All content must be safe for work: PG in the US and UK. If your Elgg site has adult content and you have been asked to post a link, please mark it NSFW (Not Safe For Work) so people know.
Excessive swearing in any language will not be tolerated.
Working with technical problems can be frustrating. Please keep the community site free of frustration. If you’re feeling anxious, take a step away and do something else. Threatening or attacking community members, core developers, or plugin developers will not help solve your problem and will likely get you banned.
Asking for money / Offering to pay
Don’t ask for money on the community site. Likewise, don’t offer to pay for answers. If you are looking for custom development, post to the Professional Services group. Posts asking for money or recommending a commercial plugin may be moderated.
If you’re having a problem with a live site, please provide a link to it.
That said, the community site is not a back linking service or SEO tool. Excessive linking will be moderated and your account may be banned.
There’s a reason Elgg doesn’t have an option for signatures: they cause clutter and distract from the conversation. Users are discouraged from using signatures on the community site, and signatures with links or advertising will be removed.
Long bits of code are confusing to read through in a forums context. Please use http://elgg.pastebin.com to post long bits of code and provide the Paste Bin link instead of directly posting the code.
