    No doubt, but if it's castigated and frowned upon in such a vicious and unnecessary manner then it will drive writers away, regardless of how many people read it. As has been proven in my conversations with other writers and I think that's worth mentioning when someone asks about opinion of certain styles, of course I could just toe the line and pretend that said bullying and harrassment doesn't exist, but....

    im not in the mood for an argument sorry as any one can tell your fishing for one,

    and its not frowned upon in anyway, some people prefer not to read them some do.
    Considering i do a monthly update and i get close to 10 views for every post i make i think its going well for me

    Fishing for an argument? Why bother? What you actually mean is that you aren't in the mood for reasoned discussion unless the end product is someone agreeing with you.

    However, since you're jumping ship so as to avoid an adult conversation, i'll finish my tuppence worth. I disagree, but I respect you're opinion.

    My thought on it was that I enjoy doing game by game atm. However, I used to do a 4 update season in my Empoli GPTG thread. End of August, End of Dec, End of Jan and End of season.

    As anyone who puts their career up, I like people to read it. However I don't want to bore people with a game by game so if the majority would prefer a 4 post season, I'll happily bow to that.

    So in essence, both Elrithral and acidmonkey gave me the answers I was looking for!

    I sincerely hope that as a moderator of this forum that I haven't let my opinions been taken out of context.

    I've mentioned before that I'm not keen on reading game by game updates, but the last thing I want to do is to put people off from writing them as they have just as much potential to be popular as any other style.

    If you fancy PMing me with a few names, particularly when it comes to the incidences of bullying, I'll gladly look into it.

    I don't think they have dafuge. Both you and I gave our preference on how we like to write and read updates (after all, that was the question posed right?) but as you say, and as I have said, any kind of update style is more than acceptable and has as much potential to be popular as any other.

    As far as 'bullying' is concerned here...since being in this forum from day one, I have never, ever seen any kind of 'bullying' in this forum whatsoever.

    daf, not you, but I have no doubt that comments such as this;

    Remind me to place you back on my ignore list. I have no idea why I removed you
    in the context of a discussion on what people prefer and a simple difference of opinion, leads to comments like this;

    I just feel the style I've adopted (which, incidentally, was inspired by my thorough enjoyment of Elrithral's thread) needs a little defending here.
    Or this;

    What I'd like to know is why certain people feel that it is up to them to try and dictate what should be considered a worthy career update? Why is it up to you? I can understand a moderator having these powers, but surely the rest of us are all equals round here?
    I think some people need to be reminded that this is the case, we went from me asking if monthly updates really took that long to write and in doing so promoting one style of update to someone making an obvious attempt to belittle another user. Is it any wonder that some members think monthly updates came out in a negative light?

    Like I said earlier, i've spoken to three regular users of this forum who were very disappointed with the way things turned out in the above discussion, one wasn't sure if he would continue his update as a result of the attitude towards monthly updates and has made only one update since then.

    We can all nit pick and choose which quotes to highlight to try and portray somebody in a bad light. What you fail to highlight is my actual opinion on the discussed matter which i've said numerous times.

    This is why I wanted this forum created...to welcome all sorts of writing and threads. Other forums have strict rules and this provides an outlet for people who wish to do things differently. Like I said, I prefer writing and reading threads with 2 or 3 updates, but that's just me. You prefer writing and reading monthly updates which is just as acceptable. That's the beauty of this forum.
    Hopefully this forum caters for all kinds of threads. As you said, if you look in a thread and it's not for you, you don't have to keep going back. As dafuge mentioned, it would get a bit dull if we all had identical looking threads and updates .
    There is no right or wrong way to post a career update. Obviously people have their own preference in how to read/write updates but this should in no way dictate to others how theirs should be presented.
    You can write it however you want acidmonkey. Which ever way you choose will be more than fine, it's whatever you feel most comfortable with. That's the great thing about this forum . I was just giving my two cents as everyone else has .

    There's a difference between stating an opinion of someones behaviour and telling someone that you will go out of your way to ignore them.

    One thing though, since you replied to my previous post you obviously didn't put me on ignore, which only serves to highlight that the comment in question was intended as a put down, rather than a statement of intent.

    Look, i'm just giving my opinion based on conversations I have had, there's no point discussing it because our opinion differs and we aren't going to agree, but I think it was worth mentioning because of the impact I believe your comments may have had.

    This isn't what you're doing here. You're telling him what he's doing/thinking ("What you actually mean is that you aren't in the mood for reasoned discussion unless the end product is someone agreeing with you") when you in fact have no idea why he doesn't want to discuss the subject further.

    Quote Originally Posted by Elrithral View Post

    Is this not belittling him by suggesting he doesn't want an adult conversation?

