Officiating Collective – 8 commandments. 

  1. Don't be a pest.

    • Remember these are real people you are talking to. Don't bait or provoke negative responses.

    • Likewise, don't feed trolls. Report posts instead of taking the bait.

  2. Don't be a spammer.

    • Posts with the sole aim of directing traffic to other sites are not allowed, whether commercial or non-commercial.

    • This includes drumming up readers for your own blog or other online content - post the full content of your own stuff with a link, and only in a relevant thread.

    • Our general test is to ask whether the user is here to partake in the community, which is good, or to get traffic for their own site or product, which is bad.

    • If in doubt, just ask.

  3. Don't be a stalker.

    • This includes tracking down and posting social media images, names, addresses and so on.

    • Exceptions will include information for contacting firms, government departments and politicians through their publicly listed details.

  4. No illegal content; respect copyright owners.

    • No illegal match video or audio streams or requesting of same from us or other users.

    • No drug use talk or similar. You might get away with contextual mentions or relevant discussion but otherwise leave it out.

  5. No sexually suggestive content, swearing, racist material, gore and injuries etc.

    • We have members from all walks of life, accessing the site from home and work. Be considerate.

  6. Don't break the site or do anything that interferes with normal use of the site.

    • Using scripts or bots to scrape content or hammer our database, like posts and so on is forbidden.

    • Don't manipulate or beg for likes to get your post on the home page.

  7. Don't be a whinger.

    • If you get a warning or a suspension don't fly off the handle. You'll only get yourself in deeper.

    • If you are not happy with your response from a moderator, contact Admin here.

  8. Removal/Suspension

    • Officiating Collective retains the right to suspend or cancel memberships as required without notice if any policy has been breached.
