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.

  • Rough Start For Pacers, Hibbert All Bound Up Together

    http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2012/1...d-up-together/

    MILWAUKEERoy Hibbert struggled and smoldered on the court as the Indiana Pacers dug their hole deeper with nearly every trip downcourt in their blowout loss to the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

    But the 23 minutes he spent on the Pacers’ bench, compared to his 25 in the game, were just as bad. Hibbert rolled his eyes at calls and non-calls, slammed his towel to the floor when Bucks’ shooters got friendly bounces and covered his face time and again. At one point, his 7-foot-2 self was folded into the open chair next to him, face down, anguishing through a butt-kicking that got to 32 points at one juncture against Milwaukee.
    Then, the Pacers center beat himself up pretty bad in the visitors’ dressing room, too.

    “It’s very frustrating,” Hibbert said, cooperative but looking a little tortured. “It’s very hard to get into a rhythm … personally. I think I’m doing good defensively, but offensively I need to get going and help the team out. I want to do more than I have been. I have to figure out a way to get that done.”

    Notorious as his own worst critic, Hibbert isn’t overreacting to either his performances or the Pacers’ unexpectedly sour 3-6 start. He scored seven points and had eight rebounds against Milwaukee. He took only six shots and made three, took only four free throws and made one. He’s shooting 38.6 percent, including nights of 1-of-7 and 3-of-15.

    The loss Wednesday was the fifth time in Indiana’s past six games that Hibbert scored in single digits, and the fifth in six in which he grabbed fewer than 10 rebounds. His minutes have been down, too; sometimes due to fouls, sometimes due to games like this one, when there was little use in keeping him or any of the Pacers starters around for long.

    “I want to play,” Hibbert said, shaking his head. “I want to be involved. It’s frustrating. Obviously we were getting our tails handed to us. But I want to be out there playing and be able to affect the game. To sit out and have the guys on the bench take the brunt of it … as a leader and as one of the older guys on the team, you want to do more.”

    There are those around the Pacers who wonder if Hibbert already is trying to do too much to justify the four-year, $58.3 million contract he got as a restricted free agent over the summer. After all, Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova – who also cashed in with a five-year, $40 million deal in free agency – has struggled too (6.4 ppg, 27.9 FG percent), possibly nervous about demonstrating his worth.

    It’s possible that Hibbert consciously is trying to pick up slack from Danny Granger, Indiana’s sharpshooting small forward who is out for three months with a knee injury. But Hibbert swats those suggestions away as if they’re lazy floaters.

    “I’m not forcing anything,” he said. “I’m not standing out there putting up a lot of shots. Six shot attempts. I could understand if I was catching it and forcing up bad shots.

    “I’m just not getting into a rhythm.”

    Larry Sanders
    , the Milwaukee big who has improved significantly this fall, said some of that was by design. “We did a good job tonight just knocking him off his position,” Sanders said. “He couldn’t really get where he wanted his feet set on the block. I think a lot of guys have targeted in on him, getting him off his position. You push him out a little bit, he struggles, because his go-to’s are those turnaround jump hooks. If he can’t get down there, his game’s kind of limited.”

    Indiana coach Frank Vogel is trying to plug leaks up and down his rotation, so Hibbert’s poor start to 2012-13 – and mental toughness – are just two of the problems. “It’s confidence and adjustments to new roles by pretty much everybody on our team except our two big guys,” Vogel said. “Roy and David [West] are dealing with everybody else on the team adjusting, and them trying to keep a rhythm while that’s happening.”

    West isn’t free and clear, either, scoring a season-low seven points in 23 minutes and shooting 10-for-37 over his last three games. “Everybody’s got to own some of this,” the power forward said. “It’s not totally on [Hibbert]. We have to do a better job of getting him some easy stuff. He shouldn’t have to work as hard as he works. If you watch some of the other big guys in the league, they’re able to get going early because they get easy stuff. Not have to fight to catch it and fight to make a move. All of that is part of his struggles, but we can’t just put it all on him.”

