Enough getting mad at people or insulting their questions by saying "this has already been discussed" or "I've seen this so many times". Obviously, the person having the conversation or asking the question hasn't seen it before or they want to have a better understanding. Stop flexing on people who may not spend as much time here as you or haven't been here as long as you. If you don't have anything productive to add, just move on to the next post.

    Most of the times when there are complaints, it's not even a matter of searching. The complaints are about multiple threads on the front page, top 10, and even adjacent to each other with nearly identical headlines on the exact same topic.

    In such instances, it had nothing to do with flexing on people who don't spend as much time on here as someone else. It's literally a complaint that the poster stormed in here and hit 'new topic' without even looking at the front page.

    If it happens every now and then, it's no big deal. However, I've seen as many as 6 of the top 10 threads on the exact same topic. When that happens, it's not a positive. Conversations about other topics are getting pushed unnecessarily off the front page.

    There are no Einstein/John Nash types here (i.e. very few original ideas showing up on this board.) Check and see if someone else has the same thought you did first, and maybe join a conversation once in a while. You're not a thought leader just because you start a new thread.

    More aggressive moderation couks solve this problem by merging such topics together. It'd cause a little confusion at first, but eventually ppl would fall in line.

    I try to alternate days between learning something new one day and forgetting something old the next day.
    It's all about balance.

    Preach, Sir, preach. The older I get the better I was.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say we don't need any more threads about anthem kneeling. Some topics, (Fromm vs Fields) are kind of annoying but I get why they come back up and are at least relevant to the dawgs. I'll defer to more senior posters on what to do about "repeat threads" but as long as they aren't political or toxic its just a minor annoyance imho

    I get both sides but I’m pretty sure we can all agree that we don’t need anymore threads worried about the D-line or QBs started by a certain Chicken Little.

  • pgjacksonpgjackson Posts: 9,719 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    OMG...another one of these??? ;)

    I never understood posters who chime in on a thread just to tell everyone it's been discussed before...as if there is only one thread allowed for any topic.

    Like just about every CFB forum I've ever visited, there's usually more than a couple of surly members. Trick is to not let them get under your skin. Just ignore whoever and have some fun. After all, it's not like we're getting a job performance for this or anything.

    That’s already been discussed :p

    And the answer was a resounding "no"

    Being an old fart, I only use a desk top to access the forum unless I'm on the road. In other words very little mobile access. With that, all the topic categories are or can be separated, ie. Football, General, Recruiting, Off Topic. Is it the same on mobile devices? I know if I hit the "Categories" tab, it groups all topics together which is a true cluster Gamecock....

    I love nothing better than having people, who aren't mods, tell me what I can and can't post. It's even better when that person hasn't even been on this board for a month.

    By the way, I have already seen this on another thread.
