10 guidelines we expect users of celebrityslim.com.au's community areas to observe.
These guidelines cover all aspects of community interaction and moderation on celebrityslim.com.au, including forums and comments on blogs, articles, recipes or tips.
The celebrityslim.com.au site provides a growing number of opportunities for people who wish to discuss content we publish, or provide feedback that helps us continue to offer content that is relevant and useful to you. We want to make sure this website is inclusive and safe, and that celebrityslim.com.au is a place where you will always find friendly, inviting and, above all, honest discussions about weight loss and healthy living.
There are 10 simple guidelines that we expect everyone in the community areas of celebrityslim.com.au to abide by. They directly inform our approach to community moderation (detailed below). These apply across the site, while moderation decisions are also informed by the context in which comments are made.
Participants who seriously, persistently or wilfully ignore the community standards, participation guidelines or terms and conditions will have their posting privileges for all celebrityslim.com.au community areas withdrawn. This is not an action that we take lightly or arbitrarily. However, we are aiming to create and maintain an online experience consistent with Celebrity Slim values, and we reserve the right to make decisions which we feel support that. Please be aware that moderators may contact you by email in relation to your participation, especially where an issue comes up in relation to these community standards. Any advice they give/request they make should be adhered to, as our moderators are employed to enforce these community standards and create a constructive environment for everyone who contributes to our site.
We will, when necessary, remove user postings or comments from our forums, articles, tips and recipes posts and blog posts*. If a contribution to celebrityslim.com.au is perceived as breaching the community guidelines set out above, then it will be removed by the Celebrity Slim team, in the interests of keeping community areas of the site appropriate for the vast majority of the people who visit.
(*NB: We will not edit user posts to change the meaning, spelling, or anything else intended by the user. Even if only part of a comment or posting is perceived as breaching the community guidelines, the whole thing may be removed. Also, when a comment or post is removed for any of the reasons above, it is sometimes necessary to delete subsequent messages which refer to explicitly or quote from the original (removed) comment, in order to preserve some notion of conversational thread. This may also happen because a later comment quotes directly the problematic bits of the original comment, which just perpetuates the problem. In such cases not every deletion will be marked individually.)
We reserve the right to take steps or implement measures which we hope will benefit the whole community of celebrityslim.com.au community participants. Because we are ultimately responsible for everything that appears on this site, all actions and decisions taken by our moderators are final. Unfortunately, the huge (and growing) quantity of user content on celebrityslim.com.au means that we can't enter into correspondence regarding specific moderation activity, although all correspondence will be read. If you have suggestions or questions about any aspect of community participation on celebrityslim.com.au, you can write to email@example.com
Please mark all queries clearly in the subject line (e.g. Question about moderation decision on Chicken Soup Recipe page)
