Community Guidelines

TOPICS:

  • 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.

COMMUNITY CONDUCT:

  • 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. (Unless the politics specifically relate to baseball)
  • 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.

COMMERCE:

  • No Ticket Sales
  • If you have something to advertise, buy an advertisement
  • Don’t join the community to pimp goods or services or your own blog, Youtube page, etc.

GAME THREADS:

  • NO posting pictures, animated gifs, etcetera in game threads (it slows them down).
  • No requesting new game threads.
  • No links to pirated 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.

FANPOSTS:

  • 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.
  • Your Headlines MUST convey the Subject.
  • Redundant, ambiguous, boring or amateurish FanPosts may 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.
  • This site 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.
