Community Standards

First and foremost, be kind to one another. The Foresight Engine is a forum for individuals to express their hopes, concerns, and personal predictions about the future. In order to ensure that it remains a community that is welcoming and open to everyone, we ask that everyone follow these community norms:


  • Hate Speech
  • Sexually Explicit or Graphic Content
  • Violence or Threats
  • Bullying or Harassment

The Foresight Engine is a place for your imagination to run wild. While we invite you to challenge existing norms, institutions, practices, services, and more, we do not permit discrimination against groups or individuals based on sexual orientation, gender, race, ethnicity, disability, medical condition, national origin, legal status, or religion.

We reserve the right to remove any content that violates these standards. We encourage participants to report inappropriate behavior by clicking the flag icon on any card. Please note that this will send the card to a moderator for review but does not guarantee that it will be removed from the site.

We May Quote You
