The Rules of Pacers Digest

Hello everyone,

Whether your are a long standing forum member or whether you have just registered today, it's a good idea to read and review the rules below so that you have a very good idea of what to expect when you come to Pacers Digest.

A quick note to new members: Your posts will not immediately show up when you make them. An administrator has to approve at least your first post before the forum software will later upgrade your account to the status of a fully-registered member. This usually happens within a couple of hours or so after your post(s) is/are approved, so you may need to be a little patient at first.

Why do we do this? So that it's more difficult for spammers (be they human or robot) to post, and so users who are banned cannot immediately re-register and start dousing people with verbal flames.

Below are the rules of Pacers Digest. After you have read them, you will have a very good sense of where we are coming from, what we expect, what we don't want to see, and how we react to things.

Rule #1

Pacers Digest is intended to be a place to discuss basketball without having to deal with the kinds of behaviors or attitudes that distract people from sticking with the discussion of the topics at hand. These unwanted distractions can come in many forms, and admittedly it can sometimes be tricky to pin down each and every kind that can rear its ugly head, but we feel that the following examples and explanations cover at least a good portion of that ground and should at least give people a pretty good idea of the kinds of things we actively discourage:

"Anyone who __________ is a liar / a fool / an idiot / a blind homer / has their head buried in the sand / a blind hater / doesn't know basketball / doesn't watch the games"

"People with intelligence will agree with me when I say that __________"

"Only stupid people think / believe / do ___________"

"I can't wait to hear something from PosterX when he/she sees that **insert a given incident or current event that will have probably upset or disappointed PosterX here**"

"He/she is just delusional"

"This thread is stupid / worthless / embarrassing"

"I'm going to take a moment to point and / laugh at PosterX / GroupOfPeopleY who thought / believed *insert though/belief here*"

"Remember when PosterX said OldCommentY that no longer looks good? "

In general, if a comment goes from purely on topic to something 'ad hominem' (personal jabs, personal shots, attacks, flames, however you want to call it, towards a person, or a group of people, or a given city/state/country of people), those are most likely going to be found intolerable.

We also dissuade passive aggressive behavior. This can be various things, but common examples include statements that are basically meant to imply someone is either stupid or otherwise incapable of holding a rational conversation. This can include (but is not limited to) laughing at someone's conclusions rather than offering an honest rebuttal, asking people what game they were watching, or another common problem is Poster X will say "that player isn't that bad" and then Poster Y will say something akin to "LOL you think that player is good". We're not going to tolerate those kinds of comments out of respect for the community at large and for the sake of trying to just have an honest conversation.

Now, does the above cover absolutely every single kind of distraction that is unwanted? Probably not, but you should by now have a good idea of the general types of things we will be discouraging. The above examples are meant to give you a good feel for / idea of what we're looking for. If something new or different than the above happens to come along and results in the same problem (that being, any other attitude or behavior that ultimately distracts from actually just discussing the topic at hand, or that is otherwise disrespectful to other posters), we can and we will take action to curb this as well, so please don't take this to mean that if you managed to technically avoid saying something exactly like one of the above examples that you are then somehow off the hook.

That all having been said, our goal is to do so in a generally kind and respectful way, and that doesn't mean the moment we see something we don't like that somebody is going to be suspended or banned, either. It just means that at the very least we will probably say something about it, quite possibly snipping out the distracting parts of the post in question while leaving alone the parts that are actually just discussing the topics, and in the event of a repeating or excessive problem, then we will start issuing infractions to try to further discourage further repeat problems, and if it just never seems to improve, then finally suspensions or bans will come into play. We would prefer it never went that far, and most of the time for most of our posters, it won't ever have to.

A slip up every once and a while is pretty normal, but, again, when it becomes repetitive or excessive, something will be done. Something occasional is probably going to be let go (within reason), but when it starts to become habitual or otherwise a pattern, odds are very good that we will step in.

There's always a small minority that like to push people's buttons and/or test their own boundaries with regards to the administrators, and in the case of someone acting like that, please be aware that this is not a court of law, but a private website run by people who are simply trying to do the right thing as they see it. If we feel that you are a special case that needs to be dealt with in an exceptional way because your behavior isn't explicitly mirroring one of our above examples of what we generally discourage, we can and we will take atypical action to prevent this from continuing if you are not cooperative with us.

