We have members from all over the world in this community, so remember this when having conversations with other members. Respect everyone’s differences, keep conversations in English, don’t assume anything, avoid politics and religion, and ask for clarification if you’re ever confused.
No personal attacks, ever. Debate is encouraged, but please be professional. Remember that your opinion is only an opinion, and others’ opinions are not necessarily wrong, they’re just different. Likewise, ask a member in a public channel for their permission before sending them a direct message. If you wouldn’t be comfortable saying it to a coworker in front of your Human Resources director, don’t say it here.
Members are more likely to answer your questions or help you if you’ve already shown your value to the group by sharing your expertise.
We have a self-promotion channel, so keep unsolicited self-promos there. If you think you have a product, event, or anything else that might be the answer to someone’s question, ask them if they’re interested before posting your link.
For starters, but not limited to:
When in doubt, ask a moderator for help, or check out these etiquette tips from Slack.

FastSpring tips, use questions, and other inquiries are welcome in the FastSpring channel, or via direct message to the moderators. Additionally, suggestions for product workarounds not supported by FastSpring are discouraged and may be removed.
If you don’t follow the above guidelines or continue to break the rules after repeated warnings, you will be removed from the community.
