1. DA ROOLZ



The main rule of the "English Only" subsection of Partyflock is... errr... English Only! (gee, simple ain't it? :D ) which means:

- no Dutch
- no mock English
(see below)
- no other languages (unless specified by a moderator)

after all, this section is meant to help our ever growing number of non-Dutch members, not to confuse them any more than they already are :P so unless it's to explain something (or anything like that), posting in Dutch *will* be considered an offense.


Other rules:

- avoid making duplicate threads - before you start a thread, check first if there isn't already one just like it. (Duplicate threads in the Dutch section don't count!)

- no spamming
- no dating
- careful with rude jokes (not all nationalities have the same sense of humor)
- easy on the nudie pics
- no need to prove every other reply that you know the word "fuck" :P
- no politically oriented stuff
- no racist remarks
- no "hello, I'm new here" threads please (we get 300 to 500 new members each day... imagine the mess that would make ;) )
- no off topic

and most of all:

- BE NICE! :lief:


Happy posting!
(F)




2. BANS



Here's how it works:

- Every time you violate this site's policy, you'll be issued a warning, which can get you anything from 0 to 3 demerits, depending on how serious the violation is. For instance: starting a duplicate thread gets you 0 (zero) demerits, starting a racist thread will get you 3 (three).

- As soon as the total of all your demerits so far is a multiple of 5 (so: 5, 10, 15, ...) you'll be temporarily banned from this site.

- The length of the ban will be determined by the total of demerits you've gained during the last 3 months, the so-called "active points". It's most definitely NOT allowed to circumvent bans by creating a second account. Such accounts will ALWAYS be permanently banned as soon as they're spotted.

- Permanent bans will rarely be issued in other cases, unless we're 100% positive that you've only joined to cause trouble.

Now of course it's always possible that you wish to dispute a warning or a ban, which you can do by
- mailing helpdesk@partyflock.nl or
- using this form: http://partyflock.nl/contact/form/ELEMENT/helpdesk or
- ask French Connection to mediate (only for those who don't speak Dutch).

However, it's always better just to be nice all of the time, which should save us all tons of trouble ;)

PS. if you've forgotten how many warnings / demerits / active points you have, just ask any one of the moderators!




3. SPAM



Do not, I repeat DO NOT send invitations for parties using the Personal Message ("PB") section. This is against this site's policy, classifies as "spam" and would get you 4 (yes, four) demerit points. :O

If you want to send multiple invitations, please contact promotie@partyflock.nl. Promotional PMs/PBs are from 1 cent up! (which is pretty cheap anyway ;) )

About "mock english"

"Mock English" is anything that may look or sound like English to some, but is utterly incomprehensible for somebody who is really English-based, just like the Swedish chef in the Muppet Show will sound slightly Swedish... except to someone from Sweden :P

Example 1. Replacing the original English sounds in a word with the corresponding Dutch sounds, e.g. "I love you very much" >> "Aai luf joe ferrie mutsj"

Example 2. Changing *some* words to English and keep others deliberately Dutch, e.g. "With my reet in the prikkeldreet" which really means "With my ass in the barbed wire"

Example 3. Doing a literal, Babelfish-like word-for-word translation, e.g. the Dutch expression "Hij ging het hoekje om" becomes "He went around the little corner" while it REALLY means "He kicked the bucket" (as in "died")

So the key factor is "comprehensibility for the English-spoken"... which means that spelling errors, dyslexia, accidental mistranslations (not quite the right word), chat lingo (ppl, btw, brb) and deliberate misspellings which are still completely comprehensible to those of Anglic descent (e.g. "Da Roolz") are NOT mock english and won't get you (or me) any demerits ;)

All clear now? :)

maybe he pissed the fly off?
hehehe, or his piss is so toxic it burnt a hole in it.

It's not really off-topic, or did you fall off?
Now that, really is-not-funny!
it's an inkoppertje O:)

can't translate that DSW, no whipping pls *looks scared*
 
"Inkoppertje"...

Try asking the translation in the right thread ;)

Ooh, and maybe there should be another "Rool" added...

That people should try some more to stay on-topic 8) Instead of chatting as if there life depended on it ;)
Instead of chatting as if there life depended on it

you mean, life doesn't depend on it? :o :/ :no:
 
If your life does depend on it... try finding the right (chat-)threads to fulfill your mission in life B)

Instead of using serious-meant threads. ;)
maybe I enjoy wasting my time, chatting about the serious things in life?
 
Chatting about serious things in life still isn't the reason this thread started ;)
and it isn't the reason why this thread is being closed either

:9

he psst, you're chatting to m8
 
You're right. So back OT :)
OT, don't you mean OTB?

as in On The Bitch

It's too bad... In the past I liked his rough way of rapping a lot :jaja:
true

but we're going off topic


Rulez ;)
 
better put this one back on top cuz some ppl act like it's not there :P
Ehy the need for an English forum? Just wondering...
 
Because Partyflock was getting more and more international members (which is nice), but quite often they got totally lost in here (which is a shame).

And now they have a place to ask questions and read stuff and chat on Pf too! (which is nice again) :D

After all, house music is an international thing, it brings people from all nationalities together, so why should Partyflock stay behind?

DSW What is da roolz? No mock english please!
 
is not "mock english"... it's perfectly understandable to the english-spoken ;)
 
no (without the T) mock english
geez...and I thought Dutch people were easy going...

Da roolz is more hacker-speak (or gangsta-speak) than mock English. And If you really wanted to "correct" his sentence, you would have written it as:

IT is not "mock english"...

careful with rude jokes (not all nationalities have the same sense of humor)

using the word cancer sounds less rude to me then the Dutch word for this illness: kanker.

But before i will happily throw around with sentences like "i wish you cancer, cancer in the head!" i like to know if English people use this word to curse eachother?

BTW: In Holland this is for many people not done!

Just to answer your question..no. We English-speakers are more likely to insult each other using the f-bomb and other sex-related insults.

Pfff the diseases that people here to each other wish is much more insulting than "fuck you", "sucker", or "motherfucker" :yes:
