Community Guidelines

1. Introduction

The Poket Univ Community is a space created to provide helpful information and sound exchanges for all college students. To maintain and foster this space, we have established the Community Guidelines, and we ask all users to follow these guidelines.

This document sets out the necessary rules for using our community. The Poket Univ Team is committed to the safety and integrity of this community and will handle issues and wrongdoings according to the Community Guidelines. Overstepping these boundaries may result in deleted posts/comments, suspension of use, and even withdrawal of use.

2. Our Operation

With dedicated personnel, we work hard to maintain a safe and sound environment for our users. Any content that does not abide by the guidelines can be deleted. Users can be suspended or banned when violating our rules. All judgements for such decisions will go through careful consideration and will be judged according to the guidelines. Reported content will also go through the same judgement process in order to maintain legitimacy and to prevent unfair suspension. Specific details on how we deal with reports are explained below.
