    The FAQ for HFBoards has been updated with a new section pertaining to Copyright Infringements. Please see here for more information regarding this: http://hfboards.mandatory.com/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_usage#faq_copyright_infringement

    Site rules has also been updated:

    http://hfboards.mandatory.com/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_faq#faq_forum_rules

    One major change as a result of this - links to illegal streams may not be posted. The forums may not be used to solicit links to streams - no posting or soliciting streams for games is permitted!

    That means no posting links to third party streams of NHL games, Wrestling PPV's, UFC PPV's, and no asking for stream links, even if asked to have a link sent to you via PM, in any topic on HFBoards.

    I know that this will likely result in a few ruffled feathers, note that this is a result of possible legal action against various sites due to DMCA takedown notices. While you may think that such an event is unlikely, please note that the NFL just recently took down Deadspin's and Bleacher Report's official Twitter accounts by using the DMCA.

    Thanks, and all the best.

    In addition to the post above, we have to start posting sources with our rumors. Whether it's a link or just a source of the material in general. We are really slacking on doing that.

    Please also note - Forbes posts "articles" by just about anyone. They aren't Forbes writers. Anyone can post them. They are not reliable in any way.

    Because it's time for another addition:

    Sportskeeda, PWTimes, The Dirty Sheets, Bill Bahtti are not legitimate sources and make up news to get hits for their websites and podcast. The three names listed before "Bill Bahtti" are all run by the man himself. Don't put their stuff here.
