Welcome to the FluidFM forum

This community is for professionals and enthusiasts of our products and services. Share and discuss the best applications, experiments and new ideas, build your professional profile and become a better researcher together.

Please read the guidelines before participating in this community.

This forum is for FluidFM researchers, both experienced or new to the community. Share and discuss your application questions, experiments and new ideas. Connect with your peers, collaborate and accelerate your research together.


This community is for professional and enthusiast users and partners. You can ask questions about: 

  • FluidFM products & services 

  • how to conduct certain experiments

Before you ask - please make sure to search for a similar question. You can search questions by their title or tags. It’s also OK to answer your own question.  

Please avoid asking questions that are too subjective and argumentative or not relevant to this community.

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of this site and push other questions off the front page. 

To prevent your question from being flagged and possibly removed, avoid asking subjective questions where … 

  • every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?” 

  • your answer is provided along with the question, and you expect more answers: “I use ______ for ______, what do you use?” 

  • there is no actual problem to be solved: “I’m curious if other people feel like I do.” 

  • we are being asked an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ______ happened?” 

  • it is a rant disguised as a question: “______ sucks, am I right?” 

If you fit in one of these examples or if your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here. However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain ______ to me”, then you are probably OK.

Answers should not add or expand questions. Instead either edit the question or add a comment. 

Answers should not comment other answers. Instead add a comment on the other answers. 

Answers shouldn't just point to other questions. Instead add a comment indicating "Possible duplicate of...". However, it's fine to include links to other questions or answers providing relevant additional information. 

Answers shouldn't just provide a link to a solution. Instead provide the solution description text in your answer, even if it's just a copy/paste. Links are welcome but should be complementary to answer, referring sources or additional reading. 

Answers should not start debates; this community Q&A is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding debates in your answers as they tend to dilute the essence of questions and answers. For brief discussions please use commenting facility. 

When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called "karma points". These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust to him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points. 

For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand, if the answer is misleading - it will be downvoted. 

The goal of this site is to create a relevant knowledge base that would answer questions related to FluidFM. 

Therefore, questions and answers can be edited like wiki pages by experienced users of this site in order to improve the overall quality of the knowledge base content. Such privileges are granted based on user karma level: you will be able to do the same once your karma gets high enough.

In order to increase the quality of the questions and reduce the level of spam on the forum, a minimum karma level is required in order to start your first actions on this forum (asking a question, answering a question, commenting or voting) 

As a new user, you can obtain an initial karma level by verifying your email address using the link that will appear for you on the start page of the forum.
