Frequently asked questions for 606

What's unique about 606?
Members can create, and search for, different forms of content - articles, reports, previews, team profiles, player profiles and more.

How do I find stuff that interests me?
You can use the search facility or check out the most recently published content on the site by clicking on the links on the left-hand nav.

The left-hand nav also contains a wide variety of sports on which content is available.

Can I debate with fellow members?
Yes - you can post comments in response to what they write.

I've just registered - why is there a delay before my contributions appear?
All new users will have their posts checked for a probationary period to ensure that they are posting within house rules, and in order to nip trouble-making in the bud. We know that this phase of your membership can be frustrating, but bear with us, it will not last forever if you stick to the rules.

My comment/article is still not appearing - why?
You may have been placed into pre-moderation for a minor breach of house rules. Read more about this here

What are the opening hours?
Our usual hours are from 0900-2300 (British time). This may vary from time to time but we will post changes on the site. You are free to read 606 content out of hours but will not be able to add a comment.

How do I keep track of my comments and contributions?
Use your Member page. All the content you have created is collated here, and you can check back on the comments you have made.

Will any personal information associated with my 606 account be protected?
Yes - 606 does not publish the names you enter into the fields entitles 'first name' and 'last name' anywhere on the 606 site. Likewise, your date of birth, email address and security question will NEVER be displayed anywhere on the BBC.
