Forum Rules and Posting Etiquette

Welcome to the Tactics and Training forum, here are a few rules and guidelines for you to follow, to make the forums a better place for everyone J ;

Please be as descriptive as possible in thread titles and posts. This makes it easier if you are trying to ask for help, or posting generally.

Any duplicate threads will be closed, if you are unsure use the search function and be sure to look further down this post for all links.

Threads that contain swearing or abuse of any kind will be closed at the moderator’s discretion.

Threads that are just a moan about the game will also be closed, unless it’s done in a constructive manner. I.e. provide examples, stats, and screenshots.

Do not post in caps

Threads asking for tactics or training schedules will be closed. Use the search function.

Threads asking 'what is the best' for either tactics or training will be closed.

Do not use text speech as not everyone has English as their first language.

Also make sure you post in English at all times.

If someone makes a mistake no flaming, instead try and offer assistance and offer them advice, or point them in the right direction.

Abuse of other forum members will not be tolerated. If you disagree with someone fair enough but try and be constructive when giving feedback. Do not simply post something along the lines of ‘you’re wrong’ without trying to back up why that person maybe wrong.

Everyone on the forums will be treated the same.

Try to remember that not everyone’s first language is English. So if someone makes a mistake or their English isn’t that good try and steer them in the right direction.

Don’t get involved in arguments, if you think someone has an issue with you take it to a PM or send one of the forum moderators a message about it. You can also use the report function on a post for such issues.

No linking to offsite sites with guides/articles/tactics/training. The only way that is acceptable is if you post the guide/article/tactic/training on these forums and then link back to the other site. Any threads that don't adhere to this rule will be closed.

If a thread is closed by a moderator please don’t make the same thread again, as it’ll be closed and a warning will be given.

Threads will be closed at the moderator’s discretion. If they don’t leave a reason as to why it was closed then send a PM and ask why. But we will always try and leave a reason and steer you in the right direction.

Once you've save the downloaded training schedules to the [i]"schedules"[/i] folder, go to the [b][i]"Training"[/i][/b] screen, you'll see a large tab to the center left, with [i]"Players / Coaches / Schedules"[/i].
