The following Community Guidelines are here to help you understand what it means to be a member of www.GetMedia.org.uk and to ensure that all members have a good time here. Don’t forget that your use of www.GetMedia.org.uk is also subject to our Terms of Service.

Do’s

  • Always be nice

    There’s a lot of different people here with a lot of different opinions and views. That’s great but it also means that everybody should have a high level of tolerance and be nice to people with ideas that are different than their own.

  • Share content that you own the rights to

    Always respect the rights holders of a piece of media and never ever share media that you don’t own the rights to, period. If you suspect somebody of breaking the rules please report it right away to us at hello@getmedia.org.uk.

  • Criticize, but do it constructively

    Criticism is really good for pushing things forward and making things better. So, please constructively share your opinion so that good things can come out of it. As much as constructive criticism can make things better, unconstructive criticism makes things worse. Always think for a second before posting critique, “Would I appreciate receiving the same comment?”.

Don’ts

  • Upload things that aren’t yours to upload

    This of course means media files (audio / video) but also texts & images that you might have found around the web. Uploading and sharing means you should always be certain that you are the creator of what you’re uploading OR THEIR AGENT has given you permission TO share.

  • Share content without the consent of the proper right holders

    Any user sharing content illegally runs the risk of having their GetMedia account deleted and being reported to the relevant authorities. GetMedia makes it easy for people to share & receive media files, please help us in making sure it’s all legal.

  • Rant, flame, troll, spam or be an asshole

    GetMedia is a social place but it’s not the place for you to act out rage from other parts of your life. Don’t let a personal issue strain the rest of the community. Inappropriate¬†behaviour¬†will put you in risk of having your account deleted. Please do not link to e-commerce, business and unrelated sites. We consider this spam and nobody really likes spam.

To Sum It Up

Basically, be nice, follow 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 be reasonable. However, if you don’t feel these guidelines are appropriate, maybe GetMedia is not 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 make clear that this should be a place of respect between people and responsible content posting. We hope you agree and understand. If you do, don’t or have any other questions or comments please¬†let us know.
