We're all here to accomplish the same goals. Therefore, we need your help to keep this community strong and useful.

These guidelines were created to ensure that together we're creating a place that’s welcoming, inclusive, and valuable for everyone.


  • Please START NEW TOPICS when you have a different item to discuss, do not simply reply to an existing topic.
  • When REPLYING, please reply all of your thoughts on a single reply.  Don't reply, then reply again, then reply again - this causes confusion in reading your replies.  This is not twitter.
  • EDIT your own topic, you are given 36 hours (3 days) to edit your topics and replies.
  • please TAG your TOPICS!!  this helps the search engine, and helps everyone find what they are looking for fast.  See our topic on tagging here: https://datavaultalliance.com/discussions/read-first/using-tags/#post-199

With that in mind, we ask that you keep these principles in mind when you post.

Focus on knowledge sharing, not giving out advice.

There are plenty of places online where we can dole out our expert opinions. We want to instead foster an environment where healthy debate is encouraged and everyone is celebrated for sharing their questions, stories, and perspectives. Our goal is to tackle big questions and work together to discover all of the potential answers. That can only happen when we are committed to collaboration and true knowledge sharing.

Don't Worry about what Dan Thinks, Post anyway!!

Please don't be bashful.  Post your questions, and replies - what makes a community is your participation.  This is not meant to be a one-sided "Dan says" platform.  It is meant to be an exchange of ideas.  Even if you're new to Data Vault, ask your questions.  I guarantee - together we will move forward faster...  My voice is only one of many qualified voices here in the community.

Be respectful.

Please be kind and constructive when you add a new post, ask a question, or comment on someone else's contribution. Snark or spam will be deleted immediately, and any flaming will also be dealt with.  We will warn once, and on the second offense - ban for life.

Provide context.

We love it when our members share links and resources. If you do, add some commentary or give us some context so that we can understand more about why you care about this particular topic or article.

Please don't overtly promote.

Feel free to share your knowledge and experiences with the others here in this community, but please do not promote yourself or your business. Spamming, soliciting, or self-promotion will not be tolerated.

Note: IF you want to take a topic off-line, contact the individual by PRIVATE MESSAGE.  You can: find their profile, then send them a private message here.  When you send private messages, an email will be sent to the recipient - notifying them they have a private message.

NOTE: Self-Promotion can be done in your profile - we want you to share how to contact you, and if you have skills - demonstrate them by answering others questions and participating in discussions!  If you wish to advertise here, please speak with us directly first.  You can add your self-promotion to your BIOGRAPHY in your profile. 

Promotion by Signature Line

You may add a SIGNATURE line to your profile, every time you post, your signature can contain a company URL, or simple paragraph about your services.

Have questions? We're here.
