Dubcc Forum Rules

Please abide by the following rules if you intend to continue posting in the forums.

Create Topics In The Appropriate Forums
- Each forum makes it clear from its name and description what is acceptable in there or not.  Be sure you have the appropriate forum before posting.  If there is no forum dedicated to the topic you wish to discuss, use Tha G-Spot.  Additionally, please verify your post is not a duplicate. Duplicate posts will be deleted and/or locked.

Create Relevant Topic Titles
- Do not post misleading topics
- Include as much relevant information as possible
- Try not to post general headings such as "check this out" or "help!" or add unnecessary punctuation such as "!!!!!!!!!!".

No "Teaser" Topic Titles
- If you are sharing an article, try to post the entire article (with source credits), not just the first few lines with a link to the article.  Same goes for interviews.
- If you create a topic promising something such as a news article, and in the message only provide a link, it will be subjugated to deletion/modification.

Do not bump posts
- Do not reply to your own threads for the sole purpose of bumping the topic. Deleting your post and replacing it with a similar post is considered the same, and can lead to the thread being deleted.
- Some bumped posts will be allowed if they are justified (eg. a topic suddenly becomes relevant again)

Personal Attacks
- In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, try to avoid personally attacking another member in the midst of a debate. While discussions may become heated, it is not a reason to resort to insults. There is a difference between a respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. We would like to avoid the bullshit as much as possible.

No advertising
- Dubcc has a strict "no spam" policy.  If your intention is only to share links, please contact Overseer or Rud to arrange advertising rates.
- While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's sites, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of "ooh look, check this out" threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other sites.

Signatures & Avatars
- Keep pictures to a reasonable size.  Pictures found to be too big will be removed. If your signature takes up nearly the whole screen or more, it's too big.
- Keep flashy images text to an absolute minimum.
- No pornography in sigs.
- Signature size and content will be judged by staff.  If we feel it is inappropriate in any way, it will be removed without warning.

File Sharing
- Distributing copyrighted material is strictly prohibited.
- Some times mp3's are leaked by artists/labels before an albums release.  Sharing these files is generally okay.  However occasionally we may receive requests to remove links.  If an mp3 is posted on the forum before a DUBCNN post of the same mp3, it will be merged with the DUBCNN topic and/or edited with a DUBCNN link.
- NEVER post full retail albums.
- NEVER request links to albums in the main sections.  This will result in a temporary ban.
- Mixtapes are okay.

Forum Politics
- Do not ask to become a mod.  It will never happen if you do.  Mod's are chosen based on merit and conduct on and off the forum.
- Mod's found manipulating discussions by editing/removing posts will be mods no more.
- Relevant and on-topic arguments/beefs will be allowed to run their course.  They will be closely monitored for violations of forum rules.  Please don't hold grudges over a debate.  There is a difference between the internet and real life.  It is up to the Mods to decide whether an argument/beef can run it's course. 

We do not openly discuss moderators' decisions
- The moderators are volunteers and do not have time to justify every decision to you, nor are they required to.
- If you have a question or issue with a moderator's decision, send a Private Message. Ruining threads by dwelling on moderators decisions, or re-posting modified/deleted posts will lead to the post being deleted and/or temporary ban being issued.

General
- Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.  Account sharing is a bannable offense, so please keep your password secure.
- We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
- If it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned.
   
Tips (Stuff we find annoying)
- Try not to quote exceedingly long posts, or posts with a lot of pictures.
- Posting an excessive amount of smilies is considered spam and will be deleted.
- Don't post pics so big that people have to scroll sideways.
- Default text is preferred, as it's easier for everyone to read this way.
- Grouprip thread titles are okay (although somewhat ugly), just NEVER request links.

What do Moderators Do?
- It is up to a Moderator to decide when a rule has been broken.  If a mod decides a rule has been broken it will result in deletion, thread lock, modification, or a ban.  Many decisions are discussed in the Moderators Lounge, and all mods are generally on the same page with regards to forum conduct.
- If you have an issue with a particular moderator, PM him.  Do not create an open thread.

Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

Please review these rules periodically as they are subject to change without notice.

Personal Attacks
- In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion will be locked by a moderator. Violators will be warned and/or banned.
Elior will return

Firstly i can understand why you want to clamp down on personal attacks but in the heat of the moment, before you can collect yourself, sometimes it happens.

