This forum welcomes all fantasy sports enthusiasts. But there are some standards and guidelines that I want to reiterate so that the forum can be enjoyed by all users.
First and foremost, please read the forum standards and follow them.
Second, be aware that this is a moderated forum. There are a number of moderators who regularly (and often stealthily) patrol these boards, and they have the responsibility to edit and delete posts and threads that are abusive and/or inappropriate.
Third, this forum software has the capability to block specified users from posting messages. That capability has and will be used. Warnings are not always issued in advance. But if you use the forum properly, you have nothing to fear.
This forum is intended to be an integral part of the entire RotoGuru.com web site. The site includes a number of useful statistical and analytical features. In particular, many simple baseball questions can be answered though use of the sortable stats and the individual player histories. Please familiarize yourselves with these tools for all covered sports, and use them. Links appear in the lower navigation menu on each forum page, and also on the left panel of the blurb page.
Some of the busier forum topic areas include a thread ratings system. A thread's rating reflects the average relative value (on a scale of 1 to 5) assigned by everyone who chooses to rate it. The rating form appears at the bottom of each thread in those forums. Ratings are to serve as an aid in easily identifying those threads that have greater value to a broad audience.
RotoGuru.com prospers because of its distinctiveness. This site caters to fantasy sports enthusiasts who are interested in the strategy and "science" of fantasy sports. The principal focus of this site is to provide analytical tools and strategic insights so that users can do their own research and make their own decisions. It is not a "player recommendation site". Followers of the site and its principles, known as "Gurupies", take great pride in managing their own teams and making their own decisions. Most Gurupies are also very willing to assist others in thinking through alternative approaches. But the "Gurupie way" is to say "here are the pros and cons and issues" as opposed to "buy Player A, sell Player B".
Finally, this forum is supported by a variety of sources, including advertising, sales of RotoGuru merchandise, and voluntary donations from loyal Gurupies. For more information on ways to support this site financially, please visit the sponsor page. Thank you.
