Quantopian and its forums were created with the intention of providing access to an industry that has traditionally been highly secretive. We strive to make Quantopian and quant finance available to everyone. Over the years, we have moderated the forums with the goal of keeping community discussion high quality, friendly, collaborative, and informative. Today, we published a code of conduct to more clearly communicate our expectations for community behavior in the forums.
You shouldn't expect anything to change. Collectively, we have been following this code for years. This is just the first time we are communicating our moderation practices in public in order to better set expectations.
We are extremely grateful for the thousands of community members who contribute in different ways, every day. You collaborate with, learn from, and teach one other on a daily basis and we look forward to seeing that continue.
Thank you for your continued time and energy.
The Quantopian Team
