Community Standards

This document is intended to cover the basic rules of the FYSSO website and community.
Please see TERMS AND CONDITIONS as well as our PRIVACY POLICY for more details.

Moderation aims
FYSSO is primarily a dating site; however we do allow members to post blogs on their own page. Our aim is to ensure this platform is safe.

Community standards

These are simple guidelines which we expect all participants in the community areas of the FYSSO website to abide by, all of which directly inform our approach to community moderation (detailed below). These apply across the site, while moderation decisions are also informed by the context in which comments are made.

  1. We welcome debate and dissent, but personal attacks (on other users or any individual), persistent trolling and mindless abuse will not be tolerated.
  2. We understand that people often feel strongly about issues, but we will consider removing any content that others might find extremely offensive or threatening. Please respect other people's views and beliefs and consider your impact on others when making your contribution.
  3. We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other forms of hate-speech, or post that could be interpreted as such.
  4. We will remove any content that may put us in legal jeopardy, such as potentially libelous or defamatory postings, or material posted in potential breach of copyright.
  5. We will remove any posts that are obviously commercial or otherwise spam-like. Our aim is that this site should provide a space for people to interact with each other, and we actively discourage commercial entities passing themselves off as individuals, in order to post advertising material or links. This may also apply to people or organizations who frequently post propaganda or external links.
  6. Nudity and Pornography FYSSO has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance.

In short:
- If you act with maturity and consideration for other users, you should have no problems.
- Don't be unpleasant. Demonstrate and share the intelligence, wisdom and humor we know you possess.
- Take some responsibility for the quality of the conversations, blogs posts and emails in which you're participating. Help make this an intelligent place for dating and fun and it will be.

Moderation approach
Participants who willfully ignore the community standards, participation guidelines or terms and conditions will have their membership canceled and will not be allowed to rejoin
This is not an action that we take lightly or arbitrarily. However, we are aiming to create and maintain an online experience consistent with our core values, and we reserve the right to make decisions which we feel support that. Please be aware that moderators may contact you via email in relation to your participation, especially where an issue comes up in relation to these community standards. Any advice they give/request they make should be adhered to, as our moderators are employed to enforce these community standards, Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Policy.
