General Forum Rules
The goal of the Gleeble Community Forum is to help Gleeble users connect with each other and to share knowledge and experiences. The “Gleeble Community” consists of current and past users of Gleeble Systems and other systems built by Dynamic Systems Inc. (DSI). The Gleeble Community may also include researchers, administrators, students, corporate partners, potential customers, and vendors that have an interest in Gleeble Systems. Portions of the forums may also be open and available to the public. Information and images posted to the forum may be used by DSI for internal or promotional purposes.
Please note: While DSI attempts to limit access to portions of the forums to members of the “Gleeble Community”, users should note that as the community grows it is possible that users outside of this community may gain access. There should be no expectations of confidentiality on the forums. Please do not share sensitive information on the forums. Dynamic Systems Inc. is not responsible for information that is shared on these forums.
DSI reserves the right to edit, move, remove and moderate posts as needed to clarify posts and maintain usability and accuracy for users. Moderators may include internal DSI staff as well as members of the extended Gleeble Community.
