FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

            "Double posts" seem to happen to me with about every post here recently, I've had it happen here before on occasion but recently its every post... I use other vBulletin boards and have no issues 'double' posting and no, I never hit the button twice... It is taking much, much longer to post a message as it takes a good 10-15 seconds before it finally publishes my double posts... Noticed someone else double posted recently too, just wondering if others are having the same issue and what OS, browser your using...

            I'm using Chrome right now on my Mac, I'll probably test out Safari to see if the issue persists.

              I use Firefox. No problems with double posting for me


              • #37
                No problems on IE--I suspect Mac Chrome may be the issue.

                  There's been some issue with folks on the lions side too...not double posting necessarily but lag.

                      Too bad there's not a window here that shows who's logged in when you're around. Its a handy feature I see at other boards, particularly when you know the people personally.

                        Actually there kinda is, if someone has a 'green' light next to one of their messages, they are online.

                              There is a list at the bottom of the main page that lists those who are logged in - but only if they allow themselves to be listed.

                              Scroll down here:

                              As for the lag, I'm sorry. Not sure what's causing it. Double posts often happen during lag times. But the iPad/iPhone often double post all on their own...unrelated.

                                If you go to the main page the people that are logged on (that aren't hidden) show up at the bottom.
