We want everyone to feel welcome on Off The Limb, and we have created these Guidelines to define the values of the community we want to build. On Off The Limb, you’re connected not by a shared preference, but a shared connection to a place — your neighborhood. Let’s build a strong one together.
You’re speaking to people in your actual area. Strong communities are built on strong relationships.
We do not tolerate racism, hateful language, or discrimination of any kind.
We have policies and dedicated spaces for important non-local topics, such as national politics.
We have created designated spaces for neighbors and local businesses to sell products and services.
Off The Limb is built on trust — we want everyone to know they’re communicating with their real neighbor, and therefore require you to use your true identity.
We prohibit any activity that could hurt someone, from physical harm to scams.
You, our people who make up Off The Limb, play a key role in neighborhood moderation by reporting content or people that violate these Guidelines. Please remember that disagreeing with a post is not a reason to report it. This slows down our ability to remove content that is truly abusive and to create a platform where everyone feels welcome
