In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as organizers and representatives of the M-Files Community pledge to making participation a pleasant experience for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, race, age, body size, disability, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Our Guidelines for Community Participation
The M-Files Community is an online place for people to come together, ask questions, share knowledge, gain valuable insights from peers, seek support, and provide feedback around M-Files products and services. We ask all users to keep this a safe and welcoming place by following these participation guidelines. We look forward to your active participation and engagement.
Members of the M-Files Community are expected to conduct themselves in line with these guidelines whenever interacting with M-Files employees, other M-Files Community members, or M-Files partners.
All users should do the following:
- Use welcoming and inclusive language.
- Ask thoughtful questions.
- Be respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences.
- Respect your own privacy and the privacy of others by prudently sharing information and adhering to all privacy laws.
- Respect any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual or proprietary right of others.
- Gracefully accept constructive criticism or responses that may not be what you were hoping for.
- Show empathy towards other M-Files Community members.
- Maintain focus on what is best for the M-Files Community as a whole.
- Understand that responses to forum posts are provided in an effort to help resolve user questions and issues with the M-Files product, and should not be interpreted as a guaranteed service.
- Review and test any community-provided code or script in a non-production environment before implementing more widely.
All users should refrain from the following:
- Using any type of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances.
- Trolling, insulting or derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks.
- Displaying any form of public or private harassment.
- Sharing any personal data you do not want publicly available, such as home address, phone number, credit card information, etc.
- Publishing others' personally identifiable information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission.
- Posting any information that violates any contractual agreements.
- Posting any copyrighted materials without the appropriate attribution or permission from the copyright owner or author.
- Engaging in or encouraging any other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting.
The above is for guidance only and should not be considered a complete list.
Our Right to Take Action
Organizers and representatives of the M-Files Community have the right to proactively or retroactively administer any submissions (e.g. message board posts, online comments, code submissions, wiki edits, issues, and other such contributions) that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct or other terms and conditions for the Service, or to ban temporarily or permanently any member for other behaviors that they deem threatening, offensive, harmful, or otherwise inappropriate.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by clicking "report as abusive" or contacting the Global Community Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. All complaints of abuse will be reviewed and investigated and may result in an action that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The M-Files Community team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with respect to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
