***Important SCF Rules About Early Bumping and Signature Sizes PLEASE READ***
Please read over all of the rules. Some are quoted and explained below.
V Posting Guidelines:
SCF offers a wide range of forums. Always locate the proper forum before posting. If you are unsure, contact a member of the staff to assist you.
Thread hijacking or trolling is not permitted on SCF. Hijacking a thread is considered taking over a thread that you did not originally create and posting something that has nothing to do with its actual subject matter. Examples are trying to sell or trade cards in a thread where the original thread starter is doing the same or jumping in a thread to elicit information about an item that was not mentioned by the thread starter. To remedy this, simply create a new thread. Trolling is considered making comments in someone's thread in provocation to create emotional distress towards other people or picking a fight.
Bumping a thread is only allowed after 8 hours have passed since you last posted if you are the last poster. Also, you may not bump more than once in an 8-hour period. You are not permitted to bump a thread if it is still located on the first page of the forum. Bumping is considered any post that is not in response to a previous post. This includes items such as “ttt”, “bump”, “list updated”, etc. Please note that this rule applies to the trading and buying/selling forums.
Posting a thread for the purpose of having someone give or look up a book value on an item is prohibited. If you are in trade talks, book values can be used and posted as long as the source is not cited.
When you post cards for trade, please combine your lists to a single post instead of having multiple threads for a single card/player/Want. This rule is to help let everyone have an equal chance of having their thread on the front page longer instead of a single person having multiple threads dominating the whole page, No member is allowed to have more than 3 Topics on main page at any given time.
If you wish to run a contest, you must contact the Contest Manager prior to posting it.
Please do not post any trader information such as addresses, feedback or email addresses directly on the forums. This is private information.
There is no gambling of any kind on SCF including fantasy sports leagues, betting cards, betting card cash, or anything that has value.
SCF Staff members reserve the right to close or delete any post or thread that may be deemed unacceptable or improper for this website At any given time (this includes thread domination on main page).
Redundant/duplicate threads...avoid posting similar threads! Combine your wantlist and tradelists into as few threads as possible too.
If a member wants to sell a card at a certain price, they have the right to. Certain off-topic replies to threads is considered thread hijacking.
We do not allow spamming of other sites on SCF, unless they are in our network of sites. We do have an Affiliate program as well as offer Advertising opportunities to anyone with a personal gains website. This includes all non-sports card related sites as well as sites where you receive compensation for referrals.
Ebay auctions are not allowed in the trading forums! These auctions can only be advertised in the Sites and Auctions forum.
Please keep your signatures limited to no more than 5 lines. You may also have a banner image in your signature. The size limit for the banner should be no larger than 100 pixels high x 300 pixels wide (45k size) and there is only to be one such image in any signature. Premium and VIP members are allowed 500 x 100 (75k size). Also, members cannot have a font size larger than "3" typed in their signature. If you want something larger than that, create a banner. Having a link to your personal site like Freewebs is allowed. Having a link to your business website in your signature is prohibited without having a link back to SCF. The link must be approved by the SCF staff. Please refer to the Advertising Guidelines and if you have any questions please contact the Off-Site Relations Manager.
Also, links to eBay stores are permitted in your signature only for staff members, ex-staff members and VIP members. No other auction or store site is permitted unless you are a site sponsor promoting your own store. However, you still can use the eBay profile link that's under your username when you post as well as post auctions in the Sites and Auctions Forum.
If you need help adjusting the size of a banner, check out our Graphics Forum.
Instead of confronting a member on a issue, report the post and a staff member will handle the situation. When viewing a thread, you will see an red/white icon at the bottom of every members post (under profile info when viewing a post). This is our "report post" feature. If you see any member violating an SCF rule, please hit the button, type a message, and a moderator will resolve the issue.
If you have any questions please PM a member of the basketball team!
