The Stitch Discussion Forums are where members from all over the Stitch community come together to discuss topics of interest.
The Forums page on Stitch can be found by:
- Selecting Community from the top menu
- Selecting Discussions in the submenu
The main forum page will show you a list of the discussions, along with the profile pictures of the Stitch members who started the discussions, as shown below.
The most popular discussions are shown at the top of the page, while the rest of the discussions are ordered by when the most recent comment was made.
If you select a discussion, you will open the discussion details page, as shown below:
To join the conversation, just type your comment and press the Post Comment button at the top of the page.
When you post a comment, you will be automatically set to Follow the discussion. Following a discussion means you receive email notifications about any responses that other members make in the discussion.
This can be turned off by selecting the Stop Following link at the top of the comments section, as shown below.
Creating a New Discussion
From the main forum page, select the red Post new button at the top of the page.
Please note you can only create new discussions once you've participated in the forums and received at least three "likes". This helps ensure you've spent enough time to understand how the forums work before you create new global discussions.
These three upvotes could be from three different people who have upvoted one of your comments, or it could be from three different people who have upvoted your comments from multiple different forums.
If you keep making positive contributions to discussions, you'll get there in no time!
Stitch Community Guidelines
When participating in the Stitch Forums, it is essential that you understand and follow the Stitch Community Guidelines. The guidelines can be found at the following link:
Please ensure you familiarize yourself with the guidelines, and report any comments which you feel are out of line with the behavior expected in the Stitch community.
If you see a comment which is a clear breach of the Stitch Community Guidelines, by exhibiting one of the behaviours prohibited by the community, you can report it to the Stitch support team. To report a comment:
- Select the three round buttons to the right of the comment, as shown in the image below
- Select Report comment
- Please tell us your reason for reporting this comment. When finished, select Done
You won't want to report many comments as inappropriate. More often, you'll want to give some gentle feedback about whether the comment makes a positive or negative contribution to the community, and is an example of the behaviors all members are expected to exhibit.
You can do this by using the Rate this comment buttons above the comment:
- Select the Like "♡" button if you think the comment makes a positive contribution to the community
- Select the Dislike "☹" button if you don't agree with the comment, or dislike the sentiment it expresses
- Select the Flag "⚐" button if you think the comment exhibits one or more of the discouraged behaviors outlined in the Community Guidelines
Comments which have been flagged but not yet reviewed by Stitch community moderators will show in yellow. Comments which have been flagged and reviewed by Stitch community moderators will show in red.
Please note that if your comments are flagged by more than 6 separate members in a single discussion you may be temporarily or permanently suspended from that discussion. So please familarize yourself with the Community Guidelines and make sure you always treat others with kindness and respect!
