      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.

Jeremy the Bug

Jeremy the Bug FAQ

358 posts in this topic

Who is Jeremy?

I run LIGHTS websites and stuff. I make sure that the fans stay updated with news regarding LIGHTS.

Be sure and watch these videos where LIGHTS talks about me:

JtB Origin vid on Facebook

LIGHTS' Video blog 34

Does Jeremy run LIGHTS Myspace?

Yes and no. I post the need to know information and sometimes help to upload videos, tour dates, and photos but i DO NOT read the messages or select the fan art that goes on Myspace. So, LIGHTS runs everything.

How do I know if I'm talking to Jeremy or LIGHTS?

If i post on LIGHTS' profile or with her account, I will always sign off my messages with a J, Jeremy, or like signature. Of course, if I post with my own account like Twitter of Facebook, i only sometimes sign off as J or Jeremy.

Jeremy! Where are my stickers?!

We ran out and I'm getting more stickers printed. I haven't gotten a date for them yet. Also, there is a backlog of over 5,000 requests so once I get more stickers in, i will be slowly mailing them out.

Are you LIGHTS merch guy/ are you on tour with her?

No, I'm holding down the fort in cyberspace. Its important that i stay off the road so that i can get all the latest news to you! I'm interested to see how many times the merch guy has been asked if he was me. wink.gif

What is the usual diet for a bug such as yourself?

im not on a strict diet so i pretty much eat anything. my favorite is asian cuisine.

What's your favourite LIGHTS song?

Off of the EP, "Drive My Soul". If this was a sneaky question to get me to uncover my favorite song from the new record you will have to wait smile.gif

Did you ever tryout for the Beatles only to come to a harsh realization that it was not actually a band of beetles?

Sadly, no. The Beatles were a little before my time and i don't have the talent to even be in the same room as them. My favorite Beatles song is Elenor Rigby.

Why are you so multi-colored? Was your dad a bug, and your mom a rainbow?

I don't think I would be able to work with LIGHTS if i wasn't a colorful character (pun intended) would I?

Does the J-man have a Lady bug?

single.

How long has "thebug" been your alter ego?

Since i started working on the LIGHTS project. You really have to ask LIGHTS the reasoning behind that since she dubbed me that. I like to think its because I bug people (zing!) about LIGHTS or vice versa.

What got you interested in working with LIGHTS?

The questions should be what didn't interest me and i can honestly say not much! I think its important for me to tell you that I'm here because i enjoy LIGHTS' music and I respect her as an artist. Also, I really believe that you, the "fans", are a reflection of LIGHTS as an artist- passionate, creative, and so much more. Without the fans there would be no Jeremy. biggrin.gif

Favorite Childhood Memory?

I don't know if this counts as childhood but definitely the first concert i ever went to as a teen- that really opened my eyes to music.

If it was possible to get the whole Board to go to a single concert, would you show up and tell us it's you??

Maybe. Who knows how i might feel about it in a few months or a year's time. One of the main reasons I don't have photos of myself is so i can stay incognito and hang out with fans. Its kinda like when you're at a show and singing along to a song- if you know someone is watching, you either clam up or sing louder. I don't know if that makes any sense or not.. Anyways, we are all here because we share a mutual love for LIGHTS' music- this isn't about me. This community exists for you and LIGHTS.

Do you and LIGHTS hang out?

I'm convinced that if we are in one room together for long enough the universe might implode with so much awesomeness and geekery. (totally kidding)

Jeremy will you give/ send LIGHTS my _________?

I can't but you can reach her on Myspace and Twitter yourself. The main reason is because I can't guarantee she will see/ get it and that I think its personal.

Favorite Ninja Turtle and Pokemon?

Donatello and its a tie between Dugtrio and Abra the psychic pokemon. (i don't know the names of any of the newer ones!)

If you had superpowers, what would you have and why?

I wish my human form can fly or teleport. Then, i could be somewhere else in a blink of an eye. Now, if i wanted a useful i would choose technopathy or some sort of psychic ability. I work on my computer all day so if i had the ability to talk to it i would be so much easier!

All time favorite video game?

That is REALLY hard! For a console: Mario Kart on DS because i have really fun memories of my brother and I "racing" against strangers in an airport (we still do). Now, for an arcade game its a tie between Fatal Fury, Time Crisis II or Dragon's Lair. Computer game- Diablo or when i used to MUD.

Console- Nintendo DS because I only have time for short spurt gaming nowadays and i can just pick it up, play for half an hour and put it down. Currently im playing Assasin's Creed.

Are you LIGHTS?

No. I am not LIGHTS and LIGHTS is not me.

How do i send Jeremy the Bug stuff?

My address is:

Jeremy the Bug mail stop: W- 2-6

c/o 3300 Warner Blvd.

Burbank, CA 91505

LOL these are so great, especially the merch guy one. If someone even asked me about that, I'm sure Lights' poor merch guy got that question alot this past month. I wonder what his reaction was the first time someone asked him, haha, he probably got used to it by the end. :P Thanks for clearing up these faq's for us. ;)
