NACE COMMUNITY RULES AND GUIDELINES

Thank you for being part of the NACE Community. To ensure the best possible experience for all members, we have established some basic guidelines for participation.

By joining and using this community, you agree that you have read and will follow these rules and guidelines. This is a great medium with which to solicit the advice of your peers, benefit from their experience, and participate in an ongoing conversation.

Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important guidelines. In order to preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate membership in this community for anyone who violate these rules.

If you have questions about the rules or guidelines, please direct them to the Community Manager.

THE RULES

  • Comments and discussions are meant to stimulate conversation, and should be respectful and professional in nature and in tone. Please allow others to have their say; please do not attack or challenge others.
  • Comments and discussions should add to the body of knowledge. NACE reserves the right to reject any posting for any reason.
  • All postings must be made in the name of an individual vs. an anonymous account. (The NACE Community is open only to members of the National Association of Colleges and Employers; it is a members-only benefit.)
  • Comments and discussions should not be commercial or promotional in nature. Please do not post commercial or promotional messages on any discussion, resource library entry, or other area where others might see it. (This includes job opportunities, career and job fairs, books, workshop, conferences, web-based service, e-mail or online polls, surveys, and/or focus groups, or other career/recruitment resources.) Contact people directly with product and service information if you believe it would help them.
  • Do not discuss specific products or services with the community as a whole. Information posted on the lists and in the libraries is available for all to see, and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws. 
  • All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you. 
  • As noted below in more detail, do not post any information or other materials protected by copyright without the permission of the copyright owner. Please note carefully all items listed in the “Legal Considerations” section below, particularly regarding the copyright ownership of information posted.

DISCUSSION GROUP ETIQUETTE

  • Include a signature tag on all messages. Include your name, affiliation, and location. 
  • State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject. 
  • Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply. Delete any header information, and put your response before the original posting. 
  • Only send a message to the entire list when it contains information that everyone can benefit from.
  • Do not send administrative messages, such as “Remove me from the list.” Instead, go to your profile (accessible from the top of the page), and make your changes there. (Need assistance? Contact NACE Customer Service.)
  • Warn other list subscribers of lengthy messages either in the subject line or at the beginning of the message body with a line that says "Long Message."
