    Forum rules

    1. Read these forums rules and guidelines before posting for the first time.
    2. Search the other posts threads to see if your topic is already covered.
    3. Use a meaningful title for your thread.
    4. Stay on topic.
    5. In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members.
    6. Do not double post (post the same message twice in one thread) or cross post (place the same message across several forums).Premium members may post the same thread or post in one free and one premium forum.
    7. Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts. Do not use multiple(more than 3) fonts, font sizes, or colors in your posts.
    8. Do not use threads for private discussions. Please use our conversation (Private message) system.
    9. If you copy or quote a post, do not change the wording of the post you copy or quote.
    10. If you have a question for a moderator or administrator please send it to them in a private conversation.


    When posting an article and link to a news source, keep in mind the following:
    If the article has more than 8 paragraphs then post 4 paragraphs

    If the article has less than 8 paragraphs then post 3 paragraphs

    If the article is 6-7 paragraphs then post 3 paragraphs

    If the article is 3-5 paragraphs then post 2 paragraphs.

    Rival and Gator sites
    You may not link to an article on a rival Gators site, that would be 247, Scout, Rivals and others that may start up.


    I know some feel we are all adults here and we should, members, be able to say what we would like. However, we are not all adults on this forum. Also, we have many members who do not like certain expressive words and we still do not allow those words.

    We do not allow the F word and the words that are slang for male and female anatomy parts (not the arms and legs either). Actually those words start with C or P for the most part, but most here know it when they see it. We also do not allow the "GD" word.

    We do not just enforce that rule to be restrictive but to be respectful to everyone.

    Of course most of the time these words are used to vent in game threads or frustration with our teams. Normally we will just delete those posts and move on, however if it comes to the point that is happens more than it should we will shoot you a message.

    Also, we do not allow faux spelling of the words and fill in the blanks of the words like f**K.

    The above also applies to photos and videos embedded on GC forums. If a link is provided to such then a suitable warning should be noted (NSFW) and the link may not include words that violate the policy.


    You can lament the Gators and their performance all you like, but once that turns to insults we will either warn or ban you. Remember that players, players' parents and families, recruits and their parents can visit the site.

    Other sites may welcome the traffic but we try to keep our forums civil and respectful..

    If you see an insult just report it and it will be taken care of.

    We are pretty good at spotting insults, as are our readers. If you intend to insult someone through your words or attitude toward them, we will figure it out.

    You may have an avatar, signature photo or signature gif/video set up in your profile. The signature photo/gif shall not be more than a couple of inches.

    When posting you can post one (1) photo, video, or gif per post. Any more than one will either be edited or completely deleted at the discretion of the moderator.

    Exception: if two photos are needed for comparison they can both be included in the same post (such as does Mark Richt still look like Helen Hunt?)

    Effective today, there will bo no links or stories that were generated on Scout, Rivals to 247. We have tried for some time to allow these, but this is Gator Country and most of that stuff is written by our writers in articles or posts..
