Comment and Posting Policy
Commenting may be disabled on some National Archives YouTube channels. Where comments are currently deactivated, this policy applies to those submitted prior to February 2017.
You are encouraged to share your comments, ideas, and concerns. Please be aware of the following policies for the National Archives' YouTube accounts:
- The channel is moderated and we will only post comments from commenters over 13 years of age.
- NARA will delete comments that contain abusive, vulgar, offensive, threatening or harassing language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups.
- NARA will delete comments that are clearly off-topic, that promote services or products, or that promote or oppose any political party, person campaigning for elected office, or any ballot proposition.
- Your comments are welcome at any time. We will moderate comments between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. We intend to moderate comments submitted at other times as soon as possible on the next business day.
- Communications made through the channel’s e-mail and messaging system will in no way constitute a legal or official notice or comment to NARA or any official or employee of NARA for any purpose.
- The content of all comments is released immediately into the public domain, so do not submit anything you do not wish to broadcast to the general public.
- We do not discriminate against any views, but reserve the right not to post comments that do not adhere to these standards.
Reporters are asked to send questions to the NARA Public Affairs Office through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments. Reporter questions will not be posted. NARA Public Affairs can be reached at 202-357-5300.
