Respect all users.

We are a diverse society with diverse members. All people should be respected regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identification, disability, or physical appearance. We want to foster a tolerant and inclusive membership, and will not tolerate trolling, bullying, intimidation or intentionally inflammatory comments. In fact, we won’t tolerate any inflammatory comments, intentional or not. We encourage our users to report any antisocial behaviour, and will take appropriate action. This may include blocking users from Piper.

Only post your own photos.

Don’t pretend you’re somebody you aren’t. Also, don’t make a photo of your child / children, your main profile photo. Or your dog. Or cat. Or car. Or mountain bike. (You get the idea….) We want to ensure members are fully transparent with each other, and this includes identifying yourself clearly to other users. It should also go without saying that the photos you post should not be underwear selfies, or pornographic in nature, but just in case, we’re saying it.

Be as informative as you can when setting up your profile.

The more you say about yourself, the more likely you are to make a connection with somebody who’s like-minded and has the same goals as you when it comes to getting out and about. Try and think about what might be relevant to prospective matches. Do you want to take your children or dog when you’re walking? This might encourage others with children or a dog to connect with you. Are you flexible with your time or restricted by work, childcare arrangements or other commitments? If you’re new to the area, what else might you be interested in other than outdoor activities?
