Respect others' privacy and keep personal information private
Remember that these sites are a public space, so only post things you want people to see. Never post personal details or any personally identifiable information about you or others and make sure you have the consent of anyone you feature in any videos or images that you share.
Never impersonate other people, companies or brands or claim that someone else's work is your own. Don't lie about your age in order to see content restricted for people older than you.
Keep it civil and tasteful
Everyone has opinions and we want to hear them. If you disagree with something someone has posted, keep it friendly and keep it clean. Contributions that areunlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, hateful, offensive, obscene, profane, inflammatory, sexually oriented, homophobic, racially, sexually or religiously offensive or otherwise objectionable or unlawful is not acceptable and may be removed. This includes inappropriate usernames and profile pictures.
If you feel that someone is commenting inappropriately, please report the person through the site's reporting procedures or by sending us a direct message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harassment won't be tolerated
If you feel you're being harassed, we recommend you initially ignore it - in most cases this will put an end to it. But if it's particularly offensive or continues, report the person through the site's reporting procedures or by sending us a direct message to email@example.com
Don't break the law (including copyright!)
Don't post any videos, images or text showing or referencing people committing illegal acts and take care not to breach any court injunctions. Don't post any content (including music, videos or images) that you haven't made if you don't have express permission to use them from the copyright owner. This includes any profile pictures - if your profile picture is of Mickey Mouse, make sure you look extraordinarily like him and you have explicit permission from Disney to use the image first.
No flooding, spamming or advertising
Flooding is when the same comment is posted over and over in the same forum; spamming is the posting of the same comment (or very similar) to more than one forum. Don't re-post the same message, or very similar messages, more than once. This is not the place to promote your own business or related interests so please don't post any advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, junk mail or other forms of commercial solicitation. Keep comments and links relevant - any links to pornography, commercial or other inappropriate content may be deleted.
No spoilers please!
Please don't give away any plot developments that are yet to be broadcast in New Zealand on TV, radio or at the movies.
