Erm, ya, I have a suggestion. I think that that link is kind of..um...how should I put this...not exactly..true? Lots of times people talk about ROMs here, and I think maybe that should be changed. I'm not trying to offend anyone, its just a suggestion......

It should be "where to get ROMs"...
Yeah, I agree. Honestly, I think its kinda funny. You can talk about them, but no links to them. It still doesn't quite make sense to me. :P

You're overlooking something in the statement that invalidates your rationale of thinking: "No Piracy!" This implies that discussions of Backups, WADs, or ROMs in a piracy supportive way is against the rules. Any "true" WiiBrewer knows that constructive and non-illegal discussion of the former is allowed. And you will find quite a bit of that on this forum I'm happy to say. (look at sites like GBAFail that have less than one constructive topic about these).

As far as ROMs go; Posting links to sites that offer ROMs for download is illegal and supportive of pirating them (the ROMs).
Hmm, okay. IMO, its still kinda weird. I've talked about backups (in the legal sense) and had my post edited out. Yet you just said that we're allowed to talk about them legally.

Anything very specificly detailing the process of running backups (run the app/cIOS named ...) will not be tolerated as such information could be used to the benefit of pirates.
Mmmk, I don't quite agree, but I'll abide the rules. :)
I'm not saying I support piracy, I'm just saying that link is slightly...misleading. Thank you for answering my questions and tolerating. :D

The Rules are a bit Sketchy!!! I think they need to be updated!!!

wiicrew made a post reporting the compatibility of a particular brand of external hard drive with USB loader apps. I think the rules could perhaps be slightly altered to make it clearer that this is a forbidden subject.

Well if you can't talk about backups, why would you be able to talk about backup loaders?

Perhaps just a note about anything to do with Wanikoko's cIOS. That isn't in the rules, and that's what I meant to say but failed, for some reason.

I understand what you're saying: That we should have a clear, ultimate list of apps that will not be tolerated here.

However, I don't agree with it at all.

Such a blatantly clear list would be nothing but a list of googling keywords for wanna-be warezers and cause many unneeded debates about our decision to or not support specific software concluding in: "We are teh power - you must obey teh power". People who can't even read the big bold red lettering on the main page most likely wouldn't even bother to look at the list.

Instead, I feel as though the following statement gives everyone a pretty clear picture of what's going on:
Any software which contains functionality that violates the principal philosophies which govern this forum will not be tolerated.

To understand these principal philosophies, please carefully read the forum rules: [forum.wiibrew.org]

Not to mention the list would need to be updated almost daily...
