Canvas Code of Conduct
Canvas is a place to share and play with images. Whether you're posting a new image, replying to a post with a comment, remix or sticker, you are participating in the Canvas community and shaping what it becomes.
Our goal is to create safe, fun environments for creativity. Anyone can create their own group on Canvas and decide for themselves what's considered on-topic or appropriate for their group, however all groups and all posts on Canvas must also abide by the Code of Conduct.
Please take these rules seriously and flag any inappropriate content you see. Violations will be removed along with any replies; other more borderline content may be made less prominent. Repeat or egregious offenders will have their accounts deactivated.
Everyone's workplace differs, what we really mean is to keep things clean enough that most people wouldn't be embarrassed to be caught looking at it at work or with their family. Does it seem dirty? Does it appear disturbing?
No sexually provocative content
- Nudity or partial nudity is not allowed, even in drawings.
- Do not draw breasts or genitals, even non-sexually.
- Anything less than normal street clothes is not allowed if the purpose of the image is to be provocative.
- Do not post images depicting sex acts. Even if it's only touching or the activity is fake or implied, if the act or the image has a sexual purpose it still isn't okay.
- Do not post anything sexually inappropriate or sexualize images of people, particularly if the image involves a minor. This includes anything that creates a focus on breasts or genitals, such as arrows or stamps.
No violent, gross or disturbing content
There are lots of places on the Internet to see gory accidents, injuries and other shocking content, but Canvas isn't one of them. Even historical photos or content that is in the news may not be appropriate for Canvas.
Canvas is a creative community, everyone is encouraged to try new things and take creative risks. If you're feeling shy, you can even post anonymously. However, it's not okay to be mean to people. Think twice before posting something if you wouldn't say it in person.
If you think something is lame or over-hyped, you can down-vote it, but it's not okay to be rude or insulting. Don't single out other users for ridicule and don't harass, intimidate, threaten, bully, troll or otherwise be a jerk on Canvas.
No hate speech or intolerance
It is completely unacceptable to attack or demean a person or group of people based on race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation or disability. This includes labels and jokes that use slurs or offensive stereotypes.
Respect the privacy and safety of others
Do not post pictures of people against their wishes. Revealing personally identifying information about someone else, such as their name, address, email address or phone number is strictly prohibited. Behavior that endangers the safety and integrity of the Canvas community or is in any way malicious may result in permanent banning.
Canvas is what you make of it. Be engaged, make cool stuff and help us keep things tidy.
Flag inappropriate posts
If you see something that violates the Code of Conduct, don't sticker, remix or reply to it, please flag it so that it can be reviewed.
Don't ask for stickers
Earn stickers by making things people like. Don't directly ask for stickers or post polls asking for people to vote with stickers.
Each group has its own topic and rules and anyone can create their own group, make sure what you're posting is appropriate for the group it's in.
Don't post the same or similar images to various threads or groups.
Don't post inappropriate links
This includes misleading links or links to content which violates this code of conduct.
Do not post infringing materials.
Don't encourage violations
Be careful not to encourage or entice other users to violate the Code of Conduct.
Never impersonate Canvas staff, moderators or other users.
One account per user
We ask that each user only create one Canvas account.
Thanks for reading the Code of Conduct. Canvas is constantly growing and changing and these rules will continue to evolve along with it, any feedback is appreciated.
