I suppose it then becomes a "chicken or the egg" quandary, but I have seen more posts/wrong post posts here than I have in a long time. Yeah, decipher that! lol...
In fact, I have been here nearly 2 years and I have never seen chatter like this. (yeah, I know I have only few posts...I usually observe w/o comment...but I have been a member for a while).
Seems like a polarizing soapbox has been created between moderators and the ever-posting rookies, or just plain ole' miscreants. A lot of stuff is posted here that doesn't belong....I concede.....however, there are a bunch of threads here that do regard to Fantasy Football Talk.....(most in my opinion)....despite the fact that one topic could be posted legitimately in three or four different forums....arguing the fact is like splitting hairs...whooooo cares!
The bottom line is that the FFC is being marketed well, based on the number of new applicants this year. The new guys try to get into the forums with the most people in order to increase the likelihood of a quick response. They don't know protocol. However, I understand the need to police some semblance of protocol. Bottom line, it seems like you mods are cracking down this year. I applaud your effort, but don't think it needs to be so deafening. Let a few ride.......
I know that I have the obligatory "Shut up" coming...so let me have it...LOL!
Just had to get my opinion out there.....
And by the way.......I Know!.......This thread needs to be moved to General Talk!...lol
Im no mod, but I did post some 'wrong forum' type posts in a couple threads, but then stopped when i realized EVERY thread was about what was going on in games.
The problem is that while talking about the game if fantasy foorball related, it completely floods this forum. You have 10 people talking about Q. Griffin in 10 different threads, and then a new one is made if he scores another TD, or if someone makes a good play. The Game Commentary forum is there for a reason and it should be used.
The biggest problem comes when someone wants to know some actual fantasy information. Anyone looking for news on the Charles Rogers injury, or what was up w/ Rattay or S. Alexander, either cant find a thread on the topic in the 1st 2 pages b/c sooooooooooooo many threads on games were started, or just post a new thread. So now we have multiple threads going on everything and its just a mess.
I dont even like posting in the fantasy football talk forum, b/c so many new threads are made every 5 minutes that anything i write wont even be read or a new thread will be made on the same topic. Or just in general half the threads are pointless or have been discussed to death
The mods do an excellent job here and their services are much appreciated, but it being the 1st week of the season, things are just going to get crazy. It would be impossible to move every thread to the correct forum, b/c they are coming in too fast.
In order for this forum to remain informative and true to its name, the members need to take a proactive approach and actually post threads in the appropriate forums, and use the search button to see if the topic has been discussed. I mean half the time there will be the EXACT same thread 2 down from the top, but people are too lazy to even look down the list.
