    Welcome to AudioSEX, you can now proudly call yourself a member!

    We thought it's good idea at this point to introduce you to how this forum operates. But first, let's talk about what you can't do at AudioSEX:
    • Linking to or trading Warez is strictly prohibited, however links to free content available at AudioZ are allowed.
    • Rating Spam is considered as abuse of our rating system.
    • Strong language and profanity is allowed only when not directed towards members of our community.
    • We do not allow political discussions because they always end up with fights. you can read further about it here.
    • Only one account per user is allowed
    Your very first post is going to be moderated, just to prove you're not a spammer. We will not alter it, unless it's in violation with our rules, promise.

    Search Before Attempting to Make a Post
    Please search the forums before posting, our internal search engine may not always give you the results you're looking for. In that case, use Google like this:
    [search entry] site:audiosex.pro

    Choose Right Categories
    Be sure to post in correct category. It's not always easy to categorize your thread. When unsure, post it to Lounge and moderators will move it, in case it clearly belongs elsewhere.

    Comments
    We're strongly against censorship, your posts may be edited by moderators to fix formatting, rename thread, or remove violating paragraphs, but even criticism of anything forum related will not be censored, as long as it's in full compliance with rules.

    Solved / Best Answer
    If you posted a question and got an answer, please mark the most best one (obviously) as Best Answer. Your thread will not be closed in the process, don't worry.

    Avatars must be within 150x150px and not larger than 200KB

    UserName Change
    If you wish to change your username, you can ask one of our moderators

    Quotation of Violating Comments
    Please do not quote comments that you believe are violating our forum rules. Use Report button instead.

    Ratings
    Each and every of your posts can be rated, keep that in mind when posting. More positive ratings gives you benefits - for 250 likes you'll also get a trophy. On the other hand, once your posts receive 5 or more negative ratings it's automatically hidden.
    You can also rate other people's posts. For that, use one out of 12 ratings:

    Positive:
    Like
    Agree
    Funny
    Winner
    Interesting
    Love it
    Useful
    Creative

    Neutral:
    Disagree

    Negative:
    Dislike
    Nasty​

    All your ratings (especially negative or neutral) should be meaningful - so when you're asked to provide reasons for such rating, you should have one. Giving out lots of negative ratings for no obvious reason can get you into trouble. You don't have to rate any posts, it's completely voluntary.


    Warning System
    When a member violates our rules, moderator will increase that member's warning level, which maximum level is 5 points.

    Depending on how hard was the violation, member will receive according amount of warning points as follows:

    0-points - Content rejection
    Includes: Offtopic discussion, duplicate posts, topics in wrong category, more than two comments by the same author in a row (merging posts)

    0-points - Dishonored content
    Includes: Flat-earth theories, non-political conspiracy theories, questionable statements about increasing fidelity without providing evidence (ex. power cords make audible difference)

    1-points
    Includes: Non-satirical trolling, warez linking, quoting violative comments, political discussions outside Unplugged, excessive strong language towards non-member

    2-points
    Includes: Public insults towards member or staff, strong language towards member unless satirical, labeling anyone using a offensive stereotype, racism, abuse of rating system.

    3-points:
    Includes: Insults towards staff.

    Immediate ban
    Includes: Incitement to violence, stalking, doxing, spam, repeated violations

    We emphasize that warnings are not subject for argument, members receive objective explanation with warning notification and there should not be any further discussion on this matter, whether they agree with that warning or not.

    I would also like to answer some general questions that our member @Nick12 has asked me.

    A: you can simply put the @ symbol in front of member's name, like this - @Nick12,
    mention_someone.jpg
    or you can use the Quote / Multi Quote link above every post.

    A: you can read about it in detail at wikipedia, but in general - you don't even need to think of them, because we have a toolbar in the form where you write your comment/post which manages text styles for you without understanding bbcodes, that used to customize your text:
    bbcodes_explained.jpg
    so you type some text, select it, push B (for example) on the toolbar and your text gets bold.

    A: Remove Formatting is used to remove any customizations that we've just covered above.
    for example, we select the text we've just bold in example above, press Remove Formatting icon and your bold text is normal again.
