    Exclamation Please Remember To Include Your Source In Articles and use Full Names!

    1. For legal reasons

    2. I can't post it on the main page without the source.

    Thank you!

    Just adding that it would help if anyone posting a gossip thread could include a direct link to the article than just the name of the site where it came from, better sourcing that way.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    A little OT, but it would be nice if people could check their spelling and grammar before posting threads. We're getting a lot of mistakes lately. Thanks.

    Just a reminder not to advertize or spam our forums.


    Posting
    There are a few things you need to be aware of before posting.
    • Do not personally attack other members. Posts that are in a malicious, personal and hurtful manner are prohibited. If you can't express your feelings or ideas without personal insults. Do not post it.
    • We do not accept racism or homophobia or any other forms of prejudice here. If this sort of manner continues, you will be banned with no warning.
    • Please do not spam. We consider spamming as posting on the forums in an attempt to drive traffic or solicit people to participate or visit another website. Posts deemed as spam will either be edited or removed, and the user may be banned.
    • Do not double post. This is when one member has more than one post in a row. It is no longer a discussion, but a list of 1 person's posts. If you wish to quote multiple people, simply copy and paste and edit your posts. There is no time limit on editing your post.
      Exceptions are: 1. Your post is too long and goes over the maximum post length. 2. You have an extremely, urgent and personal matter and need to bump a thread
    • Make an attempt to thumbnail your images. This gesture reduces costs for other people who may be unknowingly hosting the image (Hot Linking), as well as allows members with lower resolution monitors to view the forum in it's entirety.

    There is a trend of replacing Paris Hilton's name with the word "banned". Unfortunately you still must include her full name in your thread titles, that does not change the rules of this forum.

    Please try not to double post (= posting duplicate articles) by using the search function to see if the same topic has already been posted. You may be given a warning or infraction point(s) and your thread may be deleted or merged with the existing one.

    Thanks

    An update:

    Please try and put your thread in the right forum. Gossip forum is for gossip, not photos...

    Member Disputes

    The easiest method is to contact that member directly. They have the ability to edit their own posts after making the post.

    The other option would be to execute a legal court order. We will of course abide by any court order issued by a US court.

    We do not have the time or resources to deal with member disputes. If you have an issue with a member, either place them on your Ignore List or work it out, privately through the Private Messaging system.

    You are encouraged to use the reporting button to report a post which you feel has violated the Posting Guidelines.

    Reporting Posts
    Do not contact the administrator or the moderators directly. Reporting a post sends a flag to all moderators and administrators.

    (reposted from new announcement)

    Again, when posting articles please include a link to the source at the end of the post. Not just a random linked name in the thread or a text of "it came from ____ magazine".

    Random gossip/rumor with no article or source belongs in Miscellaneous (like Shania Twain getting married! wound up as).

    Do not just post a link to an article or pictures, post the article/images itself with the source at the bottom.

    Failure to follow rules will result in infractions, infractions lead to banning, blah, blah, blah.