Also please be aware that you will not be given a pass simply by claiming that you were 'only joking,' because quite honestly, when someone really is just joking, for one thing most people tend to pick up on the joke, including the person or group that is the target of the joke, and for another thing, in the event where an honest joke gets taken seriously and it upsets or angers someone, the person who is truly 'only joking' will quite commonly go out of his / her way to apologize and will try to mend fences. People who are dishonest about their statements being 'jokes' do not do so, and in turn that becomes a clear sign of what is really going on. It's nothing new.

In any case, quite frankly, the overall quality and health of the entire forum's community is more important than any one troublesome user will ever be, regardless of exactly how a problem is exhibiting itself, and if it comes down to us having to make a choice between you versus the greater health and happiness of the entire community, the community of this forum will win every time.

Lastly, there are also some posters, who are generally great contributors and do not otherwise cause any problems, who sometimes feel it's their place to provoke or to otherwise 'mess with' that small minority of people described in the last paragraph, and while we possibly might understand why you might feel you WANT to do something like that, the truth is we can't actually tolerate that kind of behavior from you any more than we can tolerate the behavior from them. So if we feel that you are trying to provoke those other posters into doing or saying something that will get themselves into trouble, then we will start to view you as a problem as well, because of the same reason as before: The overall health of the forum comes first, and trying to stir the pot with someone like that doesn't help, it just makes it worse. Some will simply disagree with this philosophy, but if so, then so be it because ultimately we have to do what we think is best so long as it's up to us.

If you see a problem that we haven't addressed, the best and most appropriate course for a forum member to take here is to look over to the left of the post in question. See underneath that poster's name, avatar, and other info, down where there's a little triangle with an exclamation point (!) in it? Click that. That allows you to report the post to the admins so we can definitely notice it and give it a look to see what we feel we should do about it. Beyond that, obviously it's human nature sometimes to want to speak up to the poster in question who has bothered you, but we would ask that you try to refrain from doing so because quite often what happens is two or more posters all start going back and forth about the original offending post, and suddenly the entire thread is off topic or otherwise derailed. So while the urge to police it yourself is understandable, it's best to just report it to us and let us handle it. Thank you!

All of the above is going to be subject to a case by case basis, but generally and broadly speaking, this should give everyone a pretty good idea of how things will typically / most often be handled.

Rule #2

If the actions of an administrator inspire you to make a comment, criticism, or express a concern about it, there is a wrong place and a couple of right places to do so.

The wrong place is to do so in the original thread in which the administrator took action. For example, if a post gets an infraction, or a post gets deleted, or a comment within a larger post gets clipped out, in a thread discussing Paul George, the wrong thing to do is to distract from the discussion of Paul George by adding your off topic thoughts on what the administrator did.

The right places to do so are:

A) Start a thread about the specific incident you want to talk about on the Feedback board. This way you are able to express yourself in an area that doesn't throw another thread off topic, and this way others can add their two cents as well if they wish, and additionally if there's something that needs to be said by the administrators, that is where they will respond to it.

B) Send a private message to the administrators, and they can respond to you that way.

If this is done the wrong way, those comments will be deleted, and if it's a repeating problem then it may also receive an infraction as well.

Rule #3

If a poster is bothering you, and an administrator has not or will not deal with that poster to the extent that you would prefer, you have a powerful tool at your disposal, one that has recently been upgraded and is now better than ever: The ability to ignore a user.

When you ignore a user, you will unfortunately still see some hints of their existence (nothing we can do about that), however, it does the following key things:

A) Any post they make will be completely invisible as you scroll through a thread.

B) The new addition to this feature: If someone QUOTES a user you are ignoring, you do not have to read who it was, or what that poster said, unless you go out of your way to click on a link to find out who it is and what they said.

To utilize this feature, from any page on Pacers Digest, scroll to the top of the page, look to the top right where it says 'Settings' and click that. From the settings page, look to the left side of the page where it says 'My Settings', and look down from there until you see 'Edit Ignore List' and click that. From here, it will say 'Add a Member to Your List...' Beneath that, click in the text box to the right of 'User Name', type in or copy & paste the username of the poster you are ignoring, and once their name is in the box, look over to the far right and click the 'Okay' button. All done!

