These boards are meant to be a place to respectfully discuss all things UTEP. Disagreements and conflicting opinions are expected and often necessary for productive discourse.

Because most users are anonymous and we’re all communicating behind the distant security of a screen, it’s easy to say things that you wouldn’t say to a person’s face.

The boards will be moderated according to the following guidelines:

  • Racist or sexist comments will not be tolerated, this will now be strictly enforced.

  • No attacking other posters. Do not bring up their name in posts that they did not start or were not involved in, and do not start posts just to talk about them and get a reaction. Do not consistently respond to their posts with no merit other than to belittle them.

  • Do not post unsubstantiated rumors about anyone that could be considered libelous.

  • No political threads of any kind, only acceptable threads are OT posts related to sports or El Paso, Texas, New Mexico or other local topics of conversations, pop culture threads will be reviewed so tread lightly please.

  • Criticism of UTEP is allowed and encouraged if that criticism is supported by reasonable facts and opinion. That does not mean you have free range to bash or alienate a player or coach with your comments. If you disagree with how they played or the effort they put forward, please voice your opinion and state why you hold that opinion. If it's something you would not say to their faces, then don't post it.

  • Posting of commercial offers, competing websites, or spamming of the board will not be permitted.

  • No pornographic or obscene material of any kind.

  • No posting or distributing any material that infringes and/or violates any right of a third party or any law.

Personal attacks on anyone -- whether an anonymous poster or outside person -- will not be tolerated.

Report any content that violates these guidelines.
