Forum guidelines

Post by pagefault » Sat May 11, 2019 4:35 pm

i will try to be as brief as possible with this, but there's some important stuff that needs to be covered here:


0. general conduct
these guidelines apply site-wide, in all contexts including private messages. they are the most important ones that are most likely to get you banned entirely from the site for breaching.

1. dont be edgy.
dont post swastikas or use slurs or make fun of people for their identities. the staff here, myself especially, had our fill of edge when we were teenagers. you'll get yourself banned very fast by being an edgelord.

2. dont be a dick.
treat others with respect and try to settle things without having to call the mods. we shouldnt have to be involved with every little incident, be mature so that we dont have to.

3. keep your dick in your pants.
keep sexual or otherwise graphic content off of this site. we arent interested, keep that to yourself. save it for other places on the net intended for being horny, there's minors here.

4. keep malware samples in the submission forums.
put malware where it's supposed to go. dont post samples in general and absolutely dont pm samples to people.

5. coppa.
if you're under 13 and found out to be under 13 you'll be banned. there will very rarely, if ever, be exceptions to this, because vxhell is hosted in the united states which has a law known as coppa. coppa says we cant solicit the personal info necessary to register to this site from kids without parental permission. getting parental permission is a pain in the ass, and we cant really be fucked to bother. sorry.


1. self-made submissions
these guidelines apply to malware submissions under the "self-made malware" forum
malware submitted to the site will not be available to everyone to download, but it will be available to the subset of users in the trusted downloaders group (which implicitly includes featured uploaders and staff)

1. dont be lazy.
dont take something someone else made. dont use a virus generator. write your own thing and put in some effort.

2. no batch.
i mean it. there are obviously exceptions to this, use common sense, but if you post a shitty batch file you copy-pasted from a youtube tutorial from 2009 you might just get banned over it. we're really, really tired of seeing batch trash after what happened on danooct1.com.

3. do not reupload samples to other sites.
this is possibly the most important one. the "trusted downloaders" group is a way of keeping people from abusing and spreading samples posted to this site. downloaders abusing the trust we place in them to publicly reupload things from here removes that safeguard entirely. doing this is extremely unacceptable, and will result in having your privileges to download permanently suspended and your account banned. no exceptions. viruses dont harm, but assholes with access to them can and do.

4. keep the general conduct guidelines in mind.
malware that displays obscene garbage will probably just be entirely deleted and, depending on the content, you may end up banned. dont do that.


2. general submissions
guidelines that apply to the "general" submissions forum
the "only trusted downloaders can actually download stuff" still applies to this forum

1. dont post something someone explicitly asked for you not to post.
that's rude. if we hear about it, we'll take down the file.

2. dont reupload samples from vxheaven.org.
it's a waste of everyone's time and resources. there's a copy of the vxheaven archive running off of the same server already. please dont do this.


that's all for now...
these guidelines might be changed at any time, but ill try to bump the topic when they change so you know to check them for updates.
thanks for reading all of this. no, seriously, way too many people dont >.<

bump, added guidelines for the general submissions section as well as an explicit statement in the self-made section about not reuploading things (aka being a piece of shit)
