Guidelines on postings
Guidelines on postings:
As you all should know,
now allow anyone to post something to the codewolf.com site. However, I
should probably post a few guidelines so you'll know what goes on behind the
What types of posts do you want?
Almost anything goes here. If you
found a site interesting, or just have something to say, POST IT! Great posts
are things that aren't found on the more popular sites, something that is
interesting: interesting science, strange people, strange places, odd
happenings. Basically, if you read this site, and you found another site to be
interesting, someone else reading the site will also find it interesting.
Thousands and thousands of different people from all over the world look at this
site every day. Very few post comments, but you can be sure that if you found it
interesting enough to look at, someone else will as well, so POST IT!
Why don't I see my post
Anything you post goes into a queue.
I review this queue of stories and edit the content as needed. I avoid editing
your actual post unless it will mess up the site format. When I approve it, the
post appears. Usually a wait of 4-6 hours is typical, sometimes you may see the
post in a few minutes. Whatever name you use for the post is used in my credit
Do I have to use my name?
Of course not. I only track what has
been submitted. I will remove any reference to a full name (using only your
first name for privacy reasons). I never use email addresses unless you
specifically request a response. I suggest using some alias, and sticking with
it. I will be implementing a log in for people. If you post using that alias, I
will track that name and it may be used in the near future for additional
What is NSFW?
NSFW - "Not Safe For Work" - anything
that shows a female/male in any type of seductive pose. Not just porn. People
may get fired for looking at images of seductive women, women in bathing suits.
Silly, yes, but I don't want anyone getting fired here. I don't post anything on
the main site but words that may be "NSFW" if you think that words may get you
fired, don't view this site at work. I and others, will, and do often, use words
like Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker,
Motherfucker and Tits. Deal with it, it may be vulgar, but it's not
porn and any adult should be able to deal with it without being offended. People
very often insult each other in the comments. Don't be offended by this, it's
normal. People are letting off steam, and trolling. It's a normal part of
dealing with others on the internet and should be accepted as such, nothing
On another note: this entire site should be considered NSFW - comments and
links here are many times NSFW - if you get fired for viewing this site, you
probably shouldn't have been surfing the web at work, so too bad, I have a team
of lawyers and you don't.
Why was my post rejected?
Your posts are reviewed by me
(codewolf). I rarely reject a post based on content alone since anything goes on
this site, but I do have final say on the things posted to the site. Usually if
something you post does not get to the front page, it's probably for one of the
- The link has been posted in the past, I try not to repeat links, I do make
exceptions if the link is relevant and I haven't posted it in a while (and, I
try to note this in the link).
- The same link is on
Fazed.net, FARK, or
Slashdot, everyone reads
these sites, I try to keep codewolf.com "fresh" and "new" - exceptions for
- The link is broken
- The link is something that everyone on the internet has already seen
(i.e., All Your Base)
- I will not post anything from
rathergood.com - I
find that crap annoying, and, it's all over already
- I will not post any link to:
- What type of "whatever" am I quiz - old and fucking stupid
- bash.org - there's
lots of funny stuff there, people can go there for that
- Any site dedicated to selling a product - unless it really is cool or
- Sites hosted on a free hosting service - some exceptions made here
- Porn sites - most are rejected, most porn sites tend to have a ton of
pop-us and install spy ware, I'd rather my readers not be exposed to something
that may harm their privacy or security. Exceptions will be made, so feel free
to post these links, I may approve them. I host
freeslut.org - although I don't update
it as often as I should, it's 100% free, no pop-ups, no spy ware.
- Any site that promotes killing or harming humans or animals. No
Some things I do approve of ,
Self-promotion - if you have
your own site and want some free exposure, please post your link! I'm happy to
help out other website developers (as long as you aren't selling snake oil,
Anti-anything-codewolf-believes-in links, as you know, I will post
anything that may oppose my beliefs or values, I don't like suppression of
ideas just because I don't like it. So, I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't allow
others to post sites that support their personal views!
- Hate-Group type sites - they exist, they are despicable, but by
denying that people who hate don't exist is silly. I'm not in the promotion
business, just in the providing something to look at business. This site
allows comments on links for a reason.
- Pornography, fetish, gay, lesbian, whatever - it may not be for
everyone, but personally I have no problem with porn. Just mark it as not safe
for work (NSFW) and others shouldn't have a problem with it. Be descriptive of
what the link shows! (see the above note on porn sites in the previous
section). I have had requests from females asking me to provide male porn.
Although I am not opposed to linking to that, I will not post it myself, I'm
not really into looking for that type of links, I'm sure you can understand.
- Your own rant - complain, complain anonymously, I'll post it.
