  • Contributors are encouraged to insert appropriate links and references to their own sites or articles.
  • China Daily Mail may add tags, pictures and links to related articles that are suitable to the article being published.

  • Administrator (Craig Hill): An administrator can edit and delete posts/pages, comments, settings, theme choice, import, users and everything else on the site. Only one administrator is recommended by WordPress. The Administrator reserves the right to edit or delete any contributions before or after publication.
  • Editor: An editor can view, edit, publish, and delete any posts/pages, moderate comments, manage categories, manage tags, manage links and upload files/images.
  • Author: An author can edit, publish and delete their posts, as well as upload files/images.
  • Contributor: A contributor can edit their posts but cannot publish them. When a contributor creates a post, it will need to be submitted to an administrator for review. Once a contributor’s post is approved by an administrator and published, however, it may no longer be edited by the contributor. A contributor does not have the ability to upload files/images.
  • Follower: Followers have signed up to receive updates each time new content is published. They can comment on, rate and “Like” posts, pages and comments. They do not have any editing privileges.

All contributors are encouraged to post a profile about themselves, but this is completely optional. Send an email if you would like to know about this.
