Community organization

1.1.1. What may I expect from others within Tiki Community?

Community members do their best to follow Tiki Social Contract

1.1.2. What do others expect from me?

Others expect you to read understand and do your best to follow the Tiki Social Contract.

In addition you are requested to follow these basic rules within Tiki Community: If you are not a developer

  1. exclaim Use and improve the docs
    Verbose mode:
    1. Search the documentation first and read the FAQ before asking questions.
    2. When asking questions update the documentation when you get the answers.
      When answering questions please reference the docs/FAQs/etc. This will increase the visibility (and maybe overall usage) a valuable resource.
    3. Those who complain about the documentation update its pages to make it better.
  2. exclaim Report bugs or feature enhancement requests
    Verbose mode:
    1. A bug only exists if it's reported in the bugtracker
    2. When in doubt file a bug report or request a feature/enhancement in the bugtracker
    3. If you can't code yourself your own enhancement ideas don't expect that your request will be implemented in short if ever. You might be interested in hiring a coder to do that for you if you think that things are getting done much more slowly than you would need/like.
