About the Platform

INDOPACT Platform Overview

The IndoPact Community platform is built on Discourse and operates like other social platforms such as LinkedIn in that you can:

• Scroll through topics and posts (ordered from most recent)
• Like, Comment, or Reply to posts.
• Tag people using “@”
• Use Emoji

Actions and Reactions

There are action buttons at the bottom of each post: • Link: Grab a copy-pasteable (permalink) link to any reply or topic via the **link** button. • Flag: f, know abouUse the button to reveal more actions: **Flag** to privately let the author, or the site staft a problem. • Edit: To edit your post, if possible. **Bookmark** to find this post later on your profile page:


There is also a Quote function, where you can highlight the text, you wish to quote, right click on your mouse, and select Quote. When you quote someone, the text will point to the original source. There is no need to quote a whole message: it helps to be specific. Repeat this for multiple quotes even from different posts and different users. The quoted text will point to their original source.


Your drafts are automatically saved as you write. If you minimise the editor or navigate to a different topic, the editor might disappear. To open a draft, return to the topic you were replying to or click the highlighted bar at the bottom of your browser, and the editor will reappear with your draft.


When someone is talking directly to you – by replying to you, quoting your post, mentioning your @username, or even linking to your post – a blue number will immediately appear over your profile picture at the top right.
