      WELCOME TO THE 5-15 Community Forum!

      You’ll find a vibrant and growing community of smart, enthusiastic people at 5-15. Our goal is to foster conversations that are helpful, informative, and fun. We very much would like you to help us do just that, so here are some guidelines for how to participate.


      We’re so glad you’re here! We hope you will help create great conversations in our community.
      Don’t be rude, troll or antagonize people, or react to antagonism. We’ll remove bad stuff when we see it.

      Respect and help the moderators. It’s a small team of dedicated, caring humans working hard to make things better.


      To join this community you must be a Registered 5-15 Global Energy Associate. To do that, please contact us and register. You may be interested in checking out our privacy policy and Terms of Use if you’re the legalese type.

      The next step is to customize your profile. You can upload a photo and tell everybody a little about yourself. You can always edit your profile by clicking your own name in the upper-left hand corner of the site.


      Post a forum comment: We love comments, and simply by registering you can comment on any topic, discussion or thread. Comments are organized into collapsable threads to make it easy to follow a conversation.


      Here are things that will get your comment or forum post removed and quite possibly get you banned. Note that this is not a comprehensive list. Our moderators reserve the right to remove anything we deem inappropriate.

      Spam: Zero tolerance, of course! If it comes from a human or a robot, spam will be deleted. This includes self-promotion. Generally speaking, promoting your projects here will be treated like any other spam.

      Personal attacks: Don’t attack or insult another user. It’s not helpful and it doesn’t make the forum a friendly place. This includes calling other members trolls.

      Illegal activities: Posting links to illegal downloads, ways to steal service, and other nefarious activity is not OK here.

      NSFW material: Nope, not allowed. Even images or links that could be considered borderline are not acceptable. A good rule of thumb is that anything beyond PG-13 will get you in trouble, but we reserve the right to remove any post we deem offensive. This goes for porngraphic material, vile language, gore and generally gross stuff.

      Racism, sexism, and other discrimination: Attacking entire classes of people is just like attacking a single person: we’ll ban you for it.

      Trolling: “Trolling” is a big, messy term, but we know what trolls are and we won’t tolerate it. If you’re abusing the good conversations here, we will take your comments and posts down. This includes taking a thread off-topic, by the way.

      Multiple accounts and throwaway emails: We don’t allow multiple accounts per user. Using a disposable email address signals to us that you might not be here for the right reasons. You also may not create accounts designed to impersonate another person.

      Cross posting: Don’t make duplicate posts across different forums — it clogs things up and fractures the conversation.

      Complaining about coverage: We cover a wide array of topics, not all of which are easy, comfortable, or reflective of your personal views. This applies doubly to review scores. While we’re not against discussions of our coverage, plainly stated accusations of bias are usually an indication that you’re not trying to be a productive member of the community.

      Above all, our team of moderators works to keep conversation here friendly, engaging, helpful, and productive. If we feel a comment or forum post is harming that endeavor, we’ll take action.

      See any of the above? You can help us out by flagging (more on that below). Any comments that are a reply to spammy / inappropriate / trolling comments will also be deleted with the original comment, so don’t reply — just flag!


      Need to disable your account, request a name change, report a problem? Just get in touch with the moderators via the contact form and they can help you out.
