Please Read - Posting in Blogs

Zarcon posted 21st of May 2010 in Community Voice. 14 comments.

All,

Please be aware of the rules and regulations when it comes to posting blogs. Blogs are not meant for promotions of any kind whether it be:

- New products

- Advertising your site

- Any other "off topic" discussions outside of material that can be associated with Boonex Products.

If you are unclear on "what" material you can post in the blogs, you are prompted to read the rules even BEFORE you post, so instead of clicking OK, take a moment to read them.

You can also find the rules by clicking your name in the member bar at the bottom, then click Rules. Thank you for your understanding.

UPDATE: I am still seeing blog posts that are not adhering to the rules posted by Boonex. If you are wanting to ask questions regarding "How do I", "Where can I", or "Look at this", post them in their appropriate places in the forums. So if you have blog osts like this, please remove them. Thanks.

I used to get annoyed by things that didn't belong here. Now I just don't give a rat's ass. Seriously... I'd rather read some spam blog that shouldn't be here, than some mindless babble about how someone is overcoming all the pricks on this site.

i expect boonex should bother less in moderation than releasing D7.1
still, promoting products, services and offensive blogs can be moved to "off-topic" blog than deletion

@ HL - I do understand your point. Some of it can be humorous at times. When it boils down to it, what will happen is exactly what happened yesterday. A member posted a topic about a product, which seemed harmless enough. Another member decided to post a complaint and report it for advertising their site. Several posts were made after that with "if they can do it, then we all can do it" along with some negative remarks to the poster. Within minutes another blog was created by a different see more member talking about selling their product.

So, instead of having the blogs filled with advertisements or spam, I decided to remove them. Before you know it, you would have pages and pages of promotions and advertisement, that we wouldn't be able to find what really could be considered "valuable information". Then all the members would be talking about how Moderators should be taking this stuff down, how we are not doing our jobs, etc. So just trying to lay the expectations down before that happens.

@tomakali - I have no affiliation with Boonex on how/when Dolphin is developed. I am just a member who has been promoted to Moderator. At this time, there is no "off-topic" blog section.

I think people should have to pass a psychiatric evaluation before being permitted to post in the blogs. This would cut out a lot of the things you see posted here.

@houstonlively: You just want me to stop blogging, don't you?

* Dangers of Incoherent Internet Usage *

"Internet forums and blog comments tend to fill with the obscurest possible attempts at verbal communication. Many posts are so indescribably incoherent that they are rarely intelligible even to the architect of the verbal potpourri himself."

blog (a contraction of the term "web log")[1] is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog see more combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (Art blog), photographs (photoblog), videos (Video blogging), music (MP3 blog), and audio (podcasting). Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.

As of December 2007, blog search engine Technorati was tracking more than 112,000,000 blogs

Unity Blogs are designed for publishing your ideas, reviews, thoughts, news, etc. Blogs are not meant to engage users to participate in discussion. We have Forums for discussions. When in doubt, just think of it is if there's no "comments" functionality. Oh, and Unity Rules still apply.
