Frequent Contributor Forum Rules Updated 3/18/2016
This Section was created to recognize and reward those members who have been instrumental in helping make Bioco Sighting Place the best and most successful Ortho Fetish Board on the Internet. Please read these guidelines carefully. Once you have permission to access the FC Group its use implies that you accept the Board's Rules, Terms of Service and will abide by a code of conduct. Lastly, this announcement is considered an addendum to the Board Rules.
Admission into Frequent Contributors' (FC) Section:
Users with 115 Activity Points, a minimum of 2 years of membership, consistent participation and submission of quality contributions and be considered by the moderators to be a member in good Standing (completed profiles, valid email address and no infractions w/in 1 year). Any user who meets these minimum qualifications will be considered as full member in the FC Group. All users seeking FC access must apply by selecting Profile -> User Groups - > Frequent Contributor Group. Failure to follow these instructions will result in the rejection of your application.
Additional and Important Information
Management may, at their discretion waive the 115 point requirement or any requirement as appropriate for those users (new or existing) who have made and/or continue to make outstanding contributions to the community. Management may also deny admission if a user attempts to increase their Activity Points by creating new threads for similar material, posting comments that add no value to the thread, reposts, and a history of posting only YouTube videos or mediocre Webfinds. Users who consistently post Webfinds as links and never upload the better finds as attachments may also be denied access.Quality/ unique and diverse contributions will always be given greater consideration over the total number of posts. Users who have incomplete profiles and invalid email addresses will be automatically denied access until that user corrects the deficiency. No exceptions will be made.
The requirement for continued membership in FC is contingent on continuing as a consistent contributor to BSP while adhering to all other guidelines and/or rules. Admittance to the FC Forum is something to be proud of because it means you serve as an example of the most respected members in our community. We encourage you to post only your best/favorite material in the FC Forum. This forum was developed for you to share and interact with other Frequent Contributors with little to no interference or moderation. Most importantly, it sets new standards and serves to motivate other members to participate accordingly.
1. The FC area is reserved for posting high quality sightings, webfinds, or classic pictures. The material you choose will be viewed by a small group of fellow frequent contributors. Reposting of FC material, anywhere on the Internet will not be tolerated and will result in a lifetime ban from BSP. No exceptions and no second chances.
2. Users should continue to post material in the main sections, however, all FC members are required to make a minimum of 4 contributions/year to the FC Forum, exclusively. You must upload all pictures directly to the Board as attachments. If that is not feasible, you must contact the Administrator or Super Moderator for guidance and direction. Posting links to Webfinds is not permitted in the FC Forum unless approved by management.
3. Continued access to the FC area is contingent on your group participation. This is only reasonable since it's the member contributions that keeps BSP the most exclusive forum of its type in rthe world. We've enjoyed an enormous amount of growth and participation over the past 5 years and these rules or guidelines will assure continued participation and subsequent success.
I apologize for the numerous rules and very rigid procedure , however, you can thank those few guys who never follow instructions and make all of this necessary.
I wish to extend my personal thanks to many of you for the hard work and commitment to BSP. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a concern, an idea for improvement or simply have a question. Of course, the other managers can also assist with most issues.
