Default Forum Rules

Posting Rules :

1. Flaming, spamming / flooding, and derailing threads (see 'definitions') will result in your post or thread being removed and could result in a warning or infraction.

2. The posting of illegal media or hardcore pornography of any description is not allowed. Your post will be removed and, depending on the material posted (see ‘definitions’), you will be infracted and run the risk of having any details we hold passed onto the relevant authorities.

3. All posts must be written in the English language.

4. We have a strict policy on racial slurs. Though we acknowledge they can be used in the course of an adult discussion on race any other use of racial slurs will see you receive an infraction.

5. We do not allow links to sites hosting illegal material or warez. This includes, but is not limited to, linking to torrent sites to provide specific material unless said material is legally available to share.

6. No posting of another member’s personal information without their consent. This includes, but is not limited to; real names, email addresses, telephone numbers, PMs private IM conversations, IM screen names and home addresses It does not matter if the member has posted this information themselves in the past. Member’s unseen personal photos are also forbidden to be posted without permission. However, if the photo was posted on LiveLeak.com in the past with permission from the owner, it is now in the public domain though you may not alter or post said images with the intent of flaming the owner.

7. Do not make threads simply to complain about an infraction or moderator in the general section. They will be deleted.

8. At no time will members flame staff or post accusations of other members being LL staff. Moderators do a thankless job as it is without the rumour mill making life harder and regular members do not need abuse for being a member of staff when they aren’t.

Signatures :

1. Signatures should be 5 lines or less in total length at a screen resolution of 1024x768. This includes spaces as well as text.
2. No links outside of the LiveLeak.com system (the current exception are links to "mybrute" because those are important...apparently)
3. Signatures must conform to the posting rules.
4. No font larger than size 3.

Avatars:

1. No pornographic or graphic images.
2. No flaming or racial slurs using images or text.
3. No excessive profanity.

Multiple Accounts:

We do not approve of multiple accounts in the forums. We do realise that on the main site there are occasions where multiple accounts can be used legitimately for posting different kinds of media. On the forum there is no such justification. We will remove any multiple accounts we find and often pass any infractions given over to the original account. There is also a possibility you could lose your account(s) site wide.

Proxy servers :

We do not disallow proxy surfing. We know some of you might need to use a proxy due to logging in at work or because you wish to remain anonymous. Please remember that abuse of proxies can see their IP range banned. Do not take this to mean you have been blocked because of your behaviour / opinion e.t.c.

Harassment / Abuse :

Repetitive threats, abuse, or harassment via private message, rep comments, or public posts, may well result in you getting a ban. Although we do not monitor private messages for content any member can request we view their PM's by accessing their account. Keep this in mind if you decide to go beyond one or two "strongly worded" messages. Please also remember that administrators do have open access to rep comments which are not intended to be a part of the private message system.

Privacy :

Neither forum moderators nor admins can access your private messages without your knowledge. There are only two situations where private messages are accessed.

• With your permission. If a member is having a problem with abusive or threatening PM’s they may invite us to access their account at an agreed time to view these messages.

• If there is a compelling legal reason to do so. There have been no circumstances so far where this has been required.

In the case of the first scenario you would be contacted by a site administrator such as Jupiter or LL_Hayden. In the case of the second scenario you may or may not be contacted depending on the situation. It is worth pointing out that, to date, the second point has not arisen.

We obviously cannot control any actions by legal bodies in the USA accessing information in accordance with relevant laws. To date we have not been informed of any such action having taken place.

We are aware that there are plugins available to enable moderators to view private messages. We are also aware there are plugins available which allow moderators to log in as users. We have not, and will not, install any such plugin, or alter the forum code to allow access, as we would consider any such actions a gross invasion of our member's privacy.

Moderators can see your IP address. This is unavoidable and any site you visit on the net has the same ability. Please read more about IP privacy by searching online if this concerns you.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Definitions:

Flaming :

Put simply this is insulting another member of the community. We do realise that people will take pot shots at each other for fun and that some members will always take many harmless things to be an insult. For our purposes we define flaming as being name calling and insulting people personally. If someone insults a religion or country this is NOT flaming and anyone responding with personal insults will receive an infraction.

We do not uphold complaints about flaming when it is aimed at a religion, group, or political movement / party. To the best of our knowledge there are no gods amongst our members and we are not here to defend your ideology in the eyes of others.

