POP FORUM RULES: Opening Threads & MP3 Links

Moderator: Spartan

 

Postby JimJim » Sun Jul 31, 2011 12:50 pm

The Pure Pop moderation team have decided upon a set of rules regarding opening new threads in Pure Pop due to the increasing number of these type of events... "x says XX is their new single", oh wait, "y says YY is their new single", but! "z says ZZ is their new single in Uganda!!!".

A new single or album thread should not be opened in Pure Pop unless it has been confirmed by one of the following media outlets...

UKMIX OFFICIAL REPUTABLE SOURCE LIST
    USA-BASED SOURCES
    - All Access Future Release Schedule (NOT 'Cool New Music')
    - Z100, KISS FM or other high profile US radio stations
    - MTV
    - BET

    UK-BASED SOURCES
    - BBC Radio 1
    - BBC Radio 2
    - Chart Analysis Release Schedule Thread

    AUS-BASED SOURCES
    - AuspOp
    - Channel [V]

    INTERNATIONAL SOURCES
    - The artist's official facebook/twitter page
    - The artist's official website
    - The artist's record company (directly, not via another source)
GENERAL DISCUSSION RULES

All previous rules identified since 2005 are still in place:
    1) Do not start a new topic claiming song x to be the new single/album from artist y unless you can back it up with a credible source (preferably with a link).

    If you still wish to post something that speculates on a future release, please use the General Artist Thread or dedicated album thread for the given artist.

    2) Do not post or request download links to music files, particularly those hosted by the likes of rapidshare, yousendit, youshareit etc. UKMix is not an mp3 trading board, and association with the aforementioned services can result in the website being shut down.

    Links to snippets, or direct streams hosted by legitimate sites (e.g. YouTube, SoundCloud) where the link is unlikely to be broken are fine.

    Any posts contravening the above will be edited, deleted or moved to Wasteland. Action will also be taken against repeat offenders.

    3) Avoid placing extraneous information within topic titles. Titles may be stylised however the OP sees fit, but moderators will remove any unnecessary information from a topic title. Exceptions include having 'album' or 'single' for releases that involve a title track (e.g. defining 'Born This Way' the album from 'Born This Way' the single).
Thank you for your cooperation!

The OP has been updated slightly to reflect modern times, no major changes.

Can we please open the "Britney Spears - Private Show" topic again?

I think that I do remember that topics for buzz singles, or promotional singles are allowed. "Private Show" is clearly released for promotional purposes. It is used for her advertisement for her new perfume; therefore, it had been sent to TV channels and other media (like Internet, etc.) to promote her brand, her upcoming album. She even filmed a (music) video for it, gave interviews to ET about the song, its vibe and how it gets released via the commerical.

A promotional single is still a promotional one even though it hadn't been released to iTunes (yet).

Thank you in advance.
