Our code of conduct and your pledge to be an upstanding member of the Now&Me community.
Now&Me is an emotional support network
Now&Me is an online emotional and social support network to talk about your feelings and emotions and discuss your mental health-related issues. We aim to foster genuine and meaningful connections among members of the Now&Me community. Please refrain from diagnosing other members with mental health disorders.
Please ensure that your posts are relevant to the theme of the platform. Single-word posts and short sentences provide limited context and are hard to comprehend. Please make sure your posts are well thought out and understandable. It will help the Now&Me community understand your thoughts and support you.
We put no restrictions on what you share. However, we have some community guidelines that must be taken into consideration. If you don't, you may find your thoughts removed and/or your account disabled. Help us to keep Now&Me awesome!
Be mindful, kind and supportive
When discussing triggering issues/events, select the 'Trigger Warning' checkbox
It's okay to share your struggles with the community, but we need to make sure this is done safely -keeping in mind the impact it could have on the rest of the community. A good way to know if you should add a Trigger Warning is to ask yourself, 'If I was reading this, would it make me feel disturbed or re-think potentially disturbing events that I would not want to revisit?' A trigger is also anything that has to do with the act of considering Self-Harm, attempting Self Harm, actually self-harming or discussing a Past Attempt.
Please ensure that your content does not hurt the sentiment(s) of a particular religious, political or ethnic group. The content should also not promote violence. Usernames or Profile pictures that are hateful or harmful will not be allowed.
Being empathetic means stepping into the other person's shoes. It is essential as it helps you understand what others are feeling so you can appropriately respond to the situation. We highly value empathy at Now&Me. Be sensitive when responding; it takes a lot of courage to share how you feel.
Be respectful of boundaries
Be self-aware. Respect the space & boundaries of other people and understand where and how you are crossing the line.
Don't be creepy
You know them. Don't be them. If you are them, your account will be deleted.

Blatant requests for dating and hookups will be removed. Now&Me also has a zero-tolerance policy for any sexual/flirtatious talks. The only exception here is sexual health.

No bullying and harassment
Now&Me is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others. So, make an effort to be polite and respectful in your interactions with other users.
Generally, users are responsible for their interactions with other users on Now&Me.

This includes verbally abusive content or any content directed at specific Now&Me users or repeated unwanted contact with a user.
Everyone should be treated with respect. Participate on the platform while acknowledging that everyone deserves respect and comfort — each of us has the right to enjoy our experience without fear of harassment, discrimination, or condescension, whether blatant or via micro-aggressions. All forms of communication should not demean others, especially not sexually or condescendingly. Now&Me has a zero-tolerance policy for any sexual/flirtatious talks. Please be well aware of when not to cross the line. Any sexual harassment will immediately be blocked, can lead to revokement of access to the platform and, in certain scenarios, be reported legally.

An exception may be made for posts of such content to educate others about this subject matter to combat such behaviour and conduct (e.g. charities or other non-profit organizations building awareness or fundraising). Similarly, in some cases, words or terms that might otherwise violate our standards are used self-referentially or in an empowering way. We allow the content when this is the case, but we expect you to indicate your intent, which helps us better understand why you shared it. Again, however, please use sound judgment and ensure your intent is clear in such posts.
