The forums are here for any and all registered users to post in. This is a website dedicated to Utada Hikaru but we do get visitors with other interests as well. There is no reason for people with different tastes not to come to these forums and join in with the conversations.

General rules:

#1 Avoid personal attacks. If you don't agree with what someone posted, debate the post... not the person that posted it.

#2 Keep the profanity to a minimum. Keep in mind that this website and it's forums are visited by people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Many of which do not appreciate vulgar language. So, the less there is, the better the forums are for everyone. Besides... a foul mouth doesn't make you look very impressive. Furthermore, the forum has a automated word censor in place. Any and all attempts to work around the censor will result in a punishment at our discretion ranging from a warning to a suspension of an account.

#3 Try your hardest to post in the appropriate forum. Don't be upset if we move your post to a more approriate forum. If we happen to move a post, don't publically throw a tantrum concerning it.
If you have any complaints, please express your concerns with the moderators through the Private Messaging system or through email, do not drag it out into the public. All complaints MUST be made privately and not publicly on the boards. If a complaint is made publicly, this will result in your complaint being deleted and disregarded.

#4 STAY ON TOPIC! When posting in a certain topic, please try to stay on the subject. If you're reading along in the forums and come up with something to say, but it's not related to the subject, please start a new topic.

#5 If you are sharing any media or information here, please include the source; we wouldn't want people taking credit for someone elses hard work.

#6 Do not start trouble. This is a fansite dedicated to Utada Hikaru, do not come here with the sole purpose of insulting her or her fans.

#7 Do not spam. Spam is any thread or post that can not lead to a mature discussion. For example, posting “Socks!” fifteen times in fifteen different threads is spam. Spam can also be repeated threads or questions that have been asked elsewhere on the same page. While the forum welcomes friendly debate, childish arguments and personal attacks are also considered spam.

Spam threads will be closed or deleted. Users who persist in spamming the forums will be removed without notice.

#8 Pornography or other offending material / content will not be allowed in any way, shape, or form.

#9 Please do not share illegal files. That means no sharing anything you can buy. If you like the artist, support them.

#10 Racism, Sexism, Homophobicism and other forms of intolerance, hate and bigotry will not be tolerated.

Signature rules:

We, the staff, here at UtadaNet.com love the imagination and creativity put behind some of the signatures at the bottom of some of the posts. However, some people don't realize that there are still some people out there on dialup modems. Huge signatures can dramatically increase the time it takes for some to load the pages:

#1 The total size of your signature, regardless of the number of pictures displayed, should not exceed 50 kilobytes. Signatures that stretch or deform the browser on a 800 x 600 pixel screen is not permitted.

#2 Keep the physical size of your signature to a decent size. Common banner-ad sizing (468x60 pixels) is a good example of an appropriate physical size.

#3 UtadaNet reserves the right to alter or remove any signature that violates these rules at its sole discretion.

Do your best to follow these rules and there will be little or no conflict.

UtadaNet reserves the right to move, modify, and delete posts as they see fit.
We also reserve the right to refuse access to any person for any reason at any time.

UtadaNet holds no responsibility for anything that is posted, and does not HAVE to remove anything.

Failure to follow the rules will most likely result in the immediate termination of your account and you will be banned from the site.

General rules:

#11 No posting to simply "Level up" or to increase your post count. Posts that are completely void of any content and are simply to increase posts will be deleted immediately. The user will be put on probation and/or may have their accounts deleted if further rules are broken.
