BarTender Community Forums Usage Policy
Welcome to the BarTender Community, your place to connect with your peers to learn, share, and collaborate. We want everyone to be part of our community and have their voice heard.
“Community” refers to any place on the Seagull Scientific Support Portal where you can post. This includes all of the Community Topics and comments section.
Read through these policies before posting or commenting; all users are expected to be familiar with them and will be held accountable for following them.
We support an open and friendly environment in our community. To maintain that environment, we ask you to be respectful of one another and Seagull Scientific, act with good intentions, and use good judgment, and assume that others are doing the same. You are responsible for your own actions while participating in this community.
Here are some things to remember in the community:
- Be respectful, friendly, and sincere
- Use appropriate tone and language - be nice, don't use foul or inappropriate language
- Encourage others, especially new users
- Share your knowledge about BarTender
- Ask for help and help others
- Provide constructive, helpful answers and feedback
- Give enough detail when asking questions, including all relevant information such as product version, operating system, printer and printer driver version, database platform, etc.
- Since most of this content is user generated, Seagull Scientific makes no claims as to the accuracy or reliability of any material submitted by users. You should always remember to use sound judgment when following the advice of others.
- Relax and have fun!
Here are some things we do not permit in the community:
- For your own safety, do not share your BarTender Product Key Codes or Support Numbers. Please be aware this is an public space visible to all; sharing this information might result in a fraudulent use of your BarTender license.
- Do not include file attachments or shared links in your posts. Sharing your BarTender data and logs, or any other files is openly discouraged and will result on the removal of said content, warning and subsequent banning if this behavior is repeated;
- Do not post your contact information or email address in the community. This is a publicly visible forum. We recommend that you don’t post any information that may identify you or anyone else, such as your address, email address or phone number. Do also not solicit community members for their personal or contact information for any reason.
- Do not post or link to information that is deceptive, fraudulent, threatening, libelous, harassing or hateful;
- Do not insult or harass anyone. Respectfully disagreeing with someone, including the Seagull Scientific community team, in a constructive, respectful, well-reasoned manner is okay and we welcome a civil discussion. However, it is not appropriate to use the Seagull Scientific's Community Forum as an outlet for your anger or frustration. Unconstructive, toxic, profane, or generally abusive comments will lead to removal from our Community;

- Do not post or link to content that violates anyone’s intellectual property rights (including copyright, patent, trademark, publicity, moral and other property or proprietary rights) or which you do not have the right to post or link to.

If you are reported or deemed to be a spammer, you may be banned from the Seagull Scientific Community Forums;
