A little spit and polish is often needed to clean things up around here - just like the Angels did last year with a new paint job, updated
advertising score boards and more. Here you go with your mostly unchanged but slightly updated community guidelines:
- The Angels and Baseball are the topics.
- The purpose here is to have fun.
- If you are not having fun, come back when you are ready to have fun.
- OPTIMISTIC? Don’t bully others into cheering along.
- PESSIMISTIC? Bitch once, then offer a solution. Don’t bitch twice, it’s alright.
- Disagreement and intelligent critiques are welcome.
- Try not to feed the trolls
- Criticism is NOT censorship - your opinion is always allowed, but so is everyone’s opinion of your opinion.
- Do your best to keep it PG-13. (Parents Strongly Cautioned – some material may be inappropriate for children under 13)
- You may use the F-word once a month maximum.
- No T&A pictures ever - No exceptions.
- No politics. Ever.
- We are not a clique or frat or sorority - there is no hazing of new members and no seniority; please be welcoming and engaging to new members or just ignore their foibles in proud elitist silence. Your status here is based on the merit of your comments and posts.
- No Ticket Sales
- If you have something to advertise, buy an advertisement
- Don’t join the community to pimp goods or services or you own blog, Youtube page, etc.
- NO posting pictures, animated gifs, etcetera in game threads (it slows them down).
- No requesting new game threads.
- No links to pirate feeds.
- The passionate mention of TYPICAL game situations is NOT jinxing, don’t harangue people discussing game situations with the label of JINX. In fact, that is officially being more of a jinx than the initial jinxer. But if you DO jinx an Angels no-hitter by mentioning it you are banned - maybe.
- You are obligated to use good grammar and write about interesting topics.
- If you don’t use good grammar, there may be some who are obligated to poke fun at you.
- If your debut in the community is a FanPost and it sucks, you are not going to last long around here. Maybe start by contributing to some of the article comments and game threads first.
- PLEASE Try to impress us. Think: A+ for Effort...
- We offer sophisticated posting tools, so learn these tools.
- FanPosts are deeper analysis, investigations and detailed, passionate commentary.
- FanShots are for quick links and news with little commentary.
- Your FanPost/FanShot Headlines MUST convey the Subject.
- Redundant, ambiguous, boring or amateurish FanPosts get erased without warning.
- If your FanPost is really good, we will likely feature it on the front page.
HOW TO GET BANNED:
- Martyrs and Hostile posters get banned fastest.
- Start telling us what to do.
- Halos Heaven is like Vegas and our goodwill is like your casino chips - if you gamble away your chips you don’t get them back, they’re gone from the table and you’re gone from the casino.
- Make racist, misogynist or homophobic remarks. Or threaten another member with violence.
