210teenlibrary Discord Server: Guidelines

We don't want to limit how you and other teens interact on the 210teenlibrary Discord server ("this server")—but we definitely want to make sure that the 210teenlibrary Discord server is a safe library space for all teens (ages 13-18). We ask that you do us a favor and keep the following guidelines in mind while on this server:

  1. By joining, using, participating, and remaining on this server, you confirm that you are currently a teen (ages 13-18).
  2. Remember to be kind, courteous, and respectful to all.
    • Please let a SAPL Staff member know if you feel uncomfortable with something that is taking place or has taken place on this server. You can always block or report anyone on this server.
    • Usernames/nicknames and messages sent anywhere on this server should only include appropriate, harmless, and nondisruptive content, links, or files.
    • Be nice. Don’t be a troll or a bully or engage in hate speech.
  3. Keep your personal information safe.
    • This is a safe space BUT avoid oversharing; never share things like your full name or address.
    • Remember what you put on the internet is there to stay, even if it is deleted.
    • Don’t post things online that you wouldn’t want anyone else to see.
  4. Post spam on the #spam channel.
    • #spam exists to provide a space for you to post appropriate messages that are random but do not meaningfully contribute to other conversations on this server.
  5. Self-promotion is totally okay.
    • Share your Twitch stream, YouTube channel, Instagram account, and more in #self-promo.
    • BUT you can’t advertise anything for sale, including commissions for artwork or other things you’ve made.
