This site uses post-moderation (as opposed to
pre-moderation), which enables fast communication. As a
result, posts may occasionally appear that are later
deleted. This is a necessary feature of sites that do not
moderate or otherwise set up barriers in advance in order to
handle a small subset of inappropriate posts.
Users of this Community are encouraged to fill out
real-name, detailed professional profiles. This promotes
members' work, helps networking and career development, and
puts discussions in a meaningful perspective. Impersonation
or having multiple accounts on the forum is not allowed.
Our points system is meant to reward the community members
for sharing questions and answers, so creating multiple
accounts or posting content for the sole purpose of gaining
points or soliciting others for points is not permitted.
Posting filler answers to a question in an effort to be
first to answer, or copying and pasting other members'
answers, are also forms of inappropriate means.

option from Question, Discussion, Posts, Article depending on
your content and purpose.
We urge you to go through the following guidelines before you
start contributing to the LetsUpgrade Community.
General Guidelines for posting content on the community :
Please post your content in the appropriate category. This
will expedite the support process and might help you get
quicker responses. Many of our experts only monitor threads
based on their fields of expertise and in order to get their
attention, posting your question in the correct category
Please consider inserting appropriate topics when creating a
new discussion, post or question. As discussed above this
tends to get more attention.
Once you learn a certain answer or have gained expertise in
a certain topic in a discussion, please take a moment to
help someone out in the Community.
Before you do that please browse the LetsUpgrade Community
to see if anyone has already asked the same
question/post/discussion. You can use the search feature to
look for keywords, and you can narrow your search in
specific categories. You can also use the "Popular Topics in
the sidebar" to find related posts.
If you find a post to be helpful, the least you can do is to
like it. Many of our users and moderators volunteer their
free time to help out on the LetsUpgrade Community. The
least amount of appreciation one can show them is to hit the
Don't solicit likes, comments, or posts. Users should like
and comment when they run across something they find
interesting—not for promotion.
When including links, please submit the canonical URL. Avoid
Don't be snarky. Have curious conversations; don't
cross-examine. Comments should get more thoughtful and
substantive, not less, as a topic gets more divisive.
Please respond to the strongest plausible interpretation of
what someone says, not a weaker one that's easier to
criticize. Assume good faith.
Please don't post shallow dismissals, especially of other
people's work. A good critical comment teaches us something.
No Flaming! Criticism must be constructive, well-meaning,
and well-articulated. Please, no tantrums. Rants directed at
any other contributor are simply unacceptable and will not
be tolerated. The same goes for profanity. LetsUpgrade
community environment expects higher-order language.
Please submit the original source. If a post reports on
something found on another site, submit the latter.
Code snippets are intended to provide useful code examples
where necessary. Please be sure to include them wherever
needed, as they will help in the understanding.
Please do not share the resources of LetsUpgrade Community
on any third party websites for public use. These are meant
for individuals' personal use.
This post type is useful when the members are looking to get a
definitive answer to a question. Members can add comments, post
answers, and upvote. You can also allow members to create polls
and ask anonymously.
If you’re here to get help, make it as easy as possible for
others to help you.
Questions should contain enough information for meaningful
answers to be posted, and make clear how answers can meet
their expectations. Include relevant code, images, etc with
your question/discussion to make it easy for others to help
Use the request answer feature to request answers from a
specific user(s) in the community.
If you have a new question, please create a ‘New Question.
Posts with a lot of discussions and lengthy answers tend to
get lesser attention from someone who might help.
If a question is cross-posted by another user of the
community, this should be clearly indicated. A link to the
other posting is also strongly recommended. Such links save
readers time, help to avoid duplication of effort and are
quite useful for disseminating good responses.
Add replies to a question or other answers to their
respective comment sections, not as a new answer.
Don’t spam. Don’t repost the exact same answer that is
already answered by other community users, unless you have a
better solution to the given problem. If you have any
suggestions for a given answer by another user, please post
it in the comments/replies section.
