Snog Community Guidelines
Last updated March 4, 2012
Snog is an awesome place to discover new people and our community of users want your help to keep it that way. We are all in this together so let's help keep Snog clean and fun!
Stick to these basic rules:
Always wear appropriate clothing
- Bikinis by the beach or pool
- Bikinis indoors
- In your underwear (knickers, lingerie)
- Bare back
- Covering breasts with arm/hand or "bras"
- Revealing tops
- Sexually suggestive poses
- Shirtless by the beach or pool
- Shirtless anywhere else
- In your underwear (y-fronts, boxers)
- Bare back
- Pants or shorts too low
- Showing too much underwear
- Sexually suggestive poses
Seriously, don't post tasteless, naked, or sexually suggestive photos. There are plenty of other websites on the internet where you can do that. If you continue to upload inappropriate photos your account will get permanently suspended. Two strikes and your out! (depending on the severity) If you have a great number of inappropriate photos we will suspend your account.
Be yourself. No fakes
Don't pretend to be someone else. Honestly, you'll get way more Snogs and Marries just for being yourself. Copyrights are important to us and if you don't own rights to a photo, don't post it. If you create a fake account after you have verified your account, we will permanently suspend that account and ban you from the site.
We want to keep Snog authentic and we will take down any fake accounts.
Snog doesn't tolerate threats, bullying, harassment or hate speech. Doing this kind of thing will get your account deleted and possibly reported to the police. Seriously.
Sexual propositions. Don't do it and don't post in your profile.
Making sexual propositions or sexual innuendos to anyone under the age of 18 years old is against our terms of service and illegal in many places.
This kind of activity will get your account deleted, permanently suspended and reported to your local police.
Good rule of thumb, don't make any sexual propositions to anyone at whatever age or post anything sexual on your taglines, headlines or about me. We will suspend your account. This is the not site to satisfy your sexual fantasies!
Spam and Repetitive posting
Spam is really annoying. The Snog community doesn't like it so don't post pictures or comments in a repetitive or automated way to promote things like your account, a website, a product or to get to know people. Each user is unique, they deserve better.
Spamming people to ask for personal information will get your account suspended permanently.
Show your face in your profile picture. The Snog community are super positive and you'll get more Snogs and Marries by showing your face. If you don't, your account will get suspended.
About me, headlines, content, comments and messages
Nudity, rude comments, racism, cursing, harassment, excessive creepiness, spam, fakers, underage users, sexual propositions... none of it flies here. Ask real questions! Keep it clean; keep it fun; keep it focused on opinions and advice.
Keep it interesting and fun! Remember to keep 'em clean or we'll clean 'em up for you. The same guidelines for photos applies here.
Frequently asked questions:
- What is allowed in the Interest Pages?
- Are drugs, alcohol, sex okay in the Interest Pages?
- Why was I suspended, I am verified?
- Why was I suspended, I am real?
- Why was my account disabled?
- How long am I banned?
- What happened to my profile picture/bio?
- How do I report a bad user or question?
- Why was a picture flagged/banned?

- How do I block a user?
- What can blocking a user do?
- I don't have a government issued ID, what can I use to prove my age?

Anything under the sun as long as it is appropriate.
General topics of drugs, smoking, alcohol topics are okay but specific drugs like lsd, ketamine as well as anything that may promote interest or activity in areas such as suicide, illegal drug use, cutting, hate, bullying, pornography, crime, rape etc. are definitely not okay and will be taking down.
Did you upload somebody else's photo after you got verified? If your answer is "Yes" then most likely your account has been permanently suspended. We don't tolerate fakes here.
Have you verified your account? If "Yes" then it's our mistake .....sorry. Please write us a message at email@example.com. If "No" then please follow the instructions on your suspension message so we can get you back snogging again.
Pretty simple, really. You posted stuff that the Snog team or community didn't appreciate. Nudity, rude comments, racism, cursing, harassment, excessive creepiness, spam, fakers, underage users... none of it flies here. Ask real questions! Keep it clean; keep it fun; keep it focused on opinions and advice.
If this is your first offense, your account will be re-enabled in about 24 hours. You might want to brush up on your etiquette, though, because we have a two-strike policy. Next strike, you're out...
... Unless, of course, we made a mistake. If you'd like your account reviewed, drop us a line.
Same rules that apply to questions apply to profiles. Keep 'em clean, or we'll clean 'em for you.
Flag 'em down and let us know they're a problem. Tap the report icon just below a user's profile to file a report.
Pretty simple, really. You posted stuff that the Snog team or community didn't appreciate. Nudity, too revealing clothes or sexually suggestive photos are not okay and .... none of it flies here. Keep 'em clean or we'll clean 'em up for you. Please refer to our photo guidelines again.
Have you sent us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org? If "Yes" then your account will be looked at in the next 24 hours. Remember, second offense leads to permanent suspension.
There's a quick way to block another Snog member who is bothering you:
On that person's Snog page under their profile picture there is an icon that says "Block User". Click this icon so that that person cannot send you SMAs or any private messages. I hope this will give you some power to stop the harasser.
When blocking a user the blocked user cannot snog, marry, avoid or write private messages to you but they can still view your profile.
Your school ID would do as long as we can see your name and your grade.
Well, a better question might be "Did you post clean content on your headline, tagline, about me, background or photos?" If you can answer "YES," then we might have made a mistake... it happens. Click here to let us know and we'll take care of it.
If your answer to that question is "NO" or even "MAYBE," well... please change it or take it down then let us know and we will review it.
Thanks so much for your help to keep Snog an awesome community,
