Content/Strike System

To ensure that decisions are made as democratically as possible, we developed a Jury System based on the Santa Clara Principles to review appeals. The jury consists of 12 unique, active users whose objective is to vote on appeals. If 75% or more agree with the appeal, the administrative action is overturned. For more information about the jury system, read our blog.


The current content moderation system functions as follows:

STRIKE OFFENSE

Users will receive a strike for certain violations of the Content Policy. Users will be notified about the strike, which term was violated, and which piece of content was in violation. All strikes can be appealed to a Minds Jury. Individual strikes will expire after 90 days.

The following violations will result in a strike:

Untagged NSFW Post (three strikes required for each individual NSFW category)

Strike 1 = Warning

Strike 2 = 2nd Warning

Strike 3 = Full channel marked with NSFW category

Harassment and Spam

Strike 1 = Warning

Strike 2 = 2nd Warning

Strike 3 = Ban

Spam may result in an immediate ban if determined to be malicious or by use of a bot.


IMMEDIATE BAN OFFENSE

Users will be immediately banned for certain violations of the Content Policy. Users will be notified about the ban and which term was violated, but they will not be able to see the content that was in violation as it will have to be removed from Minds. Appeals on immediate bans will be reviewed by the Minds admins and not a jury due to the nature of the content.

Illegal (terrorism, paedophilia, extortion, fraud, revenge porn, sex trafficking)

Personal and confidential information (doxxing)

Malware

Token manipulation

Impersonation

Incites a true threat of violence


BOOST POLICY
