We're not asking for the kind of respect reserved for the elderly or your mom. We mean don't abuse the site. Every cool new community feature on Six Second Reviews involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and users respect that trust. Please be one of them.
Don't Cross the Line
Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble:
Six Second Reviews is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your audio/video, even if it's audio/video of yourself, don't pass it on.
Don't post audio/videos demonstrating bad stuff like animal abuse, drug abuse, or under-age drinking and smoking.
Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your audio/video shows/demonstrates someone being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don't post it.
Respect copyright. Only upload audio/videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means don't upload audio/videos you didn't make, or use content in your audio/videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations.
We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a person or group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).
Everyone hates spam. Don’t create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views. It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
Please take these rules seriously.
We Enforce These Guidelines
Six Second Reviews staff review uploaded audio/video and flagged audio/video 24 hours a day, seven days a week to determine whether they violate our Community Guidelines. When they do, we remove them. Sometimes audio/video doesn’t violate our Community Guidelines, but may not be appropriate for everyone. We reserve the right to remove any uploaded audio/video for any reason at any time. These audio/videos may be age-restricted. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If your account is terminated, you won’t be allowed to create any new accounts.

Community Guideline Tips
Want a little more insight into the limits and exceptions in the Community Guidelines? Here are some helpful examples and tips:
Generally if audio/video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for Six Second Reviews.
"Hate speech" refers to content that promotes hatred against members of a protected group. For instance, racist or sexist content may be considered hate speech. Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation, but not okay to make insulting generalizations about people of a particular nationality.
Shocking and Disgusting
It’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If audio/video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it will be removed.
When you create something original, you own the copyright for it. Likewise, when other people create content, they may have a copyright to it. As a creative community, it’s essential that everyone on Six Second Reviews respect the copyrights of others. If you’re not sure if something will violate someone’s copyright, the safest thing to do is to create something completely original, with images and audio/video you’ve created or using our approved, downloadable sound beds. If it’s all yours or we’ve offered it for downloading, you never have to worry about copyright. If you’ve recorded something from a DVD, videotaped your TV screen, or downloaded a video online, don’t post it unless you have permission.
If audio/video you've recorded features people who are readily identifiable and who haven't consented to being filmed or recorded, there's a chance they'll file a privacy complaint seeking its removal. We'll notify you if that happens and give you a chance to edit and re-upload your audio/video before we act on the complaint. If we do remove your audio/video for privacy reasons, don't upload another version featuring the same people. Chances are those people will file another privacy complaint or report you for harassment. Don't post other people's personal information, including phone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, and government IDs. We're serious about keeping our users safe and suspend accounts that violate people's privacy.
It comes down to respect. Six Second Reviews is all about sharing and interacting with the community in respectful ways. If you're not sure whether a video/audio or comment you've made crosses the line, follow a simple rule of thumb: if you don’t think it would pass our policies, it probably wont so don't say it on Six Second Reviews. And if you're looking to attack, harass, demean others, go elsewhere.
