Code Ocean Blog Commenting Guidelines
As advocates of open science, we are also open to your comments. Though our doors are wide open to continuing the discussion on points we pose, please keep the below following in mind.
Comments that we like to see:
Add value. Provide constructive, well-informed thoughts that further the discussion. Share your knowledge and experience to help other researchers reading the blog.
Have been proofread. We welcome well thought out comments, but avoid providing several paragraphs or multiple comments in a row. At the same time, if you want to respond with “Cool” or “Great post,” tell us why.
Read the full blog. Think of a meaningful way to add to the conversation versus letting your inner Hulk out on something that may be explored more later on in the blog.
Comments that include the below will not be tolerated:
Offensive language. Any hate speech, threats or verbal attacks on the author or other commenters will be removed. Our goal is to add and provide positive value to the scientific community, yours should be too.
Un-related remarks. Comments that have nothing to do with the post or are way out of scope. If you want to talk with us directly, contact us here.
Self promotion. Don’t promote your brand, product or other personal information. Unless it’s research that helps add to the conversation, this isn’t the platform for it.
Impersonations. Don’t pretend to be someone else and post your own content. If you want to provide more information on a topic but it it’s yours, cite it.
We are a global community, but since our blog is in English, we’re only going to allow comments in English.
We review all comments before they are posted to ensure they follow these guidelines. If you have any questions or would like to report someone, please contact: email@example.com
