Re: new thread probation

I'm convinced Matty paid that poster to start such an asinine thread, just to prove his point...

Re: new thread probation

How about for those unsure of the use of a thread, PM a mod for their approval.

Re: new thread probation

Yeah, don't hesitate to ask us questions. Remember we may not always get you an answer right away though.

But at the same time, don't use us as an excuse for not knowing the rules or lacking common sense. We're not here to babysit you

Re: new thread probation

I'm really gonna miss all the "Omg! The Skins Front Office Sucks/Dan Snyder should suck a railroad spike" threads.

..I guess I'll just have to deal with the parking lot threads for my main source of entertainment now.

Re: new thread probation

Always. I usually spent the months of February to July in the Parking Lot and just graze the Locker Room from time to time to avoid the utter stupidity of some of the threads that pop up during the offseason. Then again, without those threads, people won't know what to do, or won't be able to hijack.

But for those under 1,000 posts or something like that... you should temporarily redirect the user to the search page, or some kind of "Are you sure your not posting a retarded thread?" pop up message...

If people are too lazy to use google, they're probably too lazy to read the forum guidelines. This might be able to curb some of the duplicates and such...
Some of us under 1000 are not as irresponsible as others . . . jerk.
lol

Read it again. "Start of the thread", not each individual response to a thread. I doubt there are so many threads started each day that it would overwhelm anyone, except maybe those bored with the content. Obviously asking a MOD to review and approve/disapprove each individual response would be overwhelming.

In response to this please be aware that posting new threads is a privilege, one that will be taken away if you can't follow two simple guidelines.

#1, before you post you really need to review the first page of threads on whatever forum you are posting on. (Sometimes when there is breaking news duplicates happen and that's understandable and I wouldn't penalize someone for that. Also, I'm not talking about similar topics that may have taken place weeks or months ago. A duplicate is an obvious repeated thread, usually some sort of news and it's right there in plain sight on the first page of threads.)

#2 don't waste our time with whatever mindless thought is running through your head at the moment. Think before you post, try to imagine what type of discussion your thread will generate. Is it going to be meaningful discussion, or mindless banter? If it's the latter please don't bother.

Again, posting new threads is a privilege, one that will be taken away if you can't follow the two simple guidelines outlined above. This "new thread probation" as I call it has actually been in place for a while, I just thought it was time to make everyone aware of the possible consequences of repeatedly posting duplicate or worthless threads.

If your new thread privileges get taken away, it's for good. Sorry, no second chances.

Any questions let me know.
