Welcome to LEDVANCE Communities-You Deserve Better
Welcome to the Community if you’re new and if you’ve been here for a while we’d like to thank you for being a valued member. This is a place for all LEDVANCE community members to connect, share, and learn from others.
To help you make the most out of your Community experience we’ve prepared some guidelines for you. These rules are intended to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for engaging in discussions
Be friendly & understanding
Be patient and provide as many details as possible if you’re posting about a problem. Please keep all criticism constructive and respectful. Personal attacks and offensive language will not be tolerated.
- No Expletives - Cursing – Swearwords – Profanity.
- No threats, prejudiced comments, or hate speech.
- No sexually explicit language, or other content that is not appropriate for our community.
Improve the Discussion
Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.
Don’t forget to fill out your information including, but not limited to: your username, avatar, country and a short self-introduction. The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
- Explore the Community - Take a quick look around the different sections and learn how everything is organized.
- Search first - Before starting a new thread, try using Search to prevent the repetition of topics.
- Find your interests - Find threads that grab your attention and chat together with other fans.
Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree
You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. In fact, here on LEDVANCE, we encourage civilized debate and discussion. It makes us better writers!
If you do wish to express disagreement with someone on the forums, remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:
- Ad hominem attacks
- Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
- Knee-jerk contradiction
- Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
Please also avoid challenging someone’s right to have an opinion. No member of the community should have to defend their right to think differently.
However, that does not mean forum members are exempt from criticism of their arguments. It is your free speech to express your opinion and it’s other people’s free speech to disagree.
If You See a Problem, Flag It
Moderators have special authority; they are responsible for this forum. But so are you. With your help, moderators can be community facilitators, not just janitors or police.
When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages more bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just flag it. If enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.
To maintain our community, moderators reserve the right to remove any content and any user account for any reason at any time. Moderators do not preview new posts; the moderators and site operators take no responsibility for any content posted by the community.
If you have any suggestions on how we can improve the LEDVANCE Community, don't hesitate to share your thoughts in the comments.
