Let’s Get Social
A Social Wall - what is that?
Is there anything I’m not supposed to post on the Social Wall?
In an effort to make our Social Wall a welcoming and entertaining place to mingle for everybody, we kindly ask you to refrain from posting the following contents:
- Treat other users with respect and humility, just as you would if you’d meet them in person at one of our NamesCon events. Posts that present a violation against our general code of conduct will be deleted.
- Within the platform, the Social Wall is visible for everybody. Do not post any sensitive data such as contact information etc. unless you are ok with it going public.
- Please refrain from posting available domains individually to the Social Wall. Feel free to post an overview within one post though.
- Please refrain from posting commercial content on the Social Wall, unless you are a Sponsor of the event. One post informing our users of activations and specials is acceptable, if it gets out of hand we will classify your posts as spam and subsequently delete them.
Depending on the extent to how badly our code of conduct has been violated, results may vary from warnings to exclusions from the platform. The admin will make a final decision on how to deal with each case individually.
Can I post about the conference on social media? And is there a place to see what other attendees are saying?
