Thread starter #1
We all know that this season has been hard for everyone supporting the club, and we all like voicing our displeasure and suggesting ways the club could improve. However, the last couple of months have seen several threads hijacked by posters who derail threads by bringing up unrelated topics, most notably posting things like "Sack Dimma, Peggy and Gale" in threads that have nothing to do with the Football department or admin.

We mods feel that this is causing a divide amongst posters and is making the board more and more unpleasant to be part of. So as of right now, we have decided to implement a ban on posts in threads that are not relevant to the topic. We ask that all posters post their opinions in topics in relevant threads.

Any posts that are not relevant to the topic will be deleted and the poster will be banned from the thread for 7 days immediately and a warning given with infractions issued to serial offenders in escalating severity for those who continue to hijack threads.

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.

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.

Before you make 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
