General Topics & Replies Rules
- Use the Search function before you are starting any topic! Similar topics will be merged or deleted.
- Do not start "listing-topics", which only invites short replies. Depending on the state of the topic (has it developed some discussion ground) we will decide whether just to weed it out or move it all together to the Slowchat Fiesta.
- Write a descriptive topic title, which clearly explains what your question/problem is. Use the formats for topic title provided in HK entertainment rules to all entertainment sections.
- Explain further in your first post what you want to ask.
- State your own opinion in your topic if you aren't asking for advice.
- If possible ask posters come up with an explanation or to state reasons.
- Start the topic with good information about the artist. Add things such as recent pictures, useful links, movies/series, etc.
- If your topic is an a continuation of an archived thread, Pls provide the link(s) to the old threads.
- Use the Youtube-tag to post up videoclips, trailers. Only 1 youtube embedded video per post. The rest just leave in links.
- Use the Spoiler-tag to hide spoilers.
- Give good answers and if possible find external articles whenever it's needed to backup your statement.
- Do not flame or offend other members. You will receive warning points if you break the rules.
- Stay on topic and write constructive posts, something that is really useful or meaningful.
- Don't give short replies, reply with a reason or argument.
- Posting the same advice or suggestion which is posted before is not allowed.
- Do NOT put links to illegal software, movies, sexual, racist or any material that is frowned upon.
- Generally, chats should be posted in Chillin Lounge Room. However, chitchats can be allowed if put in spoilers and if they're not "over the top". If a topic has like 10 chitchat posts after eachother, it will be de-spammed. In short, occasional offtopic chitchats in long running threads will be forgiven, as long as it doesn't get too much. If you put some interesting info before chitchatting, it would help a lot already.
Special Entertainment Section Rules
- Make sure that the picture hasn't been posted before. Always check to avoid repost.
Thumbnails are preferred. If you want you can upload the pictures in our GALLERY.
- When you take pictures from other sites, make sure it's allowed to copy and post it at AF.
- Only 3 big images per post is allowed. The rest should be in links only OR in thumbnails. Thumbnails limited to 10 per post. Anything more than this would be considered picture spam. Same rule applies even if you use the spoiler tags or whether the images are from same set or different from each other. To be plain & simple : 3 big images + 10 thumbnails + any no. of image links per post ONLY.
On Quoting Posts:
- Just leave the headers of very long posts..no point in quoting a whole 1000-word post.
- DO NOT QUOTE IMAGES. This only adds up to the number of pictures which causes slow page-loading for people who do not use broadband. Remove the [img] tag or the whole image-link.
Download Related Posts:
-The entertainment forum is for discussion about the movie/tv shows only. No download questions nor requests are allowed. Those questions should be in the Download section.
- It is allowed to post song Mp3, short clips like Mv/commercial inside the Entertainment Section, all other links will be deleted.
- When posting other languages, please post up the English translation too.
- Posting up someone else translation or articles, always provide the source-link and credit the original submitter/translator. Also only post it up when you are sure that you are allowed to do that.
Example threads : Jang Ri In -vs- Boa, It Started with a Kiss -vs- Devil Beside You
- Those threads are ok to be posted in the entertainment sections as long as there are good reasons for the choice made. Please make good informative start posts so replies will also be good and informative.
- If your topic will only answer to one-liners like : "I love Boa!" or "ISWAK is the best", please start your topic in POLL ROOM section.
