assuming you know what lines apply in the situation the yes, if it touches the line a fraction then it's in

3. laws of badminton states its a fault;

13.2 if in play, the shuttle:

13.2.1 lands outside the boundaries of the court (ie not on or within the boundary lines);

It's In, not a fault

5. its still in if it touches the line, depending on the boundary/line your using (if your playing singles or doubles)

I don't think he was saying it was a fault, he was just pointing out the relevant law.
It's not obvious though.

yes it's a fault if the shuttle lands outside the boundaries or beyond the lines

8. Is it in even if the shuttle only touch the very very edge of the line?

9. a line is a line... so if it visible that it has touched the line with the naked eye... then its in... even if its just a lil bit.

10. yes touching the line no matter how much the birdie touches it, the shot is still in. man...just if some of the people at the clubs understood that simple, simple concept.

...hmm...yeah...i guess that makes sense...but i've always figured...if less than half the bird touches it...then it's out. cause how i see it is that the ground acts as a tangent to the circular head of the bird. so...if the bird is less than half of the way in...then i'd call it out cause based on the tangent and circle idea thingy...there's no way the bird could've touched the line even though it might look like it from looking down on it if it's passed half-way. but as long as it's close enough...i'll give it to em...

12. i know what ya mean super~me, thats a good point. when it is too close to call ill normally let people that are not playing decide on whether it is out or not or ill just give it to them like you would.

I agree if it is close or I couldn't see clearly then I'll ask the people behind the court or give the point if no-one is behind.

...yeah...that works too...but then when we play at school tournaments or regular tournaments...you often get these annoying opponents who live by the rule that if you're unsure or if you didn't call it in or out right away, then they get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to you...and totally forget bout it when it happens to them...but otherwise...either just get a line judge or just give them the benefit of the doubt if you're unsure...

17. indeed, or you could just replay the serve if no one can make the call for sure
