Forum Terms of Use

We all like dick. Don't be one.

The Short Version:


The HomeGlory Forum is a place to connect, share and discuss. It is created here to become a great resource for the gloryhole community but can only do this if members choose to behave in a  responsible and supportive way. Below we set out a code of conduct which we expect all members to adhere to but in short here’s what we ask.

Don’t be a dick.

Stay on Topic.

Be respectful and mindful of others.

Don’t post spammy links or irrelevant links.

Report anything out of order.

Contribute relevant stuff.

Don’t be a dick.


Here’s the longer version.

This is a civilized place for connecting with other gloryhole fans, sharing stories and discussing all things related to gloryholes and the people who use them. By participating in this forum, you are agreeing follow this Code of Conduct.

With this Code of Conduct, we hope to help you understand how best to behave in the HomeGlory members Forum, what you can expect from moderators, and what type of actions or content may result in temporary or permanent suspension from forum participation. We will investigate any abuse reports and may moderate public content within the Community that we feel is in opposition to the aims and spirit of this forum.

HomeGlory users worldwide bring wildly different perspectives, ideas, and experiences, and range from people who are thinking about trying a gloryhole in a public place, those who have built their own, those who have bought a gloryhole online and those who just like fantasising about gloryhole play. We are committed to making HomeGlory and the HomeGlory Forum a welcoming environment for all the different voices and perspectives here, while maintaining a space where people are free to express themselves.

Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in the HomeGlory Forum a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Standards

Treat the HomeGlory Community Forum with respect. We are a community, lets be kind to each other. We all love dicks. Please don’t be one. Consider this the default standard that all others sit beneath.

The following are not hard and fast rules, merely aids to the human judgment of our members. Use these guidelines to keep this a clean, fun and helpful resource to the gloryhole community that you’ve joined.

Best Practices for helping us build a great forum for gloryhole adventurers

  • Be respectful and considerate.

    • Be welcoming and open-minded. Other forum members may not have the same experience level or background as you, but that doesn't mean they don't have good ideas to contribute and questions to ask. We encourage you to be welcoming to new members and those just getting started. If someone wants advice on how to buy a gloryhole online or how to find a local gloryhole, be nice and help them out.

    • Respect each other. Nothing sabotages healthy conversation like rudeness. Be civil and don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech. Don’t harass or grief anyone. Treat each other with dignity and consideration in all interactions. We’re all here for a good time.

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Avoid name-calling, ad hominem attacks, responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content, and knee-jerk contradiction. Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

  • Communicate with empathy. Disagreements or differences of opinion are a fact of life. Being part of a community means interacting with people from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, many of which may not be your own. If you disagree with someone, try to understand and share their feelings before you address them. This will promote a respectful and friendly atmosphere where people feel comfortable asking questions, participating in discussions, and making contributions.

  • Contribute in a positive and constructive way.

    • Improve the discussion. Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later. The gloryhole community that exists is often hidden. We want this forum to be a safe place for people to contribute. Contribute well for the benefit of all.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

  • Be clear and stay on topic. Communicating with strangers on the Internet can be awkward. It's hard to convey or read tone, and sarcasm is frequently misunderstood. Try to use clear language, and think about how it will be received by the other person.

This applies to sharing links, as well. Any links shared in the Forum should be shared with the intent of providing relevant and appropriate information. Links should not be posted to simply drive traffic or attention to a site. Links should always be accompanied by a full explanation of the content and purpose of the link. Posting links, especially unsolicited ones, without relevant and valuable context can come across as advertising or serving even more malicious purposes.

Additionally, the HomeGlory Forum is for connecting, sharing ideas, and helping each other have a safer, more enjoyable time in our gloryhole adventures. Off-topic comments are a distraction (sometimes welcome, but usually not) from getting helping us explore and develop this community. Staying on topic is good.

  • Share mindfully. When asking others to give you feedback or or an opinion, only share valuable and relevant resources to provide context. Don't post links that don't add value to the Topic, and don't post unsolicited links that have no relevance.

Additionally, don't share sensitive information. This includes your own email address. We don't allow the sharing of such information in this Forum, as it can create security and privacy risks for the poster, as well as other users. If you'd like to invite other Forum members to connect with you privately, do this through a direct message. 

  • Keep it tidy. Make the effort to put things in the right place, so that we can spend more time discussing and less time cleaning up. So:

    • Don’t start a topic in the wrong category.

    • Don’t cross-post the same thing in multiple topics.

    • Don’t post no-content replies.

    • Don't "bump" posts, unless you have new and relevant information to share.

    • Don’t divert a topic by changing it midstream.

Rather than taking an existing topic in a radically different direction, open a new topic.

