Babiato Rules

Hi Everyone ;)
Welcome to Babiato Family

:) EFFECTIVE DATE: July 11, 2021 :)

FORUM OVERVIEW:

This forum's primary purpose is to share stuff to needy people (especially for webmasters) in a convenient way, you can download various kinds of scripts, forum software, themes, plugins, and lots more. You can also discuss related issues or solve other's concerns on particular topics.​
So, if you have not registered yet, then register now and be the part of the family. ☕
HOW BABIATO IS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER SCRIPT-BASED FORUMS:
Though there's many websites/forums sharing scripts, add-ons, etc. Babiato stands out of them for the following reasons:​

  1. Everything free, no subscriptions.
  2. Almost all resources are entirely untouched/virus-free, which are the same distributed by developers (excluding the modified nulled ones shared by members to make the resources work properly/ad-free).
  3. Lots of community members always active in helping each other.
  4. Categorized sub-forums for different topics.
Now, to make a community running excellent there must be some rules & terms to be followed.


✍ FORUM TERMS AND RULE ✍

  1. Write only in English; thread structure should look good with appropriate picture (if require), description, and other necessary information. Don't make it look like as if a kindergarten kid has written it.
  2. If you wish to earn by sharing, then you can use only a single layer of ad (short-link generator type of ads), but remember there shouldn't be a second adlayer, and the link should be valid with actual working content behind of it. If you get caught doing over-smartness, your account will be banned permanently.
  3. Don't share any download links which give limited speed/require premium accounts to download. Recommended upload hosts are Google Drive, Upload.ee, Mega.nz or any other which doesn't restrict download speed.
  4. While sharing licenses/premium accounts/logins/purchase codes etc., use "... Insert - Spoiler" option, but make sure it doesn't violate any copyright issue.
  5. Don't behave with any one of the community members/moderator staff in the wrong manner, never take any abusive/insulting words; keep it clean.
  6. All content you submit, upload, or otherwise make available to the forums may be reviewed by staff members. All Content you submit or upload may be sent to third-party verification services (including, but not limited to, spam prevention services). Do not submit any Content that you consider to be private or confidential.
  7. You agree not to use the forums to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, religious, abusive, hateful, swear words, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains hacking, any cracks/patches (example: windows/MAC cracks, patches, etc and also includes things like Chrome Extensions.) of operating systems which violates Google copyright policy, pirated, adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws. You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct.
  8. We may remove or modify any Content submitted at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion. We may terminate your access to all or any part of the forums at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice.
  9. Don't ever spam; this forum is no-way a place to promote your blog/website/forum/social media either directly or indirectly. Keep the core contents of your post to this forum only (We may put a temporary ban or permanent ban depending on spamming level). This also includes the content of PMs you send to other members.
  10. Don't post anything which is/are 100% identical/same with some existing content. So before posting, it's better to SEARCH to see if the content is already available or not. This condition doesn't apply to current expired cookies, accounts, logins, or outdated stuff. 100% duplicate content-based posts will be removed.
  11. Don't post any links to any 3rd party websites, forums, blogs (warez, cracks/patches, pirated content-based), especially one which requires registration. This rule doesn't apply to the "site review" forum.
  12. Every forum section may/may not have additional rules; please look in sticky notice content or announcement.
  13. Keep yourself away from making Duplicate Accounts for taking extra benefits, joining a promotion/giveaway multiple times, self-promotion by increasing reputation meter (likes, positive reviews on own products/threads/services, me-to-me discussion to increase post counts, etc.). If we find any, then the secondary or optional accounts may get banned with a warning alert to the primary account holder. This also applies to GIVEAWAY THREAD OWNERS/HOLDERS They must limit giveaways only to those who have been a member of Babiato for at least 30 days by using the relevant hide tags to reduce spamming or chances of duplicate account that users makes during such giveaways. Giveaway content should be included in the hide tags. PM's are NOT an acceptable way to distribute giveaway content. In addition (as of April 5th 2021) only those who have been members of Babiato for at least 30 days may start a giveaway thread.
  14. Upon violation of rules, a member will be warned first with 5 points; if the member reaches 10 points (2 times), the member's account will be permanently banned. This term (2 times) may not apply to those members who joined the forum very recently (few mins/hours ago, or it's their first post starting with spamming, shits, promotion, any above violation). In such cases, the members may get permanent BAN instantly.
  15. Posting/Sharing of affiliate link/referral link will be considered only if the AFF/REF. ID is required to gain the offer/product/service (ex: only affiliate link will give less/discounted price to the buyer than the regular rate, or only that referral link is required to join a website/developer's site/avail service). MEANWHILE, MAKE SURE YOUR ID IS VALUABLE FOR THE REFERRED PERSON & SHOULD ACT DIFFERENTLY THAN A NORMAL PROCESS. POINT TO NOTE THAT AFFILIATE/REFERRAL LINK SHOULDN'T BE USED/INCLUDED WITH ANY AD-SKIP URL SHORTENER. Note that a NON-PAYOUT based link shortener (ex: https://bitly.com/, etc.) can be used to reduce ONLY the link length and NOT for ANOTHER PURPOSE.
    To make it simple to understand, your affiliate link should be a part of an affiliate program that belongs to the target service website and not a double or triple redirect from an ads link generator that contain the target service url. Disguised short url that in many cases are harmful for the end user are prohibited. Only real affiliate links that belong to real affiliate program on the target service are permitted.
