Game Time Posting Rule Change: IMPORTANT

Nadine

6,682 views

blog-0413719001410523127.pngWe are modifying our moderation rules for game time, in response to your feedback.

We will NOT be creating the post game threads. Posters can create post game threads......but please, clearly title them and do not create duplicate topics.

We WILL continue to lock game time discussions that are created or are occurring anywhere but in the game day thread.

If you are not familiar with our game day forum, it is here: http://forums.colts.com/forum/14-colts-game-day/

Moderators create and lock game day threads (at game start and end) in the game day forum. While the thread is live you can reach the most current page of the thread by clicking the Game Day link in the main menu.

Please help keep the site organized and do NOT create duplicate game time discussions. If you do, they will be locked.

Hopefully this process will work for everyone. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

I know alot of the members enjoy conversing with each other on gameday, and I can imagine it would be hard to keep up with everything in one thread, but on the other hand you don't need 30 different threads on one game.  Hopefully this will work.

 

I personally try to stay away from the threads on gameday...   I want to be able to watch the game and not have it tainted by the opinions of others,  but that's just me.

Is the plan to lock these threads about 2 days after?  1 day?

 

I would also advise some of the newer posters to "Look" before they post.  Please see if there is already a topic.

 

I also thank Superman did a very good job last week of merging, locking and moderating.  That was a tough couple of days for all mods.  Good job!

The plan is to merge into those threads.  If people continue to post about the for example: offense in the Broncos game beyond the 2 days that's fine.

 

If the thread devolves into something else.....say for example general back and forth of trich and the trade.....then we'll likely lock the thread

 

But we'll wait and see.  Our first goal is to keep the boards from being repetitive and disorganized on game day and the day after, that's when we get the most complaints about it

 

But just FYI mods are fans too and they don't want to spend the whole game policing the mess that people create so, I expect some mess

 

If certain posters continue disregarding their responsiblities here, then likely the'll get a warn

 

Or perhaps a demotion to rookie.....that will prevent them from creating a thread and perhaps make our point with them should they not understand and continue to make the boards a mess

The immediate closure of game day threads only serves to prevent real conversation and having 20 threads for one game is a failure of epic proportions. I'm not sure who you guys have chatted with but maybe such changes should be left to a vote by the people who use the forum on a daily basis. The game day threads at least stay on topic were as the others in the main forum are derailed by posters who are only trying to cause problems or are simply trolling for comments.

I'm glad you like the game day threads.  Sorry you don't like the post game threads.

 

We have talked to members who use the site everyday and consensus is that they like creating their own post game threads.  They feel that to not allow them to do so stifles discussion.

 

Agree that it can be a bit messy but that's the nature of discussion boards.
