**** Sherdog User Rules, Faq And Contact Information ****

For account problems, or trouble registering, please send emails to tom@sherdog.com or send pms to this account.



Welcome! Sherdog is a private forum so posting is a priviledge, not a right. All rules are subjective to administrative interpretation.

Double Yellows: last 30 days. Members lose many posting abilities. Any infractions while carded = ban.

Double Yellow Infractions

1. Fighter Bashing (including refs, promoters and the like) won't be tolerated anywhere on the board. Criticism is fine, flaming isn't. Minor bashing such as "so and so sucks, is a dick, etc." is a double yellow, while extreme bashing like "so and so is a pile of shit, *********, etc." will result in a ban.

2. Hateful Comments ("Shut up ***," "Fuck you Newb," etc.) - some leniency given to the off-topic area only.

3. Postwhoring. Posting "+1," "too long, didn't read," "rickson by armbar," empty quoting, etc., will result in a double yellow card and post count reduction.

4. Scrollbombs or posts designed to cause thread or computer problems.

5. Posting/soliciting video clips of events recently shown on pay per view.

6. Nudity. No bareass, assfloss, nipples or graphic poses, avatars included.

7. Copyright infringement. Ex: If a site posts and interview, post a link don't cut and paste the entire article.

Ban Infractions

1. Hateful comments. "Shut up ***," "Fuck you, Newb," etc.

2. Member Harrassment (including pms, threats).

3. Tape trading/selling.

4. Using an alternate account while carded.

5. Orchestrating forum raids.

6. Posting a private conversation or personal information without consent.

7. Trolling (posting ridiculous/racist/disturbing/pornographic comments, images or links).

8. Porn. Posting, quoting or outwardly soliciting/providing pornographic images or links. This means:
No rape threads/posts/images
No shit threads/posts/images
No beastiality threads/posts/images
No overtly pornographic threads/posts/images
No pedophile/incest threads/posts/images
No grossout threads/posts/images

9. Posting fight spoilers outside the spoiler forum (shows on tape delay in the U.S.)

***NOTE*** -- We're only interested in what happens regarding the website, if your brother, ex-girlfriend, or drunken asshole buddy gets into your account and starts posting infractions while you're on the toilet, the account will take the bullet regardless.

If you see a thread getting out of hand please pm a moderator and it will be taken care of.


Thanks, and enjoy the forums.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. How do I send and view recieved Private Messeges, or change my avatar, password or email as well as check up on subscribed threads?

All of this can be achieved through the User Control Panel which can be accessed from the top of the site by clicking the button USER CP, there you can view subscribed threads/forums, edit your profile and manage your private messeges etc. You can also choose to have a "pop up" box remind you that you've recieved a private messege.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Why don't my posts count towards my postcount?

Postcount is disabled in the following forums:

Wasteland
Sprechen Ze Jive
Pictures & Multimedia

Posts will not be counted in the above forums.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. I've cleaned out my PM box but it still says it's full?

Clean out your sent items folder. When ever you send a PM, it is copied into the Sent Item folder and takes up as much space as an incoming PM. The total PM box capacity is 70 messeges, you can regurarly check how full your PM box is from the Forums Index.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. How big are the avatars and when do I get one?

The avatars are 100 x 100 pixels and their maximum size is 10kb. You get one after 250 posts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. .It says that the picture I'm trying to upload is too big, how do I reduce the size of the image so I can use it as an avatar?

The image must be 100 by 100 pixels and under 10Kb. Download Ulead GIF animator and under the "Optimise" tab reduce the size of the image and it will compress the quality and the size accordingly. You can also use this program to make, resize and add special effects to avatars in GIF format.


Ulead GIF animator 5.0 can be downloaded from www.download.com and is a 15 day trial.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Forum Lingo, Sherdogisms, and common subjects

Q. What does TTT mean?

TTT means To The Top, its used if a thread drops down to the bottom or back a page and people still want you to see it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Whatís a newbie?

If you didnít know what TTT meant you might be a newbie. Newbie just means a new person who posts on the forum. You may have encyclopedic MMA knowledge or you might not even know who Royce Gracie is. Your post count is not what makes you a worthwhile poster, itís the quality of your posts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. What is this Romo word I keep hearing?

I keep asking whatís the ringing in my ears but this one is fairly simple. You know how Royce is pronounced Hoyce well take Romo and pronounce it with an H. Same goes for Rottie.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Why are these purple belts telling me to STFU newb, what does that mean?

It means Shut the Fuck Up new forum poster, a very witty remark often used by jerks when a newbie bring up a thread or subject that has been done to death.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Are Joe Son, Fred Ettish, Ranger Stott, John Hess, Harold Howards mullet and 360 kick funny?

Yes, 3 years ago.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Whatís a postwhore?

A postwhore is someone who has many useless posts or posts that do nothing to further the conversation and are only used to boost ones post count.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Why do I see Vandeleiís name posted as Wanderlei?

Vanderleiís name is spelled Wanderlei in Portugese, its pronounced with a V and as such itís usually spelled with one.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Did Sak tap against Royce in the Pride GP?

No, it was a loose guillotine and in an interview I read Sak said that Royce had kneed him in the groin, he was just letting him know he was alright

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. How are the rules different between Pride FC and UFC?

Check Ďem out for yourself http://www.pridefc.com/about/rules.htm for Pride and here http://www.ufc.tv/learnUFC/rulesUfc.asp for UFC

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Where is the old Vitor?

The Vitor Belfort who beat Silva, Abbot, Ferrozo, and Telligman is no longer with us. His game is scouted, he appeared briefly in the Liddell match but Chuck kept backing up and circling, then he knocked him down.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. How would Bruce Lee do in MMA?

Weíll never know heís dead. If you really feel the need to explore this amazing subject we have a Fantasy Matchup forum where you can place Mr. Lee against anyone you please, and he wins every time!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. How do you become a mod?

By substantially contributing, showing maturity/solid judgment, and loyalty over a certain lapse of time. Even after you do all this, you're not guaranteed a spot since the promotions are relatively subjective on a private board such as this.

No Postwhoring, No Name Changes (read)

This forum is moderated by admin who don't always have alot of time on their hands to read through mountains of irrelevent garbage or bantering to get to a legitimate comment or need. In order to make responses faster and more efficient frivolous posts will be deleted and postwhoring will result in a double yellow card.

Same with name changes, they used to not be a big deal due to the rarity of a guy screwing up his name coming on, now Customer Service and Board and Site have essentially become name change forums: "Change my name from Joe16 to JOE17" or "I lost a bet and need my name changed for three weeks". If a name change is that important, abandon your account for a new one. Pms requesting name changes, or account information swapping will be deleted as well.

Happy Trails.
