Figured it's official since Ron posted this on Auburn's board.... I love the board already.
Don't feed the trolls
This is going to be awesome. I don't even have to worry about the board it sounds like too.... The flaming and arguments on that board is going to be sweet. I can't wait for it to really really pick up.
BTW this isn't a thread to bash that staff or board. Just want to notify people about it. If you don't like the board or what they offer don't visit or let them know through the PM system. This board's rules have always been we don't allow other staff to be bashed on here.
It's impossible to bash staff. They are not allowed to post on troll board.
Its already a fun board. A few are already crying about it, but you have whiners everywhere.
Is it going to be completely off the wall and anything goes or will it be closely moderated?
Ask them. I would take a guess that it will be closely moderated though.
Who are the mods over there? I should be blacklisted by now.
247Rumors is the username you can PM.
Meh, he'll probably just tell me who are rumored to be mods. Can't troll me.

Keep in mind if you are blacklisted there, there's a good chance you are blacklisted from this board as well because it's the same main site.

Some people get real uppity about the rumor mill. I really don't understand why.
Pretty pointless, iyam. It should just be called Trollapaloosa.
Yes, all the trolls will congregate in one place, but it will lose its luster soon enough. Rivals didn't even stoop so low as to have a designated troll board.
Why don't people understand this? Unless I'm missing something, you do realize this is an established account with almost 25k followers on twitter that posts rumors regarding coaching searches. Its a very interesting follow on twitter, gives a peak into things that might be going on behind the scenes and is fun to read/talk about.
Why wouldn't you want to have a board for that?

I understand 247's apparent intent to jump into the skewed 'journalism' waters of CNN and fox (and thereby enjoy the ratings therein), however some people enjoy some level of integrity in their news sources. The rumors board will be used mainly to post flames on your rivals and other erroneous information so as to mislead others.
247 has traditionally been a source of credible and trustworthy info (w/ some noted errors, but predominately trustworthy). The rumors board just seems like an open gate to allow a great amount of erroneous information and thereby dilute the site as a whole.
If you can't see the enormous propensity for erroneous information, then I am sure you have not comprehended my message above.
The rumors board will be the equivalent of a trainwreck. A lot of people wont like what is happening over there, but they still wont be able to look away
No thats not what the board is for. Its for the people that run the FootballRumorMill to post their rumors and what they are hearing and for posters who wants to discuss a topics merits to do so.
Pretty simple to solve... Don't goto the Rumors board if you don't want to read any of it.
It should be renamed the SEC Rumors board.
Why do you even comment about it if you don't like it. It's pretty out of the way. You don't have to visit it if you don't like it.
Because this is Merica, son