Rule #4

Regarding infractions, currently they carry a value of one point each, and that point will expire in 31 days. If at any point a poster is carrying three points at the same time, that poster will be suspended until the oldest of the three points expires.

Rule #5

When you share or paste content or articles from another website, you must include the URL/link back to where you found it, who wrote it, and what website it's from. Said content will be removed if this doesn't happen.

An example:

If I copy and paste an article from the Indianapolis Star website, I would post something like this:

http://www.linktothearticlegoeshere.com/article
Title of the Article
Author's Name
Indianapolis Star

Rule #6

We cannot tolerate illegal videos on Pacers Digest. This means do not share any links to them, do not mention any websites that host them or link to them, do not describe how to find them in any way, and do not ask about them. Posts doing anything of the sort will be removed, the offenders will be contacted privately, and if the problem becomes habitual, you will be suspended, and if it still persists, you will probably be banned.

The legal means of watching or listening to NBA games are NBA League Pass Broadband (for US, or for International; both cost money) and NBA Audio League Pass (which is free). Look for them on NBA.com.

Rule #7

Provocative statements in a signature, or as an avatar, or as the 'tagline' beneath a poster's username (where it says 'Member' or 'Administrator' by default, if it is not altered) are an unwanted distraction that will more than likely be removed on sight. There can be shades of gray to this, but in general this could be something political or religious that is likely going to provoke or upset people, or otherwise something that is mean-spirited at the expense of a poster, a group of people, or a population.

It may or may not go without saying, but this goes for threads and posts as well, particularly when it's not made on the off-topic board (Market Square).

We do make exceptions if we feel the content is both innocuous and unlikely to cause social problems on the forum (such as wishing someone a Merry Christmas or a Happy Easter), and we also also make exceptions if such topics come up with regards to a sports figure (such as the Lance Stephenson situation bringing up discussions of domestic abuse and the law, or when Jason Collins came out as gay and how that lead to some discussion about gay rights).

However, once the discussion seems to be more/mostly about the political issues instead of the sports figure or his specific situation, the thread is usually closed.

Rule #8

We prefer self-restraint and/or modesty when making jokes or off topic comments in a sports discussion thread. They can be fun, but sometimes they derail or distract from a topic, and we don't want to see that happen. If we feel it is a problem, we will either delete or move those posts from the thread.

Rule #9

Generally speaking, we try to be a "PG-13" rated board, and we don't want to see sexual content or similarly suggestive content. Vulgarity is a more muddled issue, though again we prefer things to lean more towards "PG-13" than "R". If we feel things have gone too far, we will step in.

Rule #10

We like small signatures, not big signatures. The bigger the signature, the more likely it is an annoying or distracting signature.

Rule #11

Do not advertise anything without talking about it with the administrators first. This includes advertising with your signature, with your avatar, through private messaging, and/or by making a thread or post.

You aren't going to see the behind the back type of moves, or even a killer cross-over to pull your defender out of your passing lane.

    He is the epitome of simplistic fundamentals paired with hustle that finds it's way into a modest bench role and the hearts of millions of fans.

    I think what JOB likes is the pace Diener plays at. He tries to move with the ball at a high rate and is pretty good about staying aware of his off-the-ball movement.
    I would like to say that Diener showed better passing and better moves in the last 2 games than I credited him for here. He is still a backup caliber player that can be good for 10-20 minutes depending on the flow, but then I wasn't really denying that anyway.

      So that's losing this year, losing the next 2 as well, then JO expires. Unfortunately you have to resign Danny, Ike and maybe Quis. Oh, and either resign JO for much less or find another PF. All for about 25-30m, not counting any high ranking draft pick deals that come before then (usually around 2-3m I think), or Foster for that matter.

      Then after yet another year of probable losing with a team trying to find it's way and clear space you finally lose the Dun, Troy and Tins deals. Now you can actually do something with that money and maybe get into the FA market. Of course don't forget that Shawne might need resigned and then the year after this a guy perhaps like Eric Gordon, if the Pacers get lucky/unlucky (however you view all that losing). And you might still want Dun at that point.


      5 years of losing just to get good picks, some of which might be Bender, and none of which are promised to gel. I give you Kidd, Mashburn and Jim Jackson as example "A".

