Lightbulb Forum rules - version 1.5 (2009-02-23)

1. Forum general

1.1 This is a public community. Needless to say, you're expected to behave respectfully towards the other members. This is not a forum to express political or social opinions. There are more appropriate places for those.

1.2 On this forum we only share recordings from radio and TV. Do NOT ask for commercially available material because you will not find it here. You really should support your favourite artists through buying the records and DVDs that are available.

1.3 The official releasers only share the material here through BitTorrent for reasons explained in section 1 of the BitTorrent FAQ. Do NOT ask anyone to send you copies on DVD or to distribute the files through other means such as ftp or http. Other members of the forum are allowed to share links to files of their own but make sure the forum doesn't fill up with dead links because the administrator won't be happy if this happens. Make sure you have a plan on how to keep the files shared so other visitors to this forum doesn't have to deal with links that doesn't work.

1.4 You're free to upload your own avatar as long as it's not offensive to anyone. You can also create your own signature but you have to follow these guidelines: max 4 rows, max text size 4, 1 single text colour and no images. You are allowed to put a link to your own web site but no other advertisments are allowed.


2. Posting

2.1 Carefully select the correct forum to post in. You're encouraged to discuss and exchange ideas and opinions but use the forums correctly. "Upcoming events" is only to alert the forum staff of upcoming appearances that need recording. The "Torrents" forums are for the videos we release and you can comment on them there if you like - everything else goes into the parent forums.

2.2 Do NOT offer to share commercially available material. Doing so will result in a ban without warning.

2.3 Do NOT post advertisements of any kind. Doing so will result in a ban without warning. This of course includes advertisements and spamming through PM. The only exception to this rule is listed in section 1.4.

2.4 Do NOT double-post.

3. Downloading

3.1 If you have a flatrate broadband connection, you're expected to upload an equal amount of data as you download. This is an unwritten rule in the BitTorrent community and it's extremely rude towards anybody else downloading a file, if you just close your client as soon as you have finished downloading the file yourself. You don't have to run your computer day and night to help out. Just leave the file in your BitTorrent queue and run the client in the background when you don't need your bandwidth for other things. This will help other fans to get the files more quickly and I can't stress this enough - BitTorrent is all about sharing.

3.2 Do NOT use LimeWire as your BitTorrent client. LimeWire doesn't report back correctly to the tracker what it has downloaded and therefore can't help sharing any files. LimeWire has been banned for this reason.

3.3 Only download one file at a time! There is usually only one and the same person seeding all the files in this forum at any given time - i.e. me. Trying to download ten files simultaneously will only make you have to wait longer for the files to complete and also puts an unnecessary load on my network connection. I have taken the measures I can to prevent anyone from downloading multiple files simultaneously.
