Overview

  • Socrates offers the ability to express your thoughts creatively - encourage freedom of speech with a focus on building a community of honesty, sharing information and their point of view. We would like to remind our users that all the discussion and content on our platform should be created in a respectul and polite manner. Therefore:

    • Post meaningful discussion points

    • Keep it polite

    • Be respectful

  • Account Integrity & Authentic Identity

    • This policy aims to create a safe environment where people can trust and hold one another accountable. Authenticity is the cornerstone of our community. It helps create a community where people are accountable to each other, and to us, in meaningful ways. We want to allow for the range of diverse ways that identity is expressed across our global community, while also preventing impersonation and identity misrepresentation.

    • We would disable your account or even freeze your rewards and prizes if you:

      1. Create or use an account by scripted or bots or automatic tools, or any other inauthentic means.
      2. Coordinate as part of a network of accounts or other entities in order to violate or evade our Community Standards.
      3. Create or use an account that deliberately misrepresents their identity in order to mislead or deceive our company or others, or to evade enforcement or violate our other Community Standards.
      4. Creating a single account that represents or is used by more than one person.
      5. Maintaining multiple accounts as a single user.
