    Boss, they're on to us!

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Keep asking questions like that and the numbers will change.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    The threat level on RedZone is currently at 0% of "NEGLIGIBLE"; Meaning posters of RedsZone should feel free to go about their daily activities of posting, joking, bickering, and complaining.

    The Easy-To-Use system (created by BOSS and GIK on an all night pixie-stick and Natty Light binge) now allows board members to plan their browsing according to the state of RedsZone-dom.

    20%-50%: HEIGHTENED -- Some risk of troll activity, possibly an impending announcement regarding the callup of Jason Romano from AAA or an Eric Milton start later that evening. SteelSD may or may not have gotten into a stat-off with M2 or WOY.
    51%-70%: ELEVATED -- Higher risk of anger on the message board possily caused by a mention of Adam Dunn's strikeout rate or the rumor of a 2 year deal with Jose Lima being signed. Possible warning of a post by Bad Fundamentals
    71%-90%: IMMINENT -- Great or almost certain risk of troll activity or impassioned whining. Likely the result of Dan O'Brien signing an extension or Adam Dunn traded for several soft-tossing AAAers with high WHIPs and low major league projectability.
    91%-100%: RUN FOR THE HILLS -- Ghost of Marge Schott returns to purchase controlling shares of the ballclub and annoucnes, as first act, that Bob Boone is coming back to manage. Paper-bag wearing while browsing the board is now manadatory.
    Championships Matter.

    That's the percentage of sac flies the guy has hit with runners in scoring position.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Its only seen by yourself and the mods and is a friendly reminder to yourself to keep cool if that % rises.

    It's an addon I installed that makes tracking "warnings", (which are given for violationing forum rules) MUCH easier for the admins/mods. For example, if a user breaks a forum rule (say masked profanity), we can give him or her a warning in that specific post that will tell us (and the user) in what post the warning occurred, the reason for the warning, and when the user was warned. Once a warning level reaches the maxmium, the user is banned for some time, depending on the violation(s). User warning information is ONLY available to admins/moderators and the user themself (ie you can't see other users' warning levels). It won't affect the vast majority of you, but it makes things much easier on us.

    It's a meter that shows you the number of warnings/admonishments the Mods and Admins have given you for failing to abide by the CoC at the bottom of every page. Everyone should only be able to see their own rating, while we mods can see everyone's.

    Basically, it allows us to more easily gauge how a Redszone member has conducted him/herself in the past on these boards, which is helpful for us when deciding how long to ban people for.

    You don't want to max out that meter...

    Paint's just itching to ban someone.

    So, basically, it's what Boss said.

    *sigh* Always in second place...
