BBV Forum Guidelines / Rules *****UPDATED 8/16/2013*****

Welcome to BBV. This forum is for the posting of poker related Beats, Brags, and Variance. Basically its where you ***** and where you brag. BBV is NOT where you post your life related BBV or any other sort of Off Topic threads. Please post those in BBV4L, OOT, or the Lounge. Read the stickies there before posting obviously.

Note: No putting "poker" or "EV" in the title of an Off Topic thread doesn't make it a poker related thread.

What doesn't belong in BBV?
  • Staking requests or begging for money. These will result in a ban
  • Your blog thread or a link to an off-site blog. Links will be removed and infractions will likely be handed out. If you want to make a blog thread, visit the PG&C forum.
  • BBV isn't meant for poker advice. If you want to ask a question about a hand or poker in general please visit the appropriate strat forum

Forum Decorum

Note: This list is not meant to be all-inclusive. There may be things that will be punished that are not necessarily included in here and punishment is subject to moderator discretion.
  • Do not hotlink pictures. Hotlinking is when you directly link to a picture from another website. Occasionally web hosting services will turn these pictures into goatse and other various disgusting pictures. You are responsible for pictures that you post so please use a rehosting service.
  • On this line of pictures: NSFW pictures should be labeled as such and kept in NSFW threads or posted in spoilers.
  • Images that contain any nudity (male or female) may not be posted inline whether or not its in a spoiler. These images can be linked to so long as they are labeled as NSFW
  • Stupid and over-repeated memes really aren't funny. Even if you think they are hilarious - they probably aren't. Posting "first" "cool story bro" etc etc will get you infractions
  • Posting "ban OP" in a thread 200 times really isn't funny either - seriously. This also results in infractions.
  • Do not do anything to evade the profanity filter. Just spell out what you want to say and let the filter do its job. Posting profanity that would normally be filtered in an image is also not permitted.
  • Death wishes are not permitted and result in a minimum ban length of 3 days. These include posts such as "you should kill yourself" or "jump off a bridge"
  • Trolling is not permitted. This is extremely subjective so expect there to be some variance. This obviously doesn't count trolling terrible threads (to a degree)
  • Nested spoilers and page stretching are not permitted. Not only is not funny - its just really annoying
  • Racism will get you infracted or banned

To repeat: This list is not all-inclusive and there may be things against the rules that have been left out. As they come up they will be added to the sticky.

If you see a post that breaks these rules or you want a moderator to look at for any reason please report it. Simply click the button that looks like this to do that.

Exclamation ***NO MORE STUPID MEMES!***

Hi,

Effectively immediately stupid, overused memes are not allowed in BBV. If you use one - you better make it creative and hilarious because, if not, you will be punished.

I'm talking about all the stupid, overused memes but to name a few: 'ban op' 'cool' 'cool story bro' 'first!' 'in before/after x' etc.

We'll start off light at first until people get the hint. Warnings for first-time offenders that will graduate to infractions/bans at varying degrees depending on situation.

*

edit / gt

To clarify "at first" is over as this rule has been in effect for more than 90 days now. No more starting off light.

Re: ***NO MORE STUPID MEMES!***

This is now expanded to trying to start sick combos by posting one letter such as

"c" or "b" while trying for the elusive cool story bro or ban op unless super creative

re: BBV Forum Guidelines / Rules *****UPDATED 3/27/2012*****

Also, thanks to that same guy and NMHU, add another rule from your friendly Nazi moderator:

If you end your posts with a signature that results in nothing but wasted space in the thread (ie: adding unnecessary whitespace to every post you make), I will warn you and then temp ban you.

Other moderators can also feel free to enforce this rule, but if _I_ see it, you're getting infracted and temp banned. Seriously, you are NOT important enough to need to sign all your own posts and this is NO DIFFERENT than posting stupid BS like 'cool story bro' that waste space and people's time. Get over yourself.

Waffle EDIT: Im adding this due to the recent influx of these kinds of requests. We as mods are not responsible for your terrible decisions. This rule is enforced retroactively.

The rule is simple once you post it in OOT it becomes the property of OOT. If you wish for your horribly bad decision to be deleted we will gladly help you but you are taking a ban in return (no less then 7 days Im not a super nazi like killa He does a month) If you do it on gimmick , your primary is going to get ban for a year.
There will be no exceptions made. Friend or noob.
Train Wrecks are not against the Terms of Service , tread carefully before you go bad mouthing your friends slutty mom.

To clarify , if you ask for your thread that you started (or someone else started for you with your permission) to be deleted or locked because it has turned into a wreck you will be ban.

we will again begin enforcing this rule with more vigor

if you post a meme it better be funny (or add to your likely terrible post) because if it is not you will be infracted or worse

final say of what constitutes funny is at the complete whim and discretion of moderators

meme at your own risk

I can't believe I have to even mention this, but any racist, bigoted, anti-gay, anti-religion or otherwise hateful posts directed at a group of people for their beliefs, skin color, sexual orientation, etc. will result in an insta 3-day ban.

More than one and it's perma.

Some "jokes" are never funny.
