Welcome to Yes Crowd!


Yes Crowd is a forum for Optus customers to ask questions, help and support other Optus customers, find answers to product & service questions, and to share ideas and learnings with others.


The Yes Crowd team manage and moderate Yes Crowd and will jump in occasionally with answers or suggestions, but really the community is for you, our Optus customers. The more you put into the community, the more you will get out of it. Join Now and start a conversation!


We want you to join the conversation, but before you do, here are some guidelines outlining the Yes Crowd Do’s and Don’ts.


The Do’s

  • Be respectful and courteous of others. Respect the fact that everyone has different opinions. Debates should be healthy and not offensive
  • Be relevant to the topic on the board or thread
  • Provide as much information as you can in your post. It’s more helpful and you could get Kudos for a really helpful post
  • Protect the privacy of yourself and others
  • Say thank you when you’ve had a good experience. You can also reward people with Kudos!
  • Follow the Optus Terms of Service
  • Report abuse to the Yes Crowd team
  • You will need to join Yes Crowd to submit a comment or question
  • We welcome your involvement and contributions to intelligent and appropriate discussions
  • Contact Customer Support if you need to talk through a particular Optus product or service problem that you can’t get resolution from in the forum
  • Stay on topic. If you have something to discuss that’s not related to the thread you’re on, create a new post


The Don’ts

  • There a few things on the forum you shouldn’t do, such as:
  • Use threatening or rude language on the forum
  • Disrespect people’s privacy
  • Disclose confidential information
  • Post information that is: threatening, bullying, abusive, defamatory, indecent, harassing, offensive, infringes any person’s intellectual property rights, including copyright, impersonates anyone, misrepresents a relationship with any person or organisation, encourages others to commit unlawful acts, harasses anyone or is unlawful in any way
  • Post repetitive messages
  • Make negative comments about the moderation process. The Yes Crowd team’s decision will be final
  • Use ALL CAPS. Shouting on the forum will not be tolerated
  • Disclose any personal details (like account numbers, passwords or email addresses) on the forum
