This Site is Rated "L"
On Mousesquad.org, every registered user is a trusted member of the global Mouse Network. This honor comes with responsibility. Our site is rated "L" for Leadership: this means that, first and foremost, you alone are responsible for your participation on the site. What you post is a reflection on you, your squad, your site, and the global Mouse Network.
As with any network, you should think seriously before posting, commenting, or adding to the site in any way. Ask yourself these simple questions:
- Is what I'm about to post appropriate for ALL audiences?
- Is it a positive reflection on me and my squad?
- Does it fit the Mouse Squad standard: to advance the learning and growth of all members?
- Is it responsible and respectful?
If your answer is "No" to any of these questions, then we encourage you to take it offline. Instead, write your thoughts and feelings down as a personal journal entry, and look back on it in a year to determine whether it was a good idea.
Remember, every public contribution you make to mousesquad.org is subject to the scrutiny of your Mouse Squad peers (all of them). These peers (thousands) are all:
- extremely smart
- intolerant of negativity
- on a mission to better themselves, their sites, and their communities.
In the event that you post content that Mouse HQ or your coordinator decides is inappropriate for mousesquad.org, Mouse will:
- suspend the post
- send an email notification to you and your Coordinator that your account has been flagged for improper use
Should your account come to attention more than once for breaking the rules above, it will be deleted from the site. Your Coordinator will then take action to review whether your status as a Mouse Squad Member should be revoked.
We trust the members of our network to make good judgements about the content they post online, but it's important that we set some standards for how everyone behaves on mousesquad.org. If you come across a post/submission/comment that you feel violates the agreements above, feel free to remind your fellow squad members about the Code of Conduct, or notify firstname.lastname@example.org.
