Terms of Service and Rules

Welcome to the Fractal Audio Systems Forum

This is a friendly group, which abides by just a few simple rules. If you cannot follow the rules you will be warned. Three warnings will result in a temporary ban of 30 days. Further infractions will result in a ban of 90 days. After that you will be banned permanently. Moderators and admins may also skip right to the banning at their discretion.

  1. First and foremost, be civil and courteous. Attacks, insults or harassment of others will not be tolerated.
  2. No excessively foul language, trolling, hate speech, or adult content. Also, don't SHOUT.
  3. None of this stuff like "I can hear something and if you can't hear it you're an idiot." Tone is subjective and personal. If others don't agree with your opinion that's life. Take the "stereophile" nonsense elsewhere.
  4. Respect the moderators and the founders of the forum. The moderators do their job without pay and graciously dedicate their time.
  5. No politics, no religion. There are plenty of other places on the Internet where you can discuss your political leanings and religious beliefs, here is not one of them.
  6. It costs money to host this forum. As such it's not a democracy. The guy who pays the bill (me) has the ultimate say.

If you have a question or a problem with this forum, with another user, for whatever reason, please use the Contact Us link in the forum footer.

A Note About Disclosing Affiliations

You MUST include any manufacturer affiliations in your signature line. If you are a beta tester, employee, representative or in any way affiliated with a company in the musical instrument (MI) industry you need to disclose this. You will be warned and given one week to comply if an MI-related account is discovered without the requisite affiliation. After one week, if you do not disclose your affiliation you will receive a suspension. A second infraction will result in a permanent ban.

Affiliations must be clearly displayed. You may NOT alter the default text size or color. The Gear Page trick of making the text tiny and light gray is not acceptable here.
