    Does rule #4 apply to youtube videos for the youtube video thread?

    Typing for myself, I've always tried to include a warning if a link or video contains "adult language." The Christian Bale link is a prime example.

    Yes. If there are posts that violate this rule, please report them accordingly. Thank you.

    What about the Bale link? It was left alone so I assume it was okay?

    You had to click another link to hear the audio after clicking MY link, is that why?

    I never clicked the link, but assuming it violates the rules of the site as you said, moving forward, links like that should not be posted here (disclaimer or not).

    Okay, gotcha!

    Thanks for the edification.

    Site Feedback/Questions

    If this has been discussed, previously, just ignore.

    I just read what I considered to be a fine thread in the Minor League Forum ( re the Reds 2 latest Latin signees
    doing well in ST). Upon completition I wanted to give
    "rep" to the thread content, some constructive, divergent
    povs regarding base-running, etc.

    In the old system rep had unintended consequences
    when focused on thread authorship.
    If rep were given to and accumulated on the threads themselves, independent of the thread author, and not given on replys, would it not be useful in evaluating
    thread content, style, interaction, etc?

    tx.

    The reputation system has been disabled for the reasons you mentioned, but one possibility I initially considered is the ability to give individual posts "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" without having any actual consequences on an individual's ability to post. Its purpose it to provide positive (or negative) reinforcement for user's posts. If implemented, would that provide what you're looking for?

    Re: Site Feedback/Questions

    If the thumbs-up or thumbs-down could be accumulated on the thread title in the index, somehow, that would
    be great!

    No, I believe it's just something that is (discretely) provided to the post author. What it sounds like you're asking for is a thread rating system, which is displayed in the thread listing before clicking on a thread, and that's another potential option.

    Thread rating system sounds just right!

    Boss,

    Each thread has a *Thread Tools* section, currently, with
    three tools. Would it be possible to include a 4th tool, a rating tool, in said section? If so where would the accumulated results appear on the thread index page?

    Hi,

    As a group, the admins and moderators discussed implementing this option and decided, based on experience on other boards where it's used, it was not really something particularly helpful, so we won't be enabling that feature.

    At what point will I again be allowed to discuss my favorite baseball player, Adam Dunn?

    Thanks

    Maybe RZ needs to have a separate forum for topics on the rest of major league baseball - including former Reds. The description for ORG is "The premier discussion forum for Reds baseball." (bold and italics added for emphasis) OTOH, the description under The Sun Deck is " General baseball discussion for those without Old Red Guard posting access." where I would assume talk of ex-Reds players and others would be OK.

    Thoughts?
