We're not here to get in your way and try to control discussion, what we want is for people to have fun and to foster a sense of community that's inclusive and not cliquish, and to accomplish that we ask that you abide by a few simple rules.
a. ALL FORUM RULES APPLY IN SAS unless specifically waived in this thread (see Game Day Thread Rules Below).
b. AVOID HABITUAL LOW CONTENT / LOW EFFORT POSTING We're not looking for you to write essays, but we don't want it to look like AIM in here either. Try to use single word and single emote posts posts sparingly. If you do it habitually you'll be warned and probated.
c. DON'T BE A DICK There are some posters who try to fly just under the radar and are constantly antagonistic and try to get as close as possible to trolling without trolling. If we think you're just here to piss people off and act like an rear end you'll get a warning then we'll get you out of here. By all means have fun, but contribute, don't be a dick.
d. FAKE POSTING IS A GREAT WAY TO GET BANNED No one cares about your posting persona. Popping wheelies for your postin' bros with low effort posting and messing up threads will not be tolerated.
e. TRY TO STAY ON TOPIC While some off-topic discussion is inevitable, especially in the off-season, please try to keep derails to a minimum. This is not something we want to have to take action on, but it's something we're counting on you guys to self-correct on. For now we're leaving it in your hands. Please report lengthy derails so we can break them up.
f. POST THREADS FOR MAJOR NEWS ITEMS Please don't feel restricted by the megathreads! If a major news story hits or one you're interested in discussing more in detail make a thread about it! Give us your thoughts and start a discussion.
g. WHEN SHOULD I REPORT A POST? Whenever you think there's a problem. Even if something's not explicitly outlined in the rules please feel free to report it or to PM any of us about it. We'll be happy to look into it and try to resolve the issue. Our goal is to keep things running smoothly here with minimal involvement from us, but if there's a problem that needs to be corrected we want to know about it!
a. NO DRUNK POSTING Drunk posting is not allowed in any thread in SAS, as is standard across SA.
b. BANNED CATCH PHRASES The rest of SA does not allow certain catch phrases and we will be paying more attention to them as well especially Free [Username]. Please go through appropriate channels to appeal a mod or admin decision. If you're not sure what's a catch phrase you probably need to lurk a little.
c. NO THREAD making GBS threads Do not poo poo on threads. If someone posts a bad thread it's not an invitation to get 'cho FYAD on. Report it, try to make it better or don't post in it.
d. NO "WE ALREADY DISCUSSED IT IN THE MEGATHREAD!" We want people to post more threads. If you want to duplicate content in the megathreads that's fine! But if people want to discuss it again in a new thread that's fine as well.
e. NO RACISM OR HOMOPHOBIA Ironic or otherwise. It's not edgy or funny and is a great way to get your 4chan rear end banned.
f. NO SPAMMING We've all got some hilarious images but pasting the same image or line over and over again for comedic effect will result in a ban, not a probation. Same goes for posting triple / quadruple posting in rapid fire.
g. NO RIVALS.COM PUNS Please avoid using any dumb puns or nicknames to insult players or teams. Posting about how much you hate Tony Homo and the Dallas Cowgirls is a great way to lower the level of both humor and discussion and find yourself probated or banned.
h. NO PPV Streams Sharing streams of games on TV is fine, but sharing or asking for streams of Pay Per View content is against the rules. If you're in doubt ask before posting or requesting.
i. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR POSTS If you copy/paste and awful post from somewhere else and post it as if it is yours to gather hilarious overreactions we're just going to treat it as if you really did post it yourself. Even if you PM us afterwards to tell us it was a youtube comment.
a. LOW CONTENT POSTING OK Low content posting rules do not apply to gameday threads. We realize they're too fast moving and are basically extended chat rooms.
b. NO SPAMMING This does not however mean spamming is okay. Pasting the same thing over and over again or image spamming will result in a ban.
These will not be returning for the foreseeable future. Please do not ask us about this.

Update for 08/29/2010
We're going to try relaxing the rules on single-emote/no caps posting. Things around here have improved a lot, especially in TFF, and there's a lot of great threads popping up. We don't want this to be an over-moderated experience and with where things are at now I don't think we need to quibble over things like this, so let's give it a shot and try not to abuse it. Thanks guys.

Update for 03/23/12 HI MOM!
If you take a horrible post from another board or comment section of an article and post it as your own we're going to enforce rules as if you posted it yourself. So quote it don't just make it a normal post and get all smug when people think you said it, or when you get put on probation when it looks like you made a terrible loving post.

STOP loving IMAGE SPAMMING IN GDTs, YOU DUMB ASSHOLES
This has always been a rule, but we've never enforced it very well, so take heed: if you post the same supposedly hilarious image a bunch of times in a row YOU WILL BE PROBATED FOR A MINIMUM OF A WEEK AND POSSIBLY BANNED DEPENDING ON HOW ANNOYED I AM AT THE TIME. That poo poo is annoying as hell to scroll through. Yes, we get it, gently caress Duke. You don't need to post an image to that effect 75 times in a row to get that point across. It's not funny. It's loving annoying. Please stop.
