Blog Rules

Blog Rules/Guidelines

The forum is a place where people can interact and have discussions about different topics within the Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums & Records (GLAMR) sectors.

We ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that the forums have some productive conversation.

ARANZ will use their discretion and may delete posts without warning that do not comply. 

We rely on all forum members to help keep these discussion forums a safe place for people to share and view information. To do this, we request that all members comply with the following rules when contributing to the discussion forums:

  • Keep it friendly

  • Be courteous and respectful. Appreciate that others may have an opinion different from yours.

  • Stay on topic. When creating a new discussion thread, give a clear topic title. When contributing to an existing discussion, try to stay 'on topic'. If something new comes up within a topic that you would like to discuss, start a new thread.

  • Share your knowledge. Don't hold back in sharing your knowledge – it's likely someone will find it useful or interesting. 

  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behaviour and speech.

ARANZ maintain the right to remove posts and threads to ensure that material posted in the discussion forums is not potentially harmful. For this reason, we may edit or remove any post, that:

  • contains disrespectful or derogatory remarks about any person

  • contains advice or content that we believe is damaging, unhelpful or distressing to others

  • contains swearing or offensive language, is nonsensical and/or irrelevant

  • promotes personal beliefs in a way that is disrespectful of the choices of others

  • is racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit or suggestive, abusive or otherwise discriminatory or objectionable

Most of all enjoy your time in the community.