    NOW! To use affiliate links, every member should be eligible with the following "Give back to the community first" conditions (This applies to new threads added since August 12th 2021):
    1. THE USER MUST BE MINIMUM 3 MONTHS OLD
    2. THE USER MUST HAVE MINIMUM 100 REACTION SCORE (NOTE: THE REACTIONS MUST BE GENUINE, NOT GENERATED BY SPAMMING / MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS / BEGGING FOR REACTIONS.
    3. LEAST BUT NOT LAST, THE USER SHOULD NOT HAVE MORE THAN 5 WARNING SCORE.
  16. Signatures/Profile: If you do not meet the requirements for selling in the marketplace (see marketplace rule 15 below), you may not use your signature to promote services/items you sell on external sites/forums etc (This also applies to the website link section on your profile). If breach of this rule is seen, your signature will be edited by a member of staff. Even if you are eligible, you're not allowed to make the signature promotional TEXT / BANNER size too big . . . It should no way disturb the eye-sight view.
  17. We might not love babysitting or so called spoon-feeding nerds or lazy butts most of the time. So before making a silly lazy request (which already exists on Babiato) blindly please move your wiener a little aside and search for the stuff first (NOTE: Before making a valid request please check REQUEST STRUCTURE RULE HERE, then post request in this REQUEST SUB-FORUM), else your request thread might get locked (with or without warning) as well as warning or suspension of user account (based on circumstances of stupidity or so called dumbness) .
  18. Starting a thread of content from a GPL site (free or paid) (in name of giveaway or whatever shitty excuses) is strictly not allowed. Firstly these sites can't be trusted (code might be tampered) and secondly most of the resource stuff they sell is stolen from Babiato anyway (it has been proved many times by forum staffs). Hence, upon violating this strict rule the thread will be closed with/without mentioning the reason (user will be warned in such case) and to the extreme point the thread owner's account might get banned instantly without any notice or warning without any change of getting unbanned in future.
  19. Regarding REVIEW Threads: We staff team has observed that many people are just taking advantages of the "Review section" for getting backlinks/clicks/views/sells etc regardless having any reputation/contribution towards Babiato or not. Even we have seen many people are creating Reviews thread instantly just after joining (such tactics are completely worthless spam arrived from some random cheap minds). Hence, here are following rules before creating a review thread, violation of the following rules may lead your thread to be closed instantly, get a negative warning point, or even get banned (due to potentially spam-alike circumstances):
    1. The user account must be minimum of 48 hours old before creating a review thread.
    2. To make things very friendly family environment, the user must introduce himself properly (with at least minimum basic intro. information rather that just "Hi / Hello people / Hello forum / Love all " etc spam type of very short contents) in the "Introductions" section to get some warm welcome wishes from our forum members and to get to know each other at same time , (who knows you may get your play partners :p:LOL::ROFLMAO:,kidding ! ).
    3. Introduction will certainly increase your "Messages" count, so your profile needs to have atleast 10 "Messages" count before making REVIEW thread.
    4. Please make your REVIEW thread clear with all the basic requirement details: ex:
      • domain name
      • website duration
      • website niche type (optional: including some non-sensitive information about the website (example: website hosting company / server specification / theme or design name/ which plugins have been used etc ).
      • Type of feedbacks your are expecting from members (design / speed / overall performance / traffic etc).
    5. The thread title should be "Review : website address" (ex: Review: www.babia.to") or "Please review my website". Means, keep the title clean, do not over style it so that it looks like more spammy title rather than attractive classy one.
    6. Any websites added for a review that contain inappropriate content will be removed immediately at our discretion.
  20. REGARDING MAKING REQUEST: We have seen many old users (specially inactive due to only making requests/leech purpose) as well as new members (recently/just joined without any other activity on any other thread) creating "REQUEST THREAD/POST" asking for free stuffs, and then mostly disappears till making another request in near future regardless of any participation in any thread or even a little introduction or any other contribution/sharing. Such junks are increasing rapidly day by day. So make things go smoother in line and to make the environment clean & worthy for actual contributors before making any request thread the following rules should be followed (Note: violation of any following rules may cause warning to your profile / thread will be locked with or without mentioning reason (as obvious you've checked the "I agree to the terms and privacy policy." checkbox while joining the forum ;)) /your account may get banned based on circumstances.
    1. Before making any "Request Thread" you must introduce yourself in the "Introductions sub-forum".
    2. Your profile should be at least 2 hours old (from time of account registration), it's mandatory not to just signup and then in next minute create a introduction thread and then on next minute create a Request thread. So be careful on this.
    3. The User's profile post statistics page should not consist of more than 2 REQUEST THREAD sequentially, be good and act generous by taking times in participating in other running threads, appreciating the contributors, welcoming new members etc. We have seen many user's profile only contains Request posts / Please update this / Please share this / New version released ! please someone . . . etc etc etc (n) If we find such profile making only sequential requests (more than 2 sequentially) then that account would be considered as "Leeching rats" and such accounts may get warning / temporary locked or even permanently BANNED based on circumstances.
    4. While making a REQUEST THREAD Please make it clean and easy to understand for everyone with official source link / reference link as well as appropriate title from what forum member's can have clear understanding what you are asking for actually.
