Anaheim Ducks Message Board Rules

Recommended Posts

Forum Terms & Rules - Read Before Posting - VIOLATORS WILL BE BANNED

Welcome to the Anaheim Ducks message boards. We rely on you, the visitor, to help keep this board enjoyable for all. Please report all violations of the rules below to Anaheim Ducks Admin via private message or e-mail at duckbdadmin@cox.net . Moderators do not read every post, so please do not expect intervention unless you personally report the problem. Thanks for your cooperation.

Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below. If you agree with them and wish to proceed with the registration, simply click the "Register" button below. To cancel this registration, simply hit the 'back' button on your browser.

Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.


1. You will not start a new topic (i.e. hit the "new topic" button) if the topic already exists. Always search for an existing topic to reply to, and only start a new one if you are sure the topic hasn't been discussed recently. (Search engine link is on the top left corner of every board page)

2. You will post your topic on the correct board. With hundreds of messages posted every day, it is necessary to have several boards dedicated to the more popular conversation topics. Please think about which board your topic belongs in before posting your message. Repeatedly taking a thread "Off Topic" will not be tolerated.

3. You will be tolerant and respectful of your fellow visitors. Criticism of ideas and opinions is welcome, but you may not attack other AnaheimDucks.com members in any way. You will find every opinion imaginable here, so you may want to find another board if you are not able to keep your cool when someone's viewpoint offends you.

4. Your message must add something of substance to the discussion. One-liners, list topics, and other "spammy" messages are not welcome.

5. You will send all suggestions, complaints, compliments, etc. to the Administrator via private message or e-mail at duckbdadmin@cox.net . If applicable, please include a link to the topic in question so the Administrator does not have to search for it. Messages of this nature posted on the boards will be ignored and deleted.

6. Messages sent to Season Seat Holders either via Email or Postal Mail may not be quoted or posted on this board. Those are messages sent to the Season Seat Holders for events limited to that group, and not for the public. The same rule applies to this as to using foul language.

7. You will not use the board to advertise any product or merchandise (including Ducks tickets) or web site. Anyone caught posting unsolicited advertising on the board, private messages, or AnaheimDucks.com e-mail forms will be banned and reported to their internet service provider and/or site host. You may provide one discreet link to your site in your signature as long as it's clear you are genuinely interested in contributing to the conversation.

8. You will remember this is a family-oriented site with many young visitors. This board is not an appropriate place for sexually explicit, violent, hateful, or vulgar discussions. Foul Language will not be allowed. You will be warned ONCE  and then removed.

9. You will respect the personal privacy of players/management and their families. Discussions about players or management that have nothing to do with hockey (including talking about how good looking the players are) are strongly discouraged. Do not post phone numbers, addresses, or locations of any players, employees, management, or other board members on this public message board.

10. You will not confuse the message board with a search engine. This board is intended for hockey discussion; do not use it to get other people to find information you could easily find yourself on a search engine such as Google.com.

11. If you are a fan of a rival NHL team, you will not attempt to antagonize Ducks fans. This is an Anaheim Ducks site and our Ducks fans have the right to a place where they can discuss the team amongst themselves in peace. Biased viewpoints should be expected, so if you must respond, please do so in a respectful manner.

12. When registering, please be aware that if you use a screen name that includes or is similar to an existing members screen name, they will have to give permission for you to register your name. It gets very confusing when multiple users have very similar names.

All of these rules are necessary and were created to fix significant problems with the board. We are host to the most popular NHL team board on the internet and, as a result, have to run things a little differently than you may be used to on smaller sites.

Anyone who repeatedly violates these rules, intentionally or not, will be permanently banned from viewing or posting on the Anaheim Ducks message board. All topics and/or messages that violate these rules will be deleted or archived on sight. Please do not post here at all if you disagree with any of these rules.

The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this bulletin board. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.

You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this bulletin board.
