Forum Rules and FAQ
There's a few basic rules you are asked to follow.
1. Don't post pictures over 600 pixels wide with their img tags so the pictures don't stretch the board.
2. Don't quote img tags when quoting a picture so the same picture isn't posted over and over again.
3. Don't hyperlink the pictures. Meaning, unless they are a thumbnail, they should NOT be clickable.
4. Don't post more than 15 pictures a day in this thread. It helps control the flow of the thread and ensures that no one person is taking up a single page all to them self.
Please do not post pictures of any of Green Day’s family members/girlfriends unless they are official publicity photos. This means no paparazzi photos and no personal photos. Even if one of the guys is in the paparazzi or personal photos, they are not allowed. If the photos are not taken explicitly for the public and approved by the band for the public, they cannot be posted in the picture threads or used on the forum in any form. Billie Joe, Mike, and Tre are fairly private people. We need to respect their privacy and the privacy of their family members. This forum is dedicated to Green Day, not their families. Pictures of their kids/girlfriends/wives/brothers/sisters/parents/etc should not be posted all over the place. Please do not exploit the band.
If the family member or girlfriend is involved in an event or the band has given permission to post the specific picture(s) of the person, they may be posted on the forum. BUT, they can only be posted in appropriate threads. The picture(s) cannot be posted at random in the thread for the band member the family member is related to if they do not have that band member with them.
Example: A picture of Adrienne alone cannot be posted in Billie’s thread. If the picture was taken for an Adeline Street event, the picture may be posted in the news thread for that event, if there is one. If someone is looking for that specific picture at some point and requests it in the Picture Request Thread, the picture may be posted in there.
Requests for personal or paparazzi pictures (non-publicity pictures) of their kids, girlfriends, wives, brothers, sisters, parents, etc may not be made.
Violating this policy will result in a warning.
*If conversations in the threads have nothing to do with the pictures they will be deleted.
*If you repeatedly break the rules, your warning level will be raised.
*As a last resort the thread will be temporarily closed if there is too much spam/rule breaking.
General Information / FAQ
Before starting a new thread, use the search facility and take a look at the pinned threads (at least take a look at all the recent posts).
If you're looking for a specific picture/photoshoot, ask in the Picture Requests / Help Thread first. If no one helps you in the requests thread (try and ask more than once if you don't get any reply anyway), you can make a new topic about it.
