Fight Hype policy mandates that no public stream URL's, or new threads that give away spoiler information are permitted for any fights! Users may ONLY send private messages (PM's) or emails for any streaming content. All PPV, Showtime, and HBO boxing matches will have the/their on-going round-by round Spoiler thread(s) pinned up on the day of the fight(s)! Other important matches on different networks may also be pinned, depending their significance to the boxing community. (Matches will be pinned at least an hour before fight time.) No public links to streams, or posts that give away fight spoilers are allowed!
Any users who knowing and deliberately posts new SPOILER topics, or streams about the fights, without a Spoiler Warning in the thread's topic title will face account suspensions or bans! The word "Spoiler" must be included in ANY topic that does not have a pinned-up round-by-round thread already created. The results of the fight must ALWAYS be inside the thread and never outside the thread.
This policy is used to allow fight fans the ability to DVR the fights, and still have fun visiting the site without important fight information given away without a spoiler notice in fight threads.
Spamming and trolling is strictly prohibited!
FightHype's Spoiler Rules and Policies
Use the Pin-Up Round By Round Discussion Threads Provided For On-Going and Post-Fight Results. Note that they are there to keep the information about the fights organized and consolidated to create a real-time environment as the action takes place and for post-fight discussion. All Pay Per View, HBO, and Showtime Boxing Matches will be pinned, Other bouts may be pinned at the discretion of moderators and administrators on the basis of their importance and significance to the community.
Round-by-Round/Post Fight reaction threads are generally pinned for at least 24-48 hours to provide ample time for discussion and to allow everyone to see the fight and contribute to the pinned up thread. Threads may be unpinned after that period, or pinned longer if a match is determined by the community to be of historical importance, extremely exciting, or controversial in some way. Important announcements for forum and web-site operations, may be pinned up for an indefinite period of time.
NEVER GIVE AWAY A FIGHT SPOILER IN A THREADS' TITLE! NEVER TALK ABOUT A FIGHT TAKING PLACE ON ANOTHER NETWORK IN A DISCUSSION THREAD! Never knowingly give false information about a fight's results. Thread Spoiler Warnings MUST be in any topic's title and the spoiler results MUST always be inside the thread. No exceptions. Use this type of format:
(Thread Title) (Jones vs. Smith)-SPOILER. (Spoilers are always inside the thread) OR reply within our Round-by-Round and Post-Fight pinned up threads, which will look something like this:
HBO@10(ET)/7(PT) Jones vs. Smith: SPOILERS (SPOILERS ARE ALWAYS INSIDE THE THREAD!!!)
In rare cases, where an on-going SPOILER thread topic is not on the board, users may create a spoiler thread using the format above, provided that:
A.) The word SPOILER is in the topic title
B.) The results of the contest are always inside the thread's title and NEVER outside of the thread.
Create new threads ONLY if there is no existing thread about your intended discussion. Make sure that the thread you create contributes a quality discussion to our community.
