Graphics Team Member Opening Announcement

Hi everyone,

The Fan Forum Graphics Team is again looking for new members.

We are a group of users that are in charge of the design of each individual message board here.

If you would like to join and become a member of the team, please apply by sending me (via PM) two 230px X 100px audition graphics. Ideally, we would like to see one single celebrity graphic and one television show graphic (of your choice). We will make a decision as a team whether to let you join or ask for addition designs (for which you will at that point receive tips).

In addition, please see Jen's, Mel's and Rae's tutorials (and general tips) for some advice on how to make them. It will also be useful if to look at some graphics of the more recent boards that have been customized so that you can see what we're looking for.

If you prefer to get some feedback before you apply and see what you can improve, you can either visit our thread on the Fan Art board or send us a PM.

As a member of the team you will be expected to make at least one graphic each week and participate on the Graphics Team board on a regular basis. Please don't apply if you don't think you would be able to fulfill this commitment.

But please know that being a Graphics Team artist is not all about responsibilities. By becoming a member you will be able to change your Fan Forum name, have an influence on what your favourite boards will look like, and most of all you will have a LOT of fun sharing your talent with others!

If you have any questions, please let me or Rae know via PM or post in our information thread.

Good luck to all,
Graphics Team Manager

Forums On The Low Post Count Warning List - Please Read - Updated 1/15/2017

Hi everyone. We have a policy here that if a forum doesn't meet the minimum daily average of 15 Posts a Day when I do the Monthly Post Counts and/or if it goes without a post for more than 48 Hours, it gets placed on a Low Post Count Warning List, and after that, the forum is on probation for six months. If the forum meets the minimum daily average of 15 Posts a Day and/or if it doesn't go without a post for more than 48 Hours during that time, it's taken off the list, but if doesn't meet the daily average for a second time and/or it goes without a post for more than 48 Hours during that time, it's closed.

Up until now, the Low Post Count Warning List has been shown on the Moderators Forum, but the Moderators and Managers and I felt that it would be a good idea to post this list here so everyone can see it, so no one can say that they weren't aware that a board was in danger of closing if it closes.

Therefore, here is the current Low Post Count Warning List with the date each forum was placed on the list and the date they'll be taken off the list. I will update this list every month or as necessary.
  1. Nina Dobrev - July 2016 to February 2017
  2. Reality TV - July 2016 to January 2017
  3. The Flash -July 2016 to January 2017
  4. The Walking Dead - July 2016 to January 2017
  5. Rupert Grint - July 2016 to January 2017
  6. Chris Hemsworth - August 2016 to February 2017
  7. Kristen Bell - September 2016 to March 2017
  8. One Tree Hill - September 2016 to March 2017
  9. Eva Green - September 2016 to March 2017
  10. Elizabeth Mitchell - October 2016 to April 2017
  11. Jared Padalecki - October 2016 to April 2017
  12. Ashley Tisdale - October 2016 to May 2017
  13. Jake Gyllenhaal - November 2016 to May 2017

More information about this topic can be found at the Boredom Busters thread at the Info Center Forum.

You can also find more information about this topic on the individual forums on this list.

Thank you.

Official Fan Forum Rules and Guidelines - Updated 1/31/16

Fan Forum Rules and Guidelines

Note: Any recent updates to these rules and guidelines will be shown in blue.

Hi everyone, and welcome to Fan Forum! We want your posting experience here to be an enjoyable one, so we’ve set rules and guidelines for the discussion forums on this website. We’ve divided these rules and guidelines into specific areas:

Basic Membership:
  • No advertisement posts or threads are allowed on our forums. Solicitation of any kind, including direct linking to events such as charity auctions, is not permitted unless it’s pre-approved by the Management Team. Posters engaging in this type of behavior will lose their membership rights and be removed. If you notice that anyone is posting this type of spam in the forums, please report them here.
  • Direct links to illegal television episode or music download websites are not permitted. The purpose of threads for television shows or music from those shows is to discuss those shows or that music, and they’re not meant to be used as a means to illegally download television episodes or songs.
  • Be respectful. Not everyone is going to agree with you at all times. It’s perfectly fine to disagree with someone as long as it is done respectfully, but do not attack other posters. Please treat other members with the same respect and courtesy that you would want for yourself.
  • Don’t register multiple accounts here. Using multiple accounts here can result in the loss of posting privileges for all of your registered accounts.
  • Anti thread titles should be respectful, related to the show, and only directed at the fictional characters or couples. Anything considered by management to be derogatory towards real people will be removed and may warrant an infraction.
  • Avatars and signatures that are designed to put down any fictional character or couple or their fans or which make any kind of threatening remark are not permitted, because they can be seen all over Fan Forum and they take away from the positive posting atmosphere that we strive for here.

Note: Failure to adhere to the above rules can result in the loss of your posting privileges. Rule infractions may result in warnings or points assigned to members’ accounts at the discretion of the Moderator Managers and Website Administrator. Members who accumulate too many points will be automatically banned according to the following levels:

3 Points = 3 day ban
4 Points = 7 day ban
5 Points = 2 week ban
6 Points = Permanent ban

Conflict Resolution:
  • If you have a problem with anything or any person at Fan Forum, don’t deal with it on the forums here. Please send a Private Message (PM) to a Moderator or a Moderator Manager describing the problem, and they’ll work with you to try and get the problem resolved.
  • If you have a problem with a moderator on one of the boards that you post on, send a Private Message to a Moderator Manager describing the problem. Do not contact one of the co-moderators of the moderator that you’re having problems with, as it’s the Moderator Managers’ responsibility to resolve disputes between members and moderators in a fair and impartial way. You can also send a Private Message to the person that you’re having a problem with directly if you do not want to involve the Fan Forum staff.

