The Rules thread....
« on: February 12, 2016, 07:55:18 pm »

I debated on even doing it this year because I "think" we have it down. But in keeping with tradition and we may have some new folks joining us....I'm goin to.

I'll keep it short. We are known across this board as the civilized bunch. I intend for the spirit of that to remain in tact. We are also known for our game threads.....that will not change.

We moderate this area much different than some other boards because of the above. Some say we moderate too heavily, and I don't consider that an insult. A lot of time and effort is put into EI and I want that to be understood.

We aren't going to bash the kids. This is not debatable. It is a zero tolerance policy. This is your warning. A healthy debate about baseball decisions is welcomed. Fire DVH and the like will be removed. I don't mind you questioning a call or a decision, but give an educated and reasonable explanation as to why you feel as you do.

We aren't going to call other posters a name. Debate away but do so with respect. We also aren't going to bait proper into an argument.....you will be asked to leave. I don't apologize for that.

Pictures are encouraged.

Baseball is a beautiful, wonderful game and most of the regulars here take it very seriously. We encourage you to join in, but we are happy with low numbers. If you can't play by our rules that have worked for years, we would rather you not post here.

I think this season is going to be a blast. Hope to meet some of you. Pics are encouraged.

Go hogs

If a poster is given to carrying on nonsense just in the spirit of "having fun," they'll need to do that elsewhere.

I'm someone who posts little but reads almost every thread in this forum. I find EI as the place to be because of these rules and because this place isn't like the other topics (MMQB, Hoops, Politics...). I'm thankful for that fact because it doesn't matter what happens, people go crazy and then drive everyone else crazy... No drama is what I like and EI is pretty much drama free. Thanks guys...

It's drama free because the mods delete tons of posts that they don't like.  That's why this is by far the worst board on Hogville.... no opinions that don't match up with the moderators opinions permitted
I could go into detail about how wrong you are but, it would just start exactly what you came in here to do. This is hands down the best forum on Hogville! If you are a baseball purists you would understand. Everything flows in the discussions to the point that most guys and gals like me don't post because it already been said. However, if you feel the need to continue, I'm sure SPAL or Wilson or one of the other great mods we have here can explain it in more detail.

I could but I won't. He knows ...he just needs to have his opinion heard. You can't please everyone. I've long held the belief that this board thrives on quality over quantity so I'm not going to beg people to hang out here if they feel the way this guy does. He is welcome to leave and never come back. He won't be missed. He is probably fortunate I saw it before Wilson did. I'm not gonna moderate it any more than I did, but if Wilson sees it and wants to.....by all means.

Actually, I probably removed less posts and had to moderate less this year than I ever have. Interesting timing for this .

I was thinking the same thing. I bet I removed fewer than half a dozen posts the entire season.

Some folks miss the point that this board is run the way it is because that is the way the vast majority of our regular posters (and readers) want it to be run.

Speaking as someone who visits infrequently, posts even less and who has had a post removed, I do wish someone would say why a post is removed (via a PM) - not for the purposes of starting a running discussion via PM but more for clarification purposes.  I get that a "when in Rome" type of conduct is expected is this forum but it can be a bit frustrating to those who have wandered by and try to interact here for the first few times.  Just an idea...

I honestly don't remember removing any of your posts. I will say this....if a person quotes a post that gets removed, so does the quoted. Maybe that's what happened.

As far as sending a PM....it's difficult to moderate a heavily populated game thread. My goal is to keep it clean. I wanna be so quick, people don't even have time to notice it. So, most of my time is spent monitoring. If a post gets removed, I'll gladly explain why if you ask.

And another thing.....99% of the time, I'm the one responsible for removing posts. I don't ask the other mods to worry with it. They make sure the graphics and line score and everything else is taken care of. That's not to say they won't remove, but they do the other things. Wilson will also step in and remove stuff, but my hope is to never have him have to moderate.

So, if you get something removed... I'm usually the one you'll need to ask.

One more thing.....spend some time over here early in the season to get a feel for the forum and how it operates. Late may and June is not the best time to be learning how to post in a game thread.

If baseball isn't your love and you're just a fan of Whatever sport the hogs are playing, this forum may be hard to get involved in. We discuss the game at the core, we discuss rules, we talk about baseball. I realize baseball isn't the most popular sport, but for those of us who love it, we love talking about it.  That's not for everyone.

This reminds me of something I thought about last night when I was watching LSU and Oregon State play. I watched almost all of that game not because I was rooting for either team, and not even because I just wanted to watch baseball. I watched, and continued to watch, because I wanted to listen to Kyle Peterson and crew talk about the game. That's not something I get with any other sport. It's the same reason why I am looking forward to watching Louisville and Florida tonight.

Exactly. It's really such a deep game.
