See posting status at the OS Forums Status page.
Someone suggested the rule "If you wouldn't say it to your Mom, don't post it here." But "mom" includes Dilbert's mom who can tell the difference between packet-routing networks and circuit-switching networks, and is, in general a bigger geek than Dilbert. So the only rules are:
- All postings must be civil.
- Off-topic posts must be humorous and not dominate the group.
How to create a new forum#
Propose the new forum with a posting to OSMeta
and ask for comments. When a consensus is reached a project admin will create the group. Do the same if you think an existing group's mandate should be changed.
