We like to keep things simple, but even simple things need rules. Please keep the following in mind when submitting, voting or commenting on Inbound.org or we may have to ban you from participating:
Rule #1 - Be Cool
Observe coolness when writing a comment, giving a response or interacting with your fellow community members. Anger, insults, derogatory language and all other forms of non-coolness are unwelcome.
Rule #2 - Submit Only the Best Stuff
There's a lot of content on the web that could fall into inbound marketing categories. This isn't the place to host all of them, but rather the few excellent pieces that stand out. Please don't post content you and other will probably know about before. Instead, try Your friendly Inbound.org admins will ban accounts or even domains that submit lots of subpar material.
Rule #3 - Don't (just) Submit Your Own Stuff
Okays, sometimes you write a jaw-droppingly awesome piece and just have to submit it. That's cool, if it's the exception and it really adds to the community. But please don't just post your own stuff (if it's good, then other people will find and submit it). Besides, we'd love to see and share what you're finding interesting. Most of the time it's not our own stuff.
Rule #4 - Two Strikes, You're Out
Not being cool? Submitting crap? Manipulating the voting? The first one's free (though not particularly appreciated) followed by account removal on a second offense. Unfortunately, because this project is a labor of love and we've all got day jobs, we're not able to provide a warning on the first offense, so please be mindful.
Rule #5 - First Action a Strike, You're Out
Our single biggest type of spammer is the "hit and run" spammer. The type that signs up and drops loads of poor quality irrelevant links from their own sites, then never turns up again. Clearing out these spammers takes care of 95% of the breaches of community guidelines. If you're breaking any one of these community guidelines when you first sign up to Inbound.org, we won't give you a second chance.
Thanks for helping make the Inbound.org community great!
