Welcome all, to the PPT Music Board! Please read these rules carefully so you understand them, any questions may go to me, any other moderator of this board, or the super mods/admin.

Now, those of you in marching/concert bands probably have heard their band room referred to as a 'holy place'; meaning it stays clean and in good condition. This board is the same way, except you can't leave soda cups in it and create holes in the walls.

Onto the rules:

1. All other forum rules (no flaming, spamming, etc). are also in effect for this board. THIS INCLUDES GETTING OFF TOPIC AND USING THE BOARD AND ITS TOPICS AS A CHAT ROOM (your posts will get deleted if you don't heed that).

2. No template (copy/paste) posting, meaning don't say the same thing over and over again whenever you make a post.

3. Don't post songs that have profane lyrics in this forum. If the words are questionable, I would either not post it or get it approved first.

4. Please be kind when critisizing other people's work if they happen to post their own, self-created songs here. Constructive critisim is good, but don't just say 'That's bad' and leave it at that.

5. Don't link to sites that you can download music illegally from. Be sure that all music you post here is legal.

Strikes can and will be given if you break any of the aforementioned rules. If I forgot something, please tell me (or if you're a moderator here, edit this post). The strike policy is as follows:

Strike Policy

These forums operate a system to dissuade members from abusing the forums and/or each other. Abuse can take many forms and some of us have had first hand experience of this.

The Moderators of this forum have been empowered with the ability to award 'strike' points to members who don't follow the Terms & Conditions of the forum and any other general etiquette expected when taking part in this Community.

Therefore, if members fail to heed the Terms & Conditions of the forum, as we have seen in the past, or ignore requests from Moderators, they can expect to be jumped on.

The Moderators do not have to tell you if you have been awarded a 'strike', but they will regularly report any abuse of the Forum to the Administrators who will take action against repeat offenders.

Incase you're wondering just what might await you if you don't abide by the Terms & Conditions, then there is a simple guide below.

One strike will bring your future actions under close scrutiny by the Moderating team.

Two strikes will interest the Administrators, who will then pay special attention to you, and not in a good way.

If you manage to get three strikes, then you will find yourself banned from the forum for a set amount of time. This amount of time will depend on what you have done to earn those strikes in the first place.

Each strike thereafter, up to a maximum of six strikes will get you banned, again for a certain length of time to be determined by the Administrator dealing with you. When you reach six strikes, you're history. No discussion, no argument. The Administrator's decision is final.

Serious offences against the Forum or other users will result in an immediate ban.

All strikes will be wiped at the end of every month, apart from those with six strikes who will be permanently banned from the forums. The reasons for the strikes being awarded will be kept on file for future reference.

The vast majority of members will never get a strike as they conduct themselves perfectly respectably on the forum. The odd double post or less than three word response is not going to get you a strike. You will get a polite reminder from the Mods that you may want to carefully consider for next time, but if you respond badly to that advice, then they are perfectly within their rights to award you with a strike because of it.

We understand that people who are new to the board may make mistakes without realising it, so minor offences for those that have been here for a week or less will also be given the benefit of the doubt.

Thanks for reading.
The PPT Moderator Team.

Oh, and all topics will get split once they hit 10 pages, like in the rest of the forum.

Now that you know the drill, go and have fun!

Yes, I'm still alive...still alive...