Posting Etiquette:
  • Fan Forum is considered to be a PG-13 forum community, so please keep that in mind when posting here.
  • Before starting a new thread, please look to see if there already is a topic discussing the same thing. Duplicate threads will be closed down. Also, please make sure your thread title accurately reflects what the thread is about.
  • Keep “chatting” type conversations down to a minimum on the discussion threads on our forums, as they detract from legitimate discussions. Every forum on this website has an off topic thread where you can chat with your fellow posters, so use those threads for that purpose.
  • Do not post in all caps, as it’s considered Internet lingo for yelling. If a thread title or post is typed in all caps, it will be edited or deleted. dO nOt PoSt LiKe THiS, eItHEr (this is also known as sticky caps). Also, don’t abuse the privilege of being able to post using different font sizes and colors, or your post will also be edited or deleted.
  • Please don’t post solely to increase your post count. Please contribute to the discussions here with your posts. Whenever possible, please edit your post if you have something to add to what you originally said instead of immediately posting after yourself.
  • When a continuation thread has reached 300 posts, please start a new thread.

Posting Pictures:
  • Do not post the same picture or avatar (icon) over and over in a thread. Also, do not quote pictures or avatars (icons) - if you quote someone, please edit out the image before submitting your reply. If you don’t follow these rules, your picture(s) or avatar(s) (icon(s)) will be deleted.
  • Please note that when you post pictures directly from another website, (also known as hot linking) you’re basically using that website’s bandwidth. Every time someone at Fan Forum views the picture on our forums, the owner of the website that hosts the image gets charged for bandwidth use. This is known as “bandwidth theft.” We would prefer it if you would post a text link to the picture using the [ url ] tag instead of displaying the picture in a post using the [ img ] tag, because then the owner of the website only gets charged for bandwidth use if people click on the link.
  • We do not authorize posting or linking to copyrighted pictures, and if we discover that anyone has posted copyrighted pictures, those pictures will be removed.
  • Please don’t post pictures any wider than 800 pixels so you don’t stretch the post table. In consideration of members on dial-up, please post links to larger pictures (also known as HQ pictures) or post thumbnails of those pictures.
  • Please respect people’s privacy and don’t post any celebrity pictures from private sources. This includes fan art (manipulations, wallpapers, avatars etc.) made from such pictures.
  • Please be aware that the message boards here are public forums, so if you post pictures of yourself or any other personal information on these forums, that information can be viewed and copied anywhere on the Internet.
  • Please credit the person who made the avatar you’re using in your signature whenever possible. In addition, if you post fan art here, please credit the person who made it. If you see someone using an avatar or fan art that you created without giving you the proper credit for creating it, contact a Moderator or a Moderator Manager.

Questions and Information:
  • We have an Info Center Forum where members can go for help and support, so please take any questions you have about how the boards work there.
  • There is a thread on the Info Center Forum called Index & Introductions that is very helpful to new members, and we also have a Questions thread on that forum where you can find out information about this website and your account here.

Fan Fiction:
  • You can directly post fan fiction and open threads to discuss fan fiction on the individual message boards here.
  • You can link to Fan Fiction websites, but you can’t link to other Fan Fiction message boards.


Information is considered to be a spoiler if it details something that has not yet been broadcast anywhere in the world.
  • The following limited spoilers are allowed in a designated discussion thread on the forums here as long as the title includes the word Spoilers:
    • Information officially released by the network such as sneak peaks, filming pictures and episodes stills, or cast interviews that hint at future storylines can be posted in the designated spoiler discussion thread at all forums.
    • Spoilers regarding the character an actress or actor is playing in a TV show are permitted at their own Male or Female Celebrity Forum. These discussions should be limited to character information and not overall show spoilers.
    • Spoiler threads for upcoming movies are permitted on the Movies forum or on forums that are devoted to a movie franchise.
    • Spoilers about upcoming book releases are allowed in their discussion threads at the Books and Writing Forum or forums that are devoted to a book franchise. The word Spoilers can be removed from the title after the official release date.
  • Spoilers should only be discussed if they meet the above limited conditions and any further spoilers should be discussed at the Spoilers Forum.
  • Animations, artwork, icons and other such material can be posted within these threads but they must not be used across Fan Forum or any other thread.
  • Discussion and information sharing must be limited to the listed threads that have spoilers indicated in the title.
  • If you're unsure about what might be considered to be a spoiler please continue to use the spoiler tags, shown here: [sp][/sp]
  • Pictures from promos that have aired on television, been shown at the movie theatre, or are from general promotional material at official websites and/or aired on places like YouTube or published in magazines are not considered to be spoilers.
  • Pictures of clips, episode stills and filming pictures of scenes from an upcoming episode or movie that are available on the Internet and have not been aired on television or have not been shown at the movie theatre before the movie is released are considered to be spoilerish, and they should only be posted in designated threads for the upcoming episode or movie.
  • Avatars made from promos that have already aired on television, been shown at the movie theatre, or are from general promotional material at official websites and/or aired on places like YouTube or published in magazines are not considered to be spoilers.
  • Avatars made from sources other than the ones mentioned above should not be used until after the episode airs or until the movie is released, because avatars can be seen all over Fan Forum, and we want to respect the wishes of members that don’t want to see any spoilers for an upcoming episode or movie.
  • You may use normal font options like bolding, italics and colors, but the largest font size allowed in a signature is Size 3.
  • The only thing allowed in a signature other than text are Fan Forum smilies, up to a maximum of four.
  • Links to other websites are fine, but direct links to other message boards are not allowed.
  • Signature blocks should be no taller than a 100 X 100 avatar.

Members can check each forum to see if they have any rules in addition to the site-wide rules listed here, and please contact the forum moderators if you have any questions about those additional rules.
