D. Community Guidelines

In a nutshell

We want Megalist to continue to be an authentic and safe place for inspiration, expression and sharing. Help us foster this community. Post only your own photos and videos and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Megalist, don’t spam people or post offensive content.

The long story

Megalist caters for a  diverse community of cultures, ages, and beliefs. We created the Community Guidelines so you can help us foster and protect this amazing community. By using Megalist, you agree to these Guidelines and our Terms of Use. We’re committed to these guidelines and we hope you are too. Overstepping these boundaries may result in deleted content, suspended accounts, or other restrictions.

Share only photos and videos that you’ve taken or have the right to share

As always, you own the content you post on Megalist. Remember to post authentic content, and don’t post anything you’ve copied or collected from the Internet that you don’t have the right to post.

Post photos that are appropriate for a diverse audience

Only post photos that are relevant to your review and that accurately represent your experience. Irrelevant content, spam, content containing hate speech, pornographic material or violence will not be tolerated.

Reporting and blocking content. If you encounter content you don’t like, you can unfollow or block the user or business that posted it, making sure you will not see that content again. You can block directly from the review, comment, profile or message you don’t like. If you see content that you think is objectionable or violates our Community Guidelines, you can also report that to us in the app. One of our team will get back to you within 24 hours. If we find the content objectionable or in breach our Community Guidelines, we will remove the content and eject the user who provided the offending content.

Avoid taking photos of others without their consent.

People like to share photos of their children. For safety reasons, there are times when we may remove images that show nude or partially-nude children. Even when this content is shared with good intentions, it could be used by others in unanticipated ways.

Foster meaningful and genuine interactions

Help us stay spam-free by not artificially collecting likes, followers, posting repetitive comments or content, or repeatedly contacting people for commercial purposes without their consent.

Follow the law

Megalist is not a place to support or praise terrorism, organized crime, or hate groups. Offering sexual services, buying or selling firearms and illegal or prescription drugs (even if it’s legal in your region) is also not allowed. No one may coordinate poaching or selling of endangered species or their parts.

Remember to always follow the law when offering to sell or buy other regulated goods. Accounts promoting online gambling, online real money games of skill or online lotteries must get our prior written permission before using any of our products.

We have zero tolerance when it comes to sharing sexual content involving minors or threatening to post intimate images of others.

Respect other members of the Megalist community

We want to foster a positive, diverse community. We remove content that contains credible threats or hate speech, content that targets private individuals to degrade or shame them, personal information meant to blackmail or harass someone, and repeated unwanted messages.

It's never OK to encourage violence or attack anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases.

Serious threats of harm to public and personal safety aren't allowed. This includes specific threats of physical harm as well as threats of theft, vandalism, and other financial harm. We carefully review reports of threats and consider many things when determining whether a threat is credible.

Keeping the community strong

Each of us is an important part of the Megalist community. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by using our built-in reporting option. We have a team that reviews these reports and works as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t meet our guidelines. Even if you or someone you know doesn’t have an Megalist account, you can still report to us at info@megalist.com. When you complete the report, try to provide as much information as possible, such as links, usernames, and descriptions of the content, so we can find and review it quickly. We may remove entire posts if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines.

You may find content you don’t like, but doesn’t violate the Community Guidelines. If that happens, you can unfollow or block the person who posted it. If there's something you don't like in a comment on one of your posts, you can delete that comment.

Many disputes and misunderstandings can be resolved directly between members of the community. If one of your photos or videos was posted by someone else, you could try commenting on the post and asking the person to take it down. If that doesn’t work, you can submit a copyright report at info@megalist.com.

We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.

For more information, check out our Terms of Use.

Thank you for helping us create one of the best communities in the world,

The Megalist Team
