Guidelines For Answering A Question On Mamapedia

Guidelines For Answering A Question On Mamapedia

Occasionally we remove questions and answers from Mamapedia.  When this happens the user who posted the content is sometimes upset their content was removed.  While we have easily accessible Question Guidelines available on the Ask A Question page we haven’t included such a reference when people respond to questions.  So, here are a few guidelines for answering questions.

  1. The guiding principle for answering a question on Mamapedia is the answer should be helpful to the person who asked the question and others reading it.  Remember, the question was posted because the user doesn’t know the answer and many times others are reading it for the same reason.
  2. Answers to questions must remain on topic.  Off topic answers may be removed as they are not helpful in answering the question.
  3. Answers that contains profanity, insults, or hostile comments will be removed.  If you feel a post is inappropriate, please report it using the “Report as inappropriate” feature in the “What can I do next?” area just below the question (see the screenshot below).  All reported content is reviewed and will be removed if it violates Mamapedia’s policies or is otherwise deemed inappropriate.  Do not respond to the question by insulting the person who asked it.
