Updated Baseball Fever Policy

Baseball Fever Policy

I. Purpose of this announcement:

This announcement describes the policies pertaining to the operation of Baseball Fever.

Baseball Fever is a moderated baseball message board which encourages and facilitates research and information exchange among fans of our national pastime. The intent of the Baseball Fever Policy is to ensure that Baseball Fever remains an extremely high quality, extremely low "noise" environment.

Baseball Fever is administrated by three principal administrators:
webmaster - Baseball Fever Owner
The Commissioner - Baseball Fever Administrator
Macker - Baseball Fever Administrator

And a group of forum specific super moderators. The role of the moderator is to keep Baseball Fever smoothly and to screen posts for compliance with our policy. The moderators are ALL volunteer positions, so please be patient and understanding of any delays you might experience in correspondence.

II. Comments about our policy:

Any suggestions on this policy may be made directly to the webmaster.

III. Acknowledgments:

This document was based on a similar policy used by SABR.

IV. Requirements for participation on Baseball Fever:

Participation on Baseball Fever is available to all baseball fans with a valid email address, as verified by the forum's automated system, which then in turn creates a single validated account. Multiple accounts by a single user are prohibited.

By registering, you agree to adhere to the policies outlined in this document and to conduct yourself accordingly. Abuse of the forum, by repeated failure to abide by these policies, will result in your access being blocked to the forum entirely.

V. Baseball Fever Netiquette:

Participants at Baseball Fever are required to adhere to these principles, which are outlined in this section.
a. All posts to Baseball Fever should be written in clear, concise English, with proper grammar and accurate spelling. The use of abbreviations should be kept to a minimum; when abbreviation is necessary, they should be either well-known (such as etc.), or explained on their first use in your post.

b. Conciseness is a key attribute of a good post.

c. Quote only the portion of a post to which you are responding.

d. Standard capitalization and punctuation make a large difference in the readability of a post. TYPING IN ALL CAPITALS is considered to be "shouting"; it is a good practice to limit use of all capitals to words which you wish to emphasize.

e. It is our policy NOT to transmit any defamatory or illegal materials.

f. Personal attacks of any type against Baseball Fever readers will not be tolerated. In these instances the post will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the personal attack via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue personal attacks will be banned from the site.

g. It is important to remember that many contextual clues available in face-to-face discussion, such as tone of voice and facial expression, are lost in the electronic forum. As a poster, try to be alert for phrasing that might be misinterpreted by your audience to be offensive; as a reader, remember to give the benefit of the doubt and not to take umbrage too easily. There are many instances in which a particular choice of words or phrasing can come across as being a personal attack where none was intended.

h. The netiquette described above (a-g) often uses the term "posts", but applies equally to Private Messages.

VI. Baseball Fever User Signature Policy

A signature is a piece of text that some members may care to have inserted at the end of ALL of their posts, a little like the closing of a letter. You can set and / or change your signature by editing your profile in the UserCP. Since it is visible on ALL your posts, the following policy must be adhered to:

Signature Composition
Font size limit: No larger than size 2 (This policy is a size 2)
Style: Bold and italics are permissible
Character limit: No more than 500 total characters
Lines: No more than 4 lines
Colors: Most colors are permissible, but those which are hard to discern against the gray background (yellow, white, pale gray) should be avoided
Images/Graphics: Allowed, but nothing larger than 20k and Content rules must be followed

Signature Content
No advertising is permitted
Nothing political or religious
Nothing obscene, vulgar, defamatory or derogatory
Links to personal blogs/websites are permissible - with the webmaster's written consent
A Link to your Baseball Fever Blog does not require written consent and is recommended
Quotes must be attributed. Non-baseball quotes are permissible as long as they are not religious or political

Please adhere to these rules when you create your signature. Failure to do so will result in a request to comply by a moderator. If you do not comply within a reasonable amount of time, the signature will be removed and / or edited by an Administrator. Baseball Fever reserves the right to edit and / or remove any or all of your signature line at any time without contacting the account holder.

VII. Appropriate and inappropriate topics for Baseball Fever:

Most concisely, the test for whether a post is appropriate for Baseball Fever is: "Does this message discuss our national pastime in an interesting manner?" This post can be direct or indirect: posing a question, asking for assistance, providing raw data or citations, or discussing and constructively critiquing existing posts. In general, a broad interpretation of "baseball related" is used.

Baseball Fever is not a promotional environment. Advertising of products, web sites, etc., whether for profit or not-for-profit, is not permitted. At the webmaster's discretion, brief one-time announcements for products or services of legitimate baseball interest and usefulness may be allowed. If advertising is posted to the site it will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the post via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue advertising will be banned from the site. If the advertising is spam-related, pornography-based, or a "visit-my-site" type post / private message, no warning at all will be provided, and the member will be banned immediately without a warning.

It is considered appropriate to post a URL to a page which specifically and directly answers a question posted on the list (for example, it would be permissible to post a link to a page containing home-road splits, even on a site which has advertising or other commercial content; however, it would not be appropriate to post the URL of the main page of the site). The site reserves the right to limit the frequency of such announcements by any individual or group.

In keeping with our test for a proper topic, posting to Baseball Fever should be treated as if you truly do care. This includes posting information that is, to the best of your knowledge, complete and accurate at the time you post. Any errors or ambiguities you catch later should be acknowledged and corrected in the thread, since Baseball Fever is sometimes considered to be a valuable reference for research information.

