Spirit of the Policy

We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children. When we are made aware of apparent child exploitation, we remove the content and potentially escalate the content based on compliance with applicable law.  We understand that sometimes people may share nude imagery of their own children with good intentions; however, we remove these images because of the potential for abuse by others and to help avoid the possibility of people reusing or repurposing the imagery. Under no circumstances is the sexualization of minors acceptable on the Medal platform. We remain committed in working with national organizations and legally cooperating with any investigations when appropriate. Additionally, we reserve the right to terminate any user account which violates our Child Abuse and Exploitation policies.  

Principles and Rational


We recognize Medal as a social media platform where people may use many different channels such as our application or Discord to discuss different topics or share personal stories and experiences. However, in order to create a safe environment for our community we base our standards generally around the safety of all, especially children. 


The goal of our Community Standards is to encourage expression and create a safe environment. We base our policies on input from our community and from experts in fields such as technology and public safety. Our policies are also rooted in the following principles: 


Safety is an essential factor in community building. At Medal, we are dedicated to removing content that encourages or causes real-world harm, including (but not limited to) physical, emotional, or financial injury as well as privacy violation that could harm a targeted individual(s). 


We embrace the different backgrounds and diverse views of our community. We want to provide a platform and opportunity for users to not only share their gaming experience, but build lasting bonds with one another. We err on the side of allowing content, even when some find it objectionable, unless removing that content cant prevent real-world harm to the user. We vow to discuss and consider allowing content that otherwise violates our stands if we deem it to be newsworthy, or important to the public interest based on global and national trends. 


We recognize the diverse backgrounds of our community from around the world. It's important for us, at Medal, to keep our policies broad in order to apply them consistently and fairly based on an ever-adapting global culture. Because our community standards must transcend cultural, regional, and linguistic barriers, we recognize the need for a broad but consistent standard. Because of the broadness of our policies, in some cases, and when provided with additional context, we will have to make decisions based on the spirit, as opposed to the letter, of the policy.
