Rules for the Gameday Post:
-- Don't post it too early, otherwise there could be repeat postings. Fifteen minutes or so before the game is probably ideal.
-- If the game is about to start and there is no Gameday Post you can always make a quick, minimal post and fix it up after the fact. If you aren't willing to do this, don't bother, because chances are someone else is.
-- Tag the entry with "!Gameday" (no, that exclaimation point isn't a typo)
-- Tag the entry with the name of the opposing team. Don't include the city, just the team's name. So "brewers", not "milwaukee" or "milwaukee brewers".
-- You would be wise to set "Allow Comments?" to "Don't Email", as GD Posts have been known to exceed 300 comments in a day. Avoid at your own peril.
-- The format of the Subject line should be consistent (see below)
How to Format Your Gameday Post:
-- The Subject should read: "Gameday Post - [date]; Cubs [vs. or at] [opposing team]" (the more uniform they are, the easier it will be for people searching for older games) - you are welcome to add the game number at the end, if you wish.
-- Must be included: both teams, time of start (and timezone), what television channels and radio stations are broadcasting it and the starting pitchers.
-- Information everyone likes to see: team records, records for the starting pitchers, starting lineups, city/park where the game is taking place, statistics!, weather information, any relevant commentary.
-- New: once the game has concluded, if you are the author of that game's GD Post, please edit the post to include the final score and which pitchers got the W, L, and S (if any). Please include any other statistics from the game that you feel like sharing.
-- Here is an example of a GD Post. It includes necessary as well as optional information. Your GD Posts don't need to be a carbon-copy of the one shown.
