less than 24 hours until kickoff for the world cup!! i think that's enough time to loop waka waka about 430 times more? here are some quick mod notes to go over while you figure out how to pin back your jersey, contemplate which pubs to go to and if face paint will be added to your morning makeup routine. hmmmmmmmm...
UNO: the world cup tag we've been using now will be soon renamed to "world cup 2010: pre-tournament". the "world cup 2010" tag was born basically when the community was and since then it has collected hundreds of entries so we're archiving all the build-up posts to keep things organized. so if you've forgotten if it was france or ireland that ended up qualifying, search under the renamed tag.
we also have a new set of tags for the world cup: they are self explanatory so please take note & use accordingly
world cup 2010: match
world cup 2010: results
world cup 2010: picspam
DOS: the community is gonna go through a growth spurt this month, meaning more members and more traffic and more posts and more comments and more prayer circle icons and so on. a lot of people use photobucket for hosting photos, but bandwidth is very limited for free accounts. please don't use it in your entries because your bandwidth will be eaten up within a day and no one wants to see that darned photobucket logo, and you probably won't want to wait a month for your account to reset! tinypic or imageshack are your safest choices.
TRES: spoilers!!! normally we don't have any rules for these during the league season, but for the world cup tournament, we want you to use a cut for all scores and results. we're not gonna be too strict on this but please use your best judgement on what is a spoiler and what is just news. think twice before you post the score to a semi final in size 7 font and learn the art of the lj-cut!
CUATRO: posting shit from other blogs. try not to do it!!! we made a note on this ages back and it seems like a bunch of people have forgotten/don't know about this rule. you can most definitely share the stuff you find from your favourite footi blogs, but don't take content word for word even if you do include a source. if there's a brilliant post you really need share then simply post a link. we're considered a footi blog too so yanking entries from others ain't right! examples of some blogs are: kickette, unprofessionalfoul & dirtytackle. this rule doesn't apply for news articles, but just always remember to cite your sources!
CINCO: the mobile version of livejournal has been upgraded for a while, and this is just a reminder that we're at http://m.livejournal.com/read/user/ontd_football. bookmark this on your phone to keep track of us on the go!!!!!!!
SEIS: aaaaaand don't forget to visit these cool dudes on lj
