Board Rules and Stuff
« On: February 13, 2012, 01:33:25 PM »
1. Discussion is great and very much welcomed, but please don't be argumentative, not everyone will agree, really! (I know, I thought everyone would agree with that the Phantom Menace is brilliant, but turns out that's not the case).

2. Please avoid one word replies, they add nothing to discussion, and it's just infuriating to read "yes" or "thanks" replies. Come now, if your reply is even boring to you, don't post!

3. Restrict the sizes of your avatar under 90x90, we have settings to prevent this from happening as we don't want our monitors full of your avatar, no matter how pretty (or unpretty) it might be.

4. Do not have over sized signatures. (Max is 500 wide and 200 high.)

5. Please use proper English, this is a forum, not a text message, you're not restricted to characters, so there's no need for using text speak!

6. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, please respect them.

7. Refrain from Double, triple or even quadruple posting. Edit your posts, (These will drastically reduce your chances of getting access) We will merge double, triple and quadruple posters, when needed. Plus you look like a loser if the only posts are you!

8. No favourite episode/Character threads. They're just boring. Look at me now, you've reduced me to tears.

9 Spammers will automatically have their download rights removed. This board is very much like the Nazi dictatorship and Nevel Chamerlain's appeasement policy giving Mr. Hitler the Sudatenland in 1938 on the condition he wouldn't take the whole of Checkslovakia. Don't be greedy.

10. Dont Use of a hell of a lot of Smilies in a Single post. (3 max) You'll just look silly.

11. Text larger than 16 points Verdana is strictly forbidden. We don't want our eyes to explode due to the size of your writing you fools!

12. No asking to be a moderator, if you're lovely, and we think you'll be right for the role, we'll ask you, so do us a favour lovely people, and be lovely and not ask to be a lovely moderator, lovely?

13. No harassing members on the forum, or by PM's. The report PM's to admin feature is active, members should report PM's to us if something is breaking the rules via PM's. Don't bombard us with love messages please! We know the love is there, let's keep it restricted, please!

14. No Pornography, Come now, you'd have to be a fool not to know that google can be your friend to some smashing pornography, but this is not a pornography board, some people even find it objectionable, let's be nice here, post about lovely stuff here, than wack yourself afterwards elsewhere, deal?

15. No re-naming the subject line. It's just confusing and will require several members to want to have a lie down due to being deeply traumatised, don't do it alright?

16. No hardware congas. I'd love a free Xbox 360 too, but like my pornography cravings, I'll keep it to myself and other idiots, and not bombard my friends on the forum with such stuff. Okay?

Posting on the forums is all about common sense, so use your best judgement. When posting.

Recently a new law was implemented in the EU regarding how Cookies are to be used and how they have to be implemented, since I am an EU citizen and the site is hosted in an EU country, I have to comply with this.

I'm not going to change anything regarding our use on Cookies. I will however openly state what goes into the cookies content, to give a clearer picture if you worry that much about it, law enforcement people who contact me about this will be forwarded to this post.

Let me just start by saying that NONE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION is stored in the cookie, if it were, that's just retarded. In fact, we don't ever ask you for personal information anyway. Anything you post about you is always down to you, I will never ask you for it, I'm not really that interested to be quite frank.

The information stored in the cookie contains your User ID, this is the number given to your account when you created it, in my case for example, this value is 1, it is not your username. Your password is stored in the cookie as well, but this is hashed, but also salted, making it impossible to be decrypted even if you were to try. Your session length is also stored in there obviously, as it's the cookie that determines how long you're logged in for. How long you login for is down to you. I believe that being logged in forever generates a -1 value.

Ads also make use of cookies to generate ads that are specific to you. I don't remember if they pull from your browsing history, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

For the information stored in the cookies is obviously something I could care less about. So it's not like I'll ask you for anything stored in there.

Basically, there's no harm in allowing the cookie to function.
