Vouch allows users to contribute different kinds of content, including reviews, photos, private messages, and more. Be nice to each other, and be nice when talking about each other, even when you're telling your friends you wouldn't hire someone again. Just in case, we've put together some guidelines. Please also read the guidelines below for specific types of content that you might contribute to the site.
Inappropriate content: Colorful language and imagery is fine, but there's no need for threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, and other displays of bigotry.
Bullying and harassment: Professional negative reviews are fine, bullying and harassment are not. Keep your negative comments civil, do not share personal information to blackmail or harass people, do not repeatedly target anyone with unwanted messages or reviews
Conflicts of interest: Unlike many sites, we encourage you to write reviews of your friend's work and encourage professionals to ask their clients for recommendations on our site. However, please only review professionals and business you personally have worked with or know, and please do not review the same professional multiple times from different accounts. Remember only your friends and clients see your reviews, so you should be as unbiased and objective as you would be if you were telling one friend about another's friends work in person.
Promotional content: Please only promote a business or professional in reviews for that professional, or on the professionals profile page.
Relevance: Please make sure your contributions are relevant and appropriate to the forum. For example, reviews aren't the place for rants about political ideologies, extraordinary circumstances, or other matters that don't address the core of the client experience.
Privacy: Don’t publicize other people’s private information, and don't post people's names other than your own or the person you are reviewing.
Intellectual property: Don’t take content from other sites or users. Please write your own reviews.
Photographs: The photographs you upload should represent you and your business. Please no depictions of violence, drug use, nudity, near nudity, or anything sexually suggestive.
Regulated services: We do not allow promotion or offering of sexual services, or illegal or unauthorized sales of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or weapons. We expect you to comply with all applicable laws and carefully consider the audience for that content. Where appropriate, we may refer this content to law enforcement.
