These are the general guidelines for the entire site.
 
  
===Tracker Guidelines===
 
  
These guidelines exist to protect fair users and to keep BoxTorrents a happy community.
+
=General Guidelines=
<ol style="list-style-type: square">
+
These guidelines apply for the entire site (Tracker, Forums, Blog, Wiki and IRC channels).
 +
* NO advertising allowed without staff permission.
 +
* NO pornography-related material.
 +
** Relevant hentai graphics allowed in torrent descriptions of hentai material
 +
** Hentai discussions not allowed on forums (except in the Hentai forum).
 +
** No linking to loli/shota material
 +
* NO flaming, no sexist/racist/religious/discriminatory comments.
 +
* NO group/staff/site bashing or insulting.
 +
* RESPECT other members. If you yourself do not like being mistreated or disrespected, don't go doing it to others.
 +
* Do not use colour excessively on comments, forum posts, and in our IRC channel.
 +
 
 +
[[Account Restrictions|Warnings, suspensions and/or bans]] may be dealt for flouting the above rules.
 +
 
 +
When addressing staff:
 +
* Please under no circumstance disrespect the mods. They patrol BakaBT for the community, volunteering their time helping out.
 +
* We will NOT tolerate any abuse towards any members of the staff (doing so may result in a possible ban).
 +
* If you feel you have been mistreated by a staff member, ''do not insult or bitch at them''. Contact one of the [[Staff List#Admins|administrators/owners]] so we can resolve this in a civil manner.
 +
 
 +
Situations not covered by the rules will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If you see any infringement of rules and it doesn't look like any action has been taken, [[FAQ#How_do_I...|report it through the appropriate channels]]. If you have any questions you can find us at [[IRC|#bakabt-support on irc.rizon.net]] or leave us a PM.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
 
 +
===FINAL NOTE===
 +
'''<span style="font-size:110%;">Like all groups that do not like wasting time on internet ethics, BakaBT staff reserve the right to make final decisions without further explanation. We enforce fairness based on our own judgement. This site is not a democracy.</span>'''<br>
 +
If you just received your first ban for pushing things a little too far and would like to be unbanned, the best way to do so is to drop by [[IRC|#bakabt-support]], politely explain your point of view in a few lines and put in a request to be unbanned. If you choose to push the issue, insist on an explanation, demand a re-analysis of the situation, or tell us how to do our moderating etc, expect a full ban (on IRC channel, tracker and forums).
 +
 
 +
=Tracker Guidelines=
 +
These guidelines exist to protect fair users and to keep BakaBT a happy community.
 +
* Do not go against staff members' wishes.
 +
* Do not upload your private torrent files (.torrent files that you downloaded when logged in) to other trackers.
 +
* [[FAQ#Can I upload your torrents to other trackers?|Do not hotlink to our torrent files]] from other sites, link to the description page instead.
 +
* '''[[Account Restrictions#Warnings|If your overall ratio is too low, your account will be warned]].'''
 +
* Only [[BT Clients#Whitelist|whitelisted]] torrent clients/applications may be used. Do not ask for [[BT Clients#Blacklist|blacklisted]] clients to be whitelisted.
 +
* Stat-hacking/cheating in any form may result in [[Account Restrictions#Bans|bans]] with or without warning. That means attempting to modify your data transfer statistics in any way.
 +
* No linking to sites/trackers containing blacklisted material.
 +
* No posting of "please seed", "please approve this", "when will this be approved", "will seed this", "will download this", "thanks" and other similarly useless comments in the torrent comments page. [[Account Restrictions#Why was I warned?|Users who post such comments will have their accounts warned]]. Complaints of a release's file size will also not be tolerated. Torrent comments are strictly for comments relating to the torrent and its content (i.e. not a ranting place for you).
 +
* Multi-accounting is not allowed. [[Account Restrictions#Why was my account disabled?|Users suspected of multi-accounting will have their accounts suspended or warned]].
 +
* No use of offensive language (rape, fuck, cum, etc.) in user nicknames. [[Account Restrictions#Suspensions|Users with such nicknames will have their accounts suspended]].
  
