    As a new user, I truly thank you for the advice, OnlyTheGhosts. You described the method well, and I believe that I fully understand it. Basically, I can still get the results I need using it, but it will take two searches instead of just one search.

    For example, when I wish to search for only commercially useable sound files, I should just run my search query twice - once for the “Attribution” licensed sound files, and then again for the “Creative Commons 0” license sound files.

    I’ll grant you, it is a way around my single-step approach of using an elimination of a category (or categories) in the search criteria window itself to get a bigger list of results in only one search. Nonetheless, your advice is extremely helpful using the current search system, and I appreciate it. So thanks again.

    It is great to see people willing to help out a new member.

    Sincerely,
    ChildrensAuthor

    That way, for example, I can eliminate all of the sound files that are not commercially useable, saving myself a lot time.

    That can already be filtered. When I do a search for a type of sound, the license types that are available appear on the right side under the label licenses in red.

    I'm looking for a great recording of wolves howling in a forest or a valley. Any help much appreciated.

    We have a combination of high uploads and few mods available. - mods are volunteers, experienced users who don't get paid and contribute their *free* time to moderate sounds.
    Meaning that when freesounders have no free time, they don't moderate...

    We also have some users who are whitelisted. This is done for users with a considerable amount of sounds and/or which we know will not upload copyrighted material and describe and tag their sounds properly.
    Sounds from those users don't go through moderation anymore and will continue to appear on the database even when there is a moderation queue...

    This is not elitism or favouritism, by the way.
    Moderation exists for 2 reasons:
    1) reject copyrighted material and other unsuitable material (e.g. Music)
    2) check sounds have adequate descriptions and tags
    Users that can do the above do not need to go through the moderation process. That frees up mod time to concentrate on the sounds we actually need to check.

    I can forgive them for the time taken for checking mine, as some of the files I've uploaded are quite large. The easy ones passed moderation first.

    Over the passed 48 hours I've been seeing a lot of this going on. I'm sure there is lots of other people's sounds that are waiting to be uploaded. May this be dealt with soon.

    I'm about to release a new beat, but this time I would love to have my own tag line.
    Could any females help me out and say "A Teddy Slick Production" in a sexy seductive sort of way. Thanks!

    Kind of a weird request, but offhand does anyone know where I can get a sound like this one? It's the tweet of a Lamp Commander from the 90's (A voice activated clapper). I had one as a kid and I want to incorporate the noise into my best man speech for my brother.

    I have just verified that HTML 5 playback of OGG files works on other sites. However, apparently SoundManager2 just thinks, "oh, it's Firefox!", and insists on Flash. If OGG files are really available, then this might really just be an SM2 problem.

    Thank you very much. I knew that there had to be a reason, but I just couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I'm wanting to start making some web based games, and I have no problem giving credit. That's what led me here. Thank you for the welcome! Glad to have found this place. I'll look into your sounds!

    Hey, shotokando!
    The reason is quite simple:
    If you e.g. do audio post for TV and film a lot, like I do, you simply CAN'T credit the fs contributor unless it happens to be your own film and you get to decide what makes the credit roll.
    That is why I am for one very grateful to all cc0 contributors whose sounds have helped me out of one or the other pickle over the years when I was looking for this atmo or that effect.
    That is also why ANYTHING I put up here is cc0. Use it if you need it, like if my neighbor needs a quart of milk, sort of thing.
    It's not a matter of respect, or the lack thereof, but simply of expediency in day-to-day work.
    There's tons of freesounders who will always get a beer bought for them if they happen by, and if I make something I have the necessary control over, EVERYBODY's credited, be it cc0 or whatnot.
    Yep, that's how it is. Welcome here, anyhow! smile
