BBE TERMS OF SERVICE

GENERAL RULES OF BEHAVIOR

  1. BBE and its moderators will respect you and your opinions. In return, you must be respectful to everyone else.
  2. No flaming, name-calling, bullying, personal attacks, or belittling of anyone will be tolerated...including ball companies and people who are not members of this site.
  3. Absolutely no comments that may be considered ethnically, racially, religiously, or sexually offensive will be tolerated.
  4. Participating in online fights will not be tolerated, regardless of who started it.
  5. Any posting, Chat or PM threatening physical violence will be dealt with severely.
  6. You are welcome to disagree, but keep it civilized and mature. State your case and leave it at that.
  7. BBE would like to be teenage and work-safe. This means we need to communicate at a PG level. Keep your language in check at all times, and never use any questionable language in your posts or in your signature. Absolutely no questionable pictures need to be posted/linked/attached to the board. (This includes avatars)
  8. If you would like to vent and discuss topics of an adult nature or curse, then please join the ANYTHING GOES forum. (You must be 18 or older to join.) PM an admin to arrange for access. All of our rules of behavior apply to the Anything Goes forum, except that cursing and sexual references are allowed in your posts, but not in your post titles. We need to keep post titles clean because they appear on our BBE Home page.
  9. BBE requests that you do not use multiple usernames. Accountability is very important to the community, and anonymous posts by someone's hidden username are frowned upon.
  10. Signature lengths must be kept reasonable, and cannot be used for business/service advertising (unless you are a BBE Authorized Retailer). If your signature is obnoxious, it will be edited.
  11. Administrative actions regarding BBE Members are private and conducted via PM. These actions may NOT be discussed in open forum or chat.
  12. All communications on BBE are the property of BBE and are subject to review in order to maintain our standards and to protect our members, especially children.
  13. NO HIJACKING THREADS, if your subject matter has nothing to do with the thread it will be removed. Once a Thread has been started all posts should be relevant to the question or comment created.
BALL COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES AND STAFFERS ARE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD
  1. The rules above (and all other BBE rules) apply to you strictly. Please become familiar with the rules in this post.
    1. Realize that your behavior reflects upon the company sponsoring you.
  2. Staffers have been released in the past by their sponsors for unprofessional behavior. These rules should help you avoid such issues.
  3. BBE will never contact your ball company without first making you aware of a problem and giving you a chance to demonstrate that you will not repeat an offense.
  4. You should expect respect and civility from other staffers and you are required to return that professional courtesy.
  5. Harassing or harming the reputation of other ball companies or their representatives will not be tolerated.
  6. If a ball company is introducing a product or promotion, you may not introduce negativity into the thread.
  7. This also applies to ball videos submitted by other staffers.
  8. A post in another ball company's own forum is off limits to you unless you have something positive to say.
  9. If you have an issue with another staffer, keep it out of open forum and use PM's to communicate in a civil and professional manner.
  10. If another staffer is violating these rules and it affects you or your ball company, stay out of fights and contact a BBE Admin. Give us time to handle the matter because we are not online 24/7.
