CREATE A DIRECTORY LISTING
To create a directory listing, an organization must be registered and logged in and then must select ‘Create a Directory Listing’.
EDIT A LISTING / PROFILE
To edit a directory listing, an organization must first login and then select ‘Edit a Listing / Profile’. An organisation can then update its general, social and contact information, its key focus areas, its hyperlinks and also its self rating assessments.
CLAIM A DIRECTORY LISTING
In the event that an organization has not yet created a directory listing, the Site Administrator may have elected to create a directory listing for that organization and also to populate that listing with relevant organization information. A listing established in this way, may be claimed by a request being made to the site administrator and the provision of required information to substantiate an entitlement to the listing.
To claim a directory listing, an organization does not need to have registered or to login and there is no cost to claim a listing. The organization must however send a request to the Site Administrator by selecting ‘Claim a Directory Listing’ and providing the information requested.
Upon being satisfied as to the authenticity of the organization that is claiming the listing, the Site Administrator will provide a username and password to the organization, so that the organization can update its listing.
CHAT & ENGAGE
The site actively encourages user participation, dialogue and discussion by providing various options and avenues for this to occur. Guest Posts and Argumentative Posts also aim to promote the person or organization who has submitted the Guest Post or Argumentative Post, by providing a short author bio details section and provision for a backlink to their site. The options and avenues provided are:
- News / Blogs: The Site Administrator, from time to time, will publish posts on relevant site criteria.
- Guest Posts: To submit a Guest Post, a user needs to navigate to a submit form located at ‘chat & engage/guest posts/submit guest posts’ and complete the identified fields. A user does not need to have registered or to login to submit a guest post. A guest post will be moderated, before it is published and the conditions for submitting a guest post are contained within the form.
- Argumentative Posts: An Argumentative Post differs from a Guest Post as it is aimed at having a balanced and considered discussion around a proposition or statement by identifying and acknowledging contrary arguments to a proposition and to provide an assessment of which argument is the most persuasive to the user. To submit an Argumentative Post, a user needs to navigate to a submit form located at ‘chat & engage/argumentative posts/submit argumentative posts’ and complete the identified fields. A user does not need to have registered or to login to submit an argumentative post. An argumentative post will be moderated, before it is published by the site administrator and the conditions for submitting an argumentative post are contained within the submission form.
