Breaking these guidelines may lead to a blacklist/ban or global ban (that means you cannot read posts on other 247Sports sites too). Length of penalty may be anywhere from 5 minutes to eternity.
1. No offensive language or images (swear words/cuss words, sexist, racist, religious) - including variations of offensive language with different spellings or letters omitted, etc.
2. No personal attacks/name-calling of anyone - coaches, players, employees, fellow posters, recruits, etc. If there is a poster or posters you find annoying or don't want to read, use the ignore function.
3. No posting of copyrighted material from this network or any other entity
4. No pornographic or obscene photos in avatars, posts, or signature files. Also, please don't link to this type of material or suggest to others where to find such material
5. No posting of any type of content that could be libelous
6. Don't spam the board
7. Don’t use the board to communicate with one or just a few select users - that is what private messaging is for.
8. No commercial offers or solicitation of business or Internet traffic.
9. No posting of information that is fabricated or known to be false
10. No "trolling" and/or being a disruptive force on the boards
11. No posting threads of a highly sexual nature.
12. We do not know why you got banned on a team site. Handle your banning with the site you were banned on.
13. No asking for help, or review of your site, your buddy's highlight tape or anything that may be conceived as promotion to our users. Some flexibility will be allowed to actual members of the community who do more than just ask for help or promote their side projects.
14. No bad-mouthing or taunting 247Sports team site staff. PM, email or post on the site you are concerned with. We don't want to know about the fun or craziness going on with a team site or writer and won't let it carry over to the national boards. Have that kind of "fun" on your team site please.
Violating any of these rules could lead to a post and/or entire thread being edited or deleted. It could also lead to the user being blacklisted or banned.
Addendum for humor: Pics (Clean ones that don't violate above rules) or it did not happen.
