Basic rules of posting on the message boards
No profanity, and no racist or sexist comments.
If you are wondering if what you are going to post, or perhaps did post and the post was deleted, is in violation of any of these three things--it probably is. If you need more guidance, please review the FCC's guidelines. While UGASports.com is not subject to the FCC, these guidelines can give you an idea of where we draw the lines.
No attacking other posters.
If you feel the need to harass another poster over time, don't do it, If you do, you will now know why your posting privileges were suspended.
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 only to belittle them.
No repetitive negative posting.
What makes a repetitive post? In short: if you consistently post more-or-less the same thing every day.
No posting of commercial offers, links to competing websites or spamming of the board will be permitted.
All threads will be deleted at the discretion of the site staff. If you are linking to a UGA fan blog, the blog must have a link back to UGASports.com prominently featured on the page you are linking to or the post may be deleted.
If your post on one of our message boards is deleted ....
The reason this happened is because you broke one of the basic rules. If your post is removed and you want to know why, email us. The wrong answer is to demand an explanation on the board. If your post is removed, your post was the problem and it is not our responsibility to have a debate about it on the message board. Again, email us.
What is the difference between being "nuked" and "blacklisted"?
Nuked is having one's post deleted from the message boards due to violation of the basic rules.
Blacklisted is having one's positing privilege taken away due to repeated violations of the basic rules.
Why can't people post whatever they want on the message boards?

What do I do if I get blacklisted and want to be reinstated?
First, you must recognize and admit there was a problem with something you posted. Then, if you want to get your screen name cleared from the blacklist, you must email the site staff and tell us your side of the story. It might be as simple as: "the 12-ouncers won", "I had just failed a test and was not in the best mood", or, complex like: "my uncle was visiting from out of town and he used my computer to post those nasty messages". Either way, if you email us about the situation, nine times out of ten you will be let back in. If you do not want to contact us and instead go underground and register for a new account, have at it, but the site staff and message board moderators are pretty good at figuring all of that out, and yes, they do have that much time on their hands. Also, the worse thing that can happen to your chances of getting back in is to have a bunch of people march in your behalf by posting a bunch of "Free BadDawg" posts. Tell your loyal following that they too can email the site staff as character witnesses.
Who is in charge of the message boards?
Members of the UGASports.com staff and the several volunteer moderators.
