Thread: Football only board

  1. #1

    Football only board

    On the eve of another big football weekend, the main board is looking very preseason. Time to separate the other stuff from the football posts?

    Couldn't agree more.

    Don't think there's any need. Just keep the spoilers off the tidy football threads. Mike seems to be addressing that.

    Other boards seem to have a number of different sections eg https://www.villatalk.com

    I'm not that interested in our politics board, so i avoid it and therefore don't get irritated by the same old people discussing the same old boring shite.
    If we had a non-football section then people who only want to talk football could avoid it.

    People who only want to talk football manage to avoid non-football threads just fine on here, it's not a difficult task.

    Then there's the people who claim to only want to talk football but post all day long in non-football threads.

    There's a big difference but it's very easy to tell who is who.

    I couldn't agree less, this board is best as one big melting pot.

    The board became a poorer place when it was split in two.

    Re: Football only board

    Personally I don't mind seeing a bit of humour in a football thread, after all the game itself, and this board, is supposed to be fun isn't it?
    The age old problem though is how much humour is acceptable before it crosses the line and spoils the thread.
    The tricky bit is that for each of us that line is in a different place.

    How could we accommodate Mrs Steve R, if it was only football

    (I can't put a after it, as it might upset someone

    Re: Football only board

    While there should be football threads pinned at the top, the strength of this board is it's varied discussion points (including political) and shunting these off to another board kills that variety as people stop looking for them.

    If you want more football talk then start a football thread or add to an existing thread.

    Nutshell


    Oh, and ignore the non football threads if the content/ personnel upset you

    I like a bit of everything. football, the off topic stuff and the pisstaking, but it's frustrating when you've got people with no interest in football derailing the football threads. They know who they are.

    If people have got no interest in talking football there's plenty of threads they can post their unfunny quips on without derailing tidy threads.

    I think the board should only split in times such as elections or nuclear war

    Not going to split the board any further. Moving politics out was the right decision.

    I'm trying to pay more attention to keeping decent threads 'flippancy' free. People who derail them will get an infraction. 6 points will get you a ban.

    Flippancy is worth 1 point, abusing other members will get you 3 points

    Surely that's a nebulous thing though - what is the objective definition of a "decent" thread? Since time immemorial ( well, since internet created ) threads often start out as one thing and evolve organically into something else. Doesn't mean people set out to intend to derail.

    My fear would be that the approach could lead to some questionable infractions being handed out which would then erode confidence in the forum management.

    That's abuse in my book. Three points to Mr Morris. Oh and come on the Villa.

    you should know me by now that generally i don't give a shit. But sometimes decent threads get ruined by honing in on a spelling mistake or someone feeling the need to post just because they think they need to comment on every thread with a 'flippant' quip.

    just trying to make it a better experience.

    Exactly this.

    The politics board is much better since they kicked the football riffraff out, and I urge the comedians to do the same thing and send the leather chasers on their way.

    Can't be easy, I am not suggesting a humourless place, but there are fewer posters than ever and when every post becomes a "look at how witty I am" effort a few posts in, it's not hard to see why football enthusiasts say "why bother".

    Who is claiming they only want to talk football? Not me, but I think it would be worthwhile splitting the general stuff from the football stuff. If that gives some people a smaller audience to "amuse" so be it.

    Let's all keep the football threads and other serious threads sensible and keep the daft stuff to any other threads. And let's all show a little more respect to fellow CCFC fans.
