Welcome to the Higher Logic Vanilla Community. This forum has been created so that our customers can converse, get support, exchange ideas and connect with anyone else using a Vanilla powered hosted community. 

Every community has its own culture and boundaries and we are excited to create this space for you, but we also ask you review the below guidelines, before posting, as we expect all members to be familiar with them and will be held accountable for following them as well. 

Community Guidelines 

We are a company which embraces openness and diversity, and appreciate varied points of view in a respectful manner. To maintain a similar environment, in this community, we ask you extend the same courtesies to everyone participating here. We expect everyone to act with respect and to use proper judgement for a community for community builders. Just as you'd want your own community to behave, we ask the same of you.
