This is posted elsewhere, but it seems a reminder is necessary, so I am posting this to make it perfectly clear and to hopefully avoid us having to start issuing bans.
2b. With regard to "leaked" material ... [from] Dream Theater and side-projects by the members of Dream Theater, you may not discuss the leaked material whatsoever.
Any discussion of a leak, including discussion of the songs themselves, will be met with an immediate ban until at least release date, if not longer.
In short, DO NOT POST ANYTHING FROM A DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS unless it is a link to an official source (i.e. DT's or Roadrunner's official sites, YouTube pages, etc.
--no other sources are acceptable until further notice) that has been allowed by the band and/or the label. (live performances are fine) If you aren't sure whether it is okay to post a link to something, PM a mod or admin and ask first rather than risking the ban.
*Note: This includes retail sites. In short, again, if you aren't sure if it is okay to post, or if you aren't clear on the rule, don't post until you ask a mod/admin. If you don't follow these instructions, you will probably be banned.
EDIT: And sorry for adding yet another sticky. I know some people hate having too many for some reason. But around album release time, it is generally unavoidable.
