Community Guidelines

Last updated: June 16, 2021

 

Oi Mascoteers! We created Mascot to be a friendly community for everyone to hang out, explore different personas, and make new friends. It’s important to us that everyone can have a fun experience, which is why we have the community guidelines in place. We are continuously improving Mascot with new safety features to help protect yourself, and you’re encouraged to report others who are breaking the rules. If people are found to be breaking the community guidelines, we may take action by removing content and banning accounts. We hope that these efforts can deliver a safer and better experience for you in Mascot. Have fun!
