Racked Community Guidelines

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Fashion, shopping, beauty, and celebrities—the topics we cover at Racked are some of the most entertaining things in the world to talk about. As editors, we want to keep our comments section as fun as our subject matter. The best case scenario: A community of savvy, well-informed people making good jokes, sharing shopping intel, learning a little something, and leaving happy. The worst case scenario: A bunch of angry weirdos shouting at each other.

So in the interest of fostering the kind of community that we'd like to see on the site, here are a few guidelines:

No abusive behavior: We won't tolerate personal attacks on other members or on groups. If you're trolling; being racist, sexist, or homophobic; insulting other members; using offensive language; or engaging in other antisocial behavior, you can and should expect to have your post deleted and quite possibly have your account banned.

No spam: We reserve the right to remove comments promoting products or soliciting money.

Stay on topic: Please keep your comments relevant to the subject of the story. We reserve the right to remove anything that takes the discussion too far afield.

Try not to be too NSFW: This is a fashion site; there will be boobs. We simply ask that you refrain from posting any words or images that could get someone fired.

Love and help your moderators: Our moderators work hard to foster helpful and fun conversations: please respect their work. If you see a problem comment, flag it! If you have a query about the way a post or comment was moderated, email

In conclusion, have a good time, be mindful of other readers, and most importantly, don't be an angry weirdo. Thanks.
