Community Guideline Tips

Want a little more insight into the limits and exceptions in the Community Guidelines? Here are some helpful examples and tips:

Hate Speech and Language
"Hate speech" refers to content that promotes hatred against members of a protected group. For instance, racist or sexist content may be considered hate speech. Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation, but not okay to make insulting generalizations about people of a particular nationality. Please be aware of the language you are using on this site. We frown upon language that insults other users and promotes disrespect.

When you create something original, you own the copyright for it. Likewise, when other people create content, they have a copyright to it. As a creative community, it’s essential that everyone on Overland Arena respect the copyrights of others. If you’re not sure if something will violate someone’s copyright, the safest thing to do is to create something completely original.If it’s all yours you never have to worry about copyright—you own it. If you’ve recorded something from a DVD, videotaped your TV screen, or downloaded a video online, do not post it!