  • Be trustworthy.

    • Always be honest. Don’t knowingly share incorrect information or intentionally mislead other HomeGlory Forum members. If you don’t know the answer to someone’s question but still want to help, you can try helping them research or find resources instead. HomeGlory moderators will also be active in the Forum, so if you’re unsure of an answer, it’s likely a moderator will be able to help.

What is not Allowed

  • Threats of violence. You may not threaten violence towards others or use the site to organize, promote, or incite acts of real-world violence or terrorism. Think carefully about the words you use, the images you post, and even the software you write, and how they may be interpreted by others. Even if you mean something as a joke, it might not be received that way. If you think that someone else might interpret the content you post as a threat, or as promoting violence or terrorism, stop. Don't post it. In extraordinary cases, we may report threats of violence to law enforcement if we think there may be a genuine risk of physical harm or a threat to public safety.

  • Hate speech and discrimination. While it is not forbidden to broach topics such as age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation, we do not tolerate speech that attacks a person or group of people on the basis of who they are. Just realize that talking about these or other sensitive topics can make others feel unwelcome, or perhaps even unsafe, if approached in an aggressive or insulting manner. We expect our Community members to be respectful when discussing sensitive topics.

  • Bullying and harassment. We do not tolerate bullying or harassment. This means any habitual badgering or intimidation targeted at a specific person or group of people. In general, if your actions are unwanted and you continue to engage in them, there's a good chance you are headed into bullying or harassment territory.

  • Impersonation. You may not impersonate another person by copying their avatar, posting content under their email address, intentionally using a deceptively similar username or otherwise posing as someone else. Impersonation is a form of harassment.

  • Doxxing and invasion of privacy. Don't post other people's personal information, such as phone numbers, private email addresses, physical addresses, credit card numbers, Social Security/National Identity numbers, or passwords. Depending on the context, such as in the case of intimidation or harassment, we may consider other information, such as photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject's consent, to be an invasion of privacy, especially when such material presents a safety risk to the subject.

  • Sexually explicit content. Interesting one. Please refrain from posting sexually explicit content of your gloryhole adventures in the forum. Rather do this in a twitter or other social media account an link to these if it’s appropriate to the topic being discussed. The forum is not designed to be a porn repository. It’s for discussion, connecting, sharing ideas and opinions. If it is overrun with porn then the useful stuff won’t be seen. If you’d like your social media link featured on the Inspiration page then get in touch.

  • Spam. Respect the HomeGlory Forum. Don’t post advertisements, link to spammy websites, or otherwise vandalize the Forum. This Forum is meant for HomeGlory users to discuss, connect, learn, and share ideas with one another - not for advertising or other spam-like content. Content that we deem spammy will be removed.

  • Copyrighted or illegal content. Only post your own stuff. You are responsible for what you post. If you post something you didn’t create yourself, you must have the right to post it. You may not post illegal content, including content illegal under copyright and trademark laws, links to illegal content, or methods for circumventing the law.

  • Active malware or exploits. Being part of this Forum includes not taking advantage of other members of the Forum. We do not allow anyone to use our platform for exploit delivery (e.g. Using the Forum as a means to deliver malicious executables) or as attack infrastructure (e.g. Organizing denial of service attacks or managing command and control servers).

  • Anyone under the age of 18. If you're a child or young adult under the age of 18, you may not have an account on the HomeGlory Forum (or HomeGlory itself). HomeGlory does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 18. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 18, we will unfortunately have to close both your HomeGlory Community Forum and HomeGlory.com accounts.

  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate. The HomeGlory Forum is a safe and respectful space and should be treated as such.

Enforcement

What HomeGlory Forum Members Can Do

  • If you see a problem, report it. Moderators have special authority; they are responsible for this Forum. But so are you. With your help, moderators can be effective Forum facilitators.

When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just report it using the option in the posts settings menu. If enough reports accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.

Our Responsibilities

There are a variety of actions that we may take in response to inappropriate behavior or content. It usually depends on the exact circumstances of a particular case. We recognize that sometimes people may say or do inappropriate things for any number of reasons. Perhaps they did not realize how their words would be perceived. Or maybe they just let their emotions get the best of them. Of course, sometimes, there are folks who just want to spam or cause trouble.

Each case requires a different approach, and we try to tailor our response to meet the needs of the situation. We'll review each situation on a case-by-case basis. In each case, we will have a diverse team investigate the content and surrounding facts and respond as appropriate, using this Code of Conduct to guide our decision.

Actions we may take in response to a flag or abuse report include, but are not limited to:

  • Content Removal

  • Content Blocking

  • Community Forum Account Suspension

  • Community Forum Account Termination
