Policies/Rules

Article Frequency Policy


It's not permitted to submit two articles within 48 hours of each other.  This rule will be enforced without the help of a computer algorithm.  In other words, we will first issue a warning and then we'll enforce the rule.  The purpose for the rule is that we don't want a single author's articles to dominate the homepage.


Comment Frequency Policy

All participants are required to occasionally comment on the work of others.  This rule will be enforced without the help of a computer algorithm.  In other words, we will first issue a warning and then we'll enforce the rule.  As a rule of thumb, one insightful comment of more than two sentences per article submission is all that is required.
