  • For the young crowd

    We've noticed that we've had an influx of younger posters recently and thought that if we gave you guys your own area to post in and "cut your teeth" so to speak, that it may help when you venture out to the other areas.

    Please feel free to talk about the Rams or anything else you wish (except politics and religion) and use this forum for your own growth ok?

    Have fun....tx

        When the "under 18's" come out of the 'kiddie pool', we expect them to abide by the forum rules. The "over 18's" should understand this already, and should be abiding by said rules. Therefore, I see no reason to have a seperate 'red light district' for the adults. The mods will see to it that this place stays the way it needs to be.

          This was my idea to create this forum, but if you don't want this forum I'll just ask Dez to delete it.

          Won't hurt my feelings, just one less place I have to moderate. It's up to you all. You want to apprecate it like 4ever did that is appreciated. You want to pop off an uncalled for reaction like 16 did, that is noted also.

          As I see it, it's one vote yes and one vote no so far.

              I'm cool with it, it doesn't matter if it's here or not. It is just a way of giving us our own zone to learn the rules until we can follow em good and not derail threads.

                its not my cup of tea, people make mistakes, and when they happen to be under 18, they shouldn't be criticized for it, but thats just me, I really don't like this though..

                    Re: For the young crowd

                    Look, we had to do something. Instead of banning the lot of you, we allowed you to have your own forum. No, this doesn't mean you can't post in other threads but it does mean that if you start a thread, wherever you think it should be, it will be moved here.

                    Why? Several long time posters were complaining about how the board was slipping because of the young crowd just posting away without really thinking about what was being said. ClanRam isn't the place to just post "we are great, everyone is going to the Pro Bowl" things of that nature. You can accept this and carry on or you can either create your own board or find another one.

                    Your choice. However, this is the rule and we will stick by it. Like I said, if you have an issue....PM Dez himself. Because that's where this came from.

                      No, what it means is that we're trying to encourage some of our younger members to grow and mature so that they can better participate in the mature football discussion that takes place on this board.

                      This isn't the official site's old board or the PD board. We expect our members to behave like adults, make their points in a clear, logical, and mature manner, and not post simply for the sake of increasing your post count.

                      If people are looking for a place to run wild, say whatever they want, and think better of themselves because of the number next to their post count, I can provide a number of links to boards that allow that. This is not one of them.

                      This isn't a high school hallway. This is the ClanRam. We're hoping this forum helps younger members learn what's acceptable to post and how to post at the Clan so that the experience remains enjoyable to everyone.

                        I happen to agree with Tx, Nick, Dez and whoever else came up with this Under 18 forum. I have noticed along with other people it seems, a lack of quality posts lately. Many regular people aren't posting as much (myself included) now. I have to believe that a small part of the reason is that it is the offseason, but I think the main part is the quality of posts has gone down and stopped people from posting so much or even coming back at all maybe in some cases.

                        It's frustrating to some to have to sift through low quality posts to find the good stuff. It's also frustrating that some people have pointed out numerous times it's not about how many posts you make, it's about the quality of the post, and backing up your statement with facts.

                        Good job to the creators of this forum.

                          I turn 18 tomorrow. Farewell Under 18 section lol.

                          Will my "Rams Sigs" thread still be in the "Under 18" section?

                            Decorum on the Forum
                            by NJ Ramsfan1
                            When I joined this forum a year ago, I anticipated talking with a lot of knowledgable fellow Rams fans and have not been disappointed. The conversations have been good ones and many times thought provoking. But the one peeve I have is that there are a few on board who seem to delight in arguing even the most benign observations, offer sarcastic responses or generally try to draw the ire of the poster. I think it's unnecessary and detracts from the Forum.

                            I'm certainly not talking about challenging someone's opinion- which is the way we generate discussion, offer viewpoints and talk over an issue. It's the picking apart of every word a person says and the intolerance shown by some in making their own point on an issue. Some of those who use the buzz phrases about "having patience", "being positive", "showing your loyalty", etc. also seem to feel that the best way to get their message across is to try to make the other person feel like an idiot.

                            Everyone on this forum has varying degrees of knowledge about the Rams- some more than others, depending on age, experience, etc. No one needs to be beaten over the head with an "I have more knowledge than you" post in tone, if not actual words.

                            I am one of many on the board whose opinions are occassionally rejected- which is fine if the criticisms are fair. I have occassionally used frustration in responding to someone I thought missed the boat completely- which is wrong. I include myself when I say that a better overall effort must be made to respond in kind to posts we don't necessarily agree with.

                            I think the losing has gotten to many of us.

                            I dont use it much only because the level of smack is just childlike now. I have been toying with the idea of removing it for some time, what do you think? Yes or No.

                            OK, as moderator of this forum you guys are startin' to piss me off...i'm glad you wanna talk smack about the greatest show on earth and the new name defense, but...PUT IT IN THE RIGHT FORUM

                            There is a special smack talk forum, put your RAMblings in there, those of us looking for actually intelligent posts don't need to sift through your b.s. I had to move 4 threads to the right forum

                            i'm all for the smack, but let's put it in the right place.

                            The Post-Dispatch's "Ram Talk" Forum Represents the Worst of Rams "Fans"
                            by AvengerRam_old
                            Like many of you, I venture over to the PD site on a fairly regular basis for Rams news.

                            Like some of you, I occasionally make the mistake of opening a thread or two on the "Rams Talk" forum.

                            Good Lord... those people are more full of crap than a broken porta-potty at a chili cookoff during a dysentery outbreak. The majority of them have no business calling themselves Rams fans at all.

                            I guess the best use of that forum is to show what real non-fans are like. Sure, we have our spats around here among the rose-colored glasses wearing optimists and the Chicken Little naysayers from time to time, but even the most extreme regulars here are mild salsa compared to the flaming vat of Tobasco over at the PD.

                            I'm not going to dignify any particular poster by naming him or her, but suffice to say there is an overwhelming majority of knee-jerk howler monkeys there who do little but scream about the Rams' problems while, at the same time, taking apparent joy in the vindication of their prior prognstications of doom. In the aggregate, their opinion seems to be that everyone on the team should be fired, cut or thrown into a pool of hungry sea bass outfitted with laser beams (and yes, they are ill-tempered).

                            Does any of this matter? I guess, in the grand scheme of things, the answer is "no." However, I will say this... given the PD's status as the Rams' primary home city news source, the presence of these morons does not reflect well on the team as a whole. We might not be the fan base of the Chicago Cubs, but there is a loyal, if long-suffering, core of Rams fans who prefer to at least be constructive in addressing the current state of affairs.

                            So, as far as I'm concerned, the "Rams Talk" forum should be shut down entirely. It is an unnecessary blemish that negatively impacts the image of all Rams fans.

                            Get rid of it, PD!
