Moderation Policy

At the heart of wndr is the belief that social media should be a fun, safe environment for people to express themselves. We believe in treating people online just as you want to be treated in real life. People should be free to communicate and interact online in a trusted and safe environment that promotes life, growth, and positivity, rather than negativity and vanity. Just like in real life.

Our Moderation Policy is led by this core belief and, to ensure we are leading by example, our moderating is done primarily by humans. Algorithms will only be used for moderation decisions which we have classified as suitable for this type of action. This means a real person will be involved in all the key stages of the process to make sure your issues are dealt with quickly and effectively, and keep you safe and happy on wndr.

1. Content and/or Behaviour

We’re all about freedom of speech but you need to know there are some things the wndr team will not tolerate –

  • Sexually explicit material
  • Racism
  • Extreme political views and rhetoric
  • Extreme religious views
  • Homophobia, transphobia (dislike of, or prejudice against, transsexual or transgender people)
  • Self-harm or suicide
  • Incitement of violence or violent acts
  • Animal cruelty
  • Child abuse, cruelty or exploitation
  • Promotion of illegal activities
  • Photos or videos of violent actions
  • Advertising or promotion of content, goods or services outside of the wndr ecosystem
  • No abusive or inappropriate language when creating a post or replying to someone’s post -by inappropriate language we mean any sexist, racist, stereotypical or culturally insensitive language.
  • Taking Screenshots of images without permission
  • Pages that identify and shame private individuals
  • Images that have been altered to degrade private individuals
  • Photos or videos of physical bullying posted to shame the victim
  • Sharing personal information to blackmail or harass people
  • Repeatedly targeting other people with unwanted friend requests or messages
  • Posting any photos of a pornographic, exhibitionist, or indecent nature
  • Any use of the wndr app in an illegal, dishonest, malicious and/or discriminatory manner
  • Discrimination against disability or disease (we consider a disability to be an impairment of any kind, mental or physical, that makes it harder to take part in certain activities or interact with the world around you)

We know things can get said as a joke but remember, they may not be even remotely funny to other people. In fact, they can be insulting, upsetting and seriously emotionally damaging. ‘Think before you speak’ is a good motto here and put yourself in other people’s shoes. And if you use inappropriate language with serious intent to upset someone this will be dealt with accordingly.

** This list is not exhaustive and can be added to or amended at any time**

Here is a list of things that we do not consider freedom of speech –

  • Classified info
  • Libel
  • Obscenity– we consider this to be extremely offensive language, behaviour or images that offend someone’s morality.
  • Pornography
  • Trade secrets
  • Incitement – the provocation of any unlawful activity
  • Fighting words
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Copyright violation
  • Slander
  • Sedition

Any posts of this nature constitute a breach of our terms and any wndr member found to be in breach will be liable (without prejudice) to deletion of the account from which they originated as well as a ban of their individual identity, in order to prevent re-joining the community by the same person. Please be aware that any behaviour deemed criminal may be reported to the authorities.

2. Identity Fraud
