WELCOME to TDF!
The worlds definitive resource on love dolls and erotic dolls for adults since 2001.

As a new member there are a few things you should know about.

Your first five posts need to be approved by staff. Posts need to be meaningful for them to be approved. Posts of a few words, and posts with just emoticons will not be approved. There are many threads of varying subjects, and threads with pictures worthy of a compliment. Once five posts are approved, newbie restrictions will be released and you will be able to private message, upload pictures and make a For Sale post.

You should allow some time for your post to be approved, to avoid creating duplicate posts. Our staff are from around the world, so one of us is usually able to get your post approved within a reasonable time period. You will receive an email notification when your post is approved.

In the mean time, if you have problems, questions, need assistance, you can contact TDF Management by email: support@dollforum.com

A few things to consider for specific kind of posts:
-Posts made in an existing Sales thread MUST show interest in buying the item for sale. When posting a For Sale thread (only available after newbie restrictions are lifted), use this TEMPLATE. Please read the detailed SALES Rules before posting in the Sales On TDF section.
-Posts made about competing brands must be made in the Dolls in General section.

You may edit your posts within 24hrs (while being a newbie an edited post has to be approved again). If you want to change your posts after 24hrs, please contact a member of staff.

As this is a moderated forum, here is a brief summery of the RULES of CONDUCT.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
1.Pornography is not encouraged and photos of explicit sex with or without a doll are not allowed. Also anything regarding underage children or dolls appearing to be underage is strictly forbidden.
2.Stay legal! If the law doesn't allow it, we don't either!
3.No demeaning or derogatory statements targeting members, management, or the forum in general.
4.The "Open Forum" is for non-doll topics, however, in an effort to reduce friction between members, TDF does not allow political or religious discussions.
5.Members who establish a pattern of disruptive posting, evidenced to be bashing, or trolling our community will be subject to suspension or termination at the discretion of management.
6.Wherever possible, members should attempt to resolve grievances with other members and/or forum management through private messages.
7.No spamming, cross posting, or links requiring registration in order to enter or display the link. There is a zero-tolerance policy against spam. If you want to become a listed vendor, please contact TDF Management at support@dollforum.com.
8.No uninvited sexually oriented, offensive or repeated harassing in public posts and/or private messages to any forum member.
9.No use of automated download programs (bots, web harvesters, etc).
10.Do not post unsupported claims regarding people or products.
11.Manufacturers, their affiliates and vendors are prohibited from commenting in other manufacturer/vendor forums and threads started by other manufacturers/vendors.
12.Those wishing to discuss or compare competing doll brands should do so in the "Dolls In General" forum and not that of a specific manufacturer/vendor used in the comparison.

The following is for new members that may not have been lurking the site before joining:
TDF is a very large resource and can be overwhelming at first. The TDF Index Page contains links to all areas of TDF. Take some time to read down the list to familiarize yourself with what's available.
All listed love doll manufacturers and vendors at TDF are verified. Don't be scammed, buy from a trustworthy vendor.
As a new member, we encourage you to make your first post in the Member Introductions section. And, if you already have a doll, please submit it to the Doll Matrix!
Also, don't forget to visit our monthly ezine CoverDoll.

We strive to make this a safe and enjoyable place for all people interested in love dolls.
Again, a big welcome!
Staff, Management and Owners of TDF
