1. Please use an original name & please no fake band member profiles. This should be self-explanatory, however, there are some people who like to create fake profiles & dupe others into believing that they're talking to Ville Valo (for example) for whatever reason. You may not register with the real names or aliases (assumed or otherwise) of the band members, eg. Ville Valo, Mige, etc. Ville is not your husband, so don't be trying to use HIS last name, please. Thank you.

Anyone caught using a band member's name on here or being dishonest about who they are will be deleted from the community & promptly reported to the higher powers, if needed.
Furthermore, if any members who have problems or encounter a member 'posing' as someone else (band member or other) please contact the administrators here to let us know, ASAP.
* For the record, Ville Valo is not online- here or any place on the 'net- talking to fans. He does not have an interest in social-networking.

2. Sharing of links, torrents or files to illegal music downloads (for any band) will not be tolerated: It is illegal to post or ask for MP3's on this community & it is also a breach of copyright law. We are not a music trading network, never have been, never will be. Please buy the albums & support the bands you love. This includes not only HIM but any other music. Same goes for bootlegs. If you see something posted regarding links to illegal downloads please report them to Magik ASAP. Same goes for any mail that is sent to you from another member with downloads. Thank you.
* Anyone who tries to share illegal downloads anywhere on this community will have their account deleted & the links will be reported.

3. Please do not post 'preview' music clips made into videos or other non- official music videos. They will not be removed. The reason for this is that chances are, the video is illegal. If you try to post a video like this & it's removed, myself, or one of the moderators will leave you a PM explaining why the video was removed. Please don't get angry with us or try to add the video again. It is our job to be responsible & protect the band we love.
* If you continue to try to add such videos, your account can/ will be locked for 3 days. If a member still tries, after having their account unlocked, the account will be deleted.

4. Respect the privacy of the members of HIM, their friends, families & anyone else connected with the band. I cannot stress this one enough. This includes anyone who has met the band or has had photos taken with any of the band members. I'm sure such behaviour is not only embarrassing to the person(s) involved, but also to the band members as well.
Likewise, speculation about the band's 'status, their health, etc. is NOT to be discussed. That is their business, not ours. It's unfair to speculate & pass judgement on someone, regardless of who they are, so please keep your speculations to yourself. Thank you.
* Also, be careful when posting rumors. Rumors of a defamatory nature will be removed without warning.

5. Please be respectful of fellow members/ fans. Fighting and personal insults toward members here will not be tolerated. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, abuse, victimization, or any other discrimination. We understand people have different opinions and debates are more than welcome, as long as you only debate the idea & not attack the person.
Also, general bitchiness/ cattiness toward anyone who has had any type of contact with any of the band members (such as reporters, their girlfriends, etc.) will not be tolerated.
If you do have a problem with another member, please be mature & discuss the problem with them in private messages. But, above all, BE RESPECTFUL! If the problem isn't resolved, please contact Magik about the problem. Messages or other actions will then be taken to resolve the problem. Thank you.

6. Please do NOT plagiarise from the site or this forum in any way. What is posted on this site, stays on this site, unless otherwise stated. To copy the hard work made by me (Magik) for the FAQ, these additional rules, etc. or posts by the other members- regardless of what it is- is plagiarism. If you have a community or site, please be original & don't steal another's hard work without permission.
If there is something posted by the Admin., or another member you'd like to use, please ask permission first by the 'author' of the content. If permission is given, please be respectful & give credit where credit is due... Thank you.
Section B: Graphics- Tagges & other graphics/ Usage Tagges or any graphics, comment tagges, etc, can be used as they were intended ONLY. You may post them on your profiles, use them when commenting & even using them to 'advertise' the site on your own myspace accounts, etc. (upload to your own photo hosting account first).
-Do NOT use the images to make a 'new' graphic (wallpaper, etc.)- in whole or in part- & then claim that work as your own.
- Do NOT remove credits or watermarks on on these images & claim as your own. Countless hrs. have gone into the work to make these for you. I pride myself in keeping my graphics as well as both the Dark-Light site & HIM-Addicts site copyright compliant where possible & those credits are there for that reason. All I ask is a little respect & common courtesy. Thank you.
*If I see graphics made as described above (in whole or in part), I will no longer make these graphics available for anyone to use.

7. These rules may be altered, changed or added to at any given time. Depending on any any issues that may arise, the administrators & moderators of this forum will discuss rules or actions that may be needed or added. However, in so doing, I, Magik, as owner of this community, agree to post an announcement & these rules will be modified as needed.
* Changes will take effect immediately & a notice will be posted.

8. Any posts or other activity by members that are in violation of any of these rules will have their account locked for a period of up to 3 days or deleted. By registering with Forumotion & Dark-Light, you agree to Forumotion's Terms of Use, as well as the above rules and understand that membership can be withdrawn if either agreement is violated.
If the certain behavior persists your account will either be locked for a longer period of time or your account will be terminated at the site owner's discretion.
Dark-Light retains the right to remove content/ withdraw membership at our discretion without prior warning.
