    A reminder about some of the rules:

    - In order to keep good discussions and attitudes, we enforce the site rules.

    - Part of those rules is trolling, which is posting for the sole purpose of starting a dispute, antagonizing other posters, or disrupting the forum.

    - If you see anyone violating the site rules, PLEASE USE THE REPORT BUTTON. The post will be immediately reviewed by global mods and that will keep some peace and order.

    - If you have any questions or comments, you can PM any of the mods. We actively discuss how to keep the boards friendly and with good hockey talk. Wild moderators: Lapa, Minnesota, Bazeek and TaLoN

    Thanks!

    To add to this (although Jarick did a great job highlighting the big points):

    -The Minnesota forum is slanted towards the team. Same goes with any other team forum; if you decide to post on one that isn't the Wild, be respectful, courteous and remember that it's a board for fans of said team.

    -The general boards are "neutral." What may be a trolling post on a team board may not be one in the NHL or prospect boards.

    -Debate the point, not the poster.

    One more thing, when you see a bad post and you report it, just do that. There's absolutely no reason to quote the post and respond.

    And posting on other team boards is at your own risk. Expect consequences if you had a bad purpose.

    Since it's been fairly heated here the last couple weeks, just a reminder of the site rules...

    I'd like to add a couple things.

    First, let's avoid the "you're not a GM, you're not a scout, you're not a pro hockey player" BS. Obviously. None of us are (especially since Kassian was traded :sarcasm:). The reality is this is a hockey fan forum where we frequently give our opinions, agree, and disagree. This isn't a debate club where we're trying to score points and win arguments.

    Second, there's been a lot of little snipes here and there about posters being overly positive or negative. I don't think this is conducive to good hockey talk. It borders on flaming as you're focused on the poster and not the message.

    Let's keep it friendly and civil!

    UPDATE:

    Visiting fans, keep in mind that this is the Wild board and any inflammatory posts will be considered trolling. Wild fans, do not reply to inflammatory posts; report them.

    Thank you.

    Now that the season has started, a reminder for everyone regarding links to streaming services.

    Streams/Proxies – (UPDATED 10/17/15) Per site admins: "Links to illegal streams may not be posted. The forums may not be used to solicit links to streams." Because of DMCA issues this policy covers all threads, including gameday threads. We do not permit any discussion of illegal streaming services or proxy use whatsoever.

    Also,

    Highlight Streams/Video Clips - (UPDATED 11/19/15) We require users to include accompanied commentary so these can fall under fair use. The same applies for video clips. The purpose of the posting the clip needs to be clear; the viewer needs to know that the intent of the poster is to spur discussion. The fact that the site permits comments is not enough to indicate that intent.

    Warnings or infractions will be issued if you post or ask for a link to an illegal stream. This comes from the site owner, CraveOnline Media LLC.

    If you have questions regarding this, PM one of the Wild moderators: Lapa, Minnesota, gphr513 or Generic User.

    Thanks.

    The playoffs are starting this week as you know, so I'm going to remind everyone of the following rule:

    You also can't insult, belittle or demean the fans of another team even if you do it on the Wild board.

    Tempers can run hot during the playoffs, so if you are going to opposing team's board, please be respectful and civil.


    As always, you can always PM one of the HFWild moderators if you have any questions.

    Thanks everyone, and go Wild!

    I know everyone is frustrated right now, but please stay civil.

    Thanks.

    Wanted to bump this up and stick it again, just as a friendly reminder.

    Playoff season always makes tempers run a little hotter, this is natural, but please be mindful of the rules, and do not attack fellow site members.

    DO NOT go on opposing team's boards to troll or otherwise cause trouble. You will be dealt with harshly. Just as we will deal harshly with anyone trolling on HFWild.

    If you see a post you believe breaks the rules, please report it and it will be dealt with as soon as possible.

    If you have any questions or concerns you can always contact any of us on the HFWild mod team. Thanks for your cooperation, folks!

    Please keep tank talk to the tank talk thread as much as possible.

    The Office of Strategic Planning - Tank Talk

    We understand the trade and prospects threads can naturally have talk of tanking as natural subject matter, but please keep it limited to discussion relevance there.

    Overt tank talk in other threads (especially GDTs) will either be moved to the tank talk thread or deleted.

    Thank you
