Community Guidelines
Updated on January 2, 2018

Identity Misrepresentation

The creation of fake pages is prohibited. Fake pages are those pages which claim to represent an individual or group that did not give permission for the page to be created.

NSFW Content

Content considered "not safe for work" (NSFW) is permitted in posts on MakerSupport, but must be marked as such to prevent it from being shown to users under the age of 18.

Adult content may not be included in cover artwork or profile pictures, as those images are publicly visible without a content warning for underage users.

Adult content may not be monetized if it is pornographic in nature. However, adult content which is artistic in nature may be monetized. This will be judged on a case-by-case basis and creators will always be consulted before any changes are made to their monetization status.

We understand that this is very vague, so here are some general rules. Cartoons and depictions are nearly always acceptable. Real-life photos and videos of sexual acts are very often considered pornography.

Foreign Speech Restrictions

We permit speech which is constitutional according to the First Amendment case law of the United States Supreme Court.

Some foreign governments have passed legislation which prohibits some speech online which is not prohibited in the United States. If a case were to arise in which we were asked to remove such content by a foreign entity, we would refuse to comply.

Illegal Activity

Conducting illegal activity on or through MakerSupport is prohibited. This includes child pornography, money laundering, the sale of illegal substances, and other activities illegal under State law in the State of Indiana or under federal law in the United States. This applies even if the user is not a United States citizen. Accounts and pages engaged in such activity are subject to termination without advance notice.

Enforcement of Guidelines

We believe in a policy of "innocent until proven guilty" with regards to the serious penalty of page deletion. However we retain the right to remove pages at any time, with or without advance notice. This is not a power we intend to exercise, but it is one we must reserve for the most extreme of circumstances.

If you would like to report a page or user for a violation of these guidelines, please send an email to [email protected]
