In the period preceding an election for the House of Representatives, the Australian Government assumes a caretaker role. It is important during that time that Australian Government resources are not used to communicate political material. As this website is hosted by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the site will be moderated from the time the House of Representatives is dissolved until after the election to ensure that political material is not placed on the site.
- Your comments are relevant or on-topic
- Your comments are not inflammatory, unreasonable or obscene
- You are civil and respectful of others and their opinions (including not impersonating anyone and not posting someone’s personal information without their permission)
- Your behaviour is in line with relevant laws
This site uses a number of checks to ensure that comments can be published quickly.
The first is a human verification step to deter spam bots: when you submit a comment, you are asked to include a user name and an email address. You don’t have to include your actual details; you may post under a pseudonym.
You are also asked to complete a CAPTCHA test which is another simple human verification step.
The third step requires your first comment (associated with your name and email address) be manually approved by one of our moderators.
If we make a mistake, please let us know and we will deal with it as quickly as we can.
