One of the best things about sharing content online is being able to engage in a safe and welcoming community for everyone.
That's why we are introducing a community on Techloy.com where you can chat with other members, share knowledge and experiences, and share what content you enjoyed the most on the platform.
To help keep the community safe, constructive and fun, here are a few things for you to keep in mind.
We are building Techloy.com to be a safe and inviting community for everyone, so we expect that all members should be civil and respectful in their interactions.
Like any online platform, we're a group of people with a range of experiences and beliefs, many of which may differ from your own. Consider this a gift — interesting and challenging perspectives can open doors you didn't even know existed.
When you publish your first comment on Techloy.com, you'll be prompted to complete a member profile, with your name and expertise. You can also update this at any time.
Using your real name and sharing your expertise or lived experience helps give context to valuable discussions. Sharing these extra details alongside your comments shows the perspective from which you are joining the conversation.
A new post might prompt a dozen different types of responses, from a reader sharing a personal story to a newcomer asking for clarification.
In every instance, do your best to stay on topic, support your replies with the additional context or sources where appropriate, and focus on discussing the ideas presented.
- Link to trustworthy articles, reports, and sources to support your arguments.
- Only share links to your own content when it directly adds to the conversation. Please don't spam. Nobody likes spam. Nobody.
If you've contributed to the conversation and someone else replies to your thread, you'll be notified by email. You can choose to switch these emails off in your member account settings, under email preferences.
Constructive contributions are the best kind. If you have knowledge that places the topic of the post in a new light, or if you have feedback about the subject matter — it's best shared in a way that helps everyone feel like this is a space where new ideas are respected and valued.
With every comment you make, you add to the dialogue. Many people may read your words and use them to shape their ideas and feelings about a topic, event, or person. Employ that influence wisely. Move the collective conversation forward, and invite others to follow your lead.
As a member, you can help maintain a safe and inviting community by reporting any behaviour that goes against these guidelines.
If you see someone being rude, negative, hateful, divisive, or combative in the comments section, flag it. All you need to do is click the three dots next to the inappropriate comment and then click Report comment. These reports are taken seriously, and there's a zero-tolerance policy for abusive behaviour.
Be the 'you' online that you are in person
Most people are kind and well-intentioned humans. Although it may seem like the opposite is true on the internet at times, the reality is that people tend to follow the majority.
You can help keep the tone on Techloy.com friendly and fun if you lead the way with insightful, humane language. Please make Techloy.com a community where you want to spend time in.
Thank you for being a valued member, and see you in the comments!
