1) No full length copyrighted music. Using pictures, music samples, film samples (speech), film video clips (few seconds) should be assimilated to Fair use agreement and are accepted.
2) Releasing modified Future Pinball executable is not accepted.
3) The 3 years rule does not apply until real ROM (emulator) are not involved (which is the case for Future Pinball and should never be).
4) Tables still in production must not be released - we will post the list.
5) Of course if any copyright holders ask us to remove any material, we will do it ASAP without any question!
6) About modding, a simple question always suffice : "Can I?". Good judgment at any time is king. People have emotion and when they feel ripped, they might be angry. There is nothing to explain, It's common sense.

Regarding point 1) a simple workaround for this: put Creative Commons musics (jamendo for example) then explain users how they can put their own music in replacement.

On this forum, you are here to make friends and share a passion. That should be enough as a rule. Please respect that or play alone.

I want to add 2 more personal wishes (they are not rules, but will surely help to have a good mood on the site):
  • don't ask every day if there are any updates to a table and don't dig up old wips!
  • if you are not sure, ASK before doing anything

Hello to all the enthusiasts who frequent this site,

I am not an author of table but a fan of pinball and as such I appreciate more that strongly all the realizations of the talented authors which gathers this site.

Rules promulgated for continuation are in my humble opinion simple and very clear. I am in total agreement with these last ones. And I hope that everybody completely agrees with " you are here to make friends and share has passion ". Thanks a lot to the administrators and to the moderators for the main simple and clear rules.

Momoch

Thanks to the admin -- great rules.

To see if I am reading #3 correctly: the 3 yr rule does not apply if you are not using roms. Do I have that correct?

Thanks again guys!
