Forum rules & guidelines

  • Please use professional language. - Swearing, obscenities, and hate speech will be removed when reported.  Posts and responses containing such speech will be CENSORED and/or removed from the website.  Be aware that if a Subject/Question is deemed inappropriate, the post and all responses to it will be removed from the site.

  • Please be specific. - You will be more likely to receive a quick, helpful answer if you provide as much specificity as possible.  It also helps to indicate what efforts you have made to answer the question yourself (resources consulted, searches performed, etc.) so that other Codapedists don't waste their time re-doing your efforts.

  • Please be patient. - Some answers may take a few days of research (an invaluable gift to you).  And not all of our expert Codapedists are online at all hours.

  • Please be kind. - "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar."  Remember the Codapedists are volunteering their time and skills to help you.  If you don't like or understand their response to your question, please be polite (and specific) in your follow-up questions.  Posting a "thank you" reply is strongly recommended.  Up-voting a topic or response is also a great way of showing your appreciation to our hard-working Codapedists.

  • Please post questions/comments not ads. - If you have a product or service to promote we'd be happy to review your product/service and post information about it in the Community's Businesses and Services page - including links to your website.  Contact us about posting information about your product/service.  You may mention and describe your product/service on your profile page, but URLs will not be linked.

  • Please add URLs/links to your posts and comments. - Feel free to include URLs/links in your posts and comments but keep in mind the following two rules:

    1. URLs/links must start with "http://" or "https://" so that our system will recognize them.
    2. Only websites on our Allowed Websites list will be turned into hyper-links (active, clickable links vs. just text).

    Links to web pages and resources on the web are often very helpful for others.  Spam or inappropriate links in posts or comments may cause the post or comment to be removed from the site.
