Official policies - what is and what isn't allowed on Runboard


This topic may be subject to modifications - additions, substractions and maybe even more algebra.

This is the list of material that, currently, is absolutely not allowed on Runboard IN PUBLIC OR PRIVATE BOARDS/FORUMS:

- Adult material, as in "Sexually explicit pictures, writing, movies or other material whose primary purpose is to cause sexual arousal.". This obviously includes child pornography.

- Warez, as in "derivative for the plural form of the word "software" meaning copyrighted material traded in violation of its copyright license." This includes links to warez. A board full of links to warez or pirate divx bittorrents is NOT fine.

- Racism, antisemitism and co. - search Google if you need a definition.

- Slandering, as in "Oral communication of false statements injurious to a person's reputation."




What is permitted? Everything else. As long as something is not explicitely prohibited - it's permitted - UNLESS it's just obviously wrong to any mentally sane person.

What happens to boards that go against these rules? If it appears a necessity, a board is suspended pending review. After review, the board might be unsuspended, or might remain suspended. This decision also depends on how the admin(s) of the incriminated board react(s). Often, removing the offending content and warning the board's members is enough.

Ultimately, the board can be deleted - this happened before and can happen again, however in most cases, reasonable diligence will be performed before this irrevocable step is taken.

Re: Official policies - what is and what isn't allowed on Runboard


I have a question, I don't really understand if there is a private forum on a board, with membership by approval, why can't there be "a little bit more skin than on a public forum" pictures? I mean it's MBA for a reason right? I absolutely understand the child pornography and [sign in to see URL]. Is there an official list somewhere with rules? If so, can someone give me the link or e-mail this to me? Thank you.

Well, Thor is THE BOSS of runboard, so what he says is the rules.

However, you can also check here: ]TOS

The moment of truth comes when the "bit of skin" turns into something that's meant to cause physical arounsal. I think that's quite clear, actually.

 emoticon I have always read on here that if you have a 18+ only and warnings all over you could. What if you have a private forum that has a password for 18+? I mean alot of people love to discuss love and need help with many topics on this subject.

Thor i love runboard so not hating heehee i tell everyone bout it! emoticon

as pertaining to warez, I found an official star wars game site containing music downloads from their games, all perfectly legal. would it be a problem to post the link on my board since it is after all approved by them?

yes.

Because the music is copyrighted. But the copyright holder has given PERMISSION or they OWN the material.

Linking to the site would be fine.

But linking to the music files themselves is a grey area (unless they have expressly said its ok)

Do you personally know all of your private forum's authorized members, or do you verify their age by any serious mean?
