    To Members Who May Follow Other Posters: Please be wary of members who post plays that may seem unrealistic to most bettors.

    These Are Some Examples:
    100 Dime Play Of The Week
    5,000* Star Play
    Lock Of The Year

    Also please pay special attention to cappers/posters who do not update their record regularly, who do not include money/units won/lost as well as juice lost from their total plays in their record, or those who come out of nowhere with claims of a winning record that has not been posted or documented here at TheRx.

    Many posters will hype their plays in their thread title, yet don't update their record and in turn could have an overall losing record if it was indeed tracked.

    Simply put, if a poster does not track and post their overall record with included units won/lost, they COULD be hiding something, and it's not fair to those of you who do follow to not have an overall and fair picture to base your opinions on whether or not you decide to follow for any specific day, night, or season.

    To all Cappers who post picks here at The Rx.com: Sometimes some of the pick threads get out of hand regarding thread titles, undocumented claims, and are much to shill like.

    Please adhere to the following simple policies when posting picks. (I know most of the veteran cappers here at The Rx already know this)..

    1. Make no claims that have not been verified by a post prior to the start of each game in the claim that has not been recorded by a post here at The Rx.com.

    2. Keep your thread titles reasonable (or they may get toned down by an edit by an Rx mod). Eg. Sunday's NFL selection or Today's NFL Picks etc. are what we are looking for.
    There is no need for posting outrageous claims or creating thread titles that contain undocumented records with unbetable amounts of units.

    3. Keep in mind that a lot of inexperienced players read your posts. Please and make pick posts clear, concise and accurate so that all can count on the Rx cappers to post accurate information. Unverified posted records are subject to being moved to Site Promotions.

    4. Cappers with at least 300 posts are welcome to use the Rx.com Tracker Forum where your record of plays you post in that forum is maintained for you.
    Please read the rules thread if you use the Rx.Tracker Forum. Only thread starters can post in their own threads in that forum so please do not post in anyone elses thread in the Tracker Forum...

    Click on colored link to visit Tracker Forum.

    5. Everyone has a bad day from time to time, please do not start your YTD record over if you have one. Post your YTD record if you want but be honest when you do and kindly always use widely available lines..


    Thank you, Rx. Mod Staff.

    When you post a pick please use numbers that are widley available at the time of you're post. WA or widley available lines make it easy for everyone to use the play. I have recieved several E-mails asking me to make an announcement.

    Remember this is not a popularity contest but a handicapping forum - lets make it as easy as possible for everyone to participate. If you use free half point outs simply state so.

    Laying -6 at 7AM yourself then posting that same pick at the same -6 when it is up to -7 or 7.5 by 4PM when you get a chance to post helps no one. There is no -6 to be had and -7 or -7.5 is a long way off -6.

    The same goes for baseball posting a favorite at -125 when you played it the night before and saying it is a play when the game is now -145 the next afternoon when you post does little good for anyone. Remember post the number that is widley available for all at the time of you're post.

    Thanks, Rx.com Mod Team..

    Posters - PLEASE show each other at least a small amount of courtesy when posting in any of The Rx.com Sport Forums
    Bickering and ridicule gets tiresome, counter-productive.

    All of you are here to try to beat your bookies, not each other, so again please either post productively or use The Rubber Room if you want to post abusively or criticise your fellow posters.

    Please try your best to help each other or if you can't do that than kindly leave well enough alone posters who you may disagree with.

    Bashing another poster in his or her own picks-thread will not be tolerated.

    The Rx.com moderator team is spread fairly thin and has to depend upon you posters to report bashing. abusive posting and un-called for criticism or ridicule in any of our Sport Forums by using the "Report a Post" icon at the bottom left of all post boxes.

    Violaters will be warned, repeat violaters will be placed on post review for for periods of time commensurate with the degree of bashing or abusive posting.

    Eventually mutiple offenders who have been warned on several occasions will be banned from the site indefinitely.

    Please use the "Report a Post" icon to report any bashing or out of line posting that either happens to you or any you see happening to others - it will be greatly appreciated by The Rx.com Moderator team as well as the poster being abused. Reports will be acted upon promptly and with complete discretion. Simply click on the triangular icon at the bottom left hand corner of all Rx.com post boxes.

    Icon: All posts have this icon at bottom left.

    Also any poster who sees something that appears to be out of line should feel free to contact any of the Rx. moderators (see list below) or use the report Post function icon above.

    Using the icon will immediately generate an email with a link to the offending post to several moderators, one of which who upon receipt of the email will take immediate action and deal with the offending poster or posters. All you need to do is click on the icon and type one,two or maybe three simple words and click on SEND REPORT.

    Those few words can be something along the lines of abusive poster, profane language, uncalled for bashing, unfair criticism etc.

    When posters assist each other in such a manner then there is little chance that a poster will be on the receiving end of unfair bashing or abusive posting for very long.

    Posters are also invited to email moderators individually if so desired. However this method for reporting abusive posting can be slower in obtaining results than using the report a post icon method.

    Rx.com Moderator Team with email addresses:

    FYI:

    All of The Rx. Moderators have new E-mail addys - please use any of these to contact The Rx. for any help you may need.
