Our Entire Forum Will Be Closed

My fellow moderators and the administrators are saying they will close down this forum without notice if those who are trolling and those discussing football do not stop IMMEDEATELY.

This forum is meant to discuss stadium/arena architecture and that ALONE. Any discussion about teams will be instantly deleted. Discussion related to the olympics or related general sports will be permitted. Any users who do not abide by these rules will be banned indefinately.

Thank you

SUPPORT A SPORTS SECTION HERE


To close this section is to let the trolls win.

Closing the forum means the Trolls win.
Maybe if members where educated in that you dont respond to a troll we wouldnt need to go to these lengths.

@ Maccabi

You have made loads of thread on sports in this section...one of the reasons as to why you were brigged.

Pour example http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=332376&page=1

That sports section idea of mine is supposed to take the sports out of this section, not bring sports onto SSC.

I totally agree that we should be clamping down on trolls here, but closing down the forum is going a bit far...where exactly is that gonna get us eh? That's like saying if a small minority of people screw up, everyone gts punished...

I must admitt though, on a couple of threads now I have wandered into the realm of sports players/teams becasue there isn't really a decent sports section to discuss it logically without having all the usual club riavlry bickerers.

Oh, and one more thing, can I ask the mods to please be more alert to the constant re-incarnations of BuBomb that keep appearing, cus he is derailing many a good thread, protending to be someone else!

Thnx

What do the 'trolls' win? Nothing. I think you're all taking this all a bit too seriously. Discussion about sports stadia is ALWAYS going to go slightly off topic eg in Wembley thread with nothing happening for weeks and no new pictures being published, England then publish their World Cup squad and of course its going to be mentioned.

To throw the toys out of the pram because of this is letting everyone down.

It's because of you two that this thread is even here.

If you two went away and never returned this place would be fine and dandy.


Youre goal has always been to ruin this section and annoy us, the closing of this section would mean you have succeded in that goal.

i think going a bit off topic,and talking football, is not whats caused all this.More to do with the delibeate attempt to wind people up,posting pictures of the twin towers etc etc etc

Hold on there Custer. For the most part I've done nothing wrong and neither has my colleague. Its not our fault you're all a bunch of cry babies, who can't handle the odd irreverent comment or picture. We contribute as much as anyone else to actual discussion, and sometimes if someone (eg 40acres) is looking for an aguement we'll give him one.

It doesn't make us bad people. It is the rest of you stopped PMing the mods all the time then we wouldn't have a problem - the mods are sick of all your whining and they'll close this section to shut YOU up.
