SHS Global Comment Policy

SHS Global Comment Policy

So, we’re going to enable the comments section of “Andy’s Blog.” Most of the posts are press releases or authorized articles for release and cool industry videos. In most cases, SHS is not the original author of the content in the posts; Andy probably just copy and pasted something he thought was cool and posted it on "Andy's Blog." If you find a post interesting or thought provoking, and have a pertinent comment you would like to share, fell free to post. Well see how this goes. If it gets messy, the comment section will be turned off. The following was copied, paraphrased, possibly plagiarized, and posted below.

Keep it civil aka don’t be a jerk

We might get into some heated discussions and that’s okay. These discussions often entail topics that we all personally care a lot about and will passionately defend. But in order for discussions to thrive here, we need to remember to comment on equipment or ideas, not Companies or People

So, remember to avoid:

  • name-calling
  • ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content.
  • knee-jerk contradiction

Comments that we find to be hateful, inflammatory, or harassing may be removed. If you don’t have something nice to say about another user, don't say it. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.

Always strive to add value to news story or product item you’re commenting on.

Before joining in a discussion, browse through some of the most recent and active discussions happening in the community, especially if you’re new there.

If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

Keep it Cool

Help make moderators’ lives easier by taking a moment to ensure that what you’re about to post is related to the gear or news story. That means:

  • don’t post off-topic comments or discussions
  • don’t cross-post the same thing multiple times

If you see something, say something

Moderators are at the forefront of combatting spam, mediating disputes and enforcing community guidelines and, so are you. 

If you see an issue, 
contact the moderators if possible or flag any comments for review. If you believe someone has violated the Basic Rules, report it to Andy’s SHS Global Blog by flagging the user's profile.
