Participation Principles 

To keep the information on this site safe and friendly for all users, we’ve provided some simple guidelines to keep in mind when you are submitting your feedback, stories, articles or information via the various submission mechanisms on this site.

Information submitted on this site is assessed for its relevance, validity and appropriateness for the site. While we aim to publish as much information that is submitted as we can, we will not publish feedback or information that:

  • Uses language or express ideas that are harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory or obscene
  • Is racially, sexually, ethnically or otherwise objectionable
  • Makes a personal attack at a named individual – feel free to question opinions or ideas, just not people
  • Is illegal
  • Is deemed to be spam
  • Makes any false claim to represent a person or organisation

While we try to publish all submissions we receive, sometimes we won’t be able to include absolutely everything (especially if it flaunts the above guidelines!) and we don’t respond to every submission individually. Submitting your feedback, article or information does not guarantee its publication on the site.
