    dvxuser.com is meant to be a serious filmmaking resource, and while the primary focus of the equipment forums is the panasonic dvx100 and hvx200, we welcome filmmakers with any equipment. This site is not affiliated with panasonic, and users are free to express their opinions on any piece of equipment. More than anything else, we value users that can share their technical knowledge and experience—at any level. We also appreciate well-reasoned questions that give the community a chance to explore filmmaking issues and learn. We have some very simple guidelines that will help make your experiences here go smoothly.

    Respect your fellow filmmakers -- regardless of age, experience, or opinion, you should always show respect to fellow users. Personal insults of any sort are not tolerated. If you feel another user’s post is inappropriate, please report the post or contact a moderator. Participating in a flame war is uncool even if someone else started it—and just like mom and dad, we’ll give you both timeouts. Be slow to give offense and slow to take offense—a lot of disputes are just plain misunderstanding or miscommunication. This is a worldwide community, and english is not the native tongue of some of our members. Please exercise patience and extend the benefit of the doubt to those who are taking the effort to communicate in english just to participate with us.

    Please don’t post any messages on the topics of—politics, religion, or explicit sexuality -- not that we don’t find these topics interesting—we do, but they’re not appropriate for this filmmaking forum.

    Please don’t post any images or links to images with explicit sexual content -- nudity in still images is not acceptable. Links to films that contain nudity are acceptable as long as the post is appropriately labeled for content. Links to any pornographic content are unacceptable.

    No trolling -- expressing an opinion is fine, but if you’re hanging out in a particular camera forum in order to “convince” users that a particular camera is no good—you’re trolling. The individual camera forums exist to serve as technical and informational resources—not as personal soapboxes. Posts that are meant to provoke other users (baiting) are not acceptable. Also, please limit yourself to one username per person.

    The search engine rocks! -- before you ask a question, please do a search. We have an enormous amount of content and there’s a good chance that your question has been asked before—probably several times.

    Please check to see if a thread on your topic already exists. If you have a question or comment about a particular topic, it’s a much better idea to post on a recent existing thread, because it helps keep our content organized.

    Please post in the correct forum -- posting in inappropriate forums makes extra work for the moderators and you may find your post moved or deleted if you didn’t bother to find the correct forum. Also, no crossposting--please only post your question in a single forum.

    the café -- the café exists as a space for dvxusers to hang out and chill together. Filmmaking posts that don’t fit in any other of the forums should be posted in the café. Non-filmmaking topics are acceptable, but please limit your non-film-related posts. Most of your posts should be outside of the café.

    signatures -- all banners should be 569x70 pixels and please—no animation in your sig. Weird-sized, gigantic, and animated banners make our eyes hurt—and the forum hard to read.

    Advertising policy -- please contact jarred land to arrange advertising for any commercial product, including films. Uncleared advertisements will be removed. if you’re using dvxuser to promote something, you should also be contributing something to the dvxuser community. Personal video and film related items should be listed in the marketplace forum. No ebay links, and please post when the item is sold.

    Violating dvxuser policy -- the normal procedure will be: 1) warning by private message [pm], 2) temporary ban if the warning is ignored, 3) permanent ban for continuing problems. However, if you go out of your way to violate the rules, we can and will skip straight to #3.

    Self-moderation -- for the most part, the users here practice self-moderation. Take a moment to think before you post and if you’re unsure of something, ask a moderator. We’d rather be concentrating on the fun stuff like running dvxfest, writing reviews, and offering technical advice. If you’re a newbie, you’re welcome here, but you may want to spend a week or two reading posts and seeing how things work before you dive right in.

    Thanks for following the guidelines and welcome to the forum.

    TC has it down perfect. The place is starting to look like a supermarket (and in my case a movie strobe light). So please, everyone start making changes because we're gonna start making them for you.

    Thanks !

    COMMERCIAL SIG POLICY

    You are not allowed to have a commercial signature unless you are a supporter of the site, or a Moderator. You can contact me about becoming a sponsor. Its not fair to our other advertisers, nor me who pays for this (free) website.

    The only compay links you can have in your sig is your personal production website, or personal website, an ISARA link if you want to support them, or a link for your DVXfest movie.

    Thanks everyone, and hope you understand.

    Jarred.
