TALK @ - Official Rules and Regulations

1. Keep the discussions within topic. Specific boards cater to specific posts; avoid posting off-topic/prohibited content. Don't be surprised if you get banned, you've been forewarned.

2. Respect each other's opinions. Avoid fighting and profanity; Any signs of destructive criticisms/arguments will be altered/deleted. PM the mods to mediate if in case.

3. Redundant threads will be merged (or deleted) without warning. Use the search function of the main PhilMusic site to look for previous existing threads.

4. Post appropriately. Avoid creating thread titles that are incomplete or off-topic. ALL CAPS on title and/or content, unnecessary poll use as well as exaggerated font sizes or txt/jeje speak are prohibited.

5. Piracy is not allowed here. No warez, cracks, serials or illegally obtained copyrighted content! Links to content of a questionable nature, asking for, offering, or asking for help/helping to process such content in any way or form is not tolerated. Posts of this nature will be locked and the IP of the poster logged.

6. Use common sense and good taste in selecting images in general. Keep the size of avatars/personal images down to accommodate dial-ups where large images can have slow download times.

7. No impersonating. Do not post using a false email address or false identity, including those of other forum participants or public figures. To anybody caught doing this, expect a message from the PhilMusic Admin.

Classifieds: Rules & Regulations

Please consolidate ALL classifieds related posts (FS,FT,LF et al) within a single thread. Redundant or multiple posts would be merged (or deleted) without notice.

ALL CAPS on title and/or content is prohibited. Aside from being referred to as shouting, it is definitely hard to read. Exaggerated font sizes are prohibited as well.

Excessive use of emoticons is prohibited. Same reason as above - it is hard to read the content with too much emoticon.

Do not make the thread a chat room. Avoid irrelevant posts. No threadjacking.

Bidding is not allowed. Post somewhere else if you wish to do so. PhilMusic is not a place for it.

Regularly bump your thread (1 bump per day). Inactivity of the thread for 10 days will be deleted. This is to reduce traffic and only show threads that are active to avoid inquiries such as "sir, available pa?"

Please change the thread title to "DONE/SOLD/FOUND/TRADED" when you have successfully bought/sold/traded an item, so we can easily monitor active threads.

Be sure to check the DO's & DON'Ts below. Remember to post properly.

Threads with such violations will be locked/deleted without notice. Don't want your thread locked/deleted? Follow simple instructions.
