Limiting GIFs to the first 3 pages won't help, since these GIFs will just end up quoted on later pages. That also prevents any game talk from being on the first 3 pages.

The best thing is for us to get mature about the GIFs and stop going overboard with them. It takes forever for pages to load when a poster puts 12 GIFs in one post that are irrelevant to the KNICKS. It's also tasteless to the female and little kid KNICK fans (not everybody is registered) who come here but end up seeing semi-X rated GIFs of females. There are sites to see naked females, but this one isn't it. So turning a PG thread into an instant porn site is a problem.

We just need to get smart and mature about this. Posting 1 GIF of some kid dancing in celebration of a win is one thing. Posting 20 GIFs of naked females is totally different and is not the time or place for that sort of thing.

The latest "Gif Game Thread" was lame. It might get better after a win.


Good call. I was going to say the analysis thread was mostly filled with one liners that could have gone in the GIF thread. The posters who took time to post their analysis of the game were solid though.


I think the first thread is really a "reaction" thread - be it celebration or disappointment.
I will not trade future draft picks for past draft busts.

I automatically skip to the 2nd page of any PG thread to avoid the same wall of tired animated gifs.

Two separate threads. Please. It's a pain in the azz to sift through the PG thread trying to find information on the game (in case one missed it) or to engage in conversation about the game. There's obviously nothing wrong with celebrating a big win or morning over a tough loss with gifs. A lot of them are really clever and funny too. Anyhow, I made my point.

Go Knicks!

When I skimmed through through the last analysis thread, I did not see any gifs. All the posters here follow the rules set from the administrators and moderators pretty well.

I like that, that's respect!

I voted for "leave it alone" but after reading the first page of posts here, I think I am more aligned with the "keep booty on the first 3 pages" camp. There is nothing wrong with a good gif of something from the game. For example no matter what, after any number of pages Image

is totally cool
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

We seriously need to get some ball movement back in the offense. Just watching Melo iso for the last 8 plays of the game was terrible. A better team would have gotten the win.

It's pretty simple.

Allow us to spazz out with .gifs after a big win or loss in the actual game thread, have a separate thread for analysis.

Lock the game thread after the next game thread is created.

I was going to post the same thing. Makes sense. Almost too much sense.

Luckily for me my GF knows what a message board is and isn't a dumb ass. Second of all, let's not pretend that the majority of users here, as well as the majority of sports fans are males. I know it's a unisex form of entertainment, but so is Justin Bieber and if I went on a Beiber message board and girls were posting pictures of him without a shirt on I should have enough understanding of the environment and people around to know and respect that the majority of the users want to see Bieber nipples or something.

The first page of the PG thread is always a wall of gifs, and even if I don't find them funny anymore they do add to the celebratory vibe.

No body does keys anymore, and to be honest with you, we don't really need a drawn out analysis because this team has an identity and we generally know what to expect. The Knicks aren't in some state of flux like in the past where we feel an obligation to think like GM's and coaches, and find critical areas of improvement or critiques. Some discussions might be worthwhile but generally we know: Felton takes bad shots, JR is unpredictable, Melo will ISO, Tyson only scores around the basket, Novak doesn't play defense, Amar'e and Shumpert were out and are now adjusting to the team, etc, etc. The only exception is if something exceptional happened like an injury or whatever.

And for the sake of structure a PG thread should have one liners because anything of note to discuss is better off having it's own thread. Such as analyzing Woodson's offensive structures, etc.
