Forums Rules + Do's and Don'ts
Forum Rules
Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. If you agree to the terms, please check the 'I agree' checkbox and press the 'Register' button below. If you would like to cancel the registration, click here to return to the forums index.

Although the administrators and moderators of UDPride Discussion Forums will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and the owners of UDPride Discussion Forums, the Dayton Daily News, and Cox Publishing will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owners of UDPride Discussion Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

Participants in the forums should respect the privacy of others and any malicious attempt to provoke 'flame wars' will be grounds for account termination.

All University of Dayton athletic department personnel including but not limited to athletes, coaches, and administrative persons inherit the same rights and protections EVEN if they are not registered members. Please respect others at all times and show good sense and common courtesies whenever possible.

Forum Do's
DO show respect for others and treat everyone as you wish to be treated.

DO post topics and threads in their appropriate forums and keep the discussion on topic.

DO contact forum moderators when you find material that does not meet the standards outlined in the forum rules.

DO take an active part in the discussion and offer your opinion. Unpopular opinion will be respected by moderators so long as the posts are elevated, on-topic, and show a level of care and respect for others.

DO keep your login credentials private! Staff and moderators will not be liable for passwords that are not secure. Change your password often and use a combination of letters, numbers, symbols, uppercase, and lowercase.

DO keep your Control Panel profile accurate and up to date! Keep your email address on record current. Only valid email addresses will help you fetch lost passwords with the automated password retrieval tool.

DO make an effort to use the automated Lost Password retrieval tool at the forums login screen before contacting moderators or staff about authentication issues. If your email address on file is correct, chances are you can reset your password without staff or moderator intervention.

DO make an effort to support this Web site with a financial contribution. Most fans choose to join Pride Plus and receive additional Web site privileges along with a premium forum for insider information in return for a yearly contribution. For information on joining Pride Plus, go here:


Forum Don'ts
DO NOT post material for the sole purpose of aggravating others. If you have personal issues with other forums members, you MUST use the Private Messaging tool to address these matters. Persistent use of the discussion forums to handle private gripes with other members may result in your account de-activation.

DO NOT copy and paste materials from other sources into the forums! Materials from other sources is copyrighted and the COMPLETE ownership of the copyright holder. All intellectual property including most Web site content is classified under general copyright guidelines and may not be reprinted, republished, or redistributed to other places without the expressed written consent of the owner. You may ONLY post small snippets (defined as 100 words or less or under two paragraphs) that identify the content and the owner. You MUST then provide a URL to the original content after any snippets to direct visitors to the complete body of work. Copying and pasting copyrighted material without consent is THEFT and will not be tolerated under any circumstances! Offenders will have their accounts removed immediately.

DO NOT copy and paste ANY material from UDPride.com including the topics and threads on the discussion forums. UDPride.com maintains ownership of all material on the domain and your contributions and discussion material act as implied consent to these terms and conditions. If you wish to post material on this Web site at other locations, you must contact the UDPride staff for expressed written consent to republish or redistribute materials.

DO NOT post off topics materials that have nothing to do with Flyer athletics or news that has no direct or indirect relationship to the purpose of thid Web site. This is not the place to discuss politics, environmental issues, the race for the World Series trophy, or other topics unrelated to our focus. There are thousands of message forums on the Internet. If you have material that is completely off topic, find an appropriate forum on another Web site to discuss it.

DO NOT use profanity, derogatory remarks, or any speech for the sole purpose of inciting a riot. The staff will not tolerate ANY flame wars and such behavior is in violation to the terms and conditions outlined in the Forum Rules all registered members agreed to at account signup.

DO NOT use the private messaging system to send childish, aggravating messages to other posters. Your private messages MAY BE monitored by UDPride staff and moderators. Your private message privileges are much like company e-mail privileges and may be audited at any time by staff, moderators, and administrators. Those found to be abusing private messaging privileges may have their accounts de-activated.

Chris, there is a very interesting article in today's NY Post about what the expansion of the Big 10 can mean for all the conferences and what impact it would have on the Big East non-football schools. Can a link be displayed to that article on this message board (without violating any copyright rules and, if so, how do I post it?) I think it would be an article of interest to all the folks on the board, especially since it has UD joining the Big East B-ball schools along with the Dukes, St. Joe's and X.

Always appropriate to post a link in the body of a post. Just paste the URL into the message.

Could this be the post you were referencing?

Thanks ud69, that's the one. I couldn't find out how to start a "thread" or how to add onto an older "thread" and I wasn't sure what was appropriate for linkage.
