This message board is intended to be a fun place to talk about SEC sports. To keep out trouble makers and ensure the board's quality for our members we have to strictly enforce the following rules. Every member is encouraged to read them. Claiming to not know the rules will not help you if you are determined to break the rules. For a lengthier description or explanation of a rule click on the link.
2) No Spamming
No Personal Attacks! A personal attack, as defined by SECFanatics.com,
is a direct and malicious insult of another poster. While posters will be
allowed to criticize a post or make an offhand commentary on a poster in
response to a post, it is prohibited for a poster to maliciously attack another
poster. This rule is punishable by warnings, temporary banning or permanent
banning depending on severity and quantity of violations of this rule.
Conversely, if you bait someone into personally attacking you, especially after
a mod or admin has called for an end to it, this equally is a violation of the
personal attack. Baiting will not be tolerated.
We absolutely do not condone the spamming of other members. You may not use
your account here to spam other members, either via e-mail, private messages, or
any other messaging client. We are very strict about this rule and you may or
may not receive a warning before being banned if you break this rule.
Spamming from outside sources should be reported to a Moderator or Administrator
and will be removed from the forum as quickly as possible and the sender
prohibited from posting. Additionally, you may not use your signature file
to spam the board and advertise your own website. We have had problems in
the past with posters posting just for the purpose of getting the link to their
website seen. It will be at the discretion of the admins, mods, and owner
whether or not you are spamming the board with your links. If you receive
a warning and continue to spam the board with links to your own site you will be
The board allows posters to be assigned reputation. The intent of "Rep" is to give posters "props" when they make an exceptional post which another user feels is enlightening, informative, hilarious, etc. You should not assign someone Rep for an ordinary post. You should not assign someone REP simply because they agree with you. You should assign Rep when Rep is due. For example, if someone points out something you had never thought of and it really makes you think - Rep them. Conversely, if you post something like "Kentucky will beat Louisville by ten.", and somebody posts and agrees with you, do not rep them for that.
The same is true for Negative Rep. Do not give Negative Rep to someone just because they disagree with you. Assign Negative Rep sparingly, and only if you think someone's post is misinformed, irresponsible, etc. Your username will automatically be signed to both Positive and Negative Rep you give someone. So remember that, when you are considering giving Negative Rep to someone.
We will not tolerate threads designed to elevate Rep and they will be removed immediately. We also will not tolerate groups of people constantly "repping" each other for no good reason to collectively build up each other's Rep.
We request that you stay on topic in threads. It is ok to drift a bit here and there but please revert back to the original topic of the thread. Remember, the General Chat forums are pretty much anything goes - so take your conversations into those forums. The Pub is for more general chatting and fun things. The Think Tank is geared more toward current events, religious topics, "moral issues". While wandering occurs in those forums and is a bit more allowable, if you are requested to return to the topic of the thread, please do so promptly."
Keep threads in the appropriate forums.
This board is open to anyone and everyone - therefore, posting of obscene images, subverting the forum censors, and/or blatantly ignoring the forum rules will not be tolerated."
Team boards are safe havens and should be treated as such. While all
fans are free to interact on any team forum, talking smack to fans of a team on
their team's forum is prohibited. Team forums are a safe haven from smack talk
towards coaches, players, teams or members of the forum that represent the
school whose team forum it is. For example, a Florida or Alabama fan cannot go
to the Tennessee forum to take shots at Fulmer but can go there to talk about a
game without smack talk. Breaking this rule is punishable by warnings and
temporary or permanent bans depending on severity and quantity of the
Do not make public posts questioning or commenting on these posting guidelines or any of the enforcement actions taken by mods and admins. If you have legitimate questions or disagreements with how the rules are being enforced then please do so by contacting mods and admins directly by private message. We will be happy to answer all your questions and explain everything on a one-to-one basis. This is the only acceptable way to deal with these matters."
"The enforced signature size limit is a maximum of approximately 35 lines of text or images which comprise a maximum of 350 x 700 pixels. This limitation is the TOTAL size for ALL text and images in a multi-image signature. Please no scantily clad women or otherwise inappropriate images or you signature will be removed."
5) Account Rules (back
If a user repeatedly breaks the rules or engages in actions unsuitable for
the board the user may be banned. A banning committee has been formed and
consists of a few mods, supermods, and admins. When someone commits an
offense deemed potentially worthy of a ban, that user will be temporarily banned
while the banning committee decides whether or not the user should be banned and
how long that user will be banned. A PM will be sent to that user letting
the user know a ban discussion is taking place. The decision process will be 48
hours. During that time the banning committee will review the situation.
They will then decide among themselves whether or not to ban the user and if so,
for how long. The majority vote will decide the outcome. In the
event of a tie, the mods votes will be removed. If there is still a tie,
the supermods votes will be removed. If there is still a tie, the site's
owner will make the final decision.
We value the privacy of our members. We will not spam you, and we will not sell your information to advertisers.
