Channel Rules

All channels follow the guidelines found in the UQAttic Community Code of Conduct.

The following rules apply to both #attic and #attichelp:

  • No flooding: do not repeatedly send identical or junk text. If you need to paste bulk text (e.g. code), use the EAIT Pastie Service or Pastebin.
  • Treat people with basic respect: don't troll or otherwise be disruptive. Pretty simple.
  • Do not spam: please do not send unsolicited advertising. For example, if you want to get people in the UQAttic community involved in something you're doing, come and have a chat about it first then send a link if anyone's interested.

#attichelp has some additional rules and guidelines specific to it:

  • Stay on-topic: this channel is for assignment, study, and degree help only. It's okay if a help topic brings up a few lines of related discussion, but take anything beyond that to #attic.
  • Don't PM a helper unless they tell you to: instead, keep the discussion in the channel. This helps to preserve transparency and may help others who are having the same problem.
  • Be patient: most users try to assist others wherever they can, but don't take it personally if someone doesn't immediately rush to your aid. Helpers might be busy with their own commitments, and they are not obliged to constantly provide assistance. Course staff (if they choose to join the channel) are also not under any obligation to help.
Course Docs

Our Course Docs service can help you revise for those upcoming exams, via collaboration with other students.
