    The tune rules

    Post  White Hollow on Mon Aug 09, 2010 9:59 am

    So, read carefully:


    ”self-promotion”
    tabs and partitions
    playlists
    mixes (Drum’n’Bass etc.)
    AMV’s (author-made videos)
    discussions about concerts, festivals (elaborated on in Rule 3, point 4: bootlegs)Those are allowed

    ‘Please keep replies and posts topical to the forum on which they are posted or they will be removed. Do a search if you want to ask a question or start a new thread to make sure that it hasn't been posted before.
    Relating to topicality, you should not be changing the topic of an existing thread when you reply. This just serves to confuse people who have been following a thread, and often leads to spam and extra threads.’

    I. SPAM
    Spam includes posts like “This is spam. Reported.” and anything among those lines. Not only do they fail to contribute to a discussion; they also start annoying other members and grab more attention on the rule-infracting topic. Instead of adding more spam, use the “Report” button and LEAVE. A moderator will come around to handle the issue

    II. Duplicate threads
    Are you new to the forum? Do you want to post a thread? Before you post a new topic, please run a quick search to see if the subject is not already being discussed somewhere else. There is no point in having a “Children of Bodom” thread somewhere and then “Alexi Laiho is a god” 2 steps below. In that case, it is better to bump the other thread, assuming it’s not deadly old, but if you find 10 similar threads and post a new one, it’s either going to be locked or merged.

    III. Links
    ’Unsolicited promotion of other web sites, or products, is spam, and will be removed on sight without warning. Please keep our forums free of unsolicited advertisement or product promotion. Posting referral/recruitment/trick links is strictly prohibited.’

    However, links to video uploading sites like https://www.youtube.com/ or online radios like http://www.pandora.com/ are of course allowed.
    If other, similar sites come to your mind, please post them here and I will add them to the list.

    IV. No inappropriate content
    This includes linking to any sites that may violate the rules. In relation to this section, this includes:

    adult-oriented content:
    Obviously, some of nowadays’ music contains a fair amount of swearing, provocating or shocking content. You don’t need to worry too much about that; I respect the liberty and expression of the artist and might just end up editing the post(s) a bit.
    However, as you are aware, any vast terrain also has its limits. If a thread contains pornography, it will be replaced by another video or removed on sight. Pornographic content is not allowed on any part of the site and will result in an instant warning or ban.

    download links and piracy:
    Download links, torrents and anything of that nature are not allowed since this is not a downoading site and will be removed on sight.
    trades:
    The point is, the Card Trade forum of 2007 was shut down for a reason and trades of any type are generally forbidden on the site. In regard to this section, this includes sale/trade lists, eBay auctions, etc. This is not allowed on the site; if you’re selling or looking for something, you’re better served with Amazon or eBay.
    bootlegs.:
    Upon request of many official band sites, posting bootlegs from live shows is not allowed. We are fine with small clips of a specific moment from a concert (by small we mean 3 to max. 5 minutes), but entire shows should not be posted and will simply be removed.

    V. No flaming / harassment
    ‘Harassment is defined as specifically targeting another player or group of players to harm or inconvenience them.’

    ‘Any speech or inference, direct or indirect, that constitutes a personal attack against another individual or group is prohibited. Do not insult other users for their ideas/opinions no matter how ridiculous they may be.’

    Discussion is always welcome whereas crapping up threads with flame wars, personal insults and “Holier than thou” opinions is not. There is a difference between “you don’t know what you’re talking about” and “you are an idiot because you listen to ~insert something here~”. Flaming or harassing someone for having a different music taste is not allowed in any form.
    This does of course not include debates, comparisons or discussions about why you think a band or genre is better than another, which can take place at any point.

    Criticism is good if it’s done with a constructive insight. If we see that you attack someone or something just for the sake of it or because you simply can’t hold your temper in check you will have broken the rules.

    More may be added
