Why is it that everytime someone writes a topic about Floyd u always quick to say something about it. You even disabled one of my pages just because I wrote a topic on Floyd and Pacquiao.....these are things that everyone wants to talk about and you of all people should know this, especially since thats all the media and boxing fans are interested in. Its like you want to be the only one to talk about Floyd or somethin damn I know you guys are coo but my nigga..... your not that niggas body guard or anything, just relax dude. Let the people talk about what they want. Who has time to check all the forum topics to see if something was already a topic before. Even if it was don't you feel like more than one person should beable to give their own take on it??? just sayin
Fighthype was my favorite site but now your making it too corporate, with all these rules at the end of the day just let people talk boxing in anyway they choose no restrictions
You can talk about Floyd all you want. We are aware that he and Manny are indeed the most popular fighters in boxing. No problem with that. The problem is that people do not read the forum rules that prohibit the creating of duplicate threads that are just there to talk nonsense. There are MANY, MANY threads open about Floyd to talk about and Manny to talk about. All we ask is to look through the board and to please reply within an existing thread about the topic that you want to talk about instead of creating a new thread that is already open.
These guidelines were created based on community input over a period of 10 years. For instance, back when Tyson was fighting we would have up to 30-40 duplicate topics just about Tyson. Maybe 5 of them were good, the others were just there to take up space. We were asked to work on consolidating topics to make the forums more manageable and easier to navigate. To help with this, we even created a Tyson Forum. When he retired from boxing, we removed it.
We do not want to be power-hungry or doctoral in any way, but we really want to try to keep some organization to the thread topics. When there are 5, 10, 15, threads about a fighter that say the same thing, users can't follow along with what is what.
Maybe we need to create a special forum just for Manny and Floyd. I really don't think our requests to ask users to please reply within existing threads when possible is being unreasonable. It's worked for us for 10 years, and it's helped everyone. Like I said, reply in any thread about Manny or Floyd that you want. But pointless topics that are just created on the board that have been covered to death 100 times over WILL be closed.
Create new threads only when it talks about new things. I hope this helps and does not seem harsh. We really do our best to be fair to everyone.