Spamming :

Spam comes in two flavours. Commercial spam where a person posts only to promote a site or product and non commercial spam where a member continually posts off topic, or repeatedly posts the same thread or comments over and over. Commercial spam will earn you a permanent ban instantly whereas non commercial spam will gain you an infraction.

Flooding:

Covered by non commercial spam above.

Derailing:

Threads will naturally drift off topic, this is the nature of these things. However we do take a dim view of members who continually attempt to derail threads. Most often this will result in the deletion of your post and a warning. Continued derailing could result in an infraction. Anyone derailing a thread in the on topic section will receive an infraction without warning.

Illegal and ‘Bad’ media :

Illegal media includes, but is not limited to :

• Child pornography of any description.
• Animal cruelty for the purposes of entertainment.
• Any video filmed and uploaded by a member which shows the user involved in illegal activity.

Bad media includes, but is not limited to :

• Hardcore pornography
• Beastiality
• Graphic media posted as entertainment or when used out of context.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Disclaimer :

Please be aware LiveLeak.com is a privately owned company. Although we will always do our utmost to provide as uncensored an environment as possible, within our rules, we reserve the right to remove any media or post and withdraw or refuse membership without prior warning or explanation.

Private Forums

Private forums are intended as an alternative to private social groups in that they offer far more in the way of features. Using this system members can create a private forum within the LiveLeak forums. You can have multiple sections and more control over content than is possible with social groups. To set up a private forum of your own please contact me and we will get it set up as soon as possible.

Included in setting up the forum is setting up a usergroup where group leaders can manage the membership.

General Rules:

1) Any group being used for malicious purposes (either on or off LiveLeak) will be closed without warning. The owner will not be allowed to re-open the group.

2) No personal information is to be posted within private forums without the express consent of the person(s) concerned.

3) No illegal content should be posted. This includes, but is not limited to, :
  • Links to warez or warez sites
  • Any illegal media
  • Any clips or images showing cruelty for animals carried out for entertainment purposes
  • Any media, content, or link to sites, which can endanger the safety or privacy of a fellow member of LiveLeak.com

4)Forum owners are responsible for their group and group moderators. If any group is found to be breaking the rules owners will be warned. Failure to follow warnings will see the forum deleted.

5) Members will only be allowed one private forum.

6) LiveLeak.com reserves the right to refuse the creation of any group or remove any forum / usergroup with or without warning.

LiveLeak moderators will not, as a general rule, check on private groups. However, random checks will be carried out from time to time to ensure groups are following the rules.


Sections and moderation:

You can create sections by sending a PM to me. The section will be added as soon as possible.

You can assign moderators to each section by providing me with their username.

Private forum mods will be able to remove offensive posts but they will not be able to eject members from the group. You can nominate another member to be a group leader alongside you if you wish. They will have the abilities you have which will include:

Deleting and editing posts.
Deleting and editing threads.
Sticking and closing threads.
Removing members from the group.
Processing join requests.


Premium members private forums:

Premium member forums will be as the regular private forums with the following additions:

1) Premium members can upload a banner (no more than 875x150px) to an image host of their choice then provide me with the url to have the banner placed at the top of their forum.

2) Premium members will be offered a choice of themes for their forum. As soon as these themes are available details will be posted in the premium forums.

3) Premium members can, if they so wish, open up to three private forums.

Default Infractions

The infraction system and how it works:

In line with the recent usergroup changes the infraction system has been refreshed. Here is how it works.
Infractions:

Flaming = 1 Infraction point which expires after 30 days.
Spam (non commercial) = 1 Infraction point which expires after 30 days.
Racial Slur = 1 Infraction point which expires after 30 days.
Insulting / attacking staff = 2 Infraction points which expire after 2 months.
Revealing personal information (warning) = 3 Infraction points which expire after 2 months.
Rule #5 violation = 18 infraction points which do not expire.
Revealing personal information (repeated / serious) = 18 Infraction points which do not expire.
Spam (commercial) = 100 Infraction points which do not expire.
Posting Illegal media = 100 Infraction points which do not expire.

Points and penalties:
1 point = 24 hours in the Sin Bin
2 points = 3 days in the Sin Bin
3 points = 7 days in the Sin Bin
6 points = 2 Weeks in the Sin Bin
9 points = 2 months in the Sin Bin
18 points = Moved to The Dumpster for admin review.
100 points = Instant perma ban.

Remember that mods can move members into the Sin Bin or dumpster using custom infractions if they feel it is necessary.
