How does the community work?
This community provides a place for community members or participants to search for information, read and post about topics of interest, and learn from each other. Depending on how the community is set up, you'll find:
- boards where you can post questions and answers
- blogs where you can read and comment on articles posted by bloggers from the company
- idea exchanges, where you can post your ideas about way to improve products and vote for ideas that other community members have posted
- and more...
Guests (unregistered visitors) can browse or search the entire community for information. Registered members can post messages or comments, track discussions, and get e-mail notifications on new posting activity.
What is my role in the community?
You are essential to the community, even if all you ever do is read messages or articles that someone else has posted. Communities like this one have a place for all kinds of contributions: posting questions and sharing answers, leaving comments on blog articles or ideas, voting for ideas you like, or just searching for answers to your questions.
We encourage you visit often and participate. Come with your toughest questions. Chances are someone has a solution or can point you in the right direction. If you find a solution that works, let others know, and pass on your own tips and insights. You might just have the answer someone else has been looking for!
Please remember to thank community members who have helped you. You can show your appreciation by giving kudos to helpful posts, by accepting a solution that answers your question, or by posting thank-you replies.
What is my responsibility in the community?
We want the community to be appropriate, friendly, informative, and fun for everyone.
Be sure to read the Community Terms of Service and the community's Rules and Guidelines so that you know what to expect and what is expected of you when you're here.
