If you have any questions about whether something you plan to post will violate any of these rules, or if you see something that you think could be out of line, drop the admins a note.
Let's keep things as they were able to work for so long on bz: loose, friendly and fab.
General rules which will be updated as needed so check this post regularly:
- Be kind
This will usually resolve most issues before they start.
- Protect each others right to privacy
Don't reference any users private information (e.g. names, phone, email, location, etc.) without their direct permission. “Doxing” or providing links to private information with the intent to harass, bully, or abuse will result in an immediate ban.
- Do not spam the board with advertisements or self promotions
Do not self-promote your website, business, forums, discords, etc. without pre-approval from the admins.
Spamming also includes sending private messages and/or unsolicited links to a large number of different users.
Note that it is okay/encouraged to have a link to your site/blog/etc in your signature or profile. Just be respectful and courteous.
- Do not post any links or instructions for downloading pirated versions of existing or planned official releases
Official releases are available through plenty of channels and we should support the artists by purchasing them. This includes currently for sale versions of physical releases (CDs/LPs/DVDs/BRs/etc) and streaming content that is actively available on subscription services (Netflix/Apple/Amazon/etc).
- Do not try to sell your bootlegs here
All links are posted for educational purposes only. Anyone making an attempt to purchase or sell bootleg material will be warned or banned at admin/mods discretion. This includes aiding and abetting the for-sale production and/or distribution of tracks first shared here.
- Do not attach audio or video files directly to this forum
We are not hosting any media content directly on this server. All references or posts that involve content should be in the form of a link to any one of the many cloud hosting platforms that are available: Mega, Sync, YouTube, etc, etc, etc.
Pictures are welcome whenever an interesting link is posted!
- Password protected sites/files must include the password with the link
If a share leads to password protected content and the password is not next to the link, it will be removed.
- Do not request or share links to any pirated (WAREZ) software
This is not the place for that.
