Forum Rules & TOS
« on: February 11, 2020, 07:03:47 AM »
Forum Rules
A set of guidelines to keep the community satisfied
  • No spamming
    You don't like spam in your mailbox and neither do we!  We do not track post count so trying to inflate it with one-word or otherwise non constructive comments is useless and makes real information more difficult to find
  • Work-safe materials only!
    Posted materials must be work-safe. (This includes text!).  To post non work-safe materials link instead of embedding and warn by prefixing with "(NSFW)".  When in doubt better be safe and link instead of embedding
  • Sunrise Rule [Temporary]
    Usernames of members from the old forum are protected under this rule.  If your current username has been registered by someone else make a request here and we will change the account's password to one you request via Forum or Discord PM.  This means that if you wrongly register a protected username your account will be given away!
    If your username is taken please refrain from registering an alt and wait for the Admins to give you access to the account in question
  • Create Usernames Please
    Usernames that exactly match official Touhou characters or terminology (for example, "Reimu", "Reimu Hakurei", "Marisa", "Marisa Kirisame") are reserved. Variations on their names are fine to use.
    Your username is your chance to come up with something creative, we don't need a 5th "Reimu Hakurei"!
  • Use the correct subforum
    It's easier for everyone to find threads they are interested in that way.  If you believe a thread is in the wrong subforum use the Report functionality to notify the staff to move it (it helps to include the subforum you believe to be the correct one)
  • Check sticky topics
    If it's your first time posting in a particular subforum please check its stickies, chances are someone has asked a similar question before and the answer is just a few clicks away.
  • Proper English helps get the message across
    There are users from around the world and for many English is a second language, so slang might not translate well.  There is a built-in spell checker, please use it before submitting your posts
  • Bandwidth discretion
    Please refrain from embedding images larger than 640x480px and 150k per image and thumbnail or link to them instead.  Large embeds slow page load times, especially on large threads.  Additionally please be mindful of users on metered connections who are paying by the megabyte to download images they might have little interest in.
  • Image hosting
    Please do not embed images directly from other sites unless it's your server(s), instead save them and use a free image hosting service.  The web constantly changing and broken links benefit no-one.
  • Attachments
    This forum supports attaching files directly to posts, feel free to use this to share replays, code, scripts and other data.  Attaching images is not allowed (unless images are related to code/scripts/data) since images can easily be hosted externally on your own servers or a image hosting utility.  The RP section is exempt from this restriction (file size limits still apply)
  • No linking to copyrighted or illegal materials
    No posting links to websites which distribute copyrighted content.  Constructive discussion about said websites is fine though, just no links or advertising please!. 
    Secondly no linking to or discussion of websites whose content is considered illegal in the country in which this website is hosted from currently (United States).
Rules subject to change
  • Communities change over time, if you believe something isn't addressed properly or needs to be added or removed please let us know by creating a thread in Resurrection Butterfly.
  • Punishments are not retroactive, meaning that if a new rule is instated all "violations" prior to its creation will be forgiven.
  • Non-punishment actions can apply retroactively, for example if a user profile violates the new rules it can be edited by the Staff but the user won't be punished for it.
  • You agree to follow the latest revision of these rules if you wish to continue using the website.

Terms of Service
Rules for keeping the service out of trouble
  • You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.
  • Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.
  • You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.
  • You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username and display name. We advise that you keep the name appropriate as the administrators reserve the right to change account names. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.
  • After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and appropriate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inappropriate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.
  • Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.
  • Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
  • Use of the service and its subsidiaries is a privilege, not a right and the staff reserves the right to remove anyone and anything at any time for any reason.
