RULES! **READ BEFORE POSTING**

36 posts in this topic

Members of Metal Forum, WELCOME TO THE FORUM! We all know rules are boring, but ask yourselves, what's a tyrannical dictatorship without rules? Chaos. And that simply won't do, because we mods rule with an iron fist! :arrow: Please speak English in these forums. Breaking the rules will result in a caution and thread-lock. Repeat offenses will be met with a permanent ban. You have been warned. Strict guidelines:- DO NOT post racist, sexist or homophobic remarks. DO NOT bully other users or make physical threats. DO NOT post links to or discuss illegal downloads. DO NOT disseminate other users' personal information. DO NOT post pornographic material (or anything that could be seen as such). DO NOT post spam. DO NOT advertise services or products for sale (unless given permission). General tips:- Be civil and polite to other users, even when you really disagree with them! Mutual respect is important. Do not create huge signatures with lines of images. It means more scrolling, and that's not fair on our poor mouse wheels and trackpads. If your sig is any bigger than the one on this post, it's too big. If your sig disappears, it was deleted for being too big. If you repost it, you'll annoy other users and the mods. This will result in an eSlap. If a thread is clearly going to be locked, don't spam it with remarks like "This thread is going to be locked". You're just bumping a crappy thread. If you're not sure where something should go, post it in General Discussion. You aren't a moderator, and acting like one isn't cool. You can swear all you like, but targeting abuse at an individual will be treated as bullying. Try to keep Rick-rolling to a minimum. Make your thread titles relevant to the content. Search the forums before posting news articles to cut down on copypasta. If you want a thread to be stickied, include "Sticky please" in the title. If it doesn't get stickied, it isn't worthy. Deal with it. If you feel your thread is NSFW, warn people in the title. Think before you do anything illegal. We will work with the authorities for great justice. Generally being excessively crude, irritating or attempting to troll for lulz may get you banned at the discretion of the moderators. Respect their decisions, they are only enforcing the rules. You can appeal a ban, but we will be checking logs to assess your offense, so don't try to lie about it. If you have any issues or suggestions, there is a place for them here. If you have any questions about the forums, post them in this thread but please, read the FAQs first! -Metal Forum Team

Re: RULES! **READ BEFORE POSTING** Hi, If I post a link to a full album stored in YouTube, is that against the rules? Thanks. Enviado desde mi GT-N7000 mediante Tapatalk

Gotta respect the fact that a metal forum... Which through certain eyes can be viewed as anarchistic... Turns out to be better at both making rules, and phrasing them in a way which makes people *want to* follow them, than society in general.

Do album covers with pornographic images count?

Album/Band names that are in foreign languages?

Just thought I'd check before I posted anything.

As long as you use common sense you should be fine. For example, we have a thread in the forum games section dedicated to the female form, but nothing overly sexual or pornographic in nature is posted. I also highly doubt the album/band name thing will cause any issues.

so dont post racist sexist shit? so dont be a dick

You make it sound so easy. Some folks have gotten away with both, but fuck their lily white asses. Welcome to the forum, and please make an introduction of yourself in the introductions area if you are at all inclined to do so. mention something about your musical taste if you would, as that will be of general interest.

Somebody told me my thread was redundant. I was just trying to get everyone's opinion on their music, but this is the first time I've ever posted on a forum so I don't really know the "right" things to say I guess.

Which is why it's best to start out with an introduction thread about yourself, I notice you've since done that, and lurk a bit to see what sort of community you've engaged and whether it is one you'll enjoy being a part of. FA was technically correct in that such a broad thread given our varying tastes is redundant. Metal is a huge genre, sufficient in size to merit a plethora of sub-genres, so there is not possible way to effectively answer your question. Thereby making the thread redundant.

 

One last point - posting about issues in the "READ THE RULES" thread was another mistake. This thread merely lays out the rules by which our community is governed and was not intended for any other purpose. In future please direct complaints to either our site moderators (myself, FatherAlabaster, and BlutAusNerd) or our site admin DilatedMind thank you.
