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? :)

Why should we speak english? there are some words we don't know in English... and we don't like to search it in a VAN DALE don't we?
But there are also positive sides of PF in English:
- Dutch people can learn a little bit more English...
- We Dutch people can have English friends and English people Dutch friends...

So... That's all Folks!
:P

you kinda just answered your own ? there :lol:
I Don't understand you:O
u mean me???

if so, the dude there asked 'why should we speak english, there are some words we dont know...'

if he/she speaks english in the forums he/she will learn the wordz they dont know; therefore, they answered their own question :) :P

Well i think it's great to have an english only section.
Now i at least can keep on practising my english.
Speaking it goes well, writing also, but sometimes i get a little lost in how to write some words correctly, so this way i can practice with real people and not(like when i was in school) have a blond haired english teacher in front who i have to correct:lol:

Hey moderators and webmasters!

http://partyflock.nl/country/10:Spanje

This information is not correct.

Spain is divided into 17 autonomous communities and 50 provinces

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomous_communities_of_Spain

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_Spain

they only add foreign countries when someone from that city asks partyflock to add that city..

so it can be that some city's/provinces not here on this site.

look for some other contries and you will find out what I mean:)

Really, with Firefox "citeer" is not allowed.
I also have Internet Explorer, of course.

Thnx! :)
