Expressing yourself in a variety of ways is important, which is why we created Col[lab]. We want you to share what's on your mind through blog posts, videos, podcasts, comics and more. More importantly, we want to nurture your dreams, and in order to do that, we need to establish some Col[lab] Commandments. Follow them and we promise, you'll feel empowered and use that feel-good juju to empower your fellow Col[lab] bloggers.
Commandment No. 1: Build Each Other Up.It takes a lot of nerve to create something and put it out there for others to see. Encourage your fellow bloggers by commenting on your favorite posts and sharing them on social media. Want to team up with a likeminded Col[lab] member and create an innovative video series? Go for it! Have a suggestion for our editors? Send it! We want Col[lab] to be a welcoming forum of fun, so if you encounter haters, please flag the post/comment, and the Col[lab] editors handle them quicker than Olivia Pope.
Commandment No. 2: No Bullying, Obvs.There's no room for discriminatory, defamatory or harassing speech in Col[lab]. Also, don't plagiarize, accuse anyone of a crime (that's what the police are for!) and/or post spam and/or shady content (animal cruelty, thinspo, etc.). If you encounter examples of bullying, please flag it to our Col[lab] editors. Again we're so fast, Olivia Pope calls us for favors.
Commandment No. 3: Adapt.Col[lab] is like a freshman; she's got her whole life ahead of her. When you witness her growing pains, help her along and adapt. If something isn't working on the site, let us know and we'll work on it. If you get attached to a site feature and don't want us to mess with it, advocate for it. If there's a blog feature you'd love to see, tell us. We want you to help us mold this contributor network into something that we're all proud of, so don't be shy with your feedback. Help us evolve Col[lab] into a confident contributor network, just like a senior ready to graduate and take on the next challenge.
