We encourage everyone to join the community of free expression and commentary by using the Scener™ service. We have created services to offer our users a wide range of community building functionalities. We hope that you enjoy Scener!
Users may contribute to the Service through text, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, comments and other materials (“Content”) which you may view or access through the Service.
Your Content is completely private until you click “Publish.” Even if you do not make your Content public you can still share your Content through a link to friends and family. Be aware that anyone with a link can view your Content. If you want to share your Content with all Scener users select “Public” option. When you contribute Content, you can help your viewers know what to expect with the labels “Spoilers” and “Explicit.” We also may review and label your Content.
Where available, you can encourage creative, insightful, and funny Content by clicking on “Smart” for a particular item of Content. The more “Smart” clicks a particular item of Content gets, the higher up that Content will appear in our website, so go ahead!
Where available, you may also report Content by clicking on the “Troll” button above that Content. If enough users report Content the Content will be automatically removed from Scener. We may review the removed Content to confirm whether it violates these Community Guidelines and may, at our discretion, restore Content. We also have discretion to remove Content that we think violate these Community Guidelines.
Content must comply with all applicable federal, state, local and international laws and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, Content must not:
