Online Community Engagement Software

Moderation

This site is moderated by QLD Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to ensure relevant non-offensive content is posted by registered users.

While we value your time in participating online and your comments are valued, moderation enables the site to be positively and constructively enjoyed by all participants and ensures participation in online engagement activities remain within acceptable boundaries regarding:

  • confidentiality and privacy
  • relevance to the topic
  • discriminatory and offensive content.

 

Help us to keep conversations on topic by being polite, constructive and respectful of others.

Content is screened prior to publishing on this website and may be screened after it has be published. If your published content receives legitimate objection, it will be unpublished and reviewed by the moderator. At any time the moderator, at their sole discretion, can remove content that they deem unsatisfactory.

Additionally, a profanity filter is built into the software disabling any attempt by a user to use offensive language.

It is encouraged for participants to be thoroughly informed of the consultation’s subject, impacts and outcomes in drafting their content they intend to write, prior to posting a comment. The most effective way to share your opinion is through constructive contributions.

The following behaviour will not be tolerated:

  • Direct complaints and/or defamatory or libellous comments about any person or related organisation or Department, their employers or representatives

  • Raising questions or issues unrelated to the site or the active consultation/s

  • Disrespect for other participant’s opinions and comments

  • Sharing of anyone’s personal information

  • Discriminating against, harassing, threatening or being inflammatory on another participant based on their gender, sexual preference, relationship status, race, religion, culture or appearance.

  • The posting of embedded content or links to advertising, illegal or offensive information

  • The use of insulting, provocative, hateful, obscene or offensive language

When contributing your views please ensure that you: 

  • do protect your personal privacy and that of others by not including personal information of either yourself or of others in your posts to the forum, (such as names, email addresses, private addresses or phone numbers)

  • do not reveal the identity of a child in out of home care

  • do not post material that infringes the intellectual property rights of others

  • do not post multiple versions of the same view

  • do not promote commercial interests in your posts, and

  • do not post overtly party political comment (eg. reference to candidates, fundraisers, support for political parties)

    Any online posts which breach these guidelines will be removed. There is no obligation on the moderator to notify you, if your content has been deemed unsuitable for publishing.

    A registered user will be permanently banned for their inconsideration and inability to meet these rules and those of the TOUs.
