Multiple Postings

Do I really have to read about Sunnybrook Field Space, May 27th in three different threads? or the next touring tryout in 2 threads? Pick one and post there. Seriously :x

Terry,

You're getting old and crotchety.

i have to back terry on this one. though i'm not old and only somewhat crotchety.

although maybe next time the subject heading should be "STOP MULTIPLE POSTINGS" in case someone takes it as a directive. you know, like andy.

I'm game with stopping multiple postings. If our forums aren't distinct enough that people need to post in numerous rooms to recieve an audience, maybe we need to consolidate or redefine our forums?

I don't see what the big hulabaloo is about.... a case of making mountains out of mole hills. I mean one can always choose to just ignore the post in another forum right?
In addition:
a) TUC members are pretty respectful with posting in multiple forums, in that they only post in forums that relate to their post and post with the same subject heading.
b) The posts seem to be more of the informative variety... something like this tournament/tryouts takes place, where, when etc.
c) Not everybody checks the BBS that often so you can image the number of new posting highlighted since their last visit. Therefore multiple posting will get the word out.... which is a good thing.
d) Unless one divides the forum into "Ultimate" and "Non Ultimate", and even then, it is impossible to make each forum distinctive... one will always encounter a subject that will fall under more than one forum - the world isn't black or white, but mostly gray.

I can see this being a bit annoying but something to RANT AND RAVE about? I don't think so :wink:
