    Mellanox reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to:

    • Edit and/or remove any post containing or linking to material in violation of these Rules of Engagement.
    • Disable the membership of any user who violates these Rules of Engagement.

    Keep it relevant

    For everyone's benefit please stay on topic. The community is specifically provided to allow users of Jive to help each other in using products and services from Jive. Please refrain from discussing personal matters, abusing any company or product, selling outside services or products or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to the resolution of issues regarding the products and services.


    Keep it courteous

    Everyone wants to have a positive experience while on the Mellanox Community - please make sure that you are not detracting from any other user's experience. In particular, please refrain from posting anything unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, profane, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable or injurious to third parties.


    Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment ("flaming") in either or through messaging are not acceptable.


    Keep it clear

    Please communicate clearly so everyone may understand. Avoid using slang, "net speak" or any other wording which might be difficult for all users to understand. We are a diverse community and seek to provide a comfortable environment where you can get help from other users like yourself. This can only happen if we can understand each other.


    Be careful

    You should not post personal information publicly on the community including your name and address, age, phone number, or Social Security Number of customers. Most people in the community are happy to help out, but remember that their advice is theirs only and that you are responsible for deciding whether or not to follow it. If the advice given by a user sounds wrong to you, do not try it.



    Community Moderators & Specialists

    From time-to-time Mellanox may designate certain members as Community Moderators, or other valued member of the community.  The designation allows the community to know which members have been helpful, have provided constructive advice and have set a positive example and tone for the community.


    When in doubt as to whether information should be made public, do not reveal it here or elsewhere.