    They don’t need to. Hibbert’s beating them to it.

      Re: NBA.com article about the game yesterday and Hibbert.

      This should impact those who felt that Big Money's issue was a lack of effort or desire. The Larry Sanders quotes say it all, and Hibbert would be wise to take the constructive criticism: He has one move, needs to add more ways to score and he needs to stop getting pushed around by power forwards.

        Sanders on Roy stuck out to me...

        I hope Roy takes this out on the centers around the league "targeting him," if he can.

          I brought up in the postgame thread how Ekpe Udoh was completely owning Roy physically on a couple possessions when the Pacers had the ball. He was determined to deny Roy the ball and he succeeded in doing it. Roy simply could not get in front of him and put himself in a position where he could catch a pass. Udoh was completely dominating him physically and out-muscled Roy to keep him out position. There's one possession that sticks out in my head where Udoh owned Roy for about 20 seconds.

            Re: Rough Start For Pacers, Hibbert All Bound Up Together

            Another recent article, someone will probably re-post it as its own thread, but regardless:

            http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ba...7572--nba.html

            With the Chicago Bulls undergoing an unfortunate waiting period with star guard Derrick Rose on the shelf, and the Boston Celtics seemingly rebuilding on the fly after watching Ray Allen take his senior act down to South Beach, the Indiana Pacers were everyone's pick take the East's mantle as The Second Greatest Thang Besides the Heat. After all, the Pacers gave Miami a good show in last May's second round loss to the Heat, and internal development combined with a full year of workhorse coach Frank Vogel's machinations seemed to line all the breadcrumbs toward a second seed season.Just nine games in, the Pacers might still be well on their way to that spot come spring, but the start to the 2012-13 season has been an absolute miss. The squad has lost six out of nine games to begin the campaign, and even with 73 to play that record hardly seems to resemble how awful the team has looked. Yes, it is holding its own defensively, and we're all mindful of the fact that scoring swingmanDanny Granger will be out for a while due to some worrying knee issues, but the Pacers reek.
            And with Granger away from the media's glare, and Paul George too green to take on all the slings and arrows, max contract-outfitted Roy Hibbert is left to answer for his team's slow start. True to form, and somewhat making up for the dodgy start, the All-Star big man is holding his own in terms of explanation. From NBA.com's Steve Aschburner:
            " […] 23 minutes he spent on the Pacers' bench, compared to his 25 in the game, were just as bad. Hibbert rolled his eyes at calls and non-calls, slammed his towel to the floor when Bucks' shooters got friendly bounces and covered his face time and again. At one point, his 7-foot-2 self was folded into the open chair next to him, face down, anguishing through a butt-kicking that got to 32 points at one juncture against Milwaukee.
            Then, the Pacers center beat himself up pretty bad in the visitors' dressing room, too.
            "It's very frustrating," Hibbert said, cooperative but looking a little tortured. "It's very hard to get into a rhythm … personally. I think I'm doing good defensively, but offensively I need to get going and help the team out. I want to do more than I have been. I have to figure out a way to get that done."
            Based on the eye test alone, Hibbert is doing well defensively. Heck, the entire Pacers team appears to be holding their own on that end, even down to the routinely in-air Tyler Hansbrough, as they rank fourth out of 30 NBA teams in terms of defensive efficiency. It's a remarkable stat considering the group is last, per-possession, in causing turnovers on that end; but the combination of stout field goal percentage defense and good enough rebounding keeps teams scratching for air as they attempt to claw their way toward 91 points.
            The problem is that the Pacers are often left having to claw their way toward 88 points. The team's 87.8 points per game ranks last in the NBA, and this isn't a case of blue collar-pace altering how we judge this squad, because Indiana is 28th in the NBA in offensive efficiency. The team looks as bad as Washington, the Andrew Bynum-less Philadelphia 76ers, and Orlando. And because the Pacers were expected to win as many games as Washington, an Andrew Bynum-less Philly team, and Orlando; the viewing experience is all the more shocking.
            There is no movement — none — to this team's offense. The caveat that Danny Granger (hardly a Hondo Havlicek in terms of moving without the ball) has been out for each of these nine games doesn't really go a long way towards absolving the team of looking like it has absolutely no clue what to do once it bothers to cross the half-court stripe. It's true that George Hill is far from a pure point guard, and the recently-acquired D.J. Augustin hasn't even made a quarter of his shots on the season, but this doesn't for a second explain the offensive confusion this team can't seem to work its way out of.
            That "work" is sticking point amongst Pacer fans. The fair-weather locals have yet to notice — I re-located to Indiana a few years ago and the typical sports fans in the area won't pay attention to this team unless it goes up 2-1 in a series against Miami again — but Pacer die-hards were apoplectic on Twitter during Wednesday night's loss to the division-leading Milwaukee Bucks while complaining about the team's lack of hustle and interest. And this wasn't some group of pull-up-yer-bootstraps gym teacher-types, but knowledgeable NBA observes who don't rely on clichés to make a point.
            Chief among them is the great Jared Wade at Eight Points, Nine Seconds. He's not one to overreact to players taking it easy during one of 82 regular season games, nor one to obsess over a season seemingly without rehabilitation just two weeks into a months-long campaign, but there is a reason he only gave Hansbrough (a player he hasn't paused in criticizing quite a bit in the past) and little-used guard (as in, "played four minutes all season") Orlando Johnson anything more than a failing grade in the team's performance on Wednesday.
            It's early, to be sure, but none of the players on this team have been proven to do anything more than surprise away from the glare of the spotlight and also take advantage (briefly) of a hurting Miami Heat team last May. The issues are obvious — the team doesn't move away from the ball, it does miserable work in screening for big men like Hibbert and David West to work from their comfort zones, and its sub-40 percent shooting ranks it last in the NBA. It's a lack of everything — continuity, movement, spacing, touch, precision and confidence — that marks a great or even good NBA offense.
            And it's not just Danny Granger's absence. The Pacers have quite a bit to work out if they ever want to resemble the hopeful unit that made Miami's life so worrisome six months ago.

