Hornet Live Guidelines

We are so excited to introduce Hornet Live, the latest way for our users to connect with each other, now in real-time! But we also want to ensure that Hornet Live remains a clean, safe environment that is open and welcoming to all users.

There are strict guidelines for what is and is not allowed when you go live, and these rules are stricter than what you’ll find elsewhere on Hornet. 

Below is a summary of the types of content that can get you suspended from Hornet Live or removed entirely. Please note that some offenses may result in immediate account deletion, and users with multiple suspensions may face account deletion as well. 

When in doubt, always lean on the side of clean content!
