Myanmar Network Moderation Guidelines

Moderation Guidelines

Myanmar Network aims to encourage vibrant discussions amongst our online community, of all backgrounds and beliefs, about the important issues affecting our communities.

It is to be expected that individual users of this site will sometimes disagree with one another. We just ask that everybody keeps the conversation constructive and civilised. And of course, we require you to obey the laws of Myanmar.

Myanmar Network monitors all posts and reserves the right to remove any comment which breeches any of our Moderation Guidelines as expressed in a nutshell directly below, and in full below that.

We just simply say to practice good manners and a bit of common sense.
If you wish to alert Myanmar Network site administration to a comment you believe breeches our Moderation Guidelines please email us with "report as offensive" in the subject header. This will bring it to our attention for review.

Myanmar Network reserves the right to our final decision whether to remove or allow any material on this website.

If you have any questions about our guidelines, contact enquiries@mm.britishcouncil.org


Myanmar Network's Moderation Guidelines summary

We encourage your comments and welcome constructive and civilised debates. We ask that all users adhere to the spirit of respectful dialogue.

Myanmar Network monitors all posts and reserves the right to remove any comment which breeches our moderation guidelines. Please don't post a comment which is threatening, discriminatory, slanderous, libelous, spam, advertising, uses offensive language or is wildly irrelevant.


Myanmar Network's Moderation Guidelines in Full

Threats

Statements which are threatening or abusive will not be tolerated.

Discrimination

Discriminatory remarks are unacceptable; this includes, but is not limited to, racism, sexism or homophobia.

Slander & Libel

Don't make false or malicious claims about other people or organisations.

Spam

All comments are filtered through spam filtering technology. The technology isn't perfect, so a human being makes a final decision on the appropriateness of all contributions.

Advertising

Myanmar Network is an independent, not-for-profit discussion platform for the community. Talking about your business or industry is fine, hawking your goods and services is NOT.

Offensive Language

Please don't swear. We really don't want to have to remove any comments with valuable ideas because of foul language. Different people have different opinions about what constitutes offensive language and Myanmar Network will review offensiveness based on severity and context in each particular instance.

Relevance

While we appreciate wide-ranging discussions, we'd like to avoid derailed threads. Please don't engage in "trolling" (trying to cause trouble in an online forum just for the sake of it).

Anonymity

Pseudonyms are fine, but don't impersonate another person or use an alias to agree with yourself.

Privacy

In addition to being mindful of your own, please always consider and respect other people's privacy.

Web Links

You are welcome to include links to material on other websites that are relevant to your comment. Myanmar Network administrators check these links and reserve the right to remove any which lead to material reasonably considered offensive in line with these moderation guidelines.

Illegal Activity

Do not use this website to conduct any illegal activity or solicit the performance of any illegal activity.

Intellectual Property

Do not publish another person's intellectual property without their written and express consent. The intellectual property of all material published on this website remains with the author. Any material published on this website may be reproduced only with the following acknowledgment:

"Originally authored by (insert name of author) and published on Myanmar Network (www.myanmar-network.net) here (embed hyperlink to corresponding page of Myanmar Network) on (insert date published on Myanmar Network)".

Widgets

Do not attempt to upload the coding for any device designed to effect the functionality or operation of this site or its servers or the functionality or operation of any users' computer systems (for example, by transmitting a computer virus or other harmful component, whether knowingly or not).

Uniqueness

Comments must be submitted by individually registered users. Myanmar Network is designed to allow individuals to express their unique points of view. Myanmar Network asks that organisations do not petition their members to automatically submit pre-prepared identical responses, such as the words of a petition, as excessive repetition impedes the conversational flow of a forum.

Moderation

Myanmar Network's normal practice is to allow user's comments to be published automatically in real time. Occasionally we may host particular forums in which comments are pre-moderated. On these occasions it will be clearly identified on the affected pages and you will be notified that pre-moderation has been enabled when posting a comment.

In the event Myanmar Network does remove a comment due to a breach of our Moderation Guidelines the author will be notified by email. If this happens to you, please feel free to post a new comment that expresses your point of view whilst keeping our Moderation Guidelines in mind. Serious and repeat offenders will have their user registration blocked.
