The H2O Community is a place to ask questions, find answers, learn from experts & peers, and share knowledge. We are a community used by people of different cultures and backgrounds and as such, we carefully moderate its content. Please help us keep this community a safe and welcoming place for all members by abiding by these Community Guidelines.
Our Community Guidelines govern your use of the H2O Community and are an addition to our Terms of Use which all members must agree to before registering. If you come across content that violates these Guidelines, please follow the instructions in the 'Report Abuse' section below. We take these to heart and hope that you’ll do the same as well.   
1. Be Respectful 
The H2O Community is a platform that helps people deepen their knowledge of H2O’s products and services and connects members and users from around the world around the areas of machine learning and data science. To maintain the quality of content and resources on the platform, we don’t allow the posting of mature, abusive, or illegal content to the Community, including but not limited to, the following:

  • Spam and advertisements 
  • Pornographic material & explicit nudity  
  • Hate speech or highly offensive language  
  • Harassment and threats  
  • Graphic violence  
  • Illegal activities or goods  
  • Self-harm or the promotion of self-harm  
  • Depictions of minors in a sexual manner  
  • Promotion of terrorism or violent extremism
  • Business sensitive information  
  • Content that invade’s someone else’s privacy 

2. Be Supportive 
We are a community designed to promote and encourage ethical practices, creative expression, and a learning environment. Keep your posts, comments, private messages, and other communications on-topic, constructive, and encouraging. You may question the beliefs and expertise of others as long as it is done in a respectful and non-threatening manner.
3. Be Safe 
Do not share your own or others’ personal information (like full name, home address, phone number, email address, government-issued IDs, or anything else that would let someone locate or contact you in the real world). Please use the report button if you detect anything suspicious. 
4. Be Authentic 
We disable accounts that engage in behavior that undermines the authenticity of our community, including but not limited to, the following deceptive, harmful behaviors:  

  • Using fake profiles 
  • Impersonating other people or entities 
  • Posting false or misleading information 
  • False attribution of someone’s work 
  • Using automated or scripting processes (such as bulk or automated uploading of content through a script) 
  • Accepting or offering compensation in exchange for engagement  
  • Engaging in schemes or third-party services to boost account engagement  

Uploading other people's work as if it is your own is a copyright infringement and is not tolerated. If you aren’t sure whether your use of someone else’s content or trademark in your own work is legal, you can talk to an attorney or consult publicly available reference materials at the following: 

5. Report Abuse   
If you ever believe a user is violating the H2O Community Guidelines, you can report it by clicking on the ‘Report’ button below each conversation and providing a brief explanation about why the content violates the Community Guidelines.
