Rules For Posting Comments on This Blog
This is a moderated blog to discuss anything genealogy-related: general how-to’s (would love your input), Acadian and Cajun history, Louisiana history, language, culture, music & cuisine, DNA discussions, traditions & folklore, family trees, programs such as Ancestry, Family Search, etc., and all other discussions relating to family history.
In addition to my side of the family, we will discuss my husband’s Eastern European German-Hungarian side. Also, since we have some lines which do not fit in that category, we’ll have a few discussions about Irish ancestors, and more.
As this blog is just starting up, with a very small readership still, I had not considered to post Comment Rules. However, it has been suggested that we post rules asap.
The discussions here are only for this Blog. We’re unable to answer specific support requests or inquiries about products we mention. However, if you experience a problem with an item we’re discussing, feel free to post a question with the caveat that we are not professionals. General questions or comments concerning products are fine and we’re very happy to answer them. Don’t worry; we’re NOT selling anything!
All comments that are on topic and constructive will be posted. Normally comments and trackbacks will appear within 8 hours of being posted, but please allow us up to 24 hours to respond. If we require further information about a comment prior to approval, we’ll contact you — provided you have submitted a valid email address.
We don’t allow obscene, profane, racist, sexually explicit, inflammatory, or derogatory language, and may either edit the comment prior to posting, or refuse to post the comment entirely. This is a “G-rated” blog. Commercial advertising, links to sites irrelevant to the topic will be removed from comments/trackbacks prior to posting.
Things we want to see in comments:
*Lots of good interesting responses (Debating is fine, as long as it’s friendly & pertinent)
*Keep it on topic
*Keep it respectful
*Keep it fun
Things that will get comments edited/deleted:
*Offensive or abusive language or behavior
*Misrepresentation (claiming to be somebody you’re not) – if you don’t want to use your real name, that’s fine, as long as your “handle” isn’t offensive, abusive, or misrepresentative
*Blog-spam of any kind
We hope these rules will keep the discussion lively and on topic.
