As a member of the Ignorance project, you have a voice. And a vote. And none of the founder has a double vote or so. We are democratic organized. Please mention, the rulers of our worlds believe, that there is so much stupidity out there, that democratic engagement and enrollments of engagements, to make the world a better place, does not work. Because People are stupid, seflish, egocentric. Our aim is to show up the opposite.
Keep it clean - Keep the language clean (no swearing) We have on groups language tags you can choose or edit while creating a group. This Language Tag should help to find the right community members in your region and language, each content below inherit these language tag.
Its visible by search, or entering a group. Up 3 language you can flag for a group. And its the max to be allowed. So Swiss German will not be treated as different flag than German. Because we treat it as a dialect. Because if you go to Bayern, you see, we speak almost the same dialect :-)
Be helpful - Be patient with new people and be willing to jump in to answer questions.
Stay calm - The written word is always subject to interpretation, so give people the benefit of the doubt and try not to let emotions get out of control.

Stay relevant - post your content in the relevant group or project.
Write in the language of your group- All posts on the groups and projects must should be in as flagged, unless your Group has different language tags. Then you post in the language of your group and their members. The aim is to make content globally available. And under some circumstances, to deliver for other region, for some topics, a kind of blue print, so local communities can act, engage, force, and empower locally.
Start your own topic - Do not hijack other people's topics.
No useless posts - This includes: Thread bumping, useless one liners, Flame-wars, Trolling and Spamming.
Use your own words - If you wish to use the words of somebody else, quote them, citing the source. Plagiarism is unethical and is illegal in many countries.
Do not shame anybody - This is not the place to settle a battle. Settle your disputes in private please.
Don't spam - If we see your promotional material on many locations that is considered spamming. Do it on your own profile. If people like it, they'll follow you by choice.
