Commenting and posting guidelines

The Sloop John B. reserves the right to review, edit, refuse or delete any comments/blog posts.

Here are some guidelines when it comes to commenting and blogging on this site in order to create a friendly environment:

Think about the tone of your comment:

  • Be polite, friendly, and encouraging.
  • Have some humour, but be careful with sarcasm.
  • If you disagree, don’t be rude about it; give constructive (helpful) feedback.
  • Don’t use bad language.

Think about the content of your comment/post:

  • Keep your comment/post on topic and make sense. If you comment, say something about the original post. If you post a blog post keep it in the right category.
  • If you post an article or a video, make sure that it hasn’t been posted before.
  • Don’t say random stuff or get really silly.
  • Be more formal than you would in real life, but not stuffy.
  • Avoid texting shortcuts like u for you and l8r for later, and only use one emoticon if you need to.
