A big part of our ability to operate, update and moderate this forum at Covers.com comes from the relationship with our advertisers.  Recently those advertisers have begun to crackdown and set higher standards for content where their ads display on a daily basis.  In order to appease our advertisers who are very valuable to the future growth of this forum, we need to implement some updates to the Community Forum guidelines.

Users are no longer able to post active links in threads. You can still post the URL you want users to view, but now other users will have to copy the link and paste it in the browser themselves. Don’t be lazy; it’s just one simple step.

Any images, avatars & URLs containing nudity, pornography, sexually explicit bikinis, lingerie or illegal drug use are banned from the forum. We don’t hate nudity; we just don’t need it in the forum.

Users whose Avatars have been removed will see a Red Ghost Avatar in its place. Users will be banned if they breach these guidelines 3 times.

Please take some time and review the full Community Manifesto http://www.covers.com/postingforum/forum_manifesto.aspx.

Please post any concerns or questions you may have in the Covers Help Forum. Try to refrain from creating duplicate threads. If there is a thread in the help forum already dealing with the same issue, please add to that instead of creating another on the same topic. Duplicate threads will be deleted.  http://www.covers.com/postingforum/POST01/showmain.aspx?spt=17

Lastly, remember that we’re always watching what you post. We reserve the right to remove and ban any users we feel are not meeting the guidelines. We don’t want to do it, so please don’t give us a reason to.

Hi lajohn,

Go to "my space". Click on edit on your profile. On the bottom of the screen is an option to upload an avatar.

I AM ASKING THAT YOU HAVE A POSTER NAMED ( Regzset).

REMOVED or AT LEAST KEEP HIM FROM BASHING ON MY POST. HE DOES NOTHING BUT BASH EVERYONE.

I HAVE NOT SEEN HIM POST ANY PLAYS JUST BASH.

IF BASHING IS WHAT YOU LIKE ON YOUR SITE PLEASE ADVISE AND I WILL GLADLY GO.

I POST MY PLAYS AND BASH NO ONE ELSE FOR THEIR PLAYS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME <> BACC1939.

Hello,

There is a site wide issue today with Streak Survivor and League Contests. It hasn’t yet updated from last night. Our IT team is working diligently to get it corrected.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


Thank you,

How can you guys allow a poster named l-jay to start a thread post so much false information to deceive legit posters and user numerous alias id's to bash people on his thread, I just can't believe your staff would allow this sort of conduct to occur on your site, look at his thread 14-0, completely littered with his fake user id's and constant bashing, then he gets people banned when they fight back, I think it is totally unacceptable and I feel all his l-jay username should be placed in the penalty box and his 14-0 thread should be deleted from the site as it adds no value to covers except to promote hate and bogus info, please let me know immediately as this is just unacceptable, do the right thing please
