Rules and tips for being a good team player in the community.
Own your work
I will upload only work that I’ve created. I won’t upload work that I haven’t created (unless rebounding a fellow player, where attribution is clear).
Don't post inappropriate content
Dribbble aspires to be a welcoming and inclusive community. Therefore I will not post content that is:
- Pornographic, or contains nudity or mature content
- Racist, sexist, or otherwise offensive
- Gratuitously or overly sexual
- Shockingly graphic, grotesque, or obscene
- Inflammatory (e.g. name-calling, preaching, ranting, stirring up controversy, or venting frustrations)
I realize that if I do, it may be removed by Dribbble per our Terms of Service. I also accept that Dribbble has final say over whether content is appropriate. I understand that if I repost content that’s been removed or continue to post content that violates these guidelines my account may be suspended or removed.
No spam allowed
Dribbble provides many features that allow users to interact with one-another. I will not use these tools to indiscriminately send unsolicited messages to other users. Furthermore, I will not a abuse Dribbble to generate attention to my profile or shots, which includes using deceptive shot metadata or abusing social gestures, including likes and comments. I understand that abusing these tools may result in account suspension or removal.
Give due credit
I’ll link back to Dribbble when posting Dribbble content elsewhere.
I welcome constructive criticism of my work. When providing criticism to others, I'll be helpful, not mean.
Dribbble is a place for show and tell. Your work need not be finished or polished, but strive to make it interesting and relevant to the community.
Tag your shots
There are tens of thousands of searches by tag every day. Tags are a great way of allowing other members to find your work by category. Don’t forget to tag.
Add your location to your profile
Let the community know where you’re from and get discovered by others in your area. Our location search makes it easy to find members in every corner of the world.
Add skills to your profile
Help people find you by your areas of expertise.
Add a bio to your profile
Tell the community who you are and what you do so they get to know you.
Explain what you’re working on
When uploading shots, include interesting descriptions of your own work. Again, a little context goes a long way in getting people interested in your work.
Explore the work of others
When commenting on other members’ work, make it meaningful. If you add value to others’ work, they’re more likely to be interested in yours.
Be explicit about feedback
If you want feedback on your shots, explain your work and what type of feedback you’re looking for. Don’t just post a shot without comment and expect to get comments back.
