1. Copyrighted Material
Florida Panthers Message Boards users agree not to post any material that is protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner(s) of said copyright, trademark or other proprietary right.

2. Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling
Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated. Treat others on these message boards as you would expect them to treat you. Posts must be kept civil or you will be banned.

3. Profanity and Sexism
Offensive language will not be tolerated. If you want your post to be read, avoid profanity or your post will be immediately deleted without notice. Simply editing a few letters with an asterisk or other symbols isn't allowed, either. Also, racism and sexism will be deleted immediately and the offender will be banned.

4. Spam
Purposely spamming a message board with senseless or empty messages is not permitted. Spamming your personal or commercial site also will not be permitted. Posting fake news headlines is also not allowed.  Also, reposting the same post (regardless of changing the wording just a little bit) across many topic boards (or multiple times on the same board) on the site is considered spamming.

5. Impersonating Other Users
You may not impersonate another board member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited.

6. Off-Topic Posts
Each board has a heading, please read before you post. Off-topic posts will be moved and possibly deleted.

7. Multiple user accounts are prohibited. If multiple accounts are discovered, they will be deleted.

8. Please do not post full news articles. Give a brief synopsis and then link to the article.

9. Questionable Content
These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. These issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate,offensive, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, racist, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense.

By registering at the Florida Panthers Message Boards, users agree that any post deemed inappropriate may be removed at the sole discretion of the Florida Panthers. The Florida Panthers also have the right, at their sole discretion, to revoke board privileges at any time without notice or reason. Think of these rules as a forewarning and, if you break them, you're taking your account status into your own hands.

10. Please note that the Message Boards Rules extend to all areas of the Boards system, including but not limited to Private Messages and Signatures.

11. The Florida Panthers is not responsible for messages posted on the Message Boards or the content therein. Unless expressly stated otherwise, this includes messages posted by Florida Panthers personnel. The Florida Panthers reserve the right to reveal the identity of or whatever information we know about any user in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by said user.

12. The Florida Panthers have the right but not the obligation to monitor and/or moderate the Message Boards. The Florida Panthers reserve the right to change any or all other parts of this User Agreement at its sole discretion and without notice, including but not limited to implementing Rules of Conduct, Terms of Service and/or other measures.


13. If you're going to present a statement as fact, you need to provide a link to your source. We understand that links may not always be available, but particularly when when making a significant claim (trades, personnel issues or quotes) you have to make a genuine effort to back the statement up. Opinion and speculation must be presented as such.


If anyone has any questions regarding the rules, please do not hesitate to ask a mod.
