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.

    Welcome to the Cricket forum. To make everyone's online life that little bit easier here are some rules and guidelines for posting in this forum.


    The charter contains all the rules and guidelines. The charter may be updated at any time. Make sure you are up to date.
    This is a requirement, and ignorance is not an excuse. There are different charters for every forum on, and reading them will prevent any problems.

    Live streams

    In accordance with official policy of (see here), posting links to copyrighted or licenced streams will not be permitted. If it's not immediately clear that the stream is non-copyright, it will be deleted on sight by the moderators. Requests for PMs of streams will also be deleted on sight.

    Useful links

    Any Useful Links should be placed in the appropriate sticky only.

    Pimp your club!

    Any posts that advertise your club (nets, new players, big events etc) should be placed in the Pimp your Club thread. This is not stickied, but can be accessed through the link at the top of the Useful Links sticky. NOTE: this is for clubs only, any businesses using this will be instantly banned from the forum, and potentially reported as spammers.

    Sales of items including match tickets

    This is not permitted on the forum - please use instead. Any threads regarding sales will be locked & deleted on sight.

    There is no free speech!
    -This is a privately owned website. You do not have the right to say whatever you want on here. You are expected to obey the rules just like anyone else. Not following the rules will get you banned. It is very simple. You are allowed to discuss anything as long as it doesn't break the following rules.

    - 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.

    Phone numbers
    - Posting other people phone numbers is a bannable offence. You should never post your own number on a thread as it is not guaranteed to be safe.

    Posting in "rtrd"
    - Using txtspk n ur psts is cnsdrd been rlly stpd cuz u hv qwert kbd n ur pc so xpct 2 b wrnd. Please don't do this, this is not a bannable offence but repeat offenders might be "asked" to take a break from posting.

    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.

    Pointless Threads and Polls
    - Posting any pointless thread or poll will result in the thread being locked. You can be banned for this. Think before you post. If you don't have anything to say then don't bother posting a new thread. Please try to comment as much as you can on any threads you create. If you create a thread in which you ask people to contribute in, contribute first.

    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.

    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.

    Registering a New Account to Circumvent a Ban
    - This will get all accounts site-banned.

    General Posting Guidelines

    Please navigate around the forums before starting a new thread. Use the search function if you think something may have been posted before.
    Before you post a thread, consider the following:

    - Is what I'm about to post relevant, coherent and funny or in any way interesting?

    - Does it add to the forum or is it another thread which is taking up space?

    - Has it been posted before?

    -Is it suitable for this forum?

    Bans and/or disputes

    Any bans from this forum, or disputes arising from moderator actions on this forum, will be dealt with according to the Boards Disputes Resolution policy. Please familiarise yourself with this.
