How this Forum will be Moderated

Welcome to the Polkadot Forum!

This is a place for thoughtful comments and discussions on the future of Polkadot, and the steps we can take to get there together.

  • All our decisions should be made based on the long-term ecosystem benefits instead of the short-term individual profits. When you make a post, please include how your suggestion relates to the ecosystem benefits.
  • Respect others and convince others by data and numbers, not by random emotional comments.
  • Topics and replies with low information content will be moderated. Keeping this governance board clear and simple is the key to our successful discussion.

Your Participation Counts

  1. Rather than posting “+1” or “Agreed”, use the Like button. Rather than taking an existing topic in a radically different direction, use Reply as a Linked Topic.
  2. Use the search function before posting, a similar topic may have already been started.
  3. Criticize ideas, not people. Use arguments and numbers, not emotions.
  4. When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just flag it.
  5. If you have any further questions about how things should work here, open a new topic in the site feedback category Polkadot-Meta and let’s discuss!
