Feautor Community Guidelines

Respect the Feautor Community

Please don’t abuse our site. Every new feature on Feautor involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and thousands of users respect that trust, so please be one of them.

We Review Content Flagged As Inappropriate

Okay, this one is more about us than you. When a submission gets flagged as inappropriate, we review the content to determine whether it violates our Terms of Use. Flagged content is not automatically taken down by the system. If we remove your content after reviewing it, you can assume that we removed it purposefully, and you should take our warning notification seriously. Take a deep breath, read our Terms of Use and try to see it from our perspective. If you find other content on Feautor with the same violations, please flag them so we can review them as well!

Don’t Cross the Line

Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble:

Feautor is a site designed to serve creators and participators in religious community. There are many other sites out there for other content. Please respect our space and use it as it is intended. Feautor is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your content, even if it’s a video of yourself, don’t post it on Feautor. Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. Respect copyright. Only upload content that you made or that you have obtained the rights to use. This means don’t upload videos you didn’t make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without their permission. Read our Copyright Tips for more information. We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express unpopular points of view. But we don’t permit hate speech which contains slurs or the malicious use of stereotypes intended to attack or demean a particular gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or nationality. There is zero tolerance for predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, invading privacy, or the revealing of other members’ personal information. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from Feautor. Don’t try to cheat the system. No gamed thumbnails, spamming tags, or creating dummy accounts that do things a human wouldn’t do. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don’t try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around them—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created. Violations of the Terms of Use may result in a warning notification or may result in termination of your account and deletion of all your content. We decide whether we believe your violation of our Terms of Use should result in termination of your account. If you have an account terminated you are prohibited from ever signing up for another account!

Feautor is for the Community

Remember that this is your community! Each and every user of Feautor makes the site what it is, so don’t be afraid to dig in and get involved!

Have fun with the site. There’s a lot here to see, to read, to listen to, to interact with, and lots of folks making amazing stuff—one of them might be you! Equipment’s getting cheaper and easier to use all the time, so dive in and enjoy. Let folks know what you think. Feedback’s part of the experience, and when done with respect, can be a great way to make friends, share stories, and make your time on Feautor richer. So leave comments, rate content, make your own responses to content that affect you — there’s a lot going on and a lot of ways to participate here. You may not like everything you see. Some of the content here may offend you—if you find that it violates our Terms of Use, then click “Flag as Inappropriate” under the content you’re watching to submit it for review by Feautor staff. If it doesn’t, then consider just clicking on something else—why waste time engaging content you don’t like? That’s it! Thanks for reading!

I really like the tone of this document. We should keep it loose and friendly as it is now. It is actually not too dry to read.

Note the consistent use of “Feautor” here. I like this form of the name better than the one in the welcome statement.

Do we actually have a way to set an “inappropriate” flag in the system? This would be, I assume, similar to the YouTube functionality.

In the “don’t cross the line” what about religious examples? Cartoons of Mohammed? Pictures of crucifix in urine?

Hi Friends, I’m little schock with this part in the document:

“Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation. Don’t post content showing dangerous or illegal acts, like animal abuse, drug abuse, or bomb making. Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your content shows someone getting hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don’t post it. Feautor is not a shock site. Don’t post gross-out videos of accidents, dead bodies and stuff like that. This includes war footage if it’s intended to shock or disgust. Respect copyright.”

I’m thinking that could be more resumed with a expresion like a: “Feautor is not for pornography or sexually explicit content… so please keep away this material from here!”

Also, we need to look more closely the flagging system … Carlos can build this?

Good point RoDrigo! I like your wording a lot more, the other is just the basic stuff I “captured” from YouTube’s statement.

If there was one thing I would have changed about this episdoe, it would have been the treatment of the CMC after it was made known that they were Gabby Gums. True, they did spill some major secrets about a lot of ponies, but come on, they’re kids! If a couple of 3rd graders in our world had done something similar I doubt that the entire town would ostracize them in such a similar manner.
