Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

If mods really want to push this rule, I suggest a longer grace period. Say 2-4 weeks for posters get more aware of the new change.

I would say I appreciate the spirit of the rule but it's a tall order to carry it out with good balance between crushing too hard on harmless banters and too lenient.

Good luck everybody!

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

I agree with the suggestion for 2-4 weeks before full implementation instead of one.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

The main problem I have with this rule is the fact I don't see it changing much for the forum.

I guess the whole idea was to bring back activity from users who didn't post in GM in the past, due to being put off by the nature of posts in there... However, so far I haven't seen any difference. GM still has the same people posting in there. I know many people who post in player/non tennis chat threads who won't post in GM, and still won't even with this new rule. Heck, there is some people I know that choose not to post in GM, but still oppose this rule... What I also find kind of annoying is the fact that the person who suggested this rule in the first place hasn't increased his activity since it was implemented. He wanted the chance to make the environment on this forum better for himself, and others who feel the same way as him, but so far he hasn't taken advantage.

THIS

They just select the two posters that agreed with it and claim 'we came up with the rules and it is what the people want'.

Oh well, it just means we have to be more creative and careful in saying what we want. Can't believe I'd see the day I had to be careful to express what I thought.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

OK. Let me see if I got this new rule straight.

Then, this kind of avatars will be forbidden for today on?

Player bashing is sometimes funny. Bulzilla aka Manofsteel spamming every board with his BS is not.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

This forum needs to be unmoderated. The truth is that people come here for the trolling and the flame wars. People who want serious tennis discussions go somewhere else.

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

I don't see any change from the previous proposal. In fact, it seems to be even more set in stone and restrictive now. Against.

How does everyone feel about this being put to a vote?

Re: Player Bashing Rule: Feedback

Whoever had the idea of splitting the GM make-up into a 'normal discussion forum' and a 'banter forum section' had it spot on. Keep the former extremely civil and insightful, with analysis, and the latter for the banter, the nicknames, the tard wars and the roastings. I'd visit both myself. That's an ideal solution.

This is destroying MTF, again, it is a SPORTS FORUM.. we are fans who discuss sports.. everyone has the right to have an opinion about not liking some player or another, who cares if someone makes some snide comment about say Murray.. call him mugray, I really don't care.