      I mean this seriously, what team in the NBA doesn't have an outlook just as positive as that? Even the Knicks will lose their contracts by then.

        I don't know if I've ever agreed with you more than what you are saying right here and right now.

        BTW, great great great examples of Kidd, Mashburn and Jackson. Perfect.

        I'm with you on this, there is no one sure fire way to be a contender. If there was then everybody would do it.

          The closest thing to a sure fire method is make moves based on making the chemistry (on two fronts: Basketball and Personnel) good or keeping it there while molding the team around talented building blocks.

          I think we're starting to get 1/3 of it right, but 2/3 are still ahead. We're getting the Personnel chemistry back, but now we need talented building blocks and we need a team that works better as a team. Actually fixing the talent might fix both at the same time if it's the right guy or guys.

          Now, how do you do it? Well when you're low in talent you have to add some through the draft first, then you start to trade second IMO.

            Re: Where do we go from here - yes a real plan

            At this point we have two options.

            1. We can continue on as we are and go into rebuilding mode.

            2. We can go after a true impact go-to player and do what it takes to get that player.

            I'm hoping Bird is looking at option 2. Because having a bunch of role players hasn't won us any championships in our entire history. There's no reason to think it's going to happen now. Has this franchise lost sight of it's goal?

            The goal isn't to cruise along and pick up garbage contracts, deal with off court incidents, and miss the post season. The goal isn't to come up with team slogans [because this aint High School].

            Championships is what it's about. Not getting to the playoffs. Not just being competitive. Not just doing what the fans want. Championship is the goal. I think over the last couple of years this team has really been selling itself short. Being too conservative with the moves it makes. Larry Bird has Jermaine O'Neal declining but still tradable, has an experienced front office veteran in Donnie Walsh to go to for advice, yet in the off-season all he could come up with is Travis Diener and Kareem Rush?

            I want to see some bold moves, but bold moves that make sense. Let's go ahead and do what we have to do with Tinsley, and maybe even Jermaine, and lets get players here that are going to get us to our goal.

            If I'm Larry Bird, nobody is untouchable. Everybody has a price, and I'd be willing to pay a price to get a player that's going to fit better than what we've got now. If I'm Larry, I'm looking at what needs to be done right this second. We need a true aggressive leader type of player in here that can get his own shot, can make his own shot, can defend some, can get to the line, and can stay out of trouble. We have enough guys that somebody would want in exchange for this type of player, so Larry needs get on it.

              So in other words, you want an all-star or superstar. That's the type of thing every team in the league is looking to add, often times even ones that already have a player like that.

              That's like saying you want to trade all your bad contracts for cap relief and draft picks. Again, what team ISN'T looking for that?

                  To answer both questions, the Spurs.

                  Anyway, yes I'm aware that most teams are looking for what we're looking for. But unlike most teams, we continuously fail at landing those players. We're always mentioned in rumors, but most of the time a rumor is all that is. I'm tired of seeing us be conservative and picky. We don't want this guy because he stole a computer when he was 18. We don't want that guy because he was injured once. We don't want that guy because he threw a chair once. We don't want that guy because he yelled at his coach once...

                  A lot of us talk about what the hell we don't want as if we have a team full of saints. As if we have a team full of guys that sleep with the bible and knit during the nights instead of hitting the clubs. Reality is that every one of our players go out. Every one of our player put themselves in positions that could be considered questionable. Hell, my buddy 2 nights ago called me from the Triangle Lounge in San Francisco telling me he saw Troy Murphy leaving there at 2:15am dressed like some punk guy.

                  I just want us to take a damn chance. I want some players with some edge to them. I want the toughness back. I want players here with some testicular fortitude. I'm tired of having a bunch of guys that are looking for somebody else to make the next move. It would be different if we were like the Warriors (my 2nd favorite team and I'm a former season ticket holder of theirs during their worst years), where everybody was agressive. We have a coach that wants everybody to be aggressive, but that isn't the strength of most of our guys. Then we have the aggressive ones that shouldn't be so aggressive [cough cough Tinsley].

                  So if what I'm asking for is basically saying that we need an All-Star or Superstar, then hell yes that's what we need because what we have aint workin. We have enough pieces to get one, we need to make it happen.

