1) Remember this is a Sports board, and supposed to be ‘fun.’ You are welcome to have dissenting views with anyone, but please discuss things like adults.
2) Avoid swearing, along with political and religious commentary.
3) Please use proper capitalization and punctuation.
4) It is preferred, but not required, that you use your name as your message board handle. Only one user name per poster.
5) Do not attack posters or public figures personally.
6) When quoting information please give the source and a link when possible.
7) Do not post copyrighted material in its entirety. You may cut and paste portions to discuss but please provide a link to the source site.

Emotions have been running high in multiple threads. While I enjoy the passion, I want a board with civil debate.

We have a bunch of strong-minded posters, with informed opinions. Try and respect those you disagree with. If you feel slighted, try to just respond to the discussion point. This will help minimize board wars, and keep our discussions high.

If you feel specific posters are consistently making you turn the other cheek, tell me via PM.

We don't have a bunch of rules here, but we do have a few.

 

Here are the main things... try and keep the conversation light, and respect each other.

 

 

 

Many of you deserve credit and have my appreciation for the help you've provided in building this site and making it a community where people like to come. I'll ask that you continue to treat each other positively.

In our time with this board, I think we've perma banned 2 people. 

Until tonight, I had only issued one temporary ban.

I've added a second tonight.  (EDIT: Which I removed 30 mts later. I was ticked, and needed a pause.)

I appreciate the people that are here....  and I try and let you settle things as the adults you are, without being the over the top authoritarian board dictator.


Please don't make me be that guy.

It's your site, dude. Sometimes you gotta be that guy. 

 

You've done stuff I haven't agreed with before, but dude...sometimes you gotta be the hammer-dropper.

I know we banned the dude that basically said Tray Walker got what he deserved.

 

That was horrible.

Yeah I agree with this. Not that it has to be totalitarian or anything, but having no discipline or letting the asylum run itself is kinda worse. I know there are some times where things get all heated and out of control and I don't even want to come here to read cause there's just so much negativity. Sometimes a little time out is needed to keep the balance.

There will be some significant changes to the site over the next few months, and they will entail me to require we collectively stick to the rules above.
