Hikingbook Community Guidelines

Welcome to Hikingbook Community! Our aim is to create an inspiring, supportive, and respectful environment where outdoor lovers can share their experiences, follow others, and interact with enthusiasm and positivity. As you join us on this journey, please be mindful of the following community guidelines:

  1. Respect Each Other

    Each individual is unique and has a different approach to outdoor activities. Respect every person's pace, chosen activities, and choices. Negative comments or bullying will not be tolerated.

  2. Help Each Other

    When sharing your outdoor records or experiences, ensure they are your own and are truthful, so that they can bring most value to other community members. Do not share false or misleading information.

  3. Be Positive and Constructive

    When commenting on other's posts, be supportive and encouraging, or provide well-intended advice. Avoid any form of negativity or criticism that is not constructive.

  4. No Spamming or Advertising

    This community is about sharing outdoor experiences, not a marketplace. Please refrain from posting promotional content or spamming other users.

  5. Follow Privacy Guidelines

    Respect the privacy of other members. Do not share personal information about others without their explicit consent, or infringe upon their privacy in any way.

  6. Respect Nature

    Promote and engage in responsible outdoor activities. Do not promote practices that may harm the environment or wildlife.

  7. Comply with Local Laws and Safety Regulations

    Always respect the rules and regulations of the area you are in. Share safe and legal outdoor experiences only. Encouraging or engaging in illegal activities or unsafe practices is strictly prohibited.

  8. No Offensive Content

    Inappropriate, explicit, violent, or discriminatory content is strictly prohibited. Everyone can contribute to a healthy and friendly environment for all.

  9. Report, Don't Retaliate

    If you encounter any content or behavior that violates these guidelines, please report it to us rather than responding negatively or engage in name-calling actions. We're here to help maintain the health and positivity of this community.

Violations of these community guidelines may lead to a warning, suspension, or permanent ban from the community, depending on the severity and frequency of the violations.

We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to creating a wonderful and supportive outdoor-loving community together.
