Knugget is a tool for personal knowledge management that fosters maximum knowledge retention with minimal effort. To achieve that, knugget builds on a network of people who share what they deem knowing worthwhile. A knugget account enables you to create content and publicly share it if you like.
With these community guidelines we want to make sure that you understand how we do things on knugget. We are more than happy to have you as long as you stick to the guidelines – otherwise you risk making other users feel uncomfortable. As proud hosts, we cannot tolerate that.
Please note that by creating a user account for knugget, you agree to the Community Guidelines and Terms of Service.
Respect! When you engage with other users, treat them the way you want to be treated. On knugget we want to nurture a diverse community as we strongly believe that sharing a wide variety of thoughts, ideas and perspectives enriches everyone’s lives. Other users might hold different opinions and have different backgrounds: always treat them with due respect and be polite.
knugget is not to be the place, where everyone copies paragraphs from books and blogarticles into. We encourage you to engage with each idea, contextualize it and wrap it in your own words. This has two V E R Y important upsides: You don’t infringe anyone’s copyrights (which we strongly advise you against) and it is by far the best way to make knowledge stick (which we strongly encourage you to do). So, if you have a thought that might be worth having in a year or two, take a minute to write it down in your words.
Knowledge is like food: it is much more fun when it is enjoyed together! There are unlimited things that can be broken down into knuggets, shared and refined with a community of like-minded people. Knowledge is fun, because it helps you be better at what you do – let knugget be the place where you share your high spirits.
How would you like it, if someone took your hard work and made it publicly available without telling you? Would probably feel pretty sh*t, right? Refrain from copy & pasting content that isn’t yours. Below you can see how to correctly cite from a source.
There is enough hate and contempt on this planet, even more so on social media. Knugget is a constructive place where productive insights are shared. We do not tolerate and will delete racist and sexist ideas, theories, thoughts, jokes and content in general.
We do not tolerate the harassment of users, insults or intimidations of any kind. Do not create content or post comments that contain hatred. We do not compromise in protecting individuals or groups from attacks regarding, among other things, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, disability, diseases, age, sexual orientation, gender, and gender identity. This includes no tolerance for the promotion of self-injurious behavior.
Spam will not be tolerated by us under any circumstances. Don’t do it.
