I've changed the title so this can be used for talk about the forum rather than updates etc.

Try and keep this thread on topic though. It's primarily here (from now) to discuss the forum rules etc.

That's only because you spam it up everywhere you go! I've seen you. ;)

And 744 of those views are you pressing refresh anyway. :D

I think we should maybe steal LLM with a Monday, Friday and potentially Wednesday update threads? Just a place for people to update us where they are and how they're doing before and even after two seasons.

Whilst I hate the thought of not being able to post for two seasons outside of one thread (computer was wiped so have no save games - 10 season Arsenal game was deleted :'( ) I'm glad we have this forum - looks excellent.

Any chance, if I could offer proof that the only games I do are long term ones (e.g 8+ seaons) I could start a thread anyway? It'll take me over a month to do two seasons, especially as I'm moving house on the 31st July and won't be able to use my computer for about a week.

:thup:

CV - don't really like that idea, will just clutter up the forums imo. If I'm really that interested in someone elses thread I'll be reading their thread. Just my opinion though.

I got exeption from 2 season rule due to the fact my thread was already here and on GD.

We are discussing the two season rule, it could go away. Just follow the rules regarding this forum and you'll notice. :)

I'd be glad to see that, cheers for theupdate :thup:

Its a nono for real players/staff.

Including in spoiler tags with notifications in the thread title? I don't want to mention them, just asking the question to clear it up for others. :thup:

Ah good, so when I finally set up my thread, I can name the PA's of regens, and CA's to show how the regen youth of tomorrow are developing.

Two season rule?

Personally, I wouldn't bother.

As was pointed out previously, if someone posts once or twice and doesn't return, the thread will naturally disappear off the page.

And if you do go with the rule, there might be some users put off going that far back to update their new thread - after all, it could be quite a job for some, depending on how in-depth they go.

The page could get busy enough to demote good threads to the second page, but this shouldn't be a problem. Regulars will have the those threads subscribed, and I'd imagine newcomers would search (I can only dream!!!) for a specific team they had in mind.

That's my thoughts.

Purefun, shall we delete post #2 of this thread. Seems a bit pointless and violent to me.

Ah ok. Let's hope you can.

The two season minimum has now gone from the rules.

I propose a minimum amount of in-game time between updates though. Thoughts?

I think it is hard to put into writing.

I tend to keep to annual updates, but if anything particularly interesting happens I will post about it 'live', I just find it easier to keep a story going that way. This could mean a series of posts within a small space of time, but only because they are of interest and are worth posting.

I agree with dafuge :thup:

Although going over the top like Roolz does in the football manager thread in OTF shouldn't be allowed, e.g. posting after every goal. :D

I do match by match coverage as my game progresses slowly.

I would say max quarterly updates if not 2 month max

Maybe instead of a set time to do updates there should just be a minimum amount of words per update (eg. at least 50/100 words) too prevent people from writing short updates from every day in the game.

can I just get some advice on this. I've just started a career, will I have to wait until I'm two seasons into it (most likely some time in the next 10/11 days) or can I start posting now?

Post it now.

We'll review the two season rule after things settle down but for now you are free to start posting straight away.

So if I were to start a thread now, not get to two seasons by the time the rule was reintroduced, would my thread be closed until the second season was over?

What about aa rule for starting multiple threads? ie. someone comes in starts one about Arsenal, then Barca seconds later? Should there be a limit for the time between a new thread? I can see someone new (no offense to new people) coming in and starting 8 threads about 8 different saves

I'll close seven of them. :) And if Lyon is in it that one will be open for updates.

I'll think we'll play it by ear for now and see how it goes.

Abandoned threads can always be deleted so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Threads can be deleted? Out of interest, why are most threads closed instead of deleted then?

I'm trying to start my new game now, but the game has gone to a 'choose language' screen. But it doesn't have a confirm button?

Strange game...

Really glad to see this forum. I had a feeling it might when I saw the amount of Career posts.

Power to the people!! :D

I may post a South American one soon from my current game.

It shows users which sort of threads are allowed and which aren't.

Good evening everyone. Couldn't find this place. Haven't got FM09 installed at the minute so can not contribute in that sense, but look forward to having a nose around everyone else's careers.

Well done for setting this up!
