Example of Comment / Community Guidelines
This is an example only. We do encourage you to speak to legal counsel for any concerns or unique situations you have that are not addressed here.
The message here should be engaging, clear and direct as to your expectations of the community standards and what will constitute action.
Be clear with the reader on whether you moderate comments or not, whether you require a use to be logged in to comment -- and why. The why is mostly around keeping the conversation civil and keeping spam robots out of comments.
Here are some links to other publications' comment and community guidelines - some simple, some detailed - which may provide some inspiration as you craft your own:
