Post Forum Rules
The Stunt People Forum is a friendly, constructive environment for filmmakers, stunt persons, martial artists, game nerds, dung farmers, and everyone in between. In order to maintain some semblance of peace on The Stunt People Forum, users must follow some very basic rules:


RULES OF CONDUCT
1. Members will be respectful toward each other.
The Stunt People Forum is a growing community of artists and fans. All members will show respect toward each other during discussions, arguments, critiques, and any other posts. Conflicts will arise, and members must always motion toward peaceful discussion.

2. Members must become acquainted with the forum functions.
Members must be aware that moderators issue warnings and personal messages through private messaging on the forum, and those who do not become acquainted with the Stunt People Forum setup will not receive such messages. It is in both the individual user's and the community's interest that all members acquaint themselves with the Stunt People Forum setup.

3. Flaming and Attacks are prohibited.
Members are reminded that we are a community, and there is no room for personal assaults. Do not berate, insult, purposefully anger, or try to get a rise out of any other members. Posting comments that serve only to aggravate other members will not be tolerated and will be cause for account suspension or permanent ban.

4. Thread-Jacking is prohibited.
Members must stay on topic. Any information that is "off-topic" must be moved to a new thread or into an appropriate thread. Inciting an off-topic conversation through slander or offensive remarks ("flaming") will also be considered thread-jacking. Off-topic comments will be removed, and a warning will be issued.

5. Ranting is only allowed in the "Rants" section.
A "rant" is characterized by long-winded, illogical, non-constructive language. Ranting will not be tolerated in any forum section except for the "Rants" section. When a discussion turns into a rant, continue the discussion in the "Rants" section. This includes movie reviews. When posting a movie review in a non-"Rants" section, members may be as harsh as they please, but they must be constructive and logical, or the "rant" will be moved to the "Rants" section and a warning will be issued.

6. Discussion regarding bans and warnings will not be discussed on The Stunt People Forum.
All matters pertaining to bans and warnings will be kept private between moderators and members. If there are any questions regarding such information, please private message a moderator. Any post regarding these matters will be deleted, and a warning will be issued to its author.

7. Posts may not incite or condone piracy.
Posts containing or linking to videos on YouTube, Myspace, or any other major video service are generally welcome. However, users may not post links to downloadable full films for which they do not own the copyrights. This includes torrents, split videos on major video services, direct links, and "yousendit" files (or any other file-sharing service). Use discretion when posting information or links regarding pirated media.

8. Spamming, Bumping, and Pyramid Quoting are prohibited.
Spamming will not be tolerated and is reason for permanent ban. If a user's account has been hijacked and used for spam, the original user must contact a moderator via email (stuntpeople at yahoo dot com) so that the account may be reset. Bumping of posts, meant to bring a post to the top of a section simply to gain attention, is an annoyance to other forum members and will not be tolerated. Pyramid quoting, the quoting of 4 or more posts, also will not be tolerated. Members should quote no more than 3 posts or the post will be truncated, and a warning will be issued.

9. Members must not aggravate infractions.
If another member is breaking the rules, please tell a moderator or administrator so that it may be dealt with. Members are asked not to fight fire with fire, as this could put them at risk of being warned or banned. Vigilantism will not be tolerated.

10. Banning from The Stunt People Forum can result from any of the following:
Posts containing pornography; discriminitory remarks regarding (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual preference; excessive vulgarity outside the "Rants" section and not conforming to forum rules therein; posts inciting, condoning, or illustrating illegal activity; linking to sites containing said material.

11. These rules are flexible at the discretion of moderators and administrators only.
Members will not take it upon themselves to decide when, where, how, and to whom the rules apply. This is the job of administrators and moderators only. Administrators and moderators are here to maintain peace on The Stunt People Forum. They ask that you assist them in this by following the rules and not arguing when the rules are enforced.


FORUM-SPECIFIC RULES
Independent Alley
Please post any independent movies here if they're for showcase, even if they're not your own. If you can't decide whether it's "indie", go ahead and post in Video Downloads and let moderators make the decision. Independent Alley is a growing collection of solid, indie material, which we don't want to get lost in the fast-paced Video Downloads section.

Video Downloads
Post any non-indie-showcase videos here. Random Youtube clips and professional films alike are suitable for this section.

There should probably be size restrictions for avatars and signatures. Huge signatures really break up the flow of pages.

How come you get to make up all the rules? Talk about delusions of grandeur. Fascist.

If I had my way I would ban all discussion of martial arts films by people who don't like Tony Jaa.

If anyone posted a video which had already been posted by someone else within the last five years they would be automatically banned, hunted and exterminated as the scum they are.

Films that are better than mine would be automatically banned. Criticism of my films would be banned.

Members would be strictly divided up by their sex, ethnicity and religious beliefs and ranked according to how much I rate that particular groups contribution to society.

All disagreements would be aired publicaly and on video - people would no longer be able to hide behind the anonymity of a keyboard but would have to film their rants and post them in the Video Downloads section so I can see what a bunch of freakishly ugly dickheads you all are.

I would arbitrarily change the rules from day to day to combat global warming.

I'll be there in a minute mother. I know - I took it at five - no the doctor said if I take two on an empty stomach I might start reverting. Just go away will you - Alright I'm taking it I'm taking it. Shit. No water - where's that pint glass I pissed in last night. Oh well, when you've got to take your anti-psychotics you've got to take them...

Updated the rules with some forum-specific ones. I'd rather not clog up each forum with stickies, so I'm posting them all here.
