Well I still don't understand the purpose of removing a game thread. What does it hurt to allow the SunDeck to have a game thread? Is it bandwith? If you don't want to allow the riff raff in to the offical game thread then fine. But I still don't see why you would stop a game thread from being created in the Sun Deck.
I also don't understand the "no ORG can post in the Sundeck" rule. Because after a while of getting to know everyone on the Sundeck and creating relationships and not knowing a thing about the posters in the ORG, if you offered an ORG promotion to me, I'd tell you "thanks, but no thanks" and maybe thats what you guys are going for I don't know.
I really hope you reconsider SOME of these changes you have instituted, because there are alot of smart and entertaining posters that I would hate not being able to interact with anymore.

Hope I'm not stepping on the mods toes by throwing this out there, however, we can all interact in various places on RZ.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
Does this mean we can go back to having religious and political discussions here? The peanut gallery just ain't the same.
I understand that the creators/moderators of this board have the right to run the board in any way they see fit, but it all does seem very high school-ish to me. This is the type of structure I would expect in a girls high school gossip board. Or maybe I should say the 'old gentleman's club' feel (are us girls still allowed in?....insert sarcasm here).
I'll still continue to read and post my occassional quip as it really doesn't matter to me which forum I can post in, but I do think the whole 'you must prove yourself worthy of socializing with the chosen ones' thing is rather immature.
It makes more sense to me to have one moderated forum in which anyone can submit a post, but then the post will not appear until a moderator reviews it and deems it acceptable. This is still somewhat subjective of course, but at least all topics are grouped in the same forum, which alleviates the problem of multiple threads in different forums pertaining to the same topic, and also allows everyone the opportunity to converse with all other members equally. Many other forums utilize this format and seem to run smoothly.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
Here is a suggestion. I think it has merit but who knows. Why not have a mod-for-a-week program? Let the people who are new, but not too new, get a chance to see how the other half lives. Maybe if everyone at some point in their Redszone life gets to experience the headaches and sleep deprivation that go along with being a mod there will be less griping? Maybe that is not possibly logistically. I don't know. If that is a dumb suggestion then just know that my evil twin sometimes trolls this board. =)~
A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
