Comment Policy

Aaron Brethorst, August 13, 2012

Hi all – Just a short post to mention our new comment policy. You can find a link to it on every control page (look for the little link that says “Read our Comments Policy”).

It’s pretty simple and, I think, quite fair. All it says is please don’t be a jerk, and don’t post anything illegal. Now, I’ve never seen anything illegal posted here, and I can’t imagine what might be posted that would meet that criterion, but we obviously can’t have that.

What’s more troubling to me, though, is a recent increase in rude, non-constructive comments. Please remember that not everyone is at your same level of skill in iOS development. If someone posts a comment or a question that you think is not indicative of a high level of skill, please remember that you were once in the same place as them, and gently help them out with a pointer in the right direction instead of cutting them down.

It’s up to all of us to keep the level of civility and discourse here at a high level, and we reserve the right to delete any comment that we feel does not meet this requirement.
