Safety and Respect
These Community Guidelines exist to shape and guide BMajor and the growing number of Users who are using it. BMajor a safe, diverse, transparent, and respectful place where all Users can feel excited, supported, and happy to exist, while still allowing for different - and sometimes even opposing - points of view. These guidelines summarize a thorough, thoughtful, and living internal policy with guidance from community and safety experts. We hope these guidelines will help Circle Creators build a safe and supportive environment in which they can continue to create, share, and build lasting relationships with their Circle Members.
BMajor is for Users who put something original out into the world. As a Circle Creator, you may not post creations that infringe on others’ intellectual property rights.
You cannot create fake accounts or collect money for things you are not actually doing. For example, you cannot create a fan page for someone else
You cannot pretend to be or impersonate someone else by using the name, brand or works of another to deceive other Users. We will review satire and comedy in a different way as we believe these subgenres are original creations.
You cannot use BMajor as a prank or to fund non-activity. For example, a Circle Creator cannot collect funds for “not doing” something.
If you want to read more about our intellectual property rights policy, you can find more information in section 10 of our Terms of Service.
Bullying, harassment, and threats
We do not tolerate any form bullying or harassment because BMajor is a safe place for all the Users. At the same time, we want people to feel free to express themselves, be critical, and discuss controversial issues and share different points of view. We recognize that discussing celebrities, media or other public figures can sometimes involve harsh criticism, and we believe that is an appropriate part of free debate. However, we draw the line when it comes to harassing private figures or taking any action that might affect people’s physical safety, regardless of whether these people are private or public figures. As much as we want you to be able to express yourself, we want all of our Users to have the right to express their opinion without feeling intimidated. Even the most polarizing conversations should take place in the most civil and respectful way. Here is how we define these behaviors.
Bullying and harassment:
You cannot attempt to intimidate anyone, either directly or by using your influence over others. We treat real-life interactions more seriously than online interactions when analyzing whether a line has been crossed because it can be more threatening and lead to physical violence. When both sides engage in similar behavior, such as feuds between public figures, we are less likely to take action.
Anyone on BMajor should be able to express their opinion in a way that does not threaten another person. In this respect, we take threats of violence very seriously. Any Circle Creator or Circle Member threatening the well-being of an individual or group of people will be removed. This includes threatening behavior such as stalking or inciting others to commit violent acts. If you are a victim of this behavior and feel that your personal safety is at risk, we suggest you contact your local law enforcement, in addition to reporting the behavior to us.
BMajor connects Circle Creators to their Circle Members all over the world. We are a global platform built on promoting creativity, which makes us a very inclusive group. Therefore, there is no room on BMajor for hate speech, such as calling for violence, exclusion, or segregation. This includes serious attacks on people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, serious medical conditions, caste, or immigration status.
When reviewing an account for a potential hate speech violation, we consider some of the following questions:
Is there a call for violence against someone based on a characteristic listed above?
Does the User use dehumanizing language when talking about people based on one of the above characteristics?
Is the User using racial slurs or negative depictions of someone based on a characteristic like those listed above?
Does the User mock or deny the experience of victims of hate crimes such as the Holocaust?
Is the User targeting people based on their immigration status in a discriminatory way or simply discussing immigration policy?
Is the statement legitimate criticism of a State, institution, or belief or does the context make it clear that the User is using code words or proxies to attack people based on the above characteristics?
This list is not exhaustive, but we want to be transparent about how we work in the gray areas between speech and action. There can be a fine line between political comments and hate speech. If you come across what you believe to be hate speech on BMajor, please take the time to report it.
As we strive to create a community that is inclusive and diverse, we want to consider the different ages and sensitivities within our User base. We are not trying to create or reinforce arbitrary frameworks of “right” or “wrong,” but rather want to give people the choice of whether or not to view adult Content. To help Users make these decisions, we distinguish adult Content (Content containing mature themes) from all-audience Content by applying an 18+ flag to the former. We define “mature themes” as any audio, visual, or audiovisual creations depicting explicit sexual situations, including nudity in sexual contexts. We ask Circle Creators to flag themselves as 18+ if their Content may be considered inappropriate for people under 18 years of age. We realize the exact age threshold may vary depending on where you are, but most places require a certain level of maturity to view these creations and engage in these activities. Below is a brief, non-exhaustive breakdown for guidance.