    <li>Do not go against the moderators wishes.</li>
 
    <li>Do not upload our torrents to other trackers.</li>
 
    <li>Do not hotlink our torrents from other sites, link to the description page instead.</li>
 
    <li>Disruptive behaviour in the forums will result in posting rights being revoked.</li>
 
    <li>Low ratios may result in consequences, including warnings and bans.</li>
 
    <li>Any and all forms of hacking or cheating may result in permanent or temporary bans without warning.</li>
 
    <li>Warned users are only able to seed torrents, if they want the warning removed they will need to seed until their ratio is high enough (usually 1.0).</li>
 
    <li>Having more than one account is not allowed and will result in a ban.</li>
 
</ol>

 +
** Note that we are not a support forum for generic software/hardware issues (there are better places for that). You may ask about problems you have with other trackers or files you downloaded from elsewhere, but do not be surprised or angry to find that you do not get a reply, or that the thread is locked.
  
A situation not covered in this concise set of rules will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Results may vary. If you see anyone breaking rules and it doesn't look like any action has been taken by a mod, PM a mod to let us know in case we missed it. If you have any questions you can find us at #box-support on irc.deltaanime.net or leave us a PM. The guidelines are updated frequently; we will inform you of any changes.

You are only allowed to upload (completed) anime and manga or related material: Series, OST, Movie, OVA, Manga, Hentai, Official Artbook. We also allow Live Action adaptations of anime/manga and OSTs from anime/manga related Games or Live Action shows. We typically only allow one version of a show but we also allow an additional dual audio (DVD) version and an HD version (720p and up).
 
  
Not allowed
 
<ol style="list-style-type: square">
 
    <li>Loli/shota material* (that means no linking to it either!)</li>

    <li>Incomplete series (we do allow seasons or arcs if the show/manga in question is very long).</li>
 
    <li>We do not permit non-Japanese dubs of a show unless:</li>
 
</ol>
 
<ol style="list-style-type: square; padding-left:15px;">
 
    <li>It is the original language (such as Afro Samurai)</li>
 
    <li>There is no other version available (i.e., the show is very rare)</li>
 
    <li>It is accompanied by the original dub (dual audio)</li>
 
</ol>
 
<ol style="list-style-type: square">
 
    <li>Fan made material including doujinshi (artbooks and manga MUST be official).</li>
 
    <li>Games (including anime-related or anime-styled).</li>
 
    <li>ISOs (including DVD-rips of anime).</li>
 
    <li>Videos not packaged in .mkv, .avi, .ogm, .mp4 (exceptions will only be granted if no other version is available)</li>

    <li>Any releases from Dattebayo.</li>
 
    <li>Anything released by Anime-4ever, Anime-HQ and Anime-Supreme may only be uploaded by the appropriate group's appointed distro members.</li>
 
    <li>When making a description, do not hotlink images without permission.  You may hotlink images from sites that expressly allow hotlinking.</li>
 
</ol>
 
If we see someone uploading a loli/shota torrent (will be judged by forum users and moderators) the torrent will be removed and the user will be sent a warning. A ban may be incurred if uploading is found to be deliberate or if the user has had at least 2 warnings before.

==#BakaBT==
 +
These guidelines exist to protect the sanity and happiness of IRC users.
 +
* No flaming. No spamming. No unsolicited advertising of site/services.
 +
* No excessive use of colours. ''Some'' colour formatting in IRC scripts is allowed.
 +
** Exception: the word "<span style="color: magenta;">fabulous</span>" may be highlighted ''only in magenta''.
 +
* No using capslock as typing cruise control. In other words, no excessive use of capital letters, or other forms of abuse of capital letters (such as random capitalisation).
 +
* No discussion of religion/drugs and other disapproved topics.<br>We try to stay liberal, but also have to consider the overall situation when it comes to these topics.<br>A torrent community is not the place for serious discussion of these topics.<br>If you want a serious discussion, find a more appropriate channel.
 +
* No use of offensive language (rape, fuck, cum etc) in user nicknames. (This includes names from banned topics and impersonation.)
 +
* No WB scripts. IF you really like WBs, type them yourself manually or use a quotable database (such as [http://chalamius.se/quotes/ Chalamius']).
 +
* No automated messages, except the ones explicitly allowed by BakaBT staff.
 +
* No posting of pornographic-related material in the channel. Users caught posting them may find themselves banned. (You're allowed to discuss or request them sent privately).
  
