Sounds good to me.

I dislike the daily ITK discussion thread for two reasons.

1. Some of us only check the site once or twice a day, and simply can't be arsed to wade through 50 pages of irrelevant twaddle and off-topic nonsense to get to the three or four posts of interest.

2. I've just discovered there are apparently rules governing what can and can't be posted here (even though to me it seems like loads of people just talking rubbish), with no alternative place to post stuff which isn't worthy of the 50 gospel pages of the daily ITK thread.

I'm with you.

:D

Which is why the ITK RO exists..

If you want the info without trawling through posts, go into the SC ITK subsection, all legitimate info is posted there.

As for the rules changing, A+C repeatedly states that unsubstantiated Twitter bollocks is not allowed and often opens a thread stating as much. Instead of going on and on about where to post it, perhaps you should have just said 'sorry, didn't know,' and moved on. Instead of spamming the thread with defensive posts about not knowing and where to post it shit.

Also, you can freely post all the twitter bollocks you want in player threads, go forth and spread your unsubstantiated bilge.

I did. Then everyone began a discussion on the subject.

That tends to happen on internet discussion forums. One could be excused for thinking they were designed for that very purpose! :D

Just got a vision of A & C rousing in his Caribbean bolthole:

'A & C! A & C! A & C!'
'...urgh...urgh...'
'Get your ass down here now A & C, those damned natives are getting restless on your ITK thread! They be moaning and bitching and wanting their twitter back and all you doing is laying up in that damn king-size water bed...'
'Ok, Ok, i'm coming'
'You want your ban-stick?'
'YEAH! THE BIG ONE'

Just them? Did you not repeatedly ask where to post your twitter bollocks? Me thinks you protest too much.

I know I'm a horrible stand-in for A+C, he'd be able to tell you to take your twitter shit elsewhere much more creatively.

Thanks for the dislike Gibbo, I'm glad you support the notion of breaking the ITK Discussion thread rules. Heaven forbid someone answers points about someone wanting to post it here.

I've just remembered why I go for months without posting on here.

You break a rule you weren't aware existed, designed to prevent heinous crimes such as "posting things in the wrong place" scandals, then people who didn't create the rule and aren't charged with enforcing the rule decide to do so anyway, probably while wearing a little "I'm a moderator" had they fashioned out of tin foil and some old buttons, and if you ask what on earth's going on they get deeply offended and alert the police.

I'm sitting here now awaiting my inevitable arrest.

However the whole point of this discussion is that there's some stuff which doesn't belong in either, as highlighted above, thus leading to this conversation.

Did you miss that bit..? :LOL:
For what it's worth I generally agree. A 'gossip' thread would cover a lot of bases.

I think the problem was that the twitter thread killed this thread, and ended up filled with loads of ”it's bollocks” or ”nah it's spot on” arguments.

Spurger King has spoken.

This thread is for ITK and the discussion of that information
If there is information from someone you know who shouldn't be posted in here then it goes into the players threads just like media reports.
If you know they are a WUM, dont post it

There is a thread in General football for other teams

If this thread is quiet we will let it go a bit off topic, but it doesnt take much to have a look in the players threads or to other parts of the forum

I disliked because i... disliked, you came across a bit rude and arrogant. Its not breaking the ITK Discussion thread rules is it?

Just seems petty, I sounded rude because we get this every time someone posts twitter gets told it's not allowed and then they spend 4 pages whining about it. As much as I like Spurvert, his info is not allowed and A+C has stated this many times and has done so in regards to unsubstantiated twitter too. He almost always reiterates the rules in the opening post for every thread too, not to mention there's a stickied thread with the rules in it. It's just laziness to claim you didn't know when the rules aren't hard to find.

this is the rules thread - http://spurscommunity.co.uk/index.php?threads/the-rules-we-shall-be-assuming-you-have-read-these-and-act-accordingly.91333/

It is located 3 threads below this one.

Depends. If it drives people away from the site because it ends up being a free for all on any old bollocks, it could put the future of the site at risk, and obviously that IS a bad thing.

The quality of ITK gathered here is what this site is most well known for. The mods just want to protect it.

The decent ITK isn't in this thread though is it? That's what the ITK forum is for.
