Welcome to Oceans of Osyrus, a web community loosely based around the band Phish. A wide variety of topics are discussed, from music, art, and film, to culinary delights and travel. We also encourage up and coming musicians, photographers, and artists to use the sites resources to promote and inform our community about their creative works.

- Discussion of personal drug use
- Publicly looking for or publicly posting links to illegal products.
- Creation of user names that contain profanity or are in the form of a URL

Moderators may edit or delete any post or thread due to content that they deem offensive or disruptive to the community as whole. If you have a constructive comment, suggestion, or question on board policy, it may be posted in the "Feedback" forum. If you believe you have had a post or topic removed in error, please contact a member of the moderation team via your private messenger.
Infractions of any of the above rules can result in warnings and/or suspensions. Multiple infractions can result in permanent banning.
Please also use the Report Post feature (a button in each post called "Report!") if you find something on the site that violates one of the above rules. It helps bring attention to problems that might otherwise be missed or overlooked.
We are a very friendly and forgiving community. However, repeated breaking of the guidelines listed above will be dealt with appropriately by the moderation team. The decisions of the moderators are final, and open harassment, flaming, or public bashing of the administration of this site can result in warnings, suspensions, or permanent removal.
Finally, after all the serious mumbo jumbo.... have fun, discuss your favorite things in life, and enjoy the community, as they and you are the true architects of Osyrus.
Note on Signatures/Avatars/Display Names:
All signatures and avatars should be kept to a reasonable size. The board will automatically resize avatars that are too large. Signatures should be kept to a size no larger than 100px in height or 500px in width (about the size of your avatar). A member will be given twenty-four (24) hours in which to fix a signature that is found to excessively break this guideline, after which time the moderator will resize/remove the signature for the member.
