    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.

    Don't forget that everybody is allowed to post on the minor league forum and off topic forums. Also, everybody is also allowed in the chat room during the games. I know not everybody likes chat, but it is an excellent way to meet and discuss the game with various folks. So there are a couple of avenues for interaction. Lastly, you are able to read the ORG forum.

    Hope I'm not stepping on the mods toes by throwing this out there, however, we can all interact in various places on RZ.

    Does this mean we can go back to having religious and political discussions here? The peanut gallery just ain't the same.

    Re: Site Feedback/Questions

    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.

    I have no idea of how to run a message board, but that seems like it would be an awful lot of work with # of posts this website gets. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    Yes, I would agree that you are probably correct. But there are hundreds, if not thousands of message boards out there that use that method.

    Yes, that's an option with the system we use, but with a site this size, it would be a logitical nightmare for those that have to review every single post. Plus, I don't particularly like the idea of a select few deciding which individual posts are, or aren't, good ones.

    If you want to pay me for the trouble, then I'm all for it. That engineering degree won't make me cheap though.

    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. =)~
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
