Ground Rules

Here are some ground rules for the Discovery Exchange: 

No Spam/Advertising/Self-Promotion

We define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services, and/or other websites, or posts with little or completely unrelated content. Please make sure that the content you are posting is data science project related! Please do not spam the Discovery Exchange with links to your site/product, try to self-promote your website (if it's not a team project), etc. Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users. 

Do not post copyright-infringing material 

Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden. We want to make sure to support our peers and other data scientists in the data they collect, the work that they complete, and their intellectual property as a whole. 

Do not post "offensive" posts, links, or images

Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is explicit or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.

Do not cross-post questions/projects 

Please refrain from posting the same question in several sub-sections! You can use the "tag" feature if your project fits into more than one category to help students find projects. 

Remain respectful of other members at all times 

All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.

However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.
