7 cups Community Protocol for Members and Guests

When accessing the site as a Member/Guest, you are agreeing that you will:

1. Remain professional, kind, and respectful towards one another.

     Even if you do not get along with an individual listener, member, or guest it is up to you to act appropriately, step away and not engage. It is up to you to put yourself in situations where you can act in this manner.

2. Prevent hurtful rumor/gossip spreading.

     Rumor: a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth.
     Gossip:  idle talk especially about the personal or private affairs of others

3. Aim to grow and learn as a person.

4. Show respect and kindness to Group Moderators.

     Group Mods are volunteers who strive to foster a healthy chat room environment. Please remember this.

5. Refrain from sharing personal contact information including, but not limited to, social media accounts, home addresses, phone numbers, messaging apps/sites, or any other medium of contact off-site.  

6. Maintain a confidential atmosphere.

     All conversations between you and listeners are confidential. Do not share any chat details with any other listeners or members. Additionally, do not write or blog about any issues you are supporting people on.

7. Engage in healthy problem solving.

     This means problem solving with the goal to continue to make the community better. Engage in healthy debates and conversations which lend themselves to problem solving and working together.

8. Use proper conflict resolution skills with every person on the site.

     Proper conflict resolution means dealing with conflict in a supportive manner that benefits both you and the other person involved.

9. Respect boundaries of other community members.

     This includes stalking and harassment.

10. Choose not to engage in sexting or flirting.

     We have a zero tolerance policy for these behaviors. Even if it is consensual, it is not allowed on 7 Cups.

11. Never create second accounts on the site.

     Each human in the world is only allowed one listener and one member account. There are no exceptions.

12. Not engage in hateful behaviors of any kind.

     Showing hate towards any gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, racial or cultural background or imposing your view point on any of these items on another user is forbidden.

13. Not be suicidal, homicidal, or abusing anyone.
