    Changes to costs, rules and other stuffs

    Hey guys,

    Recent events over the last month or so have prompted some changes.

    Firstly, the costs of running the forum have very slightly reduced but we feel we are under charging people for using the forum. Therefore effectively immediately we are doubling forum subscription fees. I'm sure you will all agree this represents the same value for money as the previous fees.

    The Over 18's forum has been re-branded as it seems the name was sending out the message that top shelf material was OK. That particular forum is now called "Not Safe for Work" and is still a "opt-in" forum. (If you wish to opt into the Not Safe for Work forum, use the contact us link at the bottom of the page). It's not a forum for porn,

    On the rules, rule 10. Images. Do not upload images to VPCUK that you do not have the rights to. (You will be asked for evidence of permission or we will contact the owner direct). There have been a number of attachments uploaded where people didn't have the rights over the images. It is important that when you upload an image to VPCUK that you have rights over that image to effectively grant us the use to show and distribute that image, merely having "for personal use" over an image is not enough. We will soon start the horrid task of going through the 27,080 attachments we currently have on the site checking to ensure they both meet rule 10 and aren't of questionable content. Due to the size of the task, users that have uploaded more than a few attachments they may not have rights over will have all attachments "previously uploaded" deleted and accounts restricted to ensure no more files can be uploaded.

    This doesn't effect those images that have been linked from 3rd party sites. (Though those images still have to be of an "acceptable" nature). If you wish to look through your own attachments to ensure they comply with the above rule, visit http://www.vpcuk.org/forums/profile....ditattachments

    Trolling and member/site disruption can be hard to gauge and therefore it's difficult to have a "concrete set of rules" which cover this subject. Therefore cases of (or where we have impressions of) trolling and member/site disruption will be judged "case by case" by the management team who will come to the final conclusion and act accordingly. (Which will likely result in account restrictions or a temporary/permanent ban from using the site).

    Thanks for reading anyway, sorry the subscription fees are going up

    I stopped reading when he said the subs are going up, I'm outta here, I can't afford that, I have many cars to run.

    In fact I may start a petition to keep the subs as they are.

    If you stop fitting mods you then remove, you'll be able to afford the new subs.
