Yoors Community Guidelines 1.0



Please read our first version of the Yoors community guidelines. These guidelines will also support the moderators with our moderation tool. Please share your comments and reactions, as we value your opinion.

Mission

Our mission is to empower content creators and their followers by providing ways for them to earn money by creating and sharing content. We envision a content sharing community where everyone belongs and feels valued in their participation in content creating and sharing.

Yoors is a platform where we offer several free options for content creators to share their content with others, but also give them honest options to earn money with their creations. Yoors made several functions that content creators can use to get more out of sharing their content. Yoors Love, Yoors Pay Per Post, Yoors Beneficiary, Yoors Pool, Yoors promotion and Yoors Subscription.


Community Guidelines

In order to maintain a respectful, inclusive and safe environment for everyone, we’ve created a set of community guidelines to serve as a moral compass for behavior on our platform. These standards help define what is acceptable in the Yoors Community, and explain how violations are enforced. We use the guidelines to govern our platform policies. They reflect our attitudes, expectations, and social norms.

Our community standards are rooted in the Yoors core values: respect, open-mindedness, safety, acceptance, support, freedom and enjoyment. Just like our content platform, these standards will continue to grow, evolve, and change. We have embedded examples in the community standards for unacceptable activities on Yoors. Please note that these are examples and not a complete standard list. We encourage our Yoors family to message us when encountering anything that is violating our guidelines. We want to create the best experience for all “Yoorsies”, and ask that you respect and follow these guidelines.


When Guidelines are violated

When you want to report a post that violates the guidelines, you have the option to let us know and please do. The reported posts are sent to our moderation tool. Yoors will check at the end of the moderation if guidelines have been applied correctly. Please note: Yoors will decide and act according to our guidelines, but also look at the post individually.

Members that violate community guidelines can receive a warning to adjust/delete their post or the post will be removed by the moderation tool. Members that keep repeatedly violating our guidelines, can and will be removed from the community.

You can also report a post with the broken heart icon. This is called downvoting. After several downvotes, the post is sent to the moderation tool and checked accordingly. The moderation requests are sent to a vast amount of Yoors members, who decide if they agree with the moderation. When the moderation request is approved, the post will be deleted or modified.
You can find the Down vote icon as a broken heart next to the 3 dots.

When you choose to report a post you will pay 50 Yoors Points (equal to 0.05 Euro). This is because we do not want posts being reported out of wrong intentions and avoid bullying.

Pay Per Post

The Pay Per Post function supports content creators to earn more revenue with their content. Pay Per Post is an easy paywall solution for your content instead of involving plugins on blogposts on your own website.

Yoors is a platform where we offer several free options for content creators to share the love for their content with others, but also giving them honest options to earn money with their creations.

Therefore creators that use Pay Per Post can only do this with their own original content. Every other content that is used that is not your own will lead to violation of the guidelines. This can lead to removal from Yoors or denied access to other Yoors functions.

For more detailed information you can read the community guidelines. All Pay Per Posts need to have copyright owned content.
