Thanks Yamor. I have made it home in time but looking at the matches I think I'll stick with that. Smile

I know those are the same as those already posted twice, but I can't disagree with any of them!

Chris has no internet access and the rules say I can't post predictions for him so he's screwed.

If he asks you then you can, no?

Nope... there was a big discussion on this remember... we decided that having a friend give predictions is unfair to new members who lack friends on the forum. It basically means popularity can give you an advantage.

But we said since anyone can request on the previous days thread predictions for the next day, then that was alright, as long it wasn't for more then one or two days.

Yes, we said if someone knew they would be unavailable then they would need to publicly post their predictions in the previous matchday thread. That is the only fair way to do it without popularity giving an advantage.

Having Chris phone a friend to post on his behalf is not allowed, that is not posting in the previous matchday.

Ah, ok. Well it's his fault for not doing that, I suppose

I think we decided that he would have to actually make a post here asking for some predictions in advance, like I did in the matchday 4 thread. But he can't have someone post without requesting it here.

Edit: Beat me to it Mark.

Actually, it might not be. Although this rule exists, it wasn't in the official 'How to play' thread until now.

EDIT: The discussion on this rule was in the New Rules 2009 thread.
