Everyone who contributes to i-Strive is 13+ — so, we should all know how to play nice with one another. We understand that playing nice can mean different things to different people. So, in the spirit of harmony, we have some basic guidelines for our contributors. We’re not going to lecture you, but we do ask you to review our guidelines before submitting.
Some of the more popular contributions to i-Strive include: Reviews, Blogs, Photos, Videos, Events, and Direct messages
We’ve included specific guidelines for those below. If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, please reach out to us at [email protected]
Hate Speech, Bigotry & Threats of Violence: i-Thrive is a safe space for everyone to post their reviews, information about their NDIS experience, and more.
Threats to Personal Privacy: Our safe space policy extends to our users’ sense of personal well-being. We do not tolerate any threats to personal privacy – do not release any private information about an individual or company that might jeopardize their safety.
Plagiarized Content or Unauthorized Use of Content: We know you’re creative and original. Your posts should reflect that. Do not post any content that you do not explicitly own.
Irrelevant Content: Remember back when your shop teacher, dad, or some otherwise elder taught you “K.I.S.S.”? (Keep it simple… you get the idea). We strive to keep things simple here at i-Strive. Please don’t post any irrelevant content on the site.
Promotions: Unless you’re using your Professional Account to add content to your business’s profile page, we generally frown upon promotional content. Again, we want to keep things as user-friendly as possible.
Conflicts of Interest: We ask i-Strive users to do what is best for others always. Conflicts of interest—in other words, when you gain from a situation – hurt everyone in the long run. Keep conflicts of interest off our site and forums. For example, you shouldn’t write bogus reviews for your friends, family, or competitors.
Payment Demands: Please don’t use i-Strive as a platform to demand payment from someone who has wronged you. We are only a place for reviews, not a place for negotiations.
Fake, Spambot, Abusive Reviews: To put it simply, It’s not tolerated for i-Strive to leverage the power of reviews they must be accurate. If you dispute a review please report it for investigation.
These are general guidelines. We ask that for all posts, you use your best judgment. Email us with any questions about content.
We appreciate reviews here at i-Strive because reviews are what help other i-Strive members make sound decisions about their purchases. Before posting a review, we ask others to do the following:
Personalize your experience in your review. Readers are more likely to understand what to expect when they can apply that experience to themselves. Please do not generalize your experience (that’s not helpful!) or make derogatory accusations. Write about what happened to you and leave the judgment to the reader!
Maintain accuracy over everything you write. It might be tempting to exaggerate an experience when you’ve had an awful go of it. But people can sense when you’re exaggerating, so it’s best to tell it as it is. As well as maintaining accuracy, consider running your review through spell check before posting.
Edit your update if anything changes. If you had a terrible experience that was somehow made right, that’s worth an update. You can make updates to reviews within thirty days of posting the original.
Using a photo well makes all the difference. We ask users only to submit photos and videos that enhance their reviews. Photos and videos should be high-quality, contain relevant information (such as a good picture of the outside of the building, the quality of the cars, etc.), and be original. i-Strive reserves the right to remove personal experience pictures from business photo galleries. However, we will always allow personal experience photos to accompany your reviews themselves.
The play nice rule extends to our message boards. i-Strive has a messaging feature, like many other sites, that keeps you connected with others. Please don’t use this feature to do any of the following: Harass others, Bother others, or Send inappropriate content
Professional accounts differ from general user accounts in a few ways. i-Strive offers NDIS Providers the unique ability to maintain a site profile and business image. With this in mind, here are some business account-specific guidelines.
No paid review solicitation. Please do not contact any i-Strive members, or potential members, with payment offers for a useful review. We promise that it doesn’t look good on your end. It throws off your review statistics, and it also looks fishy. Any business account found doing this could risk losing their i-Strive account, as well as valuable customers!
No bashing your competition. i-Strive is meant to be a safe space for people to share their opinions. We allow people to share their views so other consumers can make informed decisions about their purchases. Therefore, we ask that you use your Professional Page Description section to focus on accurately describing your offerings rather than bashing another’s.
Use public forums and comments to your advantage. Professional accounts have the unique position of responding to public comments regarding their business. Calmly, compassionately, and fairly resolving a customer issue in the eye of the public puts you at an advantage. It allows consumers to see you are willing to work with customers. Therefore, we recommend using public forums over direct messaging not only for transparency but also for your benefit.
Video & Photo Guidelines. With Professional photos and videos, we ask that you consider your audience. Please don’t include graphic violence, nudity, content of a sexual nature, or harassment of other businesses in your photos or videos. Use common sense, and if you have any questions about what i-Strive considers appropriate, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Event Posting Guidelines. i-Strive isn’t just looking for promotions or sales in our events category. We’re looking for events you’d want your participants and carers to attend.
