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

    Cleveland Indians

    The Cleveland Indians are the next team. There are a total of 22 Indians cards in the sets, representing a total of 18 players.

    Let's take a look at the Indians cards in each set:

    1990 Donruss Rookies

    1. Sandy Alomar Jr. (Front) (Back)
    19. Carlos Baerga (Front) (Back)
    36. Kevin Wickander (Front) (Back)
    53. Jeff Shaw (Front) (Back)

    1990 Score Rising Stars

    9. Joey Belle (Front) (Back)

    1990 Topps Major League Debut

    2. Beau Allred (Front) (Back)
    14. Joey Belle (Front) (Back)
    27. Pete Dalena (Front) (Back)
    58. Mark Higgins (Front) (Back)
    75. Tom Magrann (Front) (Back)
    90. Steve Olin (Front) (Back)
    114. Rudy Seazez (Front) (Back)
    115. Joe Skalski (Front) (Back)
    142. Kevin Wickander (Front) (Back)

    1990 Topps Traded

    2T. Sandy Alomar Jr. (Front) (Back)
    6T. Carlos Baerga (Front) (Back)
    39T. Keith Hernandez (Front) (Back)
    46T. Chris James (Front) (Back)
    49T. Jeff Kaiser (Front) (Back)
    65T. Candy Maldonado (Front) (Back)
    72T. John McNamara (Front) (Back)
    127T. Mitch Webster (Front) (Back)

    Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

    Beau Allred - 97% success rate on SCN, so we'll give him a shot.

    Sandy Alomar Jr. - 55% success rate on SCN, with a very spotty signing history. We'll skip him for now.

    Carlos Baerga - Only a 34% success rate and no successes since 2009, so we'll skip him.

    Joey Belle - Later changed his name to Albert and tried to run down trick-or-treaters in his car. Not shockingly, SCN has no successes for him.

    Pete Delena - 55% success rate with no successes since 2009. We'll pass.

    Keith Hernandez - 12% success rate on SCN.

    Mark Higgins - 100% success rate on SCN, with successes this year. We'll give him a shot.

    Chris James - 76% success rate with recent successes. We'll give him a try.

    Jeff Kaiser - 38% success rate on SCN, so we'll skip him.

    Candy Maldanado - 61% success rate and no successes this year. We won't send him a request.

    Tom Magrann - 66% success rate, with a request at the end of 2010. Not great odds, but we'll give him a try.

    John McNamara - 75% success rate on SCN, but very few successes since 2005. Guessing he's stopped signing.

    Steve Olin - Mr. Olin is deceased. RIP

    Rudy Seanez - 35% success rate and no successes since 2007. We'll skip him.

    Jeff Shaw - 77% success rate on SCN with a bunch of recent successes. We'll give him a shot.

    Joe Skalski - 61% success rate on SCN with spotty history. We'll pass.

    Mitch Webster - 44% success rate and no successes since 2006 according to SCN.

    Kevin Wickander - 12% success rate and no successes since 2005. We'll skip him.

    I'll send 5 requests out of 18 Indians players in the sets (28%). I'll send a total of 5 of the 22 cards (23%).

    Total Cards: 154
    Total Requests: 33
    Total Cards Sent: 42
    Successes: 6

        93T. Dan Petry (Front) (Back)
        95T. Tony Phillips (Front) (Back)

        Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

        Mike Brumley - 56% success rate, seems to have stopped signing in 2010.

        Milt Cuyler - Only a 6% success rate on SCN, so we'll pass.

        Jeff Datz - 95% success rate on SCN. Not a lot of requests sent his way (I think this is his only MLB card), but we'll send his way.

        Brian DuBois - 23% success rate on SCN, with no returns since 2008. We'll pass.

        Cecil Fielder - 63% success rate, but no successes since early 2009.

        Travis Fryman - Only a 32% success rate on SCN, so we'll skip him.

        Shawn Holman - No successes in 3 attempts on SCN. We'll skip him.

        Scott Lusader - 19% success rate. We'll pass.

        Lloyd Moseby - 9% success rate, with no successes 2005.

        Randy Nosek - No successes in 3 attempts on SCn. We'll skip him.

