The AMable Community is guided by a set of rules concerning the posted content and the way, we post content. These rules shall allow us to be respectful with each other, honest about our statements and supportive to others. We believe, that the AMable Community needs to be free of commercial offerings, that is why only links are allowed. If you want to present yourself, please use the space called "The Stage".
Remember that content is public unless you set it to private mode.
Can I sell my products on this platform?
Our intention is to provide a free community for people to exchange knowledge of AM. Supplementary to this, there are three specific ways commercial transactions may take place,:
- You can present your commerical offering in the "Buy-Sell" space but not in other spaces.
- You are able to have a private discussion with another member if they wish.
- There is a link on the dashboard which takes you to the AMable website, where commercial services are available
Please respect our intention and keep to the above ways to sell your products
I have a cool solution. How can I offer this to the community?
If you want to show other members your AM solution, then it is fine to discuss about it in the relevant space. A good place would be " The Stage". We can also move it to the SME AM showcase for you if we see it attract interest. If you want to charge for it or if you want to sell it, then this is a commercial activity. The only place you can do that is in the "Buy-Sell" space.
Can I suggest new features or improvements for the community?
Yes please do. We would suggest the Town Square for this, as other members may want to discuss. If we see feature requests being discussed we will contribute to the discussion and see how to implement them.
How do I start a private video call with someone?
There is a link to Jitsi meet on the left sidebar that allows free video calls of up to 5 minutes duration. We are looking at options for a more comprehensive video call module
Accessing the community from a mobile device
You can access the community via any web browser. The content dynamically scales to various media devices, eg laptop, tablet, smartphone
Are there any leadership roles or volunteer opportunities available?
Not at the moment but feel free to message one of the moderators if you are interested
Are there any membership fees or requirements to join?
No, the community is free to join and use
How can I contribute to the community?
There are many ways! Most of the 'Spaces' listed in the left sidebar are there for you to discuss things with members. If you have knowledge which can help members with challenges they may have, that would be great. You can also use The Stage to share ideas with members
Can I invite friends and colleagues to the community?
Yes you can invite friends and colleagues. Once they accept the invitation, an administrator will be notified and will accept their registration
Can I promote my business or product in the community?
We anticipate that a large proportion of members will be business owners or employees so it will be natural to 'talk shop'. However if you want to make purely commercial transactions, please follow our guidelines at the top of this page
How are community decisions made?
We expect that members will discuss topics in the Town Square, which we will be part of, and we will use polls to guage members' opinions
How can I stay up-to-date on community news and updates?
The landing page shows the latest posts and comments so we suggest keeping an eye on that. There are also multiple notification types available. You can set up notifications in your account settings page.
How do I report inappropriate behaviour or content?
Each post and comment has a drop down menu on the right hand side where you can report inappropriate content. If you are being approached unappropriately by other means eg direct messages, please let a moderator know
How do I request technical support or assistance?
Please send a message to one of the moderators (envelope icon at the top right of the page)
I seem to have lost a page
If you have a post that has 'disappeared' , message one of the moderators. It may be that it was removed for unsuitable content and you would have received a message in the notification area (bell icon, top right of page)
