Ok, folks we are extremely easy-going here but there are a few things we'd like to point out before you start posting...

a) U Talk Real Good!
- Use correct grammar & spelling as much as possible i.e. keep the text talk/abbreviations to a minimum. Not all of us are champion texters, lol! And please, please refrain from posting in ALL CAPS unless it is an actual emergency. A little bit in a sentence or two (like the sentence before this one) is fine, but an entire post in all caps gives off a shrill banshee kind of vibe that really turns people off.

b) Spoilers
- TV Shows... Any television show that is finished & no longer airs new episodes (like Stargate: Atlantis) does not need any kind of spoiler alerts. For any show that still has new episodes airing (like Supernatural), there are 3 different scenarios:
• There's a current season discussion thread for every TV show that has it's own section. In these, you can discuss any & everything that has happened from the series premiere up until the last aired episode.
• In some cases, there will be a current season spoiler thread. That's where you put all the juicy details of upcoming/unaired episodes.
• If you want to discuss stuff that doesn't necessarily have to deal with the current season, do so in the previous season discussion thread.
All threads will be clearly marked to avoid confusion but, when in doubt, just ask!

- Movies... Well, we are still working on definitive rules for these. Obviously, any movie that has come out in the last 60 days will need spoiler alerts.
•Down the line, new (as in, not released in movie theaters yet) movies/movie characters may get their own threads. In this case, please keep all story line/plot point discussions in spoiler tags. Filing locations, casting news, release dates, trailers, interviews, upcoming television appearances, anything that isn't integral to the plot of the movie is perfectly fine to post without the tags. After the movie is released, you are free to openly discuss all aspects of it without the tags in that thread.

c) We're Going Streaking!
- Not really, don't worry! This forum does not allow any kind of nudity and/or pornographic materials to be posted. We haven't gotten any notices yet, so everything that's been posted so far is fine. As far as some of the more risque fanfiction goes, don't worry, only links to stories will be posted here. When in doubt, just ask or send a PM.

d) Need Pix
- As of right now, there is no size limit to whatever avatars and banners you use. But, to keep things neat and not too crazy on the eyes, we please ask that you keep your avatars as close to 150x150 pixels as possible and your banners 700x200pixels. If you want info on how to get your banners & avatars rotating (like some of us have) or would like to request a special one, send a PM.

I'd like to add that if you have an issue with someone on this site and you feel it is not being addressed then you can of course come to me or Sam - unless it's with us then you're screwed LMAO No seriously, please feel you can come to us anytime, in fact we'd rather you did before it became a whole blown out of proportion thing.

Please use your common sense as Sam said spoilers for season 5 are a must but that will only be until season 5 has finished airing in the UK seeing as this is a Brit/US site.

Posting Keller will get you banned from this site, try me. LMAO

Feel free to start threads if there's an issue with them we'll let you know.

I would like to mention another rule, sorry.

When you're posting images on the forum, if they're Convention pictures, please ask permission from the owner before using them here. We all like to create our own work and would appreciate being asked before anyone else used our work and so the same rule must apply to other owners.

I know most of us do ask permission before using others work on this site but we must stress that with Convention pictures permission is sought.

I know a lot of Convention goers who stipulate their work is not for reproduction on other forums and would ask you all to honor any such requests.
