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.

If you're using grimdark unironically you're part of the problem.

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.

"Sometimes the Imperium needs heroes, sometimes saints and other times it needs monsters, for the dark void of the stars is cold and has bred nightmare and treachery most could never dream of. So when some call him tyrant, world-burner, apostate and butcher, remember this: He commanded armies on a hundred worlds and spanned cursed stars where saints would fear to tread, and in doing so held back the night. Monster he may have been, but he was ours and I for one thank the God-Emperor for him." - Inquistor Marr, Speaking of Lord-Errant Cromhal, Supreme Commander of the Aegisine Crusade, M.39

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

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