CTXPro.com Comments Policy

My name is DJ Eshelman. This is my site. It’s not a democracy, but something I am responsible for maintaining. That said- I want to see the community asking questions, giving comments and helping each other. So, I’ve created a few guidelines to stay within while using this site that my team and I will follow:

  1. Stay on Target… I mean… Topic.
    • Discussions: CTXPro.com is a place to discuss Citrix and general technology related things. Discussions that are off-topic to CTXPro.com will be closed and later deleted.
    • Comments: Comments within a discussion should be related to the original post (“OP”), however, we understand that things may naturally veer in different directions. This is generally not an issue, but if the mods feel a comment chain has reached its limit, we may give a polite notice about being off topic. Arguments over issues occurring on other channels will not be tolerated.
  2. Choose Your Words Wisely. Make comments you think my mom would be okay reading.
    • Please be aware that comments on CTXPro.com are automatically filtered for profanity. This site is used by professionals trying to grow their careers, so the filter is up fairly ‘high’. However, if a comment is caught in the filter and does not contain anything offensive it will need to be freed by a moderator before it will appear in the comments section.
    • Profanity used to insult, antagonize, or inflame will be deleted.
  3. Don’t Be a Jerk.
    • Personal attacks, insults with hostile intent, stalking, harassment, slander, and using offensive speech will not be tolerated.
    • Discussions and comments with the sole purpose of antagonizing or provoking will be removed.
    • Sexist, racist, misogynist, homophobic, and broad, offensive generalizations about groups of people are simply not allowed. This is a community intended to be friendly and open. We simply ask that you be respectful of each other and remain mindful of your audience when making jokes… but err on the side of caution and refrain from jokes if you have a doubt.
  4. Provide Sources for Content That is Not Your Own.

Please provide sources for content that is not your own. If you are posting a news article or if you are referencing another article or discussion in your OP, provide a link to your source. Links to illegal downloads or content are prohibited.

  1. No Spam.

“Spam” is the posting of unsolicited messages, generally advertising a product or service. “Spam” can also be repetitive posting that is meant to be disruptive. Either form of spam is prohibited. Please note that accounts that post advertising spam will be banned without warning.

  1. No Gratuitous Self-Promotion.
    • “Self-promotion” is an attempt to redirect traffic from CTXPro.com to your personal blog, Youtube channel, Disqus channel, etc. All posts with links are subject to moderation and review. Gratuitous Self-promotion will not be allowed, with two exceptions:
      1. (a). “Tutorials” and Feedback: We want to encourage people to share their knowledge about Citrix- so if you would like to post a kind of “tutorial” discussion or series of discussions about the development process, then it only makes sense to include a link to your final product. Keep in mind, we may ask you to add it to our official training pages to be posted here, but we’re pretty flexible in general. Likewise, if you are in the process of developing a script, app, Youtube channel, etc and you are looking for community assistance and feedback, then again you are permitted to share a link to your work in progress as long as you clearly request the community’s opinions and feedback in your OP.
      2. (b). Mod Permission: If you are a friend of the channel*, and any moderator on CTXPro.com has given you permission to promote your game, app, blog, Youtube or Disqus channel, etc., then you are welcome to do so.
    • “Friend of the Channel” means someone who participates on CTXPro.com by commenting regularly and/or starting discussions.
    • If you are just promoting yourself as being better than someone else, even if they don’t participate here- expect your comment to be deleted. If it’s drastic or defamatory- expect to be permanently banned.
  2. English Only.

Discussions and comments posted in languages other than English will be removed. We apologize for the inconvenience. This rule does not apply if you are using another language to make a point or using it colloquially rather than as primary communication. This is not for any reason other than my team does not speak any other language and therefore cannot monitor content effectively. If you are interested in being a translator or approver on my team- please contact us using the contact form on this site!

  1. Keep it “PG”.
    • As Mentioned- this site caters to professionals trying to grow their career. There’s no place for anything that wouldn’t be allowed in a film rated “PG” in the United States.
    • Implied Content will be treated as the same. In other words, abbreviations for cursing or ‘leet’ attempts to bypass profanity filters will be treated the same as if it was profane content. Generally, again use words that would be okay in a PG movie and you’ll be just fine.
  2. Content of Discussions and Duplicate Discussions.
    • Content: Discussions need to provide content and talking points. Have a topic in mind that will spark a conversation, provide your opinion on a subject, and/or present questions for the community to respond to. “Lazy” discussions are frowned upon. For example: “Do you like Citrix?” is not a discussion with merit, but “When do you use PVS over MCS?” is a great discussion. If you are uncertain what is allowed and what isn’t, participate in the community before starting a discussion of your own. The mods reserve the right to close discussions that lack content.
    • Duplicate Discussions: Please take a second to glance at the recent discussions before starting a new OP. If someone has already posted the same discussion within the last few days, the mods reserve the right to close duplicates.
    • Warnings, Deletions, and Bans. Generally, you can expect a warning, and a moderator will request that you review the channel rules before any moderation action is taken. Moderation action may be taken at the mods’ discretion if a user persists in violating the channel rules after a warning is given. This may include deletion of comments. Users who continuously violate the channel rules or purposely disrupt the community may be banned from the channel.
    • Appealing Bans. If you have been banned by a mod, you can request for the ban to be lifted by contacting the channel owner via the comments box or Facebook messenger. Another method is allowed if you have already joined the CTXPro.com Discord or Slack channels (note- you will not be allowed to join a chat channel simply to lodge a complaint- you must have a previous established presence). Discussions started on other channels will not be considered as a request to have your ban lifted. Please be aware that all appeals will be discussed by the entire moderation team before a decision is made.
    • com Discord Server.
      1. Join us on Discord! Here is an invite link:
    • CTXProfessionals Slack Channel.
    • Flagging.

If you see a rule violation, please flag the comment. Comments that are flagged do not get automatically removed. Instead, flagged comments will be marked for a moderator’s review. Flagging comments allows mods to do their job more efficiently and keep the community running smoothly. Please do not flag a comment just because you disagree. If a comment is flagged for review and it is not violating a rule, the comment will be approved.

Thanks again for participating- we look forward to interacting with you!
