Guidelines and Moderation

The following types of content are not permitted on Scooploop:

  1. Posts or comments which can be reasonably understood as being racist, sexist, homphobic or generally discriminatory against a group of people.
  2. Offensive posts or comments attacking users personally. You can very well disagree with someone without personal attacks. If emotions get the better of you, edit your comment yourself and an apology can do wonders.
  3. Brigading, i.e. encouraging others to be offensive towards someone or encouraging others to disrupt discussions or loops.
  4. Content that contains nudity, pornography, or profanity. If you really into posting pornography or similar material, there are many better places on the internet for that. Use those instead.
  5. Disclosing personal details of other users against their will. That includes but is not limited to: Disclosing someone real name, address or phone number. Accept the privacy of other users!
  6. Spam, i.e. repeatedly posting the same content or posting content off-topic in a community.
  7. Posting deliberate disinformation.
  8. Sharing links to phishing sites, fraud schemes or similar.
  9. Impersonating other users

Loop Moderation

Loop moderators have to abide to the content policies listed above.

However, they are free to set further rules for their community, such as their own code of conduct or what is considered off-topic in their community.

What do I do if I come across inappropriate content?

See reporting inappropriate content.

Sometimes emotions get the better of people and they may post content that is inappropriate. To let us know about something you feel is unsuitable, click the 3 horizontal dots available on any content on the site, click the ‘Report’ option, let us know how the content is inappropriate and we’ll deal with it as soon as possible.

Enforcing Moderation Guidelines

We have several ways of enforcing our rules, including (but not limited to)

  1. Removing posts or comments,or closing discussion threads.
  2. We ask you nicely and politely to stop doing what you are doing
  3. We might ask you less politely the second time
  4. Temporary removal of posting/commenting permissions (temporary suspending your account)
  5. You might get banned from Scooploop alltogether

If your account has been suspended..

If your account has been suspended temporarily or permanently, you are not permitted to set up another account to circumvent the suspension ("ban evasion"). If Scooploop becomes aware of this your account will be suspended immediately and a temporary suspension will become permanent.
