Community Guidelines

By on ยท 2490 views

RapPad strives to be the best place online where you can express yourself through the art of rap. The community guidelines help with this by letting users know what is and isn't acceptable.

  1. Posting gore, porn, or any other "shocking" media on any parts of the website will get you immediately banned and your content removed.
  2. Spam is against the rules and you will typically be warned first. The following constitutes as spam:
    • When you share the same piece of content (such as a link, rap, etc.) more than once a day on the Forum. You are allowed to bump previously created threads.
    • When you create new threads with meaningless topics that don't spur conversation. (threads with titles such as "yo" or "sup")
    • When you create multiple threads in a short period of time (for example, 3 threads in 2 minutes), regardless of topic.
    • When you create a new thread with a directed title, 'i.e Hey user, come chat here'. (you should post on their profile page instead.)
  3. Hate speech, cyber bullying, or threats are not allowed. Since this is a subjective issue, an admin will make a call on what this constitutes. In any case, you will be given a warning beforehand.
  4. Creating a new account immediately after you have been banned is not allowed. You should wait a a few days before creating another account and rebuilding your reputation.
  5. Stealing lyrics from the internet or other RapPad users and using them in battles, cyphers, or any other area of the site where recognition is given is not allowed.
    • If you copy lyrics from any source, to either analyze or keep them then just set them to private so only you can see them.
    • This includes re-using lyrics for battles or cyphers.
  6. Commenting on threads that were created more than 2 months ago with no valuable contribution to the discussion is not allowed.
  7. Hijacking threads to get people to check out your battle, rap, or other content is frowned upon.
    • Hijacking is when you share a piece of content unrelated to the ongoing discussion in a thread.
  8. Impersonating other accounts, celebrities, or making a meme account.

Community Managers

There are currently 3 community managers. You can contact them below. If you are contacting us because you feel you were wrongfully banned, you should message the admin that banned you otherwise your message will be ignored. You cannot apply to be a community manager. They are chosen by Amir when they are required.

  1. Amir
  2. Marcus
  3. Knb

When a rule is violated a community manager will post on your profile to let you know. Repeatedly violating the rules will lead to a ban. A ban will set all your raps to unlisted, remove your profile picture, and alter your profile page. You will be unable to write or make changes to any of your songs.
