  1. Your Content

    1. Posting Content


HelpTile Inc. is a tool that allows you to point to, share and discover specific pieces of larger things on the Internet. You can manage your tiling activity in your HelpTile Inc. profile, or as you share to your preferred social platform, like Twitter, Pinterest or Facebook, and manage your tiled content there. To make sure people feel safe and comfortable here, we require everyone to agree to and follow these rules.


Different people may have different opinions on how we should enforce these rules. However, these things are rarely black and white—for each tile we have to consider the image, or other content itself, as well as the surrounding context (like its description or the website the tile came from). If there’s a question about whether something’s appropriate for our community, we’ll err on the side of taking it down. Please note the example tiles we show might be disturbing to some people.
