Welcome to the Comic Book Resources Forums, the largest independent set of comic book forums on the entire World Wide Web! Things are generally pretty relaxed around here but there are some guidelines and expectations that you, as a user of the Forums, should be aware of.
Please keep in mind that these are guidelines and that the CBR Forums do not play by any hard and fast rules. Moderator discretion always applies and their decisions are final.
User avatars may be 80x80 pixels and up to 20kb in size, whether animated or not. Accepted file formats for avatars are jpg and gif.
The content of avatars should be kept to a PG-13 and work-place safe rating. If an avatar is deemed inappropriate by a member of the moderating team then further action may take place, depending on the exact content. This may range from a request to change the avatar to immediate replacement of the avatar by a member of the administration and a ban being issued (graphic content only).
Changing Account/User Name
Forum members may make a request to have their account or user name changed. However, it will only change to something that resembles a real name. As a general preference, the CBR Forums encourages the use of real names. Name change requests may be placed in the appropriate thread
To offset any possible legal concerns, Forum members must keep copyright issues in mind during their time at the CBR Forums. No more than three pages of any given issue should be posted at any one time (which should be plenty for review purposes). The posting of links to or about illegally shared comic book content is not allowed.
All forum members are expected to remain civil to each other at all times. Insults will not be tolerated; likewise a certain standard of conversation will be expected. Under no circumstances should any user issue a threat to another forum member. How you say something can matter as much as the content of your posts; you are more than welcome to disagree with anyone else but you must communicate your opinion in a civil and hospitable manner. Flaming, trolling or other such behaviour will not be tolerated.
Moderators come from upstanding and knowledgeable forum members of the CBR Community. It is their role to keep the Forums as a whole running smoothly. Parts of this include keeping discussion flowing, removing inappropriate content and settling disputes. Forum members are expected to remain civil to members of the Moderating team at all times in the same way they are expected to remain civil to each other (cut them a break, they don’t get paid for keeping things running and they’re a nice bunch of people!).
Forum members should only keep one account at any given time; multiple accounts are heavily frowned upon. The Moderating team may merge or ban multiple accounts without warning.
Signatures may consist of text but not images. Please make your signatures relatively small and unobtrusive; likewise the content should be made up of material of a PG-13/work-place safe nature. Inappropriate signatures may be modified or deleted without notice.
Selling items or linking to auctions with the intent of profit (including but not exclusive to eBay) are not permitted. There is a trading thread on the Community Board if you wish to swap items but monetary exchanges are not allowed.
