Replit's Community Standards

The Replit Team

Welcome to the Replit Community!

While you're here, please help us keep this community safe, supportive, and creative by adhering to our Community Values and Standards.

Community Values

Empower others. Replit is for everyone, and everyone starts somewhere. Be patient and inclusive - things that are simple for you may be hard for others. We have absolute beginners and coding experts on our platform, and we want everyone to feel at home here.

Support one other. As part of the Replit Community, we hope you'll share your wins so other members can celebrate you and that you'll return the favor by supporting other users' work.

Be kind. There is no place for hate in our community. Respect each other, use appropriate language, and be kind. Be positive, and always be sure to reinforce that coding on Replit is a fun and friendly experience.

Community Standards

Replit is for everyone. To ensure that everyone feels welcome and safe here, we require all users to agree to our Community Standards

Be Kind

All kinds of coders are building on Replit!

Our community is a great place to offer support, ask questions, share ideas, help a new user, geek out about a shared interest, or provide constructive feedback!

Our community is not the place to be mean or sarcastic about someone's programming skills or project. If you see anyone bullying or spamming others in the comments, you should report them.

Comments, posts, or Repls that go against this standard will be removed from Community and the users will be issued a warning or removed from the community.

Keep it appropriate

Content that makes other community members feel uncomfortable or unwelcome such as swearing, nudity, violence, or graphic content is strictly disallowed.

Any form of content that is found violating this rule will be removed from the community and the creator of such content will either be warned or banned from the community.

No bullying

There is no place for hate in our community. Respect each other, use appropriate language, and be kind. We do not tolerate targeting any person or group of people for any reason whatsoever. Any abusive or threatening writing that expresses prejudice against a particular group, especially based on race, religion, or sexual orientation goes against our community standards.

We remove any comment, post, or Repl containing hate speech from our Community and ban the offending users (after which they can appeal, more details about this at the end).

No advertising or spamming

We hope all of our users will become dazzlingly wealthy someday, but please don't advertise your wares by sharing links or spamming in comments or posts unless you have specific permission from the author of the post's author.

We remove comments and posts like this and issue a warning to the offending users. After a second warning, the users will be permanently banned from the Community.

No illegal or regulated content

Please don't use Replit to promote or engage in any illegal activity, even unintentionally. This includes dealing in drugs, sex, gambling, weapons, or pirated software.

Don't misuse the service

Do not share content that can harm other users, such as spam, malware, or phishing. We also don't allow Repls that consume too many resources, such as spam bots and cryptocurrency miners. Making multiple copies of the same Repl to run in parallel is also counted as a misuse of resources.


Everyone can and should code, but Replit is only available to users above the age of 13. This is due to COPPA regulations.

Any users presumed to be under the age of 13 will be temporarily banned from Replit and can appeal by offering proof of their age.

Some other things to remember

  • Plagiarism: Give credit and don't plagiarize code. Be sure to give a friendly shout-out to the creators whose ideas and code helped you build your project. They'll appreciate it and you'll appreciate it too when your turn for a shout-out rolls around.
  • Homework help: We encourage users not to request or provide complete answers to homework assignments, but only to provide general tips, pointers, and minor debugging.
  • Automated actions: Please do not create bots to perform actions on Replit such as commenting, running, liking, or following, without obtaining permission first.
  • Licensing: When importing code from Github, please check that its license permits you to do so. Unless the code is MIT licensed, you may need the author’s permission.
  • Comment spam: Avoid spamming users by mentioning them in your posts or comments, especially if they have nothing to do with them.

Our Community Standards are based in part on Replit's Terms of Service, which are a more detailed legal document that everyone must follow anytime they use the site.
