    1: The Big Footy Essendon Board is not the place for you to troll. A first offense will result in infraction points, a second offense will result in a permanent ban..


    2: While we all enjoy some light hearted ribbing and some enthusiastic football discussion, please keep it light hearted. If you take it too far a first offense will result in infraction points, a second offense will result in a permanent ban.


    3: The Essendon Club Board is mainly for the Essendon supporters, and while supporters from other clubs are welcome and encouraged, Essendon supporters will be given far more leeway than opposition supporters. No name calling of Essendon supporters OR Essendon players/Club Officials etc will be tolerated. A first offense will result in infraction points, a second offense will result in a permanent ban.


    4: The Moderators on the Essendon Club Board are the sole judges in any of the above matters and may at their discretion hand out any penalties they feel to be appropriate and their decision is final.


    5: If a thread started doesn't get many replies, don't be surprised to see it deleted from now on, purely to clean it up and keep it flowing.

    6: Constructive criticism and a healthy questioning of the Moderators is welcome, however outright criticism and 'bashing' of Moderators will not be tolerated. The weight of the infraction is up to our discretion.


    7: Before creating new threads, check for an existing similar ones. If you ignore this, your thread will be merged anyway; repeatedly ignore this, your thread will be deleted, and you will be infracted.

    8: Be aware that there are strict guidelines in regards to quoting any sources outside of BigFooty. This board is no different, and warnings are no longer being given.

    9: Posting of any infraction received is an automatic red card.

    In light of the current environment in the AFL world, and the impending reports, press conferences and continuing innuendo, we would like to stress the following. Please post with caution.

    If you're an Essendon supporter and frustrated with the last six months, we understand. We would like to tell you that we know, and we also have the full support of the admin and super mods. Dispite popular opinion, this has always been the case.

    We all understand and appreciate the emotion involved. We know that you will need a place to vent, and possibly, grieve. This board is your home and your sanctuary. You are still governed by the same rules, both on BigFooty and as a citizen of society. If you break these rules, no matter what the reasons, you leave us no choice but to act accordingly.

    If you're an opposition supporter, please take note. If you post in the ASADA thread, or any other thread on this board, think carefully. I repeat this in case you missed it. We have the full support of the admin and super mods on this issue. If you post anything that can be taken as a troll, decide to troll this board by liking posts, or break the normal rules of the site, you will be dealt with accordingly.

    The festival of red cards has been issued.

    A note to all opposition posters: read and understand the above.

    If you alias up, your troll account will be nuke and your other account(s) will be red carded.

    A note to Essendon supporters: do not hesitate to tag/PM me or another super/admin if needed.

    I hope people respect the nature of the team board, especially with judgment about to be announced, but if they don't, and you need something dealt with, contact us.

    I'd just like to emphasise a few additional points.

    Opposition input in every other thread on the Essendon board continues to be warmly welcomed. However, if you overstep the line and start trolling the drugs issue, it won't end well for you. Just don't do it.

    Essendon posters- if you encounter a troll, please do not quote the post and bite back. Report it and wait for it to be dealt with.

    Apart from the fact that ultimately you are giving a troll what they want by biting back, you also make the process of dealing with the trolls much more time consuming for us, because we have to clean up the entire mess, not just the original troll.

    We also welcome being called out in a thread if a situation needs rectifying. If you do so and we don't appear to be around, call out any of the following Admin and Super Moderators (aside from myself, of course) and they can also help:

    grizzlym
    Fred
    Ant_
    Messenger
    Caesar


    The Essendon Moderators are committed to keeping this board as a desirable place to post for Essendon supporters at what is, to be frank, a pretty ordinary time to be an Essendon supporter. We take this seriously, and Admin and Supers back our wish for this.

    Thanks, everyone. :)

    Just feel I need to emphasise the following point again:

    Yesterday, we had two trolls come and disturb the peace, and cleaning up the mess was made significantly more time consuming by the fact that we weren't just deleting two posts, we were deleting the two troll posts plus the posts of the twelve people who bit back.

    As I said, report, report and report. Please.
