• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'm just curious why all VIPER information has to be posted in a single thread? It doesn't make sense to me. As the owner of multiple large forums, I have never seen anything being forced into a single thread like that. It makes it very difficult to search and find information.

If you're not going to allow separate threads, why not at least put in a sub-forum for those particular discussions so people can post separate threads? It'll make it a lot easier to find the information you need vs. manually searching through hundreds of posts and never knowing where the topic changes from one discussion to the next. RR is a pretty powerful site. It can handle more than one thread on a particular radio system.
