Hi everyone, John & I have spoken and made 1 big change to the website. Some members will not like this change, however; we believe it strikes a good balance & will help drive traffic and keep the site entertaining and relevant. The new change has to do with the chatbox. Before we were really strict with rules banning users for making jokes/trolling and sometimes they were forgotten about and never unbanned. The whole system had major flaws and although the intent to keep it PG was good, it often left the chat dead and boring. So the change it is enforce less rules and have a relaxed chat where people can troll, name call, act childish, etc if they so choose. We welcome heated discussions and having fun as it is entertaining. And come the NHL season we want the chat busy and people having fun, chirping to create a buzz in the chat. The only rules in the chatbox are NO SPAM, no personal info, & no bad links (porn, etc). This can still get you banned. This is a 180 turn from what we had, but the good balance comes from the forums. Think of it this way. The Forums will continue to be moderated and have the same rules. It will be a respectful & organized place to discuss matters. That chatbox will be the opposite where people can come to have fun and relax a little. If one does not suit your taste stick to what you like. I hope this strikes a good balance for everyone and will help the site grow and continue to be busy. Regarding the forums, I am looking for 3-5 moderators. Your extra permissions will be to move threads if posted in wrong section, delete spam threads, combine duplicate or similar threads, message users if they are misbehaving, message myself about users/behavior. If you are interested let me know in this thread. TO RECAP = FORUMS - Remain the same. Same rules. Same respect. Chatbox = Relaxed, less rules.
