Discipline at the Club

We have noticed a lot of squabbling on the site lately

Sure we all know that everyone is super-passionate about the team, but we hope you will keep your passions under control and not let the discussion drift outside cricket & RCB. We will not tolerate personal attacks and/or attempts to portray the club in a parochial manner

We are putting in place a revised code of conduct document, and for those members who are found violating the same, will be warned and/or have their privileges withdrawn temporarily

Let the fan club remain a place that everyone intends to come share their passion with other fans they have in common. Let us all maintain a conscious effort to let this club be hospitable to any fan who has come here for the first time.

@ Raghunath: Great suggestion! I guess this will put a lot of people on auto-pilot as far as their online behavior is concerned.

In naval terms also, a red flag landing means that a pilot will be grounded :).

As responsible fans, we can contribute to healthy discussions in this forum. As Allen said, everything should revolve around cricket.

@Raghu: great idea sir!

Nidhi mentioned there is going to be a 'big' change in the site. With a 50-50 distribution to cricket n other activities.
I m expressing a long time dissatisfaction of the current site design.
I know Jennings is the boss of the team, S.Mallya is a boss of RCB. Their views are very important. But i cant understand why their posts shud be taking up so much space for weeks after weeks while a fan's blogs or discussions be given such less highlighting. I hope the new design will highlight cricket n fanatic blogs more. Also make somthing like a 'shout it out' column where people want to give small messages or opinions like voting for them, best wishes etc...They need not be part of blogs or discussions. lets those places be for more knowledgeable postings. Even a column for 'fun activities' for amusing stuff, captions, quizzes etc.
@raghunath- i liked that rating idea. so even a well rated blog be given a 'recommended' tag depending upon its knowledge shared/importance or quality of post.

You should have 2 types of Bloggers:

1) Green Channel Bloggers (whose posts will not be moderated)
2) Red Channel Bloggers (their posts will be released only after moderation)

If a green channel blogger posts anything inflammatory (or substandard post, even if not inflammatory), he/she will be relegated to 'Red Channel' statu and will have to work hard to earn back the Green Channel status!

As of today, I think I'm Green Channel - but there will be times when I'm given the red card and I've to earn my way back! :-)

If this turns out to be workable, you can extend this to comments too!

All this will require back end changes, new blogger tool, etc. But you have to aim for it - even if it takes time.

Also, you should introduce 'Ratings' on a scale of 1-5 on every post. That will motivate bloggers to think before they ink.
