When you use Variasi, you join a community of people from all over the world. Community feature on Variasi involves a certain level of trust. Millions of users respect that trust and we trust you to be responsible too. Following the guidelines below helps to keep Variasi a fun and exciting platform for everyone.

Our staff carefully reviews spammed content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to determine whether there’s a violation of our Community Guidelines.
Here are some common-sense rules that will help you stay out of trouble. Please take these rules seriously and take them to your heart. Don’t try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines. We create them with a purpose – to serve you the Best Experience as we could. Please understand and respect them.
Nudity or sexual content
Variasi is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your content, even if it’s a photo of yourself, don’t post it on Variasi. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
Harmful or dangerous content
Don’t post any content that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially kids. Videos showing such harmful or dangerous act may get age-restricted or removed depending on their severity.
Our products are platforms for free expression and creativity. But we don’t support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack a protected group, the content crosses the line.
Violent or graphic content
We truly not allow anyone to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intented to be shocking, sensational, or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news or documentary context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on in the content. Don’t encourage other to commit specific acts of violence.

Please avoid posting an abusive videos and comments on Variasi. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should be ignored.
Spam, misleading metadata, and scams
Everyone hates spam. It’s really inappropriate to create misleading title or descriptions, hashtags, or featured image in order to increase views. It’s not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
We appreciate creativity but please respect copyright. Only upload contents that you made or that you’re authorized to use. This means don’t upload photos and videos you didn’t make, or use content in your post that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or contents made by other users, without necessary authorizations. If we detected that you are doing this, or received any complaints from other users, we may remove your content immediately or give you a warning about it so that you can take it down by yourself.
