GamersPin is a place to discover and save creative ideas. To make sure people feel safe and comfortable here, we require everyone to agree to and follow these rules.

People may have different opinions on what our rules should be, so we’ve included example Pins to help show where we draw the line with our policies. However, these things are rarely black and white—for each Pin we have to consider the image itself, as well as the surrounding context (like its description or the website it came from). We’ll do our best to consider the context and interpret the Pin objectively.

If you come across a Pin that seems to break these rules, you can report it to us. Our team will take a look and remove it.  that is if it breaks the game genre that we are delivering here.  Other and Misc. can be used through conduits like Instagram to cover gaming events etc… that is in tone with gaming.

Stuff you can’t post

You aren’t allowed to post anything that:

  • Is sexually explicit or pornographic, exploits or presents minors in a sexual way, or promotes adult sexual services. A boob or two in gaming is normal for pins so this is ok.  Going to far as to show intercourse and hard sex scenes will not be allowed, period.   This is not a porn site it is a gamer site but artistic flavor is more than welcome.
  • Creates a genuine risk of physical injury or property damage, credibly threatens people or public safety, or organizes or encourages harm
  • Promotes self-harm, eating disorders or hard drug abuse
  • Attacks, bullies or harasses nonpublic people

  • Use off-domain redirects for third party tracking
  • Use affiliate links that create a confusing experience for Pinners. Our systems will block most affiliate links, so your Pin’s landing page won’t load
