If you have a moment, I’d like to make a quick note regarding comments.
As you know, we moderate every comment that goes up on the site. Generally we’re pretty relaxed. We read what you say and, as long as you’re not saying something libellous or totally offensive, we click the approve button.
Moving forward though, we’re going to be a little bit tougher. Approvals will still remain at our discretion, case-by-case, but gratuitous obscenities, personal insults, and excessive stupidity will be frowned upon. Talking about pirating games probably isn’t a smart move either.
Most of you probably won’t even notice anything is different, but some of you may notice your comments not appearing. If that’s you in the latter group, just have a think about why your comment didn’t get approved.
We just want to ensure the Kotaku AU community is a friendly place and home to plenty of thoughtful, constructive and – yes – lively debate. At some point in the not-so-distant future I’ll be introducing a weekly prize for the best comment or commenter. But more on that soon.
