TI E2E Community Guidelines

We want the TI E2E Community to be a place where engineers can share, discuss, collaborate and discover great information and ideas. In keeping with that spirit, our community we have a core set of guidelines for everyone to follow. These guidelines will make the TI E2E Community (public technical support Forums) a place that everyone can enjoy.

Engage with the community: There are numerous ways on E2E to successfully connect with your fellow engineers, including answering other member questions, sharing your engineering expertise and providing community feedback. Essentially, as long as the following guidelines are followed, there is no wrong way to help support your fellow engineers.

Verify answers: Accurate and timely responses to technical problems are important to all of our community members. In effort to help improve both accuracy and timeliness on the community, we ask that all members make a dedicated effort to "verify" answers that successfully resolve member questions.   

Comments come from the public: We do not verify all information shared by E2E community members. The answers, suggestions, and guidance provided by community members do not necessarily reflect that of Texas Instruments and are the responsibility of the individuals who created the information.

Protect your personal and other sensitive information: Remember these are public forums and not private communications. Please do not share, post, or send, any personal, sensitive, proprietary or confidential information.

Be courteous:  The purpose of the TI E2E Community is to ask questions, share knowledge, explore idea and help solve problems with fellow engineers. By sharing what you know, you can make a positive contribution to our community.  Differences of opinion are welcome but it is not permitted to post anything that is obscene or otherwise objectionable, or that could be used to harass, abuse or threaten others. This includes anything obscene or otherwise objectionable in any provided profile information.

Stay on topic: Your comments should be relevant to the area or topic where they are placed. The posting of spam, commercial messaging, marketing materials, or content protected by copyright, trademark or other rights is not allowed.

Duplicate Questions: Please limit your question to one thread or post. Any duplicate posts or threads are immediately removed.

Keep it safe: We want our community to be a place everyone can feel safe.  Do not post links to sites that contain viruses or malicious software. Do not post anything that violates the laws of your country, state, province or city.

You Are Responsible for Your Actions: If another party makes a claim against Texas Instruments that is related to the comments you submit, to your actions, or to your use of this Service, you agree to indemnify and hold Texas Instruments, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, partners and licensors harmless from those claims or demands, which may include reasonable attorneys' fees.

Texas Instruments reserves the right to delete any comment or ban any user, with or without notice, at any time and for any reason, including, without limitation, our judgment that the user has violated these community guidelines. We reserve the right to modify or change these guidelines without notice. We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, this service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
