Hello. Does this site have an introduction to knew members. I have looked around and could not locate one. So this would be my recommendations to make the site better.
Our Social Media Issues
News and issues about Blue MauMau's social media. This is where we discuss platform problems, posting issues, and reader suggestions on how to make the site better.
Our news is reported by professionals as well as our citizen journalists, Blue MauMau members who write and contribute the news that they see and know.
Discussion and complaints about how a news story, reader comment, or forum posting skews the truth by being poorly arranged or presented, e.g. a news report that reads more like an advice blog.
Discussion of problems or suggestions about comment and forum issues, such as guidelines.
Our reporters ask questions of readers about stories.
Dear esteemed readers:
We want comment and remark threads to keep on subject. As a general rule of thumb:
- Blog comments are largely for engaging the author
- Forum threads are for more long-term discussions with the community
We support the writer of a news story or article by keeping on track of the subject matter, whether we agree or disagree with points made. So we don't post about Item 20 of the UFOC if we are discussing new point-of-sale technologies.
The moderator (me) now has a new tool in which such out of place remarks and comments can easily be moved to the forums in which they are more appropriate. In the past, the moderator was not able to move postings by members - only guests.
Posts will be published. But the moderator may put an occasional wayward thread in a forum thread in which it better fits. This helps us keep organized the oodles of information and discussion that inundates this site and that some can find daunting.
