MEMBER GUIDELINES

Thanks for joining Onyx Black Wealth Collective, a space where members come together to build and retain generational wealth within the Black community. In order for that to happen, we each need to engage with the Onyx community in a constructive manner. For more on what that means, check out the additional details provided below, or our Member Guidelines Overview

Be Trustworthy

One of the best parts of Onyx is learning from one another, and folks will want to know who they’re sharing their personal stories with. Please use your true identity within our community, and provide accurate information about yourself and/or your organization. 

  • Do not create fake profiles or entities.
  • Do not use an image of someone else, or any other image that is not your likeness, for your profile photo.
  • Do not post misleading or deceptive information about yourself, your business, your qualifications, work experience, affiliations, or achievements. 
  • Do not associate yourself with businesses or organizations you are not actually professionally associated with.
  • Do not attempt to scam, defraud, deceive others. Do not use Onyx to facilitate romance scams, promote pyramid schemes, or otherwise defraud members.
  • Do not share content or endorsements in exchange for personal benefit (including personal or family relationships, monetary payment, free products or services, or other value) unless you have included a clear and conspicuous notice of the personal benefit you receive.

Be respectful

Onyx’s mission is to build wealth in Black and diverse communities. We welcome conversations about a broad array of wealth building and other financial matters, but please express yourselves in a respectful manner. 

  • Do not share content that attacks, denigrates, intimidates, dehumanizes, incites or threatens hatred, violence, prejudicial or discriminatory action against individuals or groups because of their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, age, or disability status
  • Do not engage in disruptive behaviors (e.g. impersonating others, revealing another person’s private information, bullying, harassment). Do not direct abusive language toward fellow members (e.g. bullying, harassment) or other disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Do not promote or attempt to sell goods or services. 
  • Do not send promotional messages to people you don’t know or otherwise spam the online community. 

Be professional 

  • This is not a dating site, so please do not attempt to pursue romantic connections or provide commentary on someone’s appearance or perceived attractiveness. 
  • Do not share material depicting nudity or sexual activity or send unwanted advances in messages, posts, or comments.
  • We don’t allow untargeted, irrelevant, obviously unwanted, unauthorized, inappropriately commercial or promotional, or gratuitously repetitive messages or similar content.

Flag abusive content

If you see offensive content or other activity that you believe violates community guidelines, please report it to us. It’s impossible to monitor every single profile, post, message, and comment, so we’re counting on your help to identify and prevent abuse. Please use reporting tools responsibly and only for their intended purposes. Together we can cultivate a space where everyone is able to share, grow, and learn from one another.

Note: Violating Onyx Black Wealth Collective community policies can result in a range of actions, from limiting your ability to engage with the community to removal of your account.