                      Now, how do you do it? Well when you're low in talent you have to add some through the draft first, then you start to trade second IMO.
                      I agree on the idea, but I'm not sure the personnel is as fixed as you think. Some of it has to do with newness and being away from the losing. Honestly to me it seems like the sniping on court between players is growing and perhaps worse than last year.

                      Again, I hated the GS trade because it moved Jackson for the wrong reason, and in the case of both Al and Jack it didn't address the on-court chemistry issues one bit, let alone the financial situation. And even the off-court stuff, despite all the talk, isn't a sure-fire thing as I just mentioned. They addressed the FAN-player chemistry, the one thing that really doesn't matter.

                      It's a trick, you think "move the guy they don't like and they'll return", but then the fans don't make good on that. So why make a deal to appease them? The answer is you don't.

                      If they wanted to deal Jack, if they needed to deal Al, then they needed to consider the current or future coach, as well as the current and future chances of winning. There is no way TPTB could really think the GS deal would take them from 42 wins to 52 wins or something, so why take on the extra cash to stay about the same?


                      Back to the chemistry thing, it's not just nice guys get along. There are passive and aggressive types that feed each other, guys a player can complain to, guys that can get a teammate to man up, all sorts of stuff. It could be that Dun starts taking offense to "street ball" Tins getting on him for his choices since Dun "knows the game" as a coach's kid. It could be that JO intimidates Danny, or that Danny and Shawne resent each other for filling the same role.

                      Who the F knows. All I know is that so far I'm not sold that the current version of TPTB know any better than we do. That worries me.

                      My thing with Rick was this: he was a PROVEN winner. He'd done it with so many different flavors of rosters that you know it's legit. Stackhouse, sure. Rip and Billups, okay. Kenny Anderson, yes. Tins, yes. Ron and JO and Al, yes. Without Reggie, yes. Post brawl without Ron or Jack, yes.

                      So when things go south maybe you question other aspects, maybe you wonder why this coach has suddenly, shockingly lost touch rather than dumping him and taking this odd direction of non-change.

                      Look, I said they HAD to stand pat, not that I wanted them too. They have painted themselves in a corner. I wouldn't dump another coach to solve the problem, I'd start putting down paint remover instead and realize you aren't getting out of this quickly. You'll have to free up some salary to make the losing more tolerable and you'll have to pick a player or two to build around.

                      I like JO quite a bit, but he's not that. I'm not even saying he has to go, maybe there just isn't anything that improves the situation with him moving. But you don't acquire players to compliment him at this point. Same with Tins. You either buy into Dun, Danny and/or Shawne or you buy into this year's draft pick.

                      Then both TPTB and JOB develop a plan that gives this the best odds of working, rather than trying to force something to happen (ahem, running, being defense first, being a post-up team, going for rebounds, anything). Let the talent determine the team's identity because you just don't get unlimited choices. Not every team gets to have Nash.

                      And BTW, being so deep into the season it's time to perhaps own up to their weak playoff chances and start adjusting for what they think they can do in this draft now.

                      It's true that the best laid plans go afoul, but the worst laid plans go EVEN MORE afoul. Go ahead and plan on getting that SG, PG, heck Love for PF, I don't care. Then deal guys you have now to get bench pieces that will be primed to compliment that next year or open up cap or trade options for next year to do that.

                      It doesn't have to be picks or expiring even. Just don't trade for 2 SGs if you really think you might see one you like near your draft position. Right now it doesn't feel like any plan near this level of vision is in place. It feels like they are busy working on bailing out this boat instead.

                          *They should stand pat.
                          *Quit trading for the sake of trading.
                          *Retain all draft picks for the near future.
                          *Draft upperclassmen with experience and an inkling of character.
                          *Do not hand out any more extensions until absolutely sure about the player.
                          *Allow the fans to get acclimated to the freakin' roster for a change.
                          *Return to a grassroots PR approach and get as many former Pacers as possible on board. Get Slick Leonard, Mel Daniels, Quinn Buckner & Darnell Hillman out and about. Have current players host things, do autograph sessions etc more often and actually let people know they're happening.
                          *Televise the games.

                            Well if Tinsley keeps acting up and JOs knee does its thing...and the uncanny ability of us to lose talent to injury kicks up again this year I would say to you "whats luck got to do, got to do with it?" Indeed, "whats luck, with tanking set in motion?"
