Rules of the forum


The Marginfi community forum is a community-led effort to kickstart community discussions around the Marginfi product ecosystem and its various components. The end goal is to create a full-blown community organization setup to shape the project’s future through decentralized governance and active participation. The forum has been created spontaneously by community members and is currently not affiliated with any person or entity that forms part of the Marginfi team.

The following rules will be followed as a general governance principle for the forum. They have been forked from the Debian forum rules in the spirit of open software communities.

  1. We do not have any non-public information on the project so please don’t ask pointless questions
  2. Do not cross post. Posting the same topic in more than one category only creates confusion and makes it hard to keep track on the various replies. Double posts will be locked.
  3. Be descriptive. Use a meaningful headline and try to make your question as clear as possible.
  4. Be patient. Not everyone knows everything and not everyone is online all the time. If you don’t get a reply chances are that no one is online that knows the answer at the moment. Do not ‘bump’ your questions just because there have been a few hours with no reply.
  5. Do not post a reply to obvious SPAM. Please use the report button and a member of the moderation team will attend to the post or user.
  6. Be polite. Remember that the skill level of the forum members ranges from the absolute beginner to the very seasoned DeFi user and what might be obvious to you might be very hard to understand for others. It’s OK to point someone to other resources or suggest means of learning but do so politely.
  7. Do not engage in flame wars. Threads that evolve into flaming will be locked. If you feel attacked; be the better person and ignore it. The moderators are not omnipresent, so if you feel some actions need to be taken please message an admin.
  8. Stay on topic. Sometimes threads morph into something completely off topic, this is unavoidable when a bunch of people communicate. However, try to limit the off topic discussions to the off topic category. Long off topic discussions in other categories might get moved or locked.
  9. Avoid ‘thread hijacking’. Unless your question is directly related to the thread’s topic, start a new one.
  10. As a rule we do not accept commercial content.
  11. The language on this board is primarily English but we do not exclude people with little or no English. When replying to posts in other languages please include an English translation. It’s a good idea to help non-English speakers find resources in their language.
  12. A forum is a means of written communication so make sure your posts are as readable as possible. That means: Use capital letters and punctuation, and use the formatting features of the forum wisely in order to make your post attractive. Try to avoid ‘l33t speak’, ‘chatspeak,’ and ‘SMS language’.
  13. There is no need to apologize for poor English skills. We have users from all over the world and trying your best is more than adequate.
  14. Moderators might move your thread to a more suitable category (for instance from ‘General Discussion’ to ‘General Questions’). This is no cause for alarm.
  15. If you feel like your post/ thread has been locked, edited or even removed in error please contact the admin team.
