Welcome! --> (Silver Moon's Rules & Regulations)

Postby Silver Moon on Mon Feb 26, 2007 10:04 am

Hello Fellow Japan/Sylvian fans!

Greetings! And a big warm welcome from us to the Japan/Sylvian website and forum! I hope you enjoy yourself here! First, I will let you know the advantages of what you can do here.

- You can upload any pictures you have relating to Japan/David Sylvian in the photo gallery!
- You also have your own photo gallery where you can upload pictures of yourself, your dog-an empty soda can... Whatever you want!
- You can also rank pictures if you like.
- Create your own polls.
- Chat with other members online in the chat box!
- Upload your own avatar, or use one in the avatar gallery.
- Relax and swing while watching a video from our Video Player! (Registered members only)
- Don't fret- We are a very friendly crew! Whether you have noob questions, obscure alternatives-- I mean questions, or goofy comments... It's cool!

__________

As with every board, there are rules. I would really appreciate it if you follow them. (Generic rules are in the "Facts and Terms" post of this same thread)

1. No flaming - A little teasing is ok- But seriously nasty posts will be taken off the boards immediately... Along with the poster.

2. No flaming Japan/David Sylvian - Criticism is fine, but if you have just signed up to rag on them (Which I can't even fathom) Your butt will be out of here before you can even say "Get the h*ll out."

3. No Offensiveness - No explicit junk. Please try to keep the language to PG-13, and don't post any offensive pictures. (If you have to post an explicit picture, for example, say you want to post Japan's cardboard sword, link to it in a post, and make sure to warn people that they may find it offensive)

4. No stupid typing - In other words, don't type like you only have 5 keys on your keyboard. "U" isn't "You," "bcuz" isn't "because" and It's much easier to just type "My" then "Mai." Also... L337 is completely BANNED for its extreme annoyance. --> But don't worry- Typo's are forgiven!

5. No gigantic signatures - We all love signatures. I love signatures. But please try to keep them at a decent size. I would say no bigger then 150h X 600w... Though I doubt you'll be kicked off if it happens to be 151 pixels high. Also, make sure to keep your avatars 100 x 100 or less.

6. No soliciting - If you just signed up here to push 'Viagra', Weight-Loss pills or something else... You won't find any customers here. Don't even bother signing up because I will delete you before you know what hit you. And as for you porno people... Just leave... Forever.

7. Engish Only - Please keep this forum English only. If you would like to type to others in a different language, please use our handy-dandy private messaging system!

8. No obsessing - ... Just kidding.

9. Have Fun! - This is what this is here for! Have fun! Talk about whatever you want! (As long as it's in the right category) Obsess over whatever you want to! Music, Artwork, Items... Er... Members...


Thank you again for signing up! Enjoy yourselves,

OK, I doubt I'll ever type it but can I ask what L-3-3-7 is??? I swear text messaging and gaming will make our kids illiterate!

Hey there Proggrl!

L337 $P34|< ... Otherwise known as "Leet Speak" is used widely among Emo's, Scene kids, Goths-Preps, and other poser-like teen cliques. Most teens who use L337 speak are within the ages of 12 - 20... The actual word Leet is a spin-off of the word "Elite." The purpose of L337 Speak is still unknown--However, there are some theories on the purpose of its use: A secret language, to show-off some super computer-creativity skillz, or to show their prized teen-dom by being as irritating as possible.

Here is an example of L337 Speak:

|)4\/!|) $Y|\/!4|\| !$ @ 7074||Y 4\/\/3$0/\/\3 |)00|)

Would translate to:

David Sylvian is a totally awesome dude.

G3|\|7|3/\/\3|\| 74|<3 []D0|4|20!|)$

Would translate to:

Gentlemen Take Polaroids

--> And there is L337 Speak! ... Hopefully you know now why I don't want it anywhere NEAR a 500 mile radius of the forum!!! ;-)