    Another conclusion in which you've jumped to. I did actually put you on ignore but was curious as to how this thread was going and since I couldn't see your comments I decided to remove you to see them.

    As i've quoted for you...four quotes actually out of the many responses i've given, my responses and opinions in no way said that one style of update was better than the other. How this has an impact on how others feel about update styles bemuses me .

    Please don't condescend.

    How am I right and you're wrong? I didn't realise it was a right or wrong discussion. As far as i'm concerned there is no right or wrong way to produce an update. As i've stated countless times, any kind of update is acceptable in this forum.

    I just don't take kindly to false accusations i.e the statement that my opinions affected how people post when in fact i've given no indication as to a 'better' style, therefore putting off writers/readers posting and an accusation of bullying.

    Maybe it's better if we avoid each other from now on.

    Christ almighty, all I was doing was ending the conversation rather than keep it going and going round in circles, but even that is met with a horrible attitude. There's something seriosuly wrong with this place if that's an acceptable attitude towards someone trying to end a discussion that has gone too far!

    As for false accusations, my opinion was based on discussion with a number of CU users who weren't impressed with your attitude, I didn't just pluck it out of thin air. CU has lost users, myself included now, because of your attitude in this discussion and that's fact, it was discussed elsewhere, in private.

    I've raised my concerns with the daf, i'll leave it in his very capable hands, but for now i'll say goodbye to CU and give up on a very well received update because of this conversation. And you say that your attitude hasn't affected people's opinion of the general opinion of monthly updates? Do me a favour.

    Anyways, that's that and i'm gone, so you got what you wanted.

    How is my attitude any different to others in here. An opinion was asked which people prefer (not which is better). My preference is seasonal as are...

    How mine differs from those opinions and how my attitude has affected people's opinion of the general opinion of monthly updates quite frankly puzzles me . It seems that i'm being singled out for expressing a common preference, which is then deduced to be the reason for people leaving.

    I started an Everton save on a game by game basis but found that I didn't have enough time to add the updates like that. I am now contemplating if it's worth posting in seasonal updates. I would like to post about my career as I think it's pretty interesting but am not sure if I should open a new thread or continue on from the old one, any suggestions are more than welcome.

    That's what I was thinking I got to Feb with the game by game stuff so I could maybe write out a round up of that season. I would like to write a pre-season update stating what changes I was making and then a round up of the season. The thing that bothers me is I do write for myself but like to have some feedback and since it's been so long maybe people would not be interested in it if you understand where I am coming from.

    I agree. It's great to see reading counts go higher every time, just sometimes you wish someone would offer a little critique of things that could be better.

    I totally agree dafuge but it does become a little irritating when accusations are being made against me which have no basis for any kind of truth whatsoever. Don't I have a right to ask why these accusations are being made? Or do I just accept the false accusations?

    I am following your threads, it's just sometimes you don't want to write KUTGW or something. It is nice to wake up though and read Nobby's comments...they do make me laugh! A posting style all of his own .

    I'm in 2 minds whether to continue my European adventure, currently with Galatasaraay. If I started a new game and wrote it up, it would be either with Shrewsbury Town, a Blue Square North/South Team (probably Telford), or a level 10 team

    Out of the four options, which would be the most popular choice for people to read
    - Continue the Galatasaraay game and continue trying to conquer all areas of Europe
    - Start with my club Shrewsbury with the new data update, to see if I can turn them into a massive force
    - Start with a Blue Square club, probably Telford, and see how far I can take them and how my management career progresses
    - Or enter a area totally alien to me, Level 10 and just see what happens

    I would be happy to do any of those four, and write them up, just wondering what people would be most interested in and rather read?

    Have you been able to expand this new stadium to more than twice its original size?

    I think my first stadium was expanded to exactly double. Far too early to tell with the second one

    That's what I seemed to remember too. Then I noticed mine too was exactly twice the size. So I'm worried now...

    I'm already feeling the pinch from the small stadium. It will be a real drag when we establish ourselves properly in the top.

    I did start out with a 2500 capacity stadium though, which apparently couldn't be expanded. Crying shame they didn't build bigger when they first did, cause now it's going to bottleneck our finances the next two decades

    Ah right, in that case, no. You can't get the league graphs for previous season either.

    Just on the off chance has anyone heard of the picture you upload for your manager profile when adding a manager in-game disappearing? My one seems to have gone for no apparent reason

    Edit - I load an older save and its still there in that one

    Edit v2 - Nevermind, reloaded my current save and it re-appeared. Odd.

    Yeah, I've had this as well. I don't know why it happens. It's decided to appear most of the time now.

    Hmm I can't remember in all honesty, I can't think why I would have as I've just used the regular light skin the whole time but it hasn't disappeared since that day so must have just been one of those things.

