1. bruce was getting too agitated at being ignored by someone he was clearly hostile towards and had used his first opportunity to basically tell Fale to fuck off. Any surprises that Fale didn't want to interact with him?

2. It is completely up to Fale whether he answers a question or not. That is 100% his prerogative. Asking it repeatedly or differently is just spamming the thread.

3. He is now butthurt and trying to use the same bullying tactics on Fale with us admin.

bruce bruce you need to calm down. You got too worked up over Fale and let him get the better of you. He was under no obligation to answer any of us, least of all you with the way you with the way you spoke to him and treated him while he was here. Now you are doing to us.

Take a break. If we admin were the nazi's you made us out to be I would have deleted your account a long long time ago. You have to be a complete and utter retard to get banned permanently from here (no offence jonno jonno edd @macker).

Please stop sooking over your ban, stop reporting posts unnecessarily and try changing your tone with Fale. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar though that ship has probably sailed for you and Fale...
Welly we disagree a lot and that isn't going to change. I appreciate your comments. I always do. However my bitch is not with you or the other mods and I am disappointed that Tahjay has dragged you into it. People will make up their own minds. I am out if here. I have a game to watch.

I'd like some clarification on this forums policy on mocking people with mental disabilities.

Cause it seems to be open season on them around here. With all the hard work the NRL does on helping people with depression etc, I'm not sure those kinds of insults are in keeping with the spirit of the League...

Used the bunch of sticks homophobic term. He's lucky he didn't get banned. Again x 5. He knows better. Not my job to go around editing and deleting comments that fall foul of the forums rules. I'll just delete the lot. Pity cause it was a good post that he spent some time on.

I'll reiterate.

NO HOMOPHOBIC, RACIST OR SEXIST COMMENTS ALLOWED.

Love for someone to test me on this right now...

Under the British (and NZ) laws of libel anybody is allowed to express an honestly held opinion.

Where the problems start for forums is where people express opinions that are not honestly held. They do it to cause trouble and start flame wars, and it pisses the other posters off big time.

This is where even handed moderation is essential.

No policy that I'm aware of or the following posts by you would have been deleted. You know you are on very thin ice everytime you are on here right jonno jonno. Drop the bullshit crusade and stop wasting our time...

I want Daryl Halligan to have a cage match with a speech therapist, cause he sounds like a fucken retard.

And if Konrad could cut out the turnovers in our own 20 that would also be ace...

The other edge I think we'll see Cappy pick Ayshford (124 caps) and Wright (111 caps) just on experience. Cappy must be thinking that SJ and Sheck can cut that right edge to shreads if they just have a couple of outside back who position themselves well. If he's not thinking that then he's a fucken retard IMO.

All I can say is I'm glad your not a PC nut bag Mt Welly... We should be allowed to hurl insults at each other without legal repercussions like what's happening in Germany today...

And I'm just a humble warriors fan, with no insider connections, so I guess my observations don't really matter.

Going to be very interesting to see how these next two weeks play out. My cospiratard theories will be confirmed if history repeats itself.

Talking shit about cyclists now? Stop being a fucken retard.;)

As for the vegans, they are a bunch of cu**s.:p

BTW there are many users here who dont post but rate posts offtopic/inappropriate. Soon those buttons will disappear for non posting posters as it all adds extra work removing them. In these cases many use it to 'dislike' a post and just adds work to remove it. In some cases legitimate posts by users have been automatically hidden due to these 'negative' ratings. And people who continue to give those ratings as a means of disagreeing will have their ratings authorisation completely removed. So please...if you accidently give offtopic/inappropriate ratings, please fix it by clicking correct button. Its a small subset of users most of whom never post, 99.5% of users who post on this site wont be impacted (except those who have whinged about moderation on this thread...jokes!).
I've seen this as well it will be people that don't post randomly marking relevant posts off topic or harmless post inappropriate.

Grevus mentioned one I've my posts having too many negative reactions as it was marked off topic even though it was related to the game the thread was about. I've seen this a bit

Is it worth upping the limit from two up a bit?
Or can there be a balance as some that get hidden end up having 5-10 positive reactions but are marked negative twice and get hidden.

I think the idea of the forum self regulating itself a bit is a good one but like you and other mods have mentioned a lot of people use the those buttons as a dislike button or who knows what for with the off topic posts.

The game day threads often have posts marked off topic which are relevant to the game in some cases listing the score and various points and how things worked out. Not sure how things directly listing events from the game can be off topic unless someone hasn't watched it.

The other funny ones are the sack the coach threads. Someone explains their reasons for sacking the coach and it's off topic.:confused:

Oh hell yeah, TBH like on The Greenhouse it's a lot like here, resident experts, people arguing about who's at fault, useless coach, useless players, who to sack, cheating referees, cheating opposition, the corrupt NRL and oddly "We need to play like the Warriors". Actually one of the funniest posts on the Green House was, "We are the new old Warriors", a team of good players too busy believing their own press but too stupid on the field to win, coached by a moron. Was actually like being on here.:D

Confirming that the above has now been implemented.

All users will be able to LIKE a post.
All users who have posted atleast once will be able to rate a post as FUNNY.
All users who have posted a certain number (around ~30-50) will be able to rate a post as INAPPROPRIATE or OFFTOPIC.

Users who continue to rate a post as INAPPROPRIATE or OFFTOPIC for posts they disagree with will have their ability to rate posts taken away.

We didnt want to do this, but there has been a large influx of users who have started marking posts as inappropriate or offtopic as a way to negate a persons opinion, in some cases causing their posts to be hidden.

To reiterate:
Ratings.PNG


Like/Agree = If you like or agree with the post.
Funny = If you found the post to be funny.
Inappropriate = Post is offensive/spam/personal attack/illegal
Offtopic = Post is totally offtopic and dragging the discussion to a totally new tangent.

Users are welcome to create a new thread, if they want to discuss something that may be considered offtopic if they post it in a current thread. In most cases a thead will already exist, so please use the search feature.

If in doubt, contact a mod.

EDIT - We have decided to remove OFFTOPIC rating altogether for a variety of reasons.

As always, if you have an issue with a post made (not because you disagree...) use the REPORT button to make us aware of it.
