What are the good samples for community policies?

Where am I?

In Tribe you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

In tribe communities, you can have your own Privacy Policies and Community Policies

Privacy Policies informs your users of policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when they use your Service and the choices they have associated with that data. As a sample, you can use Our Privacy Policy for Tribe Technologies Inc. 

In Tribe, we use member's data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible from https://www.tribe.so22.

Community Policies are the rules that you, as a community manager, define regarding the member's activities, questioning and answering rules, community moderator's scope of authority, etc. 

You can use Tribe's Community Policies in your own community. You can also modify there policies to be more compatible with your community's goal. Some of our Community Policies that can be generalized are:

1. Questions should be sincere attempts to obtain reusable information

  • The primary intention of a question should be to obtain information, not to argue a point or make a statement.
  • Questions should not be used to promote a business or service.
  • Questions should encourage answers with explanation and should be as open-ended as possible. Limited-choice questions are not allowed.
  • Questions should not narrow the users who are invited to respond, and should not be directed at specific user(s).

2. Questions and Answers should be clearly written

  • Questions/Answers in Tribe require correct spelling, punctuation, grammar and capitalization, consist of complete sentence(s) and end in a question mark or dot.
  • Questions should contain enough information to make clear how answers can meet their expectations.
  • Questions should be concise, no longer than 2 sentences, and only one question should be asked at a time.
  • Answers should directly address the question and contain sensible information.

Questions/Answers should comply with Tribe site policies

  • Questions/Answers about individuals that are hurtful, mean-spirited or likely to make the person uncomfortable aren't allowed.
  • Questions/Answers that constitute harassment and have the potential to make the experience of using Tribe unpleasant or uncomfortable for group(s) of users may be deleted.
  • All content on Tribe, including questions, answers, and discussions should be written in English (or any other language defined by the community manager).
  • Legal and medical questions/answers that deal with client- or patient-specific facts are not allowed and may be deleted or reworded to describe a general situation.

Questions/Answers are viewed as community property

  • Questions/Answers may be deleted or reworded by admin(s) if they contravene policy.
  • Questions/Answers that have the same meaning, will be merged into the question/answer with the phrasing that is simplest and most commonly asked.

Topics should be used to help people find information easier and faster

  • Topics that are not directly relevant to the question, are overly broad, or are relevant only to certain answers should not be applied.

Question Guidelines

Questions are stronger if they are phrased neutrally, ask for information and ask why

  • Questions are stronger if they are phrased neutrally, not containing assumptions or amplifying false information.
