General Guidelines

Opporty allows users to contribute different kinds of content, including reviews, photos, offers, requests, responses, private messages, and more. Playing nice isn’t rocket science, but just in case, we’ve put together these general guidelines. Please also read the guidelines below for specific types of content that you might contribute to the site.

Inappropriate content

  • Colorful language and imagery are fine, but there is no need for threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, and other displays of bigotry.

Conflicts of interest

  • Your contributions should be unbiased and objective. For example, you should not write reviews for your own business or employer, your friends’ or relatives’ businesses, your peers or competitors in your industry, or businesses in your networking group.

Promotional content

  • Unless you're using your account to add content to your business's profile page, we generally frown upon promotional content. Let's keep the site useful for consumers and not overrun with commercial noise from every user.


  • Please make sure your contributions are relevant and appropriate to the forum. For example, reviews aren't the place for rants about a business's employment practices, political ideologies, extraordinary circumstances, or other matters that don't address the core of the consumer experience.


  • Don’t publicize other people’s private information. Please don’t post close up photos or videos of other patrons without their permission, and please don’t post other people’s full names unless you are referring to service providers who are commonly identified by or commonly share their own full names.

Intellectual property

  • Don’t swipe content from other sites or users. You’re a smart cookie, so write your own reviews and take your own photos and videos, please!

Describe exactly what you need, or what you are offering. The sharper your message, the more accurate the response from other users.
