Africa Design Portal Community Guidelines
Africa Design Portal is an online platform where Ugandan creatives can showcase their work, be discovered and discover the creative work of others.. To help us keep the quality of our community high, please follow these guidelines when posting and sharing your work. If you come across content that violates these guidelines, please let us know.
- Only Upload Your Own Work:
Africa Design Portal is a platform for sharing your own creative work — not for uploading or sharing other people’s work that you like. Please do not upload projects related to non-creative services or products that you are selling. If you want to show your appreciation for someone else’s work, you can scroll to the bottom of the project and click the “Like” button, you can leave them a positive comment, or you can promote their work via social sharing sites like Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest. But please don’t upload other people’s work into your own portfolio. This creates confusion about who originally authored the work (and we are all about people getting credit for what they create!)
- Respect Intellectual Property Rights:
Don’t present other people’s work as your own or overstate your own role in creating something. Don’t use other people’s trademarks without permission. If you aren’t sure whether your use of someone else’s content or trademark in your own work is legal, you can consult publicly available reference materials.
- Respect Privacy:
Don’t use Africa Design Portal to reveal private information about other people. And don’t upload photographic portraits or nude images of identifiable people unless you have their permission.
- Automated or Scripted Behavior
Africa Design Portal is a platform for Uganda´s creatives to interact genuinely with one another. Because any automated or scripted process (such as bulk or automated following or appreciating user accounts, scripted commenting on projects, etc.) undermines the authenticity of our community, we suspend all accounts that engage in scripted behavior. For similar reasons, we also suspend any accounts that accept (or offer) compensation in exchange for positive comments or appreciations.
