#2592156 Definition of a real fan

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 April 2015 - 10:44 PM

Can we just agree that none of the mods here are "real fans"?


I mean, Harold is a Kings fan/slappy and the rest of the mods never post anymore.  Obviously, they couldn't handle the mediocrity of this team.  

We are still here, but we lurk behind closed doors and meddle in new ways to unfairly single out the ones we don't like and torture them as much as possible. It's followed by at least a 3 hour session in front of the mirror flexing our muscles and telling each other how tough we are.


Then we laugh. Hard. 


On topic, i'm pleasantly stunned by how well you little whipper snappers are handling yourselves in this thread, Carry on.


Also Jimmy, thanks for the reminder, your new sig is incoming.

I see you had exactly one post deleted from the Coyotes GDT that was part of a number of off-topic posts that were deleted regarding trolling/not trolling.  And the problem is?

The problem is that we moderated something. In Roboturner's perfect world, nothing on this site would get touched ever, anything that is said goes, and there are no repercussions for breaking the forums rules. 

We are going to moderate, because there are rules on this forum and it's our job to enforce them. If a GDT is going way off track after a loss and you lose a post because of the need for us to edit it, even though we at times have to remove dozens of other posts in the process that no one else seems to come here regularly and complain about, it's something you need to come to terms with. 


If this thread is to remain open solely for Roboturner to continue to revert back to in the event that we have to moderate something just to complain about, I don't see a constructive reason to leave it open at all. If you crave and explanation that badly, just let us know and we can submit formal warnings instead of simply removing the content, and in your warning you can have a detailed description of why it was moderated. 


So in response to "I see you guys are back to deleting my posts, meanwhile the "in" clique can post whatever the hell they want", my response is stop replying and contributing to off topic discussions that progress the derailing of threads and you won't have to worry about your posts being removed. We have full documentation of everything removed and it passes through Matt also, so instead of acting like the victim like we are pinpointing your individual post and removing it while leaving the rest up in the thread, state more factual information that isn't directed at bashing the moderation staff at every opportunity and state the truth that all the content is gone, including yours, that set that particular GDT off track.

What an impact to the NHL social community, this is upsetting news. 




Thoughts and prayers to his family and those close to him during this difficult time.

#2580177 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 March 2015 - 02:15 AM

Living in TN, I get to see a lot of Preds games here broadcasted locally, they are a strong squad, control games, and have the tools to go deep in the playoffs.


I know it's tough for this being a Wings fan site to have a strong opinion of another team that you may or may not watch too often, but they built their team the right way and I think they can contend and go pretty deep.


I also don't hate the trades they did make, I think the inevitable regular season losing skid came at the wrong time with the addition of their two new players, but long term, both will contribute in their own way. Santorelli was relatively strong on a weak Toronto squad, and Franson is a guy we would have liked to see here. 


I'll boldly predict conference finals. I also don't feel they are THE best team in the league, but I also don't rule them out of a potential conference final in the playoffs this season. They are better than some people here are giving them credit for. These games the Wings play against teams and seem to be lopsided, putting us on our heels, the Preds have done that against a lot of teams in a lot of games this year, good teams among lesser squads as well. They can dominate and control a game pretty firmly, and it happened without Rinne between the pipes also.


With failing teams in the South like Phoenix, I like to see Nashville thriving, competing, and attracting fans. It's good for the sport.

Silver lining.
But How do you get around without a license?

In Louisiana they saddle and ride gators to the store.

#2578936 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 March 2015 - 03:47 AM

This was definitely a stolen game by Howard. He was flat out phenomenal in multiple points of this game where the skaters were back on their heels and he had nothing but pressure coming his way. 


Zidlicky was very noticeable, contributed offensively, seemed comfortable with his passing game, especially to Zett on the PP, and had a firm presence in his first game out there.


I think after a bit of line tinkering and some practices, Cole will find a comfort zone and contribute the way management expects him to when they dealt for him. 


Overall, fun game to watch, fast paced at times, intense, and had a playoff atmosphere. Glad I was off tonight and got to watch it.

#2577097 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 March 2015 - 11:44 PM

If I was Erik Cole, I'd come into Detroit and get in a fight the first game I played.  If you punch someone your first game, you can be completely pedestrian the rest of your time here and everyone will still love you.  Just ask Brendan Smith. 

If Esteef were here he would approve of this logic.

Let's take it off the playground and back to respectful trade discussion. Points have been stated, it's getting heated, keep it under control please. The Wings making a trade is almost as rare as the Winter Olympics at this point, let's keep it friendly. 

#2576466 Hi , new to the forum

Awww, thanks guize.  :wub:


Also take this as an informative thread that if you ever make me mad,  I can make your signature whatever I want. Unicorns and Rainbows won't be withheld. 

#2575769 Hi , new to the forum

I went ahead and set the image as your signature for you. If you would prefer a different one or have one from another source just let me know and I can post that one for you instead.

#2575511 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

Solid victory after yet another horrendous 1st. Young Skywalker Glendening coming up strong again when it counts. One of those hard to watch but happy with the result kinds of games. Glad to take the regulation W here.

How to post what?
If you go into a thread, at the bottom of the screen there's a fast reply option, or you can hit reply and it'll take you to a separate page to post.

If you want to reply to someones comment, tap on the box containing the text you can quote their message and reply directly to it.

I think he means how to post up a signature image.


If you go to the top right hand corner of the site in the black bar, click on your username and go to "My Settings"


From there, in the left panel, you'll see "Signature"


Now you will see an area for text to edit your signature, if you click the tiny box with the tree in it below and a tad to the left of the smiley face, you can insert a link to the image. 


Say you wanted to use the Datsyuk sig, you would copy this link and paste it in the box after clicking the tree pic icon on the toolbar.




Once you submit it and save, that image becomes your signature, like my Nyquist one that posts below my replies in threads.
