Terms Of Services

Meaboo is an online community in which participants ask and answer questions on a wide range of topics, from the serious to the delightfully trivial. These terms of services are here to help you do your part in making the community a safe and enriching place. We expect each member to conduct themselves with integrity, decency, and respect, and your use of Meaboo is subject to the Meaboo Terms of Services.

Violating the Community Guidelines may result in the termination of your Meaboo account without warning.

For safety reasons, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to ask or answer questions on Meaboo.

The community depends on each member to help keep Meaboo a safe, fun, and positive place for everyone. Anyone can report abuse, but members who earn good reputations can help us detect and remove abuse more quickly. Share what you know.

Be courteous.
Meaboo is a diverse community of people with diverse opinions. It is up to each of us to be polite and treat each other with respect.

Be a good citizen.
If you see great content, give it a star or thumbs-up. If you see abuse, report it. Before you write anything, ask yourself if your contribution increases the strength and virtue of the community. You make a difference in shaping Meaboo.

We encourage members to use online resources in answering questions. Just be sure to cite your sources and give credit where it is due.

Ask clearly.
Keep your questions succinct and descriptive, and check your spelling and grammar. It helps people find your questions, and you'll also get better answers.

Categorize correctly.
Categorize your question in the appropriate category. You will receive better and more relevant answers.

Your use of Meaboo is subject to the Meaboo Terms of Services.
Members who have violated the Community Guidelines are at risk for review and possible termination of their Meaboo accounts.
Venting, ranting or using hate speech
Meaboo isn't a soapbox to vent personal frustrations or rant about issues. We are a community of people with diverse beliefs, opinions, and backgrounds, so please be respectful and keep hateful and incendiary comments off Meaboo.

Chatting or otherwise violating the question-and-answer format.
Meaboo is a community of questions and answers, not a chat room. If a post is neither a question nor an answer, it doesn't belong here.

Being mean or obscene
Because kids as young as 13 may participate in Meaboo, sexually explicit and vulgar language and images are not welcome on the site. Also not welcome are belligerence, insults, slurs and generally objectionable speech. If you wouldn't say it in public, don't post it on Meaboo.

Exploiting the community
Meaboo is a place to gain knowledge, not customers, page views, or dates. If you have years of experience in something, have a special hobby, own your own business, or if you are a knowledge partner, it's OK to accompany a good, on-topic answer with a link to your website, blog, or email to offer more information. However, it is not OK to post links that are unrelated to the topic or are clearly meant only to solicit others for personal and financial gain. Also prohibited are solicitations like "Will you add me as a contact?" or propositioning people.

Cheating
Our points system is meant to reward the community members for sharing questions and answers, so creating multiple accounts or posting content for the sole purpose of gaining points or soliciting others for points is not permitted. Posting filler answers to a question in an effort to be first to answer, or copying and pasting other members' answers, are also forms of cheating.

Violating the law
Members of Meaboo are not above the law, so don't post anything that violates the laws of your country, state, province, or city. Don't try to trick people into sharing their personal information, steal anything (like copyright or trademark material), or break into places you shouldn't be. Don't threaten, harass, impersonate, or hurt others, and don't invade other people's privacy.

Behaving maliciously
Don't post links to sites that contain viruses or malicious programs or that interfere with the operation of Meaboo.

Misusing Answers
Don't create multiple accounts to troll or otherwise violate these Terms of Service. Don't post things that are incomprehensible or in the wrong language, and don't post the same question over and over again. The community depends on you to report abuse and rate questions and answers, so using product features such as report abuse and ratings to target others is not allowed.

Doing harm
Be responsible and don’t misrepresent yourself, claim false credentials or expertise or give advice in a way that might cause someone harm. Don’t incite or advocate violence or harmful practices.
