TheBigSpur.com Message Board Protocol
Palmetto Proving Grounds
Palmetto Proving Grounds is for Gamecock sports, recruiting and general sports discussions. Some general discussion and off-topic posts are permitted at times, but are subject to deletion or being moved at the sole discretion of the TBS Staff if the board deviates from its core focus. This board is moderated by the TBS staff. Fans of other schools are permitted to read available posts (if user selects show all option when posting) but are not permitted to post messages without the consent of the TBS staff.
The Barnyard is an off-topic and Carolina football and recruiting discussion board. It’s free to register and post on this board. It is not as heavily moderated as Palmetto Proving Grounds, but there still is an expectation of acting like an adult. Political banter will be deleted if it involves name-calling or mud-slinging. We also will delete posts that have over-the-top profanity and sexually explicit content.
The McGuire Room
The rules of Palmetto Proving Grounds apply to The McGuire Room. It is free to register and post on this board, which includes discussion of South Carolina basketball. There is content for members only featured on this board.
The Sarge, which focuses on South Carolina baseball, has the same rules as the McGuire room and also features free and premium content.
The TBS Ticket Exchange is for all members/subscribers of the 247Sports network to buy and sell tickets. Only members/subscribers of the 247Sports network are permitted to posts on the Exchange. This board is for individuals only. Ticket brokers and agencies are not permitted to sell or broker tickets without express consent from TBS.
