Blocksmith Community Guidelines

Blocksmith is all about 3D creation and distribution, sharing with friends and community collaborations. For many Blocksmith users, this is a journey into uncharted territory, where creations are being experienced through virtual and augmented reality technology.

We have developed these community guidelines with our passion for creation and what we learned from working with the Education space for years.

Note: A big part of the Blocksmith system is users managing their own workspaces (edu, community, business). We expect workspace owners to hold their users to these guidelines and we may intervene if community guidelines are not upheld.

With that said, here are the community guidelines (inspired by the structure Discord used for their guidelines).

THE FOLLOWING IS AWESOME:

  • Creating fun, interesting, thoughtful, meaningful, and educational experiences and sharing them with friends and communities

  • Playing public experiences and leaving encouraging, constructive feedback.

THE FOLLOWING IS NOT TOLERATED. WE WILL REMOVE CONTENT AND ISSUE A WARNING. SUBSEQUENT MISCONDUCT AND CASES OF EXTREME SEVERITY WILL RESULT IN ACCOUNT DELETION:

  • Posting nudity or sexually explicit content

  • Sharing content that violates another person's contractual, personal, intellectual property or other rights. Do not share or post content that violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), as described in our Terms of Service.

  • Sharing content glorifying or promoting, in general, self-harm or suicide. This includes any content that encourages others to: cut or injure themselves; embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or commit suicide rather than, for example, seeking counseling or treatment. Online communities have the power to lift people up from dark places - be the kind of person who lifts others. If you notice that someone is in need of urgent help, please contact your local authorities.

    Credit again goes to Discord for this paragraph.

  • Even if many games have a shooter component, we do not allow glorification or celebration of violence. Keep it lighthearted.

  • Posting comments that are not civil and/or encouraging. If you want to blow off steam with your comments, please consider using other platforms.

THE FOLLOWING IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE AND WILL RESULT IN IMMEDIATE CONTENT REMOVAL AND ACCOUNT DELETION:

  • Posting content that promotes, advocates for, or condones racism, bigotry, hatred, or violence against individuals or groups based on factors like (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, disability, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity is not allowed.

    June 2020 clarification: We stand in solidarity with victims of systemic racism and will enforce action on content meeting the above described criteria without hesitation. Don’t act surprised.

  • Posting content that encourages others to engage in any targeted abuse or harassment against another person.

  • Attempting to steal another user’s account.

To report any of the above activities, please send an email to abuse@blocksmithxr.com.
