Rules

1. Rules

TipIt is all about bringing people together through shared interests and locations. Our aim is to create a friendly, warm community where people have the space to grow and share ideas safely and confidently.

2. What to do

Have fun. Share ideas. Be nice to each other.

At TipIt, we want to create a community where people can share ideas and information. It’s a fun space where you can come together with new friends, motivate and inspire each other.

We expect all our users to be nice to each other and treat people with respect- so with this in mind, here’s our list of what isn’t acceptable:

3. What not to do

Never bully, threaten or act abusively towards others.

The internet can be a strange place, where strong opinions and opposing ideas can sometimes be voiced in a way that would not be deemed acceptable in real life. Our stance on bullying is a firm one- anyone who behaves in an abusive way towards other users, or who shares offensive or hateful content, may have their account suspended. We will not tolerate hate speech or any content which deliberately attacks any individual, group, race, sexual orientation, religion, disability or identity. Any content which is deemed offensive will be removed, and any perpetrators of violent speech will be expelled from the community.

Never post porn

There is no place for pornography on TipIt. Do not share pornography imagery, language or links here at any time.

Don’t ever share people’s private information without permission

Never assume it is ok to share anyone’s address, photographs or any other kind of private info without their prior consent.

Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.

A great rule to live by is to be proud of who you are- you’re a great person, why pretend to be someone else? We don’t tolerate catfish on TipIt so anyone masquerading as another person, famous or otherwise, runs the risk of having their account terminated. If you run a fan page, make it clear that there is no connection between you and the celebrity it’s about. TipIt also reserves the right to reclaim any usernames that are already owned by businesses or individuals- we like to keep things clear and transparent, so we expect you to do the same.

Don’t disappear!

Any account that’s inactive for more than six months may be removed, and if you’re going to sign up for a great user name that will be the envy of others, make sure you use it!

Safety

We will do all we can to keep TipIt a safe and secure place to be, but this is not something which can be guaranteed. In order to keep yourself and your community safe, we expect the following from you:
