THE NICE STUFF

Things to do

Play nice

We’re a global community of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable and who may not think what you think, believe what you believe, or see what you see. So, be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members.

Upload Content

Respect the copyright of others by linking back to the source site. Upload content that you have created.  This means don’t steal photos, videos or content that other people have created and pass them off as your own.

Enjoy CROWDEEZE!

This is your community. Celebrate your investment in bringing content to the website, be social and share what’s important to you. See the world through others’ eyes, participate, inform, educate, entertain, inspire and expand your horizons!

Things not to do

Here’s the deal: We like to give second chances. However, when we discover you stepping across any of the lines listed below, we will take action, which may mean deleting your account with or without warning.

Content

Follow the content rules in the Terms of Use and Privacy Policies

Don’t forget the children.

Please ensure that you monitor the use of this website by your children.

Don’t upload content that is illegal or prohibited.

If we find you doing that, your account will be deleted and we’ll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities.

Don’t vent your frustrations, rant, or bore the brains out of other members.

CROWDEEZE is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we’ll send you a warning or delete your account.

Don’t spam

We don’t tolerate spam, deceptive tagging, deceptive content titles and descriptions, resource abuse, or other abusive means to generate revenue and traffic to your website or elsewhere. Don’t know what we mean by spam? Check out Yahoo’s Anti-Spam policy and Terms of Service.

Don’t use CROWDEEZE for unauthorized commercial activity.

Oh, and one more thing:

Copyright Infringement.

If you see content that you’ve created but didn’t post on our website, don’t panic. This is probably just a misunderstanding and not malicious. Please contact us and we will investigate

You may be tempted to post a comment about what’s happening, but that’s not the best way to resolve a possible copyright problem. We don’t encourage singling out individuals like this on CROWDEEZE as it could be seen as harassment which is against our guidelines.

In Conclusion

If you don’t feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe CROWDEEZE isn’t for you. We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the SLIDETREE community benefits from the content and has a good time.
