New to Whaleoil? Unsure of the rules? Scared to comment?

The Whaleoil Moderation team

Mod and admin enquiries:

First of all, I want to warmly welcome all the many new readers of Whaleoil that have come on board recently. Some of you have started commenting and that is fantastic but we would really appreciate it if you would read this post and take the opportunity to get your questions answered.

The team at Whaleoil has done its best to make the rules as clear as possible, but we have to be flexible too, as things are constantly changing. We realise that some of our rules are a little fuzzy around the edges. We also realise that this may make new readers of Whaleoil hesitant to comment because they are unsure of exactly where the boundaries lie and because our mods are a formidable team.

Our solution to this problem is a Mod and Admin enquiries regular post. The moderation team put their heads together and decided that this regular post will act as a resource for all readers and commenters who have questions about moderation and who want guidance on what is acceptable and what is not.

Whaleoil quiz: Commenting rules

The holiday is over: The Mods are back & they mean business

Whaleoil is officially back from holiday now and Nige and the rest of the moderation team have asked me to warn readers old and new that it is time to read the rules and the ten commandments.

The golden rule of commenting is that

Each comment should:

  • be on the topic of the post
  • add information, a point of view or a contribution of some substance and
  • be respectful and do no harm to others.

Standards have slipped over the holiday period and some commenters need to lift their game.

Commenting here is a privilege, not a right. Comments can and will be deleted without warning. Depending on your history a comment can earn you a short term or permanent ban without warning.

If you want to comment here please read the rules and ensure that you are adding value to the blog.

Diary of Cambo the Camo cat

By the time the meeting of the Cat-a-holic Society had come to an end a decision had been made by all the feline attendees.
