Inappropriate behavior, including abusive, rudeness, sexist defamatory, obscene, racist or offensive comments, will put you at risk of having your account suspended or terminated.
There’s a fine line between promoting your sounds and spamming. The more you can make your messages and actions personal and relevant, the less likely you are to be reported for spam. Faking your own popularity, or using sounds or comments to promote other products or services can be considered as spam and isn’t welcome on Black Science Fiction Society.

To Sum It Up
Basically, be nice, respect the law and think before you post. In most cases, we'll send you a warning before we take other measures and we'll always try to act reasonably. We think this is fair but if you don't agree, maybe Black Science Fiction Society is not the place for you.
These guidelines have been written down to ensure that everyone within the community has the experience they want. We're not trying to set up rules and regulations for exactly how you should and shouldn't act but rather to make clear that this should be a place of respect between people and a place for responsible content posting. We hope you agree and understand. If you do, don't or have any other questions or comments please in-box the Admin.
We may change these Community Guidelines from time to time, so please be sure to check back here every so often for any updates.
