What's up, Cagesiders?
Last night was Raw and with that, the live blog thread that's become our most popular. We went from that post getting 400 comments to the 1500 we got last night. That's awesome to see and I'm glad so many of you spend your Monday night right here hanging with us.
That said, things got a little out of hand last night. A lot of going off topic, a lot of .gifs and pictures were posted, and a lot of half naked ladies showed up in said pictures.
Let me start by saying no one is in trouble here and I'm not even trying to scold anyone. Please don't think that. Some of you know me from MMA Mania and you know my moderating policies. Going off topic is totally okay. I know Raw gets slow at points and you guys aren't bound to the show like me when I'm live blogging it. If you want to talk about something else for a few minutes, more power to you.
Normally, I have no problem with posting pictures of hot women who are half naked (Just remember that you can never post actual nudity. Showing a woman in a thong is fine but anything further than that is a no go.)
However, with the Raw live blog threads having grown so large, posting a lot of pictures and .gifs slows down the page loading time. For that reason, let's try to keep pics and .gifs in that thread to a minimum. Like, almost never. We also need to make sure we're respectful of everyone here, so if the time comes that the women who venture around these parts get uncomfortable with it, we'll have to respect that.
I tend to give you folks as much freedom as possible. You don't have to worry about me coming in swinging a banhammer around. Typically, you guys can work things out amongst yourselves and that's how it should be. Racism will never be okay and and we'll make sure to deal with it if someone starts trolling the threads.
We're growing as a community and it's great to see. Welcome new folks with open arms and try to get along with everyone. I know it's the Internet but we can all be one happy pro wrestling family.
Thanks for hanging out, Cagesiders. If you've got any questions, leave a comment and I'll answer back ASAP.
