As you may have noticed, we are attempting to clean up the trolling and over the top negativity across the forum. We understand that our users are passionate about the Rangers and when things go poorly with the team we all want to express our frustration, but there is a right way and a wrong way to do that. It has become unfair to our members who want to enjoy the discussions, both positive and negative, of our New York Rangers. We will no longer tolerate harping on the same topic over and over. If you've already stated something, like your displeasure for a player, then your next post on that same topic needs to bring a fresh insight.
That's fine once in the GDT in the heat of the moment. The second time, it's harping. The 50th time, it's just a nuisance. Comments like these have no place outside of the GDT.Nash is a skating vagina. He sucks. Get rid of him.
Nash needs to shoot the puck quicker. Every time he gets an opportunity, he's thinking too much.Geez, Nash, has a three on one, he has to pass it there. His play is really deteriorating.That's all fine for the GDT or any other thread related to Nash.If we get eliminated and Nash doesn't show something before we're done, I think we need to trade him.
Over the top, profanity filled rants are no longer welcome anywhere on the forum at any time. You can use profanity to emphasize a point or displeasure, but if you come on to the forum only after the Rangers are losing to post a series of expletives about a number of players or the team, only to disappear again, you're no longer welcome here. If you can't post without a string of curses, perhaps this isn't the forum for you.
If you constantly post on the same topic (such as your displeasure for a specific player/coach or situation) in multiple threads where the topic is something all together different, you will be considered trolling and will receive an infraction.
If you receive a warning or an infraction and don't understand why, feel free to ask. However, lashing out at a moderator who issues a warning or infraction will receive another infraction or possible banning. Be polite and we will explain why we came to the conclusion we did and if there was a legitimate misunderstanding, we may rescind the warning/infraction all together.
We are often critical of the team we support, wanting, needing them to be better. Well we need to be better here, too. And this needs to be a better place. We can no longer ignore those who ask us to do something about this problem, while bending over backwards to be fair to those causing these issues. There are forums on the internet centered around the New York Rangers where members can and are as nasty and childish as they like. If that's the type of experience you are looking for, then by all means, find one of those. This will no longer be that place.
Thank you and LETS GO RANGERS!
