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), 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.

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.

I don't think the board software supports an ignore feature. I suggest you direct your questions about the tech aspects of the forum to Qos Admin. This thread is for rules about the video vault.

The thread for site improvement suggestions is here

Hoss, please DEAL WITH THE non interracial posts here. There's a ton of them. They need to be deleted RIGHT NOW. THEY DO NOT BELONG HERE. THAT SHOULD BE THE RULE TOO. that said

"All posts MUST have the following info: Performer's name (if known), 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."

I see a lot of users using uploads from that fucking idiot NTB. I hate him, he cuts down the video so you don't see who made the video so the video looks like shit, he adds that shitty watermark. That said, with quick search you can find the original title. I already did to some of that. But yeah they don't belong here. Honestly you should add the rule "no ntb bullshit". That guy is a cancer of IR porn.

"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! "

the thing is there's always going to be repost. Leah gotti new scene comes to mind. It's an old new scene, but it was released because different studio re-released it. Only you know stuff you're not going to know what is new

Not sure about that post limit...I don't think people are going to follow that. What if there are 11 new videos? People should wait until tomorrow to release that eleventh one?

Yes, why not? These rules were necessary, the vault was becoming unusable; lets try them before we start to complain or rebel against them.  Can't understand why waiting one more day before posting number 11 would be such a hardship

The Non-IR will be removed, but keep in mind that there are a lot of posts here, so that will take some time. Moving forward, any posts in violation should be reported to ensure timely removal.

As for the NTB posts, I can't stop people from downloading his stuff. Personally, I no longer mess with any scenes that have watermarks on them. They act as if they own the stuff, but they lessen the quality by adding the watermark. My advice---just move on to the next post.

With the reposts, I'm not referring to cases like the Leah Gotti one (released on one site then on another). I'm talking about the SAME EXACT scene from the same site. Obviously, not everyone is going to notice that scenes are recycled (It's been happening a lot during the pandemic), but people have posted the same scene (not recycled) that they posted before---that's what I'm referring to. They can repost to their hearts content in a Megathread, just not here.

As for the post limit, I think 10 is more than fair (even moreso when the New Release section launches, adding more posting options). Do you really think there are 10 new IR scenes everyday? That would be 70+ new IR scenes in a week ---not happening. A lot of sites have cut down on their updates, so this shouldn't be an issue. And like Coffin said, they can just post it the next day or in a Megathread. Not a big deal.

Hoss, please add the rule I asked for over a year ago to official list.

In the "Black Girls" Section, scenes with white male performers must be labeled "interracial" or even "IR" in the title.

I assume it's mostly black men on here, and also that most of us prefer to see black men in scenes with black women. This will help us find them, and I would check the "black girls" section far more often than I do now.

The site's script was written with its main focus being on the video tube. The forum part is a bit basic and was intended for simple support issues. We could switch the forum software to myBB or phpBB but I lack the coding skills for that. There have been 0 volunteers. This means we have to pay somebody with the PHP skills for that. Currently we only rely on the income from the BTC donation button and the donations so far cover like... 5% of the server costs... This means there's not enough income to improve the forum at the moment because the server costs are first priority and even these costs are not covered. Could you please use the imrovement thread. This one is about the New Vault Rules so let's not flood it with other stuff.

Just a heads-up - The New IR Scenes section is up and ready for posts. As I detailed before, uploaders can post 5 times per day in that section. If necessary, the amount can be increased later on. Keep in mind that whatever you post in New IR, can't be posted here in the IR Vault, but can be posted in a Megathread. I also created a section for Mainstream stuff, so if you have non-porn clips that you want to share, post it there. Do NOT under any circumstances post any full tv episodes or full mainstream movies!

Good stuff. Suggestion: maybe the new releases section should be ahead of the other download sectiions. Makes sense that way to me, but it's a minor issue.
