      Official Board Rules + Regulations   01/07/2010

      <b>Official Board Rules + Regulations Hello and welcome to The Official LIGHTS Message Board! We hope you find this to be a friendly place to discuss LIGHTS and everything in-between. Please read on for some general rules and etiquette: 1. Post threads in their appropriate forums. Official News: Here you will find most of the recent LIGHTS news. For complete updates visit iamlights.com for more. Forum News: This forum is for all news and updates on the messages boards. Check this forum for updates on the board rules, how to contact the board admin/mods, and more. Help + Support: Having trouble with the boards or need help finding your way around? Post in this forum. New Member Lounge: New members please read this section to find forum rules, guidlines, etc. This section is reserved to talk about you so introduce yourself! If you are new to the boards, please remember to check the board rules. Welcome to the boards and we look forward to chatting with you! LIGHTS Discussion: This forum is for all discussion about LIGHTS, LIGHTS' music and her new album coming soon. See the Official News section for any updates on upcoming albums and new songs. Rumor threads will most likely be addressed by a board admin or mod, but are subject to being closed. Photos: LIGHTS related photo be shared here. Media: All video and other media links can be posted and discussed here. Tour & Shows: All of LIGHTS' tour dates and shows will be posted here. Meet other fans going to shows in your area and discuss all other show related details. Music: Use this forum to post about other musicians you enjoy. Please search the forum before posting. There is most likely a thread on your favorite artist/band you want to chat about. If there is no thread for your band/artist, then feel free to post. Movies & TV: This is the place to talk about your favorite movies. Please don’t double post about the same movie. For example, if there is a thread on Harry Potter and you have info on when it’s going to be available as a DVD, post in the “Harry Potter” thread instead of creating a new thread; however, each Harry Potter movie may have separate topics because of the different titles (that way there isn’t one massive Harry Potter Thread). General Entertainment: Post and discuss other entertainment topics with members here. General Discussion: Discuss whatever’s on your mind here. There’s everything from video games, pets, world events, and more. Creative Lounge: If you love to create web graphics, art, or photography, share your work here. Feel free to post graphic requests and even questions and tutorials here too. Pointless Fun: Looking for a game or to have some fun? Participate in forum games and join the fun! The Secret Clubhouse: This section is private and viewable only to registered members. Use this section to organize fan meetups or discuss personal topics. 2. What To Post: Please be considerate of all board members by thinking before you post. Make sure to use your search button or be willing to go back a few pages to see if something has already been posted so that the information isn't repeated time and time again! For example, when you see a thread discussing LIGHTS' latest video and you want to share your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather than starting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however, please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more than one forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to run more smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If you posted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it has suddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum. Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannot find it. Also, feel free to refer back to the forum descriptions above when posting topics. If you aren’t sure where to post, come back here and re-read the info. Choose the forum that MOST relates to your topic. 3. Member Relationships: A lot of people here have become good friends. Some people are on here every day and have relationships outside of the boards. Do not expect to make friends over night. Don’t be afraid of posting or asking questions. We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contact the board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make this message board a great place for all LIGHTS Fans to hang out. If you stick around though, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. ** That said, please be extra cautious giving out any personal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/private information on the boards. ** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion; however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK. Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is no need to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all ages read these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I think people can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solve anything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will be taken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at. Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers, obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admin a message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks, Drama Llamas, and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This can be classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turning into something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoid these, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of you because you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered a personal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly defined later, that can be arranged. Drama Llamas: It is easy to let disagreements that arise on the forum to other platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. Sure, its easy to passive aggressively post about a member you don't like. Please keep in mind that there is a fine line between expressing yourself and insulting people for attention. That type of drama doesn't do anyone any good. Also, information shared in confidence shouldn't be posted and passed around elsewhere. It becomes a game of hearsay and that instigates drama. 6. Closed/Deleted Threads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will be consequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators. Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Most likely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if you are unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/mod that closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion. However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited (especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts: Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the rules listed above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s not closed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, it is not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time. Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatly appreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a description why the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them know what they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts. If there are certain members causing trouble in a particular thread, make sure you include their usernames and why you think they should be reported. ** To report a post, use the Report button on the bottom-left hand side of each post. If you can’t find it and still want to report the thread, copy the thread link and send it in a message to the board admin/mods. ** 8. Signature Guidelines: For more information on signature guidelines, click here. 9. Spelling and Grammar: When posting, please make sure to double check your spelling. Additionally, please refrain from using text/AIM speak such as, "i wnt 2 tlk b4 tmrrw" or "idk y u r tlking lyke that". It's ok to use some terms like "lol", "bff" or other common abbreviations, but please don't compose a whole post like that. We appreciate your input and want to make sure that everyone can read it. Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as your default posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make your posts difficult for members to read. 10. File Trading/Bootlegs: Discussion of how and where to obtain bootleg (illegally recorded) audios or videos is not allowed. Direct links to such files will be removed promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keep such discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or not something is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting in the audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired on television, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do not hesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like to post is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for LIGHTS and any other performers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11. Becoming a Board Mod: If you are interested in applying for a board mod position (or suggesting another member), please PM the board Admin for more information. You can also email your application to lightsnoise@gmail.com stating why you think you'd be a good moderator, any previous experience, etc. Only the board Admin has the ability to add new mods. Any threads about mods (ie suggesting members, bashing mods, etc) will be deleted. If you have concerns about the boards, either post them in the Help section or address it with another admin/mod. 12. Respect Board Mods and Administrators Mods and Admins are only doing their jobs to enforce rules. They are volunteers that are passionate about the community and help it to run. Disrespect towards mods will not be tolerated. However, if you feel they have acted harshly, please contact me privately and i will pass evaluate the issue. The mods are very nice people and if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact them. They are full of knowledge. 13. LIGHTS Private Life/ Personal Information LIGHTS deserves her privacy. As a result, discussing her personal relationships including rumors and speculations regarding her personal relationships are not allowed. LIGHTS gives us enough of herself through writing songs, performing, blogging/ tweeting, meeting fans, etc. She deserves to have something that's only hers. I believe that throwing out opinions on how we feel about her relationships cheapens it. She doesn't deserve to have her life critiqued by us let alone on HER official forum 14. No Self Harm Posts If you are feeling like you may harm yourself, please contact someone who can help Call: 1-800- 273- 8255 Visit http://www.suicidepr...onlifeline.org/ http://www.twloha.com/find-help You can also contact The Trevor Project at: http://thetrevorproject.org or by calling their lifeline at: 866- 488- 7386 If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of your Administrators or Moderators.

