Forum Rules

In our continuing quest to make this the best umpire forum and overall best umpire related site please adhere to the following rules.

Rule No. 1 -Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling

Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated at Umpire-Empire. Treat others on these message boards as you would expect them to treat you. Posting topics specifically designed to provoke a negative response from someone (aka trolling) is prohibited. There are however some posts that will cause debates that may offend you. If you are easily offended by discussions on highly opinionated topics we suggest you stay out of those topics.

Rule No. 2 -No 'Spamming'
Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages to gain a higher post count, or just to annoy others is HIGHLY frowned upon! Commercial spamming and advertising are just as unwelcome.

Rule No. 3 - Impersonating Other Users / Accessing Another User('s)Account
You may not impersonate another board member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited. You will be banned. Additionally, taking a username from another “well-known” user on another board will not be permitted.

Rule No. 4 -Nudity/Porn/ Bad Words
Please remember that this board is a 'PUBLIC' forum. All posts should be no stronger than PG-13. There are 12 year olds here just as there are 50+ year olds. Nudity and porn is prohibited for obvious reasons. Do not post pictures with BAD WORDS written on them because the word filter will miss this.

Rule No. 5 -Copyrighted Material
Umpire-Empire users agree not to post any material that is protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner(s) of said copyright, trademark or other proprietary right. You may link to others protected material.

Rule No. 6 - Signatures
Signatures will be allowed once you have 25 posts. There are not many specific restrictions on signatures. You may post links to your personal and business sites as long as they are not offensive. Signatures should be relatively short and contain no more than 3 links or images.

Rule No. 7 - Language
This is an English speaking forum, please type your post in English.

Rule No. 8 – Linking
If you have a site you want to link to, please do. Links are allowed in your signature and in your posts. If you want to promote your/another site please just be obvious about it. Any site linked to must not contain or promote Porn/Nudity/Spam/Hate/Drugs or related sites. Unapproved commercial links are prohibited.

Rule 9.01( c)
– The Umpire in Chief has authority to rule on any point not specifically covered in these rules.

Have fun and make this the best umpire site on the internet.
