That’s why we’ve updated our community guidelines to reflect our thinking about comments: as a fun, interesting, and respectful place.

Yes, we still have some hard and fast rules, but our guidelines now start with statements we hope everyone will actively think about while participating. I want to thank of the Verge To both Eric Berggren, head of moderation, for taking so much care of this community and helping develop the new guidelines.

Think about how your words and actions may affect others. Better yet: Think about how you can help everyone jump in.

Be curious ledge is about exploring our future together. Show comments with the same sense of curiosity that we bring to writing posts for the site; It’s fun to learn, and we can help each other learn new and interesting things together. Remember that people come from all different places and backgrounds, so don’t assume you know what they think, feel, or mean.

Be interesting Another way to put it: be Similar to, Try to bring something new or unique to the conversation. It is not a race to be the first, fastest or fastest. We hope you share good things with the community, especially if it means sharing an insight that only you can provide. And remember to stay on topic; Comments aren’t free for everyone, and you’re more likely to write a great comment if it’s related to the topic. Try to add value to every thread you participate in rather than just answering for it.

Back it up with something solid that you can link to, whether it’s other news stories, a scientific study, or a really good video explanation.

And you can also tell us about something that we should consider in our coverage.
