Slack Community Guidelines

We created this Slack community as a way for you to connect with each other in meaningful ways.

First...

  • In case you don't already have it, download the Slack app. It comes in handy and it gives you a break from your browser.
  • Use the invitation you've received via email to activate your account and sign on.
  • Create both your account and display names in this format: <First Name> <Last Name>. 
  • You’ll automatically be added to some channels, but you can mute or leave them as desired. Click on the channel name, and then the gear icon.
  • Add your photo to your profile.

Introduce yourself
We want to get to know you, so head over to the #introductions channel and let us know who you are and what you're currently working on. By sharing your areas of expertise and interests, we'll all know what to come to you for.

Rules of engagement
If you think your question or comment is relevant to the community-at-large, put it in a public channel. If it’s specific to a person or a handful of people, keep it private. Give as much context as possible for your question or comment. Share what you know and only give feedback when solicited.

This Slack community is for:

  • getting to know each other
  • sharing knowledge
  • inspiring and helping each other out
  • thinking through challenges together

This Slack community is not for:

  • Self-promotion that doesn’t add value
  • Job postings
  • Marketing
  • Trolling of fellow members
  • Objectionable content

If you see something that we think violates these guidelines, please send @carloparsons a direct message. We always give folks the benefit of the doubt but we will always reach out to the concerned individuals to make sure these guidelines are observed.

What if I have a support-related question?
This Slack community was designed for you to get to know other folks in the program. It is not optimized to support issues. We have a team that is better equipped to assist you as quickly as possible with anything you're having trouble with. Please contact us directly at [email protected].

What if I have a content-related question?
We've created discuss.reforge.com to assist you with any questions or thoughts you'd like to share regarding your program and the lectures.

Have a request or a question that’s not listed above?
Feel free to send @carloparsons a direct message in Slack or ping @reforge in any public channel.
