Frequently Asked Questions!
Here is a brief explanation of some of the questions you may have about CelebBoard.
What is required on this board?
First and foremost - keep an open mind! There are people here from all over the world
and if they happen to say something you might not like - either ignore it or learn to live
with it. The next most important thing is to Try and behave in and 'ADULT' fashion
- which means TRY TRY TRY to just be CIVIL to one another. You may not like them, and you
certainly don't HAVE to, but starting a nasty flame war is one of the things we frown upon
here. In fact - we frown on it to the point of BANNING people... ;) In addition - never
be afraid to request help, comments, suggestions, or anything from any of the other members,
as this site is SUPPOSED to be an open forum for all. If you have requests for pics, don't
be afraid to ask, but remember - it is a REQUEST! - demands can result in you being ignored
completely, which is almost worse than being banned (almost).
And what is required most of all: BE YOURSELF (Don't impersonate or pretend
to be somebody else)
Abusing the board/server
While I do understand that sometimes downloading stuff becomes a little tedious now and then
running a file retriever bot against the board is strictly prohibited. Why? Because other people
want to be able to download files as well, post stuff, interact with the others here, and with the
advent of 'sooper-multi-threaded-max-bandwidth-optimized file retrievers', it's entirely possible
for one or two people to suck up all the available bandwidth to the point where NOBODY ELSE CAN DO
ANYTHING. Needless to say, that is not acceptable and as such, running a bot can get your access
shut down and you'll be suspended/banned/blacklisted depending on the severity. While some boards
host files externally on image hosts, we here DO NOT. So, sucking down the main thread can result
in a huge spike in bandwidth use, and a corresponding decrease in anyone else's enjoyment. And, since
we're not Amazon with virtually unlimited resources... well, just don't do it.
What can and cannot be posted ?
You can post anything you want as long as it has to do with celebrity and the images are
not copyright protected ... be it regular or more adult (hardcore) celebrities. Please
note: Playboy Images are NOT ALLOWED ON THIS SITE. Posting images from P.E.I. will result
in your being banned from the site. The images
do not have to be your work, but sometimes it can be appropriate to give the original
NO FAKES PLEASE
If you're uploading images,
please use JPG or GIF formats in order to conserve bandwidth. In addition, those are the
two most popular formats that can be displayed by the browsers.
Videos are now allowed, each user gets his or her own video space which they can share within
this site only. We also can convert to streaming versions, again, for this site only due to
bandwidth issues. Face it, we're not anywhere near as big as YouTube.
How long does it take for my membership?
After paying, it may take a few minutes to a few hours to get you registered, this is
because it may take a while for the email to get to me, or you might be signing up when I'm
sound asleep. And while I -am- dedicated to running this site, hey, I still have to sleep on
occasion. Usually, I can get you signed up regardless of where I am, since with smartphones being
what they are I can actually manage this site from whereever I am. Generally, about an
hour or two. Worst case? 6-8 hours depending on my local time vs your local time.
I can't afford to pay, but I'm a giver (of posts)!
Believe it or not, with things being the way they are, we understand. This site isn't really
meant to make a bunch of money, we do this because we LOVE it. And naked women. Almost equally.
There are lots of people out there who wish to contribute in non-finanical ways such as posting,
uploading images, thanking people, all that great stuff. They don't have much of a life (like
any of us really do!) but you'll share what you have. Thus - we have our protege memberships.
There are some who can and do contribute more than the standard membership, these are our
Macenas sponsors - they sponsor you - the protege, and those slots are rather limited. What
you can do is apply (Click here). If there is a slot, I'll set up
your account and email you back.
