A big part of our ability to operate, update and moderate this forum at Covers.com comes from the relationship with our advertisers. Recently those advertisers have begun to crackdown and set higher standards for content where their ads display on a daily basis. In order to appease our advertisers who are very valuable to the future growth of this forum, we need to implement some updates to the Community Forum guidelines.
Users are no longer able to post active links in threads. You can still post the URL you want users to view, but now other users will have to copy the link and paste it in the browser themselves. Don’t be lazy; it’s just one simple step.
Any images, avatars and URLs containing nudity, pornography, sexually explicit bikinis, lingerie or illegal drug use are banned from the forum. We don’t hate nudity; we just don’t need it in the forum.
Users whose Avatars have been removed will see a Red Ghost Avatar in its place. Users will be banned if they breach these guidelines 3 times.
Please take some time and review the full Community Manifesto http://www.covers.com/postingforum/forum_manifesto.aspx.
Please post any concerns or questions you may have in the Covers Help Forum. Try to refrain from creating duplicate threads. If there is a thread in the help forum already dealing with the same issue, please add to that instead of creating another on the same topic. Duplicate threads will be deleted. http://www.covers.com/postingforum/POST01/showmain.aspx?spt=17
Lastly, remember that we’re always watching what you post. We reserve the right to remove and ban any users we feel are not meeting the guidelines. We don’t want to do it, so please don’t give us a reason to.
