The Team Plans: Rules
We’re so excited to have you connect with our incredible community! As we grow, we want to ensure that this group remains a safe place where we can come together to share our successes, struggles, tips, experiences, and most importantly, support for one another.
We are driven to maintain the supportive environment that we have created and to continue to provide valuable, informative content for our members. This is why we’ve created this comprehensive set of rules for conduct within the team lifestyle community – and why we enforce and stick to them.
Before making any posts or comments, please review the rules on this page.
We encourage discussions that help inspire and motivate others in relation to health and fitness, but need to ensure you STAY POSITIVE and STAY ON TOPIC.
If your post goes against any of the rules, it will be removed without warning. If your post is deemed inappropriate, you may be removed and blocked from our community without warning.
Posts may be removed, comments turned off, or admins may contribute to the conversation as a reminder of the rules at any time. All posts are subject to the discretion of the Team moderators.
- No off-topic posts or comments
- No asking for medical advice
- No self-promotion
- No promotion of outside groups
- No advertising or soliciting
- No private messaging members
- No private messaging admins
- No bullying or shaming others
- No critiquing the products
- No sharing paid content
1- NO OFF-TOPIC POSTS OR COMMENTS
All posts MUST be related to your plan, and all comments on posts should remain relevant to the posted discussion. Posts and comments that don’t adhere to this will be removed, including memes, viral videos, and fitspo posts.
If you are unsure whether your comment falls in the realm of “plan related”, you can reach out to our admins by emailing email@example.com for pre-approval.
Post and comments that are not allowed:
- Sexual posts and comments
- People you aspire to look like
- Discussions about political or religious views
- Any content we feel is not providing value to our community will be deleted, and repeat offenders removed
Discussions about diet choices as it relates to meat-eating (or non meat-eating) preferences are considered on a case-by-case basis. If you’re being turd-y and pushing your beliefs on others in a way we deem inappropriate, both you and your comments will be removed. We are a GLOBAL COMMUNITY. Be nice. Be understanding. Or be gone.
Vulnerable posts around mental health will also be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, including posts about depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other similar topics. Assuming the conversation remains positive and on-topic, we will leave the post up. We are unqualified to provide mental health guidance and recommend that you reach out to one of several professional, more capable resources available to you.
2- NO ASKING FOR MEDICAL ADVICE
Our support group is not intended to provide medical advice or be a substitute for qualified medical care. Always seek the advice of your health professional with questions regarding your condition.
This Service provides weight management and fitness advice. You acknowledge that this information is intended for general knowledge only and is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment of specific medical conditions. This Service has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease. We cannot and do not give you medical advice. You should seek prompt medical care for any specific health issues and consult your physician before purchasing any product(s).
3- NO SELF-PROMOTION
Unless shared in the appropriate threads or where otherwise clearly stated, we do not permit this. This includes links to products or groups you represent, Instagram links, personal websites, affiliate links, etc. Be sure to check out our official threads to share your social profiles and support one another.
Self-promotion is defined as:
- Posting links to your own websites or social profiles (e.g. Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube channels, blogs, websites).
- Posting affiliate links.
- Promoting your own services, programs, or events.
- Posting sales-y content – including links to personal surveys, requesting votes, posting photos with your social handles, URLs, or business names embedded, or posting any kind of “free” offers.
4- NO PROMOTION OF OUTSIDE GROUPS OR PROGRAMS
We do not allow promotion of outside groups or programs, whether originated on Facebook, virtually, or in-person (including non-Team hosted meet-ups). Do not advertise or discuss here. This group is a place to discuss your Team plan and to be a lifestyle-focused group.
5- NO ADVERTISING OR SOLICITING
NO SELLING OR SOLICITING ANYTHING – whether yours or another's products, services, courses, events, or asking for donations, votes, or group polling. Amazon links are okay when in response to a specific question, but ABSOLUTELY NO affiliate links.
6- NO PRIVATE MESSAGING MEMBERS
Even if done with the right intentions, we consider this being sales-y, and we’re not able to guarantee the quality and content of conversations taken out of the group. You and your posts will be removed.
7- NO PRIVATE MESSAGING ADMINS
If you have a question about these rules, why your post was deleted, or a plan-related question you’re not comfortable asking in the group, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please respect our moderators by keeping questions in the group or via email.
Admins and moderators do not regularly check private messages and will not open Facebook message requests from names they do not recognize. This includes reaching out directly to Abby.
8- NO BULLYING OR SHAMING OTHERS
NO SECOND CHANCES. The team lifestyle group is a place for support and a safe space for ALL members to ask questions. If you bully, attack, escalate a situation, or disrespect anyone, you will be removed and blocked from the group. You may not agree with what someone says, but be respectful.
9- NO CRITIQUING THE PRODUCTS
We're all for constructive criticism and learning how we can best serve you. If you have feedback, please kindly email us at email@example.com; We work hard behind the scenes every day to improve your experience and provide a plan that you LOVE.
10- NO SHARING PAID CONTENT
Everyone in this group comes from different places in the plan or has joined Team through different avenues. In order to protect the digital content you paid for, do not share screenshots or direct links to your content.
