In addition to the request for information, posts may suggest names of individuals to be invited to contribute to the response, or to propose a themed event for promoting further discussion and study. We welcome video contributions of short interviews with specialists.

All user produced content is subject to review and may be removed if it violates the spirit of this site. Users are encouraged to share their personal perspectives on language use in their daily lives or in society at-large, as well as news-sourced information and observations from the community. The use of emoticons, as well as photos (.jpg) and pdf documents (or links to those documents if they are hosted elsewhere) are welcome. Multilingual posts are welcome and making these posts accessible (through a brief summary or translation) to other readers is encouraged as a courtesy, as well as an opportunity to promote users’ development of plurilingual competence.

Please keep in mind the aloha spirit when posting; real humans will be reading your content. Maintain ethical manners as you would in your office, at school, or at the market. Remember your audience will be people from a broad range of backgrounds (professionals, language specialists, students, and the community at-large) who have an interest in multilingual multicultural Hawai‘i. All posts should be sensitive to the fact that this VI is open for public viewing. Be precise; state your point clearly and simply. Take care with spelling, grammar, and punctuation; site curators will not edit posts. Keep privacy in mind. Please cite and use external links for information sharing and networking when possible.
