Rules & Guidelines
  • While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • Please refrain from double posting. If you need to add something to your previous post then edit it.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
  • Do not login to other users accounts without their permission.
  • Only ONE REGISTRATION PER PERSON can be complete. If you need help with registering please send an email to admin@amywinehouseforum.co.uk or wino@amywinehouseforum.co.uk. If anyone creates more than one account then these accounts will be merged together and the user warned.
  • This is a forum for Amy Winehouse fans. If you're not a fan of the Winehouse then please don't waste your time and especially our time by making unfriendly and negative posts. We can and will ban your IP address if this happens.
  • Please do not post using "txt spk". It's annoying to read, makes threads/posts look very untidy, and makes you (the poster) look abit of a tit.
  • Please post in the correct section of the forum. If you want to post a video of Amy then post it in the Amy on Video forum. If you want to share your artwork/creativity with our users, then post in the Artwork/Creativity forum, etc.


Signature Size Limits
  • Signatures must not exceed 500(width) x 200(height) pixels. Users who upload signatures bigger than this will have their signature removed and the user will be warned.


Sharing Files
  • Respect the copyrights of other people, websites, software and printed media. Please no pointers, how-tos, advocating any illegal activity. Do not upload bootleg material or MP3's etc. Posts regarding such things will be deleted and the user warned.
  • THE SHARING OF MP3'S, and similar files: Make sure you READ and UNDERSTAND the following; If it's not available for sale or if it's live, it's OK for you to request and share. If it's something rare, but released or something that isn't out yet, it's not OK so DO NOT ask for it on the forum. If you break this rule you will be warned by a moderator and your posts will be moderated. If you break this rule again you will be banned.

In order to share links on the forum you must have made 15 posts.

The reason I did this is because we have had, in the past and still now, many new registrations where people were just joining to post links, either to spam sites or just trying to steal our members and redirect them to other Amy forums/websites. Please respect the 15 post limit. If you want to share a link then contribute to the forum and before you know it, you will have reached 15 posts. It really isn't hard. This limit is put in place for good reason.

I'm getting abit sick and tired of logging on here and seeing several people posting continuously, one after another, of absolute nonsense, just so they can share a link.
Please do not do this because I will keep deleting all nonsense posts until you get the message. I've seen so much double, triple, quadruple, etc posting recently and it's very annoying. Please stop it.

Thank you.

New rule:

Please post in the correct section of the forum. If you want to post a video of Amy then post it in the Amy on Video forum. If you want to share your artwork/creativity with our users, then post in the Artwork/Creativity forum, etc.


I'm trying to tidy up this forum abit by moving threads to their correct forum and I'm amazed by the amount of threads I'm finding in the wrong place.

C'mon guys! Each section on this forum is labelled very clearly. So far I've moved about 20 video threads from Anything Amy to Amy on Video and there's still many to go.

Please please PLEASE can people start posting in the correct place. It really is a pain in the arse running around after some of you because you can't be arsed posting in the right section.

Got an Amy related video? Post it in Amy on Video.
Made a picture/video you'd like to share? It goes in the Art Work/Creativity forum, and so on...

If people continue to ignore this rule then they'll be warned. If forum members continue ignoring these rules after a warning then they'll be suspended for a certain amount of time. If members still ignore these simple rules after their suspension has been lifted, then they will be banned permanently.

Let's try and keep this place relatively organised. It makes life easier for everyone.

Thanks for reading. Peace and harmony on AWF. :P

I would like everyone to re-read the rules and guidelines so I have reset every members acceptance status regarding this.

I am especially seeing a lot of signatures that exceed our maximum dimensions. If this applies to you please adjust this immediately. I will start removing users signatures that exceed 500x200 pixels.

Please familiarise yourself with this thread especially and every post made.
This may seem strict but the rules are here for a reason.

Thank you.

If you see someone posts info or the link to something that has been posted already, please, abstain of criticism. The support team will probably merge duplicated posts, but if you see we didn't mention the dupe within a couple of days - feel free to help us by sending links to posts to be merged. Feel free to send these links to one of us by PM. You also can press the "Report" button, as it won't mean like you're complaining: it's just a simple way to draw moderators' attention to some work to be done.

 

Thanks to all for keeping peace and respecting each other!