If your answer consists of code written by another user in
the same question thread, be kind to mention the user in the
With discussions, members can create content with a rich text
editor that gives ample space to give a title and a text editor
to provide additional details. This allows the members to carry
out ongoing discussions with threaded replies.
Please participate in this shared learning environment. We
encourage you to avoid lurking in the cyberspace background.
It is not enough to log in and read the discussion thread of
others. For you and others to grow we want you to actively
participate in the discussion and get maximum benefit, at
the end of the day we intend that everyone should
If you have more experience with online discussion
communities than the person who lacks or has no experience,
we request you to lend a helping hand to them. Explain the
user with a good example, and they’ll appreciate it.
Please read everything thoroughly in the discussion thread
before replying. This will help you avoid repeating
something someone else has already answered.
Acknowledge the points made with which you agree and suggest
alternatives for those with which you don’t.
Make the effort to be specific and to articulate your point,
without being preachy or pompous. Be direct. Stay on point.
Don’t lose yourself, or your readers, in overly wordy
sentences or paragraphs.
Write as if you were writing a term paper. Correct spelling,
grammatical construction, and sentence structure are
expected in every other writing activity. Online discussions
are no different
Lastly, we ask you to polish your presentation by reading
your post out loud before hitting the button. This will tell
you a lot about whether your grammar and sentence
construction is correct, your tone is appropriate, and your
contribution is clear or not.
Posts are apt for creating short updates and enabling members to
react by liking and commenting. With posts, you can allow
members to upload files and videos that would be processed with
a native video player.
Please don't do things to make titles stand out, like using
uppercase or exclamation points, or saying how great aa post
is. It's implicit in submitting something that you think
If you submit a video or pdf, please mention it by appending
[video] or [pdf] to the title.
- Do not make repetitive posts for the same content.
If the title begins with a number or number + gratuitous
adjective, we'd appreciate it if you'd crop it. E.g.
translate "5 Ways To Do X" to "How To Do X," and "10 Amazing
Ys" to "Ys." Exception: when the number is meaningful, e.g.
"The 5 Top Languages."
Otherwise please use the original title, unless it is
misleading or linkbait; don't editorialize.
Please don't delete and repost the same thing. Deletion is
for things that shouldn't have been submitted in the first
Create long-form articles such as blogs and knowledge-base posts
with a rich text editor. Allow members to react to the articles
by commenting, liking and empowering them to post ongoing
Choose a specific title for your article. Do not Plagiarize
content. Articles must be unique and original. Use proper
tags and topics related to your article.
Write a good introduction to your article. In general, aim
for an introduction that provides a brief rundown of what
the reader will learn from the article, in a few sentences.
Proper formatting of the articles is as important as the
content. Write in a proper format and make use of tools like
Heading, paragraph, Bold, Italics, code blocks (for code
snippets), Bulleting, numbering and proper English grammar
and punctuation- to make the article more readable to the
users. Clear and well-written articles are more likely to be
read, understood, and liked as they are long-form.
Language and content: Don’t use internet abbreviations and
languages like IDK, lol in the articles. Keep it standard
and genuine to whatever you feel and want to express through
the community, which will help other members to learn,
connect and grow. Use only English and try to avoid spelling
Include not only “what code” the reader should use, but also
what “it does”. This will help the reader to know the
specific application of codes used. Provide examples to
illustrate the steps more clearly, if possible
Articles should cite sources for data, scientific findings,
outside research, or other factual information verifiable by
a third party. Don’t make up your stories in the Articles.
When composing an article, you should include all the
necessary information and procedures within it. If some
article requires an additional foundation, be sure to link
to an onsite background article or provide further reputable
sources. But don’t just put a link to another website with a
heading and post it as an article.
Thank you for reading out.
All content must comply with the community guidelines mentioned
above irrespective of the content-type.
