Global Rules
« on: April 17, 2016, 06:36 pm »
(1) We will have no restrictions for those who wish to post duplicate image links posted on other forums. That business is between you and them. We will not become involved in any disputes, and don't care how many forums you post the same links on. We will only establish rules when or if it becomes a problem (too much dead, DMCA content).

(2) We will have no restrictions on image hosts until they become a problem. At such time we will establish a list similar to other forums. Please do not use annoying image hosts or it will advance the date that we must establish a list. We don't want a list. Use whatever image hosts you want, but please don't become the reason for us establishing a banned image host list. (Eventually of course we will need one. Let's put off the day.)

(3) At the present all members may use paying or free image hosts. Those who are undecided are encouraged to use the best free image host: ImageBam. They are a good performing image host who offers free uploads with no account required. Just visit the URL and upload your set.

(4) Private image hosts are welcome. If you intend to use a private image host please send a PM and inform the Hot Honeys Manager of the name of your host and who will be using it. If you do not own the private image host, please include contact info so that I may directly contact the image host operator.

(5) One ABSOLUTE rule: URL Galleries is permanently banned from this forum. Violation of this rule may result in all kinds of trouble you don't want to find out about. DO NOT POST USING THEIR SERVICE!

These rules will be extended at an appropriate time.

Additional elaboration on link exchanges and use of your own website in your signature.

(1.) If your site is of completely non-commercial nature you may link your website in your signature. For examples, a link to your website with pictures of your dog or discussing your favorite hobby of basket weaving or rock collecting.

(2.) Absolutely NO commercial links are allowed that are not related to our forum content other than described above. If you sell vacuum cleaners, insurance or malware, that is forum spamming and is an offense worthy of being banned. Links to forums are also not allowed.

(3.) You MAY NOT post image links to your own website. This is a security threat to our members because every member who reads your post will have their IP address appear in your logs. You are welcome to have images in your signature, please contact me with the URL and I will add it to a local file which will not compromise our members' privacy.

(4.) This may cover many of you who have your own adult oriented blogs. You are permitted to link to your own blog provided you host a link to Hot Honeys on the top page of your own blog. Be reminded of the image restrictions above, we will be happy to host any image you wish to use on our own server.

18 U.S.C.A. §2256 warning!

While our server is not located in the United States, many of our members ARE located in the United States, and we strictly adhere to 18 U.S.C.A. §2256 provisions.

You can read about it yourself here 18 U.S.C.A. §2256. It is imperative that you understand that you are NOT to post links to websites that do not comply with 18 U.S.C.A. §2256 regulations regarding the depiction of minors defined as models who are under the age of 18 years old.

What that means is that you are not allowed to post images from websites that do not comply with 18 U.S.C.A. §2256. Popular sites like Met-Art Networks, Nubiles, Femjoy and the many other popular websites carry this certification that they follow the record keeping conventions of 18 U.S.C.A. §2256 the same as we require, for the same reasons. They want to not endanger US citizens by accidentally downloading non-compliant material, we want the same. If you look carefully at each of these sites you will find a statement of compliance with this U.S. statute.

In any case where we are requested to cooperate with law enforcement regarding possible violations, even though we are not in the US, we will comply with requests from US law enforcement and/or Interpol and give them all the information we have on you!

Other than the above, anybody else who wants to know anything about you can go fuck themselves. Child porn is the only reason Hot Honeys will ever give up any of your personal information. It is absolutely the only reason!

I hope I worded this right. Your privacy here is absolutely respected with the single exception of child porn.

Signatures:

Signatures should be no taller than approx. 150-160px and not so wide that they cause the forum to go wider than normal. Images may not be hosted on private servers. You may use any public image host and it is suggested that you do include only the image tags. Text should be limited to approximately the same height, and image + text may not be used to increase the signature height.

Links to personal porn blogs must follow the rules regarding displaying a back link to Hot Honeys on your blog. Links to non-porn personal sites are not subject to the back linking rule (like a cooking or other hobby site). You are welcome to link to your own posts, collections, etc. as long as they are hosted on Hot Honeys. Links to other forums of any type are forbidden.

If your signature contains pornographic material the content is restricted to the same standards as our Softcore section of Adult Photo Sets. In other words hardcore images are not allowed.

Here at Hot Honeys we prefer the emphasis and focus to be on the posts, not on the signatures.

This is an evolving standard. We are not going to get out a ruler or start measuring pixels. Just please keep your signatures so that they are in good taste and are not garish or overly distracting.
