Opposition Posters – Etiquette

We are an open board to supporters of opposition teams and you are more than welcome to visit and have a respectful discussion with our posters. However, you must do so respectfully. You are a guest on our board, so you must follow our rules; which includes

  • No trolling or baiting
  • No abusing our posters
  • No posting in threads with “No opposition poster tags”
Richmond posters:

Please be aware that you are not exempt from site rules just because you are responding to an opposition poster. If an opposition poster comes wanting genuine discussion, either respond respectfully or don’t at all. Abuse of opposition posters wanting respectful discussion will not be tolerated and will be treated in the same manner as if it was a Richmond poster.

Thread Derailing:


It is simple. Keep threads on topic. If the thread is about Dustin Martin, please only use it to discuss Dusty. Anyone who makes off topic posts will have their posts deleted. Anyone constantly derailing a thread will be banned from that thread for a week.

Permanent thread bans may be issued to posters who continually hijack threads.

Please understand we do not want to "suppress free speech". We just want this board to run as smooth as possible, and not have threads constantly denigrating into off topic debates and make it a lot more relevant.

If a post is not relevant to the topic of the thread, report it.



Creating new threads:

Before creating a new thread, please check to see if there is already a thread on the topic, you don't need to make a new thread every time an idea pops into your head.

If you have an original and interesting idea then by all means create a thread but remember we are trying to keep the forum readable and if new or old members come on and it's just a mess of threads they will quickly be turned off.


If you have any questions or issues our PM box is always open


Thank you,

The Richmond Board Mod Team.

We have noticed a rise in the number of posts using slurs and general crude language on the board over the past few days and wish to remind everyone of the below big footy rules:

1.Basic Conduct and Etiquette - Bigfooty

1A) Race, Ethnicity and Nationality:
Race, Ethnicity, Nationality or any other abuse directed at a player’s or posters ethnic, cultural or religious background will not be tolerated and remains subject to disciplinary measures from BigFooty’s administrators or site owners.

1B) Sexual Orientation:
As per rule 1A, abuse with regards to sexual orientation is also forbidden. Comments about a person’s sexual preference will be strictly prohibited and any such person who breaks this rule will be subject to disciplinary measures from BigFooty’s administrators or site owners.
Any breach of these guidelines will result in infractions given immediately.

Please keep this in mind whilst posting and if in doubt don't post it. If you are unsure or seek clarification on any aspect of the Big Footy rules our pm's are always open.

Thanks for your understanding

The Richmond Board Mod Team.

Hi all,

a reminder on the following rule:


1.Basic Conduct and Etiquette - Bigfooty

1A) Race, Ethnicity and Nationality:
Race, Ethnicity, Nationality or any other abuse directed at a player’s or posters ethnic, cultural or religious background will not be tolerated and remains subject to disciplinary measures from BigFooty’s administrators or site owners.
We are all facing the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic, some of us stick at home, somes jobs may be on the line, some may have been directly affected themselves. To all those people, I wish you all the best and hope you safely get through this tough time.

However, be warned that it is NOT an excuse to be racist. Racism towards those of Asian or any nationality will not be tolerated.

Thanks,

The Mod team

Hi all,

There has been an increase in mod bashing/whinging/complaining on here lately. Please note that this is against site rules. If you have an issue with a mod decision, weather it be here or another board, please contact the Admins. Do not publicly air your grievances.


  1. Don't be a whinger.
    • If you get a warning or a suspension don't fly off the handle. You'll only get yourself in deeper.
    • Make your case clearly and respectfully and you will be listened to. Chuck a tanty and you might get the flick.
    • If you are not happy with your response from a moderator, contact Admin here.

Thanks,

Richmond Board Mod team

Hi all,

Just some clarification on what can and can't be posted in terms of screenshots/posts from other boards:

What is ok:

- Quotes without the username tag.
- Screenshots with the username and avatar of the user cropped out

What is NOT ok:
- Screenshots or quotes with the username of a poster showing - this just invites trouble.
- Screenshots or quotes of you trolling other boards or other posters reactions to you trolling, regardless of whether usernames are cropped out. We don't want that sh*t here.

Thanks.
