Guidelines for Near Community
Last updated December 30, 2015
“Don’t tell us, SHOW us!” - Team Near
Do These Things:
Get Creative! Pick a place that you love because you can’t rave about a place you’re not
excited about. Near
is a place to share your favorite local experiences with our community members and is enhanced when we share
in a genuine way. On Near, don’t tell us, SHOW us!
Do be clear and explanatory when you create a video - remember you’ve only got 10 seconds
per video! The
best way is to highlight what your favorite item is on the menu, the ambiance of a place, what makes it
different that would make a viewer want to visit.
Don’t forget to have fun and stay positive! Treat others in the community the way you would
want to be
treated. There are people from all walks of life on Near, and many may not share your views, but we ask that
you are polite and respectful to the experience of the other users.
Don’t Do These Things:
Don’t take your clothes off. If you wouldn’t share your videos with your boss or your
parents, it does not
belong here. Accounts found in abuse of this will be disabled, and your access to Near may be terminated.
Don’t be inappropriate or irrelevant. Near is a place to share your local favorites and
things that you
love, cherish, and want to share. This means, videos with inappropriate or irrelevant Content may be removed
Don’t share explicit or illegal content. If you are found sharing explicitly violent or
(including the glorification of violence and/or images of extreme gore), your account will be disabled and
we will take appropriate action, which may include reporting your activity to the authorities. Additionally,
this is not the place for the promotion or sale of illicit or controlled materials (drugs, drug
paraphernalia, firearms, tobacco, adult materials, etc.).
Don’t harass other users - NO TROLLING. Any form of harassment, bullying, or threatening
another user is expressly forbidden. We want our community to feel safe and comfortable sharing their lives
on Near, and if you are reported to have been lessening that experience through harassment or any other
means, your account will be disabled and your access to Near may be terminated.
Don’t promote or glorify self-harm. As with violence and illegal activities, we will take
any accounts that feature or encourage self-harm of any form. Communication and awareness of these illnesses
and behaviors is supported, but Near is not the place for any active promotion or glorification of these
