Re: Forecasts

I think the biggest rule I use with the site rules, is does it mislead or is it informative. The main goal of the site is to provide information, and discussion on it. The main news forum is to discuss what is going on and report findings.

We remove clutter when we can (And we can't babysit all day and night so some things do get through). Wishcasting serves no purpose except to panic and confuse people, so we created the forecast lounge to give more relaxed rules. Because it gives those that want to see what others think more options Clutter is the biggest problem. I use the site myself to find out information, and I don't like wading through junk to get it, but at the same time you've got to allow for discussion. That is the entire purpose of the other forums. Focus in the news, free form in the others.

A few people cause the most problems, most people are fine. This doesn't belong on the main thread at all so it got moved here.

The problem remains people making claims without explaining why, and without that, it doesn't belong on the main page. I just try to focus on what we are good at. There are other forums and boards that focus more on free form discussion so there is no point to repeat that here.

Note: This is NOT an official page. It is run by weather hobbyists and should not be used as a replacement for official sources.
