Moderation policy

All comments added to the site will be moderated before they appear.

We will always try to moderate content added within a 24 hour period during the working week. Comments added over the weekend or bank holidays will be moderated on the first subsequent working day.

If your submission to the site does not appear on the site, or is removed, it means that the Archives Media Player team feel that the contribution does not comply with the participation guidelines listed below.

Where possible or appropriate we will contact you to explain why your contribution did not fit with the guidelines, with suggestions of how the content could be re-phrased so that it can appear on the site.

If you have a query about why your contribution has not appeared on the site, our participation guidelines or approach to moderation, please contact us at
