    Posted in "About this Forum", re-posted here, as it relates entirely to the Lounge

    I have been instructed not to start sport related threads in The Lounge.

    Can you please post sports related topics in the Sports Club and not in the Lounge.

    thnx
    A pleasent an polite instruction. To which I replied

    OK, but I won't bother starting new sports threads if that's the case.

    I post in Sports Club when I want a more serious discussion and in the Lounge when I just want a sports related laugh. That way it keeps a lot of possible pish out of Sports Club and people can have a good laugh in The Lounge, the threads proved popular sometimes.

    I see it as being the same as keeping serious stuff in the Drawing Room and spam in the Lounge. I think you're wrong but what the hey, it's your forum. So your rules, sorry if I've caused any offence.
    I think you will agree that this is a perfectly amicable exchange, with no animosity between myself and the un-named board member.

    However I must note that the description of the Lounge, enforced by the board members here is

    Don't be fooled by cheap imitations, this is the original Off-Topic forum. Come on in and talk about absolutely anything (within our board rules).
    Given that we can talk about "anything" save that it does not break a rule and that I cannot see how discussing sports in a jokey manner breaks the rules, I am a loss to understand this instruction.

    I will abide by what I have been told, however in the interests of fairness I must insist that the following things are also precluded from the Lounge;

    Filesharing (in all it's forms)
    Movies
    Television
    Music
    Books
    Comics
    Hardware
    Software
    World Affairs
    Jokes
    The Internet
    Programming
    Games

    I know this seems harsh, but I'm sure you'll agree it is only fair. Otherwise it would appear that I am being singled out for special treatment and I am absolutely certain that is not the case.

    Thanks.

    I think the trick is to post a sports related thread without using any sporting terms in the title. Otherwise you'll make the mods look stupid if they don't move it.
    It's hot in Topeka.

    From the list you put up J'Pol, this is what the lounge posts would look like

    Or I could spam topics in Sportsworld and have the stuff moveds to the Lounge. That's the sensible approach. I'm sure mods will love that.

    I (hopefully we) have no problems with regard to this issue and have dealt with any discussions in private, as it should be.

    anytype of sports threads should only contain images of cheerleaders, bikini contests and posing on cars - if not then such threads should be posted in the Movies & TV section.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
