Please review the Community Guidelines before making a new post.
We’re a curated community that’s different than a typical open forum. We don’t tolerate posts that are mean, foolish, or downgrade the quality of our community. We expect users to be positive and helpful toward others. And by doing so, we believe we can make a difference in each other’s lives. If you’re involved in seriously downgrading the quality of our community, your account will either be permanent suspended or it will banned for 2 weeks and the next ban after that will be permanent.
1. No personal attacks, labeling, or name-calling.
Respect others and practice common courtesy. Some examples of personal attacks are calling a person “stupid,” “a child,” “a b.tch,” “a whore,” etc, or making a mean accusation. This includes hateful, degrading, offensive, abusive, vulgar, physically threatening or defamatory language.
2. No sexually descriptive posts or sex advice to minors.
Sex advice (descript and nondescript) should not be given to minors (younger than 18) because it’s way too controversial promoting strangers giving teenagers sex advice and could get our app kicked off of the AppStore. This includes questions on when to have sex, how to, when others had sex, masturbation, pornography, etc. Minors should go to trusted adults or their school guidance counselor for appropriate materials and resources. Birth control and teenage pregnancy (including abortion/adoption) advice to minors should be limited to giving options rather than dictating or telling them what to do. Sex-related advice can be given to other adults if the conversation is nondescript (meaning doesn’t go into details describing sexual activity). Keep in mind that even though we require users to be 13 years or older to register a social account, children as young as 9 or 10 years old can be browsing our app. We want to keep the content safe for them and we also need to abide by Apple’s ban on apps with excessively objectionable content.
3. Don’t force your views on others.
On topics where there’s disagreement, respect the opinion of others and their right to disagree. Don’t force your views on others (ie., “you must think this way”) and don’t degrade people who disagree with you (ie., “you’re stupid to think that way”). Also, don’t be overly argumentative, rude, or too abrasive. It creates unnecessary drama and lowers the quality and safety of our community.
4. No spam.
No advertisements or peddling your own products or affiliate links. No posting the same post into multiple groups (this is annoying to our users). No promoting outside groups, forums, social networks (including Facebook groups) or apps without prior permission from the dev team (we don’t want people spamming our users or promoting products, services or groups that we can’t vouch for).
5. No obscene language.
Group posts are seen by a lot of people, some who are really young. Don’t use language you wouldn’t use in front of a 5-year old.
6. Don’t make up false stories, mislead users or impersonate someone you’re not.
Our community isn’t a place to pretend you’re pregnant or impersonate someone else. Our dev team has spent countless hours cleaning up the mess of these fake users and repair the damage done in our community. That’s why we consider this type of violation as one of the most serious and damaging violations possible. Impersonation and identity theft can also be illegal (see California Section 528.5).
7. Use common sense.
Don’t give stupid advice or make ridiculous comments that can be taken offensively. Don’t post material that violates copyright laws. No posting of private information of another person without their permission. No posts that can be taken as condoning or promoting illegal drug use or any illegal activity.
8. You must be 13 years old or older to participate in the community.
9. Don’t use the community against the developers who created it. That’s just not cool. No posting of complaints on how moderators or the dev team is managing the community. If you have a complaint against the moderators or dev team, please email us directly without having to involve everybody in a he-said-she-said fight.
10. No gaming the system by setting up multiple accounts, giving helpful points to self through another account, or excessive use of the vote down or abuse report system.
This is a living document that will evolve as we’re presented with new situations. Additional information can be found on the Terms of Service.