Examples of Content we view as containing mature themes:
Works depicting real people in the nude in sexual contexts.
Animations or illustrations depicting nudity in sexual contexts, and animations or illustrations featuring sexual interactions.
Audio Content that features simulated sexual interactions.
Examples of Content we will not view as mature:
Works featuring nudity that is not designed to be sexually gratifying, such as photos of sculptures or paintings.
Works featuring nudity or sexual situations that are designed for educational purposes.
A standup comedy set featuring profanity or “adult” language.
We ask that all Users keep the public spaces on BMajor (meaning profile pictures, descriptions, page banners, etc.) appropriate for all audiences. Content depicting mature themes must be reserved for Circle Member-only posts and must be clearly identified.
As mentioned above, you can post nude creations on BMajor of both real and fictional subjects. Just be sure to mark posts with mature themes as “Circle Member Only” and ensure your page is flagged as 18+ if your Content will feature such themes. As a reminder, you should never post or share nude creations of any individual under the age of 18, including yourself. As a strong commitment to child safety, we will work with law enforcement whenever we come across child exploitation material.
Pornography and Sexual Services
We do not allow pornographic materials or sexual services on BMajor, which we define as “real people engaging in sexual acts such as masturbation or sexual intercourse on camera.”
Offensive and Graphic Content
We understand that artists sometimes push boundaries to create thought-provoking Content, so we do not review offensive and graphic creations with strict guidelines. However, we have zero tolerance for the glorification of violence and sexual violence which includes bestiality, rape, and child exploitation (i.e., sexualized depiction of minors). This is true for illustrated, animated, audio or any other type of Content. BMajor reserves the right to review and remove accounts that may violate this guideline. We also do not allow other fringe sexual fetish creations, such as incest, necrophilia, or fetish creations that are hard to distinguish from non-consensual sex.
We take a strong stance against doxing, which is sharing an individual’s private information or aggregating their public information for the purpose of intimidating them through harassment.
We take this stance against doxing because it is used to silence or intimidate people with different viewpoints on the Internet. It can cause extensive emotional trauma and can put the victim’s physical safety at risk. The most classic form of doxing is when an individual’s private personal information is shared. This could be information such as a phone number or home address. The definition of private personal information can vary and may mean that it is simply very difficult to find. We also consider it to be doxing when an individual’s non-private information is aggregated. For example, we would consider it doxing if someone’s profile picture were combined with their real name, all of their known social media accounts, and the city they lived in. No matter the specific information shared, we also evaluate the context around why it was shared. If it looks like this information is being shared for the purpose of making it easier for a large group to harass that individual, we are likely to consider it doxing.
When doxing takes place, we lose the ability to have conversations. Doxing is not speech countering speech - it is speech shutting down others’ ability to speak. It removes our ability to discuss ideas, grow as individuals and have a safe space for disagreement.
Who Cannot Use BMajor
Because BMajor empowers people financially, we restrict both the types of media and projects that can be posted on BMajor, and also which people can and cannot receive funds through BMajor. After creating a BMajor account, any Circle Creator caught in the act or convicted of making credible violent threats, committing violent crimes, malicious doxing, coordinating nonviolent harm (such as fraud, money laundering and gambling), or encouraging others to do any of these activities may be banned from using BMajor.
Violent, Criminal, and Hateful Organizations
People or projects affiliated with dangerous, hateful, or violent groups, espousing their related ideologies and conspiracy theories, or using their codewords and slogans may be restricted from using BMajor. Members of those groups and people who praise or support the actions of those groups may also be restricted. The groups include (but are not limited to) terrorist organizations, organized criminal groups such as drug cartels or criminal hackers, and hate organizations such as fascist, white supremacist and white nationalist groups, anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic organizations, as well as any group dedicated to attacking LGBTQI+ people. Users may discuss these groups in their Content for educational, reporting, or debunking purposes. However, actively supporting or praising these groups or their members through Content shared through BMajor may result in account termination. We will consider renouncements of past actions and affiliations on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions about a group’s suitability for BMajor, please contact us.
