Hey folks - as a member of the DawgNation community, please remember to abide by simple rules of civil engagement with other members:

- Please no inappropriate usernames (remember that there may be youngsters in the room)

- Personal attacks on other community members are unacceptable, practice the good manners your mama taught you when engaging with fellow Dawg fans

- Use common sense and respect personal differences in the community: sexual and other inappropriate language or imagery, political rants and belittling the opinions of others will get your posts deleted and result in warnings and/ or banning from the forum

- 3/17/19 UPDATE -- We've updated the permissions for our "Football" and "Commit to the G" recruiting message boards. We aim to be the best free board out there and that has not changed. We do now ask that all of you good people register as a member of our forum in order to see the sugar that is falling from our skies, so to speak.

GET STARTED: The DawgNation forum

We really don't like a lot of rules directives in this life. Especially for something that should be a lot of fun. Yet with that, we must establish a few.

Some folks just try to be "THAT ONE" on the interwebs.

FORUM GUIDELINES

  • Smart coaches have very few rules, too. Basically a "Be on time" and "Do the right thing" and "Don't do anything to hurt the program" mentality. Those are all encompassing. The abiding rule here is to treat this place like a friend's tailgate. Or the tailgate of someone you visit often and would consider a friend.
  • Would you say something at that tailgate you are about to post here? If not, please think it over. This program does derive from the South. Our mamas raised us better than to go messing up a good Saturday tailgage crowd.
  • NO SPAM
  • Personal attacks, name calling and insults on other community members, players, recruits or their families are unacceptable. Reminder: Practice the good manners your mama taught you when engaging with fellow Dawg and even non-Dawg fans
  • Use common sense and respect personal differences in the community: sexual and other inappropriate language or imagery, political rants and belittling the opinions of others will get your posts deleted and result in warnings and/ or banning from the forum
  • This is a board to discuss college sports with a specific focus around UGA, SEC football, major college football and college football recruiting. We respect and appreciate the civil discourse and intelligent engagement with fans of other schools and their teams. But just be advised that the flag waving above this virtual tailgate says “DawgNation” and the colors and red and black for a reason. 
  • We are not here to discuss hot-button political or social issues. There are plenty of other places for that. Threads that dovetail into these areas will be monitored closely. Some folks can't help themselves in these deeper waters.
  • Quotes from VIP articles from pay sites should be paraphrased and a link to the article must accompany any reference. Anymore than 2 paragraphs may be edited and post will be deleted if a link is not provided. No page snapshots from VIP sections are allowed.
  • No private messages shall be posted in the forums unless both or all parties agree to making the message public. Doing so will result in the post being deleted and/ or banning the poster from the forum. All Private Messages that are offensive should be reported to the Board Moderators.
  • Any post may be edited or deleted if it is deemed to be not within the standards of these guidelines. Moderators will be tasked with sharing via a PM why the thread was altered or deleted. We want to make sure our members get that initial courtesy. Because they deserve it.
  • The moderators of this site are mostly free speech fans, but we can only let things go so far.
  • No trolling and/or "stalking" members will be tolerated. If one seeks to define the boundaries of this policy, the moderators of this forum will be glad to define what those are to you.
  • Only one account will be allowed per Member. Alternative or multiple accounts will be deleted and banned.
