Hi all,

It is vital that everyone on the forum is fully aware of the forum rules, and makes every effort to ensure that there is no aggression between members, insulting or defamatory posts are made towards both members or non members.

The Moderator team will be clamping down on bad behavior, editing any posts that break forum rules. Any posts which include defamatory comments will be removed immediately without prior warning and the user will be contacted by an Admin.

We want a friendly, family atmosphere on the forum which will help attract new members both young and old.

If anyone has any problems or concerns, then feel free to contact my staff at anytime.

Forum Rules

Threads/Posts must be civil and tasteful.
-Threads/posts considered to be offensive to other members, or considered as bad taste may be edited/deleted by one of the forum moderators. While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters

Abusive Comments
-TheFootballFactory will not tolerate insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts towards any other member of the forum. If a member does abuse another member then they will be issued a warning, along with details of why they have been warned. If a member repeats the offense, this will result in a permanent ban.

-If however, you feel that you have been unfairly treated, then contact a member of the Admin team, who will review the situation.

Post Quality
-Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such. Also text-talk is not permitted on the forum. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.

-Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.

-We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.

-Although a lot of people are extremely broad-minded and will not be bothered by the use of any known swear word, there are those amongst us who find swearing unacceptable. We have a swear filter to automatically censor most common swear words, but, as it is possible to circumvent this by using similar characters, we sometimes have to manually censor some words. Obviously, some words are worse than others, but generally speaking, if a word is in the swear filter, it is deemed to be unacceptable for use on these forums.

-Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.

-Discrimination is not tolerated on this forum. Discrimination can take the form of the use of specific words or phrases or can be in the form of a general attitude towards an individual or group of people. For example, making a statement that all black people are criminals is discrimination on the basis of race, is illegal and is unacceptable. Discrimination can be on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation or political persuasion.

Promotion of other sites.
-Members are not permitted to promote other sites , without the permission of a member of the Admin team. If a member is found to promote/Spam the site with another site then they will be warned/banned. All posts will be removed.

Age Range
The Football Factory is a public forum, open to all ages; therefore posts need to be respectful. No images or URL of a pornographic nature are welcome and will be removed. Bad Language needs to be kept to a minimum. If a post is found to contain this, then moderators have the ability to edit/delete the post.

-If a member is found to have multiple accounts, then these accounts will be removed and suspended.

-Warnings will be issued if a member breaks these simple rules, or causes a disruption to the forum. Warnings can be issued for the following...

* Text Talk
* Short/Pointless Replies/Overuse of Smilies
* Off-Topic Posting
* Personal Insults
* Strong Language
* Racist Comments
* Spamming

-In serious cases, a warning will not be appropriate and the account will be suspended for a period of time.

-If a member has a complaint against another member/moderator/admin or a post/thread, then contact myself in the report forum by just posting a New Thread with the heading "contact me" and just say, I need to speak with you XFiLeS, and I will contact you straight away. please do NOT PM me. Complaints made public on the forum will be removed. Failure to do so in the correct manner may result in you receiving a warning.

Banned Members
-If a banned member wishes to return to The Football Factory they can do so in the Return Request forum in the Information Center only accessible by Admin and Banned members, here you can request a return to the site to Admins

-The Football Factory will do its best to attempt to keep all messages on this forum respectful and within the forum rules. While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

The Staff of The Football Factory reserve the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread for any reason.

  Example of a post by Writers Group
Posted by: XFiLeS - 05-06-2019, 12:38 AM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

I would like to see all post looking similar to this one below:


Fenway Sports Group, the owner of Liverpool FC has issued a public apology to fans who were compelled to walk out of the Stadium during Saturday's match against Sunderland.

[Image: Liverpool-v-Stoke-City-012.jpg]

Around 10,000 fans left in the 77th minute of Liverpool's match in protest leaving the owners stunned. It took just 4 days after that for the club to abandon the ticket-price structure which was 13 months in the making.

This is seen as a positive step in an attempt to repair the relationship between the fans and the owners.

Ticket prices have now been frozen at these levels for the next couple of season. A victory for the fans?
