Jump Ball Game Thread Rules and Expectations 2018/19/20
« on: November 07, 2018, 04:45:53 am »

Just as HOGVILLE has rolled out some new things in the MMQB Football Game Threads, with Basketball season just days away, we will now make some similar changes to the Jump Ball Forum - Basketball Game Threads. We hope that ALL HOGVILLE members and guest will now realize a more positive experience with their involvement in the game threads whether posting or just reading. We want everyone to feel more comfortable when they come to the Jump Ball Game Threads to share time with fellow Hog Basketball fans.

If you are NOT a Razorback fan, you are already walking on a thin sheet of ice.

HOGVILLE posting rules have been in place for many years and the Game Thread rules have not changed much, but enforcement of the rules will change as we try to continue to bring you the best game threads possible.

The Game Threads are NOT a frustration outlet, instead they are a place for fellow Hog fans to come and enjoy each other's company, have civil conversations and to enhance the game time experience. 

With all this said, lets discuss the expectations of these game threads. Some of these expectations are the same expectations board wide. Others will only apply to game threads.

Unless otherwise stated, most offenses will be removed and warnings will be given via PM. We aren't looking to ban anyone and we hope we don't have to. A post removal will be considered your first warning. A second post removal will come with a PM asking you to tone it down. A 3rd removal will ultimately result in a ban, duration will depend on the offense.

1. No player Bashing. Consider this post your one warning and it is non negotiable. Breaking this rule will result in being banned from the board. None of us wanna ban people, so just avoid it.

2. No trolling or baiting other posters. This also applies to name calling. Keep it out of the game threads. This especially means questioning and arguing about moderation. Take it to a PM or take it to an administrator if you have problems. Don't junk up the game threads.

3. Avoid the emotional outbursts. Profanity and cursing and trying to mask it will not be tolerated and will cause your post to be deleted. Frustration will certainly be present at times, avoid posting it in the game threads. Its the knee jerk reactions that most people have trouble with. Again, keep it out of the game threads. If you need to yell and scream, go outside and yell at your neighbors dog. Short negative posts that add nothing to the conversations and game time experience will be deleted and repeatedly doing so will end up with a ban.

4. Civil conversation is encouraged. We do not care if you have a positive, negative, or neutral outlook as long as you keep it civil. Some of our best discussions in Extra Innings and other forums have centered around negative slanted conversations. The misnomer is you must spit rainbows and butterflies, and its simply not true. We expect and love a great debate.

5. Have fun. The purpose of the game threads is to make the board a little more enjoyable for the fan. Imagine it this way...You're sitting around with a group of friends at the game, at a bar, or at your living room. Enjoy being around other fans and talking about a sport we all live and die with. Keep other people in mind as you post and ask yourself if you're adding to or taking away from the experience.

The HOGVILLE team has worked hard to make this board the greatest fan board on the planet and we are looking forward to the season and enjoying the game threads.

We hope we don't have to moderate much, but know that we will if needed. The moderators, including those who will produce the threads, have the ability and blessing to remove any offensive posts. We try really hard to avoid banning people. Help us out by doing your part.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have, but understand that this thread will not be a bash the moderators free for all.

Enjoy the season and WPS! GHG!

Good rules and I support them 100%.  I just hope that the good folks in Jump ball do just half as well as the good folks in mmqb at following the rules of the game thread.
