3 simple rules as of now:
1. No Hotlinking.
I'm very insistent on this rule. Its the MOST IMPORTANT Rule of DBSKer and must be taken seriously. My contributors and I use loads of our limited internet time just to upload these files for you. It would really be nasty of you to just post our links elsewhere. I will be very upset if you do so.
2. Taking out stuff out of DBSKer.
I don't have a rule against taking any clips/songs/videos/lyrics out of DBSKer. If you wanna upload/post them anywhere, etc., feel free to do so. But try not to misuse this freedom by causing trouble for us. One more thing is, please don't take out tags like [badstar] or [tvfxqforever] or [GOE;SS] because that would amount to stealing. Also, please CREDIT FULLY if you take out lyrics. If it says you need to ask permission, please do. Don't get me in trouble.
3. A word of thanks + credit.
Downloads and lyrics taken out should credit DBSKer. Same reason as in Rule 1, a lot of time was spent doing it. So we would really appreciate some credit or a word of thanks. Also don't forget to check the credits post to see who provided the files and thank them appropriately too.
ADDITIONAL RULES by GOE;SS (Applicable to GOE;SS Files)
1. English hardsubbed videos SHOULD NOT be redistributed on other Clubbox, YouTube, Veoh, Dailymotion, Crunchyroll, Mazooki, etc.
Only the STAFF have the right to do this.
2. English softsubs can only be used for your own hardsubbing and when it will be translated to another language (Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Viet, etc.) provided that you will give FULL and PROPER credits to the GOE;SS and you have asked the permissions of the administrators Sanbi and badstar (PM them on soompi).
3. All files should not be renamed in any way.
Note: for Lyrics by Krissy/system_chaos/kroongho @ LJ. The note below applies.
'PLEASE ASK PERMISSION FROM KRISSY FIRST IF YOU DECIDE TO REPOST HER WORK SOMEWHERE ELSE. OR TRANSLATE THE SONG INTO ANOTHER LANGUAGE USING HER VERSION. SHE DOES NOT BITE UNLESS PROVOKED'

Q: Megaupload links that display "All download slots assigned to your country ( __ ) are in use".
The easiest solution for this is to download the Megaupload Toolbar as recommended by the site. With the toolbar, you're assured of a download slot.
Q: "Download limit exceeded" message for Megaupload links.
Megaupload only allows one download at a time if you don't have a Premium Account. I just stumbled on this website from one of the forums that helps you generate a premium link. Just register an account first. Then you can copy the URL and paste it in the box given. Then it'll generate a code for you to download. It also works if you don't have the Megaupload Toolbar. This I hope will solve all your MU download queries.
Q: Filefront links just bring me to the main page on Filefront.com.
This means the upload has been deleted by filefront. ARGH. Just let me know which file either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or drop a comment in the download post. I'll re-upload the file if I still have it.
Q: What are those files that are named .001, .002, etc and how can they be played? OR; Why can my player only play Part 1 of the clip but not Part 2?
These are files split with HJSplit as they were too large to upload because the filehost does not support such huge files. Just download HJSplit, open the program, select "Join" and then browse for the input file which should be the file that ends with .001. HJSplit will automatically seach for the other files in sequence and join them together. The result will be a full and complete file without any .001 at the end. You may delete the unjoined files and keep the new joined file.
Q: When I play a file there's no visual or no audio. Why does this happen?
Okay.. My guess is you're either not using the appropriate program to play the media files or you don't have the codec to play the files. I'm using Storm Codec or K-Lite Codec Pack (Standard) which should take care of all possible media file types. I recommend you use Media Player Classic (included with the above download pack) that plays your file. You can right click on the video and select "Play with Media Player Classic" or "Open With..", then select Media Player Classic. If this doesn't solve your problem. Then it is beyond me to help you further. Maybe you should try the Tech Discussion Threads at various forums.
If anyone wants to correct me on anything here, do feel free to drop a comment. I'm not exactly an expert in these stuffs. But that's what I know of it from my limited knowledge. With that said, Happy viewing!
Q: What's the difference between softsubs and hardsubs? How do I used them?
Hardsubbed videos have the subtitles attached to the video itself. Therefore, the subtitles comes with the video itself. Softsubs on the other hand are separate subtitle files that operate together with the unsubbed/raw video file. The softsubs usually have the extensions .srt, .ssa, etc. (E.g Offshot movie.srt)
To play the softsubs, you will need the unsubbed/raw video. Firstly, put both the subtitle file and the video file in the same folder. Rename both files so that they have the same name.
Offshot movie.aviOnce this is done. Just double click on the video file. Media player classic would automatically play the softsubs together with the video. If it doesn't work, it might be a codec problem. I can't warrant for that. But I use Storm Codec. It should support any type of video format you may want to play.
Q: "This video is no longer available" message for embedded videos and "This user/account has been suspended" when clicking links.
This means that youtube has probably suspended the user that uploaded the video. Similarly, email or drop a comment in the post itself and if I can find an alternative, I will replace it.
When POSTING COMMENTS, do select the "Other" option and enter your name. Although there is a column that requires you to fill in you Webpage URL, this is optional and not necessary. You may leave this column blank. This is because I noticed many of you posted your comments using the "Anonymous" option and left your name at the end instead. So do use the "Other" option unless you intend to remain anonymous. Other than that, thanks for your comments! They are totally appreciated.
That's all for now. Will add on later when I think of more or as questions pop up.
