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.

  • Yet another nomination in Metal Hammer

    Metal Hammer Magazine has launched yet another poll, this time to elect the best Rock & Metal singer in History. As you might have guessed, Till Lindemann is amoung the nominees. You can cast your vote in this link:

    http://www.metal-hammer.de/magazin/f...er-voting.html
    "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."

            Voted, but in all honesty I had to give the first 3 places to Axl Rose, Bruce Dickinson and Dio. Nothing in Metal (or music for that matter) gets before those guys IMO.

              I actually had no idea this was for the greatest people in metal of all time... so my votes would have been different. Never really thought of GNR as metal though, so I didn't vote for Axl Rose anywhere. Then again, I don't consider NIN metal (barring Broken and parts of TDS) but then I voted for Trent Reznor second behind Till.... I'm so biased.

                There you have a point. There are many in there that shouldn't be in a metal list (despite the fact that I like them, what are Cobain and Vedder doing in that list?). And on quality: I seriously ask myself why the singer of Immortal is in the list...

                NIN is metal to me. Robin Finck sometimes makes electronical sounding riffs and his contributions made the band officially into the founder of industrial metal.

                  Eh, I'm pretty sure that Ministry had made the transition from the early synthpop sound into industrial metal at the point NIN was founded. And to be fair, the exact heaviness of NIN does tend to vary a lot. Just compare Still to Broken.

                    I hate to admit it, but you're right! I forgot about bands like Ministry and White Zombie, they were indeed way earlier. I once again made an ass of myself...
                    Well, most bands vary a lot; therefore it's always hard to classify them within one genre. I'd still count them as metal as I think the majority of their songs (and their typical sound) is very metal to me.

                      But doesn't the title say best Rock and Metal singers? So it makes sense for Cobain and Axl Rose being there. Well anyway, I think they could've at least added Maynard James Keenan.

                        Either way, I think we can universally agree that the guy from Nickelback didn't deserve his place on that list.

                        Well, it the award is being presented by Metal Hammer Germany and most of the nominees are metal singers, so they do look kind of out-of-place.

                          Axl Rose can be metal to me, Cobain not really. Maynard James Keenan is welcome for me in the list, although I don't think he stands a change (nor does Lindemann, I fear).

                            I think it is a bit misleading that the main title is "Rock and Metal singer", and then in the poll they only say "Metal". Half of them, if so, are not metal singers.

                            But, considering that they probably meant "Rock and Metal" singers, I think it is a fair list. Not perfect, because that is impossible.

                            Finally, Till is way behind many people in there. I agree with Waidmann.

                              What the hell? Steve Perry?! hahahahaha! They left out Otep dammit. She is much better than Arch Enemy or Lacuna Coil. I was pleasantly surprised to see Bon Scott though.
