    Celebrity Extra Forum Rules

    The Celebrity Extra Forum is dedicated to celebrity news, gossip, humor, inquiries and/or other stuff not necessarily related to what is currently being posted in the Celebrity Photos section. Celebrity Extra is the proper forum for posting images from "social media" sites, e.g., Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

    Do a SEARCH before posting to avoid reposts.

    1. Social Media & Other Content Posts

    a. Thread Titles: Be as informative and descriptive as possible in giving a title to your thread. Use the celebrities' full name, event and/or short description of pic, name of originating website, and date of image. No False Advertising: Any content promised in a thread title must be delivered in the thread. If your post does not contain what is stated, your thread will be trashed.

    b. All other threads where the focus is on specific image or video content are to comply with rule a. above.

    c. Do Not Direct Link or hyperlink pics or video from another site or forum. Do Not use imagecodes from other people/sites. Download and Upload them on your own.

    d. All images and GIFs should be posted as clickable thumbnails; All pics and thumbnails posted must be uploaded to one of our approved imagehosts! Do Not hotlink images, they will be removed![/b]

    e. Do Not simply post a link to social media videos. All videos that cannot be embedded must be posted as a download via one of our Approved Filehosts and include the following:

    - Screencaps
    - File Format
    - File Size
    - Screen Resolution
    - Video Duration​

    2. Banned Content

    a. No images, still or moving, are permitted of anyone under the age of 18, unless they are subordinate or background figures in multi-party or group pictures, are appropriately and modestly dressed, if not fully clothed, and are not the focus of any attention. Moderator discretion applies. If you have any doubts or questions concerning under-18's in images you would like to post, feel free to consult a member of Staff first.

    b. Do not post any images of rape, bestiality, or incest, even if only implied!

    ** Repeated violations of any of these rules could earn you a ban. **

    3. Personal Behaviour and Language

    Anybody making sexually explicit, salacious or suggestive remarks about children under the age of 18 will receive an instant ban! No warnings!

    In appropriate sections on phun.org, images of 18+ year-olds are permitted with full nudity and engaged in sexual activity, real and implied - i.e. pornography! In such cases and places comments of an adult nature are acceptable, although it must be borne in mind that the phun-wide embargo on under-age sex, bestiality, rape and incest, even if only fantasised or implied, applies to words as well as images!

    However, when images are presented of 18+ year-olds in Celebrity Extra, they will be appearing in non-pornographic situations and activities such as public media events, fashion modeling, paparazzi-shot candids, selfies, etc., etc., and observers are expected to display maturity and to reflect the non-sexual nature of the circumstances in any comments and repartee that they indulge in!


    It should be clear from the above that Celebrity Extra is not the place to discover pornographic postings of any kind - look elsewhere if that's what you seek! Comments that do not reflect this non-pornographic nature will invite appropriate, possibly severe Moderation, which may take account of not only words, but also any introduced images, including smilies, or any images present in avatars and signatures!​

    4. General Rules

    a. All discussion and chat in this section will be subject to the Phun.org Personal Conduct Guidelines. Mind your manners and keep your perverse comments to yourself. Most other members do not care to know about your weird proclivities!

    b. Discussion thread titles should have some sort of context describing what is to be found within. Don't be lazy, spell it out!

    c. Do a SEARCH before posting to avoid reposts.

    d. Do not create duplicate threads of image content already found in the Celebrity Photos forum.

    e. This section IS NOT a place for you to dump your collections of favorite celebrities. They will be summarily trashed.

    f. Any other threads with image content should follow the posting guidelines in Section 1.c, d and e.

    g. Pictorials originating from a paysite should not be posted in this forum!

    h. English language only (except for foreign film/publication titles). Non-English alphabets, accents, diacritics, runes and hieroglyphs screw up the search system, and should not be used.

    i. Do not use ALL CAPS for titles, except for acronyms or abbreviations.

    ** Please also read the forum phun.org General Rules / Info. **

    Breaking any of these rules may lead to thread deleting/trashing!
    Persistent violations will lead to a ban!

