    Something along the lines of "Don't spam the forum with 198714982749 million fightnews.com announcements"

    Those in favor ?

    Those opposed?

    I actually don't read fightnews, I don't see what the big deal is. We can't discuss it here because its on fightnews?

    I'd rather see an open sticky about upcoming fights.

    Thats a great idea. Perhaps fight results as well. It could be the same list even. Just a monthly list of fights that gets updated as the bouts are completed.

    Might be a hand full though. Still a cool idea

    It's no big deal really. At least this time Jmyers is actually a good poster who discusses things. In the past with this, they normally just spam and don't even conversate.

    My apologies for posting so much fightnews stuff. :redface:
    It's just that I see the stuff on there and don't know if everybody knows it or not, so I post it. If there was a way to link to the item by itself, I would just post a link. But you can't do that, so I copy and paste. I do think a Sticky for Upcoming Fights and Fight Results would be good and I'd be glad to post in there whatever things I see or hear about.

    I don't mind copy-pasting, just chill on the amount of threads in a day.

    OK.....I will try to restrict the copy-pasting. I'll just paraphrase anything I see that might be newsworthy.....speaking of which, anybody know who won the Ward-Williams fight?

    No you can copy-paste. I prefer that to linking as it makes it look like spam. We've had a problem with fighthype and other site employees registering here, posting a single tag-line, then a link to their articles.

    Sherdog.com doesn't appreciate that as a News site because they're not paid sponsors of the Boxing Forum.

    How does Fightnews actually work?

    In the past, it looked like reprinting of press releases from promoters.

    Now, it looks like press releases from the WBC.

    Years ago, I used to go to Fightnews daily. It seems so different now.

    I know. But, I wanted to ask a question about fightnews, so I used the search function.
