    Welcome to the General TV & Media forums! In here you can post about other TV shows, movies and music unrealated to CSI.

    We would appreciate it if you'd read this before posting in these forums. I'll try to make it as short as possible, but it'll help you when it comes to posting in here.

    Your mods in here are SunsetBoulevard and Destiny. Please feel free to ask us any questions via PM (Personal Message).


    Board Rules - Everything you need to know when it comes to posting on the board, it's also very useful to refer back to from time to time.

    FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions.

    Search - To search for threads that may have already been created in the forum.

    Questions, Suggestions & Feedback - A separate forum where you can (as the title suggests) ask questions, make suggestions and leave feedback.

    Welcome To vBulletin - Helpful information about our new home.


    If you wish to create a new thread, please ensure that an existing thread for the topic does not already exist. You can do this by using the search function (a link is also provided above), which is located at the top of the board above your username.


    To have an avatar (the image located underneath your username) you must have 100 posts. If you have over 100 posts, to add an avatar go to User CP, scroll down to Edit Avatar, select the Use Custom Avatar option and upload an avatar from your PC.

    Avatar Sizes – The maximum size for an avatar is 140 x 140 pixels, like so:


    JPEG & PNG images have a maximum size of 20k (20,480 bytes), and GIF images 70k, any avatars that exceed these sizes will be automatically removed and you will receive a PM notification.


    You can set a signature banner in the User CP menu at the top of the page. Select the Edit Signature submenu. The image size of a signature banner will be no larger than 70k if you wish to upload it from your PC. If you wish to enter the URL to the banner, there is no limit.

    You can either have a banner or text in you signature and not both. Banners have a maximum size of 75 pixels in height and 220 pixels in length. This is an example of the maximum size a banner can be:


    Please make sure your banner is no larger than that.


    In order to post an image you must have 50 posts, if you wish to post a image and do not 100 posts, then you can post a link to your image, as you do not need 50 posts to use this facility.

    Please note that pictures can not carry Adult Content, Swearing, Baiting, Trolling or Flaming in them.

    Images Sizes – The maximum size for images is 400 x 400 pixels, any images that exceed that size will be amended into a link by one the moderators. You may also post up to 3 images per post.


    Please do not hotlink images. Please ensure that you upload your image on to a host, any hotlinked images will be removed by one of the moderators.


    Please ensure you keep any spoilers of upcoming episodes (that have not aired in the US) in the spoiler code, this is also the case for threads with spoilers warnings in the title, however with these particular threads you may discuss that evenings episodes without the need of spoiler codes. There are posters who may not wish to know what is going to happen in the show and it’s only fair that they should have the option to know what will happen.

    If you want to add a spoiler please use the spoiler tags (to learn to use the tag use the UBB box on reg. reply), to read an Invisible Spoiler (ie Tag) click on the white spoiler box and the spoiler (ie Text) will appear.

    Please do NOT reveal information about the spoiler in the title of the box. You can read it without clicking on the box, so spoiler free people could still be spoilt. A good idea for the title would be the episode you're talking about. For example:

    OMG! I can't believe they kiss! ...Now all the spoiler free people have no idea of what's going on and that's how they like it. ;)
    You just spoilt all the spoiler free people by putting that in the title.
    Also, please do NOT reveal the sources where you get your spoilers from. We do have the reason for that. Do not give us a link if you would like to share a spoiler, hide the entire article under a spoiler tag instead.


    You can discuss downloading, as long as you state very clearly in your post what legal source you are discussing (for example: iTunes). If your post does not clearly state this it will be assumed that it is not legal.


    Please remember that this site is a discussion board and not a place for real time chat, if you wish to have a real time chat then we suggested you find other means (i.e. MSN messenger).


    You can edit posts up to 24 hours, so if you wish to add to your original post you can do so within this time without having to double post. Please note that double posting continually can be considered as spamming, especially if there is no real content to the posts.

    SunsetBoulevard and I would like to thank you for reading this. It makes your time here, and ours more enjoyable. Happy posting!
