Multilingual Museum has been created with the accepted commons principles of openness, sharing and collective responsibility. Since this community by nature is multilingual, multicultural and technologically heterogeneous, we must all expect to encounter some possibly unfamiliar aspects of what we take for normal experience. We should exercise kindness and that must be mutual. Please remember that the opinions expressed on this website are those of each author, not of Multilingual Museum. However we reserve the right and the duty to moderate discussion, mute and untimely remove any member or comment that does not adhere to those guidelines.
This page gives some guidelines for conduct on the website that are not necessarily legally binding, but lay out some idea of how to follow a universally acceptable code of behaviour. It is also imperative to understand just what Multilingual Museum is and what it is not. The guidelines are intended to inform users about our code of behaviour and what is and is not acceptable, both academically and socially.
Please treat our site with the respect you normally would for any gathering place. We are not a public space, but we are an open community. This is a place to share, learn and exchange.
These guidelines will change, so it is important that you keep abreast of any amendments. We will post details of updates to this and other policy documents.
