Announcement

For your own good dont ignore.

We are starting to get more foolish members who think they are being clever by creating aliases to by pass bans in Forum and chat room.
Reason is why im calling them foolish is we will always have the upperhand ,we only used to keep banning these accounts and lengthining their main banned one which we now consider to soft .
SM will now start taking action against these members with in game punishment which some banned members are now finding out and not to happy.
SM will decide what type of action they deem appropriate which can be loss of manager rep so could result in you getting slung out of certain set ups .
Now hopefully with this announcement it may stop having to take this action because we dont want to see anyone losing rep /teams etc .

http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?t=37199

This link above if members had cared to read on rule board tells you how to go about appealing against any sort of punishment you occur .
Will find one for chat users on there as well .

So keep to it because if you think your being a clever clogs to get around a ban which at most lasts one day or a week ,is it worth getting kicked out of GM because of Rep and loosing favourite team that you love the most ,if your not a GM the same risks apply .

Choice is yours to make freely without pressure .

SM Filter system ( Rule 18 .)

Due to the complaints from members saying they get infractioned for starred out words and some members do not so SM Supervisors/Moderators need to be on the same wave length,to them its got to be one ruling only so confusion is not caused ,also with complaints recieved from members that some deem its ok to insult them with starred out words because there not actually shown,all these complaints have been taken into consideration and it has been decided that seems the filter removed these unwanted words ,then the poster will re edit and change words if not wanting infraction ,also dont play word games to beat the system,
eg.
its sucking fhit. The people who make these rules are cunning stunts.

Also these.
"£%^$£!*&"
@ssed
We are not stupid as well as the members that do these,there no accident they are in place of what are not allowed
I am sure there are many more correct allowed words that can take the place of these ,plus it keeps posts looking more neat and tidy .


From now Mods will give you a warning without loss of points ,if do it again you will lose points ,from Ist March you will not get a warning just loss of points ,only members we will look at to overturn are them that join in March to give them the same chance you members are being given to get your own house in order.









because from 1st March all starred words will recieve infraction .Please check rule 18.
Thank you .

Grievance with Moderators .

All members that have any problems/issues with Moderators closing / editing / deleting threads that they have posted etc or infractions given to them by Moderators then do not throw tantrums on the board itself via another thread or through PM system to the Moderator,it will not help your case if you want to have it re-looked at by SM Supervisors ,because Moderators are only doing what they have been instructed to do ,yes a thread may not have needed to be closed etc ,but closed /deleted threads can always be re-opened ,infractions can always be overturned ,so if your not happy with any of the above by SM Moderator ,i suggest you check all Forum rules /Guidelines and all rules for Rep system because these rule breakages also can result in infractions ,if you have not broken any of these then send your complaint through PM System to a SM Supervisor because we are your next port of call .
Please do not take it to the boards for any discussions on the rights or wrongs .
We will decide if we need to overturn any decision a Mod makes and that is through private consultation .

Infraction System

From Saturday 20/9/08 the SM Moderators will begin having the use of the Infraction system which up to now as only been used by SM Supervisors.
The way the infraction system works is you will get punished on type of post / rule breakage etc ,this is what you can be punished for .

Title
Warning for Rule Violation
Spammed Advertisements
Insulted Other Member(s)
Signature Rule Violation
Inappropriate Language
Instant Ban 10pts

I would also highly recommend members take a look at
" Forum reputation system thread"
so you learn how to use the Reputation system properly because any of these rules violated will also incur infraction penalty.



How infractions work.
There is a certain set ammount of point depending on which one so please be aware they are not just 1.
Also if you accumalate 10 then you will be auto banned ,each time you are given an infraction that point/points lasts for 10dys .
Also a SM Supervisor/Moderator may deem to give person/persons a instant 10pt ban if they think they need a cooling period for heating threads or out of control arguments ,again this can last from 1 hour up to a day then it will be removed.
Please realise this starts from Saturday 20/9/08 so no good complaining if someone got away with it before that date for the same reason you may have recieved one from this.
This forwarns you all so there is no excuse,ive shown you above what warrents a breakage of the system.

If a SM Supervisor/SM Moderator gives you an infraction then you will also at the same time receive a PM why and which one you deemed to have broken so you can check yourself .
Members that are not happy please do not send PM back to the Moderator that gave you it because the only way to appeal and have it reversed is through SM Supervisor ,and our decision will be final.
The best thing you can do before appealing is check you did not break any of the above ,because you will need a very good reason to have it overturned if you did.
Thank-you for your co-operation.

  • Men Behind Ball

    I know this will be an easy question for you more experienced managers but I need to know what exactly setting men behind the ball option will do.
    Does it mean all your players are behind the ball including strikers so therefore you would best utilise this by also setting counter attack and playing fast and direct for a quick counter attack ?

    I have used it in the following way especially when away from home and playing strong teams who I suspect will play an attacking style and have indeed been successful at beating much stronger teams:-

    FORMATION - 5-3-2 Sweeper

    TEAM STYLE - Tackling Style - Normal
    Mentality - Defensive
    Passing Style - Fast
    Attacking Style - Through the middle
    Tempo - Fast
    Pressing - All Over

    PLAY STYLE - √ Counter Attack
    √ Men Behind Ball
    √ Tight Marking
    X Play Offside
    X Use Play Maker
    X Use Target Man

    The actual players I used were/are as follows:-

    -----------Gk
    -----------CB
    ----RB-------------LB --------> or left footed CB and right footed CB
    RM/RB--------------LM/LB --------> or just RM and LM
    -----------DM
    ---------AM-AM -----------> or CM's
    ----------CF-F


    *NOTE*
    I have also tried pressing Own Half and passing style long ball which also seems to work.

    So then what I need to know is what exactly does men behind ball mean and what does it do to the team and to best use this option would you need to set certain other options and if so which ?

    Men behind ball is a great defensive option and it helps you keep as many bodies back to defend. However, this tends to get u less shots on the opponents goal wen you attack.

      Re: Men Behind Ball

      Shooter has it nailed,if you use Men Behind The Ball,you sacrifice some of your Attacking abilities like "shots on goal" so its your choice
      You need to play Defensive for it too work properly and i would play SHORT Passing so i have most of the possession,playing Direct is getting it up too your front men quickly but unless they are top quality or you play with 3 up front you are giving the ball away,same as Long Ball if you just hoof it up the pitch its just gonna come back again
