New Rules For The Vault: The Vault has become a mess, so I'm going to take some steps to try to make it more user-friendly. These rules may be modified over time, so it's a good idea to check this thread every so often. These go into affect August 2nd, 2020.
1- No more than 15 content posts per day. Since the vault needs moderation, I need to slow the amount of posts there. Note that this is posts PER DAY/DATE, not 24 hour period. So, whenever you make a post, note the board time of the post and base your "day" on that.
The key is to not exceed 10 posts per day, regardless of when you post. This will go into affect starting at 12:00 AM (board time) tonight, August 2nd, 2020. For the first week (ending on August 8th), I will issue warnings if someone goes over the limit and delete any posts over the limit. After August 8th, I will simply delete the posts over the limit. Frequent violators will be banned.
Keep in mind that this doesn't apply to people who just post comments---this applies to content posters. Also, this applies only to the Interracial Vault, Black Girls and Asian & White sections, so that's 10 posts per section for a maximum of 30 content posts. This doesn't apply to Solo Movies, Lesbian Movies or the Interracial Megathreads sections. You can post as often as you'd like in those areas.
2- No Premium-Only links allowed. It's come to my attention that there are some premium-only links in the Vault. This will not be permitted---links should be free for everyone. This goes into affect tomorrow, August 2nd, 2020. With these, if I find a violating post, I will not delete the post, but I will delete the link/links and message the poster that the post is in violation. The poster will have 48 hours to replace the post/posts, after which time the post will be deleted in it's entirety.
3- All posts MUST have the following info: Performer's name (if known) or movie title*, screencaps, video size, video duration, video format. With the latter three, they must appear in the post, regardless of whether it appears in the screencaps or not. Video titles are optional, but I don't recommend using the paysite name in posts. Scene dates are helpful if known, but not required. You can put the date in the screencaps if you don't want to put in the post text.
* - If you don't want to post all the performer names in a full movie post, you can put the title of the movie instead. Keep in mind though, that people who search by performer's names will not find your post. Alternatively, you could use the movie title in the thread title and put the performer names within the post itself.
4- Do not post the same scene/scenes more than once. This is a major problem here. I see some scenes being posted over and over again---why? No reason to post stuff that you've already posted, as it just clutters the board. If you have dead links, just update them instead of posting a new thread. Duplicate posts will be deleted!
5- Only 5 content posts per day allowed in the New Release section (Not up at this time). This section will be helpful to those only interested in new content. Note that anything that you post in New Releases Section cannot be posted in the IR Vault---you post in one or the other, not both. You can, however post in Megathreads in addition to New Release Section. The cut-off for New Release content is the previous calendar week (Sunday - Saturday). This means that you cannot post content older than the previous week in New Releases.
Example: Today is Saturday, August 1, 2020. So, you would be able post content no earlier than the week of July 19th - July 25th. The whole idea is to limit it to fresh content and make it easier for folks to find such content.
That's it for now. Changes will be likely to occur, so check this post for the latest updates.
