To help keep your online community safe, supportive and welcoming, we have put together a list of guidelines for you. For more detailed information please see our terms and conditions which you’re agreeing to when you join the community.

1. Be kind to each other: Many people using the online community are going through a difficult time with their arthritis and a few kind words can go a long way. Please welcome new posters and be especially nice to them. Celebrate difference and disagree respectfully, be sensitive to the feelings and opinions of others - you might not always agree, but you can agree to disagree in a peaceful manner.

2. Keep it friendly: Don’t post anything that would intentionally upset someone
or treat them unfairly because of their race, gender, sexuality or beliefs.

3. Avoid feeding the trolls: Some people enjoy getting a reaction, and post nasty comments just to provoke a response.

4. Be effective: Use your community to both give and receive the support and information that you need. Sharing experiences is at the heart of the community, but please be careful not to give medical advice.

5. We’ll try to be fair: Sometimes we might have to remove posts from the community if people don’t follow the guidelines. This doesn’t happen often but we’ll try to explain why. Following these guidelines and our more detailed terms and conditions should mean that we don’t need to do this very often.

6. Don’t identify healthcare professionals by name: Please feel free to share your experiences of receiving healthcare services but be careful to not identify any health professionals by name as this could be unfair to them and potentially libelous.

7. Stay safe online: Never post your personal details anywhere on the community and please report anything you think is suspicious.

8. Get in touch: Our Digital Engagement Officer is always here to chat. If you have any comments on our guidelines or how we moderate, please send an email to our Digital Community Engagement Officer, or private message her at webmanager. or sharonk@arthritiscare.org.uk It’s your community and we’re always looking to make the online community even better.

Thank you
Sharon
