Community Guidelines

Policy on impersonation

Our top priority is the safety of our creators, viewers, and partners. We rely on each of you to assist us in safeguarding this unique and vibrant community. It's critical that you understand our Community Standards and how they contribute to our shared goal of keeping Supernova safe. Please read the following policy carefully. You can also find a complete list of our rules on this page.

Supernova does not allow content that attempts to impersonate a person or an account. Supernova also protects trademark owners. It may not be allowed if an account, or content on the account, causes confusion about the source of goods and services advertised.

Please report any content that you believe violates this policy.

  • If you believe your or another creator's account is being imitated, you can report it.

What are the implications of these policies for you?

If your content fits any of the descriptions below, don't post it on Supernova.

Account impersonation: When an account copies the profile, background, or overall look and feel of another account, it appears to be that account. The account does not have to be 100% identical to the other account as long as the intent is clear to copy it.

Personal impersonation: content intended to appear as if it were posted by someone else.

Here are some examples of prohibited content on Supernova:

  • Accounts with the same name and image as another account, with the exception of a space in the name or the letter O being replaced by a zero.
  • Making people believe you are someone else by using their real name, user name, image, brand, logo, or other personal information.
  • Replicating an account's description exactly on another account.
  • Creating an account with a person's name and image, then posing as that person and posting content to the account.
  • Creating an account with a person's name and image, then posting comments on other accounts as if they were made by that person.
  • Accounts that claim to be a "fan account," but are actually impersonating another's and reuploading their content.
  • Accounts that pretend to be a real news account.

Please keep in mind that these are just a few examples, and you should not post content if you believe it violates this policy.

What happens if content is found to be in violation of the policy?

If your content is found to be in violation of this policy, we will remove it and notify you via email. If this is your first violation of our Community Guidelines, you will receive a warning and your account will not be penalised. If it isn't, we'll give your account a warning. Your account will be terminated if you receive three strikes.
