    The Nerdwork Community provides a safe space for Nerdwork users to learn more, seek feedback, obtain peer support, etc.

    Anyone who uses Nerdwork or is looking to become a creator, a teacher, a freelancer or just a user of any of our products may use this space.

    To help you get the most of the Nerdwork Community, please review our Code of Conduct.

    Adhering to the Code of Conduct in combination with the Community Guidelines can help avoid your posts being marked as spam or your account being banned.

    Search first

    The Nerdwork Community is a hub of information. We recommend performing a search for your question before posting a new topic as you might find a solution for your question.

    When searching, look to see if a solution was provided and remember to like the solution if it helped.

    Stay on topic and avoid posting on older topics

    • Avoid posting on unrelated topics
    • When in doubt, make a new topic

    Instead of responding to an older topic that hasn’t received any updates in several months, consider making a new topic and referencing the older topic within.

    If you are providing a possible solution you must tailor your reply to explain why the suggestion is a solution to the question asked.

    Be Authentic, and Helpful

    Being authentic in the Community means tailoring every reply to be unique. Ensure you add value to each post, and provide information based on the context the poster has provided.

    Do not claim that you are a Nerdwork Expert/Partner (Jonin) unless you have been granted the appropriate rank within the Nerdwork Community as well. Impersonating Nerdwork Staff by saying you work for Nerdwork, you are a Nerdwork “Guru” or “Advisor” is prohibited.

    Be mindful of promoting a service you are offering as it can be seen as spam. If you believe your service is a possible solution to a user’s question, then you will need to tailor your reply to explain why. Be transparent whether or not you charge for those services as well.

    Offering a solution that only directs users away from the Community such as an affiliate link, or promoting another blog doesn’t add value to the Community.

    A simple, “I can help, contact me here” type of post may be removed by the Shopify Community team. To prevent this, add value to your reply by explaining how you might be able to help them.

    After some discussion, and if what the user is asking for is very customised, then you can suggest they contact you by saying something along the lines of:

    “If you’d like to discuss this more, don’t hesitate to send me a PM.”

    If you’d like to include your contact information then add social media icons to your profile instead of adding your contact information to your reply. Contact information included in a reply (i.e. Freelance links, email, whatsapp, skype, phone number, etc.) is considered spam and will be removed from the Community.


    Spam doesn’t provide any value to the Community and will not be tolerated. The list below outlines the most common behaviours that are deemed spam. This is not an exhaustive list:

    • Unsolicited mentions, and mentioning Shopify staff in topics they have not participated in
    • Promoting a third-party website/blog that has no relevance to the Shopify Community
    • Copy-pasting the same topic, or reply across a number of boards
    • Posting generic promotional spots for products, or services
    • Sending unsolicited private messages
    • “Contact me” only replies

    Report posts containing abuse, harassment, or spam content

    If you spot abuse, harassment, or content that could be considered spam, then please let our Community team know so we can review it. We appreciate your help in keeping our community a safe space.

    Gaming the system / coordinated posting tactics

    Don’t abuse likes, solutions, or ranking features found within the Community such as creating multiple accounts and/or colluding with others on likes/solutions.

    Don’t create posts with the intent of having a specific user or one of your other accounts provide a solution.

    Moderation in the Community

    Moderators at Nerdwork have the responsibility of monitoring the Community and enforcing the Code of Conduct and Community Guidelines. To enforce these policies, some actions that can and will be taken by Moderators include:

    • Editing or removing topics and replies
    • Temporarily banning access to your account
    • Permanently banning access to your account

    In most situations, Moderators will provide warnings via e-mails before banning a user from their account.
