Following are some of the common conditions adopted by Needs.do for acceptance or rejection of needs posted within the system.

  1. Looking for suggestion to home school my Autistic child.
  2. A party place to celebrate my daughter's birthday in Dallas, TX
  3. We need a good handyman in Fremont, CA areas
Always understand that a need is not a choice question. Neither should it be a question about what the responders do in their personal life. A need should be more about the person who asks than the person who responds. We do not consider the following type of needs as genuine and our team will flag them.
  1. What do you like Option A or Option B, where these options are silly like two colors?
  2. What did you have for breakfast?
  3. Can you send me some money, points, bitcoin etc.
Following are some general rules to be followed:
  1. All needs should be in English language

  8. Strictly no sexual, drug or violence related content
  9. No racial, political or antagonizing
Needs that do not adhere to our terms and standards will be flagged. Flagged needs will have a negative impact on points/dollars you earned.

All decisions are final, Needs.do Inc. reserve rights to refuse service to anyone for reasons whatever they think is appropriate.