    From the 'READ ME FIRST' thread:

    How to Post a Screenshot
    • While in FM, press Alt and F9
    • A picture will be saved to a screenshots folder, in the FM10 folder in your documents
    • Upload the image to an image hosting website such as Photobucket
    • Post the direct Url to the image here.
    How to Add Links

    At the top of the forum, go to 'quick links' then 'edit options'. At the bottom, select 'enhanced interface' and save the changes. This will give you access to the extra posting tools that make it easier to post links. Once you've done this, highlight the word you wish to turn into a link, then use the link button (looks like a little globe) to paste in the direct Url to your screenshot.

    ALT+F9 has been the best improvement from FM08 onwards in my opinion. So much easier to gather those screenshots needed to keep trail of your developing youngsters or to update on your progress.

    MeLikeFM - that's pretty bad although I had a similar idea with Annan nanananana

    Paul - it's got potential with all the alliteration but i'm not too sure.

    Nicknames: Black and Golds (got me thinking about the Sam Sparro song) and Galabankies.

    If you put [noparse][/noparse] either side of your BB code it stops the code. You can then show the code as it should be [url=link]Text here[/url] without having to substitute the brackets.

    Its useful if trying to describe it to somone with little computer knowhow.

    The only way around it for me, Gundo, was to make my own screen and save it. Then it uses that as the default.

    I'm considering doing a French career game, loading L1 through CFA and working my way up from the bottom. I do have a couple of questions:

    1.) One thing that I've never seen a full & firm answer to is African player eligibility for French leagues. In some/many/few cases, African national do not count toward the "non-EU maximum" that the French leagues have. Is that former French colonies only? All African countries? Are there any other nations with a similar agreement? I would like to be sure to load some of those players into the active database for this new save, but don't want to add many if they're part of the limited non-EU rule.

    It would be helpful to know a player's eligibility before you sign him. After you sign him, of course you can see the FGN status or not, but it's too late!

    2.) I've read that the CFA is not playable from the begining, but that some teams do become eligible to manage. How does this work?

    3.) Are all Ligue 2 teams professional? How about Championat Nacional? I assume CFA is all amateur or reserve teams, right?

    4.) Any other suggestions about setting up the player database / game as I'm planning? Other French hints or tips?

    Thanks!

    Not sure about point 1 but

    2) Check the editors section and see if anyone has done a full french update for lower leagues. May be there if you look
    3) See above
    4) Load max players to get good lower league realism or at least large

    French league is cool. I had a St Etienne game years ago. One of the best games i did. I just raided the U19 and 21 sides every year for the best youth tallent. French league always has good regens

    1) from what i understand its only the french Colonies who dont count as non-EU players so thats:
    French Guiana · Guadeloupe · Mayotte · Martinique · New Caledonia · Réunion · Saint-Martin
    it "may" include former french colonies but not too sure which would be Algeria but not sure on that

    2) CFA teams are only manageable if they are relegated from the National

    3) Ligue 1 & 2 are seen as the professional leagues so national and CFA seem to be Semi-pro im guessing.

    4) Load all players from France and all the French colonies, will help no end after that its upto you

    Good Luck in France

    I'm considering starting one but will go very in detail with matchdays and preferably with Everton as I support them or do you think I should go someone further down and possibly level 10?
    EDIT: If I done a level 10 one I'd probably do 6 month updates as opposed to1 match, 1 update

    I write my updates for myself and to hopefully inspire other people to start similar games or at least give them an interesting career to read. This got me thinking does it put people off reading about a career of someone who manages a big team? Most career threads seem to be journeyman games or starting really low down in one country to work their way to the top. I have moved to Real Madrid on my save would this put people off reading?

    Its just as interesting working with a top team. You just have different expectations and pressures. I look forward to reading it.

I prefer being those smaller clubs and building up but my save is a career save, staying with small clubs wouldn't be much of a career progression would it. Thats why I'm trying to stick with mid-tabled sides at the moment, then in 5 seasons maybe move to a 'large' club, the likes of River/Boca/Chelsea/Arsenal...then after making them dominant, move onto a smaller mid tabled club and start over, or take a fallen giant, maybe a former premiership club from league two back to where they belong. How ever your career pans out, it shoudn't really matter to anyone else as long its what you want from your game.

    Your updates are great and long may it continue.

    I tend to ignore the ones where somebody starts at a big club. If somebody is managing a Real Madrid or Manchester United because they've earned the right, I'm interested in it. If they start off there then I'm not. Unless they are Alex Ferguson, but why would he be playing the game?

    Addendum: I remember the days when football manager games made you start in Division Four.

    Also the days when you had a virtual telephone for calling other managers to make transfer bids

    Yes, but even that didn't exist in the very beginning.
