  • Racist, sexist, or otherwise offensive

If you notice a Metahawk member posting inappropriate content, flag the shot or report it by contacting us.

3. I won’t spam other Metahawk Members

Metahawk provides many features that allow users to interact with one-another, including messages. Please don’t use these tools indiscriminately to spam or send unsolicited messages to other members. If you’re caught spamming other Metahawk members, your account may be suspended or removed.

What do we consider spam?

  • Using likes, follows, and other disingenuous social gestures to draw attention to your account
  • Linking to your own work in comments on other members’ profiles
  • Asking for likes and/or follows in exchange for a Metahawk invitation
  • Leaving many comments that are short on substance to draw attention to your account

If you see a Metahawk member spamming others, report it by contacting us.

4. I will give due credit

If your work is inspired by other work on Metahawk, make sure to give credit. You can do this by mentioning the Metahawk member. Know that work that’s inspired by others may be interpreted as stolen.

If you’re the owner of work that has been posted on Metahawk without your consent, you can submit a DMCA takedown request by contacting us. For more info, please refer to our Terms of Service.

Please link back to Metahawk when posting Metahawk content elsewhere.

5. I will be constructive in my feedback

When providing criticism or feedback to other Metahawk members—be helpful, not mean.

Your account may be suspended or removed if you engage in activity that violates these guidelines.
