Editorial Guidelines

Editorial Guidelines

Mission Statement: Our goal is to spread the Engloid love. We will not pretend to be impartial and we will have a clear and evident love for all things Engloid. We will want to share this love with the rest of the world and when it comes to Engloids nothing will be beyond our scope.

Transparency is the rule of ethical blogging so for you know what to expect from us the staff, editors, and contributors and what we expect of ourselves here are some general editorial guidelines that this blog pledges to follow.

  1. Be Yourself!
    First and foremost be yourself and write in whatever style you prefer. No one wants to read a blog with a bunch of “phonies”. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind (as long as it relates to the topic at hand)
  2. Be Creative
    Contributors should feel free to design and layout their posts as they see fit. We encourage at least one piece of media be it images, audio, or video. If you don’t know how to embed ask one of the senior staff.
  3. Acknowledge Sources
    If you heard the quoting or paraphrasing news from a forum post or another site (not counting original research) then cite it at the end of the post. When using images off of pixiv, DA, etc. please use the capation options and include links to source material where possible.
  4. Use Inclusive Language
    Do not use terms or language that excludes or discriminates against any group or section of the community. Posts should be gender neutral and non-racist in tone, and show respect for people who are disabled, older, younger of from other language backgrounds.
  5. Write nicely.
    This is the internet: who know who will be reading your work. As such, all contributions should be well structured with careful attention to grammar, spelling, syntax and punctuation. Please proof read your work and double check your tags before submitting a post.
