ADD TAGS FOR YOUR POSTS. IF ITS A WELL KNOWN VIDEO YOU FOUND PLEASE INCLUDE THE TAG OF THE VIDEO. "GIRL AND DOG" IS VERY VAGUE.

SCREENSHOTS
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.

If you're on a mobile device. Simply play a video and use the "screenshot" command on your phone. Depending on the phone, it's the power and volume down button at the same time. Some phones are different. So use what is for your device. One or two screenshots is fine. Just enough so users know what they're getting.

If you have questions, not sure on something. Please don't hesitate to contact an admin or moderator of this site.
New to the site? Use the General Discussion and User Chat for introductions.

Zooville Chat
As our chat is now operational, most of our rules are about the same as the site. No constant spamming. Try your best to get along if you don't agree with someone. But mostly, have fun!
Follow this link to see how to access it.
Zooville Chat

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) MEMBERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO IGNORE PMS. ASK BEFORE DMING WHEN IN ROOMS.
  • 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 your messages removed and account deactivated on the chat. Including the forum.
  • If you make your own room. Please follow the guidelines for posting media. THIS ALSO INCLUDES NO SCAT OR NECRO CHANNELS.

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 *01/07/20
Thanks for the add

Tourist
Could you add these rules for the chat about what's allowed in both the Media Dump rooms?

General chat, greeting people, asking for PM's is NOT allowed.

Responding to the media and requesting media is fine. As long as it's nothing lengthy.

There have been too many complaints about people talking in the media dumps, so much so that I requested becoming a mod to deal with that by kicking those people from the room.
