Community Standards


We're cultivating a space for a community that wants to play a part in changing how the world works together. We've built a global network of animators, designers, creative thinkers, illustrators, producers, videographers, business owners, and independent professionals across hundreds of industries, who use Recrutability every day to create something they believe in. We're inspired by each and every one of our community members. We value their perspectives, beliefs, and views—they are what makes Recrutability so dynamic.

In order to maintain a respectful, inclusive, and safe environment for everyone, we've created a set of COMMUNITY STANDARDS to serve as a moral compass for behavior on our platform. These standards help define what is acceptable in the Recrutability community and marketplace and explain how violations are enforced. They aren't tied to any law but are used to govern our platform policies. They reflect our attitudes, expectations, and social norms. Our community standards are rooted in our core values — respect, safety, acceptance, support, and open-mindedness.

Just like our community, these standards will continue to grow, evolve, and change. We have embedded examples in the community standards for unacceptable activities on Recrutability. Please note that these are intended to be examples only and not a complete list.

We encourage our community to use our reporting tools when encountering anything that is unacceptable. We want to create the best experience for all community members and ask that you respect and follow these guidelines.
