This is a reminder that you should not run programs from untrusted sources.
Just as people can post images that are obscene before we remove them, people can post links to malicious programs.

So if someone posts it in a thread here at xbox-scene, that does not make it inherently safe to run.

ADMIN EDIT: trusted source -> XBINS

I forgot to do this the other day...

Welcome SHANAFAN, HEINRICH, and BRAHM2 as HEAD MODS. They've worked hard.. and deserve the position. I'm sure they'll work even harder still.

Good news for all of the head mods.. soon we'll be ready to move the site over to the new soft. When we do.. your HEAD MOD accounts will have access to TEMP BAN/MUTE Privs. Eg. 0-300 hours/days.

This should give you guys the responsiveness you need to maintain the forums during our absence. (me, xan, syrus.)

The new soft is still being tested.. and we like what we see. To the average user.. the differences will be transparent. (almost)

:::sigh:::

OK, people, I've said all this before, so I'll make it very short. Several people have been banned from this board recently. They were TOLERATED for entirely too long.

If you cannot accept that, please PM HSDEMONZ directly to be banned, rather than waste our time with pissy little complaint posts (I'm pionting at you, Hulk, erm, Plehem12). It really is a shame that some have been caught up in this mess, but crossing the line is crossing the line.

Moderators and admins are the FINAL AUTHORITY. Whiners and criers can check their angst at the door when visiting, because your antics are not welcome here.


Thank you, those who are actually reading this post. We are trying to KEEP Xbox-Scene the #1 Xbox site (and one of the top 100 sites in the WORLD in ANY category), the best site for information ahd support for the Xbox, and most importantly, a FRIENDLY place for people to chat without being constantly insulted and harrassed.

POST COUNT was disabled MONTHS ago in non-technical forums. This includes General, Comments/Complaints, Comedy, BST. It was disabled to cut back on spamming, post count races, and has generally worked well so far.

All threads in the future regarding this much-discussed topic will probably be trashed or merged into a big junky thread (linked for ease of mod merging).

CONTESTS/GIVEAWAYS
================

Any NON-SPONSORS from now on who want to promote themselves, or their shops etc.. must now contact XANTIUM or MYSELF before posting a THREAD in GENERAL or other popular areas.

For the Time being.. if your shop want to give away goods/prizes in your B/S/T thread.. you may do so. EDIT: NON SPONSORS ARE NO LONG ALLOWED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
XBOX SCENE is not responsible in any way for any of these contests. Prizes are furnished by the shops involved. No Guarantee of fitness or mechantability of the prizes.

Current Pinned contests from NON-SPONSORS are allowed to continue. Future contests posted in core forums need to be approved by XANTIUM or MYSELF.

EBAY
-----

Do not posts links to EBAY or other auctions.. that are selling BACKUPS (either HD based or CD/DVD Media based)

XS consider's it the same as you selling them in BST.. and you'll be treated accordingly.

We don't need people here "announcing" that EBAY lets some of that shit in the back door.

Additional rules posted in this thread.. are considered GLOBAL across the site. Contact me if you need clarification.

Click-Me Contests.. plz don't post these in General or other forums in an effort up up yours or a friends contest standing. It's tend to end up be ethically unsound.. and unfair to others who don't hound people. Bottom line.. XS isn't here to help you or your friends profit in a contest. We'll consider this spam.

BIT TORRENTS - Links to TORRENTS are not allowed on XS. Well over 95% of all torrents links or gate sites lead to warez.. so we simple won't allow the links to them here.

I might review this down the road.

No XS Staff member will ever contact you publicly or via PM to donate money to XS.

XS is supports by those pretty ads you see scatttered all over the place.
