InsideHoops Forum Intro, Guidelines, Search, Feedback
 
Welcome to InsideHoops, the most fun basketball community on the planet!

OVERVIEW

Here at InsideHoops, we value friendly, passionate, intelligent basketball discussion. We have a big mix of fans here -- some young, some old, mostly long-time fans but some still new and learning the game. Be friendly to other people! When in doubt, chill out, relax, and remember why we're all here: For good basketball discussion.

NOTE TO NEW MEMBERS

Welcome aboard. When you first get an account, your account is limited to replying to topics that other people started. As you post for a while, your account will gain the ability to create a topic of your own, and more things, like messaging and other customizable options. It happens fairly quickly. And then you get to enjoy everything for as long as you're here. For years! Decades! Just post regularly and all the features will open up to you soon.

NOTE TO EVERYBODY

1) Be very selective about new topics that you create. Only create a topic that's intelligent and worthy of being its own topic. Before starting a new topic on a recent event, skim-read the pre-existing topics on page 1, and if it's not breaking news, check page 2 and a few other older pages before starting the topic.

2) Be friendly to other people! Healthy basketball debate and passionate discussion is great, but remember, we're all here for fun and to exchange basketball ideas, options, info and observations.

3) If someone posts something that is "damaging" to our board in a fairly big way, please REPORT THE POST by clicking the little red/white triangle near their username. Only do this when necessary. And if someone is posting LOTS of bad stuff, report them just once or twice saying "check their other posts."

4) If you have a personal problem with someone that isn't going away, feel free to simply add them to your Ignore list.

5) When quoting articles from newspapers, other sites, etc. you don't have to always post a link but you do have to credit the source. Also, never repost full articles from anywhere. Just quote a little bit, and credit where it came from.

6) If you aren't up on the latest news or results, hit the http://www.insidehoops.com front page. Look on the right side and skim our news blog entries for the latest news. Skim our rumors page for various rumor items. You can do this in maybe 2-3 minutes flat, and be up on lots of stuff.

7) Best way to learn about basketball is... watch basketball! Shocking, I know!

8) Reach out to your friends and bring them to the InsideHoops community. They'll thank you for it.

9) Post in lots of our forums! Hit the college forum, sneakers, also be sure to post news in the individual forum of your favorite team. Want to mod a team forum? Let us know.

10) HAVE FUN

Hi admin, sorry if I am not suppose to post here but I have no other way of contacting you! Why is my account so restricted? I cannot find the answers in the FAQ, I can't even view the Member's list or PM other people!

Where is the search function? When I try to search, I get a notice saying that search is not enabled for my account.

I notice there is some sort of hierarchy to the handle below your name and photo, you start with "i can barely lace my sneakers" on up based on number of posts (and perhaps more?)... but i also notice that some users seem to have chosen their own (I assume "free mike miller" is not a step in the rank ladder)... how does one change their sur-title? thanks.

If that is what you want us to do, then why are you posting this thread? Banning him forces him to start all over, which is a good punishment. When he comes back, ban him again.

The idea that it is better not to ban him so that other posters will know who he is and recognize that his posts suck is not working. When he was PB, it took a long time for him to get banned, but the forum is better with him gone, and forced to create a new identity. When someone new comes into the forum and sees a guy like CP with a ton of posts, they think people are homer idiots on this forum. If they see someone with 20 posts doing that, they just think it is a noobie that will either get banned or run out of steam.

If you ban him a few times a week (once it gets reported he is back), and remove his threads, he will go away. Doing what you are doing or banning him once every few months will never work.

feedback: there should be a better management of threads that are being created. Just look at how many stupid threads by laker fans there are now simply findng ways to bash shaq and suns. Do they really need that many threads to make their point? Plus there isn't any new discussion going on in those threads that hasn't been repeated already. It gets boring.......at least thats how i see it. You dont have to agree with me...but things like this bring credibility down for insidehoops forum.

If you dont agree with the threads, dont post in them. I agree there is a bunch of crappy threads being created but to go in them and bash the posters doesnt make you any better.
