Every video must have a screenshot preview. Thumbnailed screenshots and multiple screenshots are optional. If using promo pictures make sure they do not contain any logos with URLs or trademarks. Any 3rd party logos or watermarks on the screenshots can not contain links or otherwise point or redirect to any 3rd party websites. You may however "sign" your screenshots with your custom logo or signature if you want to as long as it's not violating above stated rule.
Do not use file hosts for previews. An image host must be used for your screens.

Do not post more than 1 thread in the same niche in the same section. You may have several threads in one section only if they cover different subjects/niches.
Do not mislead people by posting content that does not match the title. For example do not post MILF porn in Teen thread, or gay in mainstream and so on.
Do not use titles like "H0t Te*ns Fuuuuuck4ing leik cr8zy!". Make your titles clean, presentable and on the subject.
Do not use auto posting software. Violators will be banned.
General Posting Guidelines
Post appropriate content in appropriate sections as set forth by section description.
You have to include at least one preview or sample for each set whether it is a video or a picture set. This sample has to be either a full-sized hotlinked picture or an expandable thumb. We recommend to post between 3 and 15 previews for each set.
Password protected files that are legitimately password protected are allowed.
No bumping. (All bumped threads will be deleted)
No topic hijacking of any kind. (Posting content in someone else's thread, going off topic)
Search for topics before posting and/or requesting. Its probably already been posted somewhere.

No reposting/double posting of any kind
No cross posting. (Do not post the same files @XXX Search and @fetishbb)
Do not use auto posting software. Violators will be banned.
Do not flood. While we do not generally limit the number of posts or threads or time between posts we would like to urge you not to take advantage of that and post every 30 seconds or every minute. Please adhere to a reasonable time between posts of let's say 10-15 minutes. This concerns mostly those posting in single post per thread sections, but megathread owners please be aware of that as well!
Everything posted on XXX Search has to be free after it has been downloaded. Please do not cheat users by requiring some form of payment (like SMS for example or paid archives) to actually view/use content after it has been downloaded. This primarily concerns the GAMES section.
It is the members responsibility to read and follow these rules. Failure to read these rules is not an excuse. Failure to understand the English language is also not an excuse.
Post all Fetish (rаpe Fantasies, Scat, Watersports, Shemale, BDSM, etc.)
Avatar & Signature Rules
Avatar's are to be no more then 110X130 in size.
Avatar's are not to be offensive in nature (rаpe, death etc.)
Signatures should not be oversized. 250X150 @ under 250k is a good size.
Signatures should also be non-offensive in nature. (Same applies here as it does to Avatar's)
No advertising of any kind, and no affiliate links whatsoever. You may put a link to your XXX Search thread in your signature, but signature spamming will lead to a ban.
You signature must look neat and tidy. You can use any images or animation as long as they are not for advertising purposes. You signature must not exceed approximately 2 lines in size (250X150 @ under 250k).
Users with signatures in violation of these rules will be warned to fix their signatures. Failure to do so will result in any number of disciplinary actions, including but not limited to: forced removal of the signature, permanent ban, or any other form of punishment we deem appropriate.
Explicit guidelines
Please do not request a post to be stickied. Only exceptional posts will be stickied if there is room.
Topics which use a poll to petition a sticky are not allowed.
Asking any staff member if you can be a part of the staff will hinder your chance of ever becoming one.
Double Content Rule

VIP status

As you might know a person can have a VIP status on this board and there are a few rules in place on how to get it.
Become moderator and earn the status when retiring (unwritten rule)
Really very important persons for the forum - the admins decide
We have decided to expand this a little bit and introduce some perks to VIP status holders as well as ease up the process of getting it.

To get a VIP you have to be a well established contributor. If you think you meet the criteria, you can go ahead and PM Administrator (me) your request for a VIP upgrade. I will review it, decide and let you know!

Time restrictions for objections - The objections about ban or penalty can be raised within 7 days after the attachment. After this deadline, no objections can be accepted.

Becoming a Moderator

We at XXX Search want to let you know that anyone can become a moderator provided you meet certain criteria. We are constantly monitoring our board and when you guys make reports pointing out rules violations and other problems that we need to fix, we always take notes. When and if we see that a person is doing a good job spotting violations we talk to them and in some cases promote to a moderator's position.

We have a lot of people requesting to be promoted to a moderator and to make it easy for us to decide you should make yourself and your intentions to become a moderator known by taking an active part and submit reports when you see a violation of some sort. We'll be monitoring your activities, communicating with you and some of you may be selected for a promotion!

Changing file hosting service for your files

Due to the poor reliability of file hosts these days a new annoying trend has evolved. Posters switching hosts create new threads and mess up their old threads by renaming them, messing up posts e.t.c. This is causing issues with forum performance.

This is going to be forbidden now. From now on when you switch a file host you have two options:
Edit your thread and replace links to the links on a new host.
You may start a new thread but you will need to first contact a moderator or forum admin and let them know that you are starting a new thread, inform them about your old thread which will be moved to Trash but otherwise left intact.
Please check this rules often as it will be updated as needed.
