When you join 2SWIM, you are joining a community.
2SWIM is where you go to be your real digital self.
Please treat others as you want to be treated.
Before posting, consider who could potentially see it — if it is not something you would want your grandparents or future boss to see, don’t post it.
Please comply with the age restrictions of the country you’re in when it comes to signing up for an account. In North America, this means you must be a minimum of 13 years old to sign up. In Europe, it ranges. Please look it up before you sign up.
Users are expected to be active members of the community — this is measured through multiple actions (including posting, replies and general engagement). If an account is overly inactive, the account may be reclaimed by iissllaanndd without notice. Inactivity may be considered as not logging in for at least six months to not actively partaking in or commenting on posts.
While some policies may seem broad in places, know that in any situation, all information will be reviewed, and nuance will be considered as well. Decisions will be based on the spirit of the policy and action will be taken based on all factors.

Nudity or sexual content
Pornography nor sexually explicit content is allowed on 2SWIM, whether it’s you or another person. Content featuring people (of any gender) in minimal or revealing clothing may also be removed if they're intended to be sexually provocative, but don't show explicit content. Content containing nudity/other sexual content may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitously graphic.
Please note that we will promptly report any suspected child exploitation to law enforcement.
Violent, graphic or harmful content
Sensational or gratuitous content is not permitted. If showing violence or discussing harmful behavior for news/documentary purposes please provide enough information through tags/text overlay to give other users context about the post. Do not encourage others to engage in violence or potentially harmful activities.
There is a zero-tolerance policy for trolling or abuse on 2SWIM. We uphold and support all manner of free speech but it must be conducted in a way which welcomes dialogue not vicious or hateful argument. This means that any user who condones violence against a person or a group based on ethnicity, race or nationality, religion, gender, disability, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity will have their content removed immediately and/or their account suspended. This also applies to those whose main reason for creating the content is to incite hatred based on the above.
Harassment and bullying
Much like the hateful content conditions, the platform will not permit any abusive content to be posted. This includes (but is not limited to): abusive content, posting someone’s personal information that is not already available on their profile, posting hurtful/negative content in reply to/targeting another user, posting to purposefully embarrass/harm another user or sexual harassment. Any user caught engaging in this behavior may be banned from 2SWIM.
If you feel you are being harassed on the platform, please flag the content immediately and block the user, and then tell an adult about what happened.
Any type of threat made to another user on 2SWIM will not be allowed on the platform. This includes but is not limited to stalking, harassment, intimidation, predatory behavior or condoning others to commit an act of violence. Any user caught engaging in this behavior will be banned from 2SWIM.
Any account established to impersonate another person or brand will be removed immediately.
Posting, replying or engaging in any type of activity that sexualizes minors will end in termination of a user account permanently.
In cases where content contains child sexual abuse, we will report it to NCMEC (http://www.missingkids.com/home), who works with global law enforcement agencies.
If you believe that a child is in imminent danger, please contact your local law enforcement immediately.
Encouraging Terms of Service Violations
If you post any content that encourages other users to violate our Terms of Service or these Community Guidelines, the content will likely be removed and your account may be penalized or terminated.
Violation of any of the above terms will warrant different responses depending on the egregious nature of the user(s) behavior, ranging from a warning to termination/permanent ban.
If you are experiencing any issues with regards to the above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a detailed description of the violation.
