I2G 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.

Create Relevant Topic Titles
- Do not post misleading topics
- Include as much relevant information as possible
- Don't 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, 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 considered spam and deleted.

Useless Threads
- Do not create thread titles to instigate arguments. Eg. "My Fav. Artist > Your Fav Artist", "So and So = Wack" etc. These type of threads only result in pointless arguments.

Don't Create a Topic or Message in ALL CAPS
- ALL UPPERCASE TEXT is considered at best hard to read and at worst rude ("SHOUTING") so please avoid posting messages or subject lines in upper case only. If everything you type is in uppercase then make sure that your Caps Lock key is not inadvertently engaged
- ALL CAPS may lead to Topic Titles/Messages being deleted on sight



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.

No advertising
I2G has a strict "no spam" policy.
- 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.
- NEVER post full retail albums.
- NEVER request links to albums in the main sections. This will result in a temporary ban.

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.
- All decisions are final
- 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
- We like it when you use the default text (white text, default size, not scrolling across the screen) 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.
