The UK Music forums have grown tremendously over the past years and we thank all of you for being a part of this growing community. In order to keep the forums running well and to prevent problems, please follow these simple rules for the forums here. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact one of the Staff Members. General Rules While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, profanity (or attempts to bypass profanity filters), insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters. Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, visitor messages, blog comments, picture comments and private message systems to spam other members. Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. General 'how-to' questions this should be 24 hours. For specific troubleshooting issues, use 12 hours as a guideline. We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate our community standards. The UK Music team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed. Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'ooh look, yet another music site' threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards. We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice. If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post. Posts arguing about company policies are not allowed. You can fill out a support ticket if you have issue with company policies. Posts discussing moderator actions are also not allowed. 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. You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal. You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
