Overall, please keep your chat relevant to the game going on at the time, and respect other posters, many of whom are school-aged. If you follow those two principles and stay premium, everything should be tickety-boo. Specifically, breaking the following rules is grounds for banning:
- No abuse of other posters. Friendly banter is okay, but please do not be nasty.
- No bogus info. This includes posting rubbish rumours. Be aware that if you play the game of starting or perpetuating rumours, even if you heard something on the radio or saw it on TV yourself, you could be banned for it temporarily, as the mods aren't all-knowing. To be safe, please cite your source if you are repeating a report from elsewhere. The mods (especially m0nty) have no sense of humour about this rule.
- No spoilers from other games. If people want to hear about other games, they will go to the relevant pages. Please respect others in this matter.
- No links to live streams of AFL games. There are no legal live streams of games to Australian users, so please don't ask for them, and especially don't respond to requests.
- Talking about issues not related to the game at hand is strongly discouraged. This applies even during in-game breaks. Some games are more exciting than others, so attention may waver somewhat in junk time of a boring match, so some leeway is given in certain circumstances. Nevertheless, please do not abuse this rule. Understand that you leave yourself open to be banned if you use the chat to talk to your friends and ignore the game. That's what IM is for.
- Talking about other sports is even more strongly discouraged, and is often the cause of a ban. This is not a soccer or basketball site. Talk about Australian football, please.
- Please do not try to conduct an ongoing discussion with mods about who should be banned, or about banning policies. There is a Feedback forum for such discussions.
- There is a swear filter in place, which is why you will probably see the words "flower" and "shower" a lot, among others. Swearing in itself is not a bannable offence, but testing out the swear filter, trying to avoid it, and/or posting nothing but swear words will get you banned.
- Other things are discouraged, and if you do them often enough you will get banned. This includes "[badplayer] is my captain" jokes and posting PNG predictions.
- Acting like an idiot will get you banned. This rule covers things like posting upside-down text, talking in IM speak, obvious trolling, banging on and on about one specific point, and not being a loss to the FF community in general. This also covers racism, sexism, potty mouths and other immaturity.
These rules are in place to ensure a friendly, football-focused chat environment. If you can't handle that, that is your problem.
* = This player kicked the first goal of the game.
= Hot (flame). This player is on fire in fantasy terms, on target for a Dream Team ton.
= Cold (icicle). This player has gone cold in this game, well down on his usual average.
= Sore (band-aid). This player has hurt himself, from a muscle injury or a knock. It's not bad enough to put him out of the game.
= Groggy (pow!). This player has hurt himself from a knock to the head, so he's feeling a bit woozy.
= Injured (red cross). This player will most probably not return for the rest of the game due to an injury. (Be warned that sometimes players are given this symbol wrongly due to incorrect radio reports.)

= MRP (TV). Due to an incident that wasn't reported, this player is likely to be cited on video by the AFL Match Review Panel.

= Spud (potato). It's no surprise that this player's fantasy score is so low... he's just a spud, no one should have him.

= Rookie (L-plate). The kid's playing his first game, cut him some slack if he doesn't get much of the pill.
= Bubble Boy (P-plate). The kid's playing his second game, so he's about to be "on the bubble" for fantasy price changes.

FURTHER CHAT FEATURES
NEW! FanFooty now has a Watchlist feature. In your Exteam list page, there are buttons to add the players in your team to your watchlist. These players then show with green names in the live scoring pages, and their row lights up green when they score (or red when they lose points).
Normal chat names appear in black. Note: no amount of whining will get you a free colour. Shush. Those who appear in purple have won the purple name game competition which runs during half time of all games, where you predict the Dream Team score of a nominated player. Purple names last for the rest of the current round, or for all the next round if you win in the last game of a round. Repeat: whining gets you nowhere.
FanFooty peoples' names are in special colours. m0nty is the main administrator of FanFooty. Prospector is a FanFooty forum moderator, though he doesn't have chat admin powers. If you apply to write for the FanFooty match blogs you pick your own colour specially for the blogs.
With the FanFooty tipping competition this year we are honouring the overall leader in
orange with a star and the weekly leader just in orange.
We're also identifying the members of the famous DT Talk podcast with their own logo. At the moment the gang is comprised of Calvinator, Warnie, Chopper, roy8, djch00k and Tit-ed.
If you see a coach whose name is in green, pay this coach the greatest of respect as the winner of a major fantasy footy competition. Currently we are honouring casha (2007 Super Coach winner), snagadelic (2008 Dream Team Eliminator winner), Khoa (2010 Dream Team Eliminator winner) and grimlock (2008 FanFooty Lethal League winner).