Also I don't see the merit in locking the thread, surely if you insist on going after those launching personal attacks, then it should be them only and not the thread, which should be left active?

Does anyone find these rules slightly hypocritical now??? Hook up spot is pretty much a no zone. lol by some of these rules some posters won't be able 2 post now cause all they do is either post the same exact thing or they'll remake a thread with slightly different wording (like a Capital letter on the first word or underscore instead of space or even a dash instead of space).

Honestly, I don't really hate it, cause lets be honest forums have gotten mad retarded in recent months and some mad shit has gone off, including some amazing exposures, but I guess Alias are out now. Pretty much all the rules might make dub better, but it will might make it boring.


I request G-Spot be a rule free zone unless a specific Letter is givin within the post title like [RA] for Rules Apply. This way if a thread doesn't fit in any of the other categories but the user doesn't want a bunch of morons trolling then he can get help while people who want threads 4 just crazy discussion/beef can keep using G-Spot 4 them.


Also how about a porn rule that bans Child porn/the user who post it. Seriously you have enough problems with labels wanting copyright material off here, the last thing you need is a federal team looking at the forums for promoting/hosting child porn.

A lot of irrelevant replies, as expected in G-spot, but I'll reply to some of the relevant posts.

Firstly i can understand why you want to clamp down on personal attacks but in the heat of the moment, before you can collect yourself, sometimes it happens.
Also I don't see the merit in locking the thread, surely if you insist on going after those launching personal attacks, then it should be them only and not the thread, which should be left active?

Any poster can have a bad day, it's more to get rid of the "usual suspects" and the flame-wars that ruin several threads.
Threads with good discussions/info should not be locked, I agree, but some threads sets itself up for failure.


Does anyone find these rules slightly hypocritical now??? Hook up spot is pretty much a no zone. lol by some of these rules some posters won't be able 2 post now cause all they do is either post the same exact thing or they'll remake a thread with slightly different wording (like a Capital letter on the first word or underscore instead of space or even a dash instead of space).

Rules don't apply to hidden sections, most of the rules anyways, lol.. CP is illegal everywhere, shouldn't be needed to mention, not really an issue on here either.
The new rules makes it easier to deal with spammers, frauds, instigators and morons, if you're not in any of these categories, no need to worry.  8)

Fuck this rule.  Some of the funniest shit on here has been posted from an Alias.  What do they hurt?

Mainly aimed at the people who register multiple accounts to either: manipulate discussions for own gain, bump threads/post false positive reviews, launch cheap personal attacks/post personal info/adresses, spread ads all over the board, spew bullshit..

Surely a comedy account won't hurt, but if it doesn't fall in one of the afore-mentioned categories, mods won't even bother to check the IP's.

http://www.dubcnn.com/connect/index.php?topic=243539.0 It only takes 1 retarded ass motherfucker to link, one retarded person to report, and then the site can be investigated. What will they find??? A hip-hop site that's broken a variety of copyrights, multiple DRMs, and a course the Child Porn. Free software thread (which imo should be a sub-forum in the hook-up spot 2 be hidden like movies), The various movies already linked up 2 the site and a course the music.


Now honestly they won't have much do the fact that everything is linked, but users who linked can pretty much have there accounts closed not only on the forum, but there upload accounts.

Now honestly This is just a overstatement, but if labels can get paid via a lawsuit I wouldn't doubt they can. Lots of labels love 2 prove that Copyright bullshit. The only concern I give a shit about really is the Child porn issue. Don't want none of that shit on this bitch. Even if its a link every couple of months. Just saying, motherfuckers can get flack 4 anything these days.

Other then that, how about a Archive Section??? This way threads like the N.W.A thread, or Old threads that won't ever get updated lock'd and Archived so when we want to search for a link we can search in that section only and not have to deal with all the random crap that pops up. Look for anything related to Death Row and you'll come up with ton of topics that have nothing but chat. Now I know the Hook up spot is there but people remake threads all the time asking for stuff already posted. How about just 1 organized area and when links go down, admins can PM the user to have em either repost, or request the files to post on premium account (so they never get lost).


Or just help fix the Search function. ;O

Kain didn't post child porn, it was a random assnews article about a childporn star suing everybody who downloaded the movie.
