-Perhaps y'all should consider "subject fatigue" when posting something. If there have already been a few posts made closely together on the rivalry between Trolls FC and Unicorns United, do people really need/want another one? Just think about it, because the more you post on the same tired subject, the more ~dramatic~ comments in those posts get as people run out of new things to discuss.

-I feel like a tool, reminding you when a lot of you already know, but there are a lot of new people so I will just keep bringing it up: don't post anything from Dirty Tackle, Kickette, or other similar blogs. If something is so funny/interesting/whatever you want to show it here, copy/paste the first line and link the rest back and maybe add a bit of your own to the post. Putting up whole articles though? Not nice at all. Consider this the last warning, because after this, there will be a "delete on sight" policy.

-Also not nice at all? HOTLINKING! Don't do it. It's not too much effort to save a picture/gif and upload it again to tinypic. Hotlinking messes up other people's bandwidth and especially here, with so many people putting up gifs, hotlinking makes it less fun for them to deal with and less likely to keep putting stuff up.

-I saw this somewhere else but I'm gonna repost it here for everyone to see:

Seriously? Some of you need to chill out. Is there a picspam/love-in post about a team you dislike? Move on, or make your own about your team; they don't need you crashing that party. Also, we all have varying levels of football knowledge, and there is no need to be on a high horse if you know a lot or to pretend like you know a lot if you don't.

-No, seriously, chill out. Ultimately we're all here because we like some aspect of this sport, and attacking each other over nothing is pointless and stupid and just makes people look like jerks. Bitchassness will get you nothing.

Anyway, in less than eleven hours there will be international football again! My goodness, I just can't wait.
