FORUM RULES ABOUT WEB-BASED LINKS TO MUSIC AND VIDEO'S

Based on latest discussions on this forum, and studiing copyright laws, it is necessary to state out new forum mandatory rules, effective immediately, so, here we are.

LINKS TO MUSIC & VIDEOS: what is legal/what is not.
NEW RULES in the forum state:

From now on in our forum users shal NOT POST TOPICS THAT containin the following :
• Requests for or links to MP3s, music videos, or other files of questionable legality
• Bootlegs

So, please do not POST A LINK TO music or videos which does not directly originate from an officially legal site.

An OFFICIALLY LEGAL SITE is: rammstein.com or rammstein.de, universal music, a legitimate music site like MTV or VIVA. The links must be direct and linked only to the approved site. Any links which have copied and transferred the music or videos from an official legal site to ANYWHERE else are NOT OFFICIAL.

• Do not ASK FOR A LINK to music or videos. If there is a legal site for either listening or viewing, xTERNAL will provide the information in the NEWS section of www.RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE.com.

WHAT YOU CAN DO in the forums: You can DISCUSS a new song or a new video.

WHAT YOU CANNOT DO in the forums: provide illegal links or ask for links, give directions of any kind as to where something might be found (examples: file-sharing, other fansites, etc.). Screen caps will be allowed (within reason) AFTER a video has been made available through an OFFICIAL LEGAL LINK. Fan remixes of songs will be allowed (within reason) after the song has been officially released.

The above restrictions are necessary not because we are being “damn babies” or “. The reason is simply that RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE has made the decision to not be a facilitator of illegal activities involving copyrighted material. The reason for that is also clear. Rammstein’s Management has shown aggressive behaviour in combating copyright infringement.

Anyone who violates the spirit of the aforementioned expansion/explanation of what the RULES mean here as applied to music and videos (and this also includes the "making of videos") will meet up with one of the following consequences:

POST BLOCKED, LINK ERASED AND WORSE.... BANNED IF NECESSARY.

If you have ANY questions about what may or may not be acceptable here, you can always PM a Moderator and ask first before posting something that might get you in trouble here.

•any links to www.youtube.com (or other sharing sites of a similar nature)are generally not allowed.
While some videos like fan made items or spoof animations are allowed, we do not allow linking to youtube. Oftentimes there is/are illegal videos of Rammstein performances to the side of the linked videos. Actual Rammstein Videos which are very illegal to be hosted by that site - therefore we cannot allow links to youtube to be allowed.

So, links to youtube are now allowed - ONLY IF it is a fanmade video by you, and does not contain bootleg footage or footage of live performances or released performances. Stills from photos found on the net are OK. A montage is OK. Clips of released footage are NOT OK.

Please try to understand that sometimes while we may allow a certain individuals fanmade videos, and deny another persons it is usually because the content in it could get the forums in trouble.

Also if some individuals post their fanmade video and it turns out to be bootleg footage that they filmed themselves at a concert and consider that "fanmade" - then we will have to reverse the ruling on allowing fanmade videos PERIOD!

Here is an update on what is considered "fanmade".
Fanmade is fanmade. You did it yourself. Like cut and paste. You creatd everything yourself. No footage filmed by someone else no clips. Still images are OK.
For example:
If you go out and find 6 banana slugs in the yard, dress them up in LAB outfits, and put the skinniest one in a paper boat and play the music to SEEMANN on a kazoo. That is fanmade.

If you have a coverband and you do your own video or you have footage of YOUR band's performance. That is fanmade.

If you have images that you sketched of how you think the video for a song should have been and you put it to music - I think we can allow that.

Use your creativity.

IF YOU SEE VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, REPORT IT BY USING THE EXCLAMATION MARK IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF RELEVANT POST.

          I AM JEALOUS

          Yesterday it was bad, today is even worse, much better, that word doesn't have the correct meaning of how i feel. I'm almost sick.

                  I read yesterday night that there was people queuing before midnight. So you'd not be alone.

                  Good luck, it's difficult but not impossible.

                      Yesterday, the Portuguese fans sent a message to Rammstein, in the first row.
                      "Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich? It would appear that eternal happiness is better, but this is really not so! After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing. Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness."

                            Woooooow, back home! I cannot really type much now, but I can just say it was AWESOME!

                            A guy jumped into Flake's boat... after 5 seconds, it was "still" funny. After 10 seconds, Flake was visibly annoyed, so was I!. They directed the boat to the B-stage, where they grasped the "enthusiastic fan". Basically, that spoiled one of the most awaited stunts, in my honest opinion, and Flake was clearly not happy...

                            Ok, more later...

                                So, here it goes...

                                We arrived to the LG Arena around 6.30 pm. Car park, bus shuttle and entrance: Done in 20 minutes. Very quick and confortable, no paranoic security staff pretending they are protecting the future of our species... The atmosphear was great. Access to the location was easy and crystal clear. I started to feel really excited when approaching the NEC in Birmingham, on the road, they were already displaying the "RAMMSTEIN" indication. It is quite cool not to take the exit for Birmingham, not to continue to Manchester, but to drive to "RAMMSTEIN" instead!.

                                Deathstars were quite good, although they are far from being by favourite band. As usual, power was short for them, and the sound was just ok. The started at 19.28, and they lasted there for (I think) 40-45 minutes.

                                The change of stage was quite quick, and Made in Germany started at 20.29. It lasted for 1h 57'. They enter from the left, which means we could see them at 10 m from us (We were in that side, seat tickets -my girlfriend is not very tall and we didn't want to miss a thing-) Stage B, bridge, and let's the fun start!

                                The order of the songs was the expected one, starting with Sonne. Mein Land was not played (oww), and the encores were played with German precision . I will omit unneccesary details about the concert itself, because it resulted to be a copy of the previous ones (no Apocalyptica, of course ). I think it was a perfect copy of the concert in the O2 Arena de previous day in London, so I refer to it.


                                As I alrady said, when the Flake jumped in the boat for sailing the sea of hands and sweat, he didn't probaly imagine he would have to share the ride... It was pretty dangerous, I think. They could have... how to say? Tilted the boat? Uhm, I forgot how to say that in English. Anyway, having a guy trying to jump inside your inflatable boat is never safe, and if this guy thinks that jumping in and out is not enough, he has to stay there with you, this is not cool. You could perfectly feel that Flake was unhappy. We didn't like it.

                                I really, really, really, enjoyed the first encore, on the B stage. Fireworks, lights, flamethrowers... all are very cool, but I want music in a concert, good music. Well, they delivered it. The songs on the B stage were furious and powerful, a good exercise for a band who has been there for nearly 20 years. "Here we are, that is what we are".

                                Some songs sounded to me... renewed. The keyboard in "Du hast" was very clean, sounded perfect, but I think it was slightly different to the album version or to other live versions (Live aus Berlin, Voelkerball). Anyway, it was great.

                                "Pussy", end of concert. Awesome song for finishing the show.

                                What I didn't like: The LG Arena was in a rush of closing down. No merchandising, no food, no nothing. Luckily, we bought our t-shirts before, but many people were disappointed. Also: Impossible to buy a chocolate bar, becuase "it can be messy and dangerous" (explain by a steward). Ah, ok... funny when you have a guy trying to burn a keyboard player!

                                What I loved: From the first compass to the last of the concert, the seamless jet of music, the lack of low frequency hearing for the following two hours after the concert... going to sleep and not being able to because you have Mann gegen Mann in your ears!!

                                I hope that fulfills your curiosity. Any doubt, just ask
