Rules for Editors
- Editors are volunteers, they are not paid. They are not agents for
start-page, but individuals with their own views and interests. They can be
of any nationality, sex, age etc and need no qualifications, Just like
- Please only register the pages you can get up and running within a month,
you can always register more later. Remember that it always takes longer
then you estimate to do just about anything. If you register a screen and we don't
hear anything within a month we will ask you for an update on where you have
got, and regularly thereafter. If we feel no progress is being made we will
make the screen available for other to undertake.
- We ask you to provide an email address for others to tell you of
faults or other items connected with the pages you are working on. We do not
include these in mailing systems. If you strike up a friendship with anyone
through email contact, please treat it as cautiously as you would when
talking to or meeting any stranger. If at any point you are gong to meet someone
contacted by email, do so in a public place or take a friend with you. Most
people are exactly what they say, and are like you or I, but it is always
wise to be careful.
- We do not have any age limits, editors can be young, old or in between. We
will not be asking you at any point to spend any money with us or to meet
any of our development staff, so parents and teachers can relax, building
pages is a safe interest that really encourages researching and in some
cases writing skills.
- Ultimately we have responsibility for all our pages, and the senior
editor, Tracey will make any final decisions necessary, we will also include
any items we feel should be on a page without asking or telling you. You can
contact Tracey by email at email@example.com.
If you want to find out more on Tracey visit her family website at www.princess-tracey.com.
- Please do not include direct links to pages that you know contains
pornography or terrorist skills, ie bomb making.
- We will not support cartels. For example if you are part of an association
or group that feels you control an industry, you must not exclude others
with an interest, or who provide a range of services. Including sites on your
page does not mean you are recommending them, just allowing others to make
up their own mind. You must not also try to get around this rule by placement,
ie producing a very long page with many irrelevant sites further down and
hiding competitors there. If we feel you are breaking this rule we will
point it out, if you don't correct it we may make the changes ourselves or
ask someone else to edit that page, or of course take it over ourselves.
- We have no objection to your own site being the first button, if relevant,
but generally we expect buttons to be arranged logically with the most useful
towards the top.
- Spelling can be English or American, and we will not eliminate articles
due to English errors providing they are understandable.
- We expect you to make some errors, the only people not to make errors are those who don't do anything. However we do ask that you correct what you
- Generally act as you would like others to act and everyone will be happy,
if we need to we will extend this rule list, but will not email everyone
with changes so check here occasionally. If you feel another rule is necessary
let us know.
