“Una di Noi Winx” aims to be a safe, welcoming place for Winx fans to chat with one another and share their thoughts and ideas. The rules below will help all of us keep it that way.
The writers of this blog read every comment that gets past the spam filter. Though we reserve the right to edit, delete, or mark as spam any comment for any reason, we try to avoid it. As long as your comment follows the rules, we’ll approve it.
Don’t worry if your comment’s not there right after you submit it. We may not have read it yet. Check back again later.
1. Be kind and respectful.
“Free speech” is NOT an excuse to be rude. Don’t forget you’re talking to real people, not computer screens. Think before you type. To change the old saying a bit, “If you can’t say something nicely, don’t say anything at all.”
We WILL edit or delete your comment if:
- It contains a personal attack
- You threaten, mock, or curse at another reader or a blog writer
- You insult someone’s religious beliefs, race, nationality, etc.
2. Stay on topic.
It’s okay to bunny-trail now and then. But don’t leave a comment that doesn’t add to the conversation. If you’d like to share news, feedback, an idea for a post, etc., email us at [email protected] or comment on Facebook or Twitter.
We WILL delete your comment if:
- It has nothing to do with the post/page or Winx Club
- It’s self-promotion (e.g. “Like my Facebook page!”)
3. Keep it clean.
Young kids, parents, and grandparents read this blog, so keep your comments as family-friendly as possible.
We may edit or delete your comment if:
- It contains a lot of curse words
- It’s about something risqué
- It shows or links to a video, picture, etc. that’s risqué
4. Stick with one online identity.
Try to use the same name every time you comment. That way, we know who you are. Don’t comment as someone else or as multiple people.
We may delete your comment if:
- You re-post a comment under another name
- You use a different name to get around being banned
- You use a fake email address
5. Don’t “correct” old posts or comments.
The info on this blog is based on what the writers knew/remembered at the time they wrote each post (especially opinions). If that info ends up being wrong later, we don’t go back and edit it or delete the post. Our readers have moved on.
Here’s an example. In May 2009, The OP wrote that Roxy’s dog, Artù, might be an important character because his name’s a reference to King Arthur. Was she right? Nope. But there’s no point in editing it now. That post is nearly five years old!
We WILL edit or delete your comment if you ask us to correct/delete a post that:
- Is one month old or more
- We’ve already written a follow-up to
Also, we may edit or delete your comment if you correct another (yours or someone else’s) that’s a month old or more.
Bottom line: Check dates before you comment.
6. Be careful about spoilers.
Winx Club airs all over the world, and some countries get new episodes before others. Two of the three writers are from the U.S., and so are a lot of readers. Please don’t ruin the surprise for us.
If you comment contains lines that are spoilers (i.e., anything about episodes that haven’t aired in the U.S.), we may hide them with our handy spoiler tag. If pretty much the whole comment’s a spoiler, we’ll delete it. That includes pictures, links, and videos.
We don’t want to ban anyone, but we will if we need to. You WILL be banned if:
- You constantly break the Site Rules and/or comment policy
- Your comments rarely add to the conversation
- You’re often rude or hostile toward other readers or the writers
- You constantly try to start fights with other readers or the writers
- You constantly insult other readers, the blog, and/or the writers
We may send you an email telling you why you were banned.
