That said, it also should be carefully monitored by the Mods, to ensure that it isn't a flame-fest, or just an excuse for finger-pointing and name-calling. Maybe a Mod would be interested in maintaining it, like they maintain the "Reputable Trader List" stickied thread in the Swap Shop Forum...

That's just my humble suggestion, but either way, I think this post is a good idea, and I wanted to register my opinion as a longtime Dakka member.

Am I not trustworthy, C6? Anyways, the mods have better things to do than much around with this, whereas I have nothing better to do. If they wanna sticky it, that'd be great though.


Oh no! I totally wasn't trying to imply that you aren't trustworthy. I just thought that sticky threads are usually maintained by a Mod, since it's their job to do various kinds of things like that, not individual users. If the Mods were fine with sticky-ing a post that you maintained rather than them, I think that'd be great! (save them the trouble )

Who knows what the future holds with GW and rumors though - I don't get my hopes up for anything anymore. GW's policies, on top of the avalanche of conflicting rumors for various things from various sources, just makes it all hard to think about. My head hurts...

Anyhow, good work so far, keep it up!

There is no problem with a user-made sticky, if we're convinced that poster will actually stick around to maintain it.

I think the bigger problem here is convincing the mods that this thread serves a valuable enough purpose to be worth stickying. Rumours are rumours. I'm a little perplexed at the perceived need to 'grade' them on accuracy, since there are just so many variables involved. Rumours can be accurate at the time they are presented, but rendered inaccurate later due to things changing during development. And totally made-up stuff can be judged 'accurate' if the studio just happens to go down a similar path. Should someone who made up a rumour that Space Marines would get a flyer, or Space Wolves would ride around on giant wolves be judged 'accurate' just because GW eventually decided to release such things?

Frankly, there is no way to accurately judge any of this stuff without being privy to the complete trail the information has followed. So all this list really is, is a list of people who post rumours. You're still left judging the value of any given rumour on the timing of it and the actual information it contains.

Kudos to pretre for actually rolling up his sleeves and putting in the work here, though.

While some may not think this is useful, personally, I do.

OP, thanks for doing this, and for keeping it up even with the criticisms.

Yes, we know this is not an exact science, but hey, its better than combing through hundreds of other threads, or using "oh, hey so and so said that person X was accurate...".

The timing issue is addressed by the types of rating each receives. We are only judging true, false, wrong date. If yOu say tau will be out Tuesday and they aren't, that's false. If you say 6th will have charge reactions and it doesn't, that's false.

Even Iif those things were true at one time, your rumor was false.

I'll keep campaigning though.

I think this thread will be a great resource once the kinks are worked out.

However, I don't think it can possibly present a full picture until you fold the WFB rumours & outcomes into the summary. The disinclusion of those rumours is the PRECISE reason why Harry and Hastings didn't "score" as well as some people thought they would; a lot of their rumourmongering successes involved 8th edition WFB releases.

@pretre Hypothetical question (at least for the next few days): So Beasts of War was correct on the flyers coming out (so Rumor=True), what if the sketches they showed were way off base? Do they get a True with a caveat or a False since it did not happen "as they said"?

Did we get an official confirmation from GW on the flyers? I would give them a true if they are pretty close.

I don't think there was an "original rumor monger" for the price increase. It's expected every year so it was more of a breaking news type of event rather than a speculative rumor/gossip.

BoLS has a post on their main page. Miniwargaming made a video about too. Etc etc.
