Discussion Rules

We are a community. We aim for a self governing community. That means you are responsible for your own behaviour not other people's. We ask that instead of worrying about what others are doing (that is what the moderators are for) you only worry about what you do on the site.

As such, please follow these very simple rules.

1. The community is a welcoming place to all. We expect you to welcome others and share your tips and helpful hints. Think before you post. Is your post respectful? If not, do not post. Is it insulting? Do not post. You get the idea. Write... read through... post or just move on

So this rule encompasses all things welcoming. Be nice. Be tolerant. Be respectful. Be polite at all times.

No Shouting, arguing, hatred, insults or bad feeling. This includes against the site or its staff.

2. Do not tell people what you think will sell or not. Nor how much images are worth. Just technical aspects that may help them be chosen by buyers. The more buyers (and artists) who visit and are happy, the more will follow. That is good for all of us.

3. Do not swear or upload any images or links that may be adult only. The site has all ages on it. Restrict adult language and content to adult sites.

4. Do not respond to people who are rude, insulting or anything else non-community minded. You will have to be removed along with them. Sorry but if you are responding then you are arguing. We are stopping this

5. Do not load images or content which is not yours, or ask about copyright theft in the forum. We have a legal team for that. Please read the DMCA section under the Terms of Use

This does not include if you found your work elsewhere. We will try to help you with what to say and how to find the culprit if that happens.

6. Report Abuse. Click on a moderator's link and send them a message if you see abuse of these rules.

7. Do not spam about yourself or other sites. We do not need posts about your work. We can click through if we like what you are discussing. Only open threads that have a proper topic to discuss.

8. Do not discuss other competing sites. If you have a query about one, just go to their forums and ask there. We discuss all things FAA and Pixels, not other POD sites. This includes sending enquirers to other places to purchase what we sell here.

9. Do not create image threads please. We do have some but we do not need any more. The discussions are for discussions. Keep your images in your galleries.

10. FInally, no religion or politics in this discussion area. There are LOADS of sites on which you can discuss these topics, use one of those.

If you now use the forum, we take it that you have read our rules and are willing to comply with them. If you therefore break any, you will be removed from the discussions areas, which include all group discussions, and may even have your account here closed.

Moderators will remove posts, threads and members at their discretion. Cases will not be discussed in the open forum.

These rules are liable to change as needed. It is your responsibility to keep up to date, but we will bump them up when new ones are added or others amended.

Thank you

12. Due to numerous spam posts about products for sale on other sites, we have stopped allowing this. There are several posts already open promoting other stores on other sites, etc, so please find one of these in Search and add to that with your stores URL. If you wish to promote your other sites goods, please use your own bio area or website off FAA. If there is not a post about your stores site then do not open one.


This is not a rule but a request.

We do ask that people thank buyers in the comments of the image sold, where the buyer will see it, not on the forum, where they will not.

The forum is rarely visited by non members.


11. Religion and Politics threads DUE TO THE GOOD THREADS RAISED TO DATE AND THE LACK OF ABUSE. THIS RULE IS NOW RESCINDED. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.


11. Religion and Politics threads are banned forthwith. They cause too much negativity which spreads into other threads. Any religious or political threads will be closed.

This is non negotiable and any threads opened to discuss this will also be closed.




RULES UPDATED 6th June 2013 after talking with forum members.

These are now set


Please read

Note.. we will not discuss action taken with any other member than the one concerned.


Bump up


We have had several rules broken this week. I am therefore bumping this up so you can re-read and be aware of what we allow here and what we do not.

The rules apply to ALL community areas and not just the main forums.

Community & Technical Support Manager



We have changed rule 11 temporarily