    5. Before making any REQUEST, please "SEARCH FOR ON FORUM" first, only if it doesn't exist = then create Request thread on it . As per the above RULE #17 we don't comply babysitting lazy nerds, so your legendary laziness might bring more trouble for you as mentioned on that Rule #17 .
    6. Don't even think of making duplicate account For taking ultra benefit of making request thread / post . . We may apply "NO MERCY" in such cases . Instant BAN !!
  21. [REGARDING CREATING HAVOC / RESOURCE ABUSE]It has been observed since a long time that:
    1. Many arrogant dipshits (those who are actually bad) just appears from no-where and comments / posts / reviews a resource as "Virus / Malware / Trojan" without any further valid proof, and upon asking for proof they no more reply [Check this one for example], meanwhile their main purpose is to abuse the resource or the resource distributor/nuller, nothing else.
    2. Many dickheads, sorry I mean stupid brainless people who doesn't have basic understanding of the following:
      1. Many VirusTotal engine shows false-positive alert when the engine detects some encrypted code (mostly by developers, unless some third-party morons integrate it), if the resource distributor/nuller is someone who can be solely Trusted and he/she claims if to be "SAFE / Own Purchased" then please ignore such false-positive alert from VirusTotal as those alert can be safely ignored.
      2. Many theme/plugin developers intentionally integrate encrypted code to their resource just to secure/protect their code. It's completely fine and should be ignored, hence please don't worry about those developer-made encrypted code by considering them as virus, meanwhile DO NOT CREATE UNNECESSARY HAVOC ANY HOW AS WELL.
    3. Hence, if it has been told earlier by such ethic uploaders to ignore false-positive warning (only caused by those developer-made encryption) then please ignore, If you don't show any valid proof (non-developer based encryption/third-party harmful codes) then please do not create unnecessary meaningless posts. If you're that big jerk and still feel afraid again & again for such things then please support the main developers and purchase those required resources officially, Cause even after things being clarified/mentioned repeated times to be as SAFE and still being dumbass you act dumb, talk dumb, create dumb posts/threads then you may get warning as well as install account Ban (based on circumstances). So better watch your steps carefully before claiming any resource as false-positive Virus.
  22. Sharing/selling or any form of re-distribution of database leak / leaked backup data/dump of website or forum community is no way allowed, let's be honest to each other. Such kind of leaked offline website/forum backup data (which are possibly caused by hacking or fraud act by the forum/website staff for blackmail purpose) may contain various kind of sensitive data's (login credentials, credit card numbers etc.) This also applies to any form of "cracked" login details for any sort of accounts.
    Beside selling/sharing/re-distribution any kind of script/service/any datatype which is used for fraudulent activities (ex: Ponzi scheme/script) are strictly prohibited. Violating the rule or linking with such activity may cause your account to be suspended based on circumstances with or without any warning.
  23. It has been observed that many users are asking/requiring other member's email address/contact info for their offer/giveaway/sell etc. purpose on their respective threads. Since such tactics may cause email/contact details collection act for marketing/spamming purpose, such acts are hereby now forbidden here. No user should ask or share their contact details for such purposes publicly (except for payment links/info or similar details for different valid purposes which are mandatory for respective thread types). Violation of this act would lead to thread locking with warning issued to the thread owner. The thread owner may request to unlock the thread by confirming his availability with forum staff team to change the thread contents without causing unnecessary spamming possibilities.
  24. Sharing access to premium type accounts (Netflix, Envato Elements etc) by way of using Cookies is forbidden. The usually last at most a day or 2 and ends up with lots of posts complaining they don't work anymore. Selling of NETFLIX accounts are prohibited, so no such threads will be entertain.
  25. If a member wishes to limit who downloads their resources they may password protect their resource and set a requirement that a user must meet before being able to see the password. The requirement must be set using the hide content function and can be limited by number of days the user has been a member or number of resources a user has shared. You may not set the requirement to be more than...
    Number of Resources - 3
    Days Been a Member - 30
    You must include the password (hidden as per above) in both the Resource Details page and the first post in the thread. You may not request that users must PM you for the password.
    And just a reminder that anything you submit as a resource must have been purchased by yourself and proof of this must be shown to @Babak on request. Additionally you are not allowed to charge members for resources.
  26. All resources listed in a thread must be freely available to all members, you are not permitted to pick and choose within that thread who gets the resource (unless it is restricted as mentioned in rule #25 or you are using hide tags for giveaways within the thread ), neither should any resource be sent through the use of pm/dm or any other private message. If you have put restrictions on your resource, then any member who doesn't meet the set requirements and tries to bypass them by asking you personally should be reported immediately to any Babiato staff member, who will then deal with that member as they see fit and potentially give them a warning or a ban. Any thread owner who decides to bypass their own set restrictions and give out restricted content to unqualified members, will themselves be dealt with accordingly and could have any privileges removed, warned or banned as well.
  27. XenForo support policy must be maintained only for users seeking for help related to XenForo.
  28. Anyone found and proven to be sharing Babiato Resources outwith Babiato will be issued warning points or given a permanent ban.

