Good idea fletch. as it stands i tend not to go on the wrestling interweb until after ive seen a PPV, but to know that there wont be spoilers in the chatbox means i can read monday's TNA posts after a WWE PPV

good job :]

Ehh... I guess it shouldn't matter for me because I don't watch WWE PPV, I get results from WIKI. And I watch TNA, but no one else watches TNA, or just take for ever to do so. So I never get to talk about the PPV afterwards anyways.

Maybe this needs bumping so people can't bitch and moan if they head towards a ban.
 
Bare in mind the UK don't get pay per views for TNA until the following friday.
 
It's not like we don't have enough relevant threads to talk about something as it is.

I actually think we need to be stricter about shoutbox spoilers, nothing is more annoying than when you've tried so hard to avoid threads that will give away results and then someone just blurts them out in the shoutbox.

As Admin said PPV discussion should be kept to the threads as there is always a open thread on the PPV in question as well as generally several other topics relating to the event.

I would actually fully back a ruling where PPV spoilers are strictly forbidden from the shoutbox at all times and anyone who breaks the rule is issued a warning and even a temporary ban if they break the rule consistently, we try and discourage all wrestling chat from the shoutbox anyway as it often means the threads get neglected as a result.

A BAN!?!? You would ban someone for a slip of the fingers or a innocent spoiler admin?

That would depend but I don't think their is any excuse for anyone to break the rule.
 
Long term members have known about this thread for many months and newbies should assume not spoiling something for people is the way to operate.
 
Now TNA pay per views are shown in the UK two days later on the friday we need to be stricter now.

Now I saw something on another forum, a movie forum. And before your could do ANYTHING you had to go to their rules thread. Is there a way we can do this to where every newbie that signs up sees the rules, with this included. I think this should be added to the forum rules.

Thats actually a good idea - Admin is their anyway you can have newbies directed to the rules page and perhaps put NO SPOILERS IN THE SHOUTBOX in bold letters so that way noone has any excuse for it.

Its a problem with TNA now because both Impact and PPV's are shown on almost a week delay over here in the UK and many members on here Im sure are like myself and prefer to watch wrestling on their tv's rather than have to go through the hassle of finding a download and then having to watch it on their pc's.
Live streams are a waste of time because they are really hard to find now and the quality is normally so bad its almost unwatchable, plus you have to consider the time difference, not everyone will be prepared to sit up untill 4am to watch a TNA PPV.

Not sure if their is a modification we can add that pops up a window for newbies to read our rules before they start posting. I'll look into it.
 
We don't want regulars having to avoid the place incase they come across something in a shoutbox message.
 
If they click into a thread and see something that's different.

Today on two different occasions spoilers for last nights Money In The Bank PPV were plastered all over the shoutbox. BFP then later informed me it had happened at least five times since the PPV had aired.

Dont want to sound like a moany twat but we need to be stricter about the no spoiler rule otherwise regulars will just end up avoiding the forum until they've seen the PPV's, there are a few newbies as well that insist on talking wrestling in the shoutbox rather than the threads and often post up spoilers despite being told its against forum rules.
