Engage with Others in a Constructive Way

Assume everyone on SEA Forum is here to make the platform a great resource with diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions. It is OK to disagree, but please be civil, respectful, and considerate to other posters.

No Hate Speech

SEA Forum is a place for civil discourse and does not tolerate content that attacks or disparages an individual or group based on race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, political group, sexual orientation or other similar characteristic. Any generalisations about these topics should be phrased as neutrally as possible.

No Harassment and Bullying

Abusive behaviour directed towards private individuals is not allowed. Repeated and unwanted contact constitutes a form of harassment. Content should not make threats against others or advocate violence, including self-harm.

Respect the Rights of Others

Identity and Deceptive Activity

Your Forum Profile should use accurate and truthful credentials and should follow our name policy. Do not use SEA Forum to impersonate another person, act as another entity without authorization, or create multiple accounts with the intention of violating SEA's policies.

English only

At this moment in the SEA Forum, we only use the English language. When you create a post try to double-check your writing and be as clear as possible. For the single legal/ technical terms it is ok to use German.

Stick to the topics

Our Forum is sorted by topics, try to be as accurate with the topic as possible. If you think that what you want to post doesn’t fit any of the categories just post it in the room Other Topics. We aim to regularly clean up and sort the forum and we might also open new categories. To request opening a new category contact us at hi@self-employed.at.

Self-promotion 

If there is no category for self-promotion and advertising at the given moment do not promote your business in the categories that have nothing to do with it. If the conversation is related to your business you do have the right to promote it in any category. For self-promotion requests and questions contact us at hi@self-employed.at. Every user has a limit of three self-promotion posts per week, exceeding this amount will result in the removal of the posts.
