    Not news

    I for one am tired of people tagging their threads as news when it is not news.

    Yep. Especially rumors tagged as news.

    The easy fix: report mis-tagged threads to the moderators with the report button. Problem solved.

    I feel the same exact way. People need to know the difference between News and a Rumor.

    Re: Not news

    There are plenty of things mislabeled on these forums, topics created in the wrong forum (Diane Miller's death isn't Disneyland Resort news, for example.) That's unfortunately the nature of a large scale forum like this with lax moderating.

    This topic as well, which belongs in "The Forums." A misplaced thread is another thing that's easily reported to the moderators with the Report Post button. (And so reported.)

    You mean like this thread?
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    A reminder that every single one of the moderating staff is an unpaid volunteer on this site. We don't have a set schedule that we work on the site, we don't get paid for what time we do spend on the site, we do what we do when we have time between real life because we love this site and love the owners... but we all have jobs, some of us multiple jobs and responsibilities outside of the site... so yes, things sometimes don't get resolved immediately. We also have to walk a fine line so that we don't get accused of "over moderating" on the site.

    Of all the things we have to do around here with the limited crew/time we have, dealing with tags is not high on the priority list.
