Guidelines for posting on Placeready.com

PlaceReady allows subscribers and visitors to contribute different kinds of content, including reviews, photos, videos, events, announcements, promotions, quote requests, and more. Being mindful of others being our priority, we’ve put together these content guidelines.

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

Conflicts of interest: Your contributions should be unbiased and objective. For example, you shouldn’t write reviews of your own venue or employer, your friends’ or relatives’ venue, competitors in your industry.

Promotional content: Unless you’re using your Own Account to add content to your venue’s profile page, we generally do not allow promotional content in the description of your listing. Let’s keep the site useful for visitors and potential renters and not overrun with commercial noise from every user.

Relevance: Please make sure your contributions are relevant and appropriate to the venue in question. For example, reviews aren’t the place for angry comments about a business’s employment practices, political ideologies, extraordinary circumstances, or other matters that don’t address the core of the venue experience.

Privacy: Don’t publicize other people’s private information. Please don’t post close-up photos or videos of other patrons without their permission, and please don’t post other people’s full names unless you’re referring to service providers who are commonly identified by or commonly share their own full names.

Intellectual property: Don’t swipe content from other sites or users. Please, write your own reviews and take your own photos and videos.

Demanding payment: Beyond simply asking for a refund to remedy a bad experience, you should not use removing or posting your review as a way to extract payment from a business, regardless of whether you’ve been a customer.
