~ Welcome, New Members Of The KPopSource Forum! ~


The rules are going to be divided into two categories for ease of access and reference:

General Posting Rules & Guidelines
Signature/Avatar/Display Name Rules & Guidelines


**NOTE** that this rules & guidelines post is always going to be incomplete, as new rules & guidelines will be made (and old ones will be changed/improved) as our community continues to grow.
Any new or majorly changed rules will be sent out via a an alert so that all members will know as soon as possible.


~ General Posting Rules & Guidelines ~

These are rules & guidelines that must be followed in any and all posts made on this forum.
These rules are in place to ensure that our forum remains a safe and friendly place for Kpop lovers to gather and discuss the things we love most: Kpop!


- Be kind and courteous to others: tensions may run high in some threads (i.e., the music threads), but please remain courteous to others at all times. Any members that posts rude or hateful comments towards other members will receive a warning from the mods. Repeat offenders may be subject to temporary or permanent bans from the forum. If you, as a member, receive an unkind or hateful comment from another member, please contact a moderator immediately.

- Do not start arguments with other members in the threads: if you have an issue with another member, please contact a moderator. Do not start an argument or a fight in a thread or board. These will not be tolerated, and both offenders will receive a warning and/or temporary ban, depending on how serious the fight was, and what it was about. Casual and friendly debates over things are okay, but do not escalate to name-calling or threats.

- Do not insult Kpop groups or group members: we all have our biases, and we all have our reasons for loving them. We all have our personal opinions, and sharing them is one thing, but using "opinions" to insult Kpop groups or particular members of certain groups is something else entirely. Please do not post hateful comments about a Kpop group, a member in a group, or towards a forum member's bias. Having an opinion is perfectly fine, but don't go around telling people "so-and-so sucks" or "so-and-so is a slut" or "this group or that group are untalented, and they should disband." Mods will not tolerate this kind of behavior. If anyone sends you hateful PMs or comments concerning a Kpop group or artist, please contact any of the mods immediately.

- Please, no excessive or unnecessary use of the f-word on this forum, and please no swearing at other members.

- Please do not make duplicate threads: this goes hand-in-hand with the creating threads for pre-existing topics, but we want to reiterate it here. Please do not create new threads containing the same/similar content as previous threads. Any duplicated threads found by the mods will be locked and deleted within 24 hours of your next log-in.

- Piracy is forbidden. This includes links to sites which promote or facilitate piracy as well as direct links to pirated materials such as torrents.

Here are examples of things we mods consider "rude" and/or "hateful," and they will not be tolerated:
--name-calling
--negative comments made towards another member's skin color, gender, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation
--negative/hurtful comments made towards a particular Kpop group or member
--threats of any kind towards another member
--excessive swearing directed at a member or members
--unprovoked verbal attacks towards other members


~ Signature/Avatar/Display Name Rules & Guidelines ~

We all love our display names & our signatures. They're like a piece of our personality, and we all have a right to have one.
However, there are some rules & guidelines that need to be followed.


- Signature Content: please do not use an image in your signature that depicts any sort of abuse, violence, offensive nudity, pornography, racism, sexism, or any sort of hate towards a particular religion or sexual orientation. This forum is a friendly place, and this kind of stuff will not be tolerated. Members violating this rule will be messaged by a mod, and they will be required to change their signature. If you have concerns about a member's signature content, feel free to contact any of the mods about it.

- Avatar Content: the same rules for Signature Content applies to Avatar content. Any members that have concerns about a member's avatar, feel free to contact any of the mods about it.

- Display Names: please do not use a display name that contains any sort of abuse, violence, racism, sexism, or any sort of hate towards a particular religion or sexual orientation even if it's an inside joke amongst a fandom. Members violating this rule will be messaged by a mod, and they will be required to change their Display Name. If you have concerns about a member's Display Name, feel free to contact any of the mods about it.

In effect from today on, we won't entertain requests from sites outside of our control on how our staff conduct moderation in this forum. We have no affiliation with any sites except for www.kpopsource.com. We'll follow suit what other sites have set for standards on allowing what are allowed to be seen.

Best Regards,
Taeyeon.
