Title: Trading Deadline Threads: Please Read
Post by: Donoghus on February 18, 2009, 04:57:26 PM
As we are all aware, the NBA trading deadline is closing in on us fast. 

Please, just as a courtesy to everyone, if you post a trade you've heard or read but has yet to be confirmed, just kindly throw a (Unconfirmed) as a disclaimer.

Once these trades are finalized and announced, we can easily edit the thread to (Confirmed).

Its just a measure to help avoid confusion at this crazy point in the season.

Just figured I'd bump this as we head down the stretch towards the trading deadline. 

Also, Jeff made a posting earlier today regarding threads in the "Trade & Rumors" forum.

Needless to say,  try and be clear with your thread titles.  It helps readers identify what threads are about and helps the staff manage things.

Thanks.

(BTW, for the most part, people have been very good about thread titles.  This is simply a reminder.  No provocation)

Please be clear with thread titles if you're starting a new thread concerning trades!!!!

Also, heed Jeff's post that is stickied in the "Trades & Rumors" forum as well.

Just your yearly reminder although everyone seems to be doing a good job of this lately.

Your annual bump. See above.

Also, it would be GREATLY appreciated to CITE SOURCES for rumors/news/etc in your title.  Help separate what is out there in media versus what is poster speculation. 

Thank you.

Also, please post trade ideas and rumors in the Transaction Ideas / Rumors forum. Trades shouldn't be discussed in Celtics Talk or Around The NBA until they're done deals.
