Our goals in creating Polytics is to allow users to present and learn about other’s views on issues that affect politics at local, state and national levels.
Do’s and Dont’s
This is Allowed. Do this.
Meaningful conversations and Fun (Allowed)
Share your thoughts on politics and other related topics with your friends.
Use this platform to find what you and your friends truly think about these topics in a fun and insightful manner.
Share your thoughts, crack jokes, post pics, and the most important thing to do on Polytics is to have fun and learn various views on topics of your interest.
You are doing all this in public, so be mindful of that when you start conversations, participate in conversations or respond to conversations of others.
Follow as many conversations you are interested in and write responses and let your opinion be heard.
This is not allowed. Don’t do this
Start Private Conversations (Not Allowed)
Polytics is not the place for private conversations. If you are looking for private chat, there are several great options available from Apple, Facebook and others. Please use those for private chats. All chats on Polytics are NOT private by design.
Threatening or bullying others (Not Allowed)
Don’t post threats of violence against others or promote violence against others.
Don’t engage in targeted abuse or harassment, such as creating an account whose sole purpose is to post abusive messages. Basically, any content that delivers or encourages physical or psychological harm to another person is not allowed. Spirited discussion is fine, and we understand that the line between that and malicious intent is difficult to draw. But if we feel that your intention is to harass another person, we may take action on your account.
Posting hate speech (Not Allowed)
Hate speech has no place on Polytics. Don’t post hateful messages, start hateful conversations, use hateful language in your profile or use a hateful image as your avatar. We will remove it, and will most likely terminate your account. Hate speech includes content that directly attacks people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, gender identity or serious disabilities or diseases.
Posting pornographic material (Not allowed)
There’s enough porn in the world. So don’t share it on Polytics. Don’t ruin other users experience. If porn is your thing, please find another place for it and leave Polytics for politics.
Publishing people’s private information (Not Allowed)
A simple rule to follow is to not post other people’s private information. Remember that everything you post on Polytics is available to people worldwide. Don’t do this and please respect privacy of others.
Impersonate people (Not Allowed)
We are “pro-truth” with no specific party or group affiliation. We like to discover the views of users on Polytics. We love and appreciate parody and humor. However don’t impersonate others in a manner that misleads, confuses, or deceives others. If you’re creating a parody account on Polytics, your account display name should include words like “not” or “fake” or “fan” and your avatar should not be the exact trademark or logo of the subject of your parody. We reserve the right to reclaim display names on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim on those names. We don’t want people to be confused about who is who.
