Welcome to Mogul! We are excited you are here, and cannot wait for you to start exploring. You may have a few questions as you begin your journey, so we've prepared Community Guidelines and an FAQ below as a reference for you along the way.



Community Guidelines

Ultimately, Mogul is a place for unfiltered opinions, where we can be creative and free to express ourselves; where we, as women, can support and encourage one another. To achieve this, everyone involved must co-exist in ways that enable this mission. Participating in Mogul means conducting one’s self in a fun, open-minded, and respectful manner.

For this environment to flourish, there are certain behaviors that are not to be tolerated by anyone in the Mogul community. This includes:

NO Harassment.

It’s a no-brainer. Ask yourself whether what you are saying or doing online would be considered in any way harmful, offensive, flat-out rude or personally violating. If the answer is even remotely yes, then don’t do/say/post/share that thing! Posts or comments of this nature will be automatically deleted.

NO Sexual Harassment.

This is a space where everyone is equal, where love, support, understanding, and appreciation are afforded to every single person no matter their race, nationality, sexuality, religion, political affiliation or gender. In a world that is still largely patriarchal, Mogul gets to be one rare place where women get to call all the shots. This is not to say men aren’t involved, aren’t appreciated, and shouldn’t join; but the default gets to be from the female perspective, advancing the empowerment and camaraderie of women around the world. Since this is the crux of it all, don’t put this goal in jeopardy in any way!

DO NOT Post Spam or Inappropriate Content.

Enough said, just don't do it. If something on the site seems sketchy to us, we will remove it. If it is super-sketchy, we’ll have no problem reporting you and it to the appropriate officials. So don’t be foolish. In general, content that is pornographic, abusive, violent or indicative of spam will automatically be deleted and potentially reported if it is appropriate to do so.

We are more than happy for you to post about your product or services. However, the following will automatically be deleted: weapons, chemicals, essay writing services, escort services, or anything that is seen as not falling within our mission of helping to empower women through providing access to information.

NO Trolling.

Trolling obviously does not support our goals at Mogul nor does it support the members of this community. Do not engage in it, and do not feed into it if you come across someone on the site engaging in such behavior. Please instead click Report on the post in which such behavior is occurring.

NO Plagiarism.

Did you create it? If it is all your own words, or if you were the one who took the picture, then congrats, you’re free to post it! If you did not write those words or take that picture then be sure to give credit where credit is due. If it’s someone else’s work, please share the post as a link. If it’s an image you’d like to use within your post, please make sure to list the source beneath the image. We highly recommend staying away from the use of Getty Images, as those need to be purchased prior to use.

Here are a few more things to keep in mind:

Creating a Profile.

We encourage all Mogul users to fill out their profiles in full. We are trying to connect, empower, and create a sense of community. The more engaged and fully committed you are, the more we feel the love, and the more you will too! So, make sure to click a fun profile picture, link up your social media accounts, insert your favorite quote, and if you feel comfortable, list where you are from in the world!

Pen Names.

Expressing one’s unfiltered opinion (especially as a woman) can be risky in certain parts of the world. If users would prefer, they are more than welcome to have their profiles be under another name.

Editing.

Those of us working at Mogul in no way edit content that people choose to post or share on the site. These are your unfiltered opinions and our team doesn’t want to interfere or alter your voice in any way, unless it is inappropriate content as described above. The standards expected of those who work at Mogul are the same for those who use the platform. We expect ourselves to be transparent, genuine and authentic, both personally and as Mogul community members.

Constructive Criticism.

While we don’t want inappropriate posts, we do want people to express their opinions…in a constructive way. We want people to engage on the site, to get into conversations, to comment, to connect, and to discuss. So, we definitely encourage people to express their opinions and to be critical, but we ask that it be done in constructive, beneficial and thought-provoking ways. Do it with grace and in ways that are in line with the goal of creating a supportive, empowering community.

Reporting Abuse.

As the saying goes, “if you see something, say something.” If you come across something that does not seem to abide by the community guidelines set forth here, report it. It is up to all of us to maintain this community, so it is up to us to report things that do not support our shared goals. If you see an abuse, please don’t hesitate to report it via the “report button” or by emailing us at [email protected]

Terms and Conditions.

Regarding things like copyright, trademark, and intellectual property, here is a link to our terms and conditions page where you can find lots of legal jargon and more on this fun, important topic.

Have fun exploring Mogul, and please reach out to [email protected] if any more questions come up! And remember, these guidelines are subject to change at any point. Users are therefore responsible for making themselves aware of any changes and for adhering to them. Creating an account, or participating in Mogul in any way constitutes an agreement to abide by the rules listed above.
