FORUM RULES (Please Read Before Posting)

Recommended Posts

The JWFan Message Board is aimed to be a discussion and information exchange forum mainly focused on John Williams and other film and music related topics. In order to make the forum an enjoyable experience for everyone, we are providing this service under the following Rules and Regulations:


01 - Personal attacks will not be allowed. Please be RESPECTFUL of one another, allow for differences in opinions, and please don't make anyone feel that they cannot post their views in this forum.


02 - Do not post any material that disparages race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or nation.


03 - Do not impersonate any person or entity, including but not limited to, a message board administrator or a registered member.


04 - In order to avoid controversial off-topic debates, political and religious references are NOT ALLOWED ON ANY OF THE FORUMS.


05 - There is no language filter on this board but be respectful. There is no need for sexually graphic posts, and foul language directed at another member in a disparaging way will result in administrative action.


06 - Images containing nudity or other Not Safe For Work (NSFW) content are not allowed on any of the forums. It is OK to link to sites containing potential NSFW content as long as a clear NSFW warning is included with the link.


07 - You may embed videos of - or include a link to sites that stream - copyrighted material. However, links to sites where copyrighted material can be illegally downloaded are not allowed. You may link to legal streaming/download sites or to places where people can listen to your own compositions or recordings, for example.


08 - Discussion of music CDs before they are in stores (ie when they "leak" to the internet) is allowed, as is discussion of leaked recording sessions, sheet music, and other bootlegs. HOWEVER:

a) You may not post a link to, or name of, any site where this material can be illegally downloaded.

b) You may not offer on the public forums to send this material to anybody who PMs you.

c) You may not ask on the public forums for somebody to PM you a link to this material.

In other words: On the public forums, please discuss the music only, and not where to get it. This rule will be strictly enforced.


09 - Do not copy and paste CD/film reviews, full interviews, or other articles that can be found online. You can paste portions and provide a link to the original page instead.


10 - DO NOT TYPE YOUR POSTS IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, including the subject line. Capitals can be used for emphasis but are annoying to read if used for the entire message or subject line.


11 - Do not post spoilers in a thread title. The title should contain the word "Spoiler", and the spoilers can be in the body of the post. Make sure to use the [ spoiler] [ /spoiler] tags where appropriate.


12 - Regarding the NEWS posts: ALWAYS cite the source of your report, providing a link to the original page if the news was first posted on another website.


13 - Do not post unofficial/unconfirmed news as if they were official or confirmed. There is a big difference between an unconfirmed RUMOR and an official report. Always verify your sources.


14 - Maximum size for signature images will be 640 x 250 pixels (width x height).


15 - The forum moderator reserves the right to edit, move or delete the contents of any post without prior notice.


16 - If your post was edited or removed and you think it was not in violation of the rules, please contact a moderator/admin via PM.


17 - If a member fails to comply with one or more of these rules repeatedly, they will not be able to post in the future.


18 - These rules & guidelines may be amended at any time.
