Terms of Service and Rules

Agreement to the Terms

Upon becoming a member of UtaForum, you are expected to read, understand and abide by the following rules. This is to maintain a safe and welcoming space for our members. If you have any questions about the following, please feel free to contact an administrator.

The below code of conduct applies to all areas of the site (posts, profiles, signatures, etc.)

Any disruptive behavior reported either on- or off-site involving our users will be subject to disciplinary action.

In the case of subjective disputes, final decisions and determinations of whether something is an infraction will be left to the discretion of the moderation team.




Code of Conduct

  • Be respectful.
    No discriminatory or inflammatory content, harassment or threats of any kind are allowed. Refusal to engage in basic courtesy, or obvious attempts to "stir the pot" or be disruptive, will result in disciplinary action.

  • Keep things PG-13.
    No pornography, gore, shock imagery, or other such content is allowed on the forum, nor are any links to such content hosted offsite. Do not attempt to circumvent profanity filters.

  • Abide by all software terms & licenses.
    UtaForum upholds all relevant software terms of service. This applies to the engines, voicebanks, plugins, and any other relevant software. No discussion of piracy or modifying commercial software.

  • Respect others' rights to their work.
    Findings of art or other creative theft, or unauthorized reposting/redistribution, will not be tolerated.

  • Follow board-specific guidelines.
    Some boards have their own rulesets. Be sure to check up on them before posting.

  • Spam is not tolerated.
    Please post only if you have something meaningful to add to the conversation, and not simply a one-word response if it's avoidable. Flooding the chatbox with the same post over and over is also not tolerated.

  • One account per user.
    No sockpuppeting or side accounts are allowed. If you need assistance changing your username or recovering your password please contact the forum staff. Duplicate accounts will be removed promptly.

  • No manipulating forum mechanics.
    This is particularly important in regards to the UTAU Showcase and Resources. This includes but is not limited to manipulating likes, points, postcount, reviews, ratings, views, tokens, etc. in any way.

  • Please keep signatures to a reasonable length.
    Excessively long signatures may be trimmed.



Infractions

Each infraction of the rules will be dealt with in accordance with its severity and the user’s past history of conduct. This includes limiting account features and timed temporary bans, or permanent bans if the infraction is deemed severe enough.




Zero Tolerance

Doing any of the following results in an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

  • Death threats and / or suicide encouragement
  • Stalking another user
