RULES OF CONDUCT / RULES OF THE GAME

Welcome to the FOOTBALL.IE community!

Each community is fun only when everyone is friendly with each other. A few rules and guidelines facilitate fair dealings with each other. If you're onboard, we're happy to make the FOOTBALL.IE community a friendly place for all people.

1. Your Community

The FOOTBALL.IE community allows like-minded football fans to communicate in a safe forum & share football related content.

2. Protection for you and others

In the FOOTBALL.IE community, all participants should feel comfortable and safe. After all, you do not want to be attacked, deceived or lied to. Negative types hurt a community and scare off new participants. This, of course, reduces the chances of meeting really exciting people. That's why we carefully watch what's happening in the community. We comply with legal requirements and prevent upsetting situations for individual participants or even for the entire community. Therefore, anyone signing up to the community is committed to not deceiving or damaging others. Most importantly, children and adolescents should be protected.

3. Respect!

You can help make sure the FOOTBALL.IE community is enjoyable for everyone: do not write, show or say anything that offends others. Please respect the boundaries of others and in turn they will do the same with you. If someone insults or attacks you, please ignore it instead of dwelling on it for a long time.  It may not always be easy for you to do the same, but it is much more effective if you ignore the culprits.

4. Imagine!

For the other participants to get to know you better, you should choose photos and videos that say as much about you as possible. Please do not post pictures, comics or anything that might be offensive to others. Texts, URLs, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses etc. are forbidden on all pictures. Remember that all pictures and videos really belong to you and no other person has the copyright. If your images show other people, you should in any case have previously agreed that they are on the FOOTBALL.IE community.

5. Welcome

Welcome to the forum! We always have an open ear for you. So, if someone harasses you, annoys or insults you, just report it in the forum. Of course, this also applies if you have a question about the FOOTBALL.IE community. If you have any good ideas or suggestions - go ahead and post them in the forum.

6. Your access data is classified information!

Do not share your access data with anyone. This will ensure you protect yourself from abuse and your profile stays safe.

8. Share your knowledge and experience in the FOOTBALL.IE community

Knowledge is great if you can share it with others.  If someone asks a question and you know the answer, be sure to share your knowledge with them. 

9. Look for a meaningful subject line in the forum.

The subject line documents every discussion or topic. If your headline adequately represents the topic, the headline will ensure you draw in the right people who have a similar interest in your post.

10. Pay attention to the legal regulations

Do not post anything that is against the law. This includes, of course, texts, images and videos that are protected by copyright. Furthermore, this includes posts that are harmful to children, inhumane, undignified or of defamatory content! This also includes links to corresponding pages. 

11. Private remains private!

Would you like someone to share what you wrote under the seal of secrecy? Certainly not. Private messages should also remain private.

12. Be careful with naming names!

Think carefully about whether you need to publish names or personal data of others. This can be quite uncomfortable for those affected. If you have a legal dispute with another person, it is forbidden to mention the name in connection with the facts.
