Posting Rules

Be Respectful
Do not insult or bully other users. Do not flamebait* or make any comments that are prejudiced, racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. in nature. Do not post other members' private information.
Warning: 1 to 4 points

Be Cooperative
All posts should remain on topic without trying to derail or discredit the thread. Do not post “spam” messages. This includes flooding, multiple off topic posts, numerous duplicate posts, etc. Please do not post in old threads that are no longer relevant. When creating new threads, be sure to place them in the proper section. Thread titles should be descriptive, not misleading or confusing.
Warning: 1 to 2 points

Be Decent
Our site has members of all ages. Please do not post content that may be inappropriate for younger fans. Nudity and graphic images are not allowed anywhere on the forums. Artistic and scientific nudity are permitted within a [nsfw] tag. Our users often visit this site from school or work, so sexually suggestive or disturbing images must also be hidden with [nsfw] tags.
Warning: 2 to 4 points

Do not stretch the page with white space or repeated images. Do not make empty posts that only contain a quote from another post. Animations in your signature or avatar are not allowed.

Use the forum for its intended purpose

Warning: 2 to 3 points

Gaga Daily reserves the right to ban any user. Those who violate the rules or generally disrupt the community may be banned without notification.

*Flamebait
Generally, a “Flamebait” post is an unnecessary offensive comment about an artist, fanbase, or group of people. Flamebait posts are not allowed because they are likely to start a fight. Do not make offensive comments bashing an artist that have no point other than to insult. If you wish to make a harsh comment, it must have a “point” or validation to back it up. Do not disrespect artists in threads dedicated to them. Do not go into a thread dedicated to Cher to talk about how much you don't like Cher. Do not go into a vegetarian thread to discuss how much you love meat. Lady Gaga does not have a dedicated thread here, but the entire site is dedicated to her, so you can't be a member here just to talk about how much you don't like Lady Gaga. Do not insult fans of any artist.

Fine Print

Gaga Daily does not moderate links to outside sources. When a member clicks on a link posted in any area of the forum they are doing so at their own discretion. We will, however, remove links deemed inappropriate to the best of our abilities.

Members acknowledge there is nudity on this forum and Gaga Daily does not take responsibility for the activities of minors on the Internet and can not guarantee there is no 18+ content on this forum. Members view the forum at their own discretion. We will, however, attempt to remove inappropriate content to the best of our abilities.
The moderators have the authority to take any corrective actions necessary to protect the site and its members. A user may be banned for disrupting our community even if they creatively find a way to do it that doesn't break a letter of a rule. These cases will be reviewed by the moderation staff, and if the corrective action taken was deemed in the best interest of the community, that decision will stand.

We will also take each violation of the rule in its own situation. If the violation is clearly not on purpose, not harmful, not negative or disrespectful, we obviously will not warn you. Just keep in mind there is a fine line between a harmful post and a joking post. Just make your intent very clear. In simplistic terms, we have no tolerance for disrespect, but tolerance for mistakes. Arguing against a warning saying it was a joke or mistake after the fact will not work to get your warning reversed. A warning is exactly what its called – just a warning. Take the warning and be very clear with your postings in the future.

It is impossible to punish all rule breaking as soon as it happens. The Gaga Daily staff is composed of humans who are not always online to give infractions, close or move topics, etc. right away. There is no time frame as to when you can receive an infraction; they will be given to any post that we find breaking the rules listed above. When a moderator of the section where the rule breaking occurred is online, they will take action with appropriate measures.
