Copying Guides and Images Is A Serious Offense

Posted by Kelsey Fireheart (Admins) at May 28 2014, 04:22 PM. One comment


I want to warn you all that you cannot copy entire guides, even if it's your own guides or pictures from Central or other sites. You also cannot take or hotlink pictures from their site. For example, don't copy the image url of their images, even though if they are yours and put it in posts on our forum. You WILL get banned on Central or other sites.

In my guides on how to post pictures, I encourage you to use Tinypic.com or photobucket.com .. It was for a good reason. Hotlinking off any site is DISENCOURAGED! Only photo storage servers such as Photobucket.com or Tinypic.com is fine.

Also, when you want to copy over guides that you already written, ask permission from the sites you have posted it on FIRST. Also, we prefer you to write it in your own words. Make it unique if possible.

We are NOT responsible for your actions if you do get banned elsewhere. We already have warned you in our rules NOT to hotlink or copy guides. Please review it again at: http://starsofthespiralforums.com/topic/10024867/1/?x=0#post8257686

Forum Gold & Spamming Comments

Posted by Kelsey Fireheart (Admins) at Apr 5 2014, 01:32 PM. 0 comments

We have noticed that people are spamming comments in posts of various threads. I want to warn you that this is NOT allowed. Please comment when you really want to make a comment. This includes making posts on threads that are irrelevant to the topic. Otherwise you will be warned. Five warnings will eventually get you banned which we do NOT want to do. We want to keep this site happy and easygoing.

Making a topic is right at the click of a button. Just keep in mind that you have to go to a Discussion, or Subforum in order to make one. Also make sure you are posting under the correct Discussion, for example, if you want to talk about a Wizard101 Fansite, you'd post in the (All About Wizard101 Fansites) forum, and no where else.

Rules of the SotS Forum

Posted by Kelsey Fireheart (Admins) at Jan 20 2014, 04:34 AM. 0 comments

We take it seriously when it comes to being polite, being kind and respectful to each other. This is why we set up the following rules. It is to keep the community a safe and friendly place for everyone to be in.


General Forum Rules:

NO Flaming
NO Spamming
NO Bumping
NO Rants
NO Bashing
NO Trolling
NO Hotlinking (Only Photo Image Storage Sites ALLOWED! Photobucket, Tinypic, etc)
NO Insulting

**For those who do not understand what Hotlinking is, it is copying the image url from other sites or people's images and posting it in our forum posts.**


-No Writing Or Posting Of Anything Inappropriate
-NO Posting Your Real Life Information. Name, Location, Phone Number, Email, Date of Birth, etc.
-NO Ads or External Links ALLOWED without Stars of the Spiral's permission. Only OFFICAL fansites are allowed to link to ONLY the official fansites or the official Wizard101/Pirate101 websites.
-You MUST be 13 or above to be able to post on this board. If you are under 13 years old, ask your parents' permission to view and post on this board.


Moderators:
-Only people with the Moderator title are the Official General Moderators of this site. But we also will make all Official Fansiters a Moderator of their own fansite contest, guide and/or help section on the site. Official Fansiters are responsible for creating trends and managing their own section. For Example: Alura will be a Moderator of ArtInTheSpiral's Contest Section where she can make trends for people to post pictures, etc for contests. She is allowed to link back to her site only. Official Fansiters can just ask Kelsey Fireheart or Jack Silversong to make them a Moderator. However, Official Fansiters will NOT have access to the rest of the site.

If any of the moderators behaves in an improper fashion, they will be warned, suspended or possibly banned depending on the severity of the situation. We do not take this lightly.


Contests:
-Only OFFICIAL Fansites can create their own contest trend on this site. Unofficial sites are welcome to post contests on our site as long as they do not post OFF SITE links that leads outside of the site. Any misbehavior will not be tolerated. StarsoftheSpiral as well as Wizard101, Pirate101 or KingsIsle Entertainment Inc are NOT responsible for any of the contest hosts, contests itself, any prizes given or parties and events that are created.


Groups:

DO:
-Create any group you want, even if one has already been made before. The more, the merrier!

DO NOT:
-Ask for something such as in-game items or codes in return for help or anything on this site, you will be warned, suspended or banned depending on severity and how often you break the rules. Also your group will be removed and banned. For example: Give me a hoard pack and I'll help you with a dungeon. I will hatch with you if you give me a code either for an in-game item or crowns. This is NOT allowed.
-Encourage misbehavior in-game and/or on the forums, you will be warned, suspended or banned depending on severity and how often you break the rules. The group will also be removed and banned.

And of course, the guide will be removed. Even if you copy your own guides from other sites, do it at your own risk. You could get banned. We want to encourage you NOT to. We prefer for you to write a new one in your own words with new pictures.
