    Forum Rules

    DO we have forum rules to regulate and a way to punish renegade members?

    With 1,117 members, the M-L forums it not very small anymore and I think it is about time we have some rules in the way we respond to other posters. Yes I know we are all mature here but some are not and we need forum rules to regulate them and also us.


    And can I also suggest to JP to add some more forums, like a "trailers only", "movie news", and the long requested "movie/trailer music" forum =)

    AGREE! & SUPPORT!

    p.s. yeah, "movie news" & "movie trailers" should be put separately.

    is there really need for those rules? 1117 memders. active 10%???

    and how often do u see threads with nasty answers. (excluding my replyes )

    my point, no need ot make rules if there is no need for them.

    I totally agree with Gaumont. From M-L forums, i've only seen 2 incidents where where totally unexceptable here.
    But i call for more threads to chat in. Catagories most stuff. Want back reviews thread too. What would be cool (and mentioned before) on each movie page on M-L, add a link to a threat post where only we talk about the movie and trailers in there. Anyone including non members can come in and read what we nerds talk about

    Put me down as voting for Movie Music fourm. As for written out rules? Hmm. I guess that's a good idea but most rules are common sense anyway.

    Rules:
    1. Don't be an asshat.
    2. Make use of the spoiler tag
    3. Every time you watch a trailer or reply, you take a drink. :big grin:
    4. There is no number four.

    I'd say pinning a rules thread @ the top would be a good idea if things got out of hand here. But I don't think they have even gotten close to that.

    But the specialized fourms sound nice

    I think he means the thread for the attack on Iraq (was deleted), and the most recent of making comments about dj_spikee's posts . Both included Vader75 as the bad guy.

    I think the extra forums is a very good idea. I think you can all guess that I'd like a reviews forum. The rules are not really needed yet as the regs here are so good that I thought there were rules.

    Kn'thrak , i suugest you make some rules or write them down somewhere...

    I would really like to know what is allowed and not allowed in the forums, it is still not very clear to me what posts or threads get deleted coz there is NO guide for the users to follow......

    i agree that we should have something there, even if it is not needed now. i'm sure there will be a time when it is, and then trying ot come up with something on the fly will be a pian in the butt...
