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.

No, if the Pacers want to compete for a championship they need to do better than West in my opinion.
    The two bolded comments I can agree with but there is no PF that will be on the market that makes the Pacers compete for a championship in 2013. Josh Smith is the closest and I doubt the Pacers have the cash to pay for him. Milsap has my vote for the right price (he had it last year when the Pacers signed West for 2 years ending the same time West contract ended) but thats a slight upgrade that I wouldn't call a championship move.

    The real problem is that the PF positon is not the issue. The Pacers still need a star that can take over the game and most Pacer fans know they won't get one via FA because they hope Paul George is that guy. Like it or not thats where we are at.

      daschysta;1508319]Who predicted that he would score 20/21? I think you misunderstood, some people brought up the fact that he was recently scoring that much in support of the argument that he'll likely score more than he did last season next year due to health. Noone has even predicted an All-Star appearance for West next season, let alone compared him currently, or in his prime to Lebron or Howard, misrepresenting the arguments of the other side by using gross exaggerations is no way to discuss anything...
      Exaggerations are the ones that people use to tell us how much the Pacers need West and yes I have seen people still predicting what you predicted last year, that West is going to average 20 and 10.

      I would argue his leadership has been huge, you need to do no more than listen to his teammates talk about how big it has been to understand where that idea comes from. You are the one that said straight up, that West is in the bottom part of starting PF's offensively due to raw ppg. Who has argued that he's a great defender? You keep changing your argument friend. It's valid to do what Seth did because Tyler is horrible on offense and on defense. West is maybe a bit below average defensively, good offensively (worlds better than Tyler on that end) and brings his fundamentals and intangibles. Tyler is an even worse defender than West, neither are quick enough laterally to be very good there, but at least West understands team defensive concepts and doesn't hurt everyone else, Tyler on the other hand is constantly out of position and fouls way more.
      Yes his leadership is great but is overrated the same way people overrated the crap out of DJ's leadership and nope I'm not changing my argument, I used PPG's RPG's and his DEFENSE to compare him to other power forwards and he is on the bottom.

      edit: I also forgot to mention that Tyler is a better defender than West, Tyler is better at moving his feet and staying in front of people so if Seth is going to crap on Tyler for his bad D(according to him) he needs to also crap on West.

        We have early Bird rights we can resign him to pretty much whatever he likes we can sign him 175% of his previous salary(10 million). If we want him back and he wants to be back there wont be an issue. That is why I loved his deal at the time I just wish we would of done the same with DJ and gave him a 2 year deal so we had some type of bird rights he will likely be a rental but West will be back IMO depending on how the season goes.

          Not sure we have to neccesarily have a "take over" star meaning someone who is going to be scoring just garrish numbers. We do need Paul to take a big step forward consistent with his potential and for Roy to take one more step forward similar to the one he took last season. If Paul turns into a guy who can put up 18-20 points a night (doesn't have to actually do it, since the team is so balanced, but he needs to be capable of it) and Roy gets to where he can play 32-33 mpg instead of 29-30 and can post 15-16 ppg 10-11 rpg, and they do it while West and Danny are still playing at a high level then we'll be in good shape to play against any team in the league.

          I think that George Hill has some potential as a "closing" type player too, he can slash and put the ball on the floor better than any of our other starters. Granger actually consistently posts some of the highest 4th quarter numbers in the league too, and West isn't bad at closing either, since he can put the ball on the floor better than most power forwards and is so reliable with the mid ranged J.

          We just need to have an offense that knows where it wants to go, and knows what to do if that first option is cut off. That is our "closing problem" so much as it actually exists. Too often I got the feeling that we would be dead set on doing one thing, but if the other team anticipated it and cut off the option we just went into a broken offense. It happened at the end of lots of games, and it definitely happened against Miami quite a bit, remember, games 1 and 4 were really close even in the closing minutes, I think we were within 2 with 5 minutes in game 1 and within 5 with 2 minutes in game 4. However, at the end of games Miami would either double team Hibbert or West or aggressively front, and we didn't know what to do in response. Hopefully Frank has been thinking about it long and hard all offseason long and has drawn up some plays that are more varied, and contain contingencies in case the first option is cut off, and he does a better job explaining the contingencies to the players. The offense needs more nuance, especially late in games and doubly so late in games in the playoffs.

          If we do that we don't have to have one huge offensive star, 5 players capable of 15+ every night would be more than enough. Hopefully Granger plays like he did post ASB all year long next year, because that Granger could potentially be a great closer for us himself, even last season Granger was extremely clutch, and scored the 6th most pp48 minutes of "crunch time" averaging 38.4 (crunch time defined as portions of 4th quarters or overtimes with less than 5 minutes to go, with neither team up by more than 5 points) better than every one else in the NBA other than Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Russel Westbrook, not bad company to be in if you're looking for a clutch scorer. Additionally he shot .475/.400/.920. Compare that to his per 48 minute per game numbers for the year, which were 27 ppg on .416/.381/.873, meaning that he not just marginally, but substantially upped his production late in close games when we needed him most, scoring 11.4 more ppg than his average per48 ppg total, shot 47.5 % vs. 41.6% from the field, 40% vs. 38.1% from 3 and 92% vs. 87.3% from the line.

          Now Granger didn't come through vs. Miami, but i'm interested in when he got hurt, because to me, it seemed like after that Philly game just before the season ended, where he had to get leave after tweaking something he was never the same, which stuck out, since up until that point post ASB he had been playing arguably the best ball of his career and was looking like a real first option. I wonder, because he played very well vs. Chicago the year before in the playoffs, and they were an even better defensive team than last year's Miami Heat. If he was hurt during the series I guess I can't blame him much, but some of the games were close enough that it could have made a difference. I really hope that the injection of platelet rich plasma in his knee puts some spring in his step, because last year, just like all seasons since his breakout year, Danny's performance correlated with the Pacers winning or losing more than any other single player except perhaps Hibbert.

