Hey Mods - Can we separate threads

I was wondering if it would be possible to separate the Trade rumours from the Proposals.

I dont care to sort through the proposals, which basically boil down to their wet dream of trades (aka Trade Neil for Kane)

What if I told you trade rumours are just proposals and speculation by media personalities

Blue pill - Media that actually talks with GMs and agents.
Red pill - HFers that don't and think they can trade one teams garbage for another teams best players.

If they were to be split then speculation (rumours) should at least have a link to some external source unless a HF member here has stumbled on some credible information but can't reveal the source (very few should qualify to use this option). While a few proposals are intriguing, most of the time the posts are just wild with no substance or reason and many even lack common sense.

Rumours dont pop up much. Pointless thread is pointless.

I like this proposal. Have a media-based rumor thread. Who cares if it goes quiet for a month. It will get brought back up when something goes down (just like the recalled/assigned threads, player discussion threads, Landsdowne thread, etc.)

It's the difference between a stack of random papers on a desk, and those same papers neatly organized in a filing cabinet. The latter is more work, but well worth it. In theory it is no less reading for the mods.

..that's all I got.

We have a spot where legit media rumors take place. It is on the main boards.

I do not see the point of creating a separate thread. One of two things will happen;

A) it falls deep through the pages and a new one is made for the same rumor because people are too lazy to search for the old one.

or

B) A rumor will pop up saying BM is in talks with GM Z over player X. People will start discussing what they would trade for player X making it no different than what we have now.

People make it sound like there are new rumors every day.
We are half way through the year now and we have had 2 rumors.
Murray wants a PMD and Del Zotto might be that player. Murray wants a vet top 6 forward and we do not know who he is targeting.
Why do we need a separate thread for that?

Or we can just merge them all and call it the Trade Spezza thread.

I think separating them is a great idea, I'm not into the trade proposals but I do like the rumors! Rumors should need some sort of link or something!

We could always separate the "TRADE SPEZZA!" stuff from the sane posts. That would usefully funnel people to the type of rumor thread they are looking for. Well, it would until Andy lets in a bad goal in a loss down the road.

Well then how about making the rumours/trade thread purely about trade proposals, and allow people to create a new thread for any new rumour that pops up?

I will discuss it with the other mods. No promises.

It's true, nothing would change. I've gotten used to how it is....I check it once in a while for a legit rumor and pop in once in a while for some random trade discussion and talk about different proposals. At this point, it is what it is.

Pretty much yeah, but as already pointed out by the mods, there's really nothing that can be done about it.

I don't see the need for two threads. If a rumour has legs, it tends to dominate that thread. When there aren't any credible rumours, it's mostly proposals. Seems fairly self-regulating to me.

I dont understand why you guys want them all in one place in the first place. Why not allow a realistic trade rumour thread from the media to have it's own thread.

They've already explained it. A rumour thread will end up like a proposal thread.

close this thread

Honestly, it is easier to monitor when everything is under one thread.

People make threads all the time without checking to see if there was a page on the very same subject earlier. People think if it is not on page 1 of the forums it has fallen into oblivion or something.

I also get a lot less PM's "Why did you delete my post?" When in actuality their post was never deleted, they just forgot what thread they posted in.
