Fellowsfilm Rules and Regulations

Official Rules and Regulations

By being a registered member of the Fellowsfilm Network at fellowsfilm.co.uk, you agree to abide by the following rules and regulations. Please note that the Administration Team reserves the right to change these rules and regulations at any time without prior notice. All active registered forum users will be notified of any changes made to the rules and regulations as they are made.
  1. You must be aged 13 years or older and speak fluent English to register an account. Anybody found to be providing false details to avoid the age verification at registration will be permanently banned.
  2. Any decision made by a member of Forum Staff (Moderator or Administrator) is final and is not to be disputed. Please address any complaints against any staff member to the Administration Team using the Support Tickets system.
  3. The Moderation Team & Administration Team reserve the right to act from their own judgement, and act on something that isn’t explicitly included in the rules at their own discretion.
  4. Treat others as you wish to be treated. That is to say: be polite and don’t be generally rude. Before you post, read what you're written and ask: "Is this stupid? Is this going to make someone angry or insulted? Does this add anything to the conversation?".
  5. Do not bump threads, or make any unnecessarily off-topic posts in threads.
  6. Do not ‘backseat moderate’ (act as a moderator) and start policing the forums yourselves. If a post explicitly violates a rule or regulation (or several), report it. Otherwise, let a moderator find the post themselves and they’ll deal with it as deemed appropriate.
  7. Understanding is important. Ensure that any posts you make are clear to understand, and have proper spelling and grammar. Do not be offended by any spelling corrections another forum user may make, or any requests for you to elaborate on your point.
  8. Each person may register only a single account. Each member of a development team or VBC admin group should register their own account if they do not already have one. If you wish to change your forum display name (username), please PM an Administrator with the name you’d like it changed to. If there is more than one person using the same IP address, please alert the Administration Team before registering a second account.
  9. Political/religious discussions are prohibited.
  10. Illegal/inappropriate content is strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: pirated content, pornography, discussion of illegal activities, offensive material and excessive swearing.
  11. Spam/advertising/malware is strictly prohibited. Any spam accounts will be immediately put through a ‘spam cleaner’, with all of their content being filtered and all accounts associated to their IP address being banned.
  12. Signatures are not permitted to be taller than 128 px (6 lines of default-sized text), contain more than 1 image, contain images wider than 800 px, or be overly intrusive (e.g. including garish colours or distracting animated content). All content rules also apply to signatures.

Additional Policies

Forum Specific Rules/Guidelines

In addition to these global site rules, some forum sections have additional rules that you must follow when posting. These rules will always be listed in a pinned thread within the section, so keep an eye out for those.

Download Centre File Approvals

The Downloads Section also has a file approval system in place, meaning that all new files uploaded are manually reviewed by a member of the Moderation Team before they are viewable by the public. This process can take time, and we receive an average of 20 new files every week, so please be patient. You will be notified via. PM if your file is rejected for any reason.

Thread Moderators

At a thread OP (opener)’s discretion, thread moderators can be assigned to threads, granting access to basic moderator actions within the thread. Abuse of these powers will result in an immediate warning point being issued. Thread OPs can request for a specified list of forum users to be set as thread moderators for a thread using the Support Tickets system.


By default, each forum user is set to receive basic notifications via. email from the forums, for example when a new PM is received. You can control when and how you receive notifications in your Account Settings.

User Privacy

We take user’s privacy very seriously, and security is a top priority. You can find our Privacy Policy by clicking here, and can manage your own personal privacy settings in your Account Settings.

Further Assistance

If you have any further questions regarding the Terms of Service, Rules and Regulations or Policies, don't hesitate to get in touch with the Administration Team via. the support ticket system.
