Part of your role as a volunteer is to help ensure that community members are following NTEN’s online community guidelines.

The guidelines were simplified in Fall 2016 to make it easier for community members to understand and organizers to identify and respond to violations.

Organizers should be familiar with the main tenets:

  1. Behavior: Respect others. Focus on the content of posts and not those who are making them.
  2. Privacy and Trust: Respect your peers by not scraping their contact information or sharing their comments/resources without asking.
  3. Marketing and Self-Promotion: Respect the community’s purpose by not using it as a marketing channel.
