Some categories are not displayed on the homepage, but they are easily accessible via the Categories page. This is because the goal of this forum is to focus on discussions about the Safe Network. Therefore the following categories are not displayed on the homepage:

  • Cybersecurity: Topics about news, blog posts, videos and presentations that relate to cybersecurity.

  • Related Projects: Topics about apps and projects that don’t use the Safe Network, but that are related to the Safe Network in some way (e.g. projects that focus on privacy, security and freedom).

  • Meta: For bug reports, suggestions, complaints, discussions about moderation and other questions that are specific to this forum or to the Discourse forum software, please use the meta category. You can also contact the moderators directly by sending a private message to “moderators”. And if you spot a reply or a topic that is not in line with the forum guidelines, please flag it.

  • Off-topic: Topics about politics, philosophy and anything else.

  • Local: Topics where discussion in other languages is allowed.

  • Uncategorized: Topics that don’t need a category, or don’t fit into any other existing category. We try to avoid having topics in this category, but if you are not sure what category to use, just leave your topic uncategorized and a moderator will move it to the appropriate category (if there is one).