Harmful and illegal activities
BMajor is not a place for anyone who facilitates harmful or illegal activities. You cannot advocate, threaten, or show you causing harm to yourself, other people, or animals. In the same way, you cannot promote illegal activities such as property crime, distribution of illegal weapons, or drug manufacturing.
We do not allow any Content that promotes or glorifies self-harm or Users that encourage self-injury, suicide, or an eating disorder. If we believe there is a credible risk the User will harm themselves, we will work with law enforcement when needed. However, we allow Content that promote awareness such as self-harm survival stories, especially if they have educational value. If you or someone close to you might be in danger of hurting themselves, please contact local authorities or seek help: http://www.suicide.org/suicide-hotlines.html
We do not allow Users to collect money for an illegal purpose or encourage others to break the law. Users may not promote illegal weapons, drug manufacturing techniques or distribution, or property crime.
We ask those Circle Creators who are posting dangerous stunts to include a clear disclaimer. We also require that these types of posts be marked as “Circle Member Only” if they are too graphic or dangerous for a general audience.
BMajor has zero tolerance for behaviors that exploit minors. Users actively facilitating exploitation or attempting to exploit minors will be removed from BMajor. We will report all users engaging in such activity to legal authorities upon removal.
BMajor is a private club that connects people around shared interests. And while we understand the value of marketing and promotion, we do not tolerate spam. Please be creative and original in your expression, do not post repetitive comments or send unwanted messages to other Users. These are some of the actions we consider to be spamming, which is prohibited on BMajor:
Do not create pledging schemes.
Do not use BMajor to release or link to malware or phishing schemes.
Do not make misleading posts to grow your Circle Membership.
Do not post comments on other Circle Creators’ pages promoting your own page.
Do not send a large number of unsolicited messages asking for support.
Do not use incorrect tagging in order to drive more search results.
When reviewing reports about spam, we will distinguish between commercial spam and friendly abuse. If we determine the spam is friendly abuse, the User will be flagged; repeat offenses will lead to full removal of the Circle Creator or Circle Member account. Commercial spamming by an account that is not a legitimate Circle Creator will be removed from BMajor.
Circle Member Conduct
These Community Guidelines apply to Circle Creators and Circle Members alike. While we empower Circle Creators to manage their circles, there are some instances in which we will review reports for Circle Members’ behavior. We will review reports of hate speech, harassment, and solicitation very carefully, and we will take action against a Circle Member account if it violates these guidelines. Please know we keep these reviews confidential. If you feel unsafe because a Circle Member is stalking or harassing you, you should always try to seek the help of your local law enforcement and contact the closest cybercrime unit as they will have the most tools and means to help. BMajor will work closely with law enforcement when there is an investigation and if a law enforcement agency sends us a subpoena.
Financial Advice Content
Because BMajor values all Users safety, we encourage financial advice Content consumers to consult with licensed financial professionals before making any investment decisions.
Chargebacks are initiated when Circle Members reach out to their financial institutions to dispute a transaction. To protect Circle Creators, BMajor will review excessive and potentially fraudulent chargebacks and may prevent Circle Members from subscribing to additional Circle Creators during that review. If a Circle Member’s chargebacks are found to be fraudulent, BMajor reserves the right to suspend or remove their account.
BMajor is a diverse club and while you may not necessarily agree with someone’s point of view, it may not be a violation of our Community Guidelines. However, when you see Content on BMajor that you feel violates our community guidelines, please take the time to report it by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org A member of our team will review the report and if our Community Guidelines have been violated, we will contact the User to address it. Initially, we try to educate our Users to help them understand how a rule has been broken and how to remedy the issue. In cases where the violation is particularly bad or intentional, we may take further action such as suspending or terminating their account. In the most extreme cases we may ban a Circle Creator from using BMajor. No matter what happens, we always give Users the opportunity to appeal a decision by contacting us and sending any relevant information they believe was not considered.
