This is a community of real people who collaborate on answers, solutions, and ideas about Automatic. We invite you to join us here, but we do have a few rules — as few as possible. For everyone’s sake, we are committed to enforcing these guidelines and operating under the tenets of the Company-Customer Pact.

Be your awesome self
People will respect you more, engage with you more often, and treat you like a real person if you use your actual identity here. Have the courage to be you — instead of “Anonymous72′′. While not mandatory, we think you’ll have a much better online experience when you stand behind your words.

Have (good, clean) fun!
We’re cheerleaders for any activity that encourages the spirit of fun, so long as it doesn’t hurt other people. Please, no words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and, in general, don’t post sexual or violent material. If you do, your content will be removed by a Moderator and you will be banned from the community.

Be constructive with your criticism
Professional critics have something to teach us: They foster healthy conversation and debate without ever attacking people personally. Think about that when responding to others, and ask yourself the question: Would you say it to their face?

Spread the wealth
Make the community a richer place by sharing your experience and insight. You may have the perfect answer to someone else’s burning question. This is the beauty of this medium. It’s how you give back to the community.

Privacy, please
Remember, this is a public space. Do not post private information such as phone numbers, address, credit card information or anything else you don’t want the entire Internet to see.

No hawking!
This is a community, not a baseball stadium. Please keep your posts relevant to the conversation. If you’re here to plant a ton of links, you and your posts will be removed by a Moderator.

Don’t be naughty
Make sure you have the right to publish any content you post to our community, and don’t violate the privacy of others.

No trolls!
A troll is a participant in a community whose sole purpose is to complain, be contrary, attack others and generally wreak havoc with no interest in positive interactions or resolutions. If you’re still not sure whether you’re a troll, read up on it here. Trolls create a stressful atmosphere for all community members and will be removed from the community.

Those boots were made for walking
If our community isn’t for you, there’s always the door. We’ll miss you, but we’d hate for you to stick around if you’re unhappy.

Thank you for considering these rules, which are, themselves, carefully considered. As with any community, it’s up to each of us to create a space for honest dialog, open communication, and productive collaboration. And hopefully we can have some fun along the way too!
