About Power Club

Power Club is a learning ecosystem where the most creative, brilliant minds of the world come together to create, collaborate, share and make magic happen. Every individual here is carefully selected based on their commitment to contribute to the community.
We are a place for learners from diverse backgrounds to thrive as well as feel safe, respected and welcome. We inspire and learn from each other.

Content Guidelines

Power Club creates a safe environment for users to create and share content with each other, directly or through Circles.
At the heart of Power club are Power circles - high value communities designed by experts around various passions, and run by facilitators and teens, just like you.
They create experiences for teens to collaborate with each other via dialogues/discussions, posts and challenges/projects. Additionally, users can get together in live huddles/workshops run by experts, facilitators and fellow young achievers.
If you see something on Power Club that does not follow the Community Standards, please use the report or flag option near the content.
Below are the things to be ensured for content creation on Power Club:
  • Share content that you own
  • Share only the content that is owned by you or you have the right to share. Remember to post authentic content, and do not post anything you have copied or collected from the internet that you do not have the right to post.
  • Share platform-appropriate content
  • Do not post sexual, nude or suggestive content.
  • Foster meaningful and genuine interactions
  • Refrain from creating any content that can be perceived as bullying, harassment or disrespect to another person.
  • Share encouraging ideas
  • Maintain a supportive environment on Power Club by encouraging ideas and actions and strictly refraining from suggesting any kind of self-harm.
  • Verify the source of content before sharing
  • Be extremely thoughtful before sharing news or content that does not have any reliable source.

Community Guidelines

Power Club is a place for all teenagers to thrive as well as feel safe, respected and welcome.
Our team of moderators review most content before it is published, but we need your help as well in keeping this a safe space!
Here are a few guidelines to help you keep Power Club a friendly and creative community:
  • Be original:
  • Share content that’s created by you and credit the original source in case you’re curating references. Plagiarising the work of others is not cool. When sharing content by others, be sure to have permission to share it on this platform and give them the due credit.
  • Be relevant:
  • Whatever you share should be relevant to the topic in question. Do not spam or post incorrect, inappropriate, or irrelevant content. If you are creating against a challenge, submit a post that is relevant to it. Similarly, if you are submitting a response to a dialogue, ensure it is relevant to the dialogue topic.
  • Be respectful:
  • When sharing content, remember that other younger learners will also be looking at them. Be mindful and share content that’s appropriate for all age groups, user groups, and their corresponding beliefs and preferences.
  • Be safe:
  • Keep your personal info private. For safety reasons, do not share any information or details with other users that can be traced back to your digital identity. This includes last names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, links to social media sites or websites. Also, do not ask for personal information of other users.
  • Be honest:
  • Don’t try to impersonate other users, spread rumours, or try to trick the community.
  • Be an awesome digital citizen:
  • Help keep the app safe and relevant for everyone. If you think any content or user is mean, insulting, gory, or inappropriate, report or flag it to us so we can review and take the appropriate action.

Enforcements

We are here to help each other learn, grow, and have fun together. Power Club is a platform for teens to express themselves freely, and to uphold this freedom, we are also committed to keeping this community a safe space. If any user violates the guidelines, we will take a number of steps, including issuing a warning, removing the content (including reported messages), or suspending the accounts responsible. Let’s keep our community creative, safe, and welcoming for everyone!
Power Club Circles and Moderator Guidelines:
  • Moderating the Community:
  • The moderators are the people that our users look to, not just for enforcement of rules and policies and maintaining the peace, but also as role models for what behaviour is appropriate on the platform. The users are moderated on a ‘post moderation’ basis which shall mean that moderation process takes place after the content has been added, including but not limited to dialogues, posts and creation of user profiles.
  • User Complaints:
  • When a user raises a complaint about the community or any other user it is the moderator’s responsibility to handle the complaint in a professional manner. This is for their own protection, as well as to protect our platform. Moderators may, at their own discretion, remove the user from the community or flag the user if required. Complaints can be at times petty, abusive, exaggerated, or in some cases, completely false. Regardless of the above mentioned situations, it is important to resist the temptation to argue or refute the complaint. Power Club shall take appropriate action against all complaints raised by the user.
  • Resolving Conflicts:
  • It is the moderator’s role to monitor any conflicting situation and step in if necessary. To create a safe environment for the users, moderators may focus on managing the problems, including addressing unhealthy behaviour that may not directly break a rule. It is appropriate to moderate individuals who are deliberately crossing the line to see what they can get away with, however, what moderators can choose to follow is that the rules are not infallible, and they should use their judgement to enforce rules only when it makes sense, and not blindly following the letter of the law. A moderator may intervene if a user resorts to personally insulting another user, using language that breaches the Terms of Use, or posts anything that a reasonable individual would consider offensive, abusive or hate speech. As the first course of action, the moderator may remove the offensive content, by flagging the particular content. Appropriate warnings or infractions may be necessary if there was a breach.
  • Flagging and Removing Content:
    • All users have the ability to report the content that they feel is inappropriate and are encouraged to do so. Content shall be removed from the community only when Power Club removes the reported content.
    • Moderators shall flag the content if it is spam or malicious or is likely to cause offence to the extent that they feel immediate removal is necessary.
    • Power Club members/users shall be informed at all times if their content or parts of their content have been removed or replaced or they are muted.
  • Removing Individuals:
    • Moderators have the ability to remove certain users from the community.
    • However, moderators shall make use of this power only if it is necessary such as in cases of extreme or repeated contraventions of the Terms of Service and Terms of Use.
    • The purpose of granting this power is to allow all users to understand the consequences of their behaviour and rectify it in the future. Further, this means that users that are clearly acting in bad faith on the platform may not be given the same leniency and should be muted or banned depending on the circumstances.
  • Communicating with Community Members:
    • The moderator can directly communicate with the users and request that they remove/edit their content.
    • Moderators can only communicate directly with community members regarding moderation issues if they feel completely comfortable in doing so.
    • Moderators should be considerate of the user’s feelings while communicating any issue.
    • Moderators have overall responsibility for the community and all of its users and issues related to moderation.
  • Moderator Tone:
    • Moderator’s tone in all communications with the users should be professional, confident, polite, fair, helpful, non-accusatory and objective.
    • Moderators should consider whether it is appropriate to communicate with the user publicly on the platform itself or to message them privately. If there is any doubt, or if issues escalate to a point where the moderators feel uncomfortable, they should take appropriate action themselves.
    • It is important to remember that the role is not just about dealing with inappropriate content or other contraventions but also about providing support and advice and encouraging other users to get involved.
