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.

    Interesting! I'm not exactly sure what they plan to do with this. Could be something, could be nothing I guess. Anyone in the group would get notifications of posts I think so maybe it's just to let dedicated fans know updates? Still seems odd.

    Rammstein have opened a new Facebook-fanpage. Is it a forerunner of new things to happen soon?

    ^You could be right. It was more a commentary to Snakes 'huge red flag'

    ^I don't see why this would be a lie. I guess when an award is won, they always choose one or two members to go and collect it, as they all have busy lives. The one member or two of them got sick at the last moment and therefore neither of them was able to make it after all. FYI: in Belgium, the Netherlands and Northern Germany almost 1/5 people are sich at home with the flu right now, this is some really weird pandemic thing going around. It's getting better now though.

    ^I sounds like they didn't think it was worth their while to collect it. And instead of saying 'we can't be bothered' they just said 'we got the flu'

    Sky sometimes posts things on his instagram page. Mostly pictures of Berlin and audio equipment, now he posted a pic with Richards guitar.

    I've notice 2 days ago, it was a little fuzz on sever Rammstein-related facebook pages about to short videos posted by Sky van Hoff. Of course, something studio related. But somehow they quickly disappeared and I never got the chance to see them. Is there anyone who knows something about this?

    We know the 3rd album does have a song with Till. I do feel the 2nd album wasn't as much as a success as he had hoped after promoting the album with quite a lot of interviews. He doesn't have the time to do all that travelling right now. I think the difference between Till (with Lindemann and his art) is that it seems he's not always with Rammstein when they write. I could be wrong but any images of the band working in the last year or two never shows Till. Not even when Chad from RHCP visited them. I think he comes in to the picture more once instrumentals are complete. Of course I could be wrong but that's how Till might have more time than Richard.

    Let's say Richard waits until after the next tour (maybe 2020?) that's 5 years since recording the actual album. It's all a bit weird lol

    ^Till works on art and Lindemann, Flake tours with his Heute hat die Welt Geburtstag... I'm sure Richard can also make time for his project.

    Maybe he should involve some more Rammstein folk into this. Do a few short gigs and let Paul do some guitars, bring Schneider in, invite Till for their duet... I'm telling you: in the end live performances would definetly do the trick. Maybe if Rammstein does some festivals in 2019 /2020 (gosh that 2nd one sounds so far away), he could play in early daytime for like half an hour / 45min or so with Emigrate.
