Welcome to the Khoros Community! The mission of this online community is to provide a peer-to-peer and direct support channel for people cultivating enterprise communities on the Khoros platform. It is a central for education and thought leadership on best practices, where we also ideate with customers directly on how to improve and extend the product platform. Please remember that you may not share your registered account with any other individual, entity, or organization. Enterprise communities are created by business organizations for their customers, partners or other enthusiasts. While our community is aimed at Khoros customers and users, we welcome everyone with an interest in enterprise communities, as long as you observe these community rules:   1. Be respectful. Respect people's time and attention by asking well-thought-out questions and sharing what you've learned so far in your experimentation or prior research. Respect people as individuals by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive.   2. Be relevant. Make sure your contributions are relevant to the mission of the community, to the specific discussion style and topic where you post. Please do not post duplicate messages in different areas of the community to avoid fragmenting discussion. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Solicitations are rarely relevant. If you have something you want members to join, participate in, or buy, ask us first.   3. Keep your word. Don't post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party.   4. Protect privacy - yours and others'. Don't share anything about yourself or your organization that you would not want to see on a road-side billboard. Share your business email address if you wish, but don't post personal information-your own or anyone else's-including contact information or any content that you receive in one-to-one communications without the author's consent.   5. Remember, this is user-generated content. You'll find plenty of good advice here, but remember that your situation, configuration, or implementation may vary from that of the individual sharing a solution. Some advice you find here may even be wrong. Apply the same good judgment here that you would apply to information anywhere on the Internet. By using these forums you agree to follow these rules as well as the full Terms of Service for the Khoros Community. We thank you, and your fellow community members thank you.   The Khoros Logo and Khoros Employees You will notice that some community members have a Khoros logo next to their names, this means they are Khoros employees. Like you, they are members of the community around Khoros products, and we encourage them to share their knowledge and opinions here.   Feedback & Ideas We want this to be the best community it can possibly be - so let us know what you think, or how we can help improve your experience on the Khoros Community by visiting our suggestions forum.   We know you have tons of ideas for improving the Khoros platform, products and services; If you are a customer or partner, be sure to visit customer ideas to submit new feature enhancements requests, or support existing ones (Idea boards for Care and and Community). Don't forget to review our idea submission guidelines before posting!   If you have questions for Khoros that cannot be discussed in the community, please contact: your CSM or Account Executive (if you are a Khoros customer) a Sales Representative by Requesting a Demo (if you're not) email us at communityhelp@khoros.com   We will be happy to help!   Flag inappropriate content for review If you recognize any violation of these guidelines, please notify us within the community by choosing "Report Inappropriate Content" from the message's Options menu and let us know why you feel the content is inappropriate. If you have any questions about our guidelines, terms, or policies, let us know.

There’s an amazing team working on the front lines and behind the scenes of the Khoros Community to provide its members with all the tools and solutions they need to be successful.  You can find out more about some of the core team members below. There are many more who actively assist on the community on a day to day basis, and we'll be adding to this list over time.  Feel free to reach out to any of them any time you have questions, suggestions or just want to say hi! DanCr Director of Information Experience  His teams are responsible for your experience of the Khoros Community, for our product documentation, and for much of the information you see within our applications. Our mission is to make sure that you can connect to the content, conversation, and people you need, wherever you are in our digital ecosystem. If there’s anything we can do to improve your experience of our information, feel free to message him here. AndyK Senior Community Manager When he first joined Khoros in 2008, he was the first person not based in North America working with the company (he is based in Edinburgh, UK). In his spare time he is a gamer, reader, sports fan and (when not injured) enjoys squash, cycling, climbing and hiking. LisaIn Community Program Manager Lisa is passionate about customer service in all its forms and has worked in just about all the different avenues. She  loves helping people and cultivating a positive user experience no matter who the users are.  