Welcome to the Live Science forums!
There are many places to share your thoughts and passion points on the internet, so we’re really glad that you’re here. We want you to enjoy and feel comfortable in our community, so we’d like to present the principles we live and grow by. We’re asking you to spend your valuable time with us, so it’s only fair that we offer you clear insight into what kind of community we’ve built.
Our Core Beliefs
- We ensure the good health and stability of our community by holding each other to a high standard of behavior in these forums.
- Civility is the cornerstone of any healthy community. Our inclusive community enables all to passionately express an opinion without violating our Community standards.
- Our greatest strengths are our differences. Just as muscles grow stronger when faced with resistance, so too do our beliefs. Be open to what others have to say and let this new context help shape your perspective.
- Everyone has stories to relate about experiences that have shaped them as people. Tell us your stories, share your experiences, and help shape a community for the ages.
