1. We had some issues with updating / uploading the avatars. We _think_ we have fixed the problem. Please try it for yourself and see if you can change your avatar (if you want a new one that is :)) Otherwise, please keep reporting problems in the official thread. Thank you! :)

General Policy/Information

    General Policy/Information

    a. Members are allowed only ONE USER ACCOUNT on phun. (Exceptionally, suspended users are permitted a temporary second account to PM a Mod/Admin, but using the second account for any other
    purpose will result in the original suspension period being doubled!)

    b. The first 10 submissions by all new members will be Moderated, which means they will remain invisible until approved by a Moderator.

    c. If a new member edits a subsidiary post (reply) that's been approved by a Moderator in an existing thread, it will become invisible again until re-approved.

    d. English language only (except for foreign book/film titles). Non-English alphabets, accents, diacritics, runes and hieroglyphs should not be used.

    e. Do not replace any letters in thread titles with non-alphabetic characters such as numerals or symbols.

    f. DATES: Conventions on presenting dates vary around the World, which occasionally leads to confusion. As an international Forum we're certainly not going to mandate a specific approach,
    but we recommend using abbreviated English months (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec) where the positioning of the the numerical equivalent might be confusing.

    g. No link-shorteners, link-protectors, or link-anonymizers (or anything similar). All filehost links must be in clear, and direct to the specified file.

    h. Phun uses an Warning Points system for minor rules violations. Once you reach 12 Warning Points, an automated 2 week suspension is imposed.

    >> Warning Points are generally time limited, and will eventually expire. Make sure to read your Private Messages and check your Profile Page for further information.
    i. However, Moderators are not constrained by this Warnings process, and may impose immediate suspensions of any duration at their discretion.

    j. We have a policy regarding stickying threads. Please see THIS thread.

    k. Username color changes take place at the following postcount milestones, 1,500, 3,000, 6,000, 10,000, 20,000, 30,000, 50,000 and 100,000 (free to pick any color except purple, red and green).
    These last three colors refer to Phun-registered Models, Moderators and Admins, and the site Owner (cayne) and Hoster (ISPrime).

    l. Click on "Stay logged in" when logging-in to phun.org, and XenForo won't log you out if you're inactive for a while.

    m. Unhappy/bored with your User Title (the phrase shown below your Username)? If your postcount is 1500 or more you can personalise it!

    n. Usernames are important identifiers, so we don't permit changes at will. However, if a username becomes an embarrassment or a burden, contact an Admin.

    o. AWARDS banners

    a. The Stars ~ http://forum.phun.org/showthread.php?t=1538701 (currently disabled)

    b. 10 Years Of Phun ~ http://forum.phun.org/showthread.php?t=1544162

    c. Other Awards that hopefully will be self explanatory! Ask a Mod or the Award holder if you're not sure. :)

    When wishing to search for a specific sequence of words, names or characters, one should enclose them within double quotes (" "). [NOT single quotes (' ')]

    examples :-

    Title of video-clip or photo-set > "Making out with Fred" (use double quotes) - should find only instances of that specific phrase

    Name of Model/Celebrity > "Jane Smith" (use double quotes) - should find only instances of Jane Smith, and NOT every instance of Jane and/or Smith!
    And similarly, a Model's name and initial(s), such as "Anna AJ", "Elle D" or "Nika N", for example, can be enclosed in double quotes to help narrow down the field of search somewhat.

    Clicking "More... (Advanced Search)" will provide options to further refine the search.​
