General Posting Guidelines

As a general "rule of thumb": If something is not appropriate IRL (in real life) in a public setting, it is probably not appropriate in the Nudie.Social community. (A naturist club is a good example of such public setting)

Guidelines on posting nude / “NSFW” content

Being an online community for naturists and nudists, full frontal nude images / videos are considered normal on Nudie.Social. Having said that, to support the stated community value of promoting naturism, nudism, social nudity, clothes-free lifestyle as wholesome and healthy lifestyles to the general public, Nudie.Social users should exercise discretion when posting nude contents.

Images, photos, videos, animations, text, writings, or any content that have one or more of the following attributes are considered unacceptable on Nudie.Social:

  • Depict provocative action or gesture
  • Depict harmful or self-harm activity
  • Depict violence or hate speech
  • Depict illegal activity
  • Highly sexualised with an intent to arouse
  • Close-up of genital e.g. “dick pic”
  • Depict sex act or pornographic
  • Produced by pornographer, or from pornographic publication
  • Subjects’ faces are cropped out or masked
  • Lack of social or artistic context e.g. nude selfie image of one person sitting in a room
  • Of commercial or marketing nature
  • Unrealistic distortion of the human body

Users who post content with any of the above attributes will face immediately suspension or ban with no explanation.

Expected Behaviour

The following behaviours are expected of all visitors, registered users, moderators and administrators of Nudie.Social:

Be Respectful

Value each other’s ideas, styles and viewpoints. We may not always agree, but disagreement is no excuse for poor manners. Be open to different possibilities and to being wrong. Be kind in all interactions and communications, especially when debating the merits of different options. Be aware of your impact and how intense interactions may be affecting people. Be constructive and positive. Take responsibility for your impact and your mistakes – if someone says they have been harmed through your words or actions, listen carefully, apologise sincerely, and correct the behaviour going forward.

Respect the words and actions of the admins and moderators on Nudie.Social. Follow the instructions of the admins and moderators in a timely fashion.

Be Inclusive

Seek diverse perspectives. Diversity of views and of people on teams powers innovation, even if it is not always comfortable. Encourage all voices. Help new perspectives be heard and listen actively. If you find yourself dominating a discussion, it is especially important to step back and encourage other voices to join in. Be aware of how much time is taken up by dominant members of the group. Provide alternative ways to contribute or participate when possible.

Understand Different Perspectives

Our goal should not be to “win” every disagreement or argument. Strive to be an example for inclusive thinking. Step back and chill, when you see a flame war is about to start.

Appreciate and Accommodate Our Similarities and Differences

Nudie.Social users come from many cultures and backgrounds. Cultural differences can encompass everything from official religious observances to personal habits. Be respectful of people with different cultural practices, attitudes and beliefs. Work to eliminate your own biases, prejudices and discriminatory practices. Think of others’ needs from their point of view. Use preferred titles (including pronouns) and the appropriate tone of voice. Respect people’s right to privacy and confidentiality. Be open to learning from and educating others as well as educating yourself; it is unrealistic to expect the registered users of Nudie.Social to know the cultural practices of every ethnic and cultural group, but everyone needs to recognise one’s native culture is only part of positive interactions.

Behaviour That Will Not Be Tolerated

The following behaviours are considered to be unacceptable under these guidelines.

Divisive, uncivilised, extremist, hateful language or opinions

Expression of support, sympathy or tolerance of the following will not be tolerated:

  • Cruelty, including animal cruelty

  • Nazism
  • Racism
  • Religious intolerance
  • Sexism
  • Terrorism
  • White supremacy or any form of racial supremacy

Offenders will face immediately suspension or ban with no explanation.

Violence and Threats of Violence

Violence and threats of violence are not acceptable. This includes incitement of violence toward any individual, including encouraging a person to commit self-harm. This also includes posting or threatening to post other people’s personally identifying information (“doxxing”) online.

Personal Attacks

Conflicts will inevitably arise, but frustration should never turn into a personal attack. It is not OK to insult, demean or belittle others. Attacking someone for their opinions, beliefs and ideas is not acceptable.

Derogatory Language

Hurtful or harmful language related to:

  • Background

is not acceptable. This includes deliberately referring to someone by a gender that they do not identify with, and/or questioning the legitimacy of an individual’s gender identity. If you’re unsure if a word is derogatory, don’t use it. This also includes repeated subtle and/or indirect discrimination; when asked to stop, stop the behaviour in question.

Unwelcome Sexual Attention

Unwelcome sexual attention is not acceptable. This includes sexualised comments, jokes or imagery. This also includes intimidating another person. Simulated physical contact (such as emojis like “kiss”) without affirmative consent is not acceptable. This includes sharing or distribution of sexualised images or text. Nude is not lewd.

Influencing Unacceptable Behaviour

We will treat influencing or leading such activities the same way we treat the activities themselves, and thus the same consequences apply.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behaviour

Bad behaviour from any users of Nudie.Social, including those with admin or moderation authority, will not be tolerated. All users on Nudie.Social are expected to be vigilant, call out unacceptable behaviours, and report them to the admins or moderators as soon as possible.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately. Violation of these guidelines can result in: Written warning, account suspension of up to 30 days, or account deletion.

In addition, any users who abuse the reporting process will be considered to be in violation of these guidelines and subject to the same consequences. False reporting, especially to retaliate or exclude, will not be accepted or tolerated.

Reporting

If you believe you’re experiencing unacceptable behaviour that will not be tolerated as outlined above, please alert one or more admins and/or moderators with a direct message:

If you feel you have been unfairly accused of violating these guidelines, please follow the same reporting process.

Ask questions

Everyone is encouraged to ask questions about these guidelines. Feel free to discuss any aspect of these guidelines either on the public timeline, or via direct messages to the admins and moderators.
