Community update March 2018

Dear Freesounders,

  • Treat email addresses as case-insensitive.
  • Improvements in the API documentation.

    To the FreeSound Team,
    Thank You very much for the update. I enjoy very much and I use sounds from freesound on my YouTube Channel. I always leave credits either in the video or in the description.
    I have a sound recorder and I am going to be uploading some sounds of my own.
    Please keep me posted!
