At WeFish, we have wanted to get together the best fishing community in the world, joined by their commitment to responsible fishing and respect for species and the environment.
To further join anglers from all corners of the planet, we have created Fishing Groups, so that we can all share our interests, knowledge, information, experiences and techniques for each type of fishing and for each species. Learn and improve your fishing skills with the help of thousands of anglers, both beginners and experts, lovers of fresh water or anglers in whose veins salt water runs.
It is important, for the proper functioning of these groups, to take into account a series of values of respect and safety so that we can fully enjoy our greatest hobby. From the development team of this project, we recognize the importance of WeFish being a safe place, where people feel they can communicate, and we take our role very seriously when it comes to avoiding any type of abuse in our service. That is why we have developed a set of Community Guidelines that describe what is and is not allowed in WeFish Talk Groups:
I. Violence and incitement
We strive to prevent real-life damage that may be related to the content displayed on WeFish. While we understand that people often express contempt or disagreement through threats or appeals to violence without serious intent, we eliminate language that encourages or makes serious acts of violence possible. In cases where we believe there is a real risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety, we remove content, disable accounts, and collaborate with law enforcement authorities. We also try to keep language and context in mind to distinguish casual assertions from content that constitutes a credible threat to public or private safety.
II. Questionable content
We limit the display of nudity or sexual activity. In addition, by default, we remove these types of images to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or minor content.
We believe that people express themselves freely and connect with each other more confidently when they don’t feel attacked for who they are. This is why we do not allow hate speech on WeFish, because it creates an intimidating and exclusive environment that, in some cases, can incite violence in real life.
We consider hate speech all content that directly attacks people for what we call “protected characteristics”: race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, religion, class, sexual orientation, sex, and serious illness. We consider attack those violent or dehumanizing expressions, statements of inferiority, expressions of contempt, rejection, insults, or requests for exclusion or segregation.
In short and as a very simple rule: all content, conversation, debate and information related to sport fishing is welcome, expressed in a correct and respectful way. We are among friends!
We strive to limit the spread of spam because we do not want to allow content that is intended to mislead or attempt to mislead users in order to increase views. This content creates a negative user experience and diminishes people’s ability to authentically participate in online communities. In addition, it may put the security, stability and use of our services at risk. We also try to prevent people from misusing our products, platforms, or features to artificially increase views or distribute content in bulk for commercial gain.
If you represent a brand, store or business related to the sector and want to advertise on the platform, better contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org and we will study ways to collaborate.
The consequences of violating any of these rules vary depending on the severity of the violation and the history of the person in the application. For example, we may notify someone if this is the first violation, but if you continue to violate our user manual, we may limit your ability to post on WeFish or disable your profile. We may also contact the relevant law enforcement authorities if we believe there is a real risk of injury or direct threats to public safety.
