Nah. She had linked to plusssports.com with triple S and I hadn’t noticed.

That, I definitely agree with (Y) :)

Mmm, I think they should stop concentrating on making pointless websites and instead be concentrating on adding features to Plus! itself and bring back some of the shine that appears to of been lost in the last 12 months.

Sorry but I am not impressed, I have hundreds of other websites I can use if I wanted to access this and a website that is ported over from an already average website is not on the top of my list.

Any available jobs?

No available jobs at the moment, but probably will be jobs in the future.   (Please don't send me cvs at the moment, as there are no immediate vacancies, but we'll keep you posted).

Note: team's tabs should be done in ajax... reloading the whole website on each click is not treding :P

Thanks for comments and suggestions.  I've passed on your note to our partner.

Discrate originally asked if the scores are live (was the original post deleted?)

The scores of the matches are updated live. The events are updated regularly, but not live (may take a few hours or days, depending on the country).

Soccer is phase one of Plus! Sports, which we have launched in time for the World Cup. This may evolve into other sports.

RE: Messenger Plus! launches Plus! Sports
I'm less and less interested in the site now, as Eddie says, the information is easily retrievable from elsewhere....BBC is a far better and guaranteed live scores, information, etc.

There's also no logical connection between Plus! and Football....so it kinda baffles me a little.  It really just seems that Yuna are trading off the Messenger Plus! name.  If it was perhaps joined with a Plus! Script that took all of the information and could display it in PSM or in convos with the use of commands, then it would make more sense.

Also, this isn't a Yuna forums......it's a Messenger Plus! Live forums......surely ventures such as these, or Plus! games, etc are better served on a Yuna hosted forum?

The game to which you're trying to refer is Football ;).  "Soccer" is an American/Australian bastardisation as they already had their own games called 'football' (neither of which use feet as the primary means of controlling the ball :/) before they were introduced to Association Football :P.

I can't speak for Americans and Australians, but as a Canadian, let me point out that there are soccer fans outside of Europe and all over the world, including North America, but if you refer to football in Canada and the U.S., you would be referring to a different sport..if the site was dedicated only to European soccer, then it would in fact be appropriate to call it football, imho.

Factually speaking, the game is called Football, so it would be inaccurate on a world wide website to call it anything else.  If the game were solely for a US/Canadian audience, then calling it soccer would be justfied.

Similarly, if a global website were to refer to American Football, that would be correct......but if it were a North American website, it would be more accurate to say soccer.

It might just be semantics, but it's correct ;)

The name isn't the same in all countries, just get used to it. Still, everyone understands what was meant.

[Also, it can always be worse. Initial protuguese translation for football/soccer was ludopédio. Glad we liked futebol better.]
