FAQ: Pics and vids
Pics and Vids: Since this forum is the most accessed of all, it is important that a user knows about forum Netiquette!! Netiquette can best be defined as internet forum good manners!
I am new here. What is the code of conduct in this forum?
- DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!! This is the internet version of shouting and is considered rude.
- Go easy on the colors and font sizes. They're there for occasional use - NOT for putting up huge posts in lurid colors!
- Don't quote large quantities of someone else's post, just to put a one line answer like "I agree"
- Don't paste in huge amounts of data from elsewhere. If you want people to look at something on the web that you've written, then paste a link!
- Don't overuse smilies in your posts!
Am confused! What classifies as Mirchi and what as Masala?
Anything non-nude goes in Masala(PNV-Glamour) and anything nude goes in Mirchi(PNV-Adult). Its as simple as that! If you want to start a thread with a healthy mix of both start it up @Mirchi. If you still face any doubt feel free to contact any PNV Moderator.
What are prefixes?
Prefixes are a way to tag your threads. Currently, prefixes are mandatory to create a thread in the Masala/Mirchi sections. Using prefixes makes it easier for people to browse the threads in the categories they prefer. Kindly prefix your thread with the appropriate tags provided. If you have any doubts regarding what prefix to add to a particular thread, feel free to take the help of any admin member. Details of prefixes are given here.
The message is self explanatory. In simple words, you are trying to post a link from a filtered site which pays you per click. This has been disallowed in all sections except Pics n Vids - Poster's Paradise since some members started misusing this opportunity to make money by spamming on XB. We are intolerant when it comes trouble making or causing inconvenience to our users. Please post such links in the Pics n Vids - Spammer's Paradise section only.
I don’t agree with a particular user or with his posts. What should I do?
Don't be offended too easily! If you disagree with others opinion, that doesn't mean you should take it personally. If their post or thread is way too offensive, please alert the moderators by using report post feature. you will find this button on the top right corner of your post. Please bear in mind, you are NOT supposed to abuse/threaten/harass a member or his family directly or indirectly. Persistent behavior would result in banning the user from this site.
Why are my single(post) threads got merged into one mega thread?
Please Do not open so many threads. In case you have not noticed, some of your threads do not have any replies while others have very few. This is futile both for you and this board. Instead of opening multiple threads, collect all your clips and make a mega thread. You will get more responses. Hence all your threads were merged into a single big one. We hope you will keep this in mind for future.
How do I post a video?
To post a video on XB, first of all you will have to upload your video on anyone of the file sharing services like FilesFlash. After successful uploading of your file, you can just copy and paste the link in your threads on XB. Also see MD: Tutorials.
How do I post a picture?
Upload your pictures on anyone one of the picture hosting services like picscrazy and copy and paste the BB code in your posts. Also see Tutorials.
No you can't. In Xossip pictures can only be posted as inline or as thumbnails. All other forms are disallowed.
Some important guide lines to make your life easier in Pics and Vids section:
Please make sure that you have chosen the right section before posting. Request for videos, pictures etc. shall be made in Help and Requests section.
- DONT post ANY copyrighted materials
- DO NOT share MP3s (Music albums, bollywood hits etc.), Full length movies (Hollywood, Bollywood etc.), and copyrighted porn!
- Child pornography is not only disallowed, but abhorred here. Violation of this would result in life ban of the concerned user.
- Bestiality is also not allowed.
- DONT discuss any religious and political topics, it is strictly prohibited. You have other boards for such stuff, spare XB!
- DONT advertise other boards on XB.
- DONT use nude images in AVs or signatures. People surf non porn forums from work, it will be inconvenient for such people to have their bosses see nude images!
- Do not negative rep others without a valid reason. Valid reasons include abusive posts, spammers or posting something that's against the rules.
- Do not request passwords and invitations of other sites.
- DONT use images of any sort while appreciating any post. It causes irritation to others and also poses an inconvenience to dialup users.A simple message with normal fonts will serve the purpose just as well.
- DONT use XB torrents section to share files <20mb in size. You can upload them in any file host and post it in the pics & vids section.Any such active torrents will be removed.
