I. INTRODUCTION

Well, it was about time for me to get philosophical and theoretical... rules.gif ... to give you the rules, the ONLY set of rules that in my opinion will serve for ages... maybe one or two updates as we progress, but basically, this is it... First of all, these rules are made to be followed and respected, and as such can not be questionable... If this isn't so, the whole concept of not only the Rule Book, but the entire group can fall apart... As I've said many many times before, the rules are fair, but strict... no questions about it... AND, the most important thing, the rules are to be followed from this day onwards... There are some rules that make it easier for the current members (those rules will have a * symbol next to the title, so be on the watch for them).

So, let's begin...


II. THE RULES

Membership Of Masters Of Sound*

You can either ask for the membership, in the topic Join M.o.S, or you can be asked to join us... either way, ONLY M.o.S. council can give the final approval of the membership. Any member of MoS can (and is highly encouraged to do so) suggest a member that could be accepted into MoS.

As a member, you're free to do whatever you came to do here at the M9 Forum, but you'll have to follow some rules that will make it easier to interact between us, and not to collide work and fun.

Keep in mind that the membership isn't permanent... you can lose the membership as easily as gain it... And I do hope I won't never have to see that happen... Thus, these rules should prevent that from happening...


Leadership of MoS

Leadership of MoS is organized as a council. Council contains 3 members (Antonis1978. Derber & Tehnokid1974 ). Majority decides on all matters. MoS council is here only to make things better, and to serve up as a guide. Council members are obligated with this rulebook, like any other member. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask any of us.

Groups*

The groups ARE NOT a ranking system, only a way to segment the work that is to be done, and to make things more interesting. Group Leaders are only symbolically, and their ONLY purpose is to ask questions and solve problems their Group Members can't solve by themselves... Explanation: This Rule Book should hold even if we reach 50 members... And to lift a load from me, and make more members involved in running this group...

MoS Home Topic

Intended to be our home, a base, or call it what ever you feel like... We hang around and chat, and chat, and chat... For the serious talks and projects there will be specific topics, and there is a PM system that works just fine.

MoS Signature

Making developing our signatures are in hands of our Alchemists. If you want to create your own signature, fine by us, BUT, only one condition -> You have to use the miniDJ in it. If you'll create your own sig, contact one of the counsilors via PM so he can send you the image
of the DJ.

Conflicts among members

I will not tolerate such behaviour. PERIOD. Why? Because, if this is a way to escape reality even for a bit, why spoil that... we have enough problems in real world as it is now, we should avoid bringing such problems in here... And I intend to do my best to make the Group a place where we'll comfort each other, give and provide support, and whatever is necessary for our members to feel better, and not only on the forum.

Activity


All our members come from different countries, have different backgrounds,
different real life obligations and activities, and this is why we don't want any restrictions or sign-in topics to show who is active, and who is not.
IMPORTANT: You're a member of MoS unless:
  • YOU cancel the membership. In this way you should tell us publicly, in MoS Home, about it,
    why you resign, and say goodbye and
  • WE dismiss you from the group, because of some major breaking of rules... You will get
    warnings from us before we resort to the last measure of defense - throwing
    you OUT of MoS for ever...
  • Of course we all hope this thing would never happen.

MoS Activity

If you know 1% about ringtones, but have a will to learn, you're made for our Group... While in our group, you can do whatever you want (themes, wallpapers, ...) ... as long as you continue to work on ringtones (making them, remixing them, finding them, uploading them, discussing them etc.) ...

Join MoS

IN order to join MoS you will require to have following: At least 75 posts that count and uploaded 20 ringtones to M9, if you have all that you are almost automatically accepted in our group.
Also, from now on ( Feb 2012) you can simply join MoS by winning 5 MoS challenges. If you go that way, having 75 posts and 20 ringtones uploaded won't be necessary!


Group Mission*

When I started working on this idea 2 years ago, my main goal was to organize the ringtoners of MoS to provide better help for the ever growing M9 Community... This group DOES NOT make any obligations, you're free to decide if you want to follow us or not, but if you're a part of our group, at least a small effort to follow the ways of MoS is needed.

This is not some kind of strict military operation, just an organized hang-out for the people that have similar interests (generally, music and ringtones) and enjoy being together as a group...

III. CONCLUSION

Well, of course not all things are defined (don't want to make it too strict), but this should have a role of a pointer, in which way we should act as a group...

The rules aren't that strict, and basically, I have a very high level of tolerance (especially for the new members... even for those that are members for a while as well)...

IV. THANKS

Don't want to name anyone special, because to me you're all special... You made this group a better place, better than I ever imagined possible... You all deserved my respect, and you'll always have my respect... You made this group into a place that I can't wait to visit... When life isn't going as planned, I know I have a resort here, where I can relax, and loosen up, among members I love and like, and where I can enjoy spending hours and hours without any pressure or thinking that I have an obligation to someone on the forum... I hope all members of MoS are here because of the same motive, and not just for the downloads... wink.gif ...

