Safe Community Terms
- XY Adviser is a growing community of individuals who share the same passion for financial education. We want our users to be able to interact with one another and share their knowledge.
- XY Adviser is under no obligation to review any messages, information or content (postings) posted on the website by users, and assumes no responsibility or liability relating to any such postings.
- Notwithstanding the above, we may from time to time monitor the postings on the website and may decline to accept and or remove any postings that contain:
- Any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including, but not limited to, any material which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state national or international law.
- We want our users to feel safe and respected when interacting with one another so any disrespectful conduct will not be tolerated and may lead to termination of your membership.
- The main one – don’t solicit people – Product or service providers – share your value but don’t talk up your offer. Unless someone tags you specifically, leave it up to the advisers to chat about their opinions. Advisers will ask for recommendations from advisers, please don’t involve yourself via comment or PM unless requested.
- Don’t post articles/blog posts – When groups turn into news aggregates – they are rarely worth returning to. So rather than post a link to a news article, summarise in your own words if you think there is something we should know.
- Third party posts – We’ve noticed third party posts have rather low engagement, so we decided to just scrap them altogether. These include events, videos, surveys, lead magnets, memes, GIFs, quotes, pics etc… These things are easy to find elsewhere so please avoid posting.
04 – Personal matters – Our focus is the drive towards professionalism. This means your personal posts are best for your personal Facebook wall.
- Complaining is annoying. Don’t vent here. We made a decision at the birth of XY to not complain about things. We get Advice has it’s fair share of drama – but we don’t want to focus on that. XY is about opportunities, rather than ripping into changes/regulators/regulations etc. There’s many forums for that, please vent there instead.
- The ‘thoughtful musing’ / low engagement rule – A catch-all guideline around keeping things engaging. Examples of posts to be removed are thoughtful musings, questions that are easily Googled, or other posts not adding value to the aggregate of the community.
- Looking to make an announcement? – If you are looking for a new job, need staff, or want something really specific? Contact Emily on firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the weekly update announcement.
