Re: Are there any other Reds message boards?

If you can't see any difference in the quality then why does it matter to you? Post in the SD. Make good posts. Soon you'll be in the ORG. The SunDeck is a good forum, too, not for "second class" but to get to know posters first.
It does get happier when the Reds win but win or lose is no reason for rudeness, personal attacks, foul language or beating the same topic to death. In my experience the only time negativity gets a poster in trouble is when it combines baiting, rudeness or a personal attack on a player or another poster. The admins and mods are huge Reds fans, too. The losing is just as hard for them to watch as it is for all of us. You'd think the losing would make us band together rather than attack each other.
No rules were added - a few guidelines were suggested and more game thread mods added. The rules are the same as the regular board.
So its okay in your book to insult people as long as you don't cuss? This isn't "Celebrity Roast" If insults are your style go to the Enquirer board.
Seriously, you've made your first post in 2 years so where is the problem? You can read all you want. See bigred's remark above. He gets it.
Since they own the site they CAN do what they want. And its completely false that begging and pleading are needed to get in ORG. Insightful posts, civility and contributions beyond noise are your ticket. I might also point out that the site's mods and admins don't elect ORG members although they have a vote. The membership does. The owners and admins have never vetoed a voted in member, either.
Totally false. The only people banned have been through the infraction process or they tried to use the board to spam members and promote commercial interests. And the old Germany thing is an asinine comment.
You can certainly discuss the games afterward. If there aren't any post game threads then start one up and post your comments.
Very simple. Make great posts in the SunDeck and you'll become a member of the ORG. As for ORG's terrible posts there are some for sure. And if they are rude, baiting, or attacking they get docked points, too.
1300 or 130 doesn't matter. It's quality. Are there a few posters in SD who should be in ORG? Yes. And in time they'll be there. But a lot of posts might mean just a lot of noise, too. As for your Edmonds comment. Good for the mods. If you consider that word "borderline" I disagree. It's filth. Not everyone wants to tolerate filth just because it's alright by you.
If they feel like I do reading this, they can't help it.
Confident wasn't really what came to mind when I read this...
I'm not going to even take the time to write out a response to all this that you've blabbered out. Honestly, it's not worth it and I can tell it wouldn't do any good. You don't want to see it any way but yours. Good day.
