Here are some basic overviews of how and where to post threads as well the conduct in a thread.

Where to Post Threads -

1.) Wrestling threads
Wrestling threads should be categorized by their subject. If the subject is a RAW, SmackDown, Indie or International star, post their thread in the corresponding section. For example, a thread about Rusev should be posted in the SmackDown Live section, whether or not the news is about his SmackDown career.

This is to encourage posts and activity in sections that would otherwise be neglected for a massively inflated general discussion thread. The general discussion thread is for more wide-ranging news or discussions that don't correspond with a single brand or star on a brand.

2.) News & off-topic threads
Post news threads in the Personal and Serious section. Personal life and opinion threads also go there. While more laid back content that isn't serious or opinion-based should go in the off-topic section.

An easy way to know whether your thread belongs in a certain section is to see if it corresponds with any of the prefixes in the Serious section. If it doesn't, then it doesn't belong there.

3.) Entertainment threads
This is a simple thing. Threads that have to do with media and entertainment go in the Entertainment section.

4.) Be the Bookers, wrestling opinions, lists, podcasts, reviews and fantasy booking
These are all threads for the PWF Interactive section. Don't post those type threads in the General WWE or General Discussion sections.

How to Post Threads -

1.) News threads
News threads, whether it be real life or wrestling related, require a source. A good and easy way to include a source is by hyperlinking. To do this, highlight the words that you want to hyperlink, click the "Link" icon next to the font picker in the editor, paste the URL from the site you're quoting and confirm.

2.) Spoiler threads
Make sure to include a spoiler tag by clicking the "+" and adding it. If you're posting a thread in a section with a "Spoiler" prefix, use that as well. The rules on spoilers are that you must refrain from spoiling on the main forum within 24 hours of an event happening. Otherwise, you should still tag them.

How to Act in a Thread -

1.) Off-Topic
We aren't going to be very stringent on if you go off-topic, but purposefully going off-topic may warrant a thread ban.

2.) Flaming
Don't flame people for the purpose of flaming. If you have a gripe. Handle it elsewhere, not in a thread. Flaming may result in a thread ban or a suspension.

3.) Duplicate Threads
This is something that I've been suffering from, but posting a duplicate thread happens. The newer thread will be merged into the older thread. If a thread is not in the right section, it will be moved. Otherwise, report or notify a mod when it happens.

We are simple but just have a few rules nothing huge.

1.) Please make tags for your thread and link a source.

2.) Don't post the same post over and over again.

3.) If you find news, post it and be passionate about it. If you like or hate a wrestler its not an issue, but give why you do and why you don't.

4.) Allow other opinions in your thread as everyone deserves a voice. You might think they are shit, but they deserve all of our attention.

5.) Have fun being here and suggest PWF to others. Too many wrestling forums have rules or don't allow you to say what you want, but we allow you to, as along, as it doesn't impede on our laxed rules.
