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: or, 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

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:


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 (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.

  • Masks contest [LIFAD community members only]

    Yesterday the LIFAD community launched a new contest for their members. The prize of the contests are 2 set of plastic masks like these:

    Here is the official description:

    Did you ever want to personify one of the Rammstein guys?

    Surely there are certain scenes/moves or poses from the stage performance that you find particularly appealing - for example, the "Till-hammer" or "Flake Dance"?

    Or are you fond of a video scene (official videos / singles), such as Oliver and Paul as monks in "Rosenrot", or Richard and Schneider, working hard as "dwarfs" in the "Sonne" video?

    Now the chance is yours!

    We are issuing a mask contest.

    The task of the contest is:

    Copy a scene/move, or a pose visually (from the live shows or videos) - or do it better, photograph it, and upload the photo to this thread.
    You can also use the mask generator - - if you want to remain anonymous.

    There can be more than one person in the picture, if the scene requires it, but only one image per participant is allowed.

    Deadline for submission is Jan. 23, 00:00 clock, German time.

    The winners will be chosen by the webteam during that week.

    The price is one of 12 plastic masks of the band members ("Made in Germany").
    We will do our best to send the winners the mask that fits his/her pose. However, there is no guarantee!

    Please post in only one of the threads english OR german, to help us keep a better overall view of the contestants.

    Also it will help if you also write what scene/which band member the picture is of.

    We wish all participants good luck!

    Best regards,

    Please note that you can only participate in this contest if you become a member of the LIFAD community. non-members cannot win any prize.

    "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."

    It would be funny to see all that stuff

    BTW, I can't see the last sentence, it's too small.

      I got a membership to the fan club yesterday but I can't log in to the LIFAD community. I keep getting an error message when I try to log in saying "Server error
      The website encountered an error while retrieving It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly."
      Anyone facing the same problem?

        You'll have to wait for Snake, Seven or Sandy. Sorry, I can't help.


        • #5
          Snake are you around?


          • #6
            He's not, and probably won't in some days.

            Sandy had problems too, hope you share the same one. But with that error message I don't think so . She registered and then it was solved. You can read it here

            Maybe you can ask for help to the admins of LIFAD community Facebook page, if you've got a Facebook profile of course.
