General Forum Rules
General rules for joining and using the BR forum


Check the rules when changes are made
Whenever rules are updated or added, an update post will be made. Please make sure to read the new rules and to check from time to time in case the rules were updated without your knowledge.

Check the Update thread
Updates will be made by moderators/admins from time to time. Please make sure you read these in order to stay up to date with what’s going on around the forum and to prevent yourself from missing important information!

Read the rules for each section
Make sure to take a note of the different rules for each section of the forum. For example, posts in the unofficial solos/collabs section or the marketplace must follow certain rules and/or guidelines.

Copyright Infringement Notice
Because BR has been under surveillance for copyright reasons. Please do not post any direct links to MP3s (box.net, 4shared, mediafire, etc.) on the forum anywhere including threads, PMs, etc. Youtube links are okay. Please see the box.net Guidelines thread for instructions.

http://www.box.net accounts
Please make a box account as this is our primary method of file sharing. After your box account is made please send the email linked to that account to one of the moderators/admins so they can add you to the MP3 sharing folder as a collaborator.

Keep your Calendarium up to date
To help keep you organized with your deadlines, please update your Calendarium so that you will never forget a deadline.

Be active
Once you’ve signed up, join projects, listen to and comment on new releases, chat on the various threads. We all want to get to know you better!

No useless posts
Try to avoid spamming in project threads to make moderators’ jobs easier; please ensure all chatting in project threads are relevant to the project. If you would like to chat, visit the Random section where you can talk about anything and spam to your heart’s contents. Also, please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts.
"...to bump a thread on an Internet forum is to post a reply to it purely in order to raise the thread's profile." (wikipedia)

Treat others as you would like to be treated
This means being respectful of others, being nice, and treating others in a friendly/civil manner. Refrain from any hurtful comments, flamewars, and trolling. Coarse/insulting language will not be tolerated. Constructive criticism is welcomed, but insults directed towards other users or the site admins will not be tolerated. If someone helps you out, make sure you remember to have good manners and thank them.

No sexual content
Do not link to any site that contains adult content, sexually oriented material or might otherwise be considered offensive. Mature discussions are allowed as long as they're handed tastefully. Any post containing an inappropriate link will be deleted and the poster will receive a warning.

GIVE YOUR BEST AND HAVE FUN!!
Self explanatory. :)
