Topic Rules

Be Respectful: Treat all community members with respect and courtesy. Everyone has different levels of experience, and we encourage a supportive environment where questions can be asked without fear of judgment.

Stay on Topic: Keep all posts and discussions related to development and programming. TIL is about sharing knowledge and insights that are relevant to developers' interests.

Provide Value: When sharing a TIL post, ensure it offers valuable information or a unique perspective. Avoid low-effort or irrelevant submissions.

Source Your Information: If you share facts, tips, or techniques, provide credible sources or documentation to back them up. Reliable references help to maintain the quality and accuracy of the community's content.

No Self-Promotion: TIL is not a platform for self-promotion or marketing. Avoid sharing content that promotes your products, services, or personal websites.

Use Clear and Concise Titles: When submitting a TIL post, use descriptive titles that accurately reflect the content. This makes it easier for others to find and engage with your post.

Avoid Reposts: Before sharing, check the community's archives to ensure your TIL has not been posted before. Duplicate posts can clutter the feed and lead to redundancy.

Engage in Discussions: If you come across a TIL post that interests you, participate in the discussion by asking questions or providing additional insights. Constructive dialogue is encouraged.

No Hate Speech or Discrimination: Hate speech, discrimination, or any form of offensive behavior will not be tolerated. Keep discussions inclusive, diverse, and free from harmful language.

Report Inappropriate Content: If you encounter any content that violates the community guidelines, report it to the moderators for review.

No Plagiarism: Respect intellectual property rights. If you share content from other sources, give proper credit and link to the original material.

Be Mindful of Security Concerns: Avoid sharing sensitive information or code that may compromise security or violate privacy.

Respect Copyright Laws: Do not share copyrighted material without the necessary permissions. Only post content that you have the right to share.

Quality over Quantity: Focus on sharing high-quality TIL posts rather than flooding the community with numerous low-quality ones.

Follow Platform Guidelines: Abide by the rules and guidelines of the platform where the TIL community exists.

Failure to comply with these rules may result in warnings, post removal, or, in severe cases, banning from the community. Remember, the primary goal is to foster a positive, informative, and helpful environment where developers can learn and grow together.
