Should we do in-game and post-game discussion here?
 
rather than in that NBA main subforum? One advantage is that we can make this Nets forum more active, it used to be quite lively when I first joined in 2007. I believe the situation will get better and better with a stronger nets team, but still we can do even more.

On the other hand, the posters are so out of mind there, downright pathetic. I prefer the atmosphere in Nets subforum, and I am sure many of you do. You can even get negs from a post like this one, people cant take jokes and consider you a hater out of nowhere:

Nowadays you have to be ultra-cautious in the NBA forum, and even so there are always idiots going after you.
:lol

lakers fans can be incredibly sensitive, so i can see how that might have gone wrong. and, you know... i also have one hater who likes to follow me around and keeps negging me with "STFU you fatass!" ...although if you remember my pics you'll know that i'm about as lean as it gets. :hammerhead:

i was sort of hoping to finish filling out my rep bar one day, but it probably won't happen. this place is a certain kind of boys club. if you know how to make the right kinds of one-liners, you'll have a "top reputation" in a matter of weeks. if you bore people, are weird, too 'intellectual', challenge them too much, or simply fall outside the norm you'll tend to get ignored or repped down in to redville. whatever.

that said, i know i can come across as a little condescending, nitpicky, anti-social at times. i definitely have room to grow.


aaaaanyway, i've noticed that most nets fans seem to prefer posting in game threads rather than in the season thread here. i do think the game threads are better suited for temporary conversation, and the season thread is better for making more long-term observations. i don't know how you could force people to post in any particular place, anyway.

lol a hater that dedicated, hopefully he gets a life someday. Ain't you actually feeling pity for him?

I am sure many ISHers want to have dozens of green bars too someday. I know Knicks fans love to rep each other up in their tiny little circle/forum. Dunno if any other fans do this though, I personally dont think its the appropriate way to go anyway.

Yup I agree with you on this. Game Thread is what you do to post your thought mid-way into the game, and cheer for your team when you are going on a run. When the show is over, it is better to write in post-game threads on this forum. There are ways to motivate people to post in particular places though, I've done that when I was admining forums. It depends on forums though. Dont think it will work out for ISH, even Jeff is unable to urge posters to do this.

hmm... motivating ISH posters sounds a lot like trying to herd cats. good luck with that. =)

Sounds good to me. Even in the last couple of years where our team has been sh*t, we still racked up some high post threads. The 07-08 post game thread has 1,389 posts which is the highest in this sub-forum. I honestly expected more fans to roll in (maybe get a few old school posters back) because we finally have a playoffs team now but so far it has not been the case. Hopefully when we start winning we'll attract some new posters.

But yeah go ahead and make a 12-13 post game thread and I'll sticky it. Its our historical first year in Brooklyn anyway so we should make one.

Thats great, the Nets forum does need more activity from us.
