So how is anyone who folks don't know supposed to ever get voted into ORG? The whole system is contingent on ORG members paying attention to what is going on in a forum they can't post at. It is crazy.
I don't know about all that. But your post got me to think. And me thinking is a rarity, so pay attention.
Here's the scenario:
A new poster wanders into RedsZone. He/she is given SunDeck status and can't post in ORG. Why would he read ORG, since he can't post there? Why after hundreds/thousands of post solely in Sundeck and making friends in SunDeck would he want to be essentially ban from posting where his "buddies' are at in SunDeck and post with complete strangers in ORG? I think I would have little incentive to move "up" to ORG status when my friends are still "down" on SunDeck. That would be like I'm at my neighborhood bar and in order to enter the fancy club down the street, I would have to say bye to the friends I know to meet people i don't know.
