Community Guidelines

Introduction

In order to create a safe social media platform, guidelines are very important to make every user feel safe and protected on Usercord. To achieve that level of safety, we've created some policies that we expect every user to follow. Violation of these policies can affect your account standing. As a baseline, we expect that all profile pictures, banners, and public social posts would be suitable for ages 13 and up.
