FORUM RULES & REGULATIONS 2012

The au.fourfourtwo.com forums are provided for the enjoyment of football fans and to encourage discussion to help develop and promote the sport in Australia. All comers, who contribute with constructive comments, are welcome. Team and club allegiances are similarly welcome, but unnecessary flaming to incite arguments are not! Football is something to enjoy and when played beautifully… behold.

Discrimination
No form of discrimination is allowed on these forums. That means Racism, Sexism, Bigotry, et al.

Threats
Any kind of threatening of another user, be it with physical violence, or any other kind of threat, is explicitly forbidden.

Swearing
Swearing, although not completely banned, is frowned upon. Use it sparingly, and remember that this is a family forum, open to people of all ages. There is to be no swearing within a threads title.

Inappropriate Material
There is to be no posting of material inappropriate to users under the age of 18. Depictions of violence, gore, sex, nudity etc. will be edited or deleted, and further sanctions may be imposed on the poster

Streams
No posting of links to live online streams of matches or other presentations that do not pertain to and abide by the relevant Australian broadcaster's copyrights. This includes providing instructions, names of websites, and/or initiating other users to contact you via the Private Messaging service.

False Information

No posting inaccurate or false posts about, forum users, people, clubs, teams and/or supporters. Credit your source if posting or commenting on news.

Insults/Personal Attacks.
No personal attacks on fellow forum users and/or moderators. Criticise the idea, not the person.

Duplicate Accounts
Do not create multiple accounts to impersonate or insult other forum users, or any real person. Obtaining and using another persons account details is also unacceptable.

Spam
Posts with the sole intention of advertising a product/website/service will be deleted and Accounts created solely for spamming will also be deleted. Quote Pyramids and Stretching of the Page is considered Spam, and will be edited accordingly.

Language
While we recognise the cultural diversity of football fans in Australia, all posting on Australian FFT is to be made in English, so as to be inclusive of as many readers as possible.

Forum Atmosphere
These forums are an enjoyable place, for any footballing fan to meet and discuss whatever they desire. When posting, keep in mind not only your own experience on the forums, but that of everyone else as well. People found to be continually harming the forum atmosphere, or ruining other people's experience on the forums, will be dealt with as need be.

Punishments/Bans
Any users found to be in breach of these rules will be punished accordingly. Repeat offenders will result in larger and larger punishments, until permanent action is deemed necessary.

Liability
You acknowledge that all posts made express your views and opinions and not the moderators or owners of this site and hence will not be held liable.

Haymarket
Haymarket Media reserves the right to reproduce any comments or posts submitted to au.fourfourtwo.com in other print and electronic media.

Moderators
Posts and/or Forumers not following the above rules, will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderating team. If you see a post that you find inappropriate or against the rules, contact the Moderators immediately. Decisions made by the moderating team are final, and ignoring their decision will result in further punishment.\

Joined the forum earlier this year. The atmosphere on here is almost always friendly and welcoming compared to other forums I post on. The posters/mods do a great job of keeping the boards clear of crap and it is without a doubt the best place to read and chat about aus football. Keep up the brilliant job guys!

How about mandatory citing of where source material comes from? Just out of courtesy, if not to credit the original author/writer/blogger/tweeter.

I assume this covers libellous accusations and/or allegations of criminal activity :lol:

This is probably covered by "Credit your source if posting or commenting on news."

You obviously don't support CCM. I've been called an AIDS carrier at least 20 times in the last 12 months because I live on the central coast but apparently that's acceptable.

No I don't. That's pretty poor form, did you report it to the mods?

To be fair, that's probably a ridiculous generalisation about the ridiculous generalisations used to describe you. :lol:

Thanks Mods. I post very rarely as I don't want to get into a slagging match with some 15 year old. I think this will encourage many more people to post about the football and less rants, though rants can be fun to read and cathartic for the poster. :lol:

Is the constant and deliberate use of logical fallacies such as ad hominem attacks and strawmen arguments constitute ruining the atmosphere?

Every case would obviously be judged on its merits, if you have concerns then I suggest you direct those concerns specifically to a mod or post those concerns so they can be reviewed.

In the past when people have had multis created (like Joffa and Heineken) parodying the user, they've been banned straight up.

But when it happens to afro a mod actually condones it. No, that's not cool.

Hi Mods,

I joined the forum recently and submitted my forum name as 'voice of reason' however it has been pointed to me that there is a forum user with the name 'Voice ofReason'....too similar I would think. How can I change my user name.
