Discussion in 'Feedback' started by Phillip, Jun 12, 2003.
Yes, cinniman seats.
I think the rules are just fine. People seem to be thinking that they're really oppressive or something. But in fact, the most common complaint I hear about MC is that they don't kick people out FAST enough for their tastes. Every attempt at grace is given here, and it's only the consistently, deliberately belligerently ones that have anything to worry about. Again, it's just common sense.
Now if you'll excuse me, suddenly I'm feeling hungry.
pushing the rules...
Common sense is the key? In that case, the doors around here will remain locked!
We're gonna go through plenty o' Bounty around here. It's common sense on a roll.
I AIN'T PUTTIN' NO COMMON CENTS UP THERE!!! THEM'S DIRTY!
How is it that a discussion on MC forum rules and courtesies about staying on topic gotten so far off topic? (gentle nudge)
hey phil, if i feel like making fun of myself, would that be okay?.....
I'm stepping in the middle of this silliness to coax members to pose real questions and post the off-topic or humorous comments in another thread. Some people may have real concerns that are getting lost. Thanks.
Much work went into the guidelines to make them simple, friendly and to the point. Once again, these rules are more of a helpful guide than a rigid wall of don'ts. Nobody is in jeopardy of being kicked off the board if they slip up. Such cases are very rare and such action is never taken lightly. I don't mean to lessen the importance of the guidelines. I just felt the need to put it in perspective. These are the same unspoken principles moderators have always used. The intention here is to be helpful rather than heavy.
See? Amazing isn't it?
Hey everybody, just be nice and treat your friends here like you would like to be treated, as well
Politeness is not so serious...IT IS NATURAL

Our forum rules have been updated with a new guideline concerning DVD/VCD/VHS trades and promotion.
If anyone feels like a member of our forum is breaking these guidelines in a post, feel free to quote the above rule. Notify a moderator as neccessary if such behavior continues.
If you have any comments on the new video guideline, please post them here.
Isn't that breaking confidentiality or something? Sending the records on, I mean.
Everything on the forum is public so bringing such posts to our attention doesn't violate any confidence. We appreciate certain freedoms on Muppet Central and any bootlegged media could potentially jeopardize the forum. Not to mention that such actions outlined by Phillip are illegal under copyright law. We will usually see the items first, but it's always good to have some help.
I think it's a good move to make those rules.
Just so everything's clear and random arguments/disputes don't pop up, what IS allowed to be traded, video-wise?
My opinion is that if you want to trade tape-for-tape (on whatever format you prefer) without any money involved, then it's more acceptable from Henson's perspective. We are just trying to prevent people from selling their personal VHS/VCD/DVD material here on the forum or promoting their eBay auctions trying to make a fast buck off homemade, unofficial releases.
Phew...I thought you were banning tape-for-tape trading of unreleased Henson items (IE something like, say, Muppets go to the Movies). The 'unreleased' comment kinda threw me off.
I think its a very fair rule and most of us go up in arms when someone does that anyway. Now instead of a long debate we can just quote the rule.
Separate names with a comma.
