Ban non-picture rumours (i.e. text-based rumours)

More or less as the title goes.

We've had a few threads shared recently which have consisted of nothing more than a small selection of text, generally unsourced. Most of the time they smack of wish listing, and more often than not they generate considerable salt on the forums and lead to several pages of arguments before a moderator has to step in and pimp slap the troublemakers. It'd be fantastic if that could be neutered.

So, I'm really just proposing what's in the title; if a relatively clear picture doesn't exist, it isn't welcome.

We're not going to be making judgements on the quality of a rumour, that's for the membership to do. Otherwise we'd have to rename the section News and Board Announcements ;)

Not requesting to ban rumors?  :cry:

Text rumours, not picture rumours. >_>

The wish listing is getting out of hand, though. Not to mention the consistent Natfka/BoLS linking...

The trouble I see with banning text rumours, is that we get a lot of rumours via word-of-mouth, ergo no pictures.

In the operations of war, [...] the expenditure at home and at the front, including entertainment of guests, small items such as glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor, will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day. Such is the cost of raising an army ...

Yeah, no. Lady Atia was all text in rumours and always checked out.

We're not going to require rumors to have pictures.
