Community

We aim to create a safe community for everyone on Scriblyz. Sharing opinions on stories and the quality or style of writing is ok.
The following post are not allowed and can result in termination of your account:

  • Bashes a user purely for personal reasons.
  • Reveals any personally identifying information about other people, including private messages, photographs/videos.
    Due to the fictional nature of stories and the chances of real names being used coincidentally, we are unable to remove a work for having the same or similar name to a real person. Only if there is additional identifying information, such as the city you reside or your work/school, is there a violation of our content guidelines.
  • Actively promotes violence or hatred. The promotion of hatred on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, or sexual orientation, or content that is intended to bully, threaten, or harass others, is also strictly prohibited.
    General expressions of opinions are allowed, but they cannot be violent in nature or encourage others to attack Scriblyz community users.



Self-Harm

Keep in mind that reading about self-harm, eating disorder, addiction and suicide can be upsetting or triggering.
That’s why we want to remind you that:

  • Content that encourages or gives instruction on self-harm will be removed.
  • Content that contains lots of description might be rated Mature, and stories that glorify or do not “tell a story” might be removed.
    “Telling a story” means the work must have a plot unrelated to the self-harm scene/s, or must show a progression or growth in its characters.
  • We want to encourage healthy discussions about these issues, so content about recovery, survival or that portray the negative consequences of self-harm are acceptable on Scriblyz.



Spam

Any content that advertises products or services unrelated to, or not sanctioned by Scriblyz is not permitted and will be removed.
