We are dedicated to maintain a friendly online community where members of all technical backgrounds can feel relaxed and comfortable to share their business requirements. Like any community, we have certain standards. When members join our advice board, they agree to abide by these standards.

Respect each other's opinions. If you disagree with a comment, feel free to respectfully and politely challenge that comment in a civil manner. Do not engage in personal attacks (including name-calling) on fellow commenters.

Stay on topic. Members ask questions to get a solution, talking about pizza when trying find a fitting CRM is not productive.

Don’t use profanity. We want to cultivate a civil environment that does not contain content that is libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, harassing, or threatening.

Keep it legal. Any illegal activities will result in a permanent account ban and removal from the community.

Respect other Member’s privacy. Do not share other member’s private information like email address, phone number and other identifying information.
