These include changes in forum rules, added/deleted or modified content, new moderators and possible partnerships.

Every year we seek the input of our members before we meet in our own forum and discuss the ideas we think would work best. And this year is no different.

However, we decided this time to make things a bit different by starting it off with an April Fool's joke that as moderators there was too much internal strife going on so some of us were defecting. Some of you took the joke quite personally and are angry. I guess that's part of what makes an April Fool's joke good. More importantly it shows the passion we all have for the Redskins and this site. We did the joke a day early so it wouldn't be as obvious, and in fact it was supposed to extend well into Saturday with even Extremeskins moderators getting involved. Thanks also to Schneed10 and TheMalcolmConnection for playing along. Don't worry, banning TMC was all part of the hoax.

But we don't want to mislead you guys any further. And we apologize that a lot of you got quite upset.

We assure you that there will be no split. All the moderators are fully dedicated to making this site the best. And to do that we need all of you. So please check out the "How Can We Improve" (How Can We Improve?) thread and give us suggestions of what you want to see for the 2006 season.

I got stuck at "...Rosanne Rosanna Danna....nevermind." Wasn't "Nevermind" the tagline of Emily Latella?

2. Perhaps the most important guideline of this forum is this, please treat your fellow forum members with the utmost respect at all times, NO EXCEPTIONS. Remember that there is a real person behind that funny screen name. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. If you cannot voice your thoughts and opinions with respect and thoughtfulness towards your fellow forum members, please find another forum to post on.

3. I don't believe in censoring the forum, so swearing is "allowed", but that certainly does not mean it is encouraged. We understand that the occasional F-bomb may fly, but don't make it a regular part of your postings. Try to keep in mind that there are people from all different age ranges, backgrounds and beliefs on the forum. Some people might not appreciate your use of language and quite possibly may be offended. (PLEASE NOTE: This item has been recently revised and the 'F' word is now a censored item. We will continue to monitor this and make any necessary changes in the future as needed.)

4. Keeping with the self-censoring idea, please refrain from using any racial slurs or anything that might be viewed as racist and/or discriminatory towards minorities, women, religions, etc. Those that don't adhere to this guideline will be dealt with accordingly and will likely face immediate ban from the forum.

5. It can't be stressed enough, don't let discussions become personal in nature. Sometimes the best policy is to agree to disagree and move on. We all have differing opinions from time to time and that's what makes for great discussions, but it's also what can lead to heated disagreements that become personal in nature. We understand that this is natural and can happen to anyone, but please don't let things get out of hand.

If you find yourself being sucked into a conversation of this type, it's best to just let the moderators deal with the situation. Keep in mind we're all here because of our love for the Redskins, not to argue and sling insults.

A note about our moderators/staff: Our forum staff is comprised of volunteers that choose to give up their own free time to help build a better community here. They have the ability to edit/delete/merge/close posts at their own discretion.

If you disagree with a moderator's decision to edit/delete/merge/close a posting, please PM a moderator to attempt to resolve the issue in a civil manner.

Personal attacks on the forum staff will not be tolerated and will likely result in a quick and permanent ban from the forum.
The "joke" never should have been posted as an Announcement. Getting a bunch of people to lie and contune to make up more lies is Lying. Many people's way of posting and reasons for being here were insulted and I'd argue the sites own TOS were broken.

Whatever.

I'll look for the Redskins related posts around here and "hope" ya'll are telling the truth this time.

Hail Skins

I thought you were said a couple of posts ago you were going to say your piece and let it go. Apparently you can't.

As I said in the first post the mods apologize to those who got genuinely upset by this. And for the record, that does not include "virtually everyone on the site"

It was an innocent joke that admittedly got out of hand. We've learned our lesson. In the future the mods won't assume that people can take a simple joke and not make ridiculous comparisons to joking about divorcing your spouse or telling some kid his parents died. We figured we'd have some fun, but apparently that's not possible with some of you.

Re: Fools Gold

Guys everyone needs to chill. It was a joke(and a pretty obvious one too if I say so myself). If you can't take a joke in the spirit it was meant in then I am sorta sad for you. I know everyone loves it here and doesn't want anything to happen but for Gibbs' sake settle down. It was just a little joke.

Re: Fools Gold

I enjoyed it!
I didn't fall for it at first but the "Mr. Kyer" thing got me.
Then I remembered Tafkas is hispanic, we are not level headed or fair in a fight so I knew it was a joke.

"Mr. Kyer" i think mattyk needs a new nickname!

Also...

All the defectors should be forced to use a new avatar. I vote for this one.

Re: Fools Gold

Even those who are pissed off have to admit the whole live audio/video from the fedex parking lot debate was funny as hell. Matty cracked my ass up.

OK Mike you're getting ridiculous. It's time to lighten up, you are taking yourself WAY too seriously.

Everyone chill. Once the dust settles everything will be back to normal and we'll be back to talking about the Skins.

Re: Fools Gold

Alright, I see this thread headed to the toilet very quickly... let's drop the entire April Fools Day thing and get back to talking about football and the Skins. Deepest apologies to all who were offended. Let's move on.

I hope I didn't train-wreck my credibility. Oh yeah, I didn't have any to begin with.

As Matty (Mr. Kyer) said after that started, 'That was a fastball over the middle'.
