This month, we are excited to pull the curtain on one of our latest features: a PetHelpful-specific disclaimer for “Your Money Your Life” (YMYL) content. YMYL content is held to high editorial standards due to its ability to impact the current and future well-being of people, as well as the animals they care for or interact with.
To keep with these high standards, we have streamlined a user-friendly disclaimer which authors can access in the HubTool. This disclaimer will only be visible to signed-in users before the general release date, and can be individually disabled in the HubTool by authors. We realize not every article will need such a feature, and editors will turn them off accordingly over time. Authors may also choose to disable the disclaimer on non-YMYL articles before it goes public on October 31st, 2018. PetHelpful is just the first site to have this feature, and other sites will likely follow. We’ll keep you posted!
We encourage the use of this tool in lieu of author-created in-text disclaimers across our Network Site for future YMYL articles in order to keep articles cohesive and intelligible, while assuring that our community’s authors, readers, and visitors are in good hands.
Thanks for tuning in, and we hope you have a Spooktacular October!
