I fell it is time to remind everybody
that... if you ever hear anything illegal going on on TG or on the TG Discord (or on Discord in general, or another such place connected to our community), such as for example an adult having a sexual conversation with someone who is a minor by USA law (is under 18). Please report this to the staff as soon as you can.
We promise to handle the issue professionally and discretely. Your safety is our responsibility. Everybody's safety and not just physical safety but also emotional safety. Friends do not let friends suffer needlessly.
If you did not read the thread I linked above, I will reiterate: it is not unusual for predators to make you feel responsible for their misdeeds
. Please trust us that we will act professionally and discretely with the information you provide and that we will get our facts straight before we act.
That being said, please keep in mind that different online services have different Terms of Service. Specifically, I would like to alert you to the Discord community guidelines: https://discordapp.com/guidelines
...which are a cleaned up version of their Terms of Service that are easy to read and easy to follow.
Discord Rules Wrote:The following is completely unacceptable and will result in immediate content removal and account deletion:
- Sharing content that is directly threatening someone's physical or financial state. Do not threaten to harm another person or someone related to another person in any capacity. Do not tell other people you will hurt or kill them. Do not dox people. Do not share or threaten to share personal information of another user - this includes but is not limited to home address, phone number, email, social security number, and photos. Respect other people's desire for privacy.
- Doing anything illegal on Discord. This is directly from our Terms of Service. We will take immediate action if you: violate any applicable laws or regulations, or promote or encourage any illegal activity including, but not limited to, hacking, cracking or distribution of pirated software, or cheats or hacks for our or another company or person's Service.
- Sharing content related to minors that is sexually suggestive or violent. Do not share or post links to images that depict minors or underage individuals engaged in violent, sexually suggestive, pornographic, shameful, or otherwise inappropriate situations.
- Sharing or linking to content with intent to shame or degrade another individual. Do not share sexually explicit content of other people without their consent. Do not share or promote sharing of revenge porn.
There terms apply in tandem with TG rules for the TG Discord community. And they also apply to the rest of Discord including Direct Messages and other Discord servers. Furthermore doing things which are illegal in the USA is dangerous for yourself as well as the people around you.
Keep in mind that all of this applies regardless of whether or not we agree with it and can have serious consequences! A ban following the breaking of these rules might be the least of your problems.
That being said, please come clean with TG staff at least, together we'll work something out. No matter our personal qualms, your history, or what you have done, if you're a TG member, we'll do what we can to protect you.
P.S.: We've updated the rules with a new rule #15, which is there to protect you as much as it is to protect the TG community from possible legal repercussions of the actions of our members.
