What are your guidelines for sharing on the Forum?

OLIO is all about sharing, community and the power of small actions. Here are some guidelines to keep our community the positive, friendly and productive place we want it to be:

  • If you wouldn’t say something in real life, or wouldn’t want to see it printed in a newspaper with your name attached to it, then please don’t say it on OLIO!
  • Please be polite and respectful to other users. We have absolutely zero tolerance for any behaviour that is rude, offensive, inflammatory or incites hatred of any kind whatsoever.
  • Please ensure that all posts remain ‘on topic’. OLIO welcomes posts that fall into the categories provided on the ‘Add Post’ page and shown below
  • Any advertising or discount codes will be taken down – unless it is for zero waste or sustainable living products, and the post does not feel ‘spammy’. Any general community posts (e.g. lost cats, requests for plumber recommendations, asking for babysitters/dog walkers) will be taken down. We recommend local Facebook groups or Nextdoor for these conversations.
