How To Use This Site
Shalom and welcome to JewPoint0, the Darim Online blog. We’re happy you’re here! Here is an overview of how to use this blog:
What is a Post?
A blog is made up of a series/collection of posts listed chronologically with the most recent entry (post) at the top. Each single unit of writing that usually contains a title, maybe a photo, and some text is considered a post. Posts are written by Darim staff and guest bloggers. Comments on the posts (see below) can be added by anyone.
How do I add a Comment?
We want to hear from you and talk with you! Anyone can add a comment, you don’t have to be registered, nor do you have to use your real name. To add a comment, click on the word “comment” or “comments” at the top right of each post. Any previous comments will be displayed and a text box appears where you can type your comment. At the left, you will need to enter your name and your email address (this will not be available to anyone else or displayed on the blog anywhere). Before you click “Submit Comment” you may want to proofread your comment as it is not editable.
Our comments are moderated, which means they need to be approved before they will appear on the site. We do this mainly to block SPAM and also to insure that comments are appropriate and do not violate our commenting policies. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page to view our Commenting Guidelines before you submit your comments.
What is “Subscribe to Feed”?
By subscribing to the Feed you will be notified, via an RSS Reader, when the blog has been updated. By subscribing to a feed you won’t have to check the blog randomly; every time there’s a new post, you’ll be notified.
What’s a Tag and a Tag Cloud?
A tag is a keyword used in association with the content for a post. For instance, in a Post about videos, the tags may be: YouTube, Vimeo, video. When you click on a tag, you will see all posts related to that tag keyword.
A tag cloud is visual that shows the keywords used on a blog and how often they are used. The most common tags are larger than the others. Selecting a tag within the cloud will lead to a results page showing entries associated with that tag.
What is a Category?
This is a method of organizing blog entries by assigning each entry to a predetermined topic. Each topic (category) will link to a list of entries, all with related content. When you click on a category name, you will be able to view all posts within that category. Some categories here on Jew.0 are Nuggets, Tech Tips, and Book Reviews.
What’s the Blogroll?
These are links to other blogs that we like and recommend. Check them out!
Jew.0’s Comment/Commenter Guidelines:
The overall theme for our commenter guidelines is very simple: “Be Friendly. Respect Others.” Darim believes in the “living room” theory regarding comments; as if you are visiting someone’s home, e.g. sitting in their living room having a discussion. In essence our guideline follows the same practice as it does in our homes:
If you are a guest in my home and are rude to me or my other guests, I will ask you to be more polite. If you do not comply, I will force you to leave and you will not be allowed back in.
- No personal attacks, abusive or foul language. We will not moderate legitimate views being expressed but pornography, obscenity, racism, anti-Semitism, bigotry, harassment, personal attacks or the promotion of hate will not be permitted.
- No solicitation. It’s fine to link to other blogs or news articles, but please do not add a comment about selling something, trading something, or to promote a site or blog that is selling something.
- Do not post trademarks or copyrighted material
- Please use Netiquette (do not type in all caps, write complete sentences, limit use of abbreviations) when possible