Soul Crystals - Little Machines Second Leg Tour Project

74 posts in this topic

EDIT!!!

 

Let me tell you guys, if you are AT ALL interested in this project, PLEASE continue to give them to her at your shows! She's SO stoked on this project and LOVES receiving these! Even if it's not authentic, she adores this project. She said to me "Someone gave me a piece of gravel, and someone else a sea shell, and it's SO COOL! It still means so much." I ran into her at the mall the day of my show, and she immediately asked me if I had crystals for her!

PLEASE don't be discouraged if you missed the initial run of this project.

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

So, there's a really cool post floating around on Tumblr where someone paired up crystals with Lights' albums.

 

Becca and I were really thrilled and inspired by this idea, and Becca had an awesome idea for a project for this leg that I thought was really cute and I thought we should run with it.

 

We want to expand upon this idea or pairing crystals with Lights' music.

Kind of like the Keys To Our Hearts project, we were thinking of making Lights a bit of a treasure chest containing the crystals of our souls.

We were thinking that since Becca has a P.O. Box set up, people could purchase a small inexpensive crystal and ship it to that P.O. box with a letter explaining why you chose it to give to Lights.

We will compile all of the crystals into a treasure chest/box with the letters and give them all to her at once. The idea is to choose a crystal that represents your favorite album, favorite song, yourself, maybe one that you just plain like a lot or that you read has some cool healing properties or representation or something. You can find them all over the internet, and you may be able to find a small shop in your town that sells them. You could even just stop by a craft store and pick out a crystal-y looking bead or something. It doesn't necessarily have to be authentic... I know not everyone can afford to go out buying and shipping these things. But for real, there are really inexpensive ones out there. We want to put a bunch of these in a box, so we definitely don't want you buying a giant chunk. Added bonus, if you order online you can just get it shipped to Becca's P.O. box!

