As an Inkitt community member, it's important to always engage with others
with the aim to help them improve. In that regard, you should provide actionable
advice that the recipient can take to better themselves. As community members, we
are all on Inkitt to improve, so let's be sure to provide the tools to do so.
For example, this means giving advice on how to overcome writer's block or how
to improve story structure. Remember, advice can come in all shapes and sizes.
They can be macro-oriented by looking at the overall character development,
or more micro-oriented by focusing on a specific chapter, paragraph, or even
sentence. Bottom line, make sure the recipient can improve based off your feedback.
If you're a reader or writer, the best way to participate in the community
is to approach others professionally. That means you leave your emotions at
the door, and be objective when engaging with other community members, despite
the emotional nature of story telling. If you're on the receiving end, don't
take offense if someone doesn't like your work. Being professional also means you,
as a community member, are serious, fully motivated, and devoted to improve, whether
you are a writer hoping to master your craft or a reader looking to read beyond
entertainment. The idea is to acquire knowledge through social interactions.
The internet is a pretty awesome place in its own right: a place where people
can freely voice their judgement, but on the other side of that, it also gives
community members the means to disrespect or insult others because they can
hide behind their screen. In that regard, we insist that while you are on Inkitt,
you respect any and everyone with whom you engage. This means you shouldn't be overly
critical, or disrespectful. Don't get us wrong, you are free to disagree, but
always do so by treating others the way you would want to be treated.
Whether it be through comments, community groups, reviews, wall posts, or anywhere else,
we want everyone on our platform to feel safe while still being able to express themselves.
If you see anything that is questionable, please use the Report button or let us know at
firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes (but is not limited to): spam posts, harassment, promotion
of violence towards others, self-harm, intellectual property violations, and anything else
that may appear concerning. With your help, we can make sure all our authors and readers
have an enjoyable experience.
