The Super Duper Awesome Fantastic XversusY Community

Great and most kind peoples who are visiting this very serious, sometimes wacky, and most important website…all we ask is that you show some respect for the institution that is XversusY. Keep it civil and respectful and live by the golden rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Basically, don't abuse the site. Our community features (peanut gallery, creating your own contests, sharing links, embedding) on XversusY involves a certain level of trust. As the great Stan Lee once wrote, "With great power comes great responsibility…" And we here at XversusY believe all of our fans and visitors are superheroes…so be responsible, show respect, learn something and enjoy yourselves.

We Do Review Contests/Challenges Flagged As Inappropriate

If it comes to our attention that there is a contest/comment/link that is flagged as inappropriate, we here will review that situation and determine if it's rotten and violates our TERMS OF USE. If it is deemed inappropriate by our review board, then the contest/comment/link will be automatically removed. Please know good people that if it is removed it's because it was decided (after thoroughly examining the situation) that it was not something that best represents the site and it was in violation of our mission statement (Most likely it was in bad taste and/or inappropriate for others to see - you know the types of stuff we're referring to…imagine what 2 girls can do with one cup). Now if your content is removed and you're all up in a huff…please take a few minutes and go and read our TERMS OF USE and understand why we had to remove your content. If you still have arguments, I suggest that you do the following: Go to Home Depot and buy the following materials: 12 2x2 pieces of wood, 1 piece of plywood 4 square feet. These will be materials that will be used for your very own soapbox! Take said built soapbox to the nearest crowded corner and set up soap box. Step up onto soap box and start rant to the world about why your rude and crude comment was taken down from XversusY. If an uprising starts, well, I guess you were right. Hopefully, we can let bygones be bygones.

Now that we got that out, IF you find other contests/links/comments on XversusY with the same violations, please flag them so we can review them as well!

Now Be A Good Little XversusY User?

Okay, so here are a few simple common-sense that you can think about, and we suggest you follow, that will keep you in the clear from anything goofy or troublesome happening to you while on the site:

  • XversusY is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. Sure, yes, I know, it's a gazillion dollar business and NO ONE looks at porn but if this describes your contest/link/comment, even if it's a video of yourself dancing in front of the mirror in your underwear to Katy Perry's I Kissed A Girl…Actually, wait, that is pretty good. What I'm saying is, if the content is pornographic or has sexually explicit content (Use common sense and judgement and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about) please don't post it on XversusY. This isn't the forum or place for that sorts of material. Please be advised that we work closely with law enforcement (I wish it was the XFiles or Jack Bauer but it's not…it's better, it's the real deal men in blue and police authorities) and we will report child exploitation. Keep it cool and play it safe on XversusY.

  • Don't post videos showing dangerous or illegal acts, like animal abuse (this does not include videos like a cat playing the piano or monkey riding a segway…those types of materials are not only welcomed but celebrated here at XversusY), bomb making, or harming someone or something living in some manner. We not only don't dig on that here but we, once again, will report your ass to the authorities.

  • Come on people…XversusY is not a shock site. Non of those (insert number) people and (insert number) cups videos, things that would make you vomit, get grossed out, videos of accidents, dead bodies and stuff that would make one blow chunks or feel uneasy. We don't need any of that stuff here.

  • Respect the copyright. If you're using something from another site, do a solid and throw them a link, embed their video, show some love to the source of we're you're finding this great bit of commentary or internet factoids.

  • XversusY loves your opinions, thoughts and commentary. This site is built for exactly that. We invite these elements from you, the user. So we encourage free speech and will defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view, whatever it may be. BUT we don't dig on or permit hate speech which contains slurs or the malicious use of stereotypes intended to attack or demean a particular gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or nationality. Once again, the golden rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

  • XversusY is all about your opinions, thoughts and ideas. So get in the Peanut Gallery and have some fun and even go after your fellow. Get on he/she about an opinion or whatever you want to say to rile the person up. BUT non of that loser stuff like - predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, invading privacy, or the revealing of other members' personal information. We don't need any of that crap on this site. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from XversusY. Do you really want to be banned from this awesome site? No way jose (not singling you out jose…you're awesome).

Friends, comrades and good people who visit this site, XversusY, please take these things we listed out seriously and know that it's not joke if you cross the line. Respect the vibe and spirit we are setting here at XversusY and everything will be hunky dory fun! This site can be used in a number of ways, we're just looking for the most positive and valuable results. Violating the Terms Of Use could result in a warning and slap on the wrist OR it might result in the (insert dramatic drums here) TERMINATION of your account and deletion of all your contests. All that long and hard work right out the window. Gone. And who is deciding if your account will be terminated? Well, we here at XversusY will determine if you violated any of our Term Of Use, and if so, we'll have to act appropriately. Don't be a be ninkampoop…respect the site and it will respect you. (insert crowd applause and cheering here)
