    So it means 99% of all fan forums should be closed, same as the facebook fanpages and other internet sites....

    Instead of beeing happy that people share materials and get to know the artists, someone decided it's better when people can't see what's going on and can't make "promo" for artists with clips etc.... yea, it sure will help the artists...

    Suggestion, maybe stupid one, and maybe it's already late but... if this forum (or at least some sections) were private and only members with some valid posts could see it... just to prevent google search from seeing these sections.

    oh it's not stupid someone already suggested this and it might be a solution but I don't know if it works or not... Riccardo is the one who has to decide about this...

    I posted it because I needed to get the attention of the members here. I also notified all the mods about this from all sections.

    The point to take away from all this is to realize that if we do not put up these warnings and stop illegal postings, this forum could be shut down. No matter how stupid it all may seem to you and me, or how much of a headache it might be, it has to be done.

    If someone wants to share a video or images, simply link to it for now. People can still see them, then. We have to adapt for a while until things are fixed. I don;t understand though why we are getting this headache and not other forums!? They must have Adsense account too, I figure!

    Just be good and play along for a while until this is cleaned up and Ricc gets his google account back! I'm pretty sure we can live with it for a while, if people are learning to live without limbs. . . .

    I think it would be superfluous. Because there are so many people on the AlizéeAmerica Forum, for example from THIS forum too. Okay, I also have an account there, but I don't really use it (don't like those people and so on...), but there are others who use their accounts very often and share everything... immediately. So Google will find those items later too.

    But I don't understand why we should hide some things about Lili from people... Anyway, who really care about her, she/he will search for forums, fansites, anything. I think the biggest problem is Lili's songs on Youtube. And there are some idiots with their FB page who are sharing these stupid videos all the time... For example the new songs too, it's okay but then share the OFFICIAL video from the vevo page, at least... -.-" And I don't understand why some people need to share everything all the time. Why do they want to upload the same video again and again... ahhhh

    I doubt it has anything to do with her, I think it's only about the copyright in general and I guess it's only because of stupid google and Riccardo's account...

    Ok, got it. So we have to do all we can to "survive" now.
    So to clarify it a bit, can you tell me please where is the line of what is possible now and what forbidden?

    1) photos posted directly on forum using "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" option (file is here on the forum)

    2) photos/videos uploaded on site like imagashack/youtube and then the picture/video is posted to the forum (file is not hosted here but is visible directly here)

    3) photos/videos uploaded on site like imagashack/youtube and then only the link is posted (file is not hosted here and to see it one has to visit a site where it is via link from this forum)

    4) it's forbiden to post anything (even link) that could lead to some "illegal" stuff (file can't be hosted anywhere, the link from this forum has to lead to offical source only)

    If it's copyright, then you have to link it to that website of the owner, etc. You still go ahead and make your post and simply link the website of the images. . .

    If the video has copyrights, and those rights have been ignored, then you cannot post it here. You can simply link to it, though.

    Quote Originally Posted by Jordy View Post

    That's fine. Except that if it is a file YOU uploaded and it has copyright issues, you cannot post it here: if it's a fan vid that you have not uploaded to youtube, you can share the link for downloading. If you upload it to youtube, and the song is not free license to use in your vid, then they will probably mute it, like they did with one of my vids, "She's like the Wind" . . the bunch of dumb asses! Either way, just link to it, and that way we can see the vid and hear the song, and let google/youtube worry about it

    Quote Originally Posted by Jordy View Post

    YES! Absolutely NO links to illegal downloads! No software, or songs, or DVDs etc. Absolutely not. In fact, this is the most important.

    A note about all these little rules, and warnings:

    Do not get worried if you make a mistake posting something that is copyright protected. . . you are not going to get infraction or get banned, unless you do it on purpose or keep repeating the obvious ;-) You can always ask, or to keep things uber simple, just post the links to the images and the vids. I'm not exactly 100% sure about points 1,2,3, but that's the gist of it until Riccardo calms down and gets his adsense account back, or he might close the site down. . .

    =====================

    Photographers that mark their work copyright on their site, want people to visit their own site to see the images, unless you get permission to post on your own site for some reason.
    Same thing with youtube, I guess. . . that's why we link to everything with copyrights.
    People, bands that create music, do not want their music used on your video unless they give permission, or they get royalty. . . that's why you get coyright warnings on youtube for so many fan vids!

    Hope this helps a bit.

    I've been following this and it's horrible.. I mean I already miss the Alizée Stuff Section and Gallery too.. without images how can we enjoy a forum as much? I hope it all turns out well in the end but I agree it's pretty stupid reasoning in the first place. You've all said it all and I think we can all agree that this shit happening is basically a joke or should I say bollocks?

    TBH I don't really understand any of it so I hope this vid will go down alright with you mods.. if not just pm me and tell me I was wrong.



    I luv this place qand Alizée too......................................

    Default I love the new site header logo

    I love the new site header logo! The size and diffuse shadowing of the title text has a lot of character, and Alizée's expressions are so powerful.

    Default Forum rules

    I'd like some clarification about this forum's policy on personal insults and abuse. Is it a matter of 'the more you contribute, the more you are allowed to insult and abuse people'? The reason I ask is because there is one long-standing and well known member of this forum who repeatedly insults people and although he often gets warned about it he always gets away with it. Not only does this seem wrong to me but it also makes the forum a very unattractive place to visit.

    It depends on the insult and the abuse. I have given out warnings and infractions. They add up to a ban, if continued. The infraction points expire after a certain amount of time, also. There is also moderator's discretion, where certain points are weighed in giving custom infractions or warnings, etc. Rest assured that I will not allow insults and abuses of that nature to carry on. . .

    Please use the "report post" function to notify of such abuses.

    I usually like to put a stop to things and warn . . and then see if it continues before I give infraction. That's what I did last time, and the insults have stopped. If the same person insults again, etc, they WILL get a infraction or, custom infraction based on so many warnings and infractions from past instances.

    Take care
