Welcome to the Poker Goals & Challenges forum.
This forum is designed to bring together 2+2 posters who are interested in sharing their poker goals and challenges. Some might consider these to be blogs, but they aren't quite the same thing. A blog's format tends to have the blog writer posting and people making comments on individual posts in isolation. A forum thread is more of a continuous conversation; any comments or questions are inline with all of the OP's posts.
If it's a blog you're after, 2+2 has a blogging section here
, but make sure you read the sticky before you start a thread.
Now for the rules. We're not going to spell out a lot of them; we hope you'll use your common sense. Of course all of the standard 2+2 rules apply
. You know the drill - no pornography, no copyright violating, no circumventing the profanity filter, etc, etc, etc.
On top of the standard stuff, we'll take a little harder line on trolling than you see in some other 2+2 forums. We'll probably have some beginners in here, and we don't want their first experience to be a negative one. And remember, not everyone is as balla as you. If you play 200NL and think the guy posting his "I'm going to play freerolls and run my roll up to $1,000!" thread is lame, keep it to yourself. I'm sure there's someone in BBV you can go make fun of.
No need for "First", "Cool story Bro!", "'bout tree fiddy", and all that other LC/NC crap. We don't want to suck all the life out of the forum, nothing wrong with having a little fun, but we know you guys can do better than that.
But keep in mind that not every post might be seen by a mod. If your thread is getting trolled or derailed, that's what the report post button
to the left of the post is for. Don't assume a post has been seen by a mod if you haven't reported it, even if a mod has posted in the thread - it's easy to miss a post once in a while, especially if this forum gets as busy as we hope it will. You can use it in other people's threads as well, for obvious trolling, spam, etc.
Linking to your stats is fine, but not to your blog that you're hosting elsewhere. You're welcome, however, to put all your blog information in your profile (but not your location).
That's it for now; I'm sure these guidelines are going to evolve quite a bit over the first few months. Just use your common sense, play nice, and have fun!
Having just seen a post report that came in after a thread had been derailed for a while, I wanted to remind everyone that if you see trolling in a thread here, don't hesitate to use the Post Report
I can't speak for the other PG&C mods, but I don't read all (or even many a lot of the time) of the threads here. All of the mods in this forum also moderate other forums on 2+2, and so this one doesn't always get looked at quickly. At the same time, we want to keep this a friendly forum. Some of you might like a little kibitzing, fun trolling, etc, in your own thread, and that's fine. But if the trolling is unwelcome, let us know. And others are welcome to report posts in threads that are not theirs, although you might want to keep in mind the tone of the particular thread.
