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.

        Maybe its time to create a section where to move garbage threads?

          Maybe someone wanted to start the discussion, but unfortunately gave no starting opinion...

          Whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.

            Richard Zven Kruspe

            Name: Richard Zven Kruspe
            Date of birth: 24th Juni 1967
            Place of birth: Wittenberg, Germany
            Height: 1,76 m
            Weight: 88 kg
            Color of eyes: Blue
            Natural hair color: Brown
            Distinguishing marks: pierced ears; smokes
            Place in group: Guitarist
            Usual place on scene: On the front, on the right
            Previous group: Orgasm Death Gimmicks (guitarist, vocalist)

            Lead guitarist and co-founder of German industrial band “Rammstein” along with drummer Christoph “Doom” Schneider. Former member of Orgasm Death Gimmicks formed in the West after he escaped over the green border between Austria an Hungary. He was born in Wittenberg, Germany. He has two older sisters and an older brother. His parents divorced when he was young. His mother remarried, and he did not get along with his step-father. They moved to the village of Weisen when he was young.
            At the age of nineteen, bored with the apathetic music scene in his home town, he moved to East Berlin and lived on the Lychener Straße and “made music all day’. For two years, Richard lived in an apartment with a drum kit and a guitar, and he made music by himself because he did not know anybody there. ‘It was a lonely time’ according to Kruspe, but he used it to explore music.

            Emigrate is a metal band based in New York, led by Richard Z. Kruspe, the lead guitarist of the German band Rammstein.
            Kruspe started the band in 2005, when Rammstein decided to take a year off from touring and recording. In many interviews, Kruspe says the idea for Emigrate came to him around Rammstein’s Mutter era.

            He speaks excellent English with a strong American accent. Richard Kruspe is always immaculately dressed.

            He has three childs Khira Li Lindemann (born in 1991), Merlin Besson (born in 1992) and Charlotte Bossieux born in (2011).

            There it is, a little bio about Richard. He has been my favorite member of the band since I started listening to them about 10 years ago. He also is my inspiration when I started playing electric guitar!

                Kruspe

                Richard Kruspe was one of the band members that always wanted to play at Madison Square Gardens, which came to fruition in December 2010.

                Kruspe recently stated in an interview that he may be moving his North American residence from New York to LA. This information was given in an interview with the Gauntlet. There is a link through Affenknecht.

                The Interview can be found at the following link:

                  Btw, sorry, if it's a little off topic but since this thread is dedicated to Richard...
                  Does any of you listen to Emigrate? In my opinion, I like most of the songs a lot. Pretty similar guitar riffs than used on Rammstein songs (mainly in Reise, Reise and Rosenrot albums). Many says that they think Richard can't sing...well, I might like Till's deeper voice more (and the german language), but I think Richard's singing voice is good also.

                    I actually never cared about that Emigrate thing. I hope Kruspe ditches that project and goes back 100% to Rammstein.

                      He has been working on a new material for upcoming Emigrate album, as seen in the gauntlet interview...But I think he's now 100% with Rammstein and what the whole band is planning up to, and concentrates to Emigrate after Rammstein decides to quit (I wish they would never quit!!)

                      EDIT: And btw, happy birthday Richard!!

                          In my opinion, Kruspe is great during Rammstein interviews. He is extremely personable and likeable. And really, really cute. He is definately the pretty boy in the band lol...

                            Haha, it's been clear to me since I started listen to this band that many female fan of Rammstein admires Kruspe's looks I'm a man and I'm 100 % straight so I don't watch him that way. He has always been my favourite member of the band, I've always just liked his style, his performance on the stage and of course music he has made!

                              I listen to Emigrate sometimes, they're pretty good but they'd never replace Rammstein
