Community Guidelines / Code of Conduct

Last updated: May 13th, 2021
Basic Community Rules

The following rules must be followed in order to be part of the Not the Bee community. This is not an exhaustive list, but a common-sense guide to the proper way to conduct yourself while on our website:

  • Do not post any offensive or illegal material
  • Do not harass, disparage, belittle or bully any other user
  • Do not use profanity, or mask profanity with asterisks, or imply profanity
  • Do not share any other user's personal or private information without their consent. Further, do not share information from a private group with any users that are not a member of the group. In general, just don't share people's information or posts with users they did not intend to share it with.
  • Do not use the website as a platform to sell, promote or otherwise solicit any type of business or product
  • Do not try to circumvent any of the site's security or moderation software
  • Do not "spam" our comments section, groups or social feed. For example, repeatedly posting memes without any commentary or insight directly to the social feed would be considered "post spam" and your posts will be removed. This website is for REAL social interaction, it is not a place to dump memes or to try and dominate the social feed. You can say what you want, but be mindful to let others speak as well.
  • It's ridiculous that we have to say this, but do not glorify, talk whimsically about, romanticize or otherwise attempt to normalize any justifiably taboo topics, such as terrorism, murder, cannibalism, pedophilia, etc.
  • You may only open and maintain at most one personal account and one business or artist account. You can not create proxy accounts, or impersonate others. For free users, when your 30 day trial expires, you may not open a new account, even with another email address.

Any violation of these rules may result in immediate suspension or deletion of your account. We maintain the right to cancel your account for any reason related to violation of these rules or any other conduct that our management team deems damaging to our community.

Long story short: be nice, respect yourself, and above all else, respect others. In other words, don't be a jerk.
