Usage and content policies: Rules for using Local Fantasy Leagues

Failure to abide by these or multiple abuses can result in termination or suspension of account without refund.
Be Real

Profiles are intended to represent real people in a local area. Fantasy member profiles must be honest and authentic.

Be Honest: Intentions, Affiliations, Transparency

All members should be open about who they are, their intentions, and their affiliations. All group and event descriptions should be accurate, so members can make informed decisions about their participation.

Be Yourself: Fake Accounts & Impersonation

Creating fake accounts, malicious accounts, or accounts meant to impersonate another person, is prohibited on Local Fantasy Leagues.

Be Respectful

Respecting people's time, attention, personal choices, and personal boundaries is essential to creating safe and trusting communities. Be respectful in interactions with people and in content posted on the platform. LFL monitors and restricts behaviors that are dishonest, undermine the integrity of the platform, violate personal boundaries, or serve to intentionally upset people.

Message Respectfully: Don't Spam

Content sent to a member that is irrelevant, impersonal, unsolicited, promotional, or repetitive is spam.

Set Appropriate Expectations and Honor Them: Don't Tamper with Groups or Events

Converting or changing events in a group or event, so that they no longer align with the expectations and purpose set by the organizer and leadership team, is misleading and not allowed.

The intentions of the group should remain consistent with member expectations as set in the group description.


Stepping up as organizer to a LFL group in order to change the focus of the group, to close the group, to send or post promotional content, or to send or post content not aligned with the original description of the group, is prohibited. If it is your intention to change the meaning or purpose of a group, we advise that you start a new group instead. If a group gets a new organizer, the mission of that group should stay the same. Events in a group should reflect intentions expressed in the group description.


Altering the content or settings of a group without permission from the main organizer, or in a way that is not aligned with the purpose of that group, is prohibited. Any use of LFL tools or features to disrupt the group or destroy content for the purpose of undermining or undercutting the established community is a violation of our policies.

Honor Requests for Distance: About Block and Ban Decisions

If you are blocked, you’re blocked. Members must accept and respect any organizer’s decision to ban a member from a group, or a member's decision to block a member from contacting them. Creating new accounts to circumvent block or ban decisions is prohibited.

Sexual Content and Nudity

Pornography is not allowed on LFL. Publicly shared photos must be appropriate for general audiences. Nude or sexual photos are not allowed.


If nudity or sexuality is part of a group's identity or lifestyle, organizers must keep the group Private in order to limit access to this content to members of that group. LFL expects leadership teams to monitor this content.

Sex Solicitation and Prostitution

LFL prohibits groups that, or individuals who, use LFL to proposition for sex, or to promote or engage in prostitution.

Shocking, Disturbing, and Violent Content

Gratuitously graphic, disgusting, obscene, or violent content is prohibited. We don't allow content posted to upset, shock, or disturb LFL community or its members.

Child Exploitation

LFL has a zero tolerance policy regarding child pornography or anything LFL HQ believes exploits, sexualizes, or fetishizes minors. Such content will be removed from the platform and the uploader will be banned. LFL reports all child pornography to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

Ask for Permission: Consent

LFL defines consent as welcomed communications and actions to engage with a member. Engaging with anyone in a non-consensual way is strictly prohibited. If ever in doubt, ask permission.

Respect Privacy: Don't Post Other People's Private Information

Posting other people's private information without their explicit consent is prohibited. …

Members and organizers should always be mindful of privacy and use discretion when sharing any private content that belongs to themselves or to other members. For example, phone numbers, social security numbers, addresses, financial information, passwords, and government identification are considered private information.

Be Kind

Bullying, harassment, exploitation, and acts of hate undermine community building in safe spaces where people can trust one another. Building real relationships requires us to be more compassionate and kinder towards one another. LFL enforces against behaviors that are threatening, intentionally malicious, or personally harmful--physically, emotionally, or mentally.

Be Compassionate: Don't Harass, Bully or Shame

Harassment and bullying are not allowed on LFL. LFL will honor requests to remove content that publicly shames or degrades a private individual.

Harassment is persistent or non-consensual contact from another member. Bullying is the intentional posting of mean content for the purpose of hurting or embarrassing another.

LFL will honor requests to remove nude, lewd or shaming photos if the subject of that content reports it. Content targeting a public figure, organization, or anyone who has gained news attention, is not subject to these policies.

Act with Integrity: Do Not Manipulate or Exploit

Any attempt to use someone's insecurities or vulnerabilities for personal gain is considered manipulation or exploitation and is prohibited.

Hate and Supremacy

Hate speech, supremacy, or behavior that incites hate or violence against individuals or groups of people based on who they are or their beliefs, is prohibited.

Be Safe

All organizers and members should take ownership over their personal safety and should never put themselves or others in danger. We expect all organizers and members to be mindful of local laws when engaging with their groups. Where appropriate, organizers should also set guidelines for their events to ensure their members are participating safely.

No Threats, Violence, or Personal Endangerment

Using LFL to promote, facilitate, or organize violent, criminal, or non-consensual actions that endanger anyone, physically, mentally, or emotionally, is prohibited.

LFL reserves the right to remove credible explicit and implicit threats of violence or aggression and revoke the membership of the user who made them. Examples of prohibited implicit threats include, “The next time I see you, you’ll be sorry.” and “You better watch your back.”

Harmful Misinformation

The dissemination or promotion of misinformation is prohibited. This includes claims that have been scientifically disproven and that may pose a public or personal health risk.


LFL does not allow any content that encourages or glorifies self-injury or encourages others to harm themselves.

Copyright and IP

Intellectual Property

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. Posting content that violates another party's intellectual property rights is prohibited.

When provided with the requisite information, LFL will remove or disable access to material that infringes on the intellectual property rights of others or remove accounts of those who may be repeat infringers. Please note that simply hosting an event around a similar topic in a shared location is generally not considered a violation of our policies.
