  • -Search Tool - how to use such a powerful feature?

    As you can see the forum is full of different Categories and Topics with loads of posts. Therefore it is of a high importance for every manager to learn how to use this valuable tool that the forum menu has to offer. The so called Search Tool, it's that icon that looks like a magnifying glass. 🔍
    If you click on it a new page opens and in there you can type a key word , relevant to what you need to find fast. For example you can type Nationality Bonus and click on the blue Search button. In a second you will see in front of you every single post in where your key word had been used.
    In one word... Priceless !!! :

  • Greetings to all OSM users and forumers. 🙋

    6. You may not use inappropriate language on OSM's Forums, Profiles, Chats and emails.

    8. Collaboration between managers in all leagues is prohibited at OSM. This includes the fixing of matches and the use of the transfers system to give one club an unfair advantage over another. Factors which will be considered such include, but are not be limited to: deliberately poor team line-ups; players deliberately lined up in the wrong positions; managers joining a league and then resigning after a few days with the deliberate intention of colluding with another manager; the specific use of Training Camps to affect or alter Results in order to gain an unfair advantage or to protect another manager

    9. You may not use any external software/script with the purposes of artificially giving you or someone else an advantage over other managers which makes for unfair competition.

    10. We hold the right to delete or disable your account in case of periods of inactivity.

    11. We hold the right to keep manager names and email addresses of deleted/disabled/locked accounts on our databases as a protection against cheating.

    If any of these rules are broken (or bent) by you, drastic measures may be taken by the administrator to correct your wrongdoings. This may include the deletion or disabling of your account.

    Note: These are maximum limits, you can set a signature that has less lines and smaller images!

  • -I suspect someone is cheating, how can I be sure?

    We often get questions about what's considered cheating and what's not. Managers reporting users just because they managed to build a really good squad, because they beat them while their squad is better or even report managers because they don't lose a match.

    As you can imagine this creates an huge delay and unnecessary workload having to check all those reports.

    So... Let's try to reduce this, by explaining when managers are breaking OSM Terms and when they should be reported.

    There are mainly 3 situations where it's easy for users to spot when a manager is breaking OSM Terms:

    Illegal transfers To be reported under Illegal Transfers

    • Doing transfers between 2 or more teams (managed by humans) where one of them is clearly the benefited with those transfers
      • Buying weak players that don't improve your squad by huge amounts without a clear reason for it (don't have enough players to line due to injuries or suspension)
      • Buying strong players that will improve your squad by really low values without having a clear benefit to seller

    Collusion To be reported under Multi Accounts

    • A single user controlling several teams or a group of users playing as a group to 'assure' that a specific team will win the league by setting losing tactics, weak line ups, players on wrong positions and/or play with strongest line up and camping their rivals

    Offensive language To be reported under Multi Accounts

    • Offensive names, league names, profiles, insults via PMs, Crew Names.....etc

    Important NOTE: All reports should include a clear description of what you're reporting and evidences added (if necessary, upload screenshots to an image hosting site and add the links on report)