          In Pacer Wins

          20.5 ppg
          5.1 rpg
          2 apg
          .8 bpg
          1 spg

          33.1 mpg

          .436/.439/.880

          In Pacer Losses

          15.2 ppg
          4.6 rpg
          1.4 apg
          .4 bpg
          .9 spg

          33.5 mpg

          .372/.270/.854

          Danny is still our bellwether, when he plays well it tends to result in wins, when he doesn't the Pacers lose the vast majority of the time, the sharp difference between each scenario suggests great variance in the dispersal of outcomes, in other words a strong positive correlation between Danny's statistical output and the team winning or losing.

          Our fate lies with Granger being more consistent offensively as much as anything else. Results suggest he can be a very nice closer if the team can run their offense late effectively and keep it close enough for Granger to pull us through in the clutch.
          Goodbye Captain, My Captain. I wish you had the chance to sink or swim with your ship on its quest for the "ship".

            Find a single post that actually predicted that West would be 20-10 ON THIS TEAM last season coming off of an ACL injury as severe as the one he was coming off of. I doubt you find more than maybe one radical outlyer. Most were arguing that West has proven to be capable of big numbers, but realized, given the make up of this team, he was unlikely to post them, and that isn't even taking the ACL injury into consideration.

            Now, and notice the disclaimer IF reports are accurate that physically, he is back to 100 percent of where he was before he got injured, then there is no reason to believe that he wouldn't be capable of numbers roughly on par with what he was putting up in NO at the age of 29 or 30 just because he's 32 now. West never really relied on athleticism at all, and his skills don't seem to have declined so I don't see why on some other team he wouldn't be able to put up 17-19 ppg 7-8 rpg in his traditional minutes.

            I mean, even in April of last season, as he was finally starting to feel like his old self according to him, he put up 15.2 ppg 6.1 rpg 1.9 apg .7 bpg .9 spg in 28.9 mpg on 54.2 percent from the field, translate those numbers to per36, which he's proven he can play multiple times in his career and he was putting up
            18.9 ppg 7.6 rpg 2.4 apg and around a block and a steal Which LO AND BEHOLD, are almost exactly what he was putting up in New Orleans with comparable minutes.

            If you want a bigger sample size take post ASB as a whole, which includes games from before he admitted to finally feeling back to himself, but whatever.

            Over the final 33 games per 36 he averaged

            16.36 ppg
            7.93 rpg
            2.6 apg
            and around 1 block and 1 steal

            51 percent from the field


            I don't see why the argument that on a team that leaned on him more, if reports are true that he's physically back to as good or better than where he was his final season in NO, he could put up comparable numbers to then. It isn't like his skills have declined, or he's lost much athleticism since then, which his game never relied on anyhow.
            Goodbye Captain, My Captain. I wish you had the chance to sink or swim with your ship on its quest for the "ship".

              Ah, good catch on West's status as an Early Bird FA. I thought he only qualified for non-Bird. But non-Bird does allow for 120% of previous salary, which IMO should have been more than enough anyway.

              On DJ, non-Bird applies, so we can re-sign him to up to 120% of $3.5m ($4.2m), or simply use the non-taxpayer MLE ($5m) on him. It's not a lot, but then do we really want to pay more for a backup PG? Depends I guess on whether you see him as a future starter.

              OR, we could renounce the rights to both players, and re-enter the FA market with $8-9m in cap space as some posters here want. This seems unlikely to me, but who knows.

              • Re: Keeping David West

                Well you are not going to get a lot with 8-9mln and I'm rather fond of West, so IF this is the room we have it's a total no-brainer to me.

                I agree with Pacers4ever that it really is a shame that proposed trade to Charlotte didn't come through. There was a second year for DJ in that deal. I would have liked it also if we would have offered a second year to him when we tried to sign him as a FA, but I think it's likely he turned it down himself and they apparantly really wanted him so here we are. I hope it doesn't completely bites us in the ***, but we'll see.

                  If it was a one-on-one game, Tyler would probably be a slightly better defender than West. Unfortunately for Tebrough, both offensively and defensively, there are 9 other guys on floor with him.

                  As it is, he's a drastically worse offensive player and a moderately worse defensive player West.

                    I'd rather keep West then have the cap space if DW is still in charge. We'd end up overpaying 2 role players 4-5 mil for 4 year contracts. If Bird really does return I'd have to see who's available in free agency but I'd still lean toward keeping West. I think the market is going to be tighter for free agents next summer with the new LT rules kicking in and West will have to take a pay cut, it's just a matter of how much.
                    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

                    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

                      Of course you would say that.

                        I would also say that the sun generally rises in the East and water is typically wet. But I didn't want to overload one post with so many obvious things.

                          Some could say the exact same thing to you about David West, and then you would flip out.

                            Almost everyone would say that. I use the word almost because, at this time, I only know of one individual who would not.

                              I don't hate Dwest and I don't have a nickname for West to show how much "I hate him", BWD is known for hating Tyler so of course anybody(including Mcbob) is better than Tyler at anything.

                              I remember people saying the same thing last year and they got shut down game after game, pacers4ever was one that was laughing at this theory in the beginning of the year and at the end of the year he didn't know what to say about it anymore(I expect him the deny it again).

                              By the way don't go all crazy in thinking that I'm saying that Tyler is such a great defender all I'm saying is that he is a bit better than West, both are average defenders.

                                Ask me if I care : I remember the time I was DC's hater and I got similar comments as this one, can you remind me who was right again? ...........
