    Game Threads are once again allowed in The Sun Deck

    All,

    After giving the idea some consideration, GIK and I have decided to reinstate game threads in this forum. The game threads forum will be a sub-forum of the Sun Deck and, like its parent forum, only Sun Deck members will be able to post in it. I want to caution that we are doing this on a trial basis - if a large enough percentage of game thread posters abuse the privilege, we will remove it. I'm not talking about one or two posters breaking the rules; we can deal with that number individually, but if the game threads begin to cause more problems than they're worth, they will once again be gone. As a result, I can't stress this point enough - we are reinstating them on a trial basis and it's up to you whether or not they are here to stay.

    This forum will follow the same rules as everywhere else on the site (available at the bottom of every page). To avoid endless lineup bashing every game, we will have the same rule as we do the in the game thread forum for ORG members: please do not start a game thread more than 15 minutes prior to the start of the game. Finally, to ensure that violations of the rules reach all appropriate parties, we strongly encourage you to use the Report a Post feature (using the red and white icon with an exclamation point) to send posts to the admins and moderators for their review. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this thread.

    Sounds great, Boss.

    As a relatively new poster, what types of posts break the rules on a game thread? Anything different than any other post?

    Not really any different than anywhere else on the side - just my opinion, but the biggest thing with game threads that has caused problems is the emotion tied to the game people are following. That, combined with the sheer volume of posts being made at one time, often leads to shorter fuses than normal and posters taking their frustration out on other posters.

    We'll keep it mellow and constructive for sure.

    This is one of the most fun things to do, discuss the game in a thread IMO.
    Should be a great time!

    I agree this is great, but it sounds like you need to get out more.

    Re: GAME THREADS!

    The game thread will be a great thing, for sure.

    Who volunteers to do play by play? I probably won't be able to see the game. I might listen, if I can, but I'm looking forward to some witty, Redszone-style commentary.

    Gonna be great

    Re: Game Threads are once again allowed in The Sun Deck

    Since I've never experienced a game thread, I have no idea how someone could break rules regarding a game thread. How do you talk about a game and ruin a thread? I don't get it but I hope I never find out because I like the idea.
    Who's on first?

    Personally attacking a fellow member will do it.

    As long as everyone follows the rules at the bottom of every page here at RedsZone, there shouldn't be any problems.

    Re: GAME THREADS!

    Silly question and sorry if it has been asked before or if it blasphemous but,

    If we are all on the internet already, why do we need a game thread? There are many other avenues we can use to follow a game

    Again, no disrespect. Just a noob with a noob question

    now fellows i've been around here longer than most and have seen the game threads go into the toilet the first time let's not happen again. Post your opinions but also realize just because someone's opinion differs than yours it might not be wrong.
