How commenting and moderating works.
What is SurgeZirc UK’s code of conduct?
A: Community and Commenting Guiding Principles
SurgeZirc UK has a thriving user community and encourages commenting on news stories and blog posts. We are dedicated to maintaining a respectful, engaging and informative conversation. Towards that end, we have basic ground rules for commenting to maintain a civil atmosphere.
These are supported by a moderating system that features a team of staff moderators. If you wish to participate in the community, we ask that you follow the ground rules below and the spirit of the community they seek to create.
(I) If your comments make this community a less civil and enjoyable place to be, you and your comments may be suspended from using the site.
(II) Comments may be pre-moderated.
- To maintain a civil atmosphere, we reserve the right to have our moderation team read comments before they are displayed on the site. Review time can vary depending on the site-wide comment load, so please be patient — we will strive to get to all comments as quickly as possible. Please, do not resubmit the same comment or complain to the moderators assuming it has been deleted as that just adds needless comments to be processed.
(III) We expect you to be yourself only.
- Every person’s opinion is valuable and unique. Pretending to be someone else removes that unique value from you or from others. Don’t misrepresent yourself or others, or spread mis-information. If you do, you will make the community a less enjoyable and valuable place to be and misrepresentation may be removed when we see it.
(IV) Safe platform for everyone.
We strongly believe that SurgeZirc UK should be a safe space for individuals, groups and their ideas. As such, purposefully insulting and hostile language or personal threats are not welcome here. If you directly or indirectly threaten the physical or mental well being of a member of this community, or an individual or group, you may be removed immediately.
If a credible threat is made against an individual or group, not only may it be removed but it is likely that it will be reported to law enforcement agencies and we will cooperate with them to any extent requested. Personally, identifiable information should never be posted to the SurgeZirc UK comments section for the privacy and protection of all community members.
This includes, but is not limited to, full names, addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses. Any comments that contain this information may be deleted
Q: I posted a comment. Why can’t I see it on the site?
A: Please be aware that not all comments may appear immediately on SurgeZirc UK. In some cases, posts must wait for moderator approval before being displayed.
Q: Why do my posts never appear in the SurgeZirc UK comments?
A: If a user has repeatedly posted comments that have violated our rules, their comments may be blocked from appearing on the site. This would include inappropriate comments that contain insults, attacks, abuse towards other users or groups; or users who have engaged in trolling or hijacking the comment section.
