Member Qualifications

As a participant in this community, you agree that you will uphold this Code of Conduct and be responsible for all activities and content you upload and post. In addition to upholding this Code of Conduct, you're responsible for adhering to all applicable local and national laws.

This is your community. Help us to keep it safe, friendly, fun, and helpful.

When you're using “The Site” (the "Services") you will follow these rules.

Please do

  • Search before you post. Search to see if a question you’d like answered has already been posted by somebody else. Posting the same question repeatedly and starting multiple threads on the same subject can be confusing. Someone will respond to your issue if they have the answer.
  • Be polite and respectful. We are a community of professionals, caregivers and service providers with different backgrounds, identities, and levels of expertise. Remember you might not be communicating in someone else's primary spoken language, and others may not have your level of understanding on any given topic.
  • Respect the site's etiquette. Use normal caps when you type. ALL CAPS typography is considered shouting and aggressive.
  • Learn from others. We all make mistakes, and those should be seen as micing opportunities. If you post something that turns out to be incorrect and someone corrects you, thank the person instead of reacting negatively at the person who corrected you. We are all here to learn and to improve ourselves.
  • Keep conversation threads on track. Stay on the topics of this site.
  • Be honest. Cite the source of anything you post or upload, if it isn’t your own original content.
  • Understand disagreements. Disagreements, both social and technical, are useful learning opportunities. Seek to understand other viewpoints and resolve differences constructively.
  • Keep the community healthy. Report any kind of abuse you find in the community. You can find a Report a concern option on the support pages.
  • Post to the right place for the best experience. “The Site” covers multiple topics, some generalized and some specialized. Use the built in search feature of the site to find content you are looking for.
  • Stay up to date. Review the Announcements page for information on improvements and changes to “The Site”.

Policies

To ensure the digital safety of how users interact with each other in their content and their conduct, “The Site” has rules about what types of content and conduct are not allowed. Prohibited content will be removed. Your account may be suspended or deleted from the Services if you post harmful content.

Bullying and harassment

We do not allow content or conduct that targets a person or group with abusive behavior. This includes any action that:

  • Harasses, intimidates, or threatens others.
  • Hurts people by insulting or belittling them.
  • Continues contact or interaction that is unwelcome, especially where contact causes others to fear injury.

Child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA)

We do not allow the exploitation of, harm, or threat of harm to children on our site, CSEA is any content or activity that harms or threatens to harm a child through exploitation, trafficking, extortion, or endangerment. This includes sharing visual media that contain sexual content that involves or sexualizes a child. CSEA also includes grooming, which is the inappropriate interaction with children by contacting, private messaging, or talking with a child to ask for or offer sex or sexual content, sharing content that is sexually suggestive, and planning to meet with a child for sexual encounters. A child is anyone under 18 years old or who has not reached the age of majority under applicable law.

We will delete the Cento Sharp Consulting, LLC account of any user posting CSEA.

Coordination of harm

Our site should never be used to hurt people, including by working with others to cause physical harm. Cooperating or making specific plans with others with the shared purpose of harming someone physically is not allowed.

Graphic violence and gore

Real-world violent content can be disturbing, offensive, or even traumatic for users. We also understand some violent or graphic images may be newsworthy or important for educational or research purposes, and we consider these factors when reviewing content and enforcing our policies. We do not permit any visual content that promotes real-world violence or human gore. This may include images or videos that show:

  • Real acts of serious physical harm or death against a person or group.
  • Violent domestic abuse against a real person or people.
  • Severe effects or physical trauma, such as internal organs or tissues, burnt remains of a person, severed limbs, or beheading.

Hate speech and discrimination

We do not allow hateful content that attacks, insults, or degrades someone because of a protected trait, such as their race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age, disability status, or caste. Hate speech includes:

  • Promoting harmful stereotypes about people because of a protected trait.
  • Dehumanizing statements, such as comparing someone to an animal or other non-human, because of a protected trait.
  • Encouraging or supporting violence against someone because of a protected trait.
  • Calling for segregation, exclusion, or intimidation of people because of their protected trait.
  • Symbols, logos, or other images that are recognized as communicating hatred or racial superiority.

Non-consensual intimate imagery & intimate extortion

We do not allow the sharing of sexually intimate images of someone without their permission—also called non-consensual intimate imagery, or NCII. We do not allow NCII to be distributed on our services, nor do we allow any content that praises, supports, or request NCII. In general, if a video or image has the following traits, we treat it as NCII:

  • It was taken privately, not in a professional setting.
  • It shows sexual activity, nudity, or a sexualized body part.
  • The person shown in the imagery didn’t agree to either the creation or the sharing of the imagery.

Additionally, Cento Sharp Consulting, LLC does not allow any threats to share or publish NCII—also called intimate extortion. This includes asking for or threatening a person to get money, images, or other value things in exchange for not making the NCII public.

Sexual solicitation

We do not allow people to use its products and services to ask for or offer sex, sexual services, or sexual content in exchange for money or something else of value.

Suicide and self-injury

We work to remove any content about suicide and self-harm that could be dangerous. We also know that people may use our services to talk about mental health, share their stories, or join groups with others who have been affected by suicide or self-injury.

This includes the following (without limitation):

  • Supporting general ways people can end their lives, such as with a gun, hanging, or drug overdose.
  • Encouraging someone to take their life.
  • Showing images of real or attempted suicide.
  • Praising those who have died by suicide for taking their own life.

Self-injury content demonstrates, praises, or inspires physical harm to oneself, including through cutting, burning, or carving one’s skin. It also includes content that encourages or instructs on eating disorders, or systematic over or under-eating.

Terrorism and violent extremism

We do not allow content that praises or supports terrorists or violent extremists, helps them to recruit, or encourages or enables their activities. We look to the United Nations Security Council’s Consolidated List to identify terrorists or terrorist groups. Violent extremists include people who embrace an ideology of violence or violent hatred towards another group.

We will delete the Cento Sharp Consulting, LLC account of any user posting terrorism and violent extremism content.

Trafficking

We do not allow any content that perpetrates human trafficking. Trafficking happens when someone exploits someone else for personal gain by depriving them of their human rights.

Trafficking commonly includes three parts:

  • The act of recurring, moving, relocating, paying for, or abducting people.
  • The use of—or threat of—force, lies, trickery, or coercion to do these activities.
  • The activities are done for money, status, or some other kind of gain.

Trafficking includes forcing people to work, marry, engage in sexual activity, or have medical treatments or operations without their consent and is not limited to any age or background.

Violent threats, incitement, and glorification of violence

We do not permit content that encourages violence against other people through violent threats or incitement.

  • Threats of violence are words that show a specific intention to cause someone serious physical harm.
  • Incitement is material that encourages, urges, or is likely to result in serious physical harm to a person or group. We also do not allow the glorification of violence through content that praises or supports real acts of violence causing serious physical harm to people or groups, including violence that happened in the past.