        Ramon Pena - No successes in 3 attempts on SCN. We'll skip him.

        Dan Petry - 85% success rate. Doesn't seem to be signing via home address, but is c/o Tigers. We'll try him there.

        Tony Phillips - Ony a 14% success rate on SCN, so we'll pass on him.

        Rob Richie - Also has only a 14% success rate on SCN. We'll skip him, too.

        Kevin Ritz - 82% success rate, with some recent successes. He appears to take a LONG time to sign, but I'll give him a shot.

        Mike Schwabe - Only one success in 7 attempts on SCN, and that was back in 2006. We'll skip him.

        Doug Strange - 36% success rate with no successes since 2005. We'll pass.

        Steve Searcy - 94% success rate on SCN, so we'll give him a shot.

        I'll send 4 requests out of the 18 Tigers in the sets (22%). I'll end up sending 5 out of the 21 total Tigers cards (24%).

              148. Eric Yelding (Front) (Back)

              * - Hernandez appears as a member of the Blue Jays on this card, but we'll include him here.

              1990 Topps Traded

              17T. Casey Candaele (Front) (Back)
              34T. Bill Gullickson (Front) (Back)
              120T. Franklin Stubbs (Front) (Back)

              Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

              Eric Anthony - Only one success, ever, on SCN, and it's back in 2007. We'll pass.

              Casey Candaele - Only a 51% success rate and spotty history. We'll skip him.

              Jose Cano - SCN has no attempts for Robinson's dad, ever. Guessing he lives outside the US.

              Bill Gullickson - Only a 17% success rate on SCN, so we'll skip him.

              Xavier Hernandez - 92% success rate with recent successes. We'll give him a shot!

              Franklin Stubbs - 91% success rate with recent successes. We'll send a request his way.

              Eric Yelding - 11% success rate and no successes since 2004, so we'll pass.

              I'll end up sending requests to 2 of the 7 Astros (29%). I'll send 3 of the 10 total cards (30%).

                114T. Terry Shumpert (Front) (Back)

                Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

                Kevin Appier - Only a 61% success rate, and not a lot of recent successes, so we'll skip him.

                Mark Davis - 36% success rate on SCN. We'll pass on him.

                Storm Davis - 65% success rate, but recent successes are very sparse. I guess he has stopped signing.

                Jose DeJesus - 36% success rate on SCN, so we'll pass for now.

                Luis de Los Santos - No successes on SCN in only 1 attempt. I'm guessing he doesn't live in the US.

                Tom Gordon - 29% success rate on SCN with no successes since 2007. We'll skip him.

                Rick Luecken - 96% success rate on SCN, so we'll give him a try!

                Jeff Schulz - 30% success rate with no successes since 2006, so we'll skip him.

                Gerald Perry - No successes on SCN for Perry, ever.

                Terry Shumpert - Only a 5% success rate on SCN with no successes since 2004.

                Matt Winters - 36% success rate on SCN with no successes since 2009. We'll skip him.

                Not a great showing from the Royals...we end up sending only 1 of the 11 (9%) Royals in the set, and only 1 of the 15 (7%) total cards.

                  109T. Juan Samuel (Front) (Back)

                  Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

                  Hubie Brooks - 16% success rate on SCN, so we'll skip him.

                  Darrin Fletcher - 71% success rate, with only 7 total requests. I think I'll give him a try.

                  Lenny Harris - 31% success rate and no successes since 2008, so we'll pass.

                  Mike Hartley - 52% success rate with no successes this year, so we'll skip him.

                  Carlos Hernandez - 53% success rate with no successes since 2009. We'll pass.

                  Mike Huff - 73% success rate with a few recent successes, so we'll give him a try.

                  Stan Javier - 65% success rate with a few recent successes c/o the MLBPA, so I'll try him there.

                  Ramon Martinez - SCN has only one success for him, ever, and it was in 1997.

                  Mike Munoz - 93% success rate with recent successes. We'll send him a request.

                  Juan Samuel - 90% success rate with recent successes, so we'll try him, as well.

                  Brian Traxler - Mr. Traxler is deceased. RIP.

