WHIRL FAQ and How To’s

Community Participation:

We encourage members to participate in community, whether it’s posting a new activity, or interacting with other activity updates. All voices FOR our nation matter and are not censored, nor do we promote one activity over another. Whatever members choose to like, share or interact with more, will be their choice, unlike a couple of other social media sites, which endorse and promote propaganda, including from everything our nation has fought against.

Certain community members have a verified account status. Here’s a list of verified statuses you may see while interacting with others.
