Business Community Guidelines
Our mission is to provide a trusted platform where businesses work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.
We want everyone to feel welcome, safe, and respected when using Weird Street. For that reason, we've developed a set of Community Guidelines describing what behaviors are – and are not – allowed on Weird Street. The crux of our Guidelines can be boiled down to one simple statement:
Everyone here is your neighbor. Please treat each other with respect.
We rely on you, the businesses who make up the Weird Street community, to report content that violates these Guidelines. Violating the Guidelines has consequences, which may include removal of content, suspension of posting privileges, or even a permanent ban from Weird Street. Because of the diversity of people in any neighborhood, please keep in mind that while something may be disagreeable to you, it may not violate our Community Guidelines.
Be helpful, not hurtful
The heart and soul of Weird Street are the helpful conversations that happen between business owners. When conversations turn disagreeable, everyone on Weird Street suffers. Our Guidelines prohibit posts and replies that discriminate against, attack, insult, shame, bully, or belittle others.
Don’t use Weird Street as a soapbox
Weird Street is a communication platform that allows businesses to mobilize and get stuff done like never before. However, favorite causes that are pushed too hard, political campaigning, and personal views on controversial issues will inevitably rub one’s neighbors the wrong way. We rely on our members to report those who are over-posting, campaigning, and posting or ranting about controversial, non-local issues.
Promote local businesses and commerce the right way
On Weird Street, we support local businesses and encourage everyone to share helpful information about the businesses and services in the community. We also encourage members to buy, sell, and give things away. Weird Street is actively working on solutions for local businesses to participate in a marketplace.
Use your true identity
Weird Street is a network for you and the businesses in your local community. To that end, using your true identity and honestly representing yourself are key parts of being a Weird Street member.
Keep it clean and legal
Keep all content and activity family-friendly and legal, and adhere to our rules about regulated goods and services.
