WWE SECTION RULES
gfx credit: ABrown
Do not flame or personally insult people for having an opinion or disagreeing with your opinion. Do not flame in response to a flame because both of you will be banned. Purposely inciting or baiting other members is also not allowed.
No Requesting/Providing Streams for Wrestling Shows
We are strict on this issue. If you are caught asking for or posting a link to a stream to a PPV or wrestling show you may receive a warning or ban from the forum.
Opening Posts Should Engage In Discussion
If you are going to post a news story or pose a question to the forum, at least add your opinion or a simple introduction in the original post.
Misleading Thread Titles
If you make misleading thread titles, one of the following three things will happen. a)A staff member will edit the thread title. b)The thread will be closed. c)You will be issued a warning. Please do not make misleading thread titles. There's no need to lure members into your thread.
No More Unsubstantial Threads
If a thread has a weak or dumb subject manner, or is just a random thought with seemly no reason, it will be closed. If a moderator doesn't think a thread has enough depth, it will be closed. If a moderator thinks a thread should not be open, it will be closed. This includes topics that have been done to death. Usually the moderator who closed the thread will leave a closing remark and you can PM the moderator if you have any questions or concerns about the decision. With that said, remember sometimes the reason a thread gets closed is self-explanatory if it is blatantly worthless.
Provide Credible Sources
If you post wrestling news, post where you got the info. A direct link to the article would be even better. Wikipedia is the least reliable source of wrestling news. Any thread based on Wikipedia info will be closed. Also, do not use Bleacher Report, Wrestling News World, Wrestlezone, Wrestling News Source, dailywrestlingnews, Brad Shepard, nodq, Ringsidenews and Wrestling Cafe as news sources.
Inquisitr is another example. This is not a news site, but an opinion based site. The same with Sportskeeda, this is just another blog that takes rumors and adds their own spin on it and then falsely circulates the rumor. No more copy + paste information from sites like this and regarding it as news.
No threads based on MetsFan4Ever. Moderators will close any thread they believe the source of information lacks credibility. Cagesideseats has also been added as they base their rumors on no source information, making it worthless.
Do not double post and make sure your posts add to the discussion topic. Responding to posts with "This" is considered spam so please add more to your quoted responses. Replying to threads with only gif images or pictures does not add much to discussions either. Try to make substantial posts.
Do NOT Bump Old Threads
Really simple, do not bump threads more than seven days old unless you have new information pertaining to that topic. PM a moderator to make sure it is OK.
No Duplicate / Similar Threads
Threads with the same insider reports or discussing similar topics will be closed. This also means threads with a subject related to an already open thread. For example, there should not be threads about John Cena’s finisher, Cena’s mic work, and Cena’s wrestling ability open at the same time. Since they are all related to Cena, the oldest thread will be the only one to remain open.
USE SPOILERS TAGS
Do not post results/spoiler threads without (SPOILER) in the thread title. Do not post spoilers outside of official spoiler threads. If a discussion calls for it, use spoiler tags. If the spoiler is big enough, say a major title change or a Superstar returning, warning points may be issued. This applies to ALL WWE shows.
Put Threads In Proper Sections
If a thread is about a wrestler/match/event from a PPV broadcast, put it in the PPV section. The same rule applies to the Raw & Smackdown section. WWE game threads go in the Wrestling Games section. If you are creating a topic on a PPV, past or present, post the thread in the PPV section not the General WWE section.
Comparison threads are fine but can be moderated accordingly. If the comparison is a repetitive comparison, then the thread may be closed.
No WWE vs. TNA Threads
WWE/TNA topics always turn into unnecessary arguments between WWE and TNA fans. Please do not make a thread comparing the two companies, or any other promotions.
Do Not Make Show Discussion Threads
WWE Mods, Super Mods, or Admins make official discussion threads.
