Community Guidelines 

The DGPT community is encouraged to actively engage in healthy debate in DGPT social spaces on a variety of topics. However, the DGPT does not condone any hate speech or sanction any language that demeans, disrespects, or inappropriately addresses other people. On all DGPT social media channels, on the DGPT YouTube channel, on the Disc Golf Network, and in person at our events, the following community standards are in place. 

Individuals may be restricted or removed from social spaces, have their comments deleted, or can be otherwise acted upon if they engage in any of the following behavior: 

Harassment & Bullying

  • We have zero tolerance for bullying of any kind.
  • Don’t make personal attacks directed at other users.
  • Don’t criticize other users via name-calling or profanity.
  • Any form of sexism, sexual harassment, or sexual objectification is unacceptable.

Targeted Attacks Based on Gender Identity

  • Purposely and maliciously misgender any person (player, commentator, organizer, etc) or suggest that their gender identity is not valid. Calling a trans woman a man, or calling a trans man a woman is a violation of this standard. 
  • Engage in any hate speech. Hate speech is defined as public speech that expresses hate or encourages violence towards a person or group
  • Make hurtful jokes or comments regarding a person’s gender identity.

Hateful Activities

  • Don’t attack anyone based on race, ethnicity, physical appearance, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry, religion or creed, sex, age, physical or mental disability, veteran status, genetic information, or citizenship.
  • Don’t use slurs or negative stereotypes, caricatures, or generalizations.
  • Don’t share false or misleading content about individuals or groups that promotes fear, hate or prejudice.
  • Don’t deliberately spread false information that causes harm.
  • Don’t encourage or incite violence.

Impersonation & Representation

  • Don’t intentionally misrepresent yourself by creating a profile pretending to be another user.
  • Don’t create a user name that is a targeted attack or reference to one person, group, or issue.
  • Don’t create multiple profiles under the same or similar username to violate these guidelines.

Explicit Content

  • Don’t use offensive, vulgar, or harmful language.
  • Don’t share inappropriate, harmful, offensive, or lewd content.

Enforcement Policy

If a comment is deleted, it is because it is not compliant with our guidelines. The deletion of comments should be taken by the author as a warning. More than one instance of non-compliance can result in having commenting privileges revoked. We reserve the right to suspend or remove users who violate these guidelines at any point. The DGPT and all affiliated media channels and partners reserve the right to turn off or restrict commenting when and where appropriate to aid in the enforcement of this policy. On the DGPT YouTube channel, there are certain commenting restrictions in place to disallow bad actors from abusing the chat. If you are new to the DGPT channel, you may not be allowed to comment for up to 24 hrs after you become a subscriber.

The Disc Golf Pro Tour has security teams at all events. People who violate these community standards on site will also be warned or removed from the event grounds.