VIII. Role of the moderator:

When a post is submitted to Baseball Fever, it is forwarded by the server automatically and seen immediately. The moderator may:
a. Leave the thread exactly like it was submitted. This is the case 95% of the time.

b. Immediately delete the thread as inappropriate for Baseball Fever. Examples include advertising, personal attacks, or spam. This is the case 1% of the time.

c. Move the thread. If a member makes a post about the Marlins in the Yankees forum it will be moved to the appropriate forum. This is the case 3% of the time.

d. Edit the message due to an inappropriate item. This is the case 1% of the time. There have been new users who will make a wonderful post, then add to their signature line (where your name / handle appears) a tagline that is a pure advertisement. This tagline will be removed, a note will be left in the message so he/she is aware of the edit, and personal contact will be made to the poster telling them what has been edited and what actions need to be taken to prevent further edits.

The moderators perform no checks on posts to verify factual or logical accuracy. While he/she may point out gross errors in factual data in replies to the thread, the moderator does not act as an "accuracy" editor. Also moderation is not a vehicle for censorship of individuals and/or opinions, and the moderator's decisions should not be taken personally.

IX. Legal aspects of participation in Baseball Fever:

By submitting a post to Baseball Fever, you grant Baseball Fever permission to distribute your message to the forum. Other rights pertaining to the post remain with the ORIGINAL author, and you may not redistribute or retransmit any posts by any others, in whole or in part, without the express consent of the original author.

The messages appearing on Baseball Fever contain the opinions and views of their respective authors and are not necessarily those of Baseball Fever, or of the Baseball Almanac family of sites.

Sincerely,

Sean Holtz, Webmaster of Baseball Almanac & Baseball Fever

  • Yes. I'm extremely happy to have these seats.
    It's also one of the few placest in Citi where a row 1 does not cost more.
    By the way, my e-mail is yakc117@gmail.com

    I remember the rep telling me they just started with Uppers so perhaps that's why your rep didn't know. Since it seems to be going by location, you probably will get the call extremely soon.

    Also, the rep said there has been no policy yet about partial plan holders. He figures sometime in Oct/ Nov after full season holders have either paid in full or not and then they can see an acurate inventory.

    • I get home extremely late. More towards 12:30 - 1:00 AM. There is absolutely no traffic after I hit Staten Island.

      I work in the Freehold area so I'm a bit closer to Shea on the way in.

        $2025 per seat. $25 a seat times 81 games.

        I put down a 10% deposit of $405 with the rest due in Oct/ Nov.

        I'm happy with the location and price.
        Wow, that's pretty great, congratulations.

        Still waiting for my call. Field 129 now, who knows what they'll sock me with.

          Wow. So promenade reserved infield only costs $25/game? I wonder if that's just the season ticket price or if that's the individual game price too. I don't think the Mets give season ticket/plan discounts now (someone can correct me if I'm wrong), but I know other teams do.

          Any word on how much the non-infield promenade reserved seats cost?

          • Just spoke to a rep that said it could be 2-3 weeks before others get a call, they're going in no set order, location or otherwise, just depends on when the particular rep has your file and gets to your name.

            He also said that all the full season ticket holders have already been assigned particular seats.

            Also, the August 1st 10% deadline is flexible. The folks who got called already have that as a deadline, but since people like me haven't been called yet we'll have maybe September 1st or later.

            He did infer that the November deadline is pretty rigid. Although I know this is a new stadium and all that, in years past they've given me sometimes up until the end of Feb. to get my final payment in, but they may only extend that courtesy to longer season tix holders, and that may be out the window in the new world of Citi, but who knows.

            Anyway, I'm still waiting patiently.

              I am happy for you. You are only paying $5 more a game than what the CBP prices are.
              I would expect the promenade outfield seats will be $20 for a STH
              The mets will continue the five tier pricing structure Here is my guess for promendade infield
              $15 $20 $30 $35 $40
              Again congrats to the mets fan.

                  nymdan its just speculation on my part.
                  A nice idea would be to have a price for regular games and a higher price for premium games Yanks, cubs phils.
                  However that will eliminate the $5 tickets.
                  We will see

                    WOW. You lucked out big time. You have one of the few sections that has the tunnel instead of the stairs. NO OBSTRUCTION!!!! Congrats!

                      Great job - great location on your tickets. Congrats!
                      Took this picture on my walk last Tuesday from the front row of your section. I may be half a section over to the right, but close enough. Great view, and I can only echo the other posts about your location - Tunnel and not stairs! Gonna have to keep your email for tickets next year!

                        • Does 516 have obstructions because of stairs.

                          I ask because looking at what I wrote down I'm now not sure if I got 515 or 516.

                          (I was deep into my work when rep called.)

                          Thanks Tons!

                            516 is a tunnel section too.

                              UD Sec 10 box 734A Row 1 should be section 419 promenade box at citi field.
                              you could move back to section 519 promenade reserve infield and save money.
                              I dont think the stairs/ railing will be in your way. You can judge for yourself
                              http://www.seats3d.com/mlb/new_york_mets/

                              If its $25 for promenade reserve expect $50 or more in the box seats.

                              • The Mets could be switching to a system like the Yankees have now. Its not tiered by opponent or time of year, but they have 4 different prices:
                                - Cheapest for full season holders
                                - a bit higher for partial plans
                                - Yet more for single game advance sales
                                - And a few more dollars for day of game sales

                                Just speculation on my part....
