LoudCity welcomes you to our community forums. By posting in the forums, you are agreeing to the rules set forth here and any future amendments. It is your responsibility to periodically check these rules for changes and amendments.

Anti Spam System:
We use humans to detect spammers. You must post in the Welcome thread upon registration, and you must post your station name. Any users who do not post within 24 hours in the Welcome thread will be deleted. Users may not view or post in any other thread until their Welcome thread post is approved.

Advertising:
Advertising products or services in the LoudCity forums is forbidden, with the following exceptions...
1) Broadcasters may post information about their station in the "Station Plugs" forum. We request that broadcasters keep all future posts related to their station contained in the same thread they started whenever possible.
2) Signatures may contain information regarding your affiliations, products or services (See signature size guidelines below)
All other posts made for the purpose of advertising (at the sole discretion of LoudCity staff) will be locked, edited, and/or removed.

Flaming:
The LoudCity community is a friendly place for broadcasters and listeners to openly discuss all things related to internet radio and streaming. When a user insults another user or group of users, this destroys the environment of the community. Topics that deteriorate into flaming will be locked.

Privacy:
Users who post another member's personal details or excerpts from private correspondence with another member without their permission could be banned. Any threads or posts violating this will be deleted.

Signature Size:
Please keep signature sizes down to 3 lines of text, or small banner size images. LoudCity staff can remove any and all signature content for any reason they see fit, even if it does meet these guidelines. Examples of signatures which may be removed are signatures that promote competitors, contain insults or racial comments, are too large, or anything deemed to be against the overall image that LoudCity wishes to portray.

Viruses, Malware and Adware:
Posting links leading to malware, adware, a virus, etc is forbidden. Violators will be banned from the forums without prior warning and the thread will be edited or deleted accordingly. As a warning to our members, always exercise caution when following links - just as you would on other sites.

Objectionable Content:
Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist in nature, or promoting illegal activity, is not permitted on these forums. Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight.

Enforcement:
LoudCity staff cannot monitor the contents of posted messages 24 hours a day. As such, we sometimes depend upon the community as a whole to inform us when other members are violating these rules. You must also recognize that we cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any action is taken. Members who violate the rules of these forums will be warned by PM and/or banned. The severity of the action is at the sole discretion of LoudCity staff. If you are banned, that means you are no longer welcome on these forums and any new threads/posts you make will automatically be removed, regardless of their nature.
