FAQ Please see the FIFA & Tournaments Board FAQ. Spam By its nature, this forum attracts more than its fair share of advertising spam. Please report spam using the report post button () so the mods can deal with it ASAP. Please note that whilst there are many 'informational' threads regarding travel, accommodation, etc. in this forum, posts designed purely to advertise will be removed at the moderators' discretion. Ticketing Threads Given the nature of this forum, there will be multiple threads about ticketing. The ticket swap threads on this forum are for established BigSoccer posters only. That means you must have some kind of history of contributing to regular (non-ticket) discussions. If you've registered and immediately start posting in ticket threads it will be assumed you are a scalper/tout. The following rules apply to ticket threads: 1-for-1 swaps only No cash sales, and no 'administration charges' or other costs No advertising to buy tickets No linking to scalping sites (even if you're not affiliated and are just trying to help out another poster) Please report all posts and posters not meeting these criteria. If scalpers approach you via PM (or someone appearing to be a legitimate swapper on the forum turns out to be a scalper after a PM/email exchange) please report it to one of the FIFA mods. Scalping or advertising scalping sites may result in an immediate ban from BigSoccer. Eye Candy This forum is often a source of posts such as "Girls of the World Cup", player beefcake threads, and photographs of fans. Please note, ALL posts in these threads must be PG rated. We will be enforcing this standard strictly and posts that don't conform will be removed and infracted. Spoilers Even though this forum does not deal directly with the results of games, spoilers are still a risk. A spoiler is something that reveals the result of a match without fair warning. All thread titles should be neutral and if a result is stated or implied within the content of a thread then the title must also include an [R]. (For a detailed explanation of spoilers click this link.) Posting spoilers during the World Cup may result in your posting privileges being restricted.
