Blog Comments Moderation
Last updated: Thursday February 4th, 2021
Over the last few weeks, the blogs section of JetPunk has been moved away from the educational and fun section it once used to be. In large part, this is due to a rising number of comments which are completely irrelevant to the blog itself, and often causing arguments or disputes for no reason at all.
To combat this, we are introducing two new measures:
- Blog owners can now delete comments on their blogs. If you write a blog, and somebody spams nonsense on it, you can now delete those yourself without having to report them.
- Increased moderation of blog comments. To go hand-in-hand with the above, we will be cracking down on blog comments which are unrelated to the blog they're posted on.
Blogs are intended to be a way to share insightful and / or educational content that can be discussed with the community, they are not to be used as a forum.
Finally, to those who don't know what the "edit" and "reply" buttons are, please use them! Underneath your own comments, for up to 60 minutes after posting, there is an edit button where you can edit the comment you just posted, instead of posting 5 separate comments all together (which will now be considered spam). There is also the reply button on every first and second level comment, as well as on the last comment of a 3rd level chain. This allows you to reply to someone above, and prevents posting a new first-level comment for every reply.
Update: Due to system abuse, blog reports will now take more priority than before. If somebody's blog is successfully reported and removed, they will not be able to post another blog for a few days after that.
