Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Forum rules
    We always welcome new members to our little OU Sports community. We are always looking for people who enjoy a family type environment where members can post in a friendly and civil environment.

    We don't concern ourselves with the QUANTITY of post on our boards. We do try to have an environment where QUALITY of the threads are informative and create discussion.

    To accomplish this we have had a small number of rules that we hope our members will follow.

    1. No Name Calling
    2. We don't condone profanity
    3. We also don't allow porn on our boards.
    4. Partisan political as well as religious issues are not encouraged. However, there are some sports topics that are political in nature. Topics related to Title IX are the best example. Same with subjects related to OU, the BOR etc.

    We have a fairly large number of females who populate our message board. So, the profanity and porn rules.

    Our main boards are the OU Sports and the Women's Sports forums. Our Women's Sports forums is likely the best forum of it's kind on OU sports message boards. Our sybil created this forum about a decade ago and today we have a large number of women's sports fans who create lots of great threads.

    We admins/moderators would encourage all new members to give the Women's Sports board as good luck. I think you will enjoy reading and posting on it.

    Soonertimes is a very old OU sports message board. We have been around for a long time. There are lots of members here who have posted here for well over 25 years.

    We hope you will enjoy your stay here and feel comfortable posting here. Of course, lurking around and reading the board is encouraged as well. #
