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.

  • Request: Please let's make this a DVR-friendly forum

    I'd like to humbly request that forum users help make this a DVR-friendly forum by not spoiling the day's games for the people who have yet to watch them. This will allow people who have watched the Michigan game to talk about the game in the game thread without having other games spoiled for them. Otherwise, you have to avoid the forum for a couple of days. So, I'd like to propose the following guidelines:

    1. Please do not talk about an ongoing game outside of its appropriate thread. For instance, please do not make references to whatever game OSU is playing or just played in the Michigan thread and do not talk about a non-B1G game in the B1G thread. If somebody doesn't want the OSU game spoiled, then they can avoid the OSU thread and if they don't want the FSU-Ole Miss game spoiled, they can avoid the "Rest of CF" thread.

    2. Please do not put any spoilers (i.e. scores, smack talk, references to a choke or an upset, etc) in topic titles until at least a day after the game.

    3. Please observe these guidelines until Sunday. Give the DVR folks 24 hours to catch up on their games.

    If it's okay with the other mods, I'd like to leave this stickied for a few weeks.

    Thanks, everyone

    Completely reasonable. Well keep the thread stuck as well.

    Do it folks.

        I agree its a reasonable request.

        We may have to start a couple new threads, but we will make them non-stuck threads so they will age off as they are unused. I have no problem with starting a few new threads to take care of the various conversations.

        I say lets go for it.

        Thanks for the suggestion Hanni.

            Season - Game Day Threads - Proposal

            How about something like this:

            Lets pick about five (5) games of significant national importance every week, and open a thread for each of them. After the game is over, we'll leave the threads open for post-game discussion for about three days afterward, then eliminate them, and go to the next week's games. This will be in addition to our permanent Michigan game thread (which will never leave) and the M-Borg Resistance Thread for Paul and the Ohio people.

            We have a ND thread dedicated to Clashmore Mike that will remain permanent, and not be deleted.

            Sound fair?

              Works for me. We just need to be mindful of what thread we're in when commenting on other games.

                We can "stick" the five threads, and put a icon next to them so they are easily found. Then, lets say on the Tuesday (Noon?) following the game(s) we will just delete them, and add the next five games for the following week. That way we're not all cluttered up with dozens of threads from past weeks.

                  How do you avoid seeing the scores on the ticker as they update...? ;)

                    For what it's worth, I think that the current structure of the forum is adequate to handle all of the games. I'd just like to keep discussions about each game confined to one thread until a day after the game.

                      How about a single thread for important games of national interest? I misread your previous post, Liney. Didn't realize there would be a separate thread for each game.

                        We could do it either way, Mike.

                        I'm fine with one consolidated thread or the separate ones.

                          Too many stuck threads, Liney.

                          We have a thread around CFB for that. If you want a consolidated thread for a given week's games, that might make sense but 5 new threads, all stuck, not my favorite.
