  3. Do not link to another site without previously approved permission from an administrator. We do not want to see links in the comments going to everybody’s websites. That being said, there will be some exceptions, which is why it can be done with approval.

  • Anyone can register, but initial membership is on a “Contributor” level. This means that a new member can write an article for the site, but it has to be approved before getting posted. No instant posts are allowed for new members, but as long as it is about Go and contains nothing that would be questionable or break any of the above rules, it will get posted after an administrator reviews it.
  • A “Contributor” can get elevated to an “Author” level by showing that they will add quality to the site with the posts that are created. A request can be made to an administrator for this elevation, but at least two posts will be needed to display the quality that we can expect. The “Author” level allows the use and addition of media files such as pictures and PDF documents.
