The Foundation of the Ubuntu Forums
The foundation of the Ubuntu Forums is the Forums Code of Conduct. It is based on the Ubuntu Code of Conduct but is specifically written to cover forum usage, behavior, and expectations. Please refer to the link on the front page of the Ubuntu Forums, under Forum Help, for the most recent version, as this document is occasionally updated.
The basics of the Forum Code of Conduct are simple and are summed up in the first rule: "Be respectful of all users at all times. This means please use etiquette and politeness. Treat people with kindness and gentleness. If you do this, the rest of the Code of Conduct won't need more than a cursory mention."
