Hayag Community Guidelines
Respect the Hayag Community
We're not asking for the kind of respect
reserved for nuns, the elderly, and brain surgeons. We mean don't abuse the site.
Every cool new community feature on Hayag involves a certain level of trust. We
trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust, so please
be one of them.
We Review Videos Flagged As Inappropriate
Okay, this one is more about us than
you. When a video gets flagged as inappropriate, we review the video to determine
down by the system. If we remove your video after reviewing it, you can assume that
we removed it purposefully, and you should take our warning notification seriously.
Take a deep breath, read our Terms of Service and try to see it from our perspective. If you find other videos
on Hayag with the same violations, please flag them so we can review them as well!
Don't Cross the Line
Here are some common-sense rules that
will help you steer clear of trouble:
- Hayag is not for
obsene or sexually explicit content (hardcore). If this describes your video, even if
it's a video of yourself, don't post it on Hayag. Also, be advised that we work
closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation. Please read our Safety
Tips and stay safe on Hayag.
- Don't post videos
showing bad stuff like animal abuse, drug abuse, or bomb making.
- Graphic or gratuitous
violence is not allowed. If your video shows someone getting hurt, attacked, or
humiliated, don't post it.
- Hayag is not a
shock site. Don't post gross-out videos of accidents, dead bodies and similar things.
- Respect copyright.
Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means don't
upload videos you didn't make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns
the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos
made by other users, without necessary authorizations. Read our Copyright Tips for

speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't
permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic
origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender
- There is zero tolerance
for predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, invading privacy, or the
revealing of other members' personal information. Anyone caught doing these things
may be permanently banned from Hayag.
- Everyone hates
spam. Do not create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order
to increase views. It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or
repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
Please take these rules
seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer
your way around them—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which

from creating any new accounts.
Hayag is for the Community

dig in and get involved!
Have fun with the site. There's a lot here to see, and lots of folks making
amazing stuff—one of them might be you! Equipment's getting cheaper and easier to
use all the time, so dive in and enjoy.
Let folks know what you think. Feedback's part of the experience, and when
done with respect, can be a great way to make friends, share stories, and make your
time on Hayag richer. So leave comments, rate videos, make your own responses to
videos that affect you, enter contests of interest—there's a lot going on and a
lot of ways to participate here.
You may not like everything you see. Some of the content here may offend
under the video you're watching to submit it for review by Hayag staff. If it
doesn't, then consider just clicking on something else—why waste time watching videos
you don't like?
That's it! Thanks for reading!
