I have read and understood the YES’s*

6. Use good judgment. Members of this community are world-wide and we can all learn through shared experience and get new ideas which we can try on our own. However, realize that not everything working for one person may necessarily work for you as the external circumstances may be different. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.
However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of their comments or this community in general. It does not matter what title, level of attainment, or progression through the Master Trainer Program, you are expected to obey by this rule.
7. Be willing to ask questions when you don’t know how to proceed. Lend a helping hand and be willing to share, communicate and answer questions posted by other members even if unsure whether you are right or wrong. Doubts, confusion, and stumbling blocks is common to everybody embarked on this path. Don’t be afraid to share.
If you’re feeling alone or don’t know what to do, share your worries and ask questions. If you’re rejoicing about a successful experience, share that too. Others can learn from it. A willingness to exchange ideas and verbalize your doubts or worries can go a long way toward helping each other. Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor, therefore help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with. Refrain from snapping at people with answers such as “if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.
