DailyTech Basics

  • What is DailyTech?
    DailyTech is the leading source of news, research and discussion for current and upcoming issues concerning science and technology.

  • Why does DailyTech appear on other websites?
    DailyTech LLC is a news corporation and part of our revenue is generated by syndicating DailyTech to other publications.   If your publication would be interested in this service, please read the Regarding Copyright section of this FAQ.

DailyTech’s Forums

  • I would like to comment on an article.
    Each article has a section that allows you to contribute to the discussion of the article.   In many ways, the article is merely a heading to a larger forum discussion.

  • Who moderates the DailyTech forums?
    Everything on DailyTech is self moderating – meaning, our readers moderate themselves.   Every registered reader is allowed to either comment or moderate inside an article.   Moderation points are assigned to all readers based on the number of comments.  

  • What happens if someone who moderates would like to comment instead?
    If you originally moderate an article but instead decide to comment, your original moderation will be removed and your comment will appear instead.
     

  • What is my reward for having a highly rated comment?
    There is no “karma” or “point” system on DailyTech.   If you post poor comments, they will get moderated into oblivion.   If you post good comments, they will get moderated up and gain exposure and respect to more readers.

  • What about metamoderating and/or malicious moderators?
    Second and third tier moderating occurs within DailyTech.   These employees are only responsible for assuring moderation is not occurring systematically or maliciously to hamper a truly free discussion.

  • How do I get banned from DailyTech?
    Occasionally we will completely ban a user or IP block from DailyTech.   You can assure yourself a ban by:
    * Harassing other users or employees
    * Excessive use of derogatory language
    * Excessive “neffing” or posting pointless, offtopic comments
    * Spamming
    * Registering dummy and puppet accounts

  • Why was my story not published?
    Unfortunately, we can’t publish everything.   Sometimes this is due to the fact we have posted a similar article before, or that the article doesn’t fit the content of DailyTech.   Although we might not post your suggestion, don’t get discouraged!   The great thing about news is there’s always more!
  • Why haven’t you answered my email?
    Although we try to answer everyone’s email, sometimes an email will slip through the cracks or we are just too swamped writing articles!   To make sure we do not miss your emails make sure:
    * The headers are correct (URL)
    * The domain you are sending from has a proper reverse DNS
    * The SMTP you are sending from is not an open relay
