On The Vise accounts are intended for members to share original photos that they themselves have created.
The following Community Guidelines are here to help you understand what it means to be a member of On The Vise. Don't forget that your use of On The Vise is subject to these Guidelines and our Terms of Service.
What to do
- Do play nice.
We're a global community of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable and who may not think what you think, believe what you believe or see what you see. So, be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members.
- Do upload content that you've created.
Respect the copyright of others. This means don't steal photos or videos that other people have shared and pass them off as your own. (That's what favorites are for.)
- Do link back to On The Vise when you post your On The Vise content elsewhere.
On The Vise makes it possible to post content hosted on On The Vise to other web sites. However, pages on other web sites that display content hosted on On The Vise.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on On The Vise. This provides a way to get more information about the content and the photographer.
- Do enjoy On The Vise!
See the world through others' eyes, participate, find your muse, and expand your horizons!
What not to do
Here's the deal: We like to give second chances. However, stepping across any of the lines listed below may result in account deletion with or without warning.
- Don't upload anything that isn't yours.
This includes other people's photos, video, and/or stuff you've copied or collected from around the Internet. Accounts that consist primarily of such collections may be deleted at any time.
- Don't show nudity in your avatar.
Only content considered "safe" is appropriate for your avatar. If we find that you've uploaded an avatar that contains inappropriate content, we'll remove the avatar, mark your account as "restricted" and send you a warning. If we find you doing it again, we'll delete your account.
- Don't upload content that is illegal or prohibited.
If we find you doing that, your account will be deleted and we'll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities.
- Don't vent your frustrations, rant, or bore the brains out of other members.
On The Vise is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we'll send you a warning or delete your account.
- Don't be creepy.
You know the guy. Don't be that guy.
- Don't use your account to host web graphics, like logos and banners.
If we find you using your account to host graphic elements of web page designs, logos, icons, and other non-photographic elements on other web sites, we will warn you or delete your account.
Here are some other things to keep in mind:
If you see photos that you've created in another member's photostream, don't panic. This is probably just a misunderstanding and not malicious. A good first step is to contact them via Private Message and politely ask them to remove it. If that doesn't work, please contact On The Vise who will take it from there.
