Dadditude is for every dad wanting to find advice and community throughout their perinatal and fatherhood journey. This includes carers, and anyone performing dad duties.
We want to ensure that Dadditude is safe and remains a platform for dads to engage in meaningful learning and conversations.
Please know that if your comment was reported in breach of the following rules, this may lead to its removal.
If you see any off-limits content, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dadditude is anti-hate and anti-racist. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any content which supports racism, bigotry, hatred against users or groups based on factors including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender or age.
Anyone generating content of this nature will be permanently banned from Dadditude and offending content immediately removed.
Rude or abusive behaviour
We value respect on Dadditude and encourage all users to approach each other with no judgment especially when disagreeing with one another. We can all have different opinions! If you’re ever concerned or worried about something someone has said, we urge that you report them immediately and our team will get right on it.
We’re asking all Dadditude users to respect this, and keep things friendly and supportive. You won’t always agree with what you read, but respecting each other encourages great conversations.
Buying, selling, and advertising
We totally understand the needs and/or extras you may have. However, we’re not equipped to provide a safe space for trading, donating or selling to occur.
We do not allow any advertising, which includes:
- buying or selling items;
- selling your services;
- promoting your business;
- promoting commercial events.
Dadditude is not a job board, or a recruitment agency. Finding work can be challenging, but there are many other online resources for this!
Anti-vaccination related content
We do think vaccination is an important topic, but we’ve seen almost all conversations around vaccination degenerate or end up being a vector for misinformation, including unverified medical advice. We want the dads on Dadditude to keep the trust in our community and unverified medical advice can put families in danger. Safety comes first in this case which is why we’re not allowing these discussions to take place on Dadditude.
Seeking relationship or arrangement
Dads join Dadditude in search of a safe place to connect with other dads and engage in interesting discussions and learning. We’re not a dating platform so do not allow posts that are seeking dates or arrangements.
Explicit or too inappropriate posts
Sex is an important topic and we welcome those conversations. However, we reserve the right to remove overly graphic descriptions and images. We may also remove content we decide to be inappropriate for our platform.
