i asked somewhere here before, is posting gay beast and beast forum vids ok, i have saved vids , since 2001,
i back up my computer , have hard drives everywhere, finding some files take time, i only save male with female animals, no dogs
That's a good question. In my opinion it should be allowed as both sites are now dead, but there might be other issues at play, so let me make sure and I'll post the final decision.

Go ahead and post them at your leisure. Do make sure they are from BF or Gay Beast, and not videos posted there against copyright. For instance, videos posted there that have watermarks or simply made by a commercial content maker as lots of material posted there was already stolen from commercial sites.

Zooville Chat (LINK NOT ACTIVE, RETURN LATER)

New rules for chat:
  • Try to leave controversial topics alone. Usually politics, etc. We're not saying its forbidden. If an agreement does not go well. Let it be.
  • No stalking members.
  • As we will say on the forums, it goes the same on the chat. If a member does not want unsolicited pms. End the discussion.
  • Ask to PM a user. (Pms can be rejected. As it's hard coded in the server. A user can accept or reject)
  • Users can ignore other users. Simply clicking on their name and clicking "ignore"
  • Media posted in the media room is subject to removal if it is deemed to go against our guidelines. (See above our forum rules)
  • Posting of CP content will have you banned from channels on the chat. As well as possibly the forum.


Moderators of the chat are the same as ZV. Our newest mod for the chat itself is flukeofnature and katie

Trouble Watching Videos?
Videos over 250Mb uploaded to Zooville.org need to be split with HJ-Split. You can tell a video has been split if it end with a three number suffix such as .001, .002, ect. Once the video has been reassembled, you'll need the appropriate video and audio codecs in order to play it. Many devices and players (such as QuickTime) do not contain a large variety codecs by default. If your having trouble playing videos, Zooville.org recommends you download and attempt to play them with VLC Media Player.


THESE RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
REVISED *10/3/2019
Sounds fair enough. I will do my best to comply.

Sorry, but there really shouldn't be a ban just for species. Now there's again the problem for solo, mating, fish and bird art. Off course inserting fish is more of a fringe fetish and fkn chicken is just animal mistreatment. But both are already banned by rule 3.0.
So I don't really get it. By the way 90% of all mammals should also be banned by this rule, like mice, rabbits, small dogs and cats and so on.

"No fish or poultry content."
Thats it then. I think we can count Ostriches and Emus as poultry, right?
Obviously that is the exception to the rule, an male ostrich is like my arm in size, so by all means post your ostrich stuff.

I'm going to demonstrate why that's a poor way to go about it.

How about Ducks? Could a Duck also be an exception?

Citizen of Zooville
I've had completely happy harmless sex with a Mallard Drake many times. In fact, the Duck initiated it every time. And amazingly, that particular breed of Duck has a longer penis than you do.

So your exception of non harmful sex with birds possessing a large penis doesn't apply equally.

BTW, that happened long before the invention of digital media so there's no chance that I could post it anyway.

Easy to say without providing proof unlike der zoomer who has provided lots of it. Exceptions are rare.

You missed the point. The keyword is "drake". Sex with a male Mallard consists of him dancing and talking followed him jumping on top of me and attempting to shoot his corkscrew penis into any available orifice. Pretty safe for the Duck. Sex with many of the listed prohibited animal can easily be just like that.

Think carefully before answering this question: How does this policy differ from breed specific legislation IRL?

Your over-thinking it. Ostrich and emu content provided over the past months are the exception.

I trying to save you future headaches. Remember that I ran the original and largest tracker for years. I had staff to sort content and got more experience with these questions than I ever wanted.

Separate rules and guidelines. Guidelines are flexible, rules are not. No pain or harm is a rule. Penetrated dogs should be larger than 50 lbs is a guideline.

Once you start declaring special dispensations for specific individuals, you will get bogged down in requests for reviews. You edited the rules and incidentally made my Duck legal and other Duck content that involved penetration and death. This is key. Edit the rules, yes, but do so carefully and start by rationalizing what you have.

Well if there is more ostrich zoos out there, by all means bog me down! Otherwise, the rule is fine, it's never been an issue.

Removing EXIF data.
This is data that is used in photos and videos to detail specifications, such as the camera that was used, GPS (If enabled/equipped), serial number of the device used, etc.
It's easy to remove EXIF data by using the right software.

Making your own content:
  • Of course, using common sense is the main thing here. Be sure easily identifiable items are not seen, or mistakenly in view.
  • It's advised to try not to have your face in any shot, as well as animals.
  • Use usernames that are not easily identifiable. In other words, don't use the same username as you do elsewhere if you don't want to be discovered.
  • Same goes for emails. No one would be able to see your email on this site, besides admins.
  • We suggest members do not upload pictures of yourself or other people.

Please make screenshots of content that you upload. If using VLC. Use the "snapshot" feature. How to use: Play a video through VLC. Then on the top navbar of the program, click on "Video" then "Take Snapshot" The photo will be in your "Pictures" folder. You can take as many as you want for the video.

New rules for chat:
  • Try to leave controversial topics alone. Usually politics, etc. We're not saying its forbidden. If an agreement does not go well. Let it be.
  • No stalking members.
  • As we will say on the forums, it goes the same on the chat. If a member does not want unsolicited pms. End the discussion.
  • Ask to PM a user. (Pms can be rejected. As it's hard coded in the server. A user can accept or reject)
  • Users can ignore other users. Simply clicking on their name and clicking "ignore"
  • Media posted in the media room is subject to removal if it is deemed to go against our guidelines. (See above our forum rules)
  • Posting of CP content will have you banned from channels on the chat. As well as possibly the forum.

Trouble Watching Videos?
Videos over 250Mb uploaded to Zooville.org need to be split with HJ-Split. You can tell a video has been split if it end with a three number suffix such as .001, .002, ect. Once the video has been reassembled, you'll need the appropriate video and audio codecs in order to play it. Many devices and players (such as QuickTime) do not contain a large variety codecs by default. If your having trouble playing videos, Zooville.org recommends you download and attempt to play them with VLC Media Player.


THESE RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
REVISED *10/5/2019
I can live with it.
