The celebratory SFW are definitely cool for the first 2-3 pages,
Borat, the zebra, and all the dancin/good eating/funny gifs, definitely enhance the winning giddiness.

The Bootiliciousness should have its own thread...save a few good luck charms on the GT.

Quoting 5 pics of azz just for a smiley face, thumbs up emoticon, or what's her name? is a bit much
and I can see a significant, or work enviro getting the wrong idea...

You can get porn anywhere...these Knick victories are hard to come by.

"this thread will help the issue on its own"

this couldnt be further from the truth.

keep it as is, not every game thread is a "good ass game", it usually comes and goes.

I think we can all live without the semi porn pics. But nothing changes until we lose.

Keep it in the first 4 pages. The gifs are sometime funny but it gets a bit plaid out after a while. Gifs in general on this board are played out. But some of them do make me laugh. But I come on this site to talk knicks basketball, and I enter the post game thread to read and discuss the game.

I hardly ever post in the pg threads, this is one of the reasons why. But 4 or 5 pages is more then enough time to post your celebrating pics. Maybe even make it a regular thing after a knicks win, but eventually I wanna read and talk basketball.

I voted for the 4th one, but I think its best the gifs be used for big games, or winning close games. They really do get played out after awhile.

I'm leaning towards absolutely no gif's in the PG thread. Let's challenge ourselves to stick to discussion about the game. The board's cumulative basketball IQ may actually increase if we went this route.

I honestly don't see the big deal with people posting gifs. I think the people that are complaining about it because "they want to talk Knicks" should post like normal. No one is stopping them from posting. It doesn't get "buried".

HER: "Yeah... *rolls eyes*
ME: "No, I'm serious. I'm all fired up from the big win"
HER: "So you look at porn?"
ME: "It's NOT PORN!"
HER: "goodnight"



so i can't post funny/topical gifs because some ballboy/sophomore's girlfriend has found a new excuse to not have sex with him?!?

That's messed up, man.

I hope you're reading this, drekwins... because i should slap you....

if you limit gifs to within the first 4 pages then you must also limit "bball analysis" until after the first 4 pages.

this board is so fun and so unique because it doesn't follow the rules you'd like to follow. this forum wouldn't be where knicks fans go if we start down this path..

that's because you're not funny/topical/savvy enough to play them at the right times

LOL

Why can't we have both a Post Game Discussion thread as well as a Post Game GIF's thread?

Many who visit this forum read it while at work, or at home with their family/loved ones. I don't think it's fair to make a Post Game Discussion thread "NSFW". GIF's and memes weren't as common on the internet during the TKF Keys days. We also didn't have much to celebrate during 23-33 win seasons.

This forum is still getting accustomed to the idea of winning games at a .650 to .700 pace. The Knicks haven't won games at this pace since 1997, think about that! That's over 15 years where all we've known is mediocre regular seasons. I feel this thread is a sign that collectively, we're trying to figure out the best way to handle being a fan of a winning team.

i have said it before to get rid of the gifs altogether. Nice to see some others coming around to that line of thought.

I am just talking the post game thread, the other threads with well timed gifs are entertaining. I was a big contributor in the "Caught cheating-quick kick-ass games" thread.

The problem with the post game thread is that its all the same crap. Repetitive and boring. The girl photos are lame also and I find it pathetic when you see people asking all the time "who is that chick in your avatar/post?" Not that I havent looked at porn before, but if i wanted to look at that i would go to a different site. Cant have a serious basketball discussion when you know that half the dudes on here have erections because thugger posted a gif of some scantily clad girl.

No one has said anything against having both a post game gif thread and a post game discussion thread. Seriously, I don't see why this forum can't handle two separate post game threads to make everyone happy. I could see the post game loss gif thread being very hilarious.

Screw it, I'll just take matters into my own hands. Watch me post both PG GIF's and PG Discussion threads tomorrow right after the game is decided.

I'm with you, we should just try it out today after the Nets game, if it goes well, then we can keep them separate.
