Social Stream Public Posts, Site Members Only Posts, Friends Only Posts, and Me Only Posts:
Within the social-media stream YOU'sers are allowed to make posts, comments, status changes which include text, video, and photo options. These posts have options as to who may see these posts and various conduct levels are in place for different areas. 

Public Posts, Site Members Only, Settings: Any status posted with a Public setting is monitored to include common area type of posts and conduct. No obscene, violently graphic, nude, sexually suggesting, abusive in nature, pornographic, adult-rated material or illegal content as described by law will be allowed. These posts are viewable by any other YOU'ser on the site. Such posts will be reportable and removed if found to be in violation of Public and Site Members viewership. Site overrides of viewable content is heaviest in the Public and Site Members Only status'. Such posts are removed by Admin as they are not acceptable in a public setting.

Friends Only While only select people of who you have chosen to see your content will see the content, the strong recommendation of scrutiny is advised as to the content and nature of your posts. Less site overrides for content occurs on Friends Only posts Notwithstanding, illegal content as defined by law is still not permissible. It is the belief of Dragonize that our YOU'sers know their friends better than we do. Offensive posts are not "illegal" by law, and the suggested practice by Dragonize is to Unfollow a YOU'ser who may post content your opinion finds offensive, Unfriend a YOU'ser who often posts your opinion finds offensive, and if necessary Block a YOU'ser who posts regular content your opinion considers offensive. 

Me Only. Such posts receive little to no override scrutiny. They are private to you and you only. Under the event a Me Only post is edited to become available to  Friends Only, Public, or Site Members, then the other post setting overrides will commence accordingly.

 

Groups, and Group Settings
Groups are creatable by YOU'sers of the site. These groups serve for a niche of interest that differs from that of their personal account for friends and family. Different group types will receive different override criteria. 

Open Groups: Allow YOU'sers to openly see and join follow the same override scrutiny as Public and Site Member Only Posts. They are available for all site YOU'sers to see as an open group.

Closed Groups: follow the Friends Only override scrutiny criteria. Closed groups only have members who have accepted a Join Invitation, or have sent a Join Invitation to the group and they accepted. This is the same procedure as having friends accepting requests for content to be viewable to those YOU'sers.

Closed & Hidden Groups: Recieve little to no override scrutiny. YOU'sers within these groups have been sent a Join Request and accepted as the only way to be in the group, little need to override these groups is necessary. These Groups are not visible by members even if they perform a search for the group. If Groups do exceed your opinion of tolerance the following procedure of leaving the Group is recommended. 

Alias Pages
Alias Pages are Open to the public at all times to all YOU'sers. Therefore, will receive the same override scrutiny as Public and Site Members types of posts.
