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

      looking at Maxvill now I only see him playing on 1964, 1967 and 1974 WS teams.
      Baseball reference in their WS champs list:

      Barry for championships in 1910, 1911, 1913, 1915, , and 1916
      McInnis for championships 1910, 1911, 1913, 1918, and 1925
      Maxvill for championships in 1964, 1967, 1972, 1973, and 1974.

      Double checking, those players did play on those teams. They are all actually more legit than Collins and his 9 AB in 1929 and 3 AB in 1930 ( which of course, techically count for him as championship seasons).

        Though Maxvill played for the A's 1972-75, he was not with the A's during the 1973 post-season. He went to the Pirates in midseason of 1973 & returned during the 1974 season.

        Jack Barry missed the final 35 games of the 1916 season due to injury and was not on the post-season roster.
        Though McInnnis was with the Athletics for the entire 1910 season, he played only 38 games and did not appear in the World Series.

          Right- Maxvill played on winning WS teams in 64 (StL vs NYY), 67 (StL vs Bos), 74 (Oak vs LAD). He was on the 72 Oakland As team but did not play in the 72 Series- I don't know if he was on the active roster.

          He also played for StL in the 68 Series, losing to Detroit.

          So, Maxvill actually played in the World Series for 3 winning teams- not 5: StL 64, StL 67, Oakland 74.

              I’m well aware of all of this.

              Baseball Reference lists all 3 with 5 rings in their championship count. However, they are all actually more legit than Collins and his 9 AB in 1929 and 3 AB in 1930. I don’t see how one can’t count Barry and McInnis for 5? Counting Maxvill in 73 is a stretch, but he did play on that team. Maxvill did bat 9 times in the 72 ALCS.

                Which means nothing. Their Oracle / teammate counter includes players who weren't even on the team at the same time (including the players they were traded for.) Their list is ridiculous. Including 1973 for Maxvill is absurd.

                  I don't think it matters what BB-REF says in this case. Maxvill DID NOT play in the 72 World Series- perhaps he was on the roster, so IF he was he could be credited with being part of the team- not playing in the WS. however.

                  BUT, in 1973, as Macker said, Maxvill was traded away in mid-season. He was not a member of the team at playoff time. THe As players MAY have decided to give him a partial WS share- I don't know this- but this doesn't make him a member of the World Series winning team.

                    Besides, the wording above the list isn't even accurate:
                    "Please note that this does not measure how many times the player was on the roster during the WS of a World Series winner. It only measures if they appeared for that team at some point and then if they appeared in the WS that year for the winning team."

                    Plus, the link on the leaderboard to get you to the list says "Most Championship Rings," and they didn't always get rings. Some years they had a choice of items and selected watch fobs, medallions, or other things.

                    Anyway, George Wright has five championships.

                      I did some database checking, and among players who never played for the Yankees, Eddie Collins holds the record for playing the most seasons on World Series winning teams with 6 (regardless of whether or not he actually played in the World Series). Barry, Maxvill, and McInnis are indeed the only other players with at least 5.

                      If you consider only guys who actually play in the World Series, there are 10 players tied for the record of 4 seasons. Barry, Collins, and McInnis are three of them (not Maxvill, though). Frisch, Tenace, and Timlin are three others who have already been mentioned here. Can anyone guess the last four without cheating?

                            I'm guessing theres at least one more from those Redsox teams.

                              Hooper is one of the four. Three to go.
