We consider how crucial it is that individuals be able to share their compelling stories in our community, and we take responsibility for ensuring a peaceful, abuse-free atmosphere as we outline the dos and don'ts on Ndi-Igbo Worldwide.


 


Our stance on speaking out


Our goal for community guidelines is simply to give Ndi-Igbo a voice and a platform to speak freely. We want them to open up freely about pressing issues, even if some may have objections or disagree. We might also publish content that violates our guidelines if it's newsworthy, so long as public appeals outweigh detrimental hazards. We do this only when the scales balance general requests and harmful risks.


 


Expression is vital, and we give an unwavering commitment, despite the abuses that constantly come from the Internet. As a result, we may limit expression for practical reasons, such as:


Authenticity


We see to it that the contents seen on Ndi-Igbo Worldwide are authentic. with hopes that this will create a better environment for sharing so that people don't get caught up in misrepresenting themselves or what they do while using Ndi-Igboworldwide.


 


Safety


We pledge to ensure the safety of Ndi-Igbo worldwide. Consequently, content that threatens users is considered private. We assure the privacy and security of your information. Privacy enables users to be themselves and determine when and how much information to reveal on the site.


Dignity


We understand that all individuals ought to be treated with decency and dignity. We expect people to treat others with respect and to not disturb or demean them.






Violence and incitement


We try to protect against any offline harm that could be caused by Ndi-Igbo Worldwide content anywhere in the world. People frequently express disapproval by threatening others or subtly instigating violence. Languages that incite such violence are removed. We suspend accounts and remove content. 


Do not post:


Statements that could result in death (or other severe kinds of violence) or acknowledgement of earlier violent acts committed against people or places when the threat is any of the following:



  • Declarations of intent to engage in highly violent behaviour. This includes content that uses a sign to denote the intended victim or shows an instrument of violence.

  • Calls for extreme violence, including contents in which the target is not named but represented by a symbol and contains images of weapons or other signs of violence.

  • Statements admitting to perpetrating acts of severe violence unless made in the context of repentance, self-defence, or when carried out by members of the military, law enforcement, or state security.

  • Content that requests, acknowledges, or offers to kill others for pay (such as hiring assassins through the employment of killers, mercenaries, or assassins) or promotes using an assassin as a hitman, mercenary, or assassin against a target.

  • Media that depict or replicate possible outcomes (severe injury or death) as part of the lesson.

threatening people and groups


We prohibit people or organizations with known involvement in violent missions from having a place on Ndi-Igbo Worldwide. This is to enable us to regulate and prevent actual harm. We assess these groups based on their online and offline actions—most significantly, their associations with violence. Additionally, we forbid content that applauds, essentially supports, or depicts violent events, such as terrorist attacks, hate crimes, and multi-victim violence, which Ndi-Igbo Worldwide considers violent events. We acknowledge that users may share information about dangerous organizations and people to expose, criticize, or reasonably discuss them. We draft our policies to allow for these kinds of discussions. However, we require that users clearly state their objectives because they risk being ignored if they are not clear.


 


Facilitating criminal activity and harm coordination


To curb and control offline misconduct, we disallow people from inciting or participating in criminal activities directed towards other people and their properties. People can discuss and support the legality of criminal acts and also bring to light any illegal activities witnessed by them, given that they would not endorse or encourage such activities.
