    Holy crap, I just went to their website and need about $10,000 to get all of the stuff I want. I didn't realize they made clothes too. Wow! Nice stuff for sure.

    PC. Happening both with Chrome and IExplorer. I’m using my phone (safari) right now and that seems to work. I suppose it could be a blocking issue, though I’ve never had trouble with that before.

    I blocked all cookies for this website except the Finheaven one and that immediately fixed the problem.

    Going to the doctor when blood isn't oozing out of somewhere is for hypochondriacs and wusses.




    So, I'm probably gonna wait another six months. ;)

    Long standing policy. Don't think any moderation decisions can be discussed in public.

    Safe to assume that anyone who gets banned didn't follow the TOS.

    It is not forbidden to ask however what goes on between a member and the staff is private and will not be shared with the site.
    You should know it takes a lot to get banned so assume the member in question was unable to follow the rules (TOS) after given many warning to do so.

    That's the best answer we can give without violating that members privacy.

    It's not forbidden to ask but the answer is going to be generic in most cases. The policy is to keep everything between the members and the staff. How would you feel if you talked to one of us in privacy and then we discussed it openly to all members?

    There are certain posters who creat patterns over the years and some are good and some are bad. Once you get to far into the bad and refuse to follow the Terms Of Service (rules) it doesn't matter if you've been here 1 year or 10 years or if you're a casual poster or expert poster you will get yourself banned.

    The key thing to remember here is "you" will get yourself banned. It isn't our goal to run anyone off, ever. We aren't out to get anyone but over time some posters become their own worst enemy.

    honestly, there are posters who i'm not sad to see go... but we have a TOS in place to ensure fairness. I've gone against staff wishes several times when I felt fairness wasn't in the forefront of our decisions, but more often than not, banning someone was the right thing to do. Second chances are considered and given, however, rarely does the poster actually take advantage of a second chance, and they often get themselves banned again.

    If you are banned but then show proof (thru receipt or gaping hole in the center of your forehead) that you were lobotomized after said ban, can you get your license unrevoked to post?

    I'm going to go with yes. Unfortunately I do think some posters already have that issue.

    Here is an idea for your consideration.

    Background

    We have the "Breaking News!!!" thread, which seems like a great idea. But, it seems to be one where only the Mods post and they back up the "news" with links. That's great and all, but seems like a bit of work for the Mods to research the news and verify the links, which may be preventing them from posting an update. As of right now, the most recent post was during the 2017 NFL Combine, slightly over a year ago.

    Suggestion
    How about when news breaks, rather than create a post with the verifying link posted, we instead link to the forum thread (usually created by individual site members) that discusses that news? This way the Mods do not need to check every detail and provide verified news links each time. While they're merging threads (as always is needed), they can also simply post a link to that thread in the Breaking News!!! thread. This absolves the Mod from having to fact-check everything, and helps the Breaking News!!! thread stay more current. Then, members can glance at the news, and when they're interested, simply click on that link to be directed to the appropriate thread where they can read/learn about it and join in the discussion. It might be less work if the Mods do not need to verify everything, while conveniently guiding the members to the discussion thread for instant-gratification. And, it would allow the Breaking News!!! thread to stay current, helping those members who do not visit the site as frequently.

    Just a thought. Thanks for your consideration. I really appreciate all of the wonderful things you guys do for the site and Dolphins community!

    We can do that. That might actually work better. Just a running list of breaking news with thread links, basically an index.

    Thanks! It seems like a simpler and quicker thing for the Mods, while ultimately being very useful to the members. If it qualifies as breaking news, the people in the actual thread are going to pull out the verification for the "news" pretty quickly.

    I took care of it. In the future just make a report like you did since only staff can do a merger of threads. That gets our attention quickly.
