These are just some guidelines and FAQ's all in one topic so that the boards don't get clogged with too many stickied threads.Searching the Forums
Would be great if people could search the forum or check the page before posting a new topic,so we don't have a heap of threads all on the same topic.This will keep the boards from clogging up.
The search function is on the right hand side of your page at the top.
Match Day Discussions
Every week during the NAB Cup and the Home and Away Season mods of the forums will create a thread for each individual game.
These threads are for all match related discussion,late outs,sub announcements,team announcements and for when a player has been injured during the game.
The reason for this section is so that the Player and Trade boards don't get clogged with threads that discuss the games and the players involved.
There is always some great discussions in these threads on game day.
So basically all the threads that people make asking a player to lift should actually be posted in match day boards rather than player and trade boards.http://forum.fanfooty.com.au/index.php/board,75.0.html

FAQ'sDual EmergenciesI put the E on both my players in the forward line which players score do I get?
If you have the E on 2 players in the one position,you will get there lower score of the 2 added to your score.
If 2 players don't play in that position and you have the E on 2 players,you will get both players scores
If only one of your emergencies play,you get that score providing you have a donut on field.
Captain LoopholeHow do I do the Captain Loophole
Let's say I have Tom Rockliff playing on Friday night, and he is my VC. Pendles is my C
Rocky scores 160 points, and I want to take that as my captain score
On my ruck bench, I have Max King, who is playing on Sunday, which is AFTER my VC plays
On the field in my rucks, I have Todd Goldstein, who is playing on Saturday, which is also AFTER my VC plays
To loophole Rocky as my VC, I need to sub Goldy to my bench, and King on to the field. I then have to make King my C, and Goldy my emg. Once the Dees match is over, I will get Rocky's score doubled, and Goldy will cover for King scoring zero
A few notes
- Make sure you plan all this out before the round starts, can sometimes get yourself into a situation where you don't have any emergencies left, or no-one on the field to sub off
- Make sure you set the correct player as your emergency. Sometimes people can leave it on a non-scoring player, or a rookie, and lose themselves more points than what they gain
- I usually have Goldstein as a permanent emergency with King on the field, so I never have to worry about subbing players on and off, makes things a whole lot easier. However this is specific to me, it really depends who you have as a non-scoring player and who you are subbing them with, and who your VC and C are
- Generally you should loophole a score that is higher than the average of your captain, but there can be exceptions depending on your league match, a player's history against a certain team, etc etc
General InformationCaptain Score Differences
Let's say you have Player A as VC, and Player B as C
Player A scores 151, so you loophole him
Player B then scores 184
YOU DO NOT LOSE 66 POINTS BY LOOPHOLING
As you can see, the difference here is only 33 points, which is the exact difference between Player A and Player B's scores. It does not get doubled.
Score when loopholing; 151 + 151 + 184 = 486
Score when NOT loopholing; 151 + 184 + 184 = 519
Something that is also helpful to other forums users is using a topic title that is relevant to your inquiry or to the subject you are posting about
For example Instead of saying "The man from the Saints with the 2 first names" just say Jack Steven instead as it helps other users to find if the player has already been talked about when they search the forumsAny thread that is started in the wrong section will be moved by the mods to the correct one.
Any topics started that are the same as another one will be merged by the mods
