Welcome to Isolated, a living record of how we got through the pandemic

Summary of our rules:
  1. Stay safe
  2. Be respectful of others
  3. Keep to our code of conduct
  4. You don’t have to use your real name
  5. Everything you share belongs to you 
Detailed rules:

    1. Stay safe
      Do NOT put yourself at risk while completing a challenge for Isolated. If you don’t feel comfortable with a challenge, simply don’t respond and wait for the next one, or unsubscribe.


    2. Be respectful of others
      Get people’s permission if they’re identifiable in any way in what you send us, either images or text. If you send photos taken at a protest, blur the faces of anyone who didn’t consent to be included.

    3. Keep to our code of conduct
      We have a code of conduct for all contributions that we expect you to honor. In summary: no insulting, discriminatory, or harassing behavior or speech, no violent, graphic sexual or discriminatory imagery, comments, or ‘jokes’. Also, no impersonation, spamming, rumors, “cures,” conspiracy theories, deliberate fiction that isn’t clearly labeled as such, or anything that can be seen as medical advice. Read more here.

    4. You don’t have to use your real name
      You can be anonymous or use a pseudonym for any or all contributions.

    5. Everything you share belongs to you
      You can create it in response to the challenges, or you can share text/images that you created before, and for which you still own the rights.

      And the copyright stays yours. By participating, all you give us is a non-exclusive license to use what you send us in any Isolated publication – our website, newsletter, social media, print – as long as we credit you.


      You’re granting us the right to reproduce, display, or perform the work you send us, to prepare derivative works based on what you send in, and to distribute the work, as long as it’s in an official Isolated publication.


      Because we want to share some contributions on social media and in our newsletter, you’re also giving us the non-exclusive right to grant to others non-exclusive licenses to use the work you send in, in the context of our sharing or promoting content of Isolated publications.


      For example, if we want to share what you send us on Instagram, their platform terms and conditions may mean that we have to our grant them a non-exclusive license to reproduce the content, in order to post on Instagram.


      You are not giving anyone else permission to take what you send us for any purpose. Your stuff stays yours, and you retain the right to use it or license it to anyone else, however you see fit.
