Trojan Talk Rules

Forum Rules

  1. No profanity, racist or sexist comments. This includes using abbreviations
    or changing one letter of a swear word such that the word(s) are still interpreted
    by most as profane.
  2. No pornographic or obscene material of any kind. Any user posting
    pornographic pictures, or links to such material will be blacklisted. This
    includes materials within a signature file or avatar.
  3. No attacking other posters. If you feel the need to harass another
    poster, don't do it. What is considered attacking other posters?

    • Bringing up their name in posts that they did not start or were not
      involved in, just to get a reaction from them.
    • Consistently responding to their posts and responding with no merit
      other than to belittle them.
    • In short, making a poster a target.

  4. Do not post unsubstantiated rumors about players, coaches, etc. If
    you have a link to a news story, that is one thing. But if you have heard
    something 'from a friend of a friend,' this is not the website to post innuendo
    and rumor. Those posts will be removed.
  5. No repetitive negative posting. What makes a repetitive post? If
    you come to the forum and consistently say the exact same thing about the
    exact same topic day in and day out, that is being repetitive. Be sure to
    understand that no one is saying that you can not be critical. But this site
    will not be overrun by the same people coming on the site day after day saying
    the same negative things.
  6. No flaming: If a poster come onto the board with the intent only
    to flame, and continues to post nothing but flames or engages in no substantive
    discussion, the poster's posts will be deleted and the poster will be banned
    at the monitor's discretion.
  7. No attacks on players or coaches. Criticism is allowed, if the shoe fits. But that does NOT mean you have free range to bash or alienate a player or coach with your comments. If you disagree with how they played or the effort they put forward, please voice your opinion and state why you hold that opinion. If it's something you would not say to their faces, then don't post it.
  8. No attacking recruits: Just because a player may choose another
    school does not give you the right to blast them, in any circumstance. There
    will be zero tolerance on this issue.
  9. No posting of commercial offers, competing websites or spamming of the
    board will be permitted
    .: All threads will be deleted at the discretion
    of the board monitor. This includes references to "TOS" or anything along those lines.
  10. No posting or or distribution any material that infringes and/or violates
    any right of a third party or any law
    . Post will be deleted and member
    can be banned at the monitors discretion. This means no posting of premium
    information from other web sites.
  11. Do not give out your personal information on the message board or chat
    Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information
    (such as your email, phone number etc.) online --- for example, via message
    boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you
    don't know. You give out your personal information at your own risk. We are
    not responsible for any actions that occur if you give out your personal information.
  12. No phishing. Do not attempt to trick fellow posters into posting their email address by promising the inside scoop on a situation. These poor attempts at humor are very disruptive to the board.
  13. No dominating the conversation. Do not dominate the conversation, whether it is a single thread, or the overall conversation on the board for the day. A successful message board community involves give and take. If one poster contributes too much, to the point of disrupting the community, he or she may be banned.
  14. No signature files that are intended to make fun of other posters are allowed. Signature pictures should not exceed 500 pixels high or wide and should not exceed 200KB.
  15. Discussing board policies on this forum is not permitted. This includes problems with threads being deleted or moved. It also covers posters being banned or suggesting that they be banned. All of these issues should be emailed to the editor at [email protected] and not discussed on the boards.
  16. Removal of content is not debatable on the boards. If you have a problem with one of the content items on TrojanSports.com you can email editor Chris Swanson at [email protected] to share your concerns.
  17. Off-topic posts are permitted in moderation. Please mark all off-topic posts as OT.
  18. Absolutely no bullying will be permitted on the site. Constant ridiculing of posters by an individual or group will not be tolerated.
  19. Constant bickering between two users going back-and-forth constantly will not be allowed. Please take all feuds or quarrels with other users elsewhere.
  20. If you repeatedly rate threads 1 or 2 stars your rating/posting privileges will be revoked.

Posting is a privilege and not a right. Please remember that and the golden rule is a good one to follow: Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

To the vast majority of fans who read this site and already function within this rule set, thank you very much for your adult candor and responsible posting.
