With the draft coming up I think it's worth revisiting the [URL="http://www.thewarpath.net/announcement.php?f=2"]forum guidelines[/URL].

Specifically the part about reading before you post. It's become a bit of an issue lately in case you haven't noticed.

When posting a link to a breaking news item, at least take a quick look back at the last couple of pages in a thread to see if it's already been posted. Chances are it has. And try a search once in a while. Don't assume that just because [B]you[/B] haven't been on the forum for a few hours that nobody else has posted it already. And if your excuse is well I don't have the time to check to see if it's already been posted, I'll go ahead and save you some more time by saying don't even bother to post it then.

Pretty easy right? Before you post... stop, read, search, and then consider posting. Ok?

Aka "I want to be the first to break news so bad I won't even do due diligence and check to see if it's already been posted, because 99.9% of the time it already has been."

Fine. In case you have not heard RFK is being torn down and a new stadium will be built called FEDEX.

Cool.. I think that the draft forum kinda hides away what we are talking about most at this time but it is cool having one.. that and sometimes 50 page threads with one title but have evolved into other things can keep people from noticing things. Too much story under one headline. I'll do my best though.

People. You can make your thread pages longer so you have fewer. I list 40 replies per page rather than 10. It's better. Do it.

Doesn't change it being everything under the sun in one thread though.

I don't post new threads usally anymore for just that. I would be linking an article and someone beat me to it by a matter of minutes. It happened a couple times, a few times I didn't check. I usually post original stuff, but have had too many "doh" moments.

We can definitely use more new threads, we'll work on that.

Sweet. You guys have been doing great with the qb rumors, visit tracking, fa/trade stuff. The Skins trading for number 2 becoming the everything rg3 thread was the one that stood out the most to me. Obviously I keep coming back so not trying to make a huge deal.

That's not an excuse for what we've seen too much of lately, which is seeing people post what was just written a post before them.

But I've started several fresh new threads anyway, hopefully to make it easier

True.. but had it been an active thread under that title they likely would've seen it. I try to always scroll back a few pages to check for stuff but yeah, obviously that hasn't been the case with many lately.

Hence the need for new descript threads. Better to follow and much better for searching.. both internally and through the googles
