What you CAN'T write

  • Content that promotes hatred or violence towards any group of people based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, or sexual orientation.

Use of content

You retain the rights to all content posted on writersbloc. By submitting a post, you give us the right to use it for the promotion of writersbloc.

Other registered users are permitted to use all or part of content posted by you as part of a larger work, so long as it is mainly of their own creation. In other words, people may use something you write in their own works. This is a collaborative writing site so helping each other is kind of the point of it all.

If you do use another user's writing or ideas (in whole, in part, paraphrased, word for word, etc.) or are in any way truly inspired by the content, credit must be given to the author.

Harrassment

Any posts, messages, or profile information that is intended to harrass another user will not be tolerated. Violation of this policy will result in termination of your account.

Profile image

Your profile picture may not contain mature or offensive content, to include, but not limited to:

  • Nudity
  • Pornographic material
  • Depictions of graphic or gratuitous violence
  • Images meant to harrass others

To report a violation of this policy, send us a message on our Contact page or you can click the "Suggestions, Errors, Complaints" button located at the bottom of every page.

Account termination

If you decided to delete your account, all personal information you provided will be deleted. Also, all comments you created and all messages you sent or recieved will be deleted. Your username and any blocs you started or posts will remain active to use when displaying blocs for other users. You will retain all rights to your content even after account termination.
