The Rules: Comments In The Articles Section

Here at Ultimate-Guitar.com, we value your thoughts and opinions. We encourage you to comment on every article you read and every video you watch. An honest comment and a fair rating can be very helpful to writers and other users. Put simply, a good comment can easily make someone's day.

Unfortunately, we are sure you can see the potential for both abuse and misuse of this system. New writers should be encouraged to improve, but angry comments easily discourage them from writing altogether. In the same vein, insulting bands and users promotes hostility in the columns, thus discouraging readers from sharing their opinions. As such, the following areas of the site are carefully moderated:

The team that moderate these areas are called Column Cleaners.

The following is a list of rules that ALL user must abide by when posting in ANY comments section. Please be advised that, depending on the severity of the infraction, rule-breaking comments may be met with (1) a deletion, (2) a warning, or (3) a banning.

1. NO SPAM

2. NO FLAMING OR BAND/ARTIST/GENRE BASHING

3. NO TROLLING

These rules are subject to change without prior notice or warning. It is best to point out that each individual punishment is determined by the Column Cleaner giving it out. Stay on topic and follow these rules and you should be fine.
