Community Guidelines

 

Introduction

The following guidelines apply to all FFG Network members and FFG Club members and any persons using the one of the FFG platforms, even if the text refers only to FFG Club members. If you encounter any kind of misuse, misconduct or harassment, please report this to FFG management. Together we will help maintain a fun, safe and productive platform.

Be Real

FFG Club profiles are intended to represent real people in a local area. FFG Club member profiles must be honest and authentic.

Be Honest: Intentions, Affiliations, Transparency

All members should be open about who they are, their intentions, and their affiliations. All FFG Club group and event descriptions should be accurate, to allow members to make informed decisions about their participation.

Be Yourself: Fake Accounts & Impersonation

Creating fake accounts, malicious accounts, or accounts meant to impersonate another person, is prohibited on FFG Club.

Be Respectful

Respecting people’s time, attention, personal choices, and personal boundaries is essential to creating safe and trusting communities. Be respectful in interactions with people and in content posted on the platform. FFG Club monitors and restricts behaviors that are dishonest, undermine the integrity of the platform, violate personal boundaries, or serve to intentionally upset people.

Message Respectfully: Don’t Spam

Content sent to a member that is irrelevant, impersonal, unsolicited, promotional, or repetitive is spam.

Set Appropriate Expectations and Honor Them: Don’t Tamper with FFG member-groups

Converting or changing events in a FFG Club or a FFG Club member-group so that they no longer align with the expectations and purpose set by the organizer and leadership team is misleading and not allowed. …

Honor Requests for Distance: About Block and Ban Decisions

If you are blocked, you’re blocked. Members must accept and respect any organizer’s decision to ban a member from a group, or a member’s decision to block a member from contacting them. Creating new accounts to circumvent block or ban decisions is prohibited.

Sexual Content and Nudity

Pornography is not allowed on FFG Club. Publicly shared photos must be appropriate for general audiences. Nude or sexual photos are not allowed in public spaces.

Shocking, Disturbing, and Violent Content

Gratuitously graphic, disgusting, obscene, or violent content is prohibited. We don’t allow content posted to upset, shock, or disturb a FFG Club community or its members.

Ask for Permission: Consent

FFG Club defines consent as welcomed communications and actions to engage with a member. Engaging with anyone in a non-consensual way is strictly prohibited. If ever in doubt, ask permission.

Respect Privacy: Don’t Post Other People’s Private Information

Posting other people’s private information without their explicit consent is prohibited.

Be nice

Bullying, harassment, exploitation, and acts of hate undermine community building in safe spaces where people can trust one another. Building real relationships requires us to be more compassionate and kinder towards one another. FFG Club enforces against behaviors that are threatening, intentionally malicious, or personally harmful–physically, emotionally, or mentally.

Be Compassionate: Don’t Harass, Bully or Shame

Harassment and bullying are not allowed on FFGclub. FFGclub will honor requests to remove content that publicly shames or degrades a private individual. …

Act with Integrity: Do Not Manipulate or Exploit

Any attempt to use someone’s insecurities or vulnerabilities for personal gain is considered manipulation or exploitation and is prohibited.

Hate and Supremacy

Hate speech, supremacy, or behavior that incites hate or violence against individuals or groups of people based on who they are or their beliefs, is prohibited.

Be Safe

All organizers and members should take ownership over their personal safety and should never put themselves or others in danger. We expect all organizers and members to be mindful of local laws when engaging with their fellow FFG Club members and member-groups. Where appropriate, organizers should also set guidelines for their FFG Club members and member-groups to ensure their members are participating safely.

No Threats, Violence, or Personal Endangerment

Using FFG Club to promote, facilitate, or organize violent, criminal, or non-consensual actions that endanger anyone, physically, mentally or emotionally, is prohibited.

Auto-mutilation

FFGclub does not allow any content that encourages or glorifies self-injury or encourages others to harm themselves.

Copyright and IP

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. Posting content that violates another party’s intellectual property rights is prohibited.
