>3. Prohibition on
Impersonating Another Community
. You may not create a community that copies another
community’s name or overall look and feel in such a way that makes it appear

>4. Enforcement of
Community Guidelines; Three Strikes Procedure
>. We reserve the right
(but have no obligation) to review any User Content, and to investigate and/or
take appropriate action against you in our sole discretion if you violate these
Community Guidelines or any other provision of our Terms or otherwise create
liability for us or any other person. Such action may include removing or
modifying your User Content, terminating your Account in accordance with
Section 10 of our Terms of Use, and/or reporting you to law enforcement
authorities. Without limiting the foregoing, or any other provision of these
Community Guidelines or our Terms (or our rights under each), we recognize that
not all violations of our Community Guidelines should result in the immediate
termination of a user's Account in all cases. In lieu of Account termination,
therefore, we may issue Strikes to any user who violates our
Community Guidelines, or our Terms, and we may remove only the specific User
Content which violates our Community Guidelines, in our sole discretion. If we
issue a Strike to you based upon your use or misuse of the Site, or your User
Content, we will email you and/or provide a notification in your Account
settings which will specify: (a) which User Content was removed; and (b) which
specific provision of our Community Guidelines, or our Terms, was violated. If
you believe in good faith that a Strike was issued in error, you may appeal
such Strike by responding directly to the corresponding Strike notification
email within fifteen (15) days of its original send date. We will approve or
reject your appeal, in our sole discretion, within thirty (30) days of our
receipt of your appeal email, or as soon as reasonably practicable. If you
receive three Strikes within the same 180-day period, unless successfully
appealed, your Account will be automatically terminated and all of your associated
User Content will be permanently deleted from our databases. Additionally, if
your Account has been terminated for any reason, you hereby acknowledge and
agree that you are prohibited from using or creating another Account to
circumvent our Community Guidelines or our Terms. Any such circumvention or
attempted circumvention by a user shall be grounds for immediate termination of
any Account belonging to such user.

>Creators in their sole
determination may remove or modify any User Content, and/or request that Bantoo
Link remove Community Members from their community.
