tbh, what's silly is that mods dictate what is "thread-worthy". As long as its bball related and not deragotory, idk how a mod can say who's opinion is worthy of a thread and who's isn't.

Pretty sure its in place to stop people who get banned from just making hundreds of new accounts in a row to continue posting in the gb.

True to an extent but people cant seem to let these terrible threads go by without telling OP how terrible it is or posting a gif. So they clog up the 1st pages while quality threads get buried.

I am merging this with the GB questions sticky. The rule is there in part to allow new posters to understand the rules for the GB so that they don't start breaking rules and saying they didn't know what the rules were.

What is backseat moderating? I receive a warning for backseat moderating. Please advise.

If you tell people that they are violating board policies but you aren't yourself a moderator.

Wait, I thought Backseast moderating is when Posters tell Moderators how they should drive or moderate the board. You know, from the back seat.

If you want to comment on a post in a way that suggests moderator action (lock this thread, that's trolling, etc), use the report function.

That's why it's there.

Posting about it in-thread is derailing and backseat moderating... And won't actually tell a moderator what's happening, while using the report function will.

I have no idea why my Kyrie Irving thread was locked. All I did was stick to the facts.

You made a discussion about whether he's a top-5, elite point guard; it was definitively comparing him to basically every starting PG in the league, but more particularly to all of the guards people typically think of as among the best PGs in the league. Any time ranking a player relative to his peers enters the equation, it's a blatant player comparison and belongs on the PC Board.

Fair enough, I 'spose. But why not just move it instead of locking it?

Currently, 10 of the first page threads pertain to Lakers' players. May I request we go ahead and change the website to lakersgm.com?

We have answered this question many times; it gets locked so you can see it and notice that you made a mistake, instead of quietly transferring without you realizing your error.

Can you guys issue warnings or whatever for people who reply to massive images without removing the original image? Case in point is the GIF thread - full of great content then 3 or 4 replies which is just the images again and a bunch of LOL faces.
