      Video Forum Rules & Guidelines   12/14/2016

      Video Forum Posting Rules Updated March 26, 2015 DO Make a thread up to 20 minutes before a match started. No longer than this. Reserving posts ahead of time is not allowed. Name match threads similarly across the board so they are easier to find. Use the appropriate tags on your topic. This also makes them easy to find. Provide general information about videos when posting them; channel, language, quality, codec and resolution. (Example: Arabic\English -- H.264 -- MKV -- Al Jazeera Sports) Use the Spoiler tag where appropriate. Please put goals, scores, etc. behind these tags so as not to ruin things for others. Keep discussion of compilations friendly, no abusive language towards another member. Pay attention to threads marked with "Clips Only" or "No Spoilers". It means what it says. Other posts will be removed and may lead to a warning. DON'T Make a thread unless you have something to post regarding the match in question eg. pre-match comp, press conferences, interviews, etc. Make a thread if there is another similar thread. Add your post to the pre-existing thread. Reserve posts for mirrors. Post those when you have them available. Post link to sites that require registration. Mirror files to a host which has already been provided. Ask the members to follow a link to another forum or similar site for your videos. Post requests in video threads or the Shoutbox. Any requests posted outside of the Requests board will be deleted. Complain about hosts. Cappers have their own preferences for where they upload. We understand that you may not be able to access some cappers works without premium accounts. We have no control over this and complaints posted in video threads just get in the way. FORMATTING We ask the following format be used when creating a new thread: Thread title: Team A vs. Team B - Match day/Round - Date of Match - Language (only if non-English) Tags Available: Competition(Prefix/Required) | Home Team | Away Team | Match day/Round | Competition stage (as needed) eg1. Liverpool vs Arsenal - EPL Week 5 - 11/11/2011 EPL(Prefix) , Liverpool , Arsenal , EPL Week 5 You may also add other relevant tags that would be helpful in searching topics. Thanks & regards, SoccerShouts Staff.

Tags & How to Use them

1 post in this topic

Tagging is a powerful feature made available through the IP.Board framework that allows you to collect "tags" for submitted data, either through an ad-hoc system whereby the members provide tags at will, or through a closed system where the available tags are pre-defined.

Even though users can provide tags at will but we still prefer to have them on at least the a set pattern so that is easier to find topics and getting things organized.

If I click on an MOTD prefix or tag it leads me all the topics that have either MOTD as a prefix or tag. It makes you find the topic quicker.

We recommend the following pattern for the tags to be used.
Home Team,Away Team,EPL Week xx , DD/MM/20xx,ENG,20xx-xx

We recommend using EPL Week xx because say if I click on EPL week 19 tag it will lead me to all the topics in the EPL Week 19 rather than all the Week 19 fixtures from various leagues.

All the tags need to be separated by a ,(comma) when you are trying to add them.

All the tags used get collected in an area and you can see them in the main page of our forum known as the Tag Cloud. The popular tags are more darker and bolder than others so you can use that as well to find topics.
