In order to maintain the quality of our content offerings, only a subset of submissions are selected to be published to publicly accessible portions of the web site.
Some of Tinews’s content may be commented on publicly, with user-submitted text appearing directly on the site, associated with the appropriate content. It is the intention of the operators and architects of this site that the commenting feature be used only for constructive feedback and other discussions directly related to the content in question.

Moderation criteria may vary over time.
Tinews is meant to be a family-safe website, which means that we don’t accept content submissions which contain pornography, adult or mature content, hate speech, content that advocates against an individual, group or organization, content that promotes weapons (not the hobby/movie/games content type, just the trigger happy type of content ), depictions of gratuitous violence, gore, bloodshed or gruesome images, images that promote use of drugs or drug paraphernalia, copyrighted material (content for which you don’t have the necessary legal rights to display), if we receive a notice or otherwise have reason to believe that your content qualifies as such we may remove or suspend your content or account.
