Ohio State football talk.
GO BUCKS! 34 days....
Make good, thoughtful comments, don't talk about politics, and respect others.
Basically, don't be TeddGinnIsFasterThanYou. ;)
When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.
I thought Jason banned all TeddGinnIsFasterThanYou personalities. Somehow they've gotten back online to DV you.
How Firm Thy Friendship
He probably went to his local library and made 4 new accounts to down-vote his comment 4 times.
And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.
OSU, please see this:
"Because the rules won't let you go for three." - Woody Hayes
THE Ohio State University
say something cool!
Like the ball in the stands, we balls out
But be careful or that UV could turn into a bunch of DV's...............

Post things like this
"I'm not going to lie. We're anxious to be a part of a matchup like that. It's two states that love the game of football." -Jim Tressel
And/or like this.......
Any kind of joke about TTUN and Brady Hoke. Funny and relevant gifs. See Bucksfan Changing His Icon thread.
"Sherman ran an option play right through the south" - Greatest Civil War analogy EVER.
Quality commenting, quality gifs (kept within a shade under an 'R' rating), respect for others (there are actually cool M...igan fans here).
Check the commenting policy for further details, and welcome to the site OSU.
Especially the part about Michigan fans. Also, respect others opinions. A dissenting opinion is just that, not a wrong opinion.
Just remember what comes around ... goes around ... right Bert?
+1 for the initial comment. Additional HS are awarded, or revoked, based on other readers giving you a thumbs up or thumbs down.
Be respectful. Put thought into your comments. And don't be an asshole.

Just to clarify Mike's otherwise sound advice - I especially want to echo the part about being thoughtful and respectful - remember that the helmet sticker system is not used to express disagreement, but rather to give a hearty "hear hear" to great comments from the community while also playing whack-a-troll with those who stray outside the lines of civility.
In other words, up vote more than you down vote. Up votes are best given out like candy at Trick-or-Treat, while down votes should be reserved for comments that violate the commenting policy or basic rules of good taste. Don't use down votes to express disagreement.

Well said, Andy. My fault for being so vague. I should have been more clear with this vital piece of information. You deserve many many up votes for this, sir.
All good Mike - I'm just hyper-attuned at the moment given the frivolous down voting we've seen lately. I think newer members of the community might assume (perhaps understandably) that the votes are a method for registering their opinion).
Plenty of ways, but if you don't want to lose any then dont talk about what you tweeted at a recruit.
“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”
If you earn enough helmet stickers, you'll get 11W premium edition and use of the lounge.
When it happens, you'll know.
from what I've heard, some of the premium lounge VIPs show up, unannounced, at your door and whisk you into an unmarked panel van. Beyond that, I'm not certain what happens. I've even updated my address and when I'll be home and not expecting visitors in my profile, but nothing yet. I guess I need more stickers.
I've heard that mowing the lawns of other 11W members doesnt hurt either.
Marty does not agree.
Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.
If you just send me all 32 of your helmet stickers, I will send you 500 in return.
Just wire transfer them to the bar in the premium lounge c/o Chief B1G Dump.
Hove, can you take care of this? Chief is drunk at the bar again, and trying to swindle the newbies out of their stickers.
It's fine. The credit card processor only runs on quarters now, and we hid the machine between the Keno games...underneath a case of vintage Zima.
So....I guess I should just get rid of these Jolly Ranchers I planned to put in those Zimas?
No way...drop them in. We can always give them out at Xmas should there be a shortage on fruitcakes.
You know the Seinfeld where Elaine buys all the sponges and decides if someone is sponge worthy?
i have a similar scenario with my Zima stash. I decide if parties are Zima worthy...
How does one get access to this 'premium lounge?'
And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
It's super secret...
Wait til you get to 10,000 Stickers - the Premium Lounge elevator goes up to the 2nd level and let's just put it this way it's.......
Sorry got to go - I got a client calling me. Check back later.
They're granted by a Nigerian prince. That's all I know.
Anytime you throw up a reference like this - it's usually a crowd favorite.
The best way to rack up helmet stickers is...mention downvotes you've received on your other posts. You'll gain the sympathy vote and rack up the stickers.
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Went to see how many helmet stickers you had and noticed you're from Westerville. Good stuff
Thanks for all the insight on helmet stickers. This forum is a lot better than some of the others....I won't mention them. But I see nothing but good stuff over here and no BS.
See ball, get ball.
Yeah OSU, we have a nice friendly community over here without too much douchebaggery, when one gets out of line, he is swiftly dealt with. Kind of like 'Pimp wars' Remember 'Pimp wars'?
Life's daily struggle is choosing between saying F--ck-it, or soldiering on with your responsibilities.
Most people do it like this:
Hove gets very generous when you pick up his beer tab.
I give Lloyd UV's.......................well, no, no I don't
Whatever you do, DO NOT create multiple accounts in order to give yourself stickers. Evidently, that is frowned upon in this establishment.
Just say no to italics abuse.
Usually any type of Animal House movie reference is a good thing.
Whatever you do, don't drop the bass...
I find that it just works best to ask for UVs and complain about DVs.
If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. ~ Bruce Lee
Don't ever speak of downvoting or you will be downvoted. It's like fight club...
If you must, you can try that method out and let me know how it works out for you.
EDIT: Don't piss anyone off either. Otherwise you will most assuredly be downvoted for no reason other than your username.
"If you root for Michigan, the terrorists win."
Whhaaat? Are you sure?
I'm picking up your sarcasm.
Well, I should hope so, because I'm laying it on pretty thick.
