MODERATION OF COMMENTS

The statements, comments, or opinions expressed through the use of Urban Online are those of their respective authors, who are solely responsible for them, and do not necessarily represent the views held by the staff and management of Urban Online.

Urban Online reserves the right to moderate, publish or delete a post without warning or consultation with the author. For any questions please contact digital@urban.co.ug

Why we moderate your comments

The relevance of the comments to the discussion on the page.

Respect for other users on the platform

The length of the comment should be short and engages directly with the discussion.

Does the comment contain profanity, less regard for certain races, religious affiliations or intolerant to other people’s views?

If your comments have these and more that will not conform to these rules then we may have to moderate it and at extreme cases not post it all together.

Why should your comments be short

The sanity of a debate is in the length of the comments, in day to day discussions we do not give lectures, it is for this very reason that we need to keep these conversations also short.

We have stopped short of setting a word limit, but the box where you write the comment isn’t a bad guideline.

The reason we don’t set a limit is that sometimes, such as with personal stories relevant to a debate, you may need to write more.

We always endeavour to stick to this and if we don’t, you have every right to pick us up. If you have any more questions, digital@newvision.co.ug
