Content Guidelines

Last Updated on August 1, 2011

General Guidelines

ParkVisitor allows users to contribute different kinds of content, including reviews, photos, events, private messages, and more. Keep it clean please. We can't wait to hear what you think, but just like acting in inappropriate ways will get you kicked out of a park and the same goes for here. Agree to keep it family friendly so your submissions can be enjoyed by all and you are good to go. Please also read the guidelines below for specific types of content that you might contribute to the site.

Inappropriate content: Colorful language and imagery is fine, but there's no need for threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, and other displays of bigotry.

Promotional content: Unless you're using your Business Owners Account to add content to your business's profile page, we generally frown upon promotional content. Let's keep the site useful for consumers and not overrun with commercial noise from every user.

Find the right forum: Please make sure your contributions are relevant and appropriate to the forum. For example, reviews aren't the place for random rants about a park or matters that don't address the core of the visitor experience. Some things are better addressed in other forums.

Privacy: Don't publicize other people's private information. You should generally avoid posting other people's full names, personal phone numbers and email addresses - and avoid uploading close-ups of other people without their permission.

Intellectual property: Don't swipe content from other sites or users. You're a smart cookie, so write your own reviews and take your own photos, please!

Additional Guidelines

Review Guidelines

The best reviews are passionate and personal. They offer a rich narrative, a wealth of detail, and a helpful tip or two for other visitors. Here are some additional thoughts for conscientious reviewers.

Personal experience: We want to hear about your firsthand park experience, not what you heard from your co-worker or significant other. Try to tell your own story without resorting to broad generalizations and scant facts. What was great, what can use some help, should other visitors consider going to this park?.

Accuracy: Make sure your review is factually correct. Feel free to air your opinions, but don't exaggerate or misrepresent your experience.

Conflicts of interest: Your reviews should be unbiased and objective.

Review updates: Review updates should reflect a new experience or interaction with the park. Don't tell the same old story you've already told.

Photo Guidelines

A picture is worth a thousand words. You can upload photos to your personal account and any expert listing.

User Profile Guidelines

Don't be shy ? use your account profile to let people know who you are and what makes you tick. Users want to read reviews from people they know and trust (not those with profiles that are empty or laced with inappropriate content).

Talk Guidelines

Talk is a place for fun, open, and honest conversations about what's going on in your community. While it's easy to engage and post on Talk, take care with what you post since you can't subsequently delete it. A dash of common sense goes a long way. And since user trust and transparency are important to us, anonymous users who are disruptive to the community will probably be dealt with more sternly than those who stand behind their words.

Messaging Guidelines

ParkVisitor has a handy messaging feature to keep you connected with your fellow ParkVisitors. First off, please don't use this feature to harass other users or send other inappropriate content. Second, user accounts are for personal, non-commercial use only.

Event Guidelines

Heard about a great event in the neighborhood? Great! Post it to the Events tab on ParkVisitor. Please don't use Events to post your recurring promotional announcements and sales. We also like to keep the content fresh, so please don't post events more than 6 months in advance.

Event Guidelines (for Parks/Experts)

You can use this feature to tell your visitors about events being hosted at your park, special offers and promotions, and other news.

Public Comment Guidelines (for Parks/Experts)

Private messaging is often the best way to resolve a dispute with an unhappy visitor, but issues can also be publicly addressed by posting a public comment. Don't use public comments to launch personal attacks, advertise, or offer an incentive to change a review.

Video Guidelines (for Parks/Experts)

Videos are a great way for parks to promote themselves. Be as creative as you can, but please keep it clean.
