    I believe it should be kept as is, the only change I would make is punish and ban any one that becomes abusive to other members.
    I do support an intelligent and respectful conversation, that would attract more members to the site !

    With a new CEO hopefully the club won't keep supporters in the dark anymore, and actually debunk any media rumours fast.

    It's also the off season / pre season. It will pick up again. Always does.

    You should never burn your sources.
    With all due respect to the mods, I don’t know you & won’t be sending you a PM with my sources. That’s the only reason I haven’t posted some good info I’ve got since this rumour tab was made.

    Why can’t you have one rumour thread sticky in the Bulldogs discussion page?
    People will actually read it then

    100% never burn your source. A close friend of mine has married into the family of one of our players. I dont get weekly updates, however when i see him he will usually have a couple of good things to say...
    I will say one thing that not to many have, that our players were in a bit of a divide the last 2yrs and alot has stemmed from des and alot of players felt the club weren't listening to them.

    Tried that and it was a mess. Not to mention crap in bulldogs discussion.

    The other (big) reason we have the sub forum and tags now is so we no longer need to worry about verified sources (or defamation if someone makes false or misleading comments).

    If we went back to the old way we would need to.

    Plus it means users can pick and choose what rumors to read based on tags.

    Fair enough mate. Just my two cents.
    If someone posted a rumour saying player X raped his cat that’s what moderators are for.
    If it’s just about player movement which I assume 99% are I don’t see how you’d get sued for defamation, especially with it being a public forum.

    All good mate :)

    But yeah the current setup means no need to PM or reveal sources, just tag the thread as "no source".

    Means that why NRL Lurker shit gets reposted you don't have to read it, you can just ignore the thread :)

    Haha cool I didn’t realise that.
    Will it make it back to the main section?

    Nah the single thread was a nightmare to administer and follow/read.

    It's under it's own subforum because it's not always just Bulldogs rumours in there.

    Rumours subforum technically sits under \Rugby League tree (parallel to Bulldogs Discussion and Rugby League General).
