📙┃Content Policy

Last updated August 04, 2022

Thinkin is a place where people can discuss their thoughts and ideas and exchange alphas. Thinkin has a number of communities where you may publish, comment, vote, discuss, learn, discuss, support, and connect with others who share your interests.

The point is that no community should be used as a weapon, even though it's not for you (and you may find some unrelatable or even insulting). Instead than attempting to decrease others' sense of belonging, communities should work to foster it in their own. Everyone on Thinkin has a right to privacy and safety, so please be considerate of the privacy and safety of others.

Thinkin's communities are defined by its members. We believe that Thinkin encourages the free exchange of ideas and information, as well as healthy discussion and the development of new relationships between individuals and organizations. A violation of our service's core values would be censoring this content, which is why we refuse to do so.

Unless we halt the abuse that undermines these objectives, this service and the freedom of speech it encourages are in jeopardy. To host material on Thinkin, there are a number of constraints. As a result, we've drawn lines that are both legally sound and helpful to the service as a whole as a whole.

Community members are encouraged to report information that does not meet Thinkin's community standards. Using Thinkin's email address, you may report postings that you believe to be in conflict with the community's standards.

Community guidelines

In order to make the open web a friendly place for creators, our community norms are critical. Please abide by the terms of this agreement. Please revisit this page often as we make changes to our policies. Please be aware that we may make exceptions to the policies listed below if there are compelling artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific reasons to do so, or if doing so would harm the general public in some other way.

Adult content

Pornography has no place on Thinkin. We either restrict the availability of mature and explicit content or delete it, including:

  • Fetish pictures

  • Explicit sexual language

  • Images depicting nudity with graphic sexual content that appear to have a pornographic motive due to the postures, camera angles, or accessories

We make an effort to distinguish between adult content and pornography. For example, given the non-pornographic context, you can store information regarding sexual health, breastfeeding, mastectomies, art, education, and well-being with adult nudity. However, we may restrict its dissemination to prevent inadvertent exposure.


Human or animal exploitation has no place in Thinkin. We'll delete or restrict access to content and accounts that engage in activities like sexual, physical, or financial exploitation that put people or animals in danger. That contains:

  • Minors who are sexualized or sexually exploited may be subjected to grooming, sexual comments, or improper pictures. In the event that we discover it, we will notify the proper authorities, including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

  • Photos collected or released without consent that are of a private or sexual nature are known as non-consensual images. Both up-skirt and revenge porn are included in this.

  • Escort services and sex cams are examples of adult sexual services that might be used for trafficking, sexual exploitation, or both.

  • Trafficking in persons, slavery, servitude, and forced or required work.

  • Other unlawful economic exploitation, such as the sale of organs or the manufacture of goods using human remains or body parts.

  • The trade in wild animals or threatened or protected species. Please see our partner, the World Wildlife Fund, for a complete list of wildlife items that are not allowed.
