    You have been a member for a little under a year. You have 660 posts (which means you have enjoyed yourself).

    You have stipulations for a donation?

    The site has been getting along fine years prior to your proposed penance.

    One Question MindWarp OR any other mod...

    So can you have quotes of say Saban? Or other players? Or maybe some famous person that says something worth remembering?

    Meaning is this restriction ONLY on quoting members?
    Offseason again... at least this one should be exciting!

    Yikes. I know you guys are going to stick to your guns on these rules, but I agree with everyone that has posted already on this thread that the annoyance rule is really unclear, the quotes in the sig rule needs to be further specified so that only excessive or mean quotes are penalized, and the wrong forum rule is wayyyyy too strict. When new members come to the site, they're going to just post wherever they want because they are new. That's like hitting them with a penalty as soon as they arrive. If you have been around for a while, its still possible to mess up accidentally once in a while.
    Like I said, I know you guys are going to stick to your guns, but its also important to listen to the members of your site. Just giving a heads up.

    Good stuff.

    Regardless of the details, I think it sends a message. I also think the mods/admins are more than lenient enough and fair enough that the majority of posters who have adhered to the rules in the past won't get caught up in the new system.

    Again, the penalty should only be for quoting members with antagonistic intent. I know I've quoted another member in my sig at some point because it was simply an awesome quote. It would be ridiculous to punish that.

    This post is just silly. It's not cool to antagonize someone for their inexperience on the site.

    I am torn about this. The warning system is a good idea in theory, though I worry about how strict this should be. I believe that some of the more borderline violations(for example a thread about what it would take to get Cutler in the main forum), should just be moved with no points. Lets face it, we understand that the mods have to make judgement calls from time to time; regular posters do too. If I were to post a thread about trading Ricky Williams for a chance at Cutler, that could reasonably be posted in the Main, Trade or Draft forums; no matter which one you choose, if a mod is having a bad day I could be wrong and missed two right answers. I believe the only time points should be assesed for posting in the wrong forum is if it is blatently off topic, for example if I posted my infamous "cooler" thread in the main forum(I still want it back, InFins, I am not kidding)
