    Forum Rules

    Thank you for reading these updated forum rules. We at ThundercatsLair.org are not too keen on rules ourselves so these will be kept short and to the point. I assure everyone that there is nothing overtly strict here!

    The ThunderCats Fan Art Thread Conduct


    Before creating/replying to threads, you must accept and adhere to the following rules and regulations:
    • Refrain from posting inappropriate or offensive artwork (sexual and/or violent).
    • Refrain from spamming or frequent advertising.
    • This is primarily a ThunderCats art forum but we do allow you to display your other art too.
    • Posts are liable for moderation if they do not adhere to these rules and regulations.
    • We here at ThunderrCats.org are not liable for Image theft. You post your work at your own risk.

    General

    -Please be polite and courteous in your posts and do not insult other people. We are a very friendly bunch and like to keep it that way. Sometimes new people to the forum do make mistakes, so please refrain from jumping on them and finger pointing.

    -Please make sure you post your thread (s) in the correct forum.

    -Avoid back to back posting. The only exceptions to back to back posts is in the Fan Fic and Fan Art forums and if your replying to a thread 24 hours after your previous post.

    -Image size is not always something we are overly strict on, but please resize your images when you can so the forum flows better and we don't end up with a threads width increasing dramatically. It makes browsing the threads more unpleasant for other users. As a guideline, try to make your images width no more than 500 pixels.

    -If you have any problems please pm a moderator or admin who will be happy to help you.


    Post Contents


    -We are not prudes here, but we believe there is a time and a place for adult content (whether that be strong language, nudity or violence) and a cartoon forum isn't the place for it. We do not tolerate any indecent content of any kind on the forum. Basically if it wouldn't have happened or been said in the Thundercats cartoon, then it doesn't belong on the forum.

    -Please be careful of posting links or content from outside sources such as links to other sites, YouTube videos and myspace pages. A lot of these contain content that isn't allowed on this site. Please preview anything you want to share with others before posting, to make sure it doesn't break any of the forum rules.

    -Please do not offer or link to any illegal bootlegged content of any kind at all. This includes VHS Videos, DVD's, VCD's, CD's or cassettes. It also extends to photocopied comics, annuals, novels or reproduction pieces of any kind.


    Statues and Customs


    - We don't allow any solicitation of unlicensed kits/commissions for statues, toys or other copyrighted merchandise on the forums. We certainly encourage sculptors and artists to show their pieces off. You are welcome to display commissions from your personal collection, but please do not discuss where or how you bought them as advertising and trading non licensed products is not allowed.

    - Sculptors and artists may show pieces they are working on which are a new or original creation, which are created for a licensed company or which are for non-commercial display. Nobody should advertise or solicit unlicensed pieces they are creating. While we do not encourage the purchase of unlicensed product, what members do outside of public discussion has nothing to do with us.

    - If you've commissioned somebody to create a custom toy or statue for you and you wish to show WIP, final products etc. you are welcome to do so here. However please do not discuss the origin of said product.

    ThundercatsLair respects the copyright holders and supports development of new licensed products. With the developing Hard Hero statue line, we feel we should be much clearer on the rules.


    Marketplace Content


    -ThundercatsLair.org is in no way responsible for any transactions that take part via our forums. Any trades done are stictly at your own risk.

    -We do not directly intervene in any disputes. We will only ensure that the forum remains a pleasant place to visit for all our members and if we feel an individual is spoiling things for others in any way we will take action.

    -Please do not offer or link to any illegal bootlegged content of any kind at all. This includes VHS Videos, DVD's, VCD's, CD's or cassettes. It also extends to photocopied complete comics/annuals/novels or reproduction pieces of any kind. If you are referencing a particular page or image of a comic in your post etc.. then that IS allowed.

    -We often discuss open and closed auctions on the toy forum. It's perfectly ok to offer your opinion on how much something is worth and whether you think the auction closing bid is value for money. However we do not tolerate harrassment of sellers, such as calling them scalpers or scammers.


    Marketplace Guidelines:


    -Buyers: Make sure you ask for as much information as possible about an item. This includes the condition, pictures of item, shipping cost, payment methods accepted and if the seller has any kind of return policy. Also make sure you keep all email or private message correspondance to refer back to if need be.

    -Sellers: We insist that all items traded through the forums should be sent by a tracked and insured mail service. If your a seller and you do not send an item by insured mail then it will be down to you to refund the buyer should the item not arrive. Insurance isn't that much extra in many cases so there really isn't any reason not to use it. Also make sure you keep all email or private message correspondance to refer back to if need be.

    -In some cases a staff member of ThundercatsLair.org might act as a mediator to help solve any disputes. However this is totally down to the discretion of ThundercatsLair.org staff and depends on the situation at hand.

    The Great Void:

    This forum is designed to keep any political or controversial content under one roof. However this forum is not for posting extremely violent or explicit sexual content! If you think the thread will become heated then it belongs here.

    The Great Void forum is an hidden forum and only those who request to have access will be able to view it. If you would like to be able to gain access to this forum, please send a PM to either Manny or Mannyscollectibles
