First off, welcome to the HevyDevy Forums! A place to talk about everything related to Devin Townsend and his musical endeavours - past, present and future. If you're a new user, please use the "Introduce Yourself" thread in the General Discussion to announce your arrival and post any personal details you wish to share (no obligation of course, but a nice courtesy nonetheless).


In order to keep the discussion on the HDR message board at a courteous and fun level, please follow these rules. If you don't agree with these rules, please don't post messages on the board. Failure to observe these rules when posting may result in temporary or permanent suspension of your ability to participate here. Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.


01 - By posting on these forums you certify that you are actually interested in the musical deeds of Townsend, D. and that you don't register for obscure reasons. If the team have any doubt regarding your interest for Devin's music that means you have nothing to do here. Your account will simply be deleted.

02 - While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters. Obviously the quality of the board depends on the quality of the members who post. That's right, YOU. Like most things in life, the more you put into it the more you'll get out of it.

03 - Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, off topics and useless polls.

04 - Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed; also formerly banned members are generally NOT permitted to return.

05 - No flaming, trolling or bullying! Keep it civil. Be respectful of other members opinions. Discuss the message, don't attack the messenger. It's great to disagree but personal attacks or harassment will not be tolerated. Expressing hate towards people due to their religion, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or any other bias will lead to immediate banning. Insulting, threatening, harassing comments are not appropriate on the HDR board.

06 - The Mod/Admin team tries to do its best to keep this place nice so if you disagree with one of our decisions then please tell us so in a polite manner. In other words: Respect our authoritah!
;-)

07 - Do NOT choose a DTP, DTB or SYL member username. Doing so could confuse people and is also misrepresentative as some of these band members post here. In addition, vulgar or offensive usernames are strictly discouraged. All new registrations that break these rules will be deleted as soon as they are found.

08- Racism, graphic photos of mutilated body parts (human or animal), and porn topics/posts/sexually explicit photos & videos containing such will be edited or deleted accordingly. If you violate this rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.

09 - Bashing bands, labels and magazines is funny perhaps, but this is hardly the board to do so (if one even exists for that purpose at all). So please refrain from starting topics about how you hate a band and put your energy in saying something positive.

10 - Please keep signatures as discreet as possible. Users found to have offensive images or text may have their signature edited.

11 - Rumors about DTP, DTB (or SYL) members are not a good exposure for the bands. Before any speculations, just wait for the right statement from HevyDevy Records, Northern Music or Century Media. All rumours about band members will be locked until the rumour is confirmed.

12 - Bootleg and P2P discussions are fine, however publicly posting torrent links will not be tolerated. Use the Private Message function, and stay discreet.

13 - Blatant spamming on this board is not tolerated, your account will be deleted. If a member just comes here to subscribe and post only one thread for their own promo or even a couple of genuine posts before spamming to attempt to veil their spamming they will be banned from using the board.


tl;dr - don't be a dick. :)


Thank you for reading, and have fun!
