It just doesn't need to be discussed, take it to AggieAlert. I'm sure you can get in depth discussion there. I agree with Ben that threads about big transfers and commits should be welcomed and discussed. The former is where I take issue.

Well, then it will be a short thread. Nobody is expecting you to partake in the discussion. Keep in mind, NMSU has a rich tradition in basketball and some of our poster are rabid fans. Some new commits have backstories which go beyond a simple "star" rating. There is nothing that says you have to read or respond to a thread that doesn't interest you. Not all threads are every bodies cup of tea but we don't need to restrict interaction. Regulate conduct not thread topics.
I agree with Pistol here. I see no problem with having individual threads for each new commit, even if that commit is an "under-recruited 2 star recruit" and even if there are numerous NMSU threads (one for each recruit) appearing on the board. I personally envy NMSU's fan base and their desire to talk all things NMSU. We should all be so fortunate. In short, regulating conduct and not thread topics will enhance the discussion board (in this newbie's humble opinion).

+1 ...heavy handed moderators and or excessive rules only works to stiffel conversation.

I'll let some Aggie fans into a previously unknown fact. Up until the recent acquisition on scout.com I as a moderator had no ability to ban or timeout a poster. As such in my four + years as a moderator no one was ever banned. I could delete a post, done in very very few occasions, but we had no ability to ban. My point is to just let the blog flow and things will take care of themselves.

The history posts shouldn't be posted on here, I was just doing it to get on the nerves of other posters but to not allow us to post stuff of signing a big time recruit, or transfer is just stupid.

It's how it's always been, way before your sorry team joined the WAC.

If it's present news, it should be allowed if its about a current WAC program. All these cry babies just need to stop.

RE: RIP WAC Sports Forum
Might I suggest one thread for expansion discussion. That way there will be a central location for general expansion stuff. Like it or not, all expansion talk or move ups from FCS/Division II will affect the WAC.

RE: RIP WAC Sports Forum
A lot of good feedback here so thank you. It really is appreciated. Feel free to keep them coming. We have some guidelines to follow as moderators, which is why a few actions had to be previously taken. CP and I are in discussion of how to move forward because our intent wasn't to limit discussion.
