Re: Problem with New Threads

OK, folks. I'll admit i jumped on the backs of the mods unfairly. I appreciate the work they do. (That means you Matty) My message should me aimed more at the over-zealous posters who bash the unfortunate souls who happen to create a redundant thread. To me, its just not that big of a deal.

I am sorry that some users ignorantly make new threads about why Brunell should be benched, but that dosent give you the right to insult the poor person who dosen't understand the correct "etiquette." Mods, if you don't like it, don't let users create new threads at all. Maybe you should just decide new threads yourself. That way we can only talk about what you want. (I hope you catch the sarcasm) So when a user wants to create an a list that may be important to a few, you can shut him up. Who in the hell really uses the search function to see if there is a three year old thread listing the worst fans in the league?!
To me, if i don't want to read a redundant thread, guess what? I WONT READ IT! You guys need to either get off your high horses, or just start restricting our speech. Some of the "problem posters" maybe twelve or younger. It's great to see some of senior user's curse them and question their sexualtiy. Very mature.
After this post, i will go back to not posting at all, and reading the threads that I find interesting. One of which, by the way, is which uniforms the team should wear. Thank you.
so you're going to spend 2 pages whining about how you think other people shouldn't whine?

i don't know how long or how many boards you've been a part of, but if you let people spam freely without saying anything, guess what happens? it gets worse and more people decide to jump on in on that hot spamming action. If you'd like to post examples you're welcome to, but seriously, i think 14 concurrent brunell related threads is probably enough for most people.

I do understand what you're saying.

I don't like to see people jumping all over newbies, but then again I'm guilty of it myself sometimes.

I'm looking into not allowing newbies to post new threads until they have X amount of posts. Perhaps that will force them to ease into things a bit rather than just jumping in with both feet.

And to me, it's just not that big of a deal to bash someone. So, they get yelled at and scolded. So? Are we that concerned about people's feelings? Sheesh, so he got scolded for duplicating a thread. I think he'll be OK one of these days. He might need some counseling, but with help and through sheer determination, I think he'll be fine.

Are you one of those people who think the game of tag should be banned from our schools?

I think we'd all be down for that, especially in the wake of 0421kidwell's multiple Coffee Talk threads. (who came up with that name? that person is fantastic)

Re: Problem with New Threads

Unfortunately, every thread becomes a Campbell / Brunell thread now. I'm totally for different threads if they're each on subtle differences of the argument, because once a thread gets past 7 pages, it's the same 4-5 people discussing and others are either too lazy to read everything or just don't comment.

What I like about the Warpath is I log on and there's little sifting. I read most all of the threads and then move on. I don't have to go through 0421Kidwell crap on a regular basis. The Brunell -- Campbell thing has been a bit overdone. I think everyons opinion has been firmly addressed. That said, the one schneed posted from the washington post was a new look and a breath of fresh air.

As far as Im concerned, the mods should be even more strict with how the deal with new people of the sort.

I agree with Andy to an extent. I do feel this would be a really good idea. I was a member at another forum that did this, seemed to work well. My personal suggestion would be to keep X somewhat low, like 20-40 ish, otherwise it might inhibit people from being members. But hey thats just my two cents.
