    Community Standards, have they gone the way of the dinosaurs?

    This link worked as recently as last year, but it no longer does ...

    http://www.nyyfans.com/communityStandards.php

    Could have used them (or a Mod, at least) in the Game Thread today.

    The request to have that link restored has been submitted.

    Good because they needed to be there the other day.

    And not just in the game threads either.
    I thought it was just me but I've really noticed a change for the worse in the general tone of the forum. A lot of the newer members--and we seem to be drawing a lot more newbies lately--are just nasty.

    I also wish we could bring back the rule that new members can't start new threads right away. That has also become problematic IMO.

    Don't mean to suggest you weren't doing your job! But I don't think you were there when it started to really go downhill, from post 373 on. (Saturday, the Fox game.)

    Re: Community Standards, have they gone the way of the dinosaurs?

    Can anything be done about the same group of negative posters in the ITLs? They have very few positive things to say and like I just said, a big reason many of the regulars don't go in ITL anymore is because of a host of newbies and not-so-newbies that continually post negative remarks about the team. It's really sad that people don't go there anymore and it's mainly because of that. It's not even difficult to figure out who they are. Just wondering if it is something that's trying to be worked on. I know you guys have a lot on your plate and there does not seem to be enough mods (natch) but I was just wondering if something may be done about it. GTs also but I'm really noticing it in the ITL.

    It used to work because we used to have Community Standards.

    I honestly don't understand why the Community Standards were apparently dropped.
    SNY doesn't want us to play nice?
    Makes no sense at all.

    We are definitely aware of the constant negativity of some in the baseball forums, and more suspensions and bannings are a virtual certainty.
    We are also trying hard to get more mods on board. That's something that has to be done at the administrator level, which is sort of a grey area at the moment.

    This I agree with. I had to wait 6 months and it was fine with me so why change it?

    They weren't dropped on purpose. When we changed vbulletin versions last fall the link didn't come along with the rest of the information...don't really know why. The CS will be soon re-established, probably not as a link but as a sticky thread. We're working on it.

    That makes sense. Thanks for explaining what happened Bub.

    I'm looking forward to the re-institution of the CS.

    Does that mean that Beantowner trolls can be nuked to High Heaven, then kicked up their arse?

    He said they were going to be re-posted, he didn't say they were going to be enforced.

    "Beantown trollers" aren't necessarily the worst offenders, anyway.
