Forum Rules and Guidelines


Our goal is to continue to have one of the best IUBB Forums on the internet. In order for that to continue, we want to make these forums a fun family-friendly community. Most curse words will not be allowed, no nudity, no soliciting, no bashing, no derailing of threads, and other things that are not forum appropriate. We are committed to protecting our members. We will not put up with anything that goes against that. All of the following rules and guidelines will be followed by everyone, no exceptions.



Our disciplinary guidelines:

1st offense – Verbal Warning

2nd Offense – One Week Ban

3rd Offense – One Month Ban

4th Offense – Permanent Ban



We don’t like nor want to ban anyone but in some cases, there may be no other choice. With that said however all offenses are not always equal. Determining the severity of an offense is at the discretion of the Owner and Moderator team. A post containing multiple curse words won’t be treated the same as a post containing personal threats, racial terms, or things along a similar narrative.




No Cursing – We understand that sometimes cursing happens but please try to keep it to an absolute minimum. We do have filters in place so that should cut down on a lot of that.




No Nudity/Porn – This is a family friendly website. We will not tolerate anyone who posts pornographic material.  A lot of members have children so be sure to think whether that is something you would want your own children to accidently come across.




No Soliciting – We understand that you are wanting to promote your own website, merchandise, etc., but you will not be allowed to advertise for personal and business gain. The proper way to do so is to have a link in your signature for your website, merchandise, etc. There will be no soliciting in posts, only in signatures that you set in your profile. Soliciting will be dealt with according to set forum disciplinary action.





No Bashing – This means that you will not attack, harass, or make fun of any poster at any time. Our members will always come first so under no circumstances will we ever allow someone to be bullied or harassed on this forum.





Thread Derailment – This rule is about not posting in threads that have nothing to do with the topic, intended to take away from the point of the thread. We understand that sometimes threads go off topic and everyone is having fun and that is ok, but please don’t bring agendas from other threads into one that has nothing to do with what the thread is about.





Premium Content/Linking – Do not post premium content on the forums that cost money to get. It is not fair to the writers and websites that work extremely hard to get that content. That will not be allowed, and will be taken down immediately. Linking means that articles cannot be copied and pasted without a link to its writer/website. Those websites and writers need to be honored for their work.




Reports/Complaints – We as a mod team want everyone to feel comfortable messaging one of us if you have any issues. There is usually always someone on and we will take care of it as soon as possible.
