Title: FORUM RULES
Post by: TCW on August 13, 2017, 11:07:07 am
Neither the Administrators and/or Moderators of The California Wrestler.com  forums, are responsible for the privacy practices of any user. Remember that all information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to share any of your personal information. Any user who finds material posted by another user objectionable can use the REPORT function on the post to notify the forum administrators. You can also send a Private Message (PM) to any of the Administrators or Moderators to report questionable content.

By participation on these forums, we are authorized by you to remove or modify any data submitted by you to these forums for any reason we feel constitutes a violation of our policies, whether stated, implied or not.

You are fully responsible for any information or file supplied by this user. You also agree that you will not post any copyrighted material that is not owned by yourself or the owners of these forums. Copyrighted material includes, but is not specifically limited to, full texts of online articles, copyrighted video, etc.

In your use of these forums, you agree that you will not post any information which is considered soliciting, advertising, vulgar, racist, harassing, hateful, threatening (this includes personal attacks) abusive, invading of others privacy, sexually oriented, or violates any laws.

Advertising  of camps, clinics (including free or paid  clinics), clubs or merchandise is not allowed on the forums. If your post(s) contain logos or contact information for camps, clinics, clubs or merchandise, this will be considered a form of advertising;  your post will be deleted and your account may be subject to suspension and/or a permanent ban.

It’s acceptable to advertise your sanctioned CIF elementary, middle school or high school tournament or sanctioned association tournament within the state of California. Any tournament not sponsored by a sanctioned association is subject to paying for a banner  advertisement. To qualify for free tournament advertising, participant’s checks must be made out to the school district or the school’s wrestling booster club.

As stated above, if there is a problem topic or post, report it. It will then be decided upon by the forum administrators if the post warrants removal or a warning. When a post is removed, users will receive a notification as to why, unless it contains any of the actions listed above. If a post does violate one of the aforementioned policies, a “warning” will be issued. Flooding the board with spam-like comments are grounds for immediate removal as are extreme instances of the prohibited scenarios listed above (example: racist comments). Crudeness is also grounds for removal without written explanation.

1 Warning = Post removed and warning listed.
2 Warning=Post removed and user unable to post for one month.
3 Warning=Post removed and user banned

Users may request reinstatement after a certain time period, to be determined by forum administrators.


It is recommended and suggested that users on The California Wrestler.com forums post with tact and class. Our forums are a highly useful tool for the wrestling community and the actions of a few can reflect on our community as a whole. Parents, grandparents, coaches, wrestlers and their siblings and relatives, school administrators, athletic directors, members of the media, former wrestlers and friends of California wrestling all read our forums. If you wouldn't want your parents or kids reading what you post, think before hitting the submit button. Please act responsibly.
