Have fun

Everybody who visits Skateparktour.ca enjoys skateparks. Whether they skate, BMX, scooter, inline, or mountain bike, skatepark users love to ride, progress and learn more tricks, and share good times with their friends. Skateparktour.ca comments share this same ethic.

Keep it civil / don’t be a jerk

Some discussions might get heated and that’s okay because we personally care a lot about some topics and will passionately defend our opinions. For discussions to thrive here, we need to remember to criticize ideas, not people.

Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks (personal attacks)
  • Hate speech or flaming. This includes racist, gendered, ableist, ageist, homophobic and transphobic slurs and language of any sort.
  • Harassment, dog piling, gas lighting, and doxing will not be tolerated
  • Spamming is prohibited. This means no unauthorized advertisements.
  • NSFW topics and language. Keep it friendly for our young community members too.

Comments that we find to be hateful, inflammatory, or harassing may be removed. If you don’t have something nice to say about another user, don’t say it. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.

Always try to add value to discussions you participate in

Before joining in a discussion, browse through some of the most recent and active discussions happening in the community, especially if you’re new there.

If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

Keep it tidy

Help make moderators’ lives easier by taking a moment to ensure that what you’re about to post is in the right place. That means:

  • don’t post off-topic comments or discussions.
  • don’t cross-post the same thing multiple times.
  • check if another active discussion on your topic has already been posted

If you see something, say something

Moderators are at the forefront of combating spam, mediating disputes and enforcing community guidelines and, so are you.

If you see an issue, contact the moderators if possible or flag any comments for review. If you believe someone has violated the Basic Rules, you can flag the user’s profile.
