Forum Participation Étiquette:

As it pertains to opinions and criticisms:

There are bound to be disagreements and circumstances where people truly believe a project or individual to be a bad actor. However, it is important that we maintain the decorum of the forum by addressing things in a constructive way.

That is why I am presenting some guidelines on how to better interact with posts which you may have disagreements with.

Jupiter never wants to censor dissenting opinions, however, there are better ways to present them than others.

Example 1:
This project is a scam!

Vs.

This project seems like a scam to me, because XYZ

Example 2:

This is a rug! The founder is bad!

Vs.

I’ve had a poor interaction with this project in the past, and this is what happened:

It is important to be articulate with your dissent instead of stating pure judgements without substantiation. When you make claims, please present evidence, and additionally please be respectful to other members of the forum.

If your post makes too many aggressive judgements without evidence, or devolves into attacks against other forum members, it will be subject to removal by the moderation team.

I agree with u, we shouldn’t slander a project without evidence, its true that some projects may not have a good past but they may be successful in future,
