let us know. Here are some specific guidelines to keep in mind when interacting with others in our forums:
- Be Respectful: You shouldn’t talk to anyone here in a way that you wouldn’t talk to someone in person, including a boss or new colleague. Always conduct yourself in a respectful manner.
- Be welcoming and patient: Remember that everyone here is generously donating their time. Assume that every discussion, question and answer is posted with good intentions. Treat others with the same respect you’d want them to treat you because we’re all here to learn, together. Be patient with others who may not know everything you know, and bring your sense of humor.
- Focus on the post, not the person: Keep it professional, and avoid criticism of the author, (as opposed to the post). Don’t make assumptions about a user’s identity, and avoid references to demographics unless they are an essential part of the question or answer. Refrain from name-calling and other ad-hominem attacks.
- Choose your words carefully: Expletives are generally not allowed; don’t be vulgar. Think before posting an inflammatory remark, even as a joke: if it isn’t appropriate at work or home, it is not appropriate here.
- Be civil: Attacking or harassing individuals based on gender, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity, political orientation, age, race, or religion – and any and all other types of personal attack – is unacceptable. Sexually suggestive language, imagery, and attention are not appropriate anywhere.
When posting, please:
- Categorize Your Post: Please post in the appropriate Category. Most posts should be in General, though anything related to the F# Software Foundation directly belongs in Foundation.
- Tag Your Post: Popular tags for many subjects (such as beginner, web, mobile, compiler, language design, and more) are setup. Please tag your post appropriately.
