"What information of mine is revealed to others?"
When you create a 'PRIVATE page', only your name is affixed. This is for your benefit, that of those you wish to network or share your private page with and to maintaining integrity with the site. ...Professional Pages can display office information but no personal information. ...As for feedback on the pages themselves, only your username will display in 'comments'. Privacy is a key component of enabling people to freely and powerfully Stand And Unite.

First, realize that there are two types of public pages that get displayed to your communities, that you can create. For pages 'of your own', the 6 types are 'Stands, Public Service Member, Group, Organization, Business and Public Figure.
"What is 'page Scope'?"
Every public page gets a page scope when created, which determines who it gets displayed to. The four scopes are Worldwide, Countrywide, Statewide and City/townwide. Each with stands, groups, businesses, organizations, public servants and public figures relevant to your 4 locales, which you set during registration.
"Can I create pages in any/all page scopes?"
Yes, absolutely. It's encouraged. Especially for those groups and organizations that have a positive vision for the world.
"What public pages are displayed to me?"
By default those pages relevant to your specific communities (your city/town, county, state, country and worldwide) are the ones that will be displayed to you, which you can then filter by 'page type'. You can also search for any page through the FIND tab.
"Why can't I create a Public Page for a group, organization, business or public figure THAT ISN'T ME?"
To reserve it as an official page. ...If you have something to say for or against a business, group, public figure or organization, you can 'Find' a page or create a new Stand page, to gain support around.
"What's the difference between (and why) a page 'of my own' and 'for the people'?"
Page Creation Question #2 is to further maintain integrity in the community. There is no page owner who can edit the page long term (30 minute window) or message Standees. With the multitude of feedback options at your finger tips, we thought it important to be able to create a Stand that couldn't be edited.
"Why can I only create an 'Elected, Public Servant' page that isn't me, and not one for 'Appointed or Hired Public Servants?"
One step at a time, let's create a page for all of your local, elected public servants first. You can always create a Stand page if you want to support or protest a specific public servant in your communities. ...All public servants are encouraged to create an official page of their own.
"So what can I do with a page 'of my own'."
Mainly, you can edit most all of it, declare what you/the page Stands for, and message all of the Standees who 'Stand With' your page.
"How many pages can I create and where do I access them?"
Currently you can create unlimited number of pages. Here are the Community Guidelines . (Please keep your pages ethical and beneficial.) All of your private and public pages are right on your dashboard when you log in.
"Can a page be reported?"
Yes. What's more effective, is using StandAndUnite features against it. You can choose to 'Stand Against' it on its page or 'create a page' for standing against it. And there's also the newest feature of being able to HIDE the page so that you never see it again.
"Can 'elected public servants' take control of their page once a page has already been created for them?"
Yes. They can contact admin to verify their contact information and take control. If they get in before the deadline, they will have free messaging capabilities. After the deadline, a networking fee will apply. The fee will depend on the page scope level and the size of the network already built for them.
"I want to create a 'Public Servant' page to challenge one of my current public servants. Is there a cost?"
Currently, there is not a fee. You have full editing and messaging capabilities.
"What is 'My links'?"
As you'll see, every page has a link section, which is great when you want to either share or find a useful link dealing with a specific page topic (search in 'Find Pages'). What's even better, is that you can collect and compile hundreds and thousands of links for your own keeping. Simply click 'add link' next to any link on a page and it will be added to your My Links tab. You can also enter a link directly into 'My Links', buts it's encouraged to post it to a relevant page first, so that others can benefit, too. And soon, you'll have a nice organizational system to categorize them all for easy future reference.
"What is 'Hiding pages and ads'?"
These are newly added features that will allow you to keep your StandAndUnite experience fresh and relevant. Hide those that you no longer want to see and it will be replaced with a new one. The goal is to allow you to determine your StandAndUnite environment and focus.
"What are my feedback options on a page?"
You can Stand With, Against or be Undecided with the page itself. You can comment, add links, protest/boycott/impeach (and soon, 'Character' and 'Bill of Rights' rating). You also have individual feedback options on comments, Stands, allegations and links. This is as 'bottom up' as it gets.
"Can I share to social media?"
Yes. In addition to sharing Stand With/Against/Undecided, you can also share individual Stands, Comments, Impeach/boycott allegations and links. The power to make a difference is in your hands.
"That's a lot of pages and feedback. How do I keep track of it all?"
Soon, in addition to the 'My Public Servants' and My Links', you'll also have a filter for all of the pages you like, stand with, stand against. As well as, a filter for your impeachment, boycott and protest votes. And for the pages you've hidden.
"How do I get my page to display in an ad space and how much does it cost."
Currently, all public pages get cycled through the ad spaces that are relevant to its page scope. ...Only pages created for your town, your county (public servant pages only), your state and your country will be displayed to you. As of now, this is a complimentary incentive to encourage early page creation. It will eventually be a paid service.
"Does StandAndUnite display 3rd party ads?"
The goal is to never need to. The purpose of StandAndUnite is to help you create and build powerful networks for change. Not having 3rd party ads will help achieve that.
"Why is there no mention of political party affiliation?"
This is in order to keep the focus on judging public service members and candidates honestly; through their actions, words and character, rather than their party affiliation.
