Wondering why it says "I'm new here" next to your name? Or how about the best ways to follow the content you care most about? All of that is covered in our handy FAQ page. In addition, if you're wondering how to write the type of question that's more likely to get a response, check out Thomas Schlegel's post.
This thread highlights how to go from dipping your toe in here to making the community an integral part of your day — with opportunities to learn, network and grow your career.
We've outlined some guardrails that help define what it means to be a good citizen of the community — long story short: be nice and participate often.
Your experience here will be much more rewarding if you're watching the topics and threads that matter most to you. Check out our list of best practices, which outlines how best to personalize your feed and manage notifications. Pro tip: Some of our most noteworthy tags are community-release-notes (what's new and/or updated around here), friday-fun (ease into the weekend by answering prompts from fellow members) and miscellaneous-monday (random topics to jump-start your week).
Tags help organize content into buckets, but if they go unchecked, can become unwieldy and counterproductive. Read how a group of Leaders helped reduce the number of tags from 20,000 to 5,200, and how you can help us win the war of the tags.
While article writing used to be limited to Atlassian team members and Community Leaders, we've now opened it up to other active contributors! Another helpful resource for writing articles or posts is our voice and tone guide.
We call them happy little circles, other people call them badges. Either way, you collect them through your activity on the community, and, well, you've gotta catch 'em all.
As a result of COVID-19, virtual events now make up a large portion of our Community programming — with geography no longer a barrier, you can attend events that interest you based on topic. See all upcoming events here.
Our most knowledgable and enthusiastic Community members have the opportunity to join our Community Leaders program, a group of volunteer experts who dedicate time to answering questions, writing articles, hosting events, or all of the above! In exchange for their efforts, they receive free vouchers for certification exams, access to our internal teams, swag, and much more.
Partners and vendors play an important role in the Atlassian Community. If you are one, we just ask that you be super explicit about it and be as helpful as possible without being overly promotional. Dig into a few more details on the guidelines page.
