Nextdoor Guidelines for Neighbourly Behaviour

Treat everyone with respect

  • Assume good intentions in others and give them the benefit of the doubt.

  • Disagree without being disagreeable; focus on issues and do not engage in personal attacks.

  • Practice moderation and do not over post in a way that dominates conversations.

  • Send private messages or post to a Group when a limited audience is more appropriate.

  • Refrain from profanity or posting messages that will be perceived as discriminatory or profiling.

Share helpful information

  • Answer fellow members’ questions.

  • Share information about crime and safety issues.

  • Recommend local businesses and services (without spamming or inappropriate self-promotion).

  • Sell, share, or give away personal items that you no longer want or need.

  • Discuss community issues

  • Spread the word about local events.

  • Provide support to fellow members in need.

  • Honestly represent yourself

  • Use your real name, not an alias, pseudonym, or abbreviation.
