    RULES FOR POSTING TO THE VDRUMS.COM FORUM


    1. Posting & Civility

    Politeness is rule one here. We expect spirited debates, as long as members extend respect to others. Personal attacks against other members is prohibited and will result in instant banning without warning.

    Attacks against vendors, manufacturers, or representatives is prohibited. If you wish to air your grievances against a vendor or manufacturer, contact them directly. This does not include honest and respectful criticism of products or services.

    Attacks against moderators is prohibited. If you have a problem with an administrator or moderator, respectfully private message them to work the problem out. Public attacks will result in instant banning without warning.

    Our forum focuses primarily on e-drumming. Please stay within this topic when creating and participating in existing conversations. We do have additional sub-forums for related and unrelated topics. Be sure to check them out.

    Political and or religious discussion is prohibited and will result in instant banning without warning.

    Our forum has several sub-forums. Before you post, please make sure you are posting in the correct forum so members can better answer your questions. We do not move topics based on laziness. Any topic posted in the wrong forum will be deleted without warning.

    Please be sure to read our Posting Guidelines to ensure your topic is not deleted. Was your topic deleted?

    Attempting to sell or buy an item outside the classified section will result in instant banning without warning. Use the classified section to sell or buy items from other members.

    Please refrain from creating duplicate threads/posts. Duplicate threads/posts will be deleted without warning and can lead to banning without warning in excessive cases.

    This website is read by people of all ages; including children wanting to learn about drumming. Please be respectful of all age groups and refrain from cursing. This includes usernames, avatars, signatures, and all other content.

    2. Signatures

    Please restrict signature content to personal gear and links.

    Banners are prohibited. Please limit your signatures to text only.

    3. Copyright & Privacy

    Do not post or share links to copyrighted material or products. Posting such materials will result in instant banning without warning.

    Do not post private email or messages without the permission of the sender. Posting such messages will result in instant banning without warning.

    4. Spam

    This community does not condone posting of unrelated material. Posting such materials will result in an instant banning without warning.

    5. Vendors & Advertising

    This community is proudly sponsored by Kraft Music. We allow vendors to post and participate in a support-based fashion only. We do not allow vendors to post merely to redirect traffic to their websites or storefronts. Violators will be permanently banned without warning.

    We have several Roland Corporation staff members contributing on this forum. We ask that forum members please not direct technical questions or service issues to Roland Representatives, as they are not an official channel for Roland technical or customer service. They offer their time and knowledge here voluntarily and we should respect their participation - not take advantage of their presence.

    6. Chronic Offenders

    Moderators reserve the right to take action against disruptive and chronic offenders. Moderators may attempt to correct the problem via editing and or direct warning. Moderators may take further action if necessary. Being placed into moderation or being banned may be temporary or permanent.

    7. Reporting Posts

    If you feel a topic/post breaks one of these rules, please report it via the "flag" button at the bottom right of the topic/post. Reported posts are reviewed by moderators and are handled accordingly.

    8. Violations

    For most violations, the first offense will result in an "infraction warning" via private message or in the topic. In the case of repeat violations, the moderators may issue a temporary ban warning (7-30 days). Ultimately, multiple warnings can, and likely will, result in permanent banning without further warning.

    9. Moderator Actions

    Upon violation, moderators will take action. This may include: the deletion of words or phrases, removal of an entire post, closing of a thread that leads to off-topic continuance or gets heated, warning a member, placing a member into moderation, and or banning of a member.

    10. Revisions

    Rules are subject to change based on the needs of the forum. We try to announce and highlight all changes; but members should periodically review the rules.


    Thank you for reading our rules and please enjoy your time at our forum.

    December 2020 Maintenance Restructure:

    To alleviate some backend time-consuming maintenance, I have removed the approval for new member posts and classified restrictions. The rules above have been updated to reflect these changes.

    We will try a little more "freedom" for a while. If it does not go well, these changes will be reimplemented. Unfortunately, this will mean some spam will get through.



    If you witness spam or rule abuse, please use the "flag" button at the bottom right of the post or topic to report it.

    Spammers and rule breakers will be subject to post moderation or immediate banning. (temporary or permanent) Please read the rules and be aware of your actions.



    Thank you!
