Frequently Asked Questions
Although the ControlBooth.com Senior Team does not and cannot immediately review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we do reserve the right to delete any message or lock any thread for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless ControlBooth.com, its Senior Team, with respect to any claim based upon transmission of any message on this website.
Keep in mind that the Senior Team are here to help. They volunteer their time to help make this community an enjoyable place for all, and deserve your respect - whether you agree with them or not. If you feel that a like a Senior Team member is treating you unfairly, take up the matter with an administrator. Bad-mouthing a Senior Team or CBMod or any member publicly is a one-way ticket to Bantown, population: you.
Also, remember that moderators are moderators, and members are members. Even though you may feel compelled to step in, and we do appreciate that you are only trying to help, please leave the moderating up to the moderators. Otherwise, some may feel you are being bossy or butting into their business. While not all situations may end up this way, the possibility is there, and we would like to avoid it. We provide the "report post" feature precisely for this reason, so feel free to take advantage of it.
While we protect your email address that is listed in your profile, (it only appears to visitors that are logged-in) we cannot guarantee the privacy of anything you post in a publicly accessible thread, and thus you should never post your email address to one. Spammers have gotten quite cunning in obtaining addresses from the Internet. Unless it's in a PM, (which are secure and only you, the recipient, and board administrators can read) anyone and anything can harvest that address for nefarious reasons. This is just a suggestion however, and not an absolute rule. Nevertheless, don't come crying to us if your email inbox fills up faster than a roadcase after a concert.
When posting, try not to ask stupid questions. We are familiar with the belief that, "There are no stupid questions — only stupid people." On the Internet, however, the first is not always the case. A stupid question is one that you could have found the answer to yourself if you would have just searched the website, or one that you're asking in the wrong place. If you search and don't find the answer to your question, and you have reason to believe that you are looking for the answer in the right place, go ahead and ask. Fortunately, most ControlBooth.com surfers are kindly folks who will be happy to help you out, even if some may consider your question to be stupid. However, it is only polite to take advantage of their time if you absolutely have to, so be sure to search first.
Keep on-topic for the thread in question. The ControlBooth.com Senior Team will provide guidance and re-direction when topics venture too far into the gray area between on-topic and off-topic. Our purpose is to keep the community flowing in the right direction (as defined by the ControlBooth.com Mission Statement), not to attack anyone's position or thought.
At ControlBooth.com, we will support Fair Use as long as the media was purchased legally and is appropriately licensed for your intended use. Again, that is the extent of the topic that we are willing to cover. Any topics on breaking DRM scheme's even if it violates what is understood to be Fair Use, will not be tolerated on this site and it will be deleted without warning.
