Prohibited behavior

In addition to not submitting unwelcome content, the following behaviors are banned on Voten:

Asking for votes or engaging in vote manipulation: Vote manipulation is against the Voten rules, whether it is manual, programmatic, or otherwise. Some common forms of vote cheating are: Using multiple accounts, voting services, or any other software to increase or decrease vote scores.

NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content

Content that contains nudity, or insulting, which a reasonable viewer may not want to be seen accessing in a public or formal setting such as in a workplace must be tagged as NSFW. This tag can be applied to individual pieces of content or to entire channels.

Porn, however, is not allowed on Voten! No matter the kind or category. For example, you may post an artwork containing nudity(and tag it as NSFW), but you shouldn't post a hentai image.

Enforcement

We have different of ways of applying our rules, including, but not limited to:

Moderation within channels

Individual groups on Voten which are called channels may have their own rules in addition to ours (as long as they don't break ours) and their own moderators to enforce them. Voten provides tools to aid moderators but does not prescribe their usage.

Please, note that channels on Voten are not owned by its moderators. They're just being moderated by them. This means even though we do our best not to interfere, we still have the right to take over a channel to take necessary actions if needed. We usually do this when a channel has lack of available moderator to add new ones.

name/username reservation

Creating more than one user account or channels just to reserve their names for future use is prohibited. We delete such accounts/channels; and in case of repeating such behavor, we ban creator's account/IP.
