This blog is about the Science Museum’s collections. It’s a work in progress – we’re trying new ways of sharing the stories and information we find out about the collections during our research.

We’d love to know what you think, so leave a comment if you want to share your thoughts.

Community guidelines

Sometimes we discuss issues which can divide opinion and produce strong reactions, but however strongly you feel you’ve got to play nicely and respect the views of others.

Make sure that any comment you post is directly relevant to the discussion, and if you disagree with other users please criticise their arguments, not their character. If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it online.

Try to make one point per comment. It makes it easier for others to follow and to respond.

Write as if you were talking to a friend of a friend (maybe with your mother lurking in the background).

From time to time we may have to take down inappropriate comments. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Here’s a list of things that might make us get out the big red pen:

  • Swearing and insulting language – think of the kids!
  • Ranting and repetition of the same point
  • Harassing, impersonating or intimidating others
  • Giving out your own or other people’s personal information
  • Spam and off-topic comments
  • SHOUTING – you don’t need to write in caps to get your point across
  • Posts in foreign languages (we can’t read them so they might be rude)

These Community Guidelines are based on those for Antenna. This page was updated by Mia in February 2011.
