CoFoundersTown Guidelines

CoFoundersTown aims to connect individuals (& organizations) from various interests & domains and intends to foster “learning through sharing”. We, at CoFoundersTown, believe that you always have an opportunity to learn from any specific individual and also pass on your personal & professional experience to the ones who might need it.

With this vision, we set out to create a platform wherein we not only provide a platform & opportunity for individuals (& organizations) to connect but also invite experts from various business domains to contribute on our platform.

We recognize and understand how important it is for individuals to feel empowered in order to make them feel more comfortable so that they can contribute freely. For this purpose, we have made a set of guidelines of what is & what is not allowed on the CoFoundersTown platform. These guidelines apply to all the content that’s published on the CoFoundersTown platform across all countries.

Violations of these guidelines might result in the removal of the post that violated the guidelines or might also lead to the temporary/permanent suspension of the user account who violated the guidelines. The CoFoundersTown might choose to stop/limit the distribution/promotion of any particular post at the sole discretion of CoFoundersTown editorial team.

Safety

Hate Speech

Hateful text, images, symbols, or other content in your username, profile, or bio or any post is not allowed and appropriate measures would be taken against every such user account.

Content Guidelines

To make your content eligible for getting curated and getting distributed across the CoFoundersTown social media accounts and newsletters, user posts must meet CoFoundersTown rules as well as the following content requirements:

  • Complete your user profile so that it becomes easier for the readers to know who you are
  • Choose the right and relevant interests so that your content gets distributed to the right audience
  • Do not use content/images which raises the issue of copyright infringement. CoFoundersTown takes no responsibility and you are solely responsible for the consequences that arise from using copyrighted image/content
  • Try making your articles as much engaging and informative as you can. Articles with an engaging title and a longer word length have a better chance of getting curated and distributed. All included content must be relevant, substantial and informative. We strongly recommend you to go proof-read your content before publishing it
  • Use a proper structure in your posts to enhance the reading experience of the readers. For example, usage of sub-headings and choosing to italicize the sentences at relevant places would increase the chances of your content getting selected for curation/distribution
  • Avoid posting content whose aim is to advertise a product/organization/individual
  • The content which is created with the primary aim to drive traffic to an external website, business, or product is less likely to be curated/distributed
  • Content which includes include other calls to action (for example, asking for claps), requests for donations, and/or putting up content with an aim to capture information or solicit money would not be curated/distributed.

CoFoundersTown reserves the right to distribute, use and share all the content published on its platform across all social media platforms, newsletters, and for all the other branding/promotional purposes. These requirements, however, are the necessary requirements and might not still not be sufficient to get your content curated and distributed through CoFoundersTown.

If the rules/policies are violated

CoFoundersTown reserves the right to review posts/ user accounts at any time and remove posts/suspend accounts at the discretion of the Editorial team of CoFoundersTown if we believe that any of our policies is violated.
