To support our efforts to make MV a safe space for all users, external links / URLs and text mentions to other adult sites are not permitted. Watermarks in vids uploaded from February 20, 2021 onward that display links to other adult sites are also not permitted. ManyVids cannot risk hosting links to other websites that may not hold the same standards for Trust & Safety as we do. As social media platforms are designed for self-expression, MV Stars are permitted to link their Twitter and their Instagram in their Social Media settings.
Please note: As of May 18th, we will be applying our external link policy. We will no longer permit any non-ManyVids URLs or links in the following areas of the platform:
- About Me
- FanClub (free) Posts
The MV Team will be taking action to remove any mentions of external links from the site in the sections listed above. Additionally, from May 18th MV Stars will also no longer be able to add any external links to the areas mentioned.
