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

Yellow Cards: last 14 days and are warnings for minor infractions such as profanity in thread titles.

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, ***got, 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. Member Harrassment (including pms, threats).

2. Tape trading/selling.

3. Using an alternate account while carded.

4. Orchestrating forum raids.

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

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

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


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

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.
