Use our rumours form to send us liverpool transfer rumours.

I'm sure this post will sink over time, but sometimes I do wish we could have 'pinned posts' with forum rules so that the Eds don't have to continue answering questions about the same players.

In the defence of the posters, its not always obvious about using the search, hence a 'pinned' post or forum rules would be useful.

As an example, I was about to ask about a link to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic which I saw on the BBC Sport website (which originated from an Italian site) . But I used the search for "Milinkovic-Savic" and saw that Ed002 had answered a post 3 days ago saying we had no interest in him.

Boom. Job done.

It's a big part of some of the "friction" between posters and Eds, on here. And I empathize with both sides. Why would an Ed sit there and repeat the same answer over and over again? Why would a poster who has just logged in after a couple of days, go back to what was posted 5 days ago? Both things are very counter-intuitive.

Could be a good idea Zed, and could possibly work. I myself, first look at the rumours page, then the banter page. I wouldn't mind adding a third page for "pinned posts". But I realize it's additional work for the Eds (certainly for Ed033), and I wouldn't ask for that, since so much is already done.

Brilliant Zeddicus.

The irony is that this gets asked every transfer window about the pinned posts. The eds did try it I believe but nobody bothered to look and still asked the same questions.

{Ed001's Note - spot on.}

I couldn't do the Eds job. Must be so frustrating to answer the same repeated questions. Its definitely frustrating to read them and I have the option to skip past them.

LFC - when were there pinned posts? few years back? I rekon it'd be worth doing, just for the sake of having the info there and then just don't post questions from posters that ask repeated questions lol. Anyways I'm sure the eds are all over it!

Ah yes, Ste, I remember that a while back. Ed001, wasn't it a 'sweep up' of all transfer rumours and responses in one page?

If so, I don't think that would work as the info is out of date within minutes with more names being added.

Instead I was thinking of pinning a 'Forum Rules' to the top of each of the pages reminding folks to search using the search box (and not be abusive etc etc)

{Ed001's Note - we have tried lots of things and no one that asks inane questions ever bothers to read first.}

Good point Tris. I guess those of us that use the search function will continue to use it, and those that won't, won't!

How about asking everyone to invest in an electromagnetic (you can get USB ones now) and an Ed has the option, when moderating the post, that if they clearly haven't used the search function, of sending an increasingly powerful electric jolt to their brain :-)

{Ed001's Note - now you are talking. Or one of those timetwister things from Loki to keep sending them back in time to just before they asked, until they learn to read first!}

I think the Loki timetwister is just fiction, Tris ;-)

Maybe you mean a time turner like Hermione Grainger used? That could be feasible. I know a mate who knows a mate - how many do you want? I'm sure we could work out a 'group buy rate' :)

I hate the off-season, on here. Posts, subjects and discussions get super hyper weird. 🤭.

{Ed077's Note - IMO everyone needs to understand that this is a RUMOURS page/site NOT A RANDOM NAMES page. Those are 2 different things. And if people feel butthurt when someone (either one of the Eds or posters) respond with something along the lines of "done to death" or "dealt with many times" then maybe The SEARCH function is for you...Rant over.

11 Jun 2021 13:59:34
If the rumor is too good to be true then, it probably is meaning, don't bother the Eds about it.

11 Jun 2021 15:03:35
I've just thought of an even better method. A tab at the top of the page marked ALL TRANSFER QUESTIONS. This could be linked directly to ED025s phone and every time a question is asked his phone would ring! He would love that, at 2 or 3am. :)

{Ed0666's Note - Eds 025 is trying to figure out how to work his pager still a smart phone is light years away for him. Be nice to him it’s his birthday today.

Ed077, I was referring to Loki and timetwisters reference above, between Ed001 and Zed. Nothing in my post in terms of a question or the search function. But I'm sure you feel good after your rant. 👍🏼.

{Ed077's Note - I wasn't responding to your post in particular. Just responding to the whole thread and discussion going on. But you seem to be suspect to the easily butthurt association it seems then..

Ed, Have we any interest in Gaston Ramirez or Arda Turan? 🤣🤣🤣.
