Pedoman Komunitas

As an open platform, we’re committed to freedom of expression. You’ll see a range of perspectives here, as all of the petitions on have been created by people in the community. Anyone can use no matter who they are, where they live, and what they believe, as long as they follow simple guidelines to keep our platform safe and open.

This applies to all content you post. “Content” includes, but is not limited to, petitions, updates, comments, photographs, and usernames.

These Community Guidelines, along with our Terms of Service, lay out the rules for using


First, here are few things we love to see you do on

  • Speak out on any issue you want to change
    Tell your personal story when you start a petition — hearing how you are affected by a problem is powerful. Explain the problem, how it impacts you, your family, friends, or community. Then explain the solution and how others can be a part of it. We recognize the need for anonymity in some cases and allow aliases to be used. For example, if you are concerned that using your real name may put your safety, livelihood, or privacy at risk.
  • Choose the right decision maker
    Choose the decision maker who can give you what you want. A decision maker may be a particular person, group, or company, who has the direct ability to fix your problem. Work with them constructively both on and off our platform to come up with solutions.
  • Mobilize your friends, family, and community
    Mobilize your friends, family, and community by sharing your petition to raise awareness. Use the tools on the platform to show your cause to others through social media.
  • Be open to disagreement
    Listen to other people’s opinions. You might disagree strongly with a petition’s content, but change happens when people with different backgrounds and perspectives can participate in a constructive conversation. As long as it complies with these Community Guidelines, all content, no matter how contentious, is allowed on our platform. We see petitions on opposing sides of one issue all the time. It’s one of the many great things about being an open platform. The most effective way to respond to content you disagree with is to start a counter-petition and mobilize others to see your perspective, rather than asking to remove content you don’t like. However, if you believe content you see is not following Community Guidelines, you should report it to us.
  • Update your supporters with developments
    Keep them posted on the highs and lows of your campaign and suggest ways they can take further action online and offline to stay involved.
  • Be kind
    In cases where a petition addresses sensitive themes, please do so in a manner that is compassionate and mindful of the impact on others. Sensitive themes may include mental health, abuse, trauma, and any other topics that could potentially cause distress or trigger adverse reactions in individuals. Content warnings should be used when discussing topics that may be triggering. In some cases, we will restrict or remove content that could cause harm to others.


Here are the things we don’t like to see on, which may force us to remove or restrict content and accounts in line with our policies.

Please report problems

How to report a petition on

If you see content that you believe may violate our Community Guidelines, you can report it by logging-in and clicking the “Report a policy violation” button (below “Reasons for signing”) on petitions, or by writing to us through our email address.


If you come across content on indicating an emergency situation — for example, if a person is in danger — let us know by contacting, but first contact your local emergency services immediately.

Who will review reports?

We have moderators based across the globe to keep our platform and those who use it safe. Once we receive a report, our moderators will review each report under our policies. After their review, our moderators will assess what steps we need to take to address the matter. We ensure to act on reports within 24 hours during working days, unless the report requires further investigation.

What actions might be taken by

  • Removal of content — We will remove content from where violations of the Community Guidelines are found. When we remove a petition from, we will let the petition starter know by contacting them by email. Any promotions made on the petition will be refunded, where the payment methods allow it, and according to our refund policy.
  • Review of petition updates — When we receive complaints or concerns on a petition, new updates may be reviewed on whether they are suitable to be emailed via This does not affect the publication of the update; the update will be seen on the petition page, unless there is a breach of the Community Guidelines, in which case it will be removed.
  • Removal from recommendations — has a number of ways to highlight petitions on the platform and people can “chip in” via Promoted Petitions to have petitions recommended to other people using the platform . Where a petition may pose risk of harm, we may remove the ability for it to be promoted in this way.

Is content pre-moderated on

As an open platform, we do not pre-moderate content that is published on

We have over 70,000 petitions started on our platform each month — a number which continues to grow. To manage that content we use artificial intelligence technology to find content which may not comply with our Community Guidelines. That content is often reviewed by a moderator before action is taken.

Thank you for being a part of, and supporting change in your community. We can’t wait to see what you’ll change next!
