  1. Problem Liking Posts

    The like feature is very new for us and I'm still trying to figure out it's role for our community. My hope was that it would encourage members to increase the quality of their posts. Instead, it's just a way for members to say 'I agree' or 'this is funny'. The most liked posts are basically one liners. I fear that it is encouraging more jokes and memes at the expense of quality in-depth replies. Why spend a long time on a quality reply when you can post a silly one liner and get double the likes? Even worse is when I see blatant rule violations receive 'likes', as that just encourages more rule violations. I'm not going to remove the feature, but limiting the likes to a reasonable number is needed. On top of the issues already mentioned, members have been trying to game the reputation system since it started. A couple have registered 2nd usernames to like their own posts. I've seen a couple discussions on the forum basically saying "We can't let a (insert rival) fan be first on the leader board. Everyone like (member) to pass them." Friends have gone back and forth liking every post each other makes. Without a reasonable limit, I'm afraid it would just lead to a lot more silly childish games. Right now we have a tiered system that rewards the vet members with more likes. New members have 0 likes, Members 10 likes and Vet members 20 likes per day. Maybe this is something we can bump up or add more tiers to in the future, but I want to wait a little longer to see to see how this feature matures.
  2. OBJ videotaped smoking weed

    Keep the comments to football and OBJ. Will he be suspended? Will this hurt his contact negotiations? How will the Giants replace him?
  3. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Drop the religious discussion.
  4. Long thread page links

    No. This is a commercial software package and I don't have access to the back end code. I can modify some minor design issues, but there isn't an option to change this.
  5. Peanut Tillman: FBI!

  6. Jonathan Martin Threats Shut Down High School

    This is not NFL news and there is nothing football related to discuss with this topic.
  7. Forum Glitch

    I've been unable to reproduce this error. It seems to only be happening to a small handful of users. We have 1000s of members visiting the site each day with out issue. From the very little information in this topic, it seem to be happening for users at work or users from an ISP in Canada. My guess is that this ISP in Canada and some of your work ISPs are occasionally blocking some elements of the forum web page. This is causing it to 'glitch'.
  8. Ad blocking the entire site?

    Please remember that our sponsors cover the costs of running this forum. Without ads there wouldn't be a forum. We will try to make the ads as unobtrusive as possible. You should not see any kind of app redirects, downloads or other invasive or obnoxious ads. Ads should not cover the content or break the layout. If an ad is doing this on your browser, it is due to a technical issue with the advertisement or a problem with your browser, computer, or phone. If you are having problems, try clearing your browser cache and cookies, then reboot your computer or phone. That will fix a majority of technical issues. If that doesn't work, send me a PM and I will look into it. Do not discuss the ads on the forum.
  9. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Drop the political discussion.
  10. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Let's drop all the political discussion.
  11. I'm not aware of any way to do this.
  12. One of our ad networks was having a technical issue and was causing the redirects for a few members. It should be fixed now.
  13. RB Kareem Hunt Accused of... Pushing & Shoving

    Stick to the topic. Discuss Hunt and the Chiefs and keep it to football.

  15. 49ers LB Reuben Foster arrested for domestic violence

    Five pages of discussion and there is almost no discussion of football going on. This topic is pretty much a text book example of how NOT to post in the NFL news forum. In this topic members used the arrest as an excuse to discuss all kinds of non-football related topics, like Kobe Bryant, assault rifles, STDs, and gun laws. Also members managed to troll the Cowboys and insult people from California. The only thing that should have been discussed in this topic is Reuben Foster and the 49ers. Will Foster be suspended? Will he be released? How will the 49ers replace him? Since the off-season has arrived, it is a good time to remind members that this forum is for football discussion only. That means that with news of any off-field incidents or arrests the discussion should only involve how the news will effect the team and player. The discussion should never become a debate about crime and punishment, a member's personal experiences with police, how you feel about the arrest or crime, etc.
