1) Use images
, hosted on an imagehost, for identification. Linking to sites other than imagehosts (streaming video sites, galleries, paysites etc.) is not allowed.
If you have a working link to a filehost you can post it in addition
to your screencaps.
2) Do not just use links to filehosts. (see rule 1)
3) Do not use cash generating links. Trying to make money when asking a favor makes you look like an ass and no one will help you.
4) No bumping within 7 days of your last post.
5) Add the Content Icon (blonde, brunette, black, asian, etc.) it may help.
6) Do not offer a reward (e.g. RS account, paypal payment, post) for a successful identification - (NEW Oct 8th 2009)
Breaking any one of these simple rules will result in the thrashing of your thread.
Of course we also expect you to follow the General Forum Rules
and please leave a 'thanks' if someone has solved your request.
