Our Policy on Comments

Your first name, last name, and email address (preferably an @nyu.edu address) are required to post comments on NYU Local (aka Local For Life LLC). All comments posted anonymously or under obvious aliases will be deleted. If you impersonate someone, it’s not like we can tell, but honestly humans are weird and do stuff like call the cops when that happens. We don’t like subpoenas or people who make us deal with them.

This policy is enacted on NYU Local for the same reason the Signature was invented. Anonymity is the fastest way to turn an otherwise sane person into a snide, poor, and inflammatory Gawker. Even still, we won’t allow obviously offensive comments.

Also, we won’t remove your comment unless it’s an extreme circumstance, so use discretion if you’re going to say something you’ll regret when you graduate.

We are looking into more advanced ways to ensure authenticity, but right now, your full name and email address are what will make all the difference.

  1. Just out of curiosity, would it ever be possible for NYULocal to use a commenting system like Disqus? I often come across really awesome (or terrible) comments, and my first inclination is to “like” (or dislike) them (i.e.: a la Slate, Thought Catalog, etc). Plus, it’s always fun/useful to see what other people have thought about a particular comment in comment threads. They have a wordpress plugin — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/disqus-comment-system/screenshots/

  2. HI Sophie,
    In your “We Are the Champions” story you included some memorable moments in the “There were the good times” section, One achievement that was not included – I’m sure this was a difficult story to research – were the accomplishments of our 1956 baseball team.
    We became the first NYU team to reach the College World Series in Omaha. We won the conference (Metropolitan Conference) championship, earned an automatic berth into the regional championships where we beat Penn State and St. John’s and were on our way to the World Series. Unfortunately we didn’t do as well in Omaha, losing to Arizona and Wyoming.Only one other NYU team made it to Omaha since – the 1968 (or ’69) team which finished third in the eight team field.