    Enjoy posting and have phun!

    If this post appears to be too long to read, I urge you to reconsider. Because ignoring it is a bad idea.

    I consider myself to be a fairly tolerant moderator. Yes, I'm a smartass and can be a dick sometimes, but I'm generally forgiving about what people have to say to me or other members because I realize that most members are capable of fighting their own battles. This is how adults operate in their daily lives so I try not to be a white knight on the board until things appear to be spinning out of control.

    Yet lately I've noticed a growing animosity toward some of the women regularly posted in CX and Celeb Photos. This chick is fat, that chick is ugly, this and that chick are fat and ugly. She's a slut. What a whore. Some of the remarks may be vague or contrived, but at the end of the day they still boil down to the same sentiment.

    And I don't like it.

    I'm not a Celeb Section mod. There are several mods who are noted as forum leaders in this section, and in my opinion they do a fine job. But every moderator on this forum has equal billing in every section to do what needs to be done to keep the board running smoothly. My bailiwick is Sexy Videos, a pair of forums that generate between 5 and 10 new pages of content every day.

    So it should interest you to know that I ban members, old and new alike, all the time for violating forum rules concerning imagehosts, filehosts, reposts, bogus thread titles, and a list of other technical infractions that most daily users don't even give a shit about. Which brings me to my point...

    I'm sick of the posts about celebs that are nothing more than trolling. If it's your goal to visit phun with the intention of being disruptive for your own amusement, you should know that this guy is not amused and that I'll no longer tolerate serial fuckwits. If I start to see a pattern to your negative comments I'm just going to simply get rid of you. I have the Phun Personal Conduct Guidelines on my side to justify my actions so any hew and cry about being a fascist or the like will only fall on deaf ears. Breaking the rules is breaking the rules. If I can send someone packing (without comment) for persistently using the wrong imagehost, then sending a troll down the road is a no brainer.

    Bear in mind: A member who only contributes bullshit is not considered a good contributor. Good contributors earn our respect. Dumbass contributors can find another place to sow their nonsense. Who makes that determination, you may ask? Well I do. It's called mod discretion, and each and every one of us employs it every single day.

    One last thing; I'm speaking strictly for myself. I don't expect anyone else on the mod staff to endorse what I've said here, though I suspect they will.

    Thanks for your time.

    Let me put it this way ladies and gents. We are all in favor of good discussions and debates in here and will let a lot of things slide. But if you Think for one second that things go unnoticed Think again we see a lot. We will allow members to have opinions that Points out that they dont like a specific celebrity. That does not mean that we will allow fat, whore or cunt comments. You can criticse a celebrity without using terms like that so dont bother our time with critical posts unless they have comments like that or are trolling or flameing comments. Its up to you as a Community what way you want us to go. Either we try together and clear up our act in here. Hey im not gods best Child. Or we leave it up too J3scribes to have a more firm approach in here. Either way is fine by me.

    J3scribe, you and the other mods are doing a pretty good job of being tolerant and forgiving, don't doubt it for a second. If I was in your shoes, I would be a lot less forgiving and tolerant with certain posters and especially with comments directed at you, that you led slide in the past. So whenever you think you're being strict or harsh, think of my words here and you'll feel better.

    Trolling must be dissuaded once and for all, and I bet there are others who think the same. :2cent:

    I think your message on this thread has been long overdue. Based on some of the posts some people leave, i was starting to fear for the actresses that's been posted here. Some posts like they've been brought up to be nothing but rapists and women beaters. I'm all for the nudity of women, but that doesn't mean i don't have any respect for them. even in sites like these there has to be a certain level of self control, IMHO and I'm glad you stepped up J3scribe. bring down the hammer of justice!

    I've quit reading the comments for some celebrities because I found a lot of the remarks bothered me. Thanks for correcting the problem. I have three daughters and I cringe thinking about one of them reading some of the comments that have been left here.

    "Serial fuckwits" may be the best turn of phrase I've heard in a while. That should probably go in a dictionary somewhere.