She also likes video games, movies, comics, books, and obscure references to random TV shows. When she's not inside geeking out to one of the above things she loves cooking, camping, hiking, traveling, and live music. PhilippeM Director, Global Support Customer's are the reason that he's here - he loves hearing from people on the good as well as the bad so we can improve your experience. Outside of work, he spends time with his family (wife & 16 year old), plays video games and enjoys volleyball (beach or indoor) although he hasn't played since tearing his ACL. KathyH Team Lead, Post-Project Services Kathy comes from Texas, where she lives the nice, quiet rural life by herself.  She started with Khoros five years ago and couldn't imagine ever working for another company.  After starting as a moderator, she's worked her way up to Team Lead, a job she loves as she's been involved in such positions since the internet was a thing, working for various gaming forums and companies before joining Khoros. In her spare time she loves any kind of crafting, and has a serious yarn addiction (she promises, just a few more skeins...).  She also loves movies, especially sci-fi and superhero, and is proud to be a Marvel fangirl (although there is a bit of room for DC in there too ha!). AndrisG Moderator & Administrator Andris comes from a small and maybe not so well known Baltic country, and so far seems to be the only person in the team who speaks Latvian. Having experience as a volunteer administrator at some game communities, he joined Khoros in December 2015 as a moderator and can't imagine any better job to do for a living!  In his spare time, he loves to play games, ride a bicycle and and travel - wherever the network connection exists.   ValeriaC Moderator & Administrator V aleria comes from a small city in the South of Italy, but lived abroad for the last 12 years, spending some years in Spain, Greece, and finally landing in the USA. Joined Khoros in 2013 as a moderator for several communities, new addition to the  Khoros Community Team. She loves traveling, learning new languages, literature and animals (especially cats). StevenT Technical Support Team Lead EMEA Steven first started working for Khoros as a Community Moderator back in 2013 and moved on into a support role in 2016. Since then he hasn't been afraid to get his hands dirty with anything the customer requests. He's currently a Team Lead for the EMEA support team and he loves his position. The best part of his day is working with great customers and awesome members of the team! In Steven's spare time he like to watch movies (main aim is to not fall asleep after 5 minutes) and spend time with his family (wife and 3 children) and explore in the English countryside. JohnD Doc Dude John has been in the documentation and content strategy game for over 20 years, since WYSIWYG was a new buzzword. But that's just his day job. He's lived in the San Francisco Bay Area all his life, have been married for 24 years, and has 3 sons.  He is also a huge music fan (with a CD rack with over 2000 CDs and a huge digital library of awesome, rare bootlegs). In his free time he attends A LOT of concerts. He's also a bit of an amateur chef, often baking homemade cookies, waffles, and other treats for the office. SusanH Senior Tech Writer Suzie has been at Khoros since May 2013. She focuses on the developer documentation across our platform, as well as Studio documentation. You'll find her logged in on the Developer Network on most days helping troubleshoot and guide community members to the information they need. She is a Bay Area native, and spent a few years up in Eugene, Oregon. If you ask her, she'll tell you that being outdoors, climbing on rocks, and yoga make life worth living. JamilaR Community Manager  Jamila became a Community Manager for Khoros in May 2019. She has a background in social media and enjoys building and nurturing communities. She also loves watching anime, going to the beach, reading comics, doting over her two cats.

We always place customer feedback at the top of our list of priorities and our Product Ideas boards (Community, JX and Care) are an example of how we capture your innovative ideas and feedback about our solutions. In order to make this process as productive and transparent as possible, we want to share the general criteria by which we will be evaluating submitted ideas to help guide your submissions. We will be evaluating your ideas based on the following criteria and giving feedback accordingly. You can expect to receive feedback on your submission from our Product Management team  in the form of status changes and follow up comments.   Submission Criteria Description 1.      Reach of Impact How many customers would benefit? How often would they use the suggested feature? 2.      Roadmap Fit Does this fit strategically within our current product/service offerings? 3.      Community feedback Is this idea getting noticed (via recent votes/comments/kudos)? Does the idea have at least 5 votes? 4.      Feasibility How long will it take to implement the idea? Is there a workaround available today? 5.      Quality of submission Is the submission well written and easy to understand? Does it contain no more than one idea? 6.      Uniqueness Is this a new idea or something that has been submitted already?   We encourage you to submit your ideas for Community, JX and Care,  to us to help us continually innovate and make the  Khoros solutions better for all of our customers.   Be sure to search the community for existing ideas that may be similar to yours and review our submission guidelines prior to submitting your own. If indeed you do find similar ideas, we encourage to comment or vote on those rather than submitting a new one.
