After a six-month public review period on the forum rules discussion topic
, I and the rest of the moderation and administration team here at duck.co are proud to release the official duck.co forum rules. If you have any questions about the forum rules or have any proposals to change the forum rules, feel free to reply to this topic.
Welcome to duck.co, the official DuckDuckGo community! To make your stay here as fun and enjoyable as possible, please respect and follow these forum rules:
All posts should have a purpose.
If you agree with something, please don't post "I agree". Instead, registered users should click "I find this discussion useful" or "I too have this question" or "I like this idea".
Insults or harassment towards any member of this forum is prohibited. Please respect each other.
Keep signatures small and concise.
The maximum size for an image/text signature is 500 x 150 pixels. Please refrain from using animations in your signature.
No advertisements or spam.
Unless the link is related to DuckDuckGo and the content of your post, don't post it. (However, if your website is related to DuckDuckGo, we encourage you to share it.)
One account per user.
Please do not post under more than one name. This includes posting as both a guest and as a registered user. If you forget to log in and post as a guest accidentally, make sure to respond to the post with "that was me" or something similar.
Please stay on-topic.
All responses to a topic should be related to the original post. If you would like to discuss something else, please start a new topic.
Read before you post.
Before posting, take a minute to visit the Support Center and search the forum to see if your topic has been discussed and answered already.
Think before you delete.
Please use caution when editing or deleting older posts as changing them might disrupt the flow of conversation.
Keep it clean.
Do not post or link to any website that contains sexually explicit, sexually suggestive, or gory content. In addition, please do not discuss illegal activities such as pirating.
No affiliate or referral links.
Please do not post any links to websites in which you stand to gain financially from users buying products or signing up for products through your links.
A word on licensing .
When you post an idea, graphic, or other creation on this forum, you grant that DuckDuckGo may use that asset freely without any restrictions. Your rights to that asset are waived, and no royalties may be charged for its use.
If you see a post that you believe is breaking these rules, registered users many report it to the moderators by clicking the "Inappropriate" button under each post.
Any topics/posts found breaking these rules will be locked or deleted by the moderators.
