Comment moderation

We are dedicated to maintaining a respectful community that engages in lively discussions on our social media sites.

Help do your part by following these participation guidelines: 

Be polite

Remember that real people are reading your comments. Even when you passionately disagree, use the same type of language here as you would in a class discussion.

Respect others

Do not post threatening, defamatory, abusive, harassing or hateful comments -- even disguised as jokes.

Stay on topic

Your comments should contribute to a discussion about the original post. This is not the place to promote your project, survey or business, unless it is relevant to original post.

Follow the rules

Don’t break the law or encourage anyone else to. Follow UVic’s policies, especially our policies on Human Rights, Equity & Fairness and Discrimination & Harassment. Follow Facebook’s Terms of Service.

We may remove comments at any time. You may also lose your ability to comment on our posts if you repeatedly violate our participation guidelines.  

We regularly monitor social media on weekdays from 8:30am - 4:30pm. We also check periodically on weekends and holidays.
