Safety Advice[edit]

Warning: Be careful what you say, especially in public places that are archived!

What is said may reveal personal information such as:

  • Location / IP Address.
  • Personality.
  • Skills, Aims, Goals.
  • Personal Details.
  • ...

To keep the IP address hidden, visit these websites anonymously over Tor, using either the Kicksecure or Tor from The Tor Project. To delink questions from an existing email or OpenID, it is advisable to create a separate email address, OpenID, and user name/s just for this purpose.

Be careful with the advice received from public places. Always get a second opinion and do not run commands or perform steps which you do not understand. Never post any custom code or output that pertains to your system or onion service specifically.

General Advice[edit]

Info Tip: Please kindly avoid inventing new or idiosyncratic terminology whenever appropriate as this causes confusion. For example, please do not substitute "Debian testing repository" with "Debian test repository".

Self Support First Policy[edit]

The Kicksecure team is promoting the "Self Support First Policy". It is a policy, usually employed by small open source teams with limited resources. It means utilizing all of your options from public sources first, then search engines, already existing content and answers, then sources inside the and only then consider reaching out in the forum and through direct support.

Details on Self Support First Policy

Visit Self Support First Policy for a full explanation of this policy. Selected Details:

  1. Self support is often easier and more effective than suspected. It saves the user time and helps the developer team concentrate on improving the product
  2. Please Use Search Engines And See Documentation First and read the FAQ. Most questions have already been answered.
  3. Use the Kicksecure internal search engine and external search engines like DuckDuckGo and Startpage which the additional keyword "Kicksecure".
  4. Search the Kicksecure User and issue tracker for the problem.
  5. If possible, search for a solution without the Kicksecure-specific part of the question, as it may have been answered in mainstream Linux fora.
  6. Check if the problem can be replicated in vanilla operating system environments like bookworm, Xfce.
  7. See General Advice.
  8. See documentation introduction, user expectations, footnotes and references.
