Default Please Read - General Board Etiquette / File Sharing / Selling / User Bannings

Dear JoviTalk users.

The Admin and Moderator team would like to make it as clear as possible that NO files are to be shared on JoviTalk. No officials. No bootlegs. None whatsoever. There will be NO exceptions to the rule.

For a number of years, JoviTalk has a hidden The File Sharing community. This forum has now been removed from JoviTalk a number of years back and yet since then, some users STILL decide upon themselves to post links to download songs, videos etc. This is why we feel the need to address this further.

I would just like to make everyone aware of the File Sharing Policy here at JoviTalk. Most users accept this rule, although some users feel they have the right to ignore it and push their luck. Since the removal of the File Sharing Forum, users are no longer authorised to post links to download official, live, bootleg or any other type of music or video file. This goes for mp3, wma, wmv, mpg, avi, flac etc.

The owner of Dry County and JoviTalk, Peter has expressed his wishes and has asked us to ensure that NO files are to be shared here. This measure has been brought in to keep this board alive. If users continue to share files, then he risks losing the board completely and that will ruin it for everybody else. Don't let that person be you.

We therefore kindly ask you to refrain from ANY FURTHER file sharing. We have been fairly lenient over the last few months with the release of Bon Jovi's tenth studio album 'Lost Highway', and now we are back in business to ensure that ALL REQUESTS AND DOWNLOAD LINKS are kept completely away from the message board.

Please think twice about posting any others, as they WILL be removed wthout warning.

There are other places on the Internet to download music or video files, JoviTalk is NOT of these sites. and under no circumstances should files be shared via this site. If you wish to discuss sharing music amongst users, then please use PM or email. The public forums are NOT the place to be discussing sharing files. You may wish to try Peer2Peer programs, or use Google as a place to seak files or websites containing official/bootleg material.

The only time when a user may post a link to music or video, is when this material is being STREAMED from the internet (Not available for download). Please use Google to find ways to rip/record this material if necessary.

I hope this is clear enough for everyone and please respect the wishes of Peter and the Mod-team.

Thank You for reading
