What are the forum ground rules?

The SBR forum is home to sports fans and betting enthusiasts all over the world. The forum guidelines have been put in place to foster a positive community atmosphere and to protect the contributing members. The SBR team of staff and moderators are active in the forums regularly and will enforce the rules as necessary.

Spam and third-party solicitation of any kind are not permitted in the forum. This includes private messages and user statuses. Violation of this will result in an immediate ban.

SBR prohibits users from posting their financial transactions with third-party companies. Sharing bet slips from sportsbook wagers is allowed. However, users are not permitted to post referral links to sportsbooks or casinos.

We do not allow for the posting of personal information (addresses, phone numbers, etc) in any forum.

We welcome lively and passionate debate, but members are expected to treat each other in a respectful manner. Inappropriate or offensive language is not permitted and will result in an infraction. SBR reserves the right to move, edit, and delete posts as necessary.

There is a zero-tolerance policy on harassment or personal attacks, including homophobic, sexist, or racist remarks. Any posts containing nudity will be removed and the user will be banned.

All avatar photos must be appropriate in nature and may not contain sexually explicit content, graphic violence, or offensive material.

Links to external websites are allowed for the purpose of information sharing. However, links to websites for the purpose of advertising/promoting will result in an infraction.

The sharing of service plays and information from handicapper subscription picks is not permitted. Any such threads will be deleted and the posters will be warned with a penalty to follow if it is repeated. Using the private message system to share service plays or in an attempt to recruit members for ‘group buying’ is also prohibited. SBR reserves the right to monitor private messages and revoke private message privileges.

SBR users are only permitted to have one account. Any additional accounts will be closed and are subject to betpoint forfeiture.

Repeatedly posting for the sake of inflating post counts or in an attempt to gain betpoints is not tolerated.

We encourage all users to help uphold these rules by self-policing the forum. If you see any posts that are out of line, please use the Report tool and moderators will take action.

What is the protocol for warnings and infractions?

SBR uses warnings and infractions to address member issues and violations of the forum guidelines.

Warnings are a reminder via private message from a moderator or SBR staff of a particular rule/guideline.

Infractions have points attached to them and accumulate on your account. An infraction may vary anywhere from 1 to 7 points depending on the severity and include a short-term suspension of posting privileges. Once a user reaches 7 points total in infractions, their account will be permanently banned.

Our moderators strive to keep infractions to a minimum. However, they will be issued when warnings are ignored, offenses are repeated, or a significant rule is violated.

Moderators are expected to treat members equally and will not play favorites or punish members unjustifiably. Be respectful to them and you will get the same in return!

What about Betpoints?

Users that share the same household may not both receive Betpoints. The second account will have loyalty points withheld. If this rule is violated, or if SBR determines that one user is controlling multiple accounts, SBR reserves the right to remove points from all accounts. In addition, offenders are subject to loss of their SBR posting accounts at SBR's discretion.

Users that become restricted or banned from SBR are subject to immediate forfeiture of their Betpoints balances.

Points cannot be bought and sold between users. No personal business or commerce can be conducted on SBR, including the PM system. Any points loaned between users is done at the sole discretion of the members involved – SBR is not responsible for reimbursing lost points.

Betpoints distributed through the forum are intended for positive contributions to the SBR community. This can include a well-written pick analysis, offering constructive feedback/site suggestions, or providing a helping hand to a new bettor.

If you have any questions about the SBR community, please contact a moderator or staff member and they will be happy to assist you.
