Introduction and House Rules
« on: January 05, 2020, 10:58:37 PM »
Welcome to the Gossipfarms - the gossip and drama forum currently under development. Before we go any further, let me explain a little bit about Onionfarms as well as the house rules so it is an enjoyable experience for everybody.

Gossipfarms is a forum that covers current news stories, as well as gossip and drama concerning celebrities and political affairs of countries and politicians. Our purpose is to provide a relaxed, entertaining and informative forum that people will want to come back to over and over again. If you have any question, please contact us at

1. The administrator reserves the right to make changes at any time with or without notice that he considers to be in the best interests of the forum.

2. Don't post or link to any content that is illegal under United States law.

3. Keep it civil. Refrain from personal attacks against other members. Debating, agreeing/disagreeing about the topics at hand is okay. Attacking each other personally is not. No trolling or mobbing other members. If you have a dispute with someone talk to them privately.

4. If you come from another forum and you want a place to hang your hat and enjoy the forums like anyone else that's fine. But please respect the privacy of the other members who post here. Whatever drama you have on another forum let it stay on that forum. Do not link lolcow threads from other forums here unless you have permission from the Administrator.

Advice on privacy:
  • Keep your personal problems personal. Don't post them on the forum (powerleveling).
  • Do not use the same email address or username you use on other forums

5. Policies on Doxxing:
Official dox such as an official fan club address or an official contact address on an official website or in a fan magazine is fine. Personal dox such as looking up their home address or phone number is off limits.

6. Regarding social media. You may post material that is specifically intended for the general public such as public Facebook pages, tweets, Tumblr posts and so forth. Gossip from fan sites such as is also okay.

7. Starting threads on people of interest. Because Onionfarms is a gossip forum concerning celebrities only people of interest with a Celebrity Tier level of 4 or 5 may have threads freely started on them. Threads on people with a Celebrity Tier level of 3 will be at the administrator's discretion. Threads are not allowed on people with a Celebrity Tier level of 2 or 1.

Celebrity Tier Level
Tier 1: Private Figure: A private figure with a limited following on social media. No Wikipedia article, no mention on news media except by accident. No verification as a prominent public figure on social media.
Tier 2: Moderate Public Figure: A somewhat public figure with a blog though not mentioned in the news media. No article on the Wikipedia and not verified on social media as a prominent public figure.

Tier 3: Strong Public figure: A well know public figure with a blog and an active following on social media. May be mentioned on the Wikipedia but there is no separate biography on the individual. May be mentioned in news media. Not verified on social media as prominent public figures.

Tier 4: De facto Celebrity: A prominent public figure with an active following on social media.  Article in Wikipedia. Even though these people are not verified on social media, their public figure status is equivalent to celebrities who are mentioned in news media

Tier 5: Verified Celebrity: A prominent public figure with an active following on social media. Article in Wikipedia. Verified as prominent public figures on social media.
