A few rules to keep 9GAG safe and fun for everyone
9GAG is all about fun. It’s a place that gives people the power to make the world happier.
To keep the awesomeness of our community going, treat your fellow 9gaggers as you would like to be treated: with respect. We trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust. Here are the basic rules developed according to this principle. Please take them seriously and respect the spirit in which they were created.
9GAG is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. We work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
No violence, gory and harmful content
Don’t post or comment with violent, gory content or content that encourages others to do things that might cause them to get hurt or to commit specific acts of violence, especially kids. If posting graphic content in a news or documentary context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on in the content.
No hate speech and bullying
We don’t support content and comment that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status or sexual orientation, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics.
No spamming, manipulation and multiple account abuse
Everyone hates spam. Don’t post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content and comments in order to increase views. Creating multiple accounts with overlapping uses or in order to evade the temporary or permanent ban of a separate account is not allowed.
No deceptive content
Don’t spread wrong information. Deceptive content, comment and account may get removed depending on their severity.
No personal and confidential information
To protect the safety of private individuals, anything that reveals other people’s personally identifiable information (including personal social media accounts of non-public figures without the consent of the original party) is not allowed.
No illegal activities
Content depicting or advocating illegal activity will not be tolerated. Such acts may be reported to law enforcement and users committed these acts may be permanently banned from 9GAG.
You may not impersonate others (person, group or brand) on 9GAG in a manner that is intended to or does mislead, confuse, or deceive others.
No copyright and trademark infringement
Respect originality and creativity. Give credit where credit is due. We reserve the right to reclaim usernames on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark on those usernames. Accounts using business names and/or logos to mislead others may be permanently banned.
We have a variety of ways of enforcing our rules, including, but not limited to:
- Removal of content
- Temporary or permanent suspension of accounts
- Removal of privileges from, or adding restrictions to, accounts
