Moderation Policy

Comments can only be added to the site by unregistered or not logged-in users and therefore these comments will not appear until they have been moderated.

Ideas and applications submitted are always moderated before appearing on the site.

The askiris.org.uk team will sometimes edit content before it appears on the site. Such editing will take place only if we feel that it will make the content more understandable (for example, amending typos or moving content into correct fields) or easier to view (for example, if images uploaded are too large for the site or a title is too long). We will not change the substance or meaning of a contribution to the site.

The askiris.org.uk team will always strive to moderate content added within a 24 hour period during the working week. Comments added over the weekend or bank holidays will be moderated on first subsequent working day.

If your submission to the site does not appear on the site, or is removed, it means that the askiris.org.uk team feel that the contribution does not comply with the Participation Guidelines of the site – these are detailed below.

Where possible or appropriate we will contact you to explain why your contribution did not fit with the guidelines, with suggestions of how the content could be re-phrased so that it can appear on the site.

If you have a query about why your contribution has not appeared on the site, please contact us at [email protected]
