Rotten Tomatoes' Community Code of Conduct

by | March 7, 2019 | Comments

Fans come to Rotten Tomatoes for recommendations on what to watch — whether it be the latest movies in theaters or the newest series to binge at home. Like you, we live and breathe movies and TV, and we love a good debate about our favorites (and those we think are Rotten).

On Rotten Tomatoes, you can engage with us in a number of ways: By voting for the movies and TV shows you want to see, leaving a star rating, writing a movie or TV review, and leaving comments on our site and social platforms.

We’re building a community for movie and TV lovers to share their opinions and we want you to join us.  We’re all about healthy discussion and debate, but we do have some house rules we need you to respect so that the site is useful and enjoyable for everyone.

We value the diverse opinions of our audience, so you may find points of view that you don’t agree with. And that’s cool. However, there are certain things we’re not OK with: Attempts to manipulate our data in any way, for example, or the posting of offensive, hateful, or disparaging material – and we reserve the right to restrict or deny your ability to participate in our community if we believe you are doing so. Actions on our part could include, but are not limited to, removing your comments or reviews from the site and/or blocking you from posting ratings or reviews in the future.

To be more specific, we don’t allow you to upload, post, or distribute any material that we believe:

  • Could be considered libelous, defamatory, harassing, threatening, hate speech, slanderous, or inflammatory. So:
    • Don’t use obscenities or profanity directed at individuals, brands, or companies, including name-calling or personal attacks.
    • Don’t express hatred or intolerance for people based on religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, age, or disability. And don’t promote organizations with such views.
    • Don’t display behavior that could be described as trolling – things like starting quarrels or upsetting people by posting inflammatory or off-topic messages.
  • Is inappropriately sexually suggestive or contains explicit sexual content (including nudity).
  • Invades others’ privacy. For example, don’t post other people’s phone numbers, email addresses, mailing addresses, or other personal information, and don’t post links to phishing or other malware sites or any that contain a software virus.
  • Attempts to drown out other people’s opinions, including posting from multiple accounts or coordinating with others to do so, including setting up fake accounts.
  • Includes false statements or misinformation with the intention of misleading others.
  • Constitutes unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, junk or bulk e-mail (you may know it as “spam”), chain letters, any other form of unauthorized solicitation, or any form of lottery or gambling.
  • Encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense or give rise to civil liability.
  • Impersonates any person or entity, including any employee or representative of Rotten Tomatoes.
  • Has an inappropriate username or display image.

If you want even more detail on our terms of use and policies, you can find the complete list from our parent company here.

Note that we reserve the right to add to or change our community guidelines and policies as we see fit, and we’ll post those changes on the site if and when we do. Our community guidelines are enforceable across all Rotten Tomatoes platforms, including but not limited to our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

Thanks for taking the time to understand our guidelines, and we look forward to your valuable contributions to our site and social platforms.
