The mission of this online community is to provide a peer-to-peer collaboration hub to share knowledge, answer each other’s technical questions and interact with PTC. These guidelines are here to: 1. Help you become a valuable contributor to the community, 2. Explain what kind of conduct to avoid, and 3. Make sure the community is enjoyable for and respectful of all our members. Please interact with other users accordingly and conduct yourself as you would in any professional setting. These guidelines augment our Community Terms of Service which all members agree to when they join and choose to interact on the PTC Community.
Submit only original content.
Help us maintain the community’s reputation and observe the intellectual property rights of other by only submitting content you have personally written, created or else properly acquired. The community should not be used to distribute unauthorized copies of any copyrighted material.
Keep it professional.
Every post should make a positive contribution to the community and should be suitable for all users. The community is open to all points of view on the intended product and industry topics; mature, polite debate is encouraged. But we will remove any post or reply that includes derogatory, abusive, offensive, obscene, violent or inappropriate content of any kind (including links to such content). Always interact with other users respectfully, as you would in any professional setting.
The community is intended to be used for the helpful exchange of information between members. False, inaccurate, or otherwise misleading information is generally not helpful. Please be sincere in your community participation by only contributing content you know is accurate and not misrepresenting your identity or your qualifications.
Stay on topic.
Good contributions help the entire community by providing relevant, insightful information or asking important questions. If your post contains anything unrelated to the topic at hand, it may be removed. This relates to any discussion, wiki, blog or video.
Remember your readers.
Writing in ALL CAPS or using HTML tags can make your contribution difficult to read. Excessive typographic symbols, special characters, and instant/text messaging slang can be equally hard to read and may also be confusing to users who are unfamiliar with their meanings. Try to follow standard email etiquette.
Protect privacy - yours and others'.
Don't share anything about yourself or your organization that you would not want to see on a road-side billboard. Share your business email address if you wish, but don't post personal information-your own or anyone else's-including contact information or any content that you receive in one-to-one communications without the author's consent.
The community is here for the benefit and enjoyment of its members. If you notice content within the community that does not abide by the guidelines or Community Terms of Service, please report it to our site moderators by selecting "Notify Moderator".
