OLS Forum Netiquette and House Rules
The OLS forum is the right place for getting in touch with other Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps participants. In the forum, you will be able to connect and share your language learning and cultural experiences with your peers. Moreover, within our forums you will find our community managers ready to answer your questions and help you succeed!
In order to ensure a smooth and fruitful participation for all the members of the forum, we kindly ask you to have a look and respect the following rules of the house:
Be helpful and feel free to ask for help
The community forum is a place to share cultural experiences and to support each other in learning a new language. Please feel encouraged to ask questions, start discussions and participate!
Do not spam or self-promote in the forum
Do not spam the forum with links to another website/product. Do not try to self-promote your website/business or publish malicious content. Your account may be banned temporarily or permanently if you continually ignore this rule (this will be left to the discretion of the moderation team).
Do not post copyright-infringing material
Do not upload, attach, or otherwise post any copyrighted material that you are not authorised to redistribute (subject to the licensing terms of the specific item). If you have a question about permissions to post or attach a specific item, please ask a moderator.
Do not post "offensive" posts, links or images
Do not post anything which is offensive, hateful, racist, sexist, discriminatory, obscene, vulgar or in violation of local or international laws.
Be respectful of other users, moderators and administrators.
All posts should be collaborative and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective. However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community.
Do not publish content incentivizing the use of alcohol, tobacco, or drugs.
If you break a rule, you will either receive a warning or be banned. A ban on your user account may either be temporary or permanent.
And most importantly: Have fun!
Learning a new language and going abroad is an exciting experience. The OLS Community is here to support you!
