  • Ban the Smack?

    I have had people asking that the site becomes Smack free

    I will post this as a poll.

    Just vote, thanks
    Yes .... Get rid of it now
    No .... Keep the Smack Forum open

    Keeping the Rams Nation Talking

    I say no. As long as the smack forum doesn't leak into the Ram Talk forum, I don't see the problem. If we eliminate the smack forum, I fear it will be increasingly difficult to moderate the Ram Talk forum as successfully as we have in the past.

      I have never visited the smack forum. It does not interest me at all. Therefore I did not vote as it would not be fair. However, Zig makes a very good point! For those who wish to engage in smack, having a place to vent will likely keep it out of the regular Ram football forum. I exercise my freedom of choice by simply not going there. For folks who have different inclinations, why not have a place where they can let loose?

        I like the Smack forum. It can be childish plenty of times, but there can be some decent debate going on in there.

        A suggestion Dez would be to put a big warning on the section and show the new posts for the smack forum seperate from the regular posts so that unsuspecting users don't wander into the smack forum by accident.

          No mate, I'm like MauiRam I don't use the Smack forum, if people want to go and talk smack let them, it keeps it clean in the Ram talk forum!!

            now of course ive had a war of words with a few people who were talking smack against our team for most part its been quite enjoyable...smack will be there as long as there is organized competition. i say leave it...and not to worry when someone comes here talking smack about our team or certain members i respect(well ok most memebers) ill be here with my golden pen of retribution to smite them down.

              I don't go there much however I think every forum should have a dungeon for trolls. I say keep it. Besides we don't want other team fans to believe we think we are better then them even though we are. :<>

                I say keep it. Although, I don't personally throw myself into the smack forum ring cuz I'd be dead in a heartbeat but it's fun to watch others rip each other apart. We have some pretty good "rippers" here!! It can be quite entertaining at times!!! It's all in good fun (I think)!!

                  I agree we should keep it. The trolls are going to come and spew their drival in one forum or another. We might as well put them where they belong.

                  This makes sense to me. Although, I wonder if the trolls may not just post in the ram talk forum as they crave the limelight.

                    'Smack' has apparently become quite popular and sought after by experts. To me, it is a waste of time but I can see where many in cyberspace enjoy it as a game or a hobby.

                    I would vote to keep it for the sake of adding a paradoxical "value" to ClanRam. :phone:

                          I hope it's okay to ask this question ?? I'm new to this site and was noticing under the
                          user name on messages posted there are words like, mod,regular,warrior,veteran,rookie and a badge or shield that says clanram 2005 on it.
                          What do these titles stand for ??

                          thanks in advance

                            Mod means Moderator.

                            Rookie, Regular, Veteran and Pro Bowl are based upon post totals.

                            The shield denotes a winner of this year's "Clannie" awards, which are given annually to various posters (MVP, funniest, most knowledgeable, etc) by vote of the members.

                                Do we keep it or remove it?

                                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.

                                YES - Keep it
                                NO - Get rid of it
                                I Dont Care

                                What happened to the Smack Talk forum?
                                by SteelDynasty
                                I didn't really know where else to put this topic... either here, or in an area that hardly ever gets views and responses, so here it is.

                                But yeah, what happened to it? I enjoyed reading the smack talk

                                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.
