Rules

These terms govern your use of the Infurno! service. Please read them carefully. You may download a copy of these terms at any time from <https://www.infurno.net/rules/>. Please ensure you are using the latest revision of these terms of service. This document is version 1.00, revised 8/2/2015.

Part 1: General

Welcome to Infurno! We strive to be a more casual community than most other furry-oriented community websites. We're not going to pretend this was written by a lawyer, like the other furry sites. We're pretty sure it'd stick in court, but neither of us have money for that, so let's hope it never comes to that. This document is in 3 or 4 parts (counting this one!) and is designed to replace the other site's "terms of service" and "acceptable upload policy", as well as serve as our site and forum rules. We'll start with the site and forum rules, and then get into the boring stuff you probably won't read, but really should, since they're part of the rules you agreed to when you registered for the site. By the way, if you haven't registered yet: if you do go on and register, you're telling us that you've read this document, and you agree to follow it, whether you like it or not. From now on in the document, "we" means Infurno!, the "site" or the "service" means Infurno!, and "you" means you. Yes, you. The person reading this. Don't roll your eyes, we really have to say that. Sorry.

Part 2: Site and Forum Conduct

OK, we know you hate this part, but bear with us. To make sure Infurno! is an enjoyable community, we must establish rules for everyone to follow. These rules apply to all site administration. If you notice an administrator violating these rules and being an idiot about it, email infurno@infurno.net with the subject being the name of the site staff you're calling out. OK, I've stalled as long as I can. Here come the actual rules.

1: Even if you're not a pony, respect is magic

We don't ask you to get along with everyone. In fact, controlled disagreement leads to a healthy community. However, it's possible to disagree without calling someone a racial slur or instigating a bench-clearing hockey brawl. Respecting your fellow users will go a long way. This is not to mean that you're not free to express yourself. "Colorful metaphors" are encouraged, but beware of using words like the "N-word". Whether they are offensive or not is at the sole discretion of the administrator viewing your post, and depends entirely on context, the phase of the moon, and how much coffee we've had this morning. Use of racial slurs by any member of staff is forbidden, however, to avoid the appearance of favoritism. Profanity, however, is allowed.

2: Tell us if you find a problem

Security vulnerabilities happen, however you don't have to take advantage of them. If you identify a security vulnerability, immediately email infurno@infurno.net, or send a note to an admin. Unlike the other site, we actually care about vulnerabilities, and want to take care of them as soon as possible. Exploiting found vulnerabilities will not be tolerated, and is probably the fastest way to see what the "You're banned!" page looks like

3: Don't get us all busted

We don't care how much weed you smoked last night, or if you know where to score some. Posts containing illegal material will be removed, and may result in a ban or other sanctions, including referral to law enforcement, at the discretion of the administration.

4: Crazy Catch-All

These rules are meant to serve as general guidelines, and we do run things by the spirit of the law, rather than the hard letter. Please save all of us time, and don't do anything stupid to try and circumvent these rules. If you get really creative, just remember: We can ban any account at any time with or without cause, so creative rulebreaking will result in a creative ban.

5: Follow the Chain o'Command

The administration team is here to keep Infurno safe, sane, and awesome. We try to be approachable, and we're here to make sure you're having the best experience possible. We do, however, require that you comply with all reasonable requests the administrators make. If you feel slighted, don't take it personally, we go out of our way to make sure that we enforce our rules fairly, and there aren't very many of them, so it's hard to go wrong.

Part 3: File Uploads and Image Submissions

OK, here's the only real legalese in this whole damn document. We're getting this out of the way first so that it's up-front and clear. By uploading or submitting any content to Infurno.net, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to copy, distribute, publicly perform (e.g., stream it), publicly display (e.g., post it elsewhere), reproduce and create derivative works from it (meaning things based on it), anywhere, whether in print or any kind of electronic version that exists now or later developed, for any purpose, including a commercial purpose. WHAT THIS MEANS: We need this license agreement to do some important things with your submissions! Without this license, we can't automatically generate thumbnails based on your submissions, we can't display your submissions to others, we can't back it up on our NAS, and we can't show your content to premium subscribers, in case we ever have any. You still own the rights to any content submitted to Infurno! We're not going to steal your art, but Fennec Vox's beer fund is dependent on us not getting sued out of existence.

OK, now to the rules for what you can and can't submit.

1: No photographic pornography

This isn't Furries Xtreme. Don't post actual naked photos here, or photos containing anything you couldn't wave around at the mall without attracting the attention of the police. This INCLUDES nude photographic art. Having actual nude photographs on a site is an entirely different can of worms from furry porn, and one that we're not ready to get into.

2: Don't upload stolen art

If you didn't make it, didn't commission it, or it's not of your fursona, don't upload it. We will remove any submissions which receive a DMCA-mandated takedown notice. If you need to file a DMCA takedown notice, fill out and submit the DraconiX DMCA Notice Form.

3: Mature submission policy

You may upload "adult" or "mature" artwork, as long as you flag it as such at the time of upload. Un-tagged adult or mature art will result in a warning on the first offense, and a ban if it becomes a recurring problem.

4: Screenshots

You may upload screenshots of games, software, etc. if and only if the purpose of the screenshot is to show off your own created artwork or applications.

Some things that are allowed: Screenshots of a game or piece of software you personally developed, screenshots of a drawing, modeling, or word processing application showing a WIP of your own work, screenshots of a game that has been modified to include your original 2d or 3d artwork.

Some things that are not allowed: Screenshots of a game that lets you create with elements in the game (Spore, Minecraft, "create a character" games, etc.), screenshots of Infurno! or other websites that you did not create.
