Quality Of Posts On HR Link - Clean-up Drive


Admin
Posted 29-03-2010Reply

Dear members,

Several members have informed us that the quality of posts on HR Link has been deteriorating for the past several weeks.

We agree with you and we appreciate your proactive initiative to provide critical feedback.

As a response to your feedback, we have now started a clean-up drive to deactivate all topics that violate the guidelines and accounts of corresponding members.

We believe this would restore quality and keep HR Link the most desired destination for professionals who are serious about making meaningful contributions to the HR profession, learning from other HR fraternity, and helping other HR professionals learn and grow.

In addition to the guidelines published on "post a topic" page and via several other forum topics and discussions, the following violations would attract immediate deactivation of the topics and associated member accounts:

1. Copy-pasting from other sites.

2. Unprofessional comments and content. Misleading post titles.

3. Spelling and grammar mistakes. Inadvertent mistakes once in a while are ok though. We request you to spell-check and grammar-check your posts and replies before you post them.

4. Spam and promotional material.

5. Personal attacks.

The decision to start the clean-up drive and to enforce the guidelines more strictly has been taken after talking to several members who have been making invaluable contributions to the community at HR Link. Hence, this is not open to further debate.

We believe this would encourage more active participation and contributions from HR thought leaders as well.

HR Link Team would like to thank you all for helping us build the largest and most valuable HR Community.

RK

There is indeed nothing to debate but to salute this response from the HRLink administration.

Inspite of the latest site features (that have been implemmented for some months) in order to help guiding HRLink members, some of them keep breaking the rules of common sense, of professionalism, by:
- taking credit for copy-pasted articles and not sharing their real source,
- using inappropiate language,
- posting promotional materials,
- misspelling,
- giving unprofessional replies,
- giving thumbs up to their own topics and posts,
- posting personal attacks.

We are all part of a team - HRLink team - and therefore I am sure we all salute this initiative and more than this, we'll act accordingly, with more respect towards this site and its members, using adequate language, attitude, sharing good quality information and respecting the team that works behind this name and makes HRLink a valuable and respected site.

Bravo RK. We wanted you back and we wanted you back with a bang !!

Of late we have only been noticing copy pasted stuff and so much amount of sms language, I would not be surprised if i say "wl dnn dude" to your post. And the worst thing is members replying to these stupid posts saying "you are the god of wisdom". At least akin to something like that. Why cant we have more senior members of the community taking up righteous issues raised by members to address their concerns than posting topics available easily on google search ?

Maybe we need to take a leaf out of the HRD Ministry of India and make it a graded process rather than a points process on hrlink. Am sure it would turn the tables literally and practically. :)

Any fresh thoughts on this ? Although I would hate this particular topic to be maligned with something like a debate.

RK, Thanks a lot for coming back, and coming back on time, before this place seemed like a team-full of kindergarten kids not knowing their spellings.

Regards, Harish

I agree with Claudia and Harish. Let us make sure that if we like some post if we have to contribute something valuable to share to the existing points then only let us write or a mere thumbs up is understandable that we liked a particular post and thanked for the same. And yes we are not kids to keep posting our views on this site using SMS language or informal slang. Let us all make it a more professional network where we give absolute knowledge and sense but nothing else.

I am happy to see the patience of senior members like Harish and Claudia who are making continuous efforts not to let down this site or allow it to become an unprofessional site.

Keep going guys.. We are following you.

Regards,
Sri Manjari .V

When signing in on any site and especially on professional ones, there are certain rules, policies, guidelines that need to be followed. We all have to agree to them before signing in and we must respect them.

I am sure any person who makes mistakes and breaks the rules of a site is repeatedly advised to correct those mistakes and learn about this site's policies before being deactivated. Deactivating the account is the last step and the logical one if all the other measures fail.

Dear Simply,

It has been told to Mr. Dixit many times, very humbly, very very professionally that the posts need to be acknowledged with the rightful authors' name and the source.
Do you want to check them ? Each time instead of saying Yes I have failed to acknowledged the source, the response we got was some language we do not understand. Honestly, we do not think that senor members like this would be of any use to this community.

I respect your views on re-activating his account, but I think it took some effort to shut out some copy paste material from the volumes of hrlink, and I hope you would agree with me.


Regards, Harish

Hello Simple,

I respect your views but I guess its been done only after giving reminders for umpteen number of times to most of the de-activated users not to just copy and paste the materials but to acknowledge that its been received by them from so and so source. And I think as a last resort only they have done so. We should understand the rules of the site properly and start respecting them.
