Comment system rules

  1. Comments are allowed on SantaCon.info at Santa’s discretion and Santa’s discretion is absolute.
  2. Posts that Santa doesn’t like will be ruthlessly deleted and Santa doesn’t like posts that are rude, ignorant or stupid.
  3. Please ignore spam/troll comments - Santa will delete them along with any replies.
  4. The comment system is NOT for advertising. If you have something to sell that you think Santa might be interested in, please refer to the Advertising page.

Santa monitors all the comments so you better be nice or it’s no prezzies for you.

Comment system features

  • Tap on a new comment to cancel its new notification.
  • Since everyone is called “Santa” you can tap on the name (Santa) or icon (Santa hat) to toggle a color hint to identify which comments that particular Santa wrote. There’s no guarantee that the color will be unique but it should be sufficient for the purpose. Note that this doesn’t apply to organizers or Websanta who are uniquely identified.*
  • The text area supports limited HTML, copy & paste, but all comments are aggressively sanitized.
  • Please use the Preview button to see how your comment will appear after it has been sanitized.
  • Rude words: It has a rude words converter. It’s meant to be a fun way of allowing you to convey your intended tone without causing offense and is easily defeated. If you defeat it, Santa will delete your comment (see the rules above).
  • Links to external URLs are made clickable via a noindex preview feature which means it’s safe to click on links in comments. It also means the comment system cannot be used to get free link juice from SantaCon.info.
  • If it doesn’t seem to be working properly please use the Console button to see if there are any error messages

* The special case of organizers

  • Upgrading to organizer status has to be done manually by Websanta - if you are an organizer please Contact Santa.
  • Organizers have an ID of the form, “Santa ~ Organizer” where Santa can be a custom name.
  • On the page of a SantaCon they are organizing, an organizer’s avatar (santa hat) will have a gold star.

If you log in with social media

  • Logging out of this site does not log you out of any social media accounts.
  • It’s important to remember that accounts are validated by matching e-mail addresses: Once you have an existing Santa account, changing the e-mail address for your Santa account on this website or your social media account will disconnect one from the other. Logging in via social media with a different e-mail address will create a new account so it’s necessary to change your e-mail here first before using your social media account to log in.
  • Once authorized, de-authorizing social media log in can only be done from the social media account in question. At the time of writing, Santa has only enabled Facebook and the settings can be found in your Facebook account under Settings: Apps and Websites (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications if you’re logged in).

If you have questions or suggestions, please Contact Santa
