Let's stay safe together, people! 👮

Hello all, As you might have noticed recently, several of our most prominent fellows on Sololearn were harassed and ill-spoken about, which made them leave our community. Also, some users abuse the system making fake accounts and unfairly boosting their xp on fake challenges. As a moderator, I feel sorry I can not prevent this, not being able to track everything. So, for the time-being I am placing a special-purpose code. Please let me know if you notice "crime": https://code.sololearn.com/crKK5xYOqklT/

Guys, please do not spam this thread with irrelevant comments. I am taking liberty to remove any non-submission-related posts anytime here. Let's maintain this thread what it's supposed to be in the first place, thanks for complying.

Calling ALL this may concern, I just put this code together to help the mods and the community at large: https://code.sololearn.com/weQ31Obwnfhl/?ref=app I hope you all use it - Thanks✔

Sololearn is an international platform for learning we care about all of our members. A decision has been made by a team of Moderators and Sololearn Administration in regard to current events. All codes and posts involving international conflict will be removed to avoid creating an uneasy learning environment. Thank you.

BroFarOps Kaimi Thanks for your help. Our instructions are clear on republished codes: Copied codes are to be privated temporarily if the original author is not credited. Copied codes that contain proper credits are allowed to be republished and are only privated if the original author feels their rights violated.

Would you guys please stop discussing who is a boy and who is a girl and who is a unicorn or whatever in this thread? We don't care about your online and/or rl gender.

The only scenario where we'd private a code that includes proper credits would be if it was requested by the original author directly.

Once again, I'd like to issue a reminder about procedures regarding spam, harassment, or anything deemed inappropriate received in private messaging should not be reported here. Rather, these should be addressed in the following manner: 1) block the user 2) report the user's profile using the in-app Feedback feature 3) screenshots with evidentiary value should be emailed to [email protected]

General reminder about procedures regarding spam or harassment received in private Messaging: 1) block the user 2) report the user's profile using the in-app Feedback feature 3) the Activity Feed is not an appropriate place to share private messages 4) screenshots with evidentiary value should be emailed to [email protected] Also, please try refrain from taking a demanding tone with moderators. It can seem a bit like students in a school directing the janitors to clean up a mess, except worse because the janitors are volunteers (i.e. they don't get paid and you're not the volunteer coordinator). If you see a mess that needs to be cleaned up, it's more appropriate to say, "Hey, I noticed this mess over here. Thought you might like to know in case you have time to get around to it." Thanks for being our eyes and ears. 🤓

BroFarOps©®️™️🐱 As the content creation guidelines states: ᴘᴇʀsᴏɴᴀʟʟʏ ɪᴅᴇɴᴛɪғɪᴀʙʟᴇ ɪɴғᴏʀᴍᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ....... Any information you share in our community (including personal information) is, by design, open to the public and is not private. Think carefully before sharing any personally identifiable information in any public place. Remember that information shared here, and in any online community, can be seen, disclosed to, or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.  If you unintentionally post personal information in our community, we have the right to remove the post to protect your personally identifiable information. ........ So while it is advised to refrain from disclosing such information, it is not strictly prohibited. And in this case i doubt it is unintentional.

I've removed several comments from Yeva's thread and will continue to monitor things there. I ask you all to please be respectful to each other and abide by the content creation guidelines & terms of service. If you have issues with someone, remember that you have the option to block them. Lastly, keep things on topic. We moderators reserve the right to remove posts that are not related to the thread they are posted on.

Aashka Sinha Copy and pasted from an answer I posted on this thread a month ago: 'General reminder about procedures regarding spam or harassment received in private Messaging: 1) block the user 2) report the user's profile using the in-app Feedback feature 3) the Activity Feed is not an appropriate place to share private messages 4) screenshots with evidentiary value should be emailed to [email protected] Also, please try refrain from taking a demanding tone with moderators.

AL Araf and everyone else: To clarify, if there are credits on the code, the only person who can request the code be removed is the original author. Only those who don't add credit at all need to be reported here

+29

Please, do not try to resolve the reports by yourself. Regardless of the intention, that can generate a series of problems. Previously this situation has already been presented and the consequences of it have been witnessed. On the other hand, from the moment the comment was published here the report was made. This is the purpose of this thread after all.

+27

Can I remind everyone that this thread is not suited for this kind of back-and-forth? Those who engage in this kind of behavior risk getting banned when mods Request Removal of posts and a sufficient number of forcibly removed posts trigger an automatic deactivation/ban. For anyone concerned with protecting their copyrights, I recommend first reviewing the Terms of Use and its description of the distinctions between "Personal User Submission" vs "Limited Audience User Submission" vs "Public User Submission" so you understand the difference between keeping your code private and making your code public.

Anonymous as you can see Swapnil has provided us with specific information in the report. We don't mind reports being made anonymously but they must contain details like profile link to know which Mr Robot and details or proof of offense.

+26

It is advised that people review the privacy policy https://www.sololearn.com/Privacy-Policy/

+26

Email sharing in profile names, we'll reset. Email sharing in the q&a, that will be removed. Anywhere else is up to the responsibility of the individual as protections of personal information are only in-place for children under 13 (If you suspect anyone's under 13, report them to a moderator immediately), meaning that this is not an area of moderator concern.

Just putting this out there, if anyone you know (or yourself) is feeling like they are being harassed by another user please urge them to approach either Sololearn or someone from the moderation team about the matter. Edit: Just so we are all on the same page with the definition of harrasment.. Harassment is a word that describes any kind of 'ongoing' torment

The main thing to remember here is if there's credits given to the original author, the only person who can request moderator action is the original author. Please keep reporting those who refuse to add such credits
