Content Guidelines

We want to give users the most freedom when creating their Hotspots. There are just a few conditions to make it an enjoyable place for everyone.

1) Don't ruin it for others.

Several people may use a Hotspot managed by a company or a person, don't give them a reason to kick you or anyone else off their property. You don't want cops called on you for something someone else did. Be respectful of property. Always.

2) Don't be inappropriate

Do not upload innapropriate images or post lewd comments, you will get banned.

3) Don't share fraudulent locations.

Having to sift through dozens of fake locations to find one that is good sucks, just dont do it.

4) Don't be a Jerk

Pretty much all rules come down to this, don't be a jerk to others. You'll be warned, then you'll be asked to leave.
