If you are becoming a member of the board or Despair Faction, it is your responsibility
to read and follow these guidelines. Please keep in mind that just because something isn't specifically prohibited in the guidelines does not mean it is allowed. Thanks!
Respect AFI, the board staff, and the other board members. You may not
ever verbally attack or threaten another member of the board. If you don't
like AFI or AFI fans, don't post anywhere on this board. Show the band, the crew,
and the administrators your respect and we will do the same for you.
· Post in the correct forums!
Please consider where your thread would
best fit on the board.
· If your thread or reply disappears or is closed, please do not make
· Write legibly.
No LOL, no l33tspeak, no u's and y's. This is an English language board. You are asking other people to read your writing, so please make it easy for us.
· Do not discuss the personal lives of the band.
Their "real names," religious
beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, or family information is their business
and is not open for discussion. Please do not post fan fiction. Please do not
post "groupie posts" which focus on the appearance of the band.
· Do not not post inappopriate images or flood forums by posting multiple
threads or replies in series.
No pornography, explicit sexual content, or gore.
The admins and mods know it when we see it.
· Post in English.
Anything else will be removed because the admins/mods
probably cannot read it and it therefore can't be subjected to the same scrutiny
as all other posts.
· Ignore topics that you do not enjoy.
If you don't have something worthwhile
to contribute to a thread, please do not post.
· You get one account on this board.
If you have multiple accounts because
of an accident or mistake, please e-mail Sonia to remove one of them.
