Welcome to the Goonsquad!

Now we know all of this wonderful content looks amazing and you want to dive right into it and download everything you can get your hands on.

DON'T!!

Downloading without sharing is a fast way to get suspended/banned from this site.

So! Lets go over the rules of this site to prevent any banning!
===========

1. Sharing items

This is a resource site, we provide a number of resources for Second life and many other forms of media. We believe that in order to create you have to have the right tools. Of course nothing in this world is free and although the items here are free to download hosting them all is not free.
So to keep this website up and content flowing we ask that all members share items.
The items can be but are not limited to:
Skins
Wearables( Legacy clothing such as Shirts,Pants, Underwear, Ect.)
Mesh
Hair
Textures
Programs
Scripts
Music
Books/Audiobooks
Tutorials
--------------------
Now for whatever reason you can't share or don't want to share please consider becoming a VIP member. Vip members are not required to share since they are supporting us financially.

With that said Non-VIP members will need to share items
1 Share per 1 download
Members who exceed the download ratio will punished
1st with a Warning
2nd with a suspension
3rd a Ban
The length of the suspension will depend on the Admin so you could be suspended for 1 hour or 1 year. So make sure you share ^_^.

1A- It is worth mentioning that all items are protected by a seal that goes away when you reply to the thread.When you reply the seal/restriction is broken and the download link will be revealed. This is counted as a download by our system.
If you want to say thank you to the uploader or ask a question please use the PM the uploader, otherwise your post will be counted as a download and your download count will go up.
The exception to the post count rule is the free monthly gift, tutorials and viewer sections.


2.Giving reputation points
( Please press the REP+ button and not the REPORT button)

It is very important to give reputation points on post that you like or find informative. This is a ranking system that lets us know what user can be trusted and the quality of their content. Users gain and lose reputation based on how their posts are scored by other forum participants. Users with the ability to affect reputation, will either give or take always points by approving or disapproving with a post's content.

On a side note once your Rep hits +10 you will rank up to Goonsquad/Trusted Good and your user name will change to Red.

But if your Rep hits -10 You'll be instantly banned and that's that, GAME OVER.
If you don't see the REP+ button on the post, go to the uploader's profile and add rep using the status tab.

3. Keep it Relevant and Appropriate

For everyone's benefit please stay on the dedicated topic. These Community Forums are provided to encourage knowledge-sharing of Virtual Worlds products and services with others.

Please refrain from discussing matters unrelated to the resolution.
Other inappropriate or unacceptable behavior includes:
a) discussing how to violate any policy or agreement entered into with GoonSquad for any product or service,
b) posting content which is created solely to “bump” an existing topic or to evade the word filter or site logic;
c) double-posting or cross-posting;
d) discussing participant bans or other Moderator actions. The Community Forum is not a venue for discussion of legal matters. Therefore, no such discussions are permitted.
We reserve the right to delete inappropriate material.


4. Keep it Courteous

Do your part to ensure everyone has a positive experience when participating on the Community Forums. Always be mindful of your posts and activity when participating. Specifically, please refrain from posting anything unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable or injurious to third parties. Your opinions are always welcome. However, neither personal attacks nor harassment are acceptable and will not be tolerated. This includes "flaming" others via posts, replies or through private messages. Any use of the Community Forums that in GoonSquad’s sole opinion does not conform with these Guidelines or the Terms of Use is unacceptable and subject to removal. In addition, GoonSquad reserves the right to terminate your member account under such circumstances.

5. Keep it Spam Free

The Community Forums are provided as a convenience to GoonSquad members and guest and is not to be used for the promotion of third party services, products, websites, or organizations. Please refrain from posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of unauthorized solicitation.

6. Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”.

If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Please use the “post report” feature to report posts. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who constantly “act” as moderators may be warned or banned.

7.The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time.

8. The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings or ban (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.
The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time.

9. Signature and Avatar Guidelines

One of the perks of continued membership is having a custom signature for your posts. The contents of your sig must be acceptable for our community, and shall not contain any profanity, vulgarity, or insults/disparaging comments to our community or its members.

Thanks for posting this helps out a lot! Curious question though. Since, I paid 2.99 for membership is that considered helping financially? And, if so is sharing still required? If so it is no biggie I just was curious to know this as it was not fully clear to me.

Thanks again Smile

$2.99 Will make you a Red and give you access to our Hidden sections like Mesh and VIP sections. However you'll still be required to share stuff, only VIP members can it back and download without sharing.
If your name doesn't change red automatically, send your receipt/paypal transaction thing to me and I can change it asap.

This seems to be the perfect thread to ask.
I don't want to get my uploads and downloads out of balance. What I have noticed is that on some of the threads that are not sharing content like this one, I cant see the links to be able to look at the instructions above. (I have seen it by the way, but this is just an illustration

In Kings post I see this:

Memberships are explained here

Hidden Content:
You must reply to see links

So from what I read, replying to this message so I could see the link to the membership post counts as a download?
and if so, is there a way to differentiate *what* I'm looking at?

Please understand I'm not complaining, just trying to make sure I understand how this all works. Smile

When you reply it counts as a download but we se what you download and judge weather or not you've been leeching or contributing. Replying to non sharing things like, viewers, tutorials, announcements freebies/monthly gifts and of course things like this make your reply count go up but we don;t count it against you.
If that makes sense?
