Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.
Hello all! This is just a quick reminder to ensure that you are posting a new thread or question in the appropriate forum. The Feedback forum is overwhelmed with questions that are having to be moved elsewhere.

Australian Rules Football Charter - Read this before posting!

    Welcome to the Australian Rules Football board.


    Obviously enough this board is for discussing the game of Australian Rules Football and everything related.

    Don’t post about other sports here, we will move the offending threads to a more relative board. (International Rules and related GAA Topics Excepted, but any GAA Specific Threads will be moved).

    Do not post results in the subject line, repeat offenders will be barred. This is especially important as there may be delayed coverage of a "live" game being shown.

    Straying off topic will result in post deletion.

    Every poster must recognise the supreme talent that is Ben Cousins.

    Personal abuse, racism etc. will lead to bannings, there is no need for it, so don’t do it.

    If these rules aren’t clear please PM either Mod (Xavi6, DesF) and we will be happy to help.

    - Topics/posts that contain this will be both edited and locked. If you wish to buy add space, contact an admin.

    - Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted.

    - Posts that are just complete nonsense will be deleted. You do not need to post threads in multiple forums. You may ask a Moderator if you think the post is important.

    - Topics/posts containing such will be edited/deleted accordingly.

    - Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight. This is a severe offence. The minimum ban handed out will be one month. Permanent bans will also be handed out for this. If you are linking to an external website that might contain "newspaper" nudity or contains sexual reference, please make sure you mark it "Not safe for work"

    Off Topic
    - Posts that stray off topic will be edited/deleted, depending on their relevance to the topic at hand. People who ignore a moderator's request to stay on topic will be banned for a week.

    Personal Abuse
    - Posters who abuse others on here will be banned. Permanent bans will be handed out on a first offence if a moderator feels it is warranted. There is no argument on this one. Abuse someone and you will be banned. Calling someone an idiot is abuse. Don't attack the poster, attack the post.

    Arguing with a moderator
    - Do not argue with a moderator in a thread after they have given a warning or a ban etc. If you have an issue with a moderator's action then PM the mod in question. They will discuss it with you. You can then, if unsatisfied with the PM route, take things to Feedback if you want the wider community to comment, or to Helpdesk if you'd like only Smods or Admins to give the issue attention.

    Giving cheek or attitude to a moderator will get you banned.

    Do not under any circumstances complain about a mod on this forum. Do it either on PM or in Feedback.

    Reporting Posts
    Any thread or post that contravenes the charter should be reported. When reporting a post, make sure you have good reason. Someone disagreeing with you is not a troll, not all arguments are abusive etc. Abusing this feature is frowned upon.