:CLARIFICATION OF MARKETPLACE "RULE NO: 4" LICENSED PRODUCT POLICY:

LET'S HAVE AN EXAMPLE:

THEMEFOREST, CODECANYON LICENSE POLICY
: There are many products (ex: Newspaper theme, BeTheme, plugins etc)
  • works partially without license,
  • some completely doesn't work without license,
  • even some 100% works without license (in those cases the license only supports to give auto-update feature) . . .
OTHER THIRD-PARTY DEVELOPER SITES: Same thing for other developer sites (except those themeforest,codecanyon,envato market) where the product
  • works partially without license,
  • works nothing without a license,
  • works fully 100% without a license. . .
WHAT BABIATO RULES STANDS FOR:
  • If you are selling/group-boy a product, make sure the item works fully without a license, or it can be fully workable with a little (1 - 2 lines of code changes) changes,
  • REASON: Whoever will purchase the product (which requires license to make the product work fully) deserves to get the product license key, you can't deny it.
  • BUT, What if some over-smart/traitor tends to RE-SELL the same license to other people, or LEAK the license to somewhere else, or report the developer/author about license code breaching.
  • THEN, as per most of the developer's site rules: the account holder's account/the license will be banned/black-listed. Hence, for one/multiple dickhead moron every other genuine buyer will have to regret of losing money. You can neither track the leaker, nor you can REFUND the whole amount to every buyer by instant time . . .
WE / I HAD RECEIVED SUCH KIND OF REPORTS OF LICENSE BREACHING EARLIER, HENCE THOSE RULES WERE WRITTEN , , ,

SO,
IF YOUR GROUP BUY ITEM COMPLIES WITH THE ABOVE MENTIONED CONDITIONS (TO WORK WITHOUT LICENSE ACTIVATION/WORK FULLY WITH LITTLE 1-2 LINES OF CODE CHANGES) WITH BUYER'S ACCEPTANCE OF NOT GETTING THE LICENSE KEY IN HAND AND INSTEAD 1-2 LINES OF CODE CHANGES REQUIRES TO MAKE THE PRODUCT WORK FULLY. . .

THEN YOU/ANYONE ARE FREE TO START THEIR GROUP-BUT/SELLING THREAD . . . .
 
New general rule 16 added...

Signatures: If you do not meet the requirements for selling in the marketplace (see marketplace rule 15 below) you may not use your signature to promote services/items you sell on an external site. Where a breach of this rule is seen your signature will be edited by a member of staff.
 
MARKETPLACE TERMS AND RULES [BUY/SELL]
Rule 15 Updated


  1. THE USER MUST BE MINIMUM 1 MONTH/30 DAYS OLD.
  2. THE USER MUST HAVE MINIMUM 40 REACTION SCORE (NOTE: THE REACTIONS MUST BE GENUINE, NOT GENERATED BY SPAMMING / MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS / BEGGING FOR REACTIONS.
