This is your portal to the OWNWP Slack group. The concept is to learn by participation within a chat network environment and contribute when possible.
Members typically focus on WordPress web design/development or other online related freelance business growth. The group does not provide support for particular products or resources in any official capacity, but rather, they share information they have learned and experiences they have had.
It is your responsibility to be responsible for your own due diligence.
The group is open and available 24/7/365!
There are no prerequisites required to be an OWNWP Slack group member, however, you should be willing to abide by some simple guidelines. All members should also feel comfortable enough to request any conversation be terminated or moved to a private conversation at any time.
No Profanity - We are a “family friendly” group. Consider using emoticons to express things that are best left unsaid.
Respect Differences - Be understanding and tolerant to people with different personal opinions, temperaments or imperfections. Remember, their morals and values are as important to them, as yours are to you. It’s OK to disagree or express dissatisfaction but do so tactfully. At the same time, if you recognize a conversation that might be considered offensive, request the conversation be terminated or moved elsewhere.
Create a Safe Environment - This group was started as a safe place where people can learn and help others. Consider moving long, one-on-one conversations to a direct message type of conversation (you might even be able to use it for a post on your site or in the forum to help others later). Connect individually with others in the group and network.
Be Professional - Build your trust and authority in the group. Avoid sharing improper information within as well as outside of the group.
The bottom line is to always treat others the way YOU would like to be treated (not how you think or feel they may be treating you).
