SingleStore Forum Guide

Hello SingleStore friends! Welcome to our forum guide. These forums are for community members, customers, teammates and collaborators. This forum serves as a friendly informational space to connect with the SingleStore team and with each other to ask/answer questions, share feedback, learn and grow together.

We are proud of the shared community we’ve built. We hope you find the content interesting and enjoy participating to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation. Our outline for treating this discussion forum with respect and consideration is in our Code of Conduct.

Use this forum guide as an aid to assist you with navigating this community space. We intend these guidelines to help to keep this a clean, well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

If you’re trying to reach out for support, please contact any of our moderators and they will ensure that your request is on it’s way to resolution. We’re happy to help!

Our Contribution

The conversations we have here set the tone for everyone. Help us influence the future of this community by choosing to engage in discussions that make this forum an interesting place to be — and avoiding those that do not.

This forum provides tools that enable the community to collectively identify the best (and worst) contributions: favorites, bookmarks, likes, flags, replies, edits, and so forth. Use these tools to improve your own experience, and everyone else’s, too.

Your Contribution
Our community doesn’t exist with our awesome community members! Our community is full of talented professionals and curious self-starters that keep the community alive with their sharing and feedback! Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. Something you share can inspire others in a number of ways.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

One way to improve the discussion is by discovering ones that are already happening. Please spend some time browsing the topics here before replying or starting your own, and you’ll have a better chance of meeting others who share your interests.

Flagging Posts

Forum moderators have special authority; they are responsible for this forum. But so are you. With your help, moderators can be community facilitators, not just janitors or police.

When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. Just flag it. If enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.

In order to maintain our community, moderators reserve the right to remove any content and any user account for any reason at any time. Moderators do not preview new posts in any way; the moderators and site operators aren’t responsible for any content posted by the community but will do their best effort to remove unwanted posts.

A Tidy Space

So that we can spend more time discussing, let’s do our best to stay organized. To help others find your posts easier and eliminate clean-up, let’s put topics in the right place.

  • Try not to start a topic in the wrong category.
  • Try not to cross-post the same thing in multiple topics.
  • Try not to post no-content replies.
  • Try not to divert a topic by changing it midstream.
  • Try not to sign your posts — every post has your profile information attached to it.
