Community

To ensure that readers, authors, and musicians can experience the future of reading in a friendly, fun, constructive environment, here are a few dos and don’ts: 

Do

  • Respect others
 Booktrack users are a diverse group with lots of different opinions and perspectives, and that's the way we like it. It also means that everybody needs to be tolerant and respectful of people whose ideas are different from their own. Of course, if someone’s behavior becomes flagrantly offensive, defamatory, abusive, or otherwise contrary to our Terms of Use, let us know.

  • Create, upload, and share your work 
Booktrack enables you to express yourself to readers across the world like never before. Be creative, be expressive, but remember – only share content that you have created yourself and have permission to share. If you’re not sure whether you should upload something, check out our Terms of Use.

  • Criticize constructively 
Providing and receiving useful feedback is essential to creating a collaborative community. Just make sure you’re contributing something meaningful. Constructive critiques: good. Spiteful attacks: not so much.

  • Follow the rules
 We’re serious about making Booktrack a positive, sociable, and responsible creative space. Please help us out by flagging any inappropriate content you see. We will remove any inappropriate content and deal with the offending parties. In most cases, we'll send a warning before taking other measures. Repeat offenders will have their accounts deleted. 

 

Don't

  • Upload things that aren't yours to upload
 Uploading and sharing means you are 100% certain that you are the creator of what you’re uploading, or have permission from all relevant rights holders. Anyone who uploads other people’s content risks having their account suspended or terminated. If you have any questions, see our Terms of Use.

  • Use someone else’s name
 Booktrack usernames are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please don’t register accounts in the name of another person or use someone else’s trademark, even as a tribute. If someone is impersonating you on Booktrack, or is infringing your trademark, please let us know.

  • Troll 
The Booktrack community is a friendly, welcoming, social place. Inappropriate behavior—including abusive, defamatory, obscene, racist, or offensive comments—may result in your account being suspended or terminated.

  • Spam
 There’s a fine line between promoting your work and spamming. The more personal and relevant your messages and actions are, the less likely they’ll be reported as spam. Faking your own popularity or using Booktrack to promote other products or services can be considered spamming, so don’t.

 

In a Nutshell

Basically: be nice, respect the law, and think before you post. We'll always try to be reasonable and fair to all community members. 

These guidelines have been written down to make clear that this is a place of respect, creativity, responsibility, and sharing. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please let us know.

We may change these Community Guidelines from time to time, so please be sure to check back here every so often for any updates.
