Now that this blog seems to be picking up steam a bit, I thought it would be good to share a few reminders on blog etiquette and rules.
Our goal in setting up this site is to foster communication between Alyson Pond residents and to make it easier for the board to share updates and receive feedback. The feedback I’ve received regarding this blog (online and in person) has been very positive, and for that I thank you.
For it to remain effective, though, it is important that the blog remain a place for open, civil discussion. As such, a few reminders:
- This is not the forum for personal attacks. If you have a concern that you would like to address with the board or another homeowner, please reach out to us (or them) directly. I do not like having to remove or edit comments that are inappropriate, but have started to do so where needed. (A general rule of thumb is if it’s not something you would say to that person’s face or in a public setting, it’s not appropriate to post in a comment on this blog.)
- Full name and a valid e-mail are required. This is a common rule that has been shown to help keep online conversations appropriate and civil. In addition, you can’t receive a notice of replies to your comment if you don’t leave a valid e-mail, nor can we get in touch to follow up on any concerns you may raise. As noted above, going forward, comments without a name or valid e-mail may be removed.
As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.
