Postby pciccone » Wed Mar 02, 2016 12:15 pm

Pret-a-3D Forums and Image Gallery Terms of Service (TOS)

By participating in Pret-a-3D forums or Galleries, you agree to abide by the following rules and restrictions:
By accepting membership to these forums, you affirm and agree that you have read this document and will review it from time to time as Pret-a-3D 3D reserves the right to make changes to these guidelines as is deemed necessary, and that you will adhere to all codes and terms listed within this TOS in all sub forums, and in Private Messages sent using the forum.

Goals

Please determine if your posts will add to the goals for these forums:
  • The Pret-a-3D 3D forums and galleries should be a destination for learning, conversation, and helping others
  • The forums should promote learning and sharing
  • The forums should help in communicating and discussing ideas in a positive way

Objectives

These forums and galleries exists in order to help facilitate the discussion, learning, teaching, creation of, as well as, displaying of digital art and animation. This is accomplished by fostering a community where each member helps another to learn various techniques for 3d modeling, texturing, posing, animating, and postwork. Everything that helps the community realize these objectives is welcome. Constructive discussion, both critical and sympathetic, pertaining to these objectives is encouraged. Anything that is degrading or otherwise harmful to such an environment is strictly prohibited.
Here are a few examples of how these objectives may be accomplished:

  • Discussing Art and Animation
  • Giving and receiving support for questions related to products and their use
  • Exchanging Tips and Techniques
  • Announcements of product fixes and updates
  • Tutorials
  • Product Suggestions
  • Announcements by Pret-a-3D Staff

General Code of Conduct

  • Posts, threads, and images MUST NOT contain ANY nudity, violence, or profanity.
  • Criticism should be directed towards the subject or topic at hand, rather than an individual.  Posts which make blanket, unreasoned criticisms - of other members, of Pret-a-3D 3D, of products or applications, or of merchants and their products - may be removed in a general effort to control negativity.
  • Posts that are obviously designed to provoke, shock or anger will be removed and action taken as needed.  This includes posts attempting to provoke a “site” or “app” war, the excessive use of strong language, or any content designed to create a negative emotional response.
  • Attacks towards any member, moderator, admin, or Pret-a-3D Staff will not be tolerated.
  • Anyone asking for “warez” or otherwise pirated or stolen material will be dealt with as deemed necessary including any appropriate legal action where necessary. Often a single warning will be given to the individual, though some situations may warrant more severe action to be taken.
  • Anyone offering “warez” or otherwise pirated or stolen material will be banned and all appropriate legal action taken.
  • Copyright infringements of any sort will not be tolerated.
  • Illegal acts, accusations of illegal acts, or suggestions to commit an illegal act are not allowed on our forums and will be removed from public view, further action will be taken if necessary.
  • Multiple forum posts, cross-posting, of a topic will be consolidated to a single post or the duplicate post may be locked or removed in order to reduce entries in the forum.
  • Off-topic threads may be moved, modified or split at the discretion of the moderators and any such changes will be reported to the member who started the thread.
  • There may also be other reasons to refocus multiple threads to a single thread. In some instances, these multiple threads may even be created by two different members. It is not our intention to stifle conversation, this is done so that all members are able to follow the same thread and ask and receive feedback in the same location on this subject.
  • Emails or Private Messages (PM’s) can be posted ONLY by the original author, or by the recipient if the post explicitly states that it may be made public. This also includes communication from all Pret-a-3D 3D contacts as well as correspondence with outside agencies.
  • Posts that appear to lead to debate on personal beliefs such as politics or religion will not be allowed.

We reserve the right to remove any post we feel is in violation of these rules as well as any post we feel is not of specific interest to our core membership.

Gallery and Posted Image Conduct

The gallery is reserved to showcase images that have been made with Reality. Here are some important guidelines that you should learn before posting an image in the gallery.

  • Images may not show genitals, or the bare groin or buttocks, of humanoid figures. Images of female humanoids may not show the breasts.
  • Any image that conflicts with the nature of this forum or is found to be inappropriate for the forum’s wide audience will be removed and the author notified.
  • Images will not display any sexual act.
  • Images that may be considered sexually suggestive will be reviewed by the staff of this site as to its appropriateness for inclusion in the Gallery.
  • Pret-a-3D 3D retains the rights to remove any image(s) for any reason.
  • Images will not display rape, torture, or the act of physical mutilation.
  • Images that may appear gratuitously violent will be reviewed by the staff of this site for its appropriateness for inclusion in the gallery.
  • Images that contain depictions of children are especially sensitive and will be reviewed even more strictly than other such images.
  • Images that may be considered as an attack on a person or their beliefs will be reviewed for its appropriateness in the gallery.
  • This gallery is intended for works of art only and not for advertising purposes. Any image that can be construed as a “product shot” may be removed at the discretion of the staff. However, a listing of the products used in an image is acceptable and encouraged.

Posting/Receiving Downloads
By using our site to download files from, you agree and affirm that you do so at your own risk, and that you indemnify Pret-a-3D against any liability whatsoever. While we will review links, sample submissions, and occasionally test downloads, we ask, for your own safety, that you take precautions.
Anyone that participates in the following actions will be dealt with legally and all appropriate measures taken:

  • Anyone caught posting a link to any file containing a virus, Trojan, or other harmful payload.
  • Anyone caught posting a link that leads a member to pornography (i.e.: ‘porn spam’), or any other sort of questionable material, whether a download or website.
  • Anyone attempting to “hack” or otherwise disrupt the normal functioning of this forum.
  • Non-working links (i.e.: “dead links”) will be removed when found, or by request. We will wait up to 72 hours before deletion to account for periodic outages and server down-times.
  • We ask that your creation not infringe upon the copyrights of others. Infringements will be removed and the offense remedied as circumstances warrant. This includes, but is not limited to; characters, textures, or meshes and/or items that contain any 3 rd party data that is trademarked, patented, or copyrighted to other corporations. Items that are “similar to” or “looks like” will be judged on a case-by-case basis. All copyright-related complaints will be considered, although the complainant must provide proof of infringement before consideration is made. This proof should follow the guidelines specified in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Here is an outline of the chain of events that we will follow towards making corrections within the forum:

  • An official warning is given to all parties involved. These warnings will be logged, but they will be kept away from public view.
  • If the official warning is ignored, or the problem recurs from the same member, then the member will have all forum privileges suspended (for an undetermined period of time).
  • Anyone violating the Forum Guidelines after reinstatement from suspension will be banned outright, including all known “clone” accounts of the person being banned.
  • Further legal action will be taken as deemed necessary by Pret-a-3D.
