When interacting with the Product Hunt community, either online or in person, we ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience.

Be Inclusive - Product Hunt welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. Everyone should feel welcomed and encouraged to join the community both online and at meetups. This includes, but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, color, immigration status, sex, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

Be Respectful - Disagreements and differences of opinion will come up, but they are not an excuse to be disrespectful to others or their beliefs. All members of the community should feel respected and safe.

Be Considerate - Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down others. Harassment and exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Threats of violence

  • Discriminatory jokes and language.

  • Sexually explicit or violent language.

  • Personal insults, racist or sexist language.

  • Sexual harassment.

  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

Do Not Spam - Mass messaging users, asking for upvotes, using bots, incentivizing upvotes, and any other form of artificially increasing activity on your contribution is not acceptable. Self-promoting in comments or discussions will also be removed. Only genuine activity will be accepted on the site. Attempting to "game" your contribution could result in its removal and your loss of contribution access.

Failure to meet these guidelines could result in your removal or suspension from the Product Hunt community.
