    General is usually full of alot of threads that I swear after two minutes of reading I do not have enough bread crumbs to find my way home.

    That is why it is called GENERAL...cause I don't think a Seargent could screw it up that badly.

    Although the only other option is for every clan to just have it...kinda screws the non subs though

    My personal preference would be: necessary forums such as Announcements (postings by admins only)
    Help
    Only Chess
    Site Ideas (rigid format, one thread per idea, no off-topic allowed so that site designers can assess the demand)

    and three other groups only:
    Humorous and lighthearted stuff
    Serious and jokes-aside discussion stuff
    Entertaining brawls and arguments about site personalities

    The bigger the forum, the more activity it gets, OK it's more work for the moderators but it might help to keep the help-seeking newbies from walking into a major drama ...

    That's my 2c worth, I'm aware that nobody on this site would agree but that's OK - I'm used to being in a minority ... 🙄

    While we're at it, should we resubtitle "Clans" forum now that goading is viewed as harassment?

    "Taunt, goad or ridicule rival clans, or just discuss this team based feature."

    We should remove the "Taunt, goad or ridicule rival clans" in line with current moderation policy of not allowing ANY goading, ANY ridicule and absolutely NO taunting

    Have you 2c on that thought?

    OK, my 2c worth again:

    "Taunt, goad or ridicule rival CLANS" is fine, personal attacks on people purely because they happen to be in particular clans is not. That's just a backdoor way of harassing people.

    Am I the only one here who can see the difference?

    that's all right, the rest of us make allowances for the US education system, we can cope with a bit of translation 🙂

    Not what I was talking about.

    Taunting a clan leader because his members are throwing clan games seems like a legitimate goad to me. Maybe you should ask the admin to clarify if they want to remove goading from the clan forum if you consider inter clan goading based on referring to clan games played to be personal harassment and constitute "personal attacks".

    If you feel that your personality doesn't sit with the concept of interclan goading that goes on in the clan forum, then you could steer clear. Phlab has often said that he goes nowhere near debates for similar reasons.

    No it's not...not when someone looks at something and thinks they have all of the facts when they don't

    And that was not goading...that was pure harrasment

    I see you are still allowed to tell falsehoods while my truthful posts regarding this matter get modded.

    It's impossible to get the facts when any attempt to do so is censored. And I would have, and have in the past, commented on ANY player who had odd draws and/or inappropriate resignations that I became aware of. It's not all about you.
