Rules for How We Use Words at HackerNoon
We (generally) use American English spelling conventions.
If you’re from a former English colony that’s not America, that means a ‘Z’ where you think an ‘S’ should go in words like “organization” and “realize”.
It also means there’s no “U” in the word “color”, etc.
We (Generally) Capitalize Story Titles.
E.g.: How To Stay Human in the Digital Era: A Series of Fortunate Tips for Shaping the Next Generation
We’re aware that English is not everybody’s first language.
We serve a global audience, so we're not Grammar Tyrants, as a publication.
Our Editors ask:
“What improvements can I make here to ensure this story is generally understood?”
“How can this person possibly not know the difference between your and you’re ?”
