A message from the Moderating Team. - December 8th 2018, 07:59 PM

Hi all,

The Moderating Team wants to thank you for your patience and your activity around the site. Moderators do not always catch things, so it is helpful when you report anything that may need attention.

A few months ago, Rob posted this thread with some changes to TeenHelp's Terms of Service (Code of Conduct and Privacy Policy), and suggested for users to completely reread these documents. Under the Advertising Policy,

TeenHelp has a responsibility to ensure that every link posted on TeenHelp is safe. Any links posted anywhere on TeenHelp should follow the guidelines posted below:
  • All sites posted must be for a clear purpose, e.g. as part of a discussion or to assist a user seeking help. Posts should not be made solely in order to promote another site.
  • No sites that perform the same function as TeenHelp but without added value. These includes most websites with bulletin board software. Sites listed on the Resources page are excluded from this rule; these sites have been carefully selected because we believe they are of particularly high quality and reliability.
  • No sites that violate any part of these Terms of Service.
  • No sites that promote or endorse illegal or dangerous behaviour.
  • Sites that are large and well-known are not considered to contravene the Advertising Policy. Which sites are well-known is decided by the Project Coordinators.
  • Users may post a single link to a personal website (e.g. a blog) within their user profile or within their signature; this should not be posted repeatedly over TeenHelp, however.
Any sites not covered by the Advertising Policy should be checked with a Project Coordinator prior to being posted on TeenHelp. Email contact [at] teenhelp.org for further information.

If someone posts a link that is on topic with the thread or the post itself and follows all of the rules above, it is allowed to be posted. We cannot remove links that follow the rules, even if it looks like a user is only here to spam.

This also means that users who are likely here to spam must be moderated like any other user. We are working on what we can, when we can, so please keep this in mind when making a report.

Thank you,
the Moderating Team.

Thank you for the update, Cassie. I always check to see if it has any key words in the hyperlink, such as "gamble" or "casino" etc before deciding whether or not to report it.
