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.
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.
But a member whose postcount is less than 10 SHOULD NOT
edit the Mod-approved first post of a new thread. A quirk of vBulletin means that doing so will irreversibly destroy the thread!
e. English language only
(except for foreign book/film titles). Non-English alphabets, accents, diacritics, runes and hieroglyphs screw up the search system, and should not be used.
Do not replace any letters in thread titles with non-alphabetic characters such as numerals or symbols.
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 using the numerical equivalent might be confusing.
h. No link-shorteners, link-protectors, or link-anonymizers
(or anything similar). All filehost links must be in clear, and direct to the specified file.
Phun uses an Infraction Points system for minor rules violations. Once you reach 12 Infraction Points, a vBulletin-automated 2 week suspension is imposed.
>> Infraction Points are generally time limited, and will eventually expire. Make sure to read your Private Messages and check your Profile Page for further information.
However, Moderators are not constrained by this Infraction process, and may impose immediate suspensions of any duration at their discretion.
We have a policy regarding stickying threads. Please see THIS
Username color changes take place at the following postcount milestones, 1,500
, 10,000, 20,000!
and 100,000 (free to pick any color except purple
These last three colors refer to Phun-registered Models
, and the site Owner (cayne) and Hoster (ISPrime)
. To see who all these colorful people are, click HERE and scroll down.
Click on "Remember Me?" when logging-in to phun.org, and vBulletin won't log you out if you're inactive for a while (30 mins).
Unhappy/bored with your User Title
(the phrase shown below your Username)? If your postcount is 1500 or more you can personalise it!
Go to "Settings" >> "My Settings" >> "Edit Profile" >> "Custom User Title" >> insert your chosen phrase
. Then click on "Save Changes" (bottom right), and it's done!
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.
The ability to change thread titles (including icons) lapses ten (10) days after originally being submitted. Beyond that you'll need the assistance of a Moderator.

r. FORUM SEARCHING
When wishing to search for a specific sequence of words, names or characters, one should enclose them within double quotes (" "). [NOT single quotes (' ')]
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.
Choosing Advanced Search and opting for Search Titles Only (i.e. Thread titles only) will further refine the search.