 

 

We also wanted to make something so that anyone can participate, because there are a lot of people out there who won't have the opportunity to see her, but still have something fun and creative and different that can come together in the end to be something really cool. She could even make jewelry out of them later if she wanted to.

 

I know Becca has a ton to add to this, so I know she'll be posting later in this thread.

 

Becca's show is 2/20 in Dallas

My show is 3/04 in Norfolk

These are your deadlines

We're thinking that if there aren't a ton of participants, we'll extend the deadline to my show so that I can get the box to her.

 

Either way, if you come upon this thread a little late and the tour is still happening, you could always bring your crystal to her directly at your show, or ship it to one of us if there's time. We really want to try to give her a full treasure chest, though, but there's certainly no harm in adding to it later!

 

What do you guys think?

This sounds awesome! I saw the photo on Instagram and fell in love with it. I'm seeing her at the end of this month but I'd still love to participate. Never got the chance to participate in the Key to our Hearts project :c

FEB 6 EDIT:
i made a new tumblr post to get the word out!!! please reblog if you're a tumblrer!! :P




hey guys!

 

so i do have a lot to add to this. whew. thank you zetanai for starting the thread.

 

my vision for this is for everyone to set an intention for the *small* crystal of their choosing, so when lights holds it and reads the letter attached, she can look at the crystal and understand what you want her to get from it. lights loves getting encouragement from her fans.. i mean, who doesn't love encouragement. and we all need it, especially people in the music industry.

 

so, please pour your heart out in the letter you attach. i'm asking you tape the crystal to it with scotch tape, fold it up in a regular envelope. for you artists out there feel free to decorate the envelope. also make sure you get the postage stamp right, crystals weigh more than paper. PLEASE make sure it is small enough to be mailed inside an envelope. i do not plan on opening the letters, that is lights' job.. so keep in mind that this crystallized treasure chest will be full of envelopes when she opens it. be as creative as you want too! :)

 

 *also like zetanai said, you may just have an inexpensive crystal mailed to my po box from the internet and type a letter for me to print and attach myself*

 

i will be making an announcement (*http://brightenedbylights.tumblr.com/post/107112102594/soul-crystals-little-machines-second-leg-tour*) on my lights-only tumblr. please check it out! feel free to shoot me a message on here, tumblr or facebook if you have questions, and for my po box to send the crystal letter.

i'd like to thank Braden for the inspiring crystal post that sparked this idea of mine.

 

thanks everyone, hope you participate~!

I'm just a backup.

So mailing it to becca would be best.

This is a good idea but what about the people going to the concerts and planning on meeting her? Do we just give her our crystals?

sorry I'm taking so long to make the post about this on brightenedbylights. been very busy with life, lol.

 

you may give her a crystal at your own show if you like. remember it is more difficult to meet her now... but the mailing thing is mainly for the people who cannot make a show this leg of the lm tour. :D

I might mail it Seeing as how your dates first. But if I mail it I'll mail an envelope for Lights inside one of those other mailing ones you get at the post office because I hate stamps and just go straight down to the place to mail s*** out. So if I do just open the bigger envelope to get the smaller one. 

 

But I'm relying on taxes for this whole show since I have no job right meow. So depending on how timing goes and when I get my tax return to order a crystal I'l decide if I'l have time to mail it out, or if I'll have to take it myself.

Really excited for this tour project!!! :)and I just want to add- I whipped up my little crystal post within like 30 minutes or so, and I based it off color, really, I'm not really familiar with properties or aspects certain crystals are associated with, but if anyone has ideas I'd love to hear them!! especially what you plan  on picking because I'm on a little crystal hunt of my own now!! (ALSO MY TICKETS CAME IN THE MAIL FOR THE CHARLOTTE DATE! WHOS EXCITED?! WOO!!!)
