BMR Community Guidelines
The following guidelines are general principles here to help you understand what it takes to be a member of the Bookmakers Review community, which is the combination of the Bookmakers Forum and all the interactive features members have on BMR to connect and exchange information with their peers and Bookmakers Review itself.
- Find your place in the community.
- Be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members.
- Think about the consequences of your actions.
- Don't post private information or any other information about members.
- Don't feed the trolls. Ignore them.
Other things to keep in mind: When writing a personal review, an opinion or a comment or when answering a question on the forum, always refer to your personal experiences with online bookmakers. Second hand information is not useful (unless you are reporting someone's comment relevant to a particular news event).
If you make specific accusations against a betting site in your review and/or comments, be prepared to back them up. BMR exists (amongst other reasons) to provide bookmakers feedback so that they can improve their services, not just to attack and trash them. If you are a disgruntled bettor looking to vent your frustrations, there are many betting forums where your rants are welcome. On BMR we have absolutely no use for ranters and players reporting news or sharing their betting experiences for reasons other than to empower the community to make more informed decisions (a nice way to say we have no use for people with personal agendas).
Special note for bookmaker shills: To guarantee that reviews and comments are submitted by real players, we have an automated system running in the background that, after taking in consideration multiple criteria, flags all unusual content activity and members posting reviews/comments not in line with BMR guidelines. While the algorithm is not very complicate at this stage, it can easily identify reviews submitted by bookmaker shills.
Special note for bonus abusers: If you have been identified by an online bookmaker as a bonus abuser or a multiple account abuser and your account has been closed and your winnings confiscated, you are welcome to submit a complaint, but do not come on BMR saying “I want to see the proofs”. No bookmaker is ever going to tell you (or us) how they identified you, for the very simple reason that if they did and you are an abuser, you would use that information to perpetuate the abuse finding new ways. Further to that, BMR is not a court of law. If you need proofs, you have to hire a lawyer and file suit.
Special note for all BMR members who dislike content vandals: To help us retain the quality of the content posted on BookmakersReview.com and BookmakersForum.com, we ask all BMR members to report any review, comment or forum message containing offensive or inappropriate language. Thanks for making everyone's time on the BMR sites more enjoyable.
We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the BMR community understands the importance of submitting and moderating content responsibly. If you don't feel that you can follow our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe BMR isn't for you. In addition to the guidelines outlined above, BMR m embers are subject to the Bookmakers Review terms of service.
Please remember that if we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, in most circumstances, we’ll send you a warning and give you a second chance. but subsequent violations as well as any form of abuse towards staff of Bookmakers Review or Bookmakers Forum will result in immediate termination of your account.
If we believe that you are under 18 years of age your account will be terminated without warning.
If there are any guidelines or rules you do not understand or if you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