                  Jose Viscaino - 50% success rate on SCN. We'll skip him.

                  John Wetteland - 9% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2006, so we'll pass.

                  we'll end up sending requests to 5 of the 13 Dodgers in the set (38%). We'll send 6 of the 16 total cards (38%). That's a pretty good showing, although a couple of the guys we're sending to here aren't slam dunks.

                  Total Cards: 216
                  Total Requests: 45

                      130. Randy Veres (Front)(Back)

                      1990 Topps Traded

                      26T. Edgar Diaz (Front)(Back)

                      125T. Randy Veres (Front)(Back)

                      Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

                      Billy Bates - Only one success on SCN (6 total attempts) and it's from 2005, so we'll pass.

                      George Candale - Only one success on SCN (12 total attempts) and it's from 2002, so we'll pass.

                      Edgar Diaz - No attempts on SCN. I imagine he lives outside the US.

                      LaVel Freeman - 33% success rate with no successes since 2009. We'll skip him.

                      Darryl Hamilton - 73% success rate, but appears to have stopped signing in March.

                      Jamie Navarro - 88% success rate with some fairly recent successes. Looks like he takes a while, but we'll give him a shot.

                      Dave Parker - Charges a $20 per card fee to sign. That's a bit rich for my blood, so I'll pass.

                      Jeff Peterek - 45% success rate on SCN, with a very hit-or-miss history. We'll skip him.

                      Ron Robinson - 72% success rate, but no successes since 2009.

                      Gary Sheffield - 5% success rate on SCN. We'll pass.

                      Billy Spiers - 93% success rate with recent successes, so we'll give him a try.

                      Greg Vaughn - 37% success rate with no successes since 2008. We'll skip him.

                      Randy Veres - 35% success rate with no successes since late 2009. We'll skip him, as well.

                      We'll send requests to 2 of the 13 players in the sets (15%). We'll send 3 of the 18 total cards (17%).

                      Total Cards: 234

                        If you are a member of SCN, get in touch with craigbnyman. He is going to a meet and greet. Rob Robinson is on the list. I have heard some rumblings in the autograph community about Billy Bates. I might can help you on that but I will not know for about three weeks. If the rumors are true, it will be a fee signing and I am going. I have a feeling it is going to be expensive though.

                          Thanks for the info. I can't see either of those guys being worth paying money for their autos, but if they can get it, more power to 'em!

                                * - pictured as a NY Met, but we'll include him here.

                                Lets take a look at the player's signing habits:

                                John Candelaria - Only a 26% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2008. We'll skip him.

                                Tim Drummond - No successes on SCN in 6 total attempts. We'll pass.

                                Mike Dyer - No successes on SCN in 7 total attempts. We'll pass on him, as well.

                                Scott Erickson - 37% success rate without any successes since 2006. We'll skip him, too.

                                German Gonzalez - No attempts for him on SCN. I'm guessing he lives outside the US.

                                Mark Guthrie - 51% success rate with no successes since mid-2010. We'll pass.

                                Chip Hale - 89% success rate with recent successes c/o Mets. I'll give him a try there.

                                Terry Jorgensen - 98% success rate on SCN, so I'll give him a try.

                                Terry Leach - 88% success rate on SCN. A few recent requests still out there, but we'll give him a try.

                                Shane Mack - 50% success rate, with no successes since early 2010. We'll skip him.

                                Fred Manrique - No successes on SCN, ever. Only one attempt, too. I think he lives outside the US.

                                Francisco Oliveras - Another guy with no successes or attempts. I think he's another one living outside the US.

                                Junior Ortiz - 11% success rate with no successes since 2005, so we'll pass.

                                Jack Savage - 73% success rate on SCN, but no successes since March, 2010.

                                Paul Sorrento - 12% success rate on SCN, with no requests since 2006.

                                Kevin Tapani - 97% success rate with recent successes. We'll give him a shot.

                                Gary Wayne - 97% success rate with recent successes, so we'll give him a shot, too.

                                Lenny Webster - No successes in five attempts according to SCN. We'll skip him.

                                We'll send requests to 5 of the 18 players in the sets (28%). We'll send 8 of the 22 total cards (36%).