 +
==#bakabt-support==
 +
* This channel serves as a support channel '''for account-related issues only'''. For other enquiries, users should read the wiki, then post in the forums if there is no information in the wiki on the issue.
 +
* Users are not to PM staff unless asked to.
 +
* Users without any business on #bakabt-support will be kicked. Those with auto-rejoin will have their IPs banned until auto-rejoin is disabled.
  
===Preferences===
 
In general we prefer:
 
<ol style="list-style-type: square">
 
    <li>h264 encodes over XviD encodes because h264 is more space efficient.</li>
 
    <li>XviD, DivX or h264 encodes, other codecs are not widely supported and accepted (this includes but is not limited to MPEG, WMV, RM, QT and Indeo).</li>
 
    <li>(styled) softsubs over hardsubs.</li>
 
    <li>FLAC as a lossless format for soundtracks (OSTs) because FLAC has wide support and is not proprietary.</li>
 
    <li>that you do not add archives to your torrent unless uploading manga. Refer to the FAQ for more information.</li>
 
    <li>that you do not offer files released by speed fansubbers or otherwise inferior quality releases when high quality will be available in the near future.</li>
 
</ol>
 
Offers may be rejected if they do not match our preferences.
 
  
Also, torrent files need to be flagged as private before being offered. Any torrent that is not flagged private will be immediately rejected.
 
  
With regards to your torrent description, please refer to our FAQ for guidelines.
 
As with forum regulations, no advertising will be permitted in torrent descriptions. If any is found or reported, the uploader will be warned for a minimum of 4 weeks. Repeat offenses will result in a ban.

Site Rules and Regulations
A must read


General Guidelines

These guidelines apply for the entire site (Tracker, Forums, Blog, Wiki and IRC channels).

  • NO advertising allowed without staff permission.
  • NO pornography-related material.
    • Relevant hentai graphics allowed in torrent descriptions of hentai material
    • Hentai discussions not allowed on forums (except in the Hentai forum).
    • No linking to loli/shota material
  • NO flaming, no sexist/racist/religious/discriminatory comments.
  • NO group/staff/site bashing or insulting.
  • RESPECT other members. If you yourself do not like being mistreated or disrespected, don't go doing it to others.
  • Do not use colour excessively on comments, forum posts, and in our IRC channel.

Warnings, suspensions and/or bans may be dealt for flouting the above rules.

When addressing staff:

  • Please under no circumstance disrespect the mods. They patrol BakaBT for the community, volunteering their time helping out.
  • We will NOT tolerate any abuse towards any members of the staff (doing so may result in a possible ban).
  • If you feel you have been mistreated by a staff member, do not insult or bitch at them. Contact one of the administrators/owners so we can resolve this in a civil manner.

Situations not covered by the rules will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If you see any infringement of rules and it doesn't look like any action has been taken, report it through the appropriate channels. If you have any questions you can find us at #bakabt-support on irc.rizon.net or leave us a PM.


FINAL NOTE

Like all groups that do not like wasting time on internet ethics, BakaBT staff reserve the right to make final decisions without further explanation. We enforce fairness based on our own judgement. This site is not a democracy.
If you just received your first ban for pushing things a little too far and would like to be unbanned, the best way to do so is to drop by #bakabt-support, politely explain your point of view in a few lines and put in a request to be unbanned. If you choose to push the issue, insist on an explanation, demand a re-analysis of the situation, or tell us how to do our moderating etc, expect a full ban (on IRC channel, tracker and forums).
