*** TSU Guidelines ***
Welcome to The Sports Universe
Please show respect for your fellow board member. There is no need to verbally attack or have hostility towards other members, regardless what their opinion is. Please make sure that any post that you share with the board is relevant to the actual forum and topic that you're posting in. SPAMMING, FLOODING, or anything else that is considered offensive (i.e. pornography, etc.) will not be tolerated on this board and will be dealt with accordingly. This board was created for people to share their opinions, give educated responses, and most of all, HAVE FUN!!
I want to make these rules perfectly clear! You are not allowed to advertise your own or any other website, until you have made 10 quality (non-spam) posts. That means you must have 10 posts that are related to topics you are posting in and they can't be quick 1-3 word posts. EXPRESS YOURSELF!! The only place to advertise is in your signature. ABSOLUTELY, NO PM ADVERTISING!!! If these rules are violated, you will be warned for the first 2 offenses and then banned for the 3rd and final offense. Also, after the 1st offense, your posts will be monitored by the admin indefinitely. This is a requirement, in order to keep members active. I don't think it is too much to ask to post 10 times. If you look around this site, you will see that there is a lot of topics to discuss. I just don't want people to come here to advertise their site and/or another one and then disappear. PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES!!!
Once you reach 20 quality (non-spam) posts and you have your own board (you must be an admin), you can affiliate with TSU. All you have to do is PM (or e-mail) me and we will talk. This is a requirement, in order to keep members active.
Stay on topic when posting replies. There is a whole forum for off-topic stuff, so try to avoid making comments that do not contribute to the conversation (i.e posts such as "okay", "cool", "haha", etc. aka FLOODING). Look before posting a new topic to make sure it has not already been posted. Make new posts in the right forum. If it is in the wrong forum it will be moved to the right one.
If you spam this board, you will be warned for the first 2 offenses and then banned for the 3rd and final offense. Also, after the 1st offense, your posts will be monitored by the admin indefinitely.
DO NOT post any pictures featuring sexually explicit material. Doing so will result in suspension for how ever many days the moderating team feels is appropriate.
Fighting with any member will result in deletion of thread. If you have a problem with someone, PM (or e-mail) a staff member. DON'T bring it on the board for everyone to see. Any violation WILL NOT be tolerated!!!
ADMINISTRATORS & MODERATORS:
Try your best to show respect for these people, as they are your board leaders. If you have any problem with any staff members (including me), just PM the admin.
No member will be treated differently. Nobody is better than anybody else at this forum & will not be treated like it. No remarks regarding race, sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ect.. Any violation WILL NOT be tolerated!!!
No nude, half nude or offensive avatars. Avatars must be no larger than 250x250 pixels.
No nude, half nude or offensive signatures. You may only have no more than 2 pictures in your signature. It will be edited if you have more than that. You may advertise, as long as you meet the requirements for this board (see 'ADVERTISING' above). There is no size limit, but please don't make them too big. USE COMMON SENSE!
