Rule n° 9 - The conditions for moderation of public spaces are indicated.

When the rules are known from the start, it's much easier to act. Specifying the conditions of moderation will limit the risks of dispute, for example, if you delete a message.

#Content #Editoral


  • Explain to the users why and how their posts may be moderated.
  • Reduce the number of complaints from users who don’t see their posts online.


For each public space on the website requiring moderation (comments, forum, etc.): indicate the moderation conditions for public spaces, in the space itself or in a specific page available from them.


For each public area of the website requiring moderation (comments, forum, etc.), check that there are moderation conditions or, failing this, a link to a specific page or to a generic page such as the legal notices page or the help section, where they can be found.
