Welcome!

We are excited you are here in our "neighborhood." Allow me to be your tour guide as we take a look around the community!

Categories

We call our community categories "Neighborhoods" - and there are many to explore! This is how we organize the content in our community.

Tags

Tags are a secondary method we use to organize and sort content in the community. Think of it like you're assigning a "theme" to your content.

If you don't see a tag that you would like to use, let us now by posting on this discussion!

Badges

The more you do, the more badges you earn! You will earn sweet digital badges as you engage in the community. (e.g. give WOWs, comment, etc.) These actions earn you points and points earn you stuff.

Be on the look out for opportunities to earn custom badges in the future like participating in a community campaign or contest! Lurking will only get you so far here, and no one wants a lurker for a neighbor. 😉

How to Act

Be sure to check out our Community Participation Guide! It has guidelines on how to be the best neighbor, and explains what kind of behaviors won't be tolerated. If you feel someone isn't following the guide, flag it for us and we'll check out the situation.

Community How Tos

Step 4: Jot down what's on your mind in the body of the discussion

More tips on how to use the community like a Pro:

  • Use the reactions. These let you share how you feel about other’s comments. The most liked content shows up on the [Best Of](/bestof) page.
  • Mention others. Put an @ symbol before the username to mention someone. They’ll get notified when you do.
  • Update your notification preferences. You’ll receive a notification if someone mentions you or posts to a discussion that you’ve bookmarked. You can set notifications from the Edit Profile page.
  • Send messages. You can private message members by going to your inbox, or visiting their profile page (click their username anywhere).
  • Don’t want to see everyone’s signature? You can hide signatures by going to Edit Profile > Signature Settings.
  • Check out the community from your mobile phone. Just go to the community URL in your browser - no need to download an app.
  • Want to embed a YouTube video, a Pinterest Pin or a Tweet? Just paste in the link. Vanilla will handle the embedding for you!
  • Check out what’s going on with other community members on the [Activity](/activity) page.

*Note: We will be continuously adding to this section as FAQs about using the community come up!
