The moderators and I have discussed at length the continued behavior of some posters who feel it necessary to troll and bait other fans and fan bases to the detriment of the board. We ask that fans ignore such remarks to reduce the amount of trolling that occurs.
Our intent in creating this forum for MVC fans was to depart from the antagonistic and adversarial tone of Valley Talk and hopefully allow for actual dialogue between fans. We believe that most of our users would rather have a forum to discuss the Missouri Valley Conference than a place where every post was certain to draw a negative reponse and ultimately a further response from a fan of the team being ridiculed.
Therefore, we have agreed to the following policy on trolling: Any poster that a moderator believes is intentionally posting off topic or simply posting to provoke will be sent a warning via PM. If the behavior continues after the PM, the status of the user will be changed to require moderator approval before his/her posts show up on the board. While we feel it is unfortunate that this step is necessary, we do not believe it is acceptable that the majority of the forum users should be subjected to the ridicule of the few.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me or one of the forum moderators.