              Also, the guys around the league are well aware how much money the other guys are making. Everyone in the NBA knows that Roy got a big payday this summer. He definitely has an extra target on him now. Guys want to beat up on the young guy making a lot more money than them, who they might think isn't worth it.

                  We are 4th in D, 1st in shooting%, 2nd in rebound, worst in shooting, worst in scoring. Now we see where the problem is - Offence.
                  We dont have reliable 3pt shooter. Opp team simply needs to mark the paint stopping West and Hibbert and Hill. It is a much harder season for Hibbert and West as the opp team knows how to D us. We need to find a 3pt shooter to give them more space or PG drawing more double team to create space.

                  We have progress in D but we needa fill the shooter spot. Create space outside.

                      It sounds like common sense, but Shaq is 100% correct in his assessment. I know Larry wanted Roy to "read the defense" and preached that to him, but Roy's big problem is that he waits too long and gives the defense a chance to set.

                      He should try moving right away.

                        team of looking like it has absolutely no clue what to do once it bothers to cross the half-court stripe.
                        That's the issue. Guys are NOT getting good looks and are NOT just missing makeable shots. The shots we see the Pacers get do not look like some of the shots other teams get, and that's going against the Pacers good defense. It's fully possible that if the Pacers had to play against their own defense that they might not score 20 points.


                        And Imawhat I just said that same thing about the low post game in the "Solutions" thread. It's not just Roy, it's the plays that run off the Roy-post setup. He's waiting for stuff to unfold, the guys are slow to read what to do to help him, and the whole thing is just a mess that makes it really easy for the doubles to time his moves.

                          Shaq said it all - "GET MEAN ROY"! Roy allows himself to get pushed off his spot way too much. Even though he is often overmatched strengthwise - he still needs to fight for position and if he does he'll start getting better shots and fouls on the other team.

                              Key in the Sanders quote is "we". Roy is double covered every time he touches the ball. Until we sign Quentin Richardson a guy known as a knock down shooter that won't change.
