    News & Rumors Rules - Please read and follow...

    Please follow these rules before posting new threads in the News & Rumors section.

    Here are the updated News & Rumours rules:

    1. Remove all the links in any news you post. You do this by selecting the whole article and clicking the "Remove Link" button.

    2. Quote your sources. We here at WrestlingClique have a list of accepted sources, to make sure that the quality of what makes it into the section is kept to a high standard, if you're going to post news these are the sites we currently accept as reliable news sources:-

    - PWInsider
    - PWTorch
    - F4WOnline
    - Prowrestling.net
    - Pro Wrestling Sheet

    These are our recommended sites, and if you post news from elsewhere you risk an infraction for your effort. If however, you want to recommend a news site you feel is worthy of the list, that is fine. PM one of the Mods and they will put it forward to the rest of the staff to weigh up the pro's and con's of said recommendation and if it's reliable it may be added to the list. Major news sites such as CNN, ESPN, ABC and such are accepted, as well as news items from WWE.com and TNAWrestling.com of course.

    3. Check before posting. Make sure you're not double posting news that already exists. If it's news that is part of an ongoing story then add it to the already created thread, if one exists.

    4. Add your opinions. If you're gonna post news, then you obviously have a reason to do so, so please let us know what you think. It's adding to the discussion and it'll help people understand what you're thinking and possibly even spark a debate.

    5. Make sure all text matches, pick one font and colour and stick with that. That includes editing the news item you're posting when it includes words in a different colour to the rest of the story.

    This section is heavily monitored and your posts may be edited or removed if they don't meet our high standards.

    Thanks
    WC Staff.

    While this section is for spoilers, be sure to not include spoilers in the thread titles. We don't want our non spoiling posters on the main page and seeing "Ultimate Warrior to Return and Win Rumble" as the last thread posted in. That would give away a major spoiler without even going into the thread. However, "Major Return Expected to Win Rumble?" would be a lot more spoiler free.

    Please pay attention to this rule, we are still getting a lot of news posted twice when it just takes two minutes to check if it has already been posted.

    Can people please get the news from the actual site, not a random wrestling site.

    So if you go to bull****wrestlingnews.com and see this

    According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Triple H has filed for divorce from Stephanie McMahon as he has realized, after watching her latest video, he is still madly in love with ex girl(boy?)friend Chyna
    Then go to the Wrestling Observer and check to see if its true and get the news from there, a lot of these sites make news up and credit it to the likes of the observer and pwinsider.

    Another bump.

    Please do not post news from the likes of rajah and wz, these sites are far from reliable.

    Can people also post all there news in quotes.

    For example

    Triple H has announced that he will fight The Undertaker in a career vs Streak match at Wrestlemania.

    I am bumping this because people aren't paying attention to this rule, there's a reason we don't use wrestlezone and the reason is that its a bag of shit. The site often credits news it has made up to the wrestling observer and pwinsider.

    Re: News & Rumors Rules - Please read and follow...

    With a number of new members joining the site over the last few days I thought it would be time to bump this thread.

    Please can all members who post news in the section follow the rules in this thread.

    Thanks

    WC Staff.
