Blend Swap is a big site, and nowadays it is rather hard to keep track of everything happening in comments and messages across the community. This is the Code of Conduct we expect you tu uphold for the good of the community and your account. Failure to comply with these simple rules will result in your account getting audited and even closed permanently.
- Be respectful to your peers:
All users on Blend Swap are equal, regardless of their gender, nationality, religion (or lack thereof), sexual orientation, age, level of expertise with Blender, etc. Report any harrassment directed towards you or any other users. Be solidary and all round awesome with everybody.
- Leave good, helpful comments:
Thank the blend authors any time! that's a gesture everybody appreciates. Criticism is good, but try your best to be polite when criticizing some one else's work; artists have put time and effort in their blends and they share them with love and passion, don't ruin the party by being a dick. If you don't like a model, that's ok, but if you can't give advice for improvements, it's better if you don't say anything and move on.
- Don't feed the trolls:
From time to time a troll will appear on the site, being a total douche and flaming the comment threads. Don't fall to their level and leave similar responses. Report trolls to us the admins ( @poifox , @mofx ) and we'll get rid of them. If you start answering with profanity to a troll we might as well block you too.
- Be respectful to the admins:
We are people, we don't like be told that our service just plain sucks without a good reason, you're not going to get anywhere nice if you flame our email inbox. We are very cool guys if you're cool to us. We will do our best to get the site working for you as fast as we can, but if you are a dick to us you're just getting yourself in trouble.
- Report anything that's not working as expected,
spam comments, trolls, site errors, you guys are our eyes out there, the site is really big now, and we can't get enough time off our day jobs to take care of every little error or detail on it. We will normally solve the problems within minutes of your report (unless we're sleeping or it's a weekend).
We've spent a lot of time writing these pages, so you can get most answers from them. If your question is still not answered write us from the Contact form, you input, questions and feedback are always welcome.
- Enjoy the site.
The Blend Swap Crew.
