Community Guidlines

Maxim is for young people (age 6-19) wanting to find community.

What's off-limits?

We want to ensure that Maxim is safe and remains a platform for teeanger to engage in fun and meaningful conversations.

Please know that if your post or comment was reported in breach of the following rules, this may lead to the permanent deactivation of your account.

If you see any off-limits content, please report it! All of us on Maxim will be grateful.

Hate speech

Maxim is anti-hate and anti-racist. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any content which supports racism, bigotry, hatred against users or groups based on factors including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender or age.

Anyone generating content of this nature will be permanently banned from Maxim and offending content immediately removed.

Rude or abusive behaviour

We value respect on Maxim and encourage all users to approach each other with no judgment especially when disagreeing with one another. We can all have different opinions! If you’re ever concerned or worried about something someone has said, we urge that you report them immediately and our team will get right on it.

We’re asking all Maxim users to respect this, and keep things friendly. You won’t always agree with what you read, but respecting each other encourages great conversations.

Buying, selling, and advertising

We do not allow any advertising, which includes:

  • buying or selling items;

  • selling your services;

  • promoting your business;

  • promoting commercial events.


Maxim is not a job board, or a recruitment agency. Finding work can be challenging, but there are many other online resources for this!

Also, in some areas that we operate, multi-level marketing is against the law.

In particular, we will strictly take down:

  • any content promoting or recruiting for multi-level marketing schemes (MLM);

  • content asking for services;

  • surveys on behalf of third parties (this does not include Maxim Polls).


Seeking relationship or arrangement

We’re not a dating platform so do not allow posts that are seeking dates or arrangements.


Explicit or too inappropriate posts

Sex is an important topic and we welcome those conversations. However, we reserve the right to remove overly graphic descriptions and images. We may also remove content we decide to be inappropriate for our platform.