Keep in mind, you and council are equal, Council leads, but this is more-less a formality... As we were elected we were given this title and position along with all the obligations and benefits...




I highly encourage you to discuss this Rule Book as much as you want and can... Two heads know more than one, I always say... mf_type.gif ...



Well, there you have it, rules of conduct, self-explanatory, and I think now we can focus on new projects and new members...

That is all...simply work of art!! notworthy.gif
McKing
it seems great smile.gif not many restrictions, not a harsh rules-book, not at all wink.gif now it really shows Vanja's high tolerance, always! laugh.gif
VanjaT630
@ sven - Will do... I was reading it as well to see where I've missed a letter or two... laugh.gif

@ McKing - Thanks for the support... thumbsup.gif ... notworthy.gif
antonis1978
its great vanja! clapping.gif

Just an underline....

I think at MOS properties must specify a number of ringtones!

Example: 25 (as used to be) uploaded ringtones for the future members.


All the others are 10.gif cheers.gif notworthy.gif
VanjaT630
@ antonis - I'm aware of that... and was thinking about it... but, suppose this.... a member has Rank 3, or above... Was doing themes/wallpapers/other uploads... He's fed up with that, and wants to learn how to make ringtones, like we do... What am I supposed to do? The best way to learn is to join us, and we'll provide all the help he/she needs... That's what I was always pointing out... We should teach others... Not be a high society reserved only for the best of the best... But, then again, some current members might be offended by this idea...

Very delicate question, indeed...
antonis1978
Yes u are right the way u are thinking of this smile.gif But i was thinking if we can have a little sample of their work thumbsup.gif
Of course and we can teach them everything!
Thats why we are here cheers.gif
VanjaT630
Well, how about we start sth like MoS Boot Camp... Where members would be given the tools, and examples... givent the teachers (techno, you, silver, ...etc.)... And given the deadline for those 25 uploaded ringtone sto the gallery... After that, they're in... Let's say this is one way of accepting rookies... wink.gif

I thnik this would be great... it would give some of our members important roles as teachers... I think technokid would enjoy this... smile.gif
antonis1978
wow.gif


I'm in thumbsup.gif wink.gif

And we are waiting for more details cheers.gif
ssivic
Yes, nice idea...! thumbsup.gif

Updated
ahodarkar
the original rank system seems to have been scrapped
our requirements still state a necessity of being rank 3...shud that not be changed...like maybe a minimum of 100 contribution points
or nothing at all
just 50 ringtones and 100 uploads unsure.gif

i wasnt sure about wher to post this
ssivic
well thanks for pointing this out. We will have to make update of rules. So all ideas are welcome smile.gif
boxieblue
@Doc: 50 ringtones? i dont have that many yet unsure.gif
ahodarkar
umm...boxie that already was t rule for ages...even b4 u joined mos...gues t council made an exception for u smile.gif

50 tones was mainly to see if a person is intent on toning at all

but i guess t council knew u so well that they did not feel doubtful about ur intent

unlike hb, the council only decides wen ther is a dubious choice to be made...like urs
otherwise m9ers who possess all t necessary attributes quite automatically become mos members...on application or on invitation offcours smile.gif
vegeta_sa
How about they must take part in a certain amount of Rincone chalenges?
and they must be recomended by a MOS member that way if some one wants to join one or mor of us current member can go through their uploads and have a chat with them via PM or home site to see if they are the type of peeps we looking for.
ssivic
Well my theory is the harder it is to get into mos, the more loyal ppl we will get. Since they all done so lot to join us, they will want to stay. Those who will come easy, they will easily go....

But also it is good to have Antonis & Tehno so I don't make the requirements to high tongue.gif

We have to think about right solution for this. All ideas are good, and somehow will probably be in the new requirements for joining. My "vision" is that those requirements include all things a real ringtoner must try/know. Upload ringtones, maybe make good critic about others tunes, and at least once join the regular RC.

50 tone uploads

sounds good i would like 50 posts more. but once join and they dont follow the rulz they can be deleted out of group.
4 example joined MOS and are not active in anything busted_cop.gif
and this rule should be 4 the current MOS members as well busted_cop.gif tongue.gif
vegeta_sa
I say :
50 Tone uploads
200 post
3 RC participation
+2 Council members must aprove
I agree with Sven make it tough, we may have the most members but i prefer having the most active members

technokid1974
200 posts are not needed. even if some did get 200 posts that dose not guarantee they will be active as we have seen in the past.
its better if we have a rule like new members are not active for 2 months without any reason they will be removed from MOS
also 4 old members 3 to 4 months not active without any reason will be removed.
antonis1978
I made few changes cause of thumpys come. I want u to read all the rulebook and to say any ideas to discuss if you have thumbsup.gif
thump_rockstar
Everything seems cool, only i think that the amount of RC participations required for a newbie to join us should be raised from 2 to 5 so that the person gets a bit more active and familiar with forum and ringtoning before joining this elite group unsure.gif

After thumpy's suggestion and after of the majority of the MOS members, the participations of RC are increased from 2 to 5 (as far as joiness to
the group).
