Why not have the rumour mill closed to updates from s. general member. It could state that anyone who has a rumour to send it via PM to an address managed by the mods (and one or two other die hards if it is too much work) they then post the rumour to the thread, this forces any discussion on those to find its way to other threads and would mean we would have a thread with only rumours in it

Feel free to PM myself or Taj. Easy enough to state that its come to us confidentially/anonymously.

Personally I'll be happy to do it but your stuff will have to stack up long-term and I'd wanna know you have strong sources. A lot of people like to believe anything anyone who claims to have an inside source tells them. Not really on here TBH. More FB than anything but Im always weary of it. Someone told me last week that Kahu was 100% signed. Turns out it was Beale...

My suggestion was that be the ONLY way to update the thread. Not just for me but all members. The number of genuine rumours is very few and no matter how many times it is posted the thread gets filled with opinion and discussion. It might sound like it would be a lot of work, but I think it would be surprised how few messages would come through. Would be great to have that thread as the mods intend it to be, a place that only has rumours

Oh I see what you mean. Straight rumour, media articles, official releases without the ensuing chitter chatter that goes on after. Is that right???

Yeah that's the one. It gives a place with out the other bs. Also, it is frustrating where interesting discussion is happening in that thread but you can't join in as it is off topic. THat would force those discussions to happen in the correct place

The recruitment thread is meant to be a rumour or news only thread but it is very hard to police as you want people to have a place to discuss the news but also dont want it going to far as a lot of people hate having to wade through pages and pages of utter shit to get to the good stuff. Hate all the mod work that goes into striking that balance but hate coming home after a hard days work reading the rubbish so do it for others that feel the same.

Maybe two threads?

1. Warriors Recruitment Rumours and News
2. Warriors Recruitment Discussion Thread

Im taking it you hate reading all the rubbish too lol...

Yip and the only way that number 1 gets updated is a PM to the mods or some other designated member.

Thanks rugged we are having internal discussion on how to handle this best. Should have a decent system in place for next season where there is one locked thread with just proper rumours(controllable by mods only), and one open thread where the rumours are discussed.

Maybe rather than delete a post that is as you call it off topic, transfer it in a thread that`s appropriate for it

Vast majority of posts are moved to either the Recruitment Strategy thread or Who Should The Warriors Sign thread. The retarded ones get deleted and sometimes when I'm sick to death of moving shit I'll just delete the lot. 95% are moved though...

You've got it wrong, the club never asked for an apology and players answered the questions openly.

The school however felt that the context of the questions didn't fit within their PC bullshit ethos so made the pupils write letters of apology to the Warriors club.

Sounds like schools are in the business of producing limp wristed wet heads these days.
If thats the case then good for the club ... cant say the same about the school then.. Hey kids todays lesson is how to stop freedom of speech...
