It is our goal to make Depp Impact a safe, fun place to meet people who share a common interest and facilitate discovery of the work and humanity of Johnny Depp. To that end, it is necessary to have a few rules for participation:

~ Respect is paramount! Demonstrating any kind of disrespect toward Johnny or his family is not permitted. Flaming of other members will not be tolerated. Discussion from different point of views is encouraged but must be respectful toward the point of view and the person presenting it.

~Photos and videos taken by paparazzi are prohibited. Please see our Papps-Free Rules and Guidelines below.

~We welcome people of all ages. Please use discretion when posting comments that may be inappropriate for our youngest members and guests.

~Please use Standard English. Refrain from the use of “text-speak” such as IDK for I don’t know and plz for please.

~We invite Johnny’s admirers from all over the world to join us. Please show patience and kindness to persons who don’t speak English as their first language.

~Do not hotlink photos hosted on other sites or a photobucket account that is not your own. If you want to post a photo, download it to your photobucket account and post it from there.

~Give credit where credit is due. Please name the source from where the photo or information came. If you share information or photos found here elsewhere, please give Depp Impact credit.

~Do not use Depp Impact’s Forums to promote your own interests, such as soliciting votes to win a contest, advertising, or recruiting for another website. If you would like to promote something you feel is worthwhile, PM susan for approval. Unapproved solicitation may be deleted without warning.

~Please limit signatures to 200 x 600 pixels and avatars to 100 x 100 pixels in consideration of members who are using slower internet connections.

After navigating the murky and sometimes confusing waters of what is and isn't a "paparazzi photo" since July 9, 2009, it has become more clear as to what kind of photos Depp Impact will not allow. I've deleted the July 9, 2009 Papps-free post, replacing it with this:


Paparazzi-Free Rules and Guidelines

NOT ALLOWED

Photos and videos taken of Johnny when he is on his private time are not permitted. This includes photos/videos taken when he is in public, such as leaving a restaurant, shopping, in a park, walking down a street, entering a building, on a beach, in a car, etc.

Photos and videos taken of Johnny on private property, such as at a home, hotel, hotel balcony, etc., that are not for a professional photo shoot for publication (see below) are not allowed.

Photos and videos taken of filming in progress are not permitted unless they come through an official movie source, such as the film company or studio.

Links to any web page with any of the above are not allowed. Our Paparazzi-Free policy applies to ALL celebrities, not just Johnny. Please look at the entire page before posting a link to it.




ALLOWED

Professional photo shoots for publication in magazines are permitted. See Depp Impact's Photo Shoot photo gallery on the main site for examples.

Press photos and video taken at public, professional or promotional events, such as award ceremonies, premieres, press events, etc., are allowed.

Photos and videos taken at meet & greets outside a filming location or other promotional events, such as the taping of The David Letterman Show, are considered 'unofficial' public events by Depp Impact and are permitted.

Photos and videos taken by fans outside of what is normally allowed are permitted as long it is very apparent Johnny is aware the photo/video is being taken (Johnny with fans, or part of several taken at the same time with fans). A fan is someone who takes the photo/video as a memento or for personal use. A paparazzo takes a photo/video for the purpose of producing an income. Please be considerate of the owner's wishes concerning sharing personal photos and videos.






If you have any questions, please feel free to post them in the Information and Welcome Center forum, or PM me. We understand disallowed photos may inadvertently be posted on occasion. When this happens, the photo or link will be deleted and no other action will be taken against the poster, unless it becomes a habit or is clear to be purposeful.
