Respect the GeoReader Community
We're not asking for the kind of respect reserved for nuns, deities and founding fathers. We mean don't abuse the site. Every cool new community feature on GeoReader involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust. Please be one of them.
When used in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the driver to operate the vehicle in a safe manner, maintain a full surveillance of all driving conditions at all times, and not become distracted by the GeoReader application, its content or message. Failure by the driver to pay full attention to the operation of the vehicle and road conditions while the vehicle is in motion could result in an accident
Don't be a troublemaker
Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble:
- GeoReader is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your talking point, even if it's about yourself, don't post it on GeoReader.
- Don't post Talking Points talking about bad stuff like animal abuse, drug abuse, under-age drinking and smoking, or bomb making. Assume your Mother will hear what you write.
- Talking points describing graphic or gratuitous violence are not allowed. If your talking point threatens someone or something, don't post it here.
- The GeoReader App is not a shock application but rather a method of sharing interesting information to others. Don't post talking points about things intended to shock or disgust.
- Respect copyrighted material. Get permission if necessary. If you feel something is a violation of copyrighted material then please send information containing the id # of the talking point to firstname.lastname@example.org with Copyright in the subject line.
- We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).
- Everyone hates nonsense and wasted time. Don’t create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase listens. If you wish to post to the public database, make sure your information is sensible and well written. On the public database, It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including private messages.
- If you can avoid placing your talking point near an existing point then please do so. It will avoid confusion. Approved Historical markers and paid advertisement have highest priority messages in case of any the need to order unread talking point arises.
- Private Talking points are your responsibility and GeoReader cannot be held responsible for their content. Even so please use this feature with respect for others.
- If you wish to advertise your business or an event, please use the Advertising process. Unauthorized Solicitations will be deleted or modified in a way that you will not be happy with.
Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.
We Enforce These Guidelines
Georeader staff review flagged videos 24 hours a day, seven days a week to determine whether they violate our Community Guidelines. When they do, we remove them. Sometimes a talking point doesn’t violate our Community Guidelines, but may not be appropriate for everyone. We reserve to right to make that decision at all times and our decision is final. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If your account is terminated, you won’t be allowed to create any new accounts.
