In Topic: All-Purpose Off-Season NHL UFA RUMOR & TRADE Thread

Regardless if we sign Parise and hire a fitted coach...can the present roster make a deep run against teams like Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, and Boston? :unsure:

In Topic: MANDATORY POST COUNT

04 July 2011 - 08:46 PM

I think it's long overdue for this board. I really, really think that there should be a mandatory post-count before people have the ability to start a thread in every section of the board besides "introduce yourself".

I think it helps out on a few levels:

1) it would stop bots from being able to join and spam by creating new threads.
2) it would stop members from joining for the *sole purpose* of selling to our community. We're not an ebay page.
3) it would help slow down and stop par-itis, like we've seen so recently emerge again:

Just a quick browse through hell shows me stuff like this (i'll keep their identites hidden so I don't call them out individually:

Member A has 6 posts. 4 of them are threads. Of the 4 threads, only one brough about any discussion whatsoever.

Member B has 33 posts. 3 of them are threads. None of the threads are on topic, and none of them have more than 2 replies.Hell gets cluttered by meaningless (and oftentimes duplicate) threads. If we make it so your post count must be, say, 100 posts before you're allowed to start a thread, it gives a new member time to learn the ropes and get accustomed to the way things work around here, before they go off and start 5 threads about Free Agency 3 years from now and the future of our backup goalie position.

My suggestion:

Introduce Yourself: 0 post count mandatory
The Marketplace: 200 post count mandatory
All other sections of the board: 100 post count mandatory.

Thoughts?


Thoughts?

For the most part I've had stopped posting here mainly due to the fact that wannabe "mods" like you always seem to be complaining about every little thing. I just

feel your attitude drives newer posters away(regardless on how they act). Clearly this isn't the place to rant but I just needed to say it.


Spend a little less time on the internet and shut the **** up! Thanks :boogie:

In Topic: Devils 11/12 line combos

I find it ironic that you ask if that is caliber of a Stanley Cup winner when you leave out the most important part, the defense.

The offense alone, compared to past winners who've all had one or more elite centers mostly in their four lines.

Parise-Zajac-Tedenby/Zubrus
Kovalchuk-Elias-Zubrus/Tedenby
Palmieri-Jofeson-Rolston
Pelley-Steckel-Henrique/Zharkov/Clarkson

Honest question here, is that a Stanley Cup winning lineup? Is it a lineup that can make a deep run?

In Topic: All-Purpose Off-Season NHL UFA RUMOR & TRADE Thread

So now this is a UFA thread too? I don't wanna shift through 15 unmarked pages of a thread to discuss a signing just because I wasn't online the second it happened. What the hell was wrong with doing it the old way?

+1!!!

There should be this thread for trades and trade speculation and another for UFA spec and other minor signings with the more notable ones having their own thread.
