My post did not appear on the site. What happened?

All content you see on the site has been approved by a content editor. Your post may have been rejected because it broke one of the author guidelines set. Please contact our content editor for information about why your post was rejected.

Why was my post title changed?

With the exception of minor spelling and grammar corrections content editors do not make editorial changes to blog posts without first consulting with our writers. We do reserve the right to change headlines in order to make our stories more visible to search engines. We make our best effort to notify writers in advance about proposed headline changes.

How are articles chosen?

Here’s what we look for in publishable material:

  • Posts that deal directly with our specific subject matter (see the list of subjects we publish on)
  • Articles that help “frame the issues” providing a community member with an overview that adds value and puts conversations into perspective.
  • Information that appeals to a broad range of people.
  • Articles that are written in clear, journalistic style.
  • On-topic content that excludes obscenities, marketing content, or blatant self-promotion.

What is your comment moderation policy?

We publish all comments that are not abusive, overly promotional, and on-topic. Some comments are held for moderation (see below) to cut down on spam. Moderation can take up to 24 hours but is most likely within a few hours.
