Behavior Rules & Guidelines
sadOsam should be a place for every kinkster to enjoy, and as such, it is necessary to apply some rules. Please follow them.
1. Do not post “offensive” or illegal content in posts, links or images
Any material which constitutes bestiality, child abuse, non-consensual defamation, harassment, or abuse or any illegal activities is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.
2. Remain respectful of other members at all times
All posts should be respectful of others and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.
However, you are not free to troll, attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community, except if they explicitly gave consent and wish for it. It does not matter what title or power you think you have or hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.
3. Respect access limits
Users must respect the security of the Community and may not attempt to gain access or provide access to areas private to sadOsam or the Community.
General Posting Guidelines
1. Please use SEARCH first!
Please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject you are looking for before posting a new thread. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button.
2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use non-topic related titles
PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :
Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question, I have a problem…
These are things you want, not what others can help you with. What do you need help with? What is your urgent matter? What question do you have? What is the problem you have? Make the tile the answers to those questions.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question:
“Where do I find a good Paddle? ”
“Urgent: How do I fix a latex rip?”
Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor.
Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as
“if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.
3. Do not cross post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.
4. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help, unless you know them and know they’re ok with it. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
Rule breaking & Consequences
Am I allowed more than one account?
In general no, because why do you need more than one?
If the reason is that you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums.
What happens if I break a rule?
If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.
We try not to ban, and if you are, it’s for a good reason. There will be no haggling.
What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?
Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin, or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
