Posting Rules

No discussion of politics or religion - including taglines. This is a guitar and bass discussion board, let's stick to that.

Please try and post in the appropriate forum - see forum descriptions. Posts that are placed in the wrong forum will be moved.

Be polite and behave in a grown-up manner. Any communication (including signatures and taglines) that is likely to be taken as an attempt to humiliate, embarrass, harass, threaten or belittle any person or group, whether a member of or not, is considered a violation of these rules.

Arguing with and/or rude behavior towards administrators or moderators regarding disciplinary actions will not be tolerated. You may NOT bring up any such issues with administrators or moderators in any threads on this forum. Use the Private Messaging System for communicating such issues. If you can't resolve the issue, contact the administrator Robert who will make the final decision.

Please stay on topic - try your best to not clog up the guitar/bass/gear forums with jokes and funny one-liners. These type of posts are welcome in the Open Mic forum.

No profanity, no posting of vulgar material or obscene images, no statements that are hateful or statements that are racially or sexually offensive, no posting of copyrighted material, no posts about how to perform illegal activities of any kind. Absolutely no information regarding drugs or drug paraphernalia.

To post cover songs on you must agree to pay statutory royalty rates to the publisher of the original song. This applies even if your recorded material resides on a different server than where is hosted.

You are not allowed to post private communications between you and someone else (emails, Private Messages, phone calls, etc), or to post details about another person, such as their email address, phone number, personal address, work address, etc.

Do NOT use as a basis for spamming or scamming our members. We take forum posts/PM/email abuse very seriously - it will result in an immediate lifetime ban- without warning .

Violating these rules will result in a warning, or in extreme cases, immediate banning. Repeated violation of these rules will lead to suspension or banning of your account, at the discretion of the moderation staff.

Word of advice - if you are unsure whether the information you are about to communicate on is within these rules or not - ask a moderator BEFORE you post anything.

These rules may be updated at any time, and a notification will be posted in the Announcements & Suggestions forum when so happens.
