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

  • Could someone who has been to the Hyundai Club please give me a brief review? What kind of food do they offer? Is it crowded? Is there a long wait for food? Overall just looking for someone's opinion on the value of this location. Thanks in advance!

      I found this article describing new food items at Citi Field this year, with pictures:

      http://www.thedailymeal.com/citi-fie...eshow/slide-13

      Pastrami Dog
      For something a little more glamorous than the original Nathan's dog, try the Nathan's pastrami dog, topped with in-house smoked pastrami and deli mustard, located in section 135.

        I've been there a few times, most recently for one of the games of the 2015 NLDS.

        The food is pretty good and open buffet, grab-and-go. It comes in waves: if you walk into the club as soon as the gates open, there's snack food like popcorn, nachos with a cheese sauce pump, pretzels, chips, like that. After 20 minutes or so, the hot entrees start to come out, different every day, and a hot dog cart and burger stand starts to operate.

        Some time around the 5th inning, they start dessert service: cookies, brownies, coffee, a soft-serve ice cream sundae stand, and an ice cream cooler of bars, popsicles, and so on.

        There's free self-serve sodas and water, with alcoholic drinks for purchase at the bar.

        The view of the game can't be beat: you're seated slightly higher than the field level seats but pushed forward closer to home plate, above the Delta Club sections to either side of home plate.

        Whether it's worth the cost or not is up to you. They are expensive. I think if I had my season tickets there, I'd gain a ton of weight as I tried to "eat my money back", so to speak. I usually would splurge once or twice a season for (Super) Value games, or if I found someone dumping HC tickets on StubHub.

        One criticism I'd level is common to all the clubs at Citi Field: you can't see the game from inside. There are windows with some partial views of the field, but mostly of the OUTFIELD. You cannot be in the club and see the infield except for a narrow slice here and there.

          Thank You for your review. So they have "real food" as well as hot dogs, etc. I am going to exchange a game or two from my seats and check it out. The view looks awesome.

            Co-sign on just about everything Robardin said. However, this season they appear to have done away with the ice cream cooler (at least so far) and are only doing the sundae with scoops, no soft-serve. In addition to the hot dogs and burgers, that stand also has pulled pork or pulled chicken sandwiches.

              Can't exchange into the Hyundai Club...one of the limitations on direct exchange..so, need to resell, and, either buy at your season ticket pricing or go to alternate source...

                It looks like it will give me the value of my future game tickets to exchange along with the extra cost of the Hyundai Club. I haven't finalized a purchase but got through all the way to checkout?

                    Is pastrami a "topping" the way sauerkraut would be, though?

                    I'd say perhaps the arrangement should be to put the pastrami on the bottom - in the bun first, then put the hot dog on top of the pastrami, then put the mustard and sauerkraut on the dog. It'd be harder for the pastrami to fall off while eating it.

                      Rules say otherwise, but, perhaps the new on line system doesn't prevent it...
                      SEATING CATEGORIES • If tickets are exchanged for tickets in the same seating category, there will be no charge • If tickets are exchanged for tickets in a higher priced seating category, the customer will be responsible for paying the difference at the plan holder price • If tickets are exchanged for tickets in a lesser priced seating category, the customer will not be refunded the difference and a credit will not be added to the account • Hyundai Club tickets can be exchanged for Hyundai Club tickets to a new game • If you do not have a Hyundai Club ticket, you cannot exchange for a ticket into the Hyundai Club

                        I just tried exchanging a weekend ticket in the summer for a mid week game in May and it appeared to work. I didn't get all the way thru because I have to confirm the date with a friend, but it did appear to allow me to select seats.

                          I did it a little while ago and it worked. I hope they do not revoke my ticket. Silly why they wouldn't allow it anyway.

                            What game are you exchanging into? Of the games I tried to exchange into shows me no inventory at all for HC.

                              Now that is some culinary wizardry right there. :-)

                              Or you can also put the pastrami on the bottom, then the mustard, and then the hotdog on top. Minimal chance of mustard mess.
                              STOP ABUSING COFFEE

                                5/6 for 5/31. If you use pick your seat option the sections at the same price or less will be highlighted but you can still go to any other section including HC and if they are available you can pick them than make up the difference at checkout.
