We created these community guidelines to help ensure a safe and supportive community. These guidelines help members to understand what is allowed within our network. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please contact us. Our community uses a three-strike system. However, real people make these decisions, and if you are concerned about a violation, please contact us to see if we can help.


We love welcoming new members to our community. We do have some requirements to join.
  • Each member must provide a link to an active social media account.

Respect Others

You won't agree with everything other members say, and that's okay. Even if you disagree with someone's words, please remain respectful. Challenge ideas, not the person.
